What All Programs in The Universal Upward Path Series Have in Common.

Spiritual Sustainability:

Within each weekend program we prepare one or more core experiences to activate your soul nature. First, you will learn to awaken new energy, new consciousness, new creative fire, new life purpose, new healing and wholeness. Then, learn to direct that energy upward. Activation is the power of upward awakening.

After my program?

Leave with the skills to channel newly awakened consciousness into daily activity. This will feel like living life on a higher octave—more vitality, more creativity, more wisdom and power.  Return home equipped with the strength, stamina, and capacity to sustain your newly awakened spiritual momentum.

What if I need more support?

Your program instructor is invested in your long-term spiritual growth. He will be your spiritual ally in the months and years to come. Programs facilitate new spiritual contacts and participation in an online yoga and meditation community. The spiritual path isn’t a solo journey—make your experiences here last a lifetime by forging connections with greater spiritual networks.
