Welcome to the home-page of The Theosophical Society, Victoria, BC (Canada) located in beautiful Victoria on peaceful Vancouver Island. We hold monthly free public talks and discussion meetings on Monday afternoons, from September to June in a rented venue.
It has been a long pause these past two years since Covid-19 pandemic disrupted our public form of discussions where we would meet in person to share our views on science, religion and spirituality.
It is exciting to let you know that we are meeting again beginning September 19, 2022. We look forward to welcoming all those who may share a common interest and compassion for uplifting of humankind.
Please browse the drop down menu on this website for full details of the local Victoria Theosophical Society and how you may participate in and attend the group discussions.
We would genuinely enjoy meeting new people and listening to any worldly viewpoints of a spiritual nature that you could share with our group of like-minded individuals.
May the light on your path be a guiding direction for others also seeking a little encouragement to focus on, just one step at a time.
If you are interested in a timeless world-view for modern times, then the idea of Theosophy which sees mankind as a whole, becoming more effective, more creative, more loving, beyond what we are now, perhaps The Victoria Theosophical Society may be of interest to you.
In Victoria, the first Theosophical Society was formed in 1892 and was called “The Kshanti Theosophical Society.” “Kshanti” means “patience sweet, that nought can ruffle.” “In the absence of egoism, there is nothing to be offended or disturbed. The mind is like a light which burns steadily, unaffected by outer conditions.” H. P. Blavatsky
There has been an active Theosophical Society in Victoria, BC since 1892. For most of the 20th century, the society was directly affiliated with the International Theosophical Society with its headquarters in Adyar, Chennai (Madras), India. Since the mid 1990s the group has been independent with friendly, informal ties to all other theosophical groups world-wide, while maintaining through our associate membership in the North West Federation, an indirect link with Adyar. We are an independent theosophical group registered as a bona fide non-profit educational society with the provincial and federal governments.
Continuing through to the present the group has been holding public meetings on a monthly basis on Mondays from September to the end of June. Currently we meet in an attractive, harmonious venue at 3787 Cedar Hill Road, Victoria, BC. Our group possesses a library of theosophical literature, including main-line and more current theosophical and spiritual books which unfortunately is in storage at this time.
Theosophical members when compared to the population of Canada, and even all countries in the world is a relatively steady group. Discovering the divine light which is infinitely present in our world burns bright to those who seek its wisdom through theosophical study.
