   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

Discovery Class – The Heart of Imagination

with Rue Hass


Three Week Online Class February 8 – 28, 2018



We say, “Oh it is just my imagination.”  How do we know what is “true” and what is “just made up?”  How are thinking and imagination different? 

 And—why does it matter?

 Consider this:

           Thinking is a processing of information that maintains a separation between the thinker and the thought.

           Imagination is an act of entering into and sharing the identity, the life of a concept, another being, or a situation, so it becomes alive and can take shape and substance within you, and perhaps then within the world.

Imagination is not only a creative tool, but it is also one of perception.  We experience the world through our subtle senses, as translated by our imagination. 

Right now we are better at imagining our doom and disconnection than we are at imagining possibilities. But the future literally depends on our imaginations to help us learn to re-create wholeness and partner with the process of renewal. We need to learn how to take more responsibility for generating a vision of wholeness and the means of bringing it into being.

This is not only about imagining our future or imagining what our society might look like in the years ahead. It is an essential imagination about ourselves.

This online class will help you to understand the art and spirit of your imagination, our human imagination, and the imagination of the earth.  We will explore how to imagine into the diverse worlds of animals, technology, creativity, healing, and what it means to be human.

We hope that you will join us to open into your own sacred art of imagination. It will light up every area of your life!
