We have made the decision to close the Leeds Lodge for the foreseeable future. As far as we can discern the decision to close is being adopted by all Lodges across the country, including the London HQ. We will review the situation with due reference to government guidelines.
Please note that the Gary Kidgell lecture scheduled for 6 July has been postponed due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation. We hope to host Gary's talk sometime in mid-September. The Leeds Lodge will therefore be closed until the autumn.
In the meantime below is the link for on-line lectures each lasting 45 minutes starting on Sunday 7th June, as part of the on-line European School of Theosophy.
Tim Wyatt will be giving his talks on Sunday 7th June and Sunday 12th July, Dr Edi Bilimoria will be giving his talk on Sunday 14th June and Dr Paul Barker will be giving his talk on Sunday 21st June.

'Title to be Arranged'
Tim Wyatt (Leeds)

Details Later.
A lifelong spiritual explorer and a student of the esoteric mysteries, occult sciences and the Ageless Wisdom. Tim Wyatt has spent five decades working as a journalist in all sections of the broadcast, print and online media. A dedicated student of consciousness research, he is the founder of the Leeds-based School of Applied Wisdom.
As its name suggests The School of Applied Wisdom focuses on understanding practical aspects of the Ageless Wisdom, identifying how we can use key ideas and cosmic laws in our everyday lives. Each session examines how esoteric theory can be applied successfully to virtually all aspects of modern human activity. The school runs interactive workshop sessions for those interested in gaining a greater depth of understanding about themselves and the wider cosmos.
Tim travels extensively giving talks, seminars and workshops on occult topics to the Theosophical Society in England and many other groups.
Despite or perhaps even because of, having no recognised academic qualifications whatsoever, he has won awards for his plays and television documentaries. Tim is also the author of numerous novels, short stories, articles, non-fiction works and poetry. He is the founder of several publishing companies and two record labels. His other diversely chequered roles include film director, radio talk show host, car designer, public relations consultant, funeral celebrant, TV and film actor, musician, death counsellor, barman, teacher, DJ and advisor to government departments.
Tim is an avid walker, animal lover, book and art collector and naturalist. Apart from brief stints in London, Thailand and North West England, he has spent most of his life in the Yorkshire Pennines. These days he makes only rare and reluctant visits to cities.
Tim is the Treasurer of Leeds Theosophical Society, and a National Lecturer for The Theosophical Society in England.

Postponed to mid September 2020
'Greek Mythology: Pathways to Higher Consciousness'
Gary Kidgell (Dundee)

Gary utilises the content of classical esoteric and religious teachings, together with the works of Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell and others, as a means of illustrating how the tests and trials, and the successes and failures encountered by the heroes of Greek myth represent the archetypal challenges and rewards related to our own spiritual development and growth. His presentation will consider how we can relate the symbols and imagery of the Greek hero myths to our own lives to obtain insight and inspiration for our own existential ‘hero quest.’    Gary has written a new book on this subject which will be available for purchase on the day.
Gary Kidgell is a professional esoteric astrologer and a teacher and lecturer in metaphysics. He has studied esoteric teachings for the last thirty-five years. Gary has lectured extensively throughout the UK and in Europe. His recently published book entitled The Inner Journey: Pathways to the Higher Self' has been distributed internationally. Gary is also a member of the Claregate College Metaphysics group and the Director of Studies for their two audio-visual online courses: 'Foundations in Esoteric Studies' and 'Esoteric Psychology: The Seven Rays'.
Gary is a member of Dundee Theosophical Society, the former Organising Secretary of the Theosophical Society in Scotland and a National Lecturer for the Theosophical Society in England.
