Theosophy is Fun



Return to Homepage



Theosophy Cardiff is an independent body within the Worldwide Theosophical Movement.


Most of the Theosophical Groups in the UK are affiliated to one of three Theosophical Organisations. These are the Theosophical Societies with their headquarters in Adyar India or Pasadena USA and the United Lodge of Theosophists with headquarters in New York


A recent structural change has taken place within the Adyar based Theosophical Society with the decision by the Theosophical Society in England to withdraw from the European Federation of National Societies.


Info from Independent Theosophy Groups is welcome. We are happy to list Theosophy Groups within the British Isles on this page, irrespective of affiliation. If you are in the process of forming a group or just wish to put feelers out to gauge interest in your area, you are welcome to use this page. We can also provide a useful link if you have a Theosophy Website.

Tekels Park to be Sold to a Developer


Members of the Theosophical Movement worldwide are dismayed to learn that this Jewel in the Theosophical Crown, Tekels Park, is to be sold to a developer.


Concerns are being raised about the fate of the deer and other wildlife and there has been no comment on this issue from Tekels Park Estate Limited, who manage the Park on behalf of the Adyar based Theosophical Society in England.


Tekels Park is sanctuary for  animal wildlife including deer, foxes, squirrels, badgers and stoats, and for birdlife including sparrowhawks, woodpeckers, tawny owls and many more. There are many species of trees including 3 types of redwood, ginkgo, eucalyptus, red oak, tall magnolias and lebanese cedars.


There is also disquiet over the sale of the St Francis Church Building which has been a place of worship since 1931. The Building was originally a gift from Josephine Chambres, a Church and Theosophical Society members. The congregation will have to negotiate with the developer to continue to worship in their church.


There is confusion as the Theoversity moves out of Tekels Park to Southampton, Glastonbury & Chorley in Lancashire while the leadership claim that the Theosophical Society in England will carry on using Tekels Park despite its sale to a developer.



Future of Tekels Park Badgers now in Doubt

Theosophy Cardiff Cancels its Affiliation

to the Adyar Based Theosophical Society




Changes in the Structure of

The Adyar based Theosophical Society


The Theosophical Society in England has

withdrawn from the European Federation

Does it affect Cardiff?


In response to a number of enquiries, we wish to clarify

Cardiff Theosophical Society's position regarding a recent

change in the structure of the Adyar based Theosophical Society.


Cardiff Theosophical Society in Wales is not affiliated to

either the Adyar (India) Based Theosophical Society or the

Theosophical Society in England and is therefore unaffected

by the recent decision of the Theosophical Society in England

to withdraw from the European Federation of the

Adyar based Theosophical Society.
