Hello Ozren, welcome to the Theos-L.

I do not know anything about any related material on the Web. 

As a member of the Theosophical Society in America (Adyar), I believe 
there are no specifically theosophical meditation techniques.

Arcane School founded by Alice Bailey offers well structured 
and rigorous correspondence 
courses in meditation and other aspects of the Ageless Wisdom.

Raja Yoga is a well known, reliable, and respected Eastern system of 
meditation. My favorite books on Raja Yoga include:

1. Rammurti S. Mishra's "The Fundamentals of Yoga"--a very accessible and 
sensible handbook by an accomplished master of raja yoga; to be studied 
in conjunction with his "The Textbook of Yoga Psychology"--a good 
translation of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras including also a readable 
introduction into the philosophy of Samkhya and Raja Yoga. 

Another accessible and very well written manual of meditation is:

2. Christmas Humphreys' "Concentration and Meditation"--the author tries 
to integrate Eastern (Hindu and Buddhist) and Western techniques into a 
kind of a universal synthesis.
