The Course of Enlightenment was created for an extraordinary type of individual; the individual who wishes to maximize their potential and awareness on every level of their being; this includes, the spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical.
The course is designed specifically for the needs and journey of each individual student. No two course are the same. This is serious work but it should not be take too seriously. In the end it is my hope that you will gain wisdom, spiritual contentment, emotional balance, mental clarity, personal health and be able to make a positive difference in the lives of others and make the world a better place to live for future generations.
This is not a rigid “in the box” program filled with “propriety” secret information. You will be guided to experience all the media and the work of specific artists and art forms including; dance, music, painting, sculpture, theater, philosophy and more. You will be directed to watch specific talks on-line and to access the work of specific teachers relevant to your journey.
In addition you will have access to thousands of pages of transcripts from Q & A sessions I have held over the last four decades.
Each of these is written to guide you and to help you explore how the defining and clarification of your intention, your personal life vision may lead to what is known in many spiritual traditions as “Enlightenment.”
Clarity of intention is what gives meaning to life. With clarity of intention you have the key through the door in time and space where you may define your vision or life mission and bring it to fruition. At the moment you are ready, willing and able to act on this intention, it comes into being spontaneously without discipline or willpower. I like to describe this as “actualized intention”. Whatever you can conceive of and which is a natural aspect of what it means to be human will happen to and, for you through actualized intention. All that is required of you is that this intention be manifested every second of your being through thought, word, and deed.
The ideas in course book are not new. They are familiar concepts restated sans unnecessary cultural baggage. The Course of Enlightenment is a simple stew of Eastern and Western Wisdom drawn from Platonic thought, physics, game theory and some of the non-ritualized elements within Taoism, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, Christianity, Post-modernist thought, the mystic meditative traditions, and shamanism – all injected into the new digitized reality that we live in today. I have supplemented these with a few realizations, gleaned from my forty two years as a teacher,
If you are seeking absolute or universal “Truth” or a Guru, you have come to the wrong place. The thread that weaves through the Course of Enlightenment is the idea that reality is what each person chooses to construct, as his/her mind and inner being explores interactions with other people, places and things. If a person can remain detached from these people, places and things while living though love and compassion he/she will have entered into the realm of the spiritual. To get more specific this sense of reality can be framed as a spiritual approach that transcends traditional religion. Something I call a “Wisdom Path”
It is my intention in creating the Course of Enlightenment to present ideas and practices that will help you to magnify what is already spiritual within you. In addition I want to help you bring what is authentically spiritual but of which you were previously unaware into your daily life. As this spiritual component is magnified and embraced you will have the support you need to assist you in creating a practical order and harmony to the messy chaos that often passes for normal living.
Concerning the spiritual aspect of the work? The information and guidance offered through the Course on Enlightenment is not meant to be a religious perspective on anything nor an attempt to tell you what your spiritual beliefs ought to be. The concept of Wisdom is generally misunderstood by those who are drawn to the dogmatic and rigid aspects of religious thought. What I like to call the “Wisdom Path” does not conflict with religion at all. In fact it is a Practice that can enrich your authentic connection to a formal faith. Here we will explore the sacred, the divine, love and spirituality and wishes to do so free of the chains of formal religion. When I speak of formal religion I refer to the rites, rituals, ceremonies, dogma, holy books, the clergy and any of the other accoutrements and trappings of so-called spiritual practice where one person or an organization tells another person what is or is not spiritual.
No matter what your beliefs, the ideas and practices presented here can be invaluable in helping you to create a grounded sense of spirituality in your life.
In a life defined by a hunger for spiritual knowledge I have spent the last forty-two years seeking out and studying with many great teachers. With their support and guidance I have explored the writings and lives of important visionary thinkers. I have listed a few of their names below so that you may know of them as I introduce you to the Wisdom Path. They have been important in my explorations, introspection, and personal development. The ideas, writings, lives, and teachings of these men and women, when studied through self-reflection and meditation, has helped me create a fulfilling life of spiritual intention, emotional balance, great friendships, love, kindness, compassion and the greater fulfillment of my potential each day.
My greatest influences include:

Weiner PH.D, Lao Tzu, Chuang Tzu, Sun Tzu, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Moshe Feldenkrais, Varian Mackey Fry, Shunryu Suzuki, René François Ghislain Magritte, Rumi, Milton Erickson M.D., David T.
