   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

Nourishing Your Energy Ecology – A Lorian Discovery Class

October 9 – 15, 2017

with Susan Sherman, MSD




“In Incarnational Spirituality, we start with the body and work out from there as our body is our connection to the earth and to the world around us.  It is also in many ways a connection to our inner life and the spirit within us.”  

David Spangler







This Discovery Toolbox course, Nourishing Your Energy Ecology, will help you develop a greater awareness of the energetic relationships of your daily life and clear away some of the “psychic lint and pollution” that may have collected.  You will learn more about how to create positive, radiant, thriving energy environments and a healthy wholeness for yourself.

Incarnational Spirituality honors the full range of our human incarnation as the sacred emergence of Love.  With this understanding wherever we are in this moment, we can observe not only our physical presence, but can also notice our inner state of being.  What does that inner state tell us about our sovereignty? about our thinking and feelings? about connection and relationship with ourselves, with others and with the world around us?

You are invited to explore a more acute awareness of your personal energy ecology and discover practical ways to renew and revitalize a ‘wholeness of spirit, mind, heart, and body’ that can be available to you in your daily life. 

Join me to take a step that will nourish your personal energy ecology system!



Nourishing your Energy Ecology 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:

  • Downloadable written and audio presentation of exercises
  • Daily practice with guided audio recordings
  • Opportunity for online discussion
  • One shared audio teleconference session (recorded) on Saturday, October 14th at 8 am Pacific Time.
