Theosophy Whanganui’s next public talks are on Sunday 15 July from 2pm, and we have an afternoon extravaganza!

Note that some Sunday dates are different to and replace our usual monthly 2nd Sunday date. Our speakers are the well known and respected Julia and Orest Tarnawsky who run the Southern Lights Centre in Akaroa.

There will be two talks with an afternoon teabreak inbetween, and an open dinner following (venue to be confirmed pay for self). Julia will give the first talk on ‘Generational Astrology’ then Orest on ‘The Electric Universe’.

2pm Generational Astrology - A case study of the natal astrology of 6 young people and the social/global implications of the placement of the outer planets in their charts. Approx 60 minutes. As a teacher and private- practising psychologist earlier in life, Julia’s interest has always been in psycho-spiritual development. She taught in the Adelaide Lodge and on several speaking tours for TSNZ in New Zealand.

On this tour she hopes to engage participants in the living ness of theosophical ideas as they influence the life, seeing these as relevant in providing an ‘anchor’ and a ‘compass’ in our rapidly changing world.

She has a Master of Science degree in Esoteric Psychology from the University of the Seven Rays. Julia lives and teaches with her husband Orest at the Southern Lights Centre meditation school at

3:30pm The Electric Universe - The gradual realisation of the significance of electricity in the human form was initiated by Harold Saxton Burr - Blueprint for Immortality - Electric Patterns of Life. Since then much investigation has contributed to our understanding. Several researchers and their work will be discussed. Essentially knowing how to enhance this “electrical flow” may be useful in promoting well-being. Approx: 60-90 minutes.

Orest’s background includes a Diploma in teaching, Studied Sculpture, Bachelor of Arts (visual arts), Teacher of art/photography, Master of Science in Esotericism (esoteric psychology). With tertiary study in visual arts and education, Orest had an early career as an art teacher and sculptor.

Deep interest in the Ageless Wisdom teachings led him to attaining a Masters of Science in Esotericism through the University of the Seven Rays. Combined, these developed Orest’s passion for and skill in mentoring those on the quest towards awakening consciousness and in teaching the Ageless Wisdom teachings through creative expression, study and meditation to all that enquire the way. He has a particular interest in plasma, sound and electricity in their microcosmic and macrocosmic aspects.

Venue: Community Arts Centre 19 Taupo Quay back river entrance in Awa room. Free entry (gold coin donation appreciated). Enquiries to Kirsty or txt 0212123819.
