The ITC is host for a diversity of spiritual organizations. The Centre is also used by different meditative organizations such as yoga schools, Buddhist groups, sufi’s and ceremonial groups. In order to preserve the spiritual atmosphere of the ITC these organizations need to have comparable aims and work along similar core values as the Centre.


As a spiritual study and retreat Centre, we invite people to work on the process of inner transformation, often described as a path, an inner journey. A path without a map is like a journey without direction. We therefore invite you to take meditative walks on our beautiful estate along some of the main features of the Centre.


The ITC, the European home of the Theosophical Society Adyar (TS) has a unique atmosphere. All its activities are related to the higher aspects of life, the Source of Wisdom and Love. It is thus connected with the finer spiritual energies. Visitors, when open and receptive to its potent stillness, can therefore be greatly helped and inspired.
