About Us

Who We Are

We are a group of people who understand that abundance, fulfillment and joy, are the natural state of all beings. It is our aim to bring individuals closer to this state by bringing the ancient teachings and practices of the East into the modern world.

The principles of these teachings may be understood in numerous dimensions ranging from the practical to the deeply esoteric. They may be practiced by people in the course of everyday life and they may be distilled to their essence and practiced by those who dedicate their lives exclusively to their spiritual path.

Our Philosophy

All that is, is God, the Divine, manifest as the world and unmanifest as pure potential. Because the Divine is without limitation, the world is without limitation. Anything is possible. There is more than enough for everyone. Competition is irrelevant: you can have what you need or want without anything being taken away from anyone else.

Because all that is is Divine, you are divine: You are without limitations. Your power is inherent. Through your power of conscious choice (free will) aligned with the Divine, you can achieve anything. Anything you can imagine — prosperity, happiness, freedom and fulfillment — you can achieve.

What We Do
