Has your spiritual journey been a long and winding road? Are you looking for a heart-based community that you can really resonate with? One that is filled with sincere beings who are coming to truly know and live as who they really are? If so, then we invite you to join us for a grand adventure.
Journey of Realization: Opening to Enlightenment is a five-week online course that will launch you on an accelerated path of awakening to the truth of who you really are so that you can embody that truth ever more fully in your human life. This is the first in a series of signature courses offered by the emerging Academy for Spiritual Enlightenment. Future courses building on this one – including “Enlightenment in Action” and “The Enlightenment of Money” – will dive even more deeply into the nature of enlightenment, and beyond.
Each week we explore themes related to illumination, connect meaningfully with a community of fellow travelers, and receive empowerments of loving presence and consciousness. By the end of the course, you will be engaged with a new “operating system” that opens to ever-greater freedom and awakeness.
All classes are hosted on the Zoom video platform, and each one lasts for 90 minutes. The classes are recorded, and the recordings are shared with course participants within 24 hours. There are also several bonus sessions in which we engage in meditations, offer and receive additional energy transmissions, and answer questions on how to apply what we are learning in everyday life.
Throughout Opening to Enlightenment, there are opportunities to ask the burning questions and receive practical guidance for your adventure of awakening. Additionally, you are encouraged to connect with other participants through small group discussions and self-organized meetups.
Here is a map of our journey:
Week 1: The Spark of Enlightenment. We begin by exploring the value of enlightenment in contemporary life as well as what is meant by words such as enlightenment, collective enlightenment, ego, and self-realization. We also experience some of the more direct ways that radical spiritual growth can be supported, including practices of silence and contemplation. Then we receive loving empowerments of consciousness and energy that assist each of us in stepping decisively onto the path of enlightenment with joy and true openness to receive the fullness of life. We conclude with a meditation to support integration.
Week 2: Perfecting Our Deep Decision. Together we make the deep decision to awaken fully, to go all the way on the journey of realizing – making real in our lives – the profound nature of ourselves and the world, and we open to the profound embrace of Love. We make this decision both individually and collectively, on behalf of the whole of life, and we bring all of ourselves into complete agreement with this chosen direction. In the process, we receive the first set of enlightenment empowerments followed by practices for developing coherence and wholeness, accessing joy, and accelerating our awakening in everyday life.
Week 3: Clearing the Way. Having made the deep decision to awaken fully, we learn to recognize what is in alignment with our individual journeys and how to engage with that which is not, or is no longer, in resonance for us. We explore practices for staying clear through specific situations that participants are invited to bring forward. Our focus is on applying liberating wisdom in a practical way to the content of our lives, and on integrating the spiritual and “mundane” aspects of experience so that there is no longer a perceived separation between them.
Week 4: Bringing Forth the Truth Within. We observe the power of the insight “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you” and explore methods that help us to discover our innate gifts, which are our essential contributions to life. Then we make the deep decision to bring forth our true gifts and whole selves in service to life, including nature, other beings, and ourselves. We learn how to perceive what is emerging through and around us so that we can harmonize our offerings with the creativity and abundance of the eternal presence of Love.
Week 5: Progressing on the Path of Living Enlightenment. We receive a final set of empowerments and review an inspired new model for navigating our decisive transition from identification with the sense of separate self to the actual living of enlightenment. Putting the pieces together, we now have a foundation that is built on the bedrock truth of our being, a map for the onward journey, and an awareness of how to respond to the range of experiences that may arise. We address any remaining burning questions and offer ways to stay connected, continue to support one another, and grow enlightened communities.
