Welcome to theosophist!
The intention of this site is to offer give space to theosophical voices, to give witness to the vitality of theosophy and the reality of spiritual life. What I love about blogs is that their temporal nature reduces formality. This is a conversation, with technology allowing participants from all over the world to engage each other.

Katinka Hesselink – Netherlands
Katinka Hesselink is a member of Theosophical Society-Adyar, who has taken her interest in theosophy, Buddhism, Jiddu Krishnamurti and spirituality in general online. She was born in 1974 in The Netherlands. By profession she is a teacher of math and chemistry – at middle school-level, though she now makes a living doing webdesign.
In September 2004 she started studying ‘world religions’ at Leiden university still in The Netherlands. Her specialty is Buddhism and she intends to get her Bachelors in the summer of 2008.
Govert Schuler – Wheaton, IL, USA
I’m a native of the Netherlands now living in the Chicago area, not far from the Theosophical Society in America. At high school I dabbled in theosophy and other alternative spiritualities and mind expanding substances. While traveling I discovered Krishnamurti and took him quite serious. Later I converted to a neo-theosophical group and was deeply involved with them and the Ascended Masters. The latter requested me to emigrate to the USA, which I did in 1990. My passions lie in phenomenological philosophy, parapolitical investigations, a theosophical evaluation of Krishnamurti, theurgical operations through mantra yoga and figuring out in what organization the Masters made their latest beach head. And I’m for world peace, and very concerned that the coming economic meltdown will endanger that.

Joe Fulton – Phoenix, AZ, USA
Hello, my name is Joe Fulton. I have been active in the Theosophical Society for almost 25 years. My approach to Theosophy is rather eclectic and driven by the quest to integrate modern thought with Theosophical concepts, as inspired by the work of H.P. Blavatsky and the “Mahatma Letters to A.P. Sinnett”. My other passion is technology. I live to keep up with, and understand technology, while trying to understand its social ramifications. I have been able to successfully forecast developments in Internet technology, including Web 2.0, Web 3.0 and future trends, all using technological and fact-based analysis. In my day job, I perform Technical Support and Quality Assurance roles for a major software manufacturers. In addition, I hold IT certifications from Microsoft and CompTIA.
Within the Theosophical world, my efforts revolve in several areas. The first involves efforts to promote investigation and commentary regarding the social consequences of technology in light of the Ancient Wisdom; Secondly, the application of technology on the operation of local group work; Thirdly, a continuing effort in assisting Dan Noga with administering the Theosophical Community site. I am a member of the Phoenix, AZ Study Center.
