Spacecruiser Inquiry
6-WEEK ONLINE STUDY BEGINNING MARCH 2ND

We will present a study/inquiry group based upon the teachings of A. H. Almaas found in the book “Spacecruiser Inquiry.” This is a complex book and the sessions are designed to practice with “bitesized” selections to help connect and integrate the teachings.
Each session will present a theme to develop the art and skill of spiritual inquiry. Among the topics explored are: Goals and comparisons, inner and outer guidance, love of the truth, inner perception, attuned guidance and finding basic knowledge. In all explorations we seek to see for ourselves personally and orient toward the discovery of our authentic selves.

Past Events:

Taming Your Inner Critic January 17-February 21, 2021
Many people find that there is an inner voice or feeling which accompanies them in their lives.  This voice tends to criticize the person when she or he does something, or fails to do something.  Left untended, it can affect choices, the emotional field of a person, and even the posture.  It sounds like it is trying to help, but most people can see that, overall, it is undermining their self-confidence and natural ebullience. This class will explore this Inner Critic and use study and experiential exercises to lessen its influence. 

Online Retreat November 6-8, 2020
During this online retreat, we will be using meditations, teachings and personal inquiry to explore the quality of Basic Trust.  Basic Trust is a non-conceptual confidence that there is something fundamentally good about the universe—wishing us the best.  This quality allows the soul to relax in the moment with what is arising and allows a natural unfoldment to your deepest true nature.

Weekend Retreat January 3-5, 2020
This is an exciting opportunity to study a modern spiritual path in a small group. Come join us January 3, 4 and 5. The theme for the retreat will be personal will on the spiritual path.
