84th Annual Convention
“Living and Working with Angels,
Nature Spirits and Devas"
Dear Fellow Theosophists and Friends of Theosophy,
Welcome to the Texas Federation’s 84th Annual Conference. The West Houston Study Center appreciates the opportunity to host this event featuring author Kurt Leeland!
Theosophical teachings posit the existence of a parallel evolutionary scheme to that of human beings, populated by nonphysical intelligences that are responsible for the creation and maintenance of life on our planet and its associated nonphysical realms--the deva evolution. The term deva is Sanskrit for “shining one,” and is roughly equivalent to what Westerners call angels. This evolution, which includes nature spirits at the lower end and mighty archangelic beings at the upper end, has exerted a fascination for artists, writers, and musicians for centuries, challenging them to depict such beings, their nonphysical realms of being, and the states of consciousness associated with them.
In this workshop, Kurt will outline the Theosophical teachings on nature spirits and devas, from Blavatsky and Leadbeater to Geoffrey Hodson and Dora Kunz. We’ll sample depictions of nature spirits and devas in art, literature, and music and Kurt will tell stories of personal encounters with them, suggesting ways we can become more aware of their presence and how to work with them for the benefit of all beings.
Kurt Leland is a National Lecturer for the Theosophical Society in America. He is also an awardwinning composer and the author of eight books dealing with subjects such as astral projection, neardeath experiences, and mystical experiences associated with music. His latest book is Rainbow Body: A History of the Western Chakra System from Blavatsky to Brennan (2016). An internationally known expert on the life and writings of theosophical leaders and clairvoyants Annie Besant and Charles W. Leadbeater, Mr. Leland has also compiled and annotated Invisible Worlds: Annie Besant on Psychic and Spiritual Development (2013) and an authoritative edition of Leadbeater's classic, The Chakras (2013).
