   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

Journey Into Fire: Awakening to the Light of Self

 January 18 – February 21, 2018



Julia Spangler




For most of us, spirituality is something we can easily divorce from our everyday activity.  It can be relegated to a deep unspoken place in the inner recesses of our minds and hearts. It might be brought out for holidays, or for those sacred days decreed by a tradition.  But what about the rest of the days of the year?  How can we access the spirit which lives and breathes at the center of us in daily ways in order to be more fully ourselves?

The fact is that we are sacred beings in embodiment and our personal, human self is as sacred and as valued as the non-physical, transcendent aspects of ourselves. Everything that Incarnational Spirituality has to offer stems from this recognition of the light within each individual life. By understanding the innate power of being incarnate, we are invited to step into the knowledge of our own Self-Light, that inner sense of value and sovereignty that recognizes its capacity to shine and add to its light to the world.



Journey Into Fire explores practical ways to bring out your light and be more fully your best self. Each week there is an exercise that strengthens one of your innate capacities to manifest the light of your sacred self. This personal practice will be expanded by our online discussion and four live and recorded webinar sessions. You will learn about

  • The Power of Presence
  • Standing as a practice of Sovereignty
  • The Spectrum of Love and how to use it
  • Holding to create a space of possibility

These practices help you re-imagine your identity as one who can stand in your strength in the face of life’s changes.
