 Trapped in our troubles: Although many of us in the West are physically—and perhaps financially—free, we often feel spiritually, mentally, and emotionally trapped. This course offers us the tools and techniques that allow us to free ourselves from these burdens.  

The course covers four areas

  • The 5 Dimensions of Experience the five areas through which we expirience life.

  • The Theater of Life: learning about how the material world fucntions, and identifying our everyday problems within that matrix.

  • Identifying our Errors of Livingpinpointing the disintegrating factors of ours lives and how they reflect spiritual errors.
  • Recognizing our Spiritual Gifts: uncovering our innate self-organizing fuctions that perpetuate longevity

  • Holding our Spiritual Intelligence: learning the tools and techniques to reverse the disorganizing process through the practices of awareness, intuition, will, and mental imagery.
  • Implementing our Life Plan: putting the tools we learned into action, in order to live a long and healthy life.

Changing our orientation to life: The GEMS model teaches us to think in a new way — not by logic, a closed linear system — but through analogy: an open, expansive, and holistic form of thinking. Plus, it’s practical; engaging in spiritual life alleviates pain and suffering by reshaping our habits and disintegrates our conditioning. In learning how to draw on the invisible universe to sustain and nourish us, we are renewed and free to live a burden-free life.

What ails us? We start by examining our everyday life problems – happening in our Theater of Life. From there we swing over to explore the errors of living that have birthed the daily problems; we then relate the errors back to their source – the spiritual errors that have birthed the errors of living. Finally, we apply the remedies to correct our errors. We hone our ‘spiritual intelligence’ through the practices of awareness, intuition, will, and mental imagery. We learn to think in a new way -- not through logic, a closed linear system -- but through analogy, an open, expansive, wholistic and synchronistic form of thinking.  

Spiritual Life is practical: Engaging in spiritual life is the most practical life on Earth; one that reshapes our habitually conditioned, painful suffering, where many of us are yoked, like oxen, to a plough of drudgery and profound unhappiness. With this practice, we renew ourselves by learning to draw on the invisible universe to sustain us in a newly experienced way.  

My Teachers: I draw on my own long intensive years of study as well as to the works of seven sacred souls within the Western spiritual tradition: Colette Aboulker-Muscat (my direct teacher of blessed memory); Valentin Tomberg; Robert Rhondell Gibson; Friedrich Weinreb, Henri Corbin, Medard Boss, and Paul Watzlawick.
