The Aim of the European School

is to provide opportunities in Europe to study the original teachings of modern theosophy in order to ensure the continuing preservation and dissemination of the esoteric philosophy as recorded in the writings of H.P. Blavatsky and related source literature. Furthermore, the School invites students to examine the relevance of theosophical ideas and ideals for current developments within the field of comparative philosophy, religion and science.

The European School of Theosophy was launched in October 1982 with a one week program of intensive study. Subsequent Schools have offered similar programs, the basis of the work being the modern theosophical classics, especially the Secret Doctrine and other writings of H.P.B. and The Mahatma Letters to A.P. Sinnett. The School is not part of any organisation, theosophical or otherwise, and is solely organised on the basis of loyalty to the original teachings and objects of the theosophical movement. The School has no regulations or officers and is being led by an autonomous group of students who only wish to call themselves 'organisers' of the School.

The language of the School is necessarily English but its location may vary from year to year depending on the availability of suitable accommodation. Since its inauguration in England, the School has met in Austria, Germany, Holland, Spain, Greece, Italy, Hungary, Belgium, Holland, Israel, Scotland and Wales.
