This is incomplete list, constructed through indexes for these journals, partial in the cases of Sunrise and Venture Inward, of the articles I wrote before 1999. These 17 were outnumbered by shorter articles in more ephemeral journals, The Eclectic TheosophistTheosophical Network News and Theosophical Branchings, for which there are no online indexes.
