The Naarden Declaration
During the four-day conference, all who were present worked together towards "The International Theosophy Conferences 2014, Naarden Declaration." Making use of the input of all participants a number of representatives from various Theosophical traditions compiled the draft declaration. On Monday, August 18, the last day of the conference, the result was presented to the assembly and it was received with much enthusiasm and constructive feedback.
After the closing of the conference the draft declaration was also published on the ITC website, so participants had the opportunity to give it further consideration and send complementary suggestions. The ITC Board integrated all reactions, but also tried to maintain the spirit of the declaration as it was presented during the conference, leading to the final version below.
Considering that International Theosophy Conferences Inc. is a platform where Theosophical organizations and Theosophists meet, stimulating each other to spread Theosophy in the world, this declaration is meant as a joint statement, reminding us of our brotherly cooperation during the ITC 2014 Conference in Naarden. It expresses our shared vision for the future and summarizes our commitment and the way we would like to work together towards that future.
The declaration is neither meant as a mandate, nor as a dogma.

Having respect for the diversity and freedom of the various Theosophical streams, we will endeavor to act as a Beacon of Light for bringing Theosophy in accordance with* the teachings of H. P. Blavatsky and her Masters to the world. In an undogmatic manner and through harmonious cooperation we will strengthen the Theosophical Movement for the benefit of humanity.
In the spirit of unity and brotherhood, we endeavour to make Theosophy a living power in the world.
We commit ourselves through learning, training and cross-pollination to popularize and keep the teachings alive for future generations.
*IN ACCORDANCE WITH: in harmony with – in conformity with – consistent with
The ITC board realizes that it is virtually impossible to state in words, that what actually took place during this historic and successful conference. Our shared and most important objective is to keep the spirit of ITC 2014 alive.
