One of the main focuses of these discussions is theosophy, which is defined in the Merriam-Webster dictionary as “teaching about God and the world based on mystical insight.” These discussions are held twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays, which include concerts, film screenings, Tibetan monks, and guided meditations.
