Edward Abdill, noted author, speaker and Vice-President of the Theosophical Society in America, is visiting Baltimore to give this talk, after two appearances at the Washington DC Lodge. A description of his program: “In The Voice of The Silence we are told to kill out desire. Yet surely it must have some purpose. If we look closely at the obvious and subtle forms of desire, we may discover both its purpose and the dangers that are a threat to our own Inner Self. We may also discover how the most subtle form of desire, inner selfishness, can harm the work of the Theosophical Society. By examining the nature of desire we may learn to use it rightly.”

Mr Abdill is author of the book The Secret Gateway: Modern Theosophy and the Ancient Wisdom Tradition, described as “the perfect guiding tool for all those on the quest to self-discovery and self-transformation.” This book and his 11 DVDs on various subjects are available through Quest Publishing.
