Tekels Park to be Sold to a Developer
Tekels Park is a 50 acre woodland estate near
Camberley, Surrey, England. It is a spiritual retreat,
a sanctuary for wildlife and has a consecrated
church. It is currently owned by the
Theosophical Society in
who are selling the park to a developer.
The rush to sell Tekels Park to a developer appears to be based on dire figures but who, other than the leadership, has seen the relevant detailed financial information on which it is said that the decision to sell the Park is being made ?
The Theosophical Society membership isn’t exactly being bombarded with information about the sale. Does anybody know what’s happening and who’s doing what ?
Will anyone directly involved in the sale talk about it ?
Tekels Park has been the Theosophical Society’s Spiritual Home for decades and yet within the last year members are told that it now has to be dumped as quickly as possible and that no possible alternative can be considered.
Does anybody support the decision to sell Tekels Park ? Why is the sale being carried out quickly and quietly with no proper debate ?
Professional advice came out against selling Tekels Park in 2009. What were the details of this advice and why was it disregarded ?
Why hasn't the Theosophical Society in
The Thesophical Society leadership are negotiating some sort of deal by which Theosophical organisations will be able to use the park after it is sold. This may make the sale to a developer more acceptable to some members but is clearly a high risk strategy. In the event of any agreement not being maintained, the Society will be faced with the option of engaging in costly legal proceedings or moving out. There appears to be no strategy for the situation which might arise if the park were to be sold on to another owner.
Could an undertaking not to resell Tekels Park, or only
to resell with the agreements retained, be enforced ?
Has anyone thought of this ?

How will the Theosophical

Diploma in Theosophy
The sensitive and highly relevant subject of Compassion for Animals is conspicuously missing from the Diploma in Theosophy Course now being offered by the Theosophical Society in England. Emails to head office at 50 Gloucester Place, London about this omission are ignored. In fact all communication on the subject of Tekels Park is ignored.

From the Website Owner:- Dave Marsland
I am dedicated to the future of the Tekels Park animals and have created this website in support of saving them.
My main concern in posting information on this, and related websites, is to draw attention to the sale of the 50 acre sanctuary for wildlife to a property developer and the inevitable deaths of the animals by slaughter or habitat destruction.
The killing of the Tekels Park animals would be an obscenity and as a long standing student of Theosophy, I cannot turn a blind eye.
I maintain that the Tekels Park management and the Theosophical Society in England leadership have attempted to keep the fate of the Park and its wildlife from public attention and the attention of the Theosophical Society in England members.
