About the Presentation

Taoism has much to teach us today. What is the Tao? And what is Taoism? Both questions will be addressed along with some fascinating central concepts associated with the tradition, and a number of rich, inspiring quotes from classical Taoist texts which we will reflect on together using a meditative approach.

About the Presenter

Linda Oliveira is the President of the Theosophical Society in Australia and Editor of  the quarterly journal Theosophy in Australia. A second generation Theosophist Linda joined the Society shortly after hearing a talk by  the philosopher J. Krishnamurti at the Sydney Town Hall in 1971. Her life-long passion for Theosophy has taken her to the international headquarters of the Theosophical Society where she served as International Vice-President from 2008 to 2011, and to the Krotona Institute of Theosophy, where she was a student for several terms in 1981.

A second generation Theosophist, Linda is passionate about Theosophy for its potential to thoroughly transform an individual when reflected upon deeply, and practiced with heart and mind.  First appointed as an Additional Member of the Theosophical Society's governing body, the General Council, in 1996, she also served as National President in Australia from 2002 until January 2009, a position she has again held from January 2012.
