Welcome to the Lorian website. We’re very happy you’re here, and we hope you will find many things of interest and use to you.
As you may have noticed already, this is an information-rich website. It’s designed to be an ongoing resource and tool for you to use in learning about and practicing Incarnational Spirituality, and for gaining insights into working with the “energy ecology” that surrounds us through such skills as energy hygiene, energy activism and manifestation.
