   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

Practical Magic: How to Shape a Life You Love

Access your Creative Power to Shape your Life 

 September 6 – October 17, 2018

with Freya Secrest and Rue Hass

‘The manifestation process helps me to feel into what wants to blossom in my life organically, what looks like it is ready to bud, or grow in new ways.  Through these principles I have learned how to feel into the questions, What am I moving into? Where is my energy going? How is my life mirroring the deepest truth in me?”  – Rue Hass

This Manifestation process engages me in a partnering relationship with my world. It speaks to a living universe that is responsive and interactive. Manifestation is a growing, interactive process of exchange.” – Freya Secrest



The old form of Manifestation is often seen as a way of getting something. The old form of Magic is about will and control.

But from the perspective of Incarnational Spirituality, we generate an inner magic that is useful in all areas of our lives.  This magic at our generative core helps us blossom. Essentially, manifestation is an act of ‘incarnating’ a new pattern of ourselves into reality.

The “New Magician” (you!) isn’t someone who controls the world and shapes it to their will but someone who befriends the world to create a mutually-enhancing neighborhood.

This class will highlight the four key tools within you that help to strengthen your invisible, underlying interconnectedness in the world around you and shape a life that you love.

In this class you will

  • Draw upon your resources of standing, sensing, listening and noticing to engage with the creative process of manifestation. 
  • Learn to access your inherent power to shape your life.
  • Clarify your relationship to the shape of the life you love.
  • Attune to the creative presence of the world around that can support you in your work.



Our work together will give you an active experience of exploring your own generative magic and putting it into practice. We will use both online and live webinar formats, as well as work with readings, discussion and recorded audio. You will have the opportunity to use the process to work with a real issue in your life.

  • Downloadable written and audio presentation of exercises
  • Six recorded audio lectures by David Spangler
  • Exercises with guided audio recordings
  • Opportunity for online discussion
  • Six (weekly) live and recorded webinar sessions  

Freya and Rue will be available in daily online interaction helping to integrate the material with your life context.

Reflections from past participants:

 THANK YOU for such a heartfelt, beautiful, humorous, illuminating course! – KC, 2017 Participant

It was a life changing time for me and I am still very actively working with projects, both original and new. What David says about the manifestation process being a way of on-going inner growth is very true for me. I listen to one of the audios almost every night for a re-new-ed focus. Each morning is an amazing new adventure. – CH, 2017 Participant
