Phillipa Rooke 7.30pm March 2 (Postponed)

We take a glimpse into the Tao Teh Ching and its different translations, place in history look at the principles which Laotse presents in this work: Tao, Teh, and Yin Yang, and relate them to our daily lives.

The presenter: Phillipa is the former President of the Brisbane Lodge and a former Queensland State Representative on the National Council. She has given talks at the Brisbane Lodge and at various Lodges and groups around the State, at national conventions and at the School of Theosophy.
She is interested in the arts, in particular music and textiles both contemporary and traditional. Former lives were in singing, felt-making and contemporary circus. Her Theosophical passions range through meditation practice, esoteric spiritual thought, and the ever-unfolding journey towards revealing the Reality of the essential unity of all things, of which the brotherhood of the first object of the TS is an expression.
