CREATIVE PROCESS OF THE INDIVIDUAL

This class is based on the book of the same name which explains the nature of creative action, beginning
with the formation of the universe and ending with a vista of infinite possibilities attainable by the individual. Troward argues from basic principles we all understand, and shows how these principles may be carried into the future. He relies on the maxim that “Principle is not bound by precedent,” and by the premise that we are not only able, but also required, by the law of our own being, to take a more active part in our personal evolution than has ever occurred in the past.

IT’S ALL GOD

In his book, It’s All God, Walter Starcke has managed to take one of metaphysics greatest truths and put it into a form and flow of words, which is easy to grasp. Starcke has done a masterful job of clarifying the necessity of finding a realistic balance between living in the Absolute and the Relative world: It’s not a matter of “one or the other”, but rather, discovering the key to doing both at the same time. His concept of the Double Thread is the key element.

MAGIC OF THE SOUL

Combining the integrative principles and techniques from spiritual psychology with the power of the Science of Mind teaching, Magic of the Soul offers a dynamic training opportunity for students. It answers questions like, “Why haven’t I completely healed, even though I have been using spiritual mind treatment for years? How do we deal with fear that comes up before and after treatments? How can we embrace our shadow while affirming our divinity?” Magic of the Soul asks students to affirm and experience their inner divinity and at the same time honor their humanness and appreciate the beauty of who they are in the here and now, on their path to higher and higher expressions of divine nature. The most common theme throughout the text is to look for the magic, the opportunity for growth, and the sacredness in every situation in life, especially the challenging ones.
