At the Feet of the Master

The Spring Program for the Krotona School of Theosophy in Ojai, California, offers a four-part series with Michael Gomes titled “HPB Teaches: A Comprehensive Guide to the Writings of Helena P Blavatsky.” The sessions will go from May 3–6, Tuesday–Friday, 10AM–noon. The course description says:

Although the name of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky is familiar to many, the content of her literary output, aside from her main works, remains less known. Michael Gomes, editor of a number of her works, offers an intensive seminar for those who want a more complete overview of her writings. Using his anthology, HPB Teaches, as the sourcebook, participants will have the opportunity of accessing HPB’s writings firsthand with him.

Over the past few years Michael Gomes has been giving a weeklong seminar somewhere on an aspect of HPB’s work. In 2010 it was at the Springbrook Centre in the Australian rainforest, in 2009 it was in Budapest, Hungary, and in 2008 with Joscelyn Godwin in Venice, Italy. This year it will be in Ojai, California. His long expertise—forty years of research and a quarter century of publishing—makes him a reliable guide for understanding Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, and no doubt what he has to say on the subject will be of interest.

Other presenters for the Krotona Spring session include the physicist, Amit Goswami, and his wife, Uma Krishnamurthy, who will give a performance of Bharatanatyam, classical Indian dance, and the Gnostic scholar, Stephan A Hoeller, who will have a program on “C.G. Jung’s Red Book and Alchemy.” Information about registering for the course can be found here.
