Title supplied by cataloger. Theosophy is a doctrine of religious philosophy and metaphysics, which originated with Helena Petrovna Blavatsky. In 1875, Blavatsky, along with Henry Steel Olcott, William Quan Judge and a few others, founded the Theosophical Society in New York City. Theosophy teaches that what is known as human is actually a Spiritual Nature classically called the "Monad", or Higher Self, and that all individual beings, regardless of the kingdom in which they exist (human, animal, vegetable or mineral), are involved in an inextricably interconnected single life. The Theosophical Society was strongest in the 1920s, with around 7,000 members in the United States. View of the Theosophy Hall, an unassuming white 2-story building on the corner of 33rd and Grand Ave. The main entrance appears to be on the left side of the building (barely visible between the trees), with an arched side entrance along the right of the building. A large, brown sign sits atop the building.
