Theosophical Order of Service

What is Theosophical Order of Service​?

The Theosophical Order of Service was founded in 1908 by Dr. Annie Besant, a very dynamic social activist in England and India. She was then the International President of the Theosophical Society (Adyar).

We are a non-profit organisation whose members are its greatest resource. They work as unpaid volunteers. Our motto is “A union of those who love in the service of all that suffers.”

For more than a century, Service has been the only focus of TOS. TOS groups all over the world work in a variety of areas including peace, social welfare, education, healing, animal welfare, ecology, arts and music.

TOS Members may work on individually selected activities or on group projects, sometimes in partnership with other groups.

While most service work is carried out in local communities, members also contribute to regional or national projects. Some TOS groups also raise funds for major, long-term projects organised by TOS groups in other countries. The aim of TOS members is altruistic service that springs from their inner spiritual work. It is service with no intention of benefit to themselves or to their own agenda.

There can be no greater purpose in life that to serve – service to the One in many forms. It must not be so-called, limited service, but real service, which is direct and sincere, in which the consciousness of self is forgotten

Meditation Groups

In Belgium, two healing meditation groups are active now, for TS members exclusively. A Peace Meditation is organised regularly: this is open for the public.

We join fund raising initiatives for humanitarian projects or disaster relief efforts. 

Teddies for Tragedies

We are still looking for creative and good-hearted souls to join our Teddies for Tragedies project:  making cuddle teddy bears (knitting, crocheting or sowing), which we ultimately donate to small children living in difficult or even traumatic circumstances.

Anyone who likes to join one of our initiatives, please get in touch.
