“Mystic Poets —Yeats And Tagore”
with Brian Burns
William Butler Yeats of Ireland and Rabindranath Tagore of India/Bangladesh are perhaps the two most towering figures of 20th Century Poetry, especially Spiritual Poetry. Amazingly, they were also best Friends and had profound effects upon each other’s lives, careers, spiritual evolutions and politics. They were Religious Pacifists, yet called upon to become the reluctant Spiritual Leaders of their respective Country’s revolt against the British Empire! Both knew HPB and Colonel Olcott, were present and took part in the founding of the Theosophical Society. Both (especially Tagore) became close friends with Mahatma Gandhi. Join us and learn more about the lives, the times and especially the Poetry of these two incredible Human Beings!
Brian Burns, author of Kwan-Yin Heart and other books, is currently President of our lodge.

“Hermann Hesse’s Journey To The East”
with Coach Cary Bayer
Perhaps no other novelist of the 20th century inspired more Americans to seek the spiritual life than the Nobel Prize-winning German writer Hermann Hesse. The longtime pacifist’s passion for peace resonated in the hearts of so many millions of young people who were deeply opposed to the war in Vietnam. His quest-for-enlightenment novels Siddhartha, Narcissus and Goldmund and The Journey to the East were particularly inspiring to the counterculture movement of the ’60s. His interest in Theosophy strongly inspired the writing of Siddhartha, one of the most influential novels of American youth in the ’60s. In time, Hesse became the most widely read and translated European author of the 20th century. The Steppenwolf Theater in Chicago and the Magic Theater in San Francisco were both named after elements of his 1927 novel Steppenwolf.
Cary Bayer is the author of Literary Yoga: Writers & Higher Consciousness and Higher Self Meditations; a former teacher of TM; and the founder of Higher Self Healing Meditation.

“A Course In Miracles (ACIM) Study Group”
with Markus Edmiston
“Every decision I make is the choice between a grievance and a miracle. I release all grievances now and choose a miracle,” (a shift from fear to love as the foundation of my perception). This core concept of ACIM is simple, but not always easy. We will approach the Course as a new ancient language, so we can converse from our Origin, and into our One Self dis-solve (remembering no problem is real in eternity). Please bring your copy of A Course In Miracles if you have one.
Theosophist Markus has had several ‘lives’ (he likes cats and dogs, but as a Leo born in the year of the Tiger, his personality seems to be closer to a cat, but with more laughter!). His background includes running an International Equity Sales & Trading Dept on Wall St, being an Equity Analyst in Europe and running the Esprit Center in Hudson N.Y. A regular speaker at our lodge on various topics, he has also facilitated ACIM Study Groups at Artserve, Wholefoods Community Room, Unitarian Universalist and Unity Churches in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area.
