Leeds Theosophical Society
Half a century ago belief in reincarnation in the West was firmly a minority pursuit - the weird and cranky world of a few spiritual eccentrics. ut there has been a remarkable sea-change. Reliable surveys in recent decades in Europe and the US showing growing interest in this idea. Recent research reveals that up to a third of people now describe themselves as ‘spiritual but not religious’ with most of these also believing in re-birth of some kind. Some polls even show more people believing in reincarnation than in God! This is progress.
However, the majority of people remain unconvinced. Even providing ‘physical’ proof of non-material realities still fails to persuade diehard sceptics that re-birth is a reality. Those of a materialistic rather than spiritual persuasion smugly assert that anyone entertaining such ridiculous notions are crazy or at least deluded victims of wishful thinking or ‘primitive superstition’? Nothing – not even repeated cycles of birth, death and re-birth – convinces the cynics that we experience more than one visit to the classrooms of Earth School.
Nevertheless, evidence for re-birth is powerful if not overwhelming – ranging from potent past-life memories and deep-seated phobias to Near Death Experiences, physical scars and much else besides. Humanity’s expanding intuitional abilities have also convinced many that they have been here before and will return again. In addition, there has been a vast amount of research conducted since World War II and much of it this highly persuasive. Tim Wyatt has been sifting through the vast body of supposed ‘evidence’.
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.
