   Lorian's programs in Incarnational Spirituality are like a breath of fresh air. I have learned to engage my whole self-heart, mind, body, soul and personality-in creative partnership with the world as it is. I find an intimate space of generativity opening within me that supports my relationships and passion for my work in integral ecology. Thank you David and the loving Lorian faculty!" —AA, WA

   There is something basically useful about all of this. The class offered a framework that was structured in a safe way with a demonstration of a path for connection that works." —KL, UK

   The class gave me reassurance that I am moving in the right direction because it helped me feel more of myself. The tools offered strengthened my own inner knowing." —EJ, UK, France

   We have been–and still are–in a time of alarms and noises, posturings and persuasions, tumult and tempest. To be of service in the world today, we must stand in a place of calm steadiness. In the midst of the storm, we must take time to look beyond to the mountains and the stars, the ancestors and the descendents and just appreciate the vastness of the world and of time and cosmos in which we live. Whatever happens tomorrow, the sun will rise, clouds will form, rain will fall, creatures will be born and die, and life goes on. We will love and create, our inner power undimmed, our spirit as Sacred as ever." —David Spangler

Collaboration with Subtle Worlds


An Online Class with David Spangler

October 19 – November 29, 2017



This is an advanced class with David Spangler combining the principles of Incarnational Spirituality with the art of partnering with non-physical allies.  Drawing on over fifty years of experience, David will cover three themes:

  • The nature and purpose of collaboration with subtle worlds
  • How to contact and partner with spiritual allies
  • A “zoology” of the subtle worlds: who and what is “out there”

This class will be six weeks in length.  During this time, David will present the major themes and lessons through a series of recorded video talks.  There will also be written text material, exercises to practice, and plenty of opportunities for discussion, sharing, and the answering of questions.

In keeping with the theme, the class will be collaboratively facilitated and assisted by David’s own subtle colleagues, his spiritual allies and partners in the non-physical dimensions, who will offer their own perspectives on the topics under discussion.

REQUIREMENTS:  This class is not an introductory class.  It assumes each participant is familiar with and has an understanding of the basic principles of Incarnational Spirituality, such as Sovereignty, Self-Light, and Generativity. as well as familiarity with David Spangler’s work with the Subtle Worlds as a “second ecology” of the Earth. Such familiarity can come through having read David’s books, such as Journey into Fire, Subtle Worlds: An Explorer’s Field Notes, and Working with Subtle Energies, and/or through having taken one of Lorian’s classes such as Journey into Fire , Working with Subtle Energies or earlier classes such as Path of the Chalice. 

If you are new to Incarnational Spirituality and the idea of the Subtle Worlds, we recommend one of our core classes such as Journey Into Fire, or that you begin with one of David’s books named above, which are available from Lorian Press in the Lorian Bookstore on our website.


Collaboration with Subtle Worlds will be held on our online education site, powered by Ruzuku where participants have access to the online discussion and materials 24/7 for the duration of the class. Course includes:

  • Weekly practice with exercises
  • Downloadable written presentation of exercises
  • Opportunity for online discussion, questions and answers
  • Twice weekly recorded webinar talks by David.

DAVID SPANGLER, MCS is a spiritual explorer, teacher, writer, game designer, husband, and father.  Originally studying to become a molecular biologist, a childhood contact with subtle worlds blossomed while he was in college into a collaborative relationship with inner beings. He left college at the age of 20 and began his lifelong career as a freelance mystic, teacher, and explorer of subtle and spiritual realms.  In the early 1970’s he became a co-director of the Findhorn Foundation community in Northern Scotland and, in 1974, a founder of the Lorian Association.  His work with both his non-physical colleagues and his Lorian associates has led to the development of Incarnational Spirituality.  He is the author of over twenty books.
