The word Theosophy has been used for many centuries, it is of Greek origin meaning Wisdom of the Gods (theo – of Gods, sophia – wisdom). Wisdom cannot be enclosed within words, it is a Truth which must be discovered and experienced by each one for themselves. Theosophy, sometimes known as the Ageless Wisdom, is the Light which shines through the many-coloured lamps of religion. It is the thread of truth in scriptures, creeds, symbols, myths and rituals. Divine Wisdom is One, the paths towards it are many.
The Theosophical Society in Scotland is a part of the world-wide theosophical movement with its centre in Adyar, India. The Society is dedicated to the comparative study of religion, science and philosophy and the practice of the Art of Self-Realisation. The Society is composed of members of different religious backgrounds who are united in a belief that mankind is a spiritual family and that humanity can have a glorious future through a compassionate and intelligent way of living.

Alchemy: The Science of Spiritual Transformation
Thursday 19th September
Although almost exclusively associated with turning base metals into gold, alchemy has a far deeper and richer significance than producing shiny ingots. This art-science is more than merely transmuting metals – it’s about a wholesale spiritual transformation of the individual – and indeed the world.
