Many thanks for all this info. I shall have a good look.
What I meant was that there seems to be no official TS method that beginners
can practice. There is the ES but that is for certain people only as I
understand. Dipping into all the areas you mentioned to find the appropriate
way is fine for seasoned Theosophists who know where to look but to actually
take some of these and weave them into a method and then teach them to
newcomers will probably result in a slap on the knuckles. I personally would
find such a method great for passing on to the young students who come in
looking for that.

woman who came yesterday.

I agree with what you say and would not get involved in that area and I am
quite open with people about that. I will ponder on all this and see what I
can come up with.
