   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

Sphere of Blessing – A Lorian Discovery Class


One-week Online Class

June 18 – 24, 2017





The focus of this training is to strengthen our work with Incarnational Spirituality as a service. This is an opportunity for you to deepen your skills in holding healing, blessing and wholeness for the world.  This class will help you establish a step by step practice for building a field of Blessing and deepen your capacity to offer healing and wholeness as a standing activist in the world. 

The six day course includes:

  • 6 downloadable recordings of David Spangler leading you through the steps for shaping a safe and energy-filled subtle sphere of blessing for any blessing or standing activism work.
  • PDFs of these meditation steps formatted for printing
  • Downloadable recording of a guided blessing for the Spirit of America
  • 1 week of Lorian faculty support with your process in our 24/7 online campus.
  • 1 Teleclass to engage our subtle activism practice together as a group on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at 7am Pacific Time. Teleclass will be recorded and emailed to all who have signed for the training.

Note: While we will be working with the Soul of America and offering blessing to the United States, this is not a political forum. Our discussion will be centered around our experiences with our practice and work together as subtle activists.


Class will be held on our online education platform Lorian Education powered by Ruzuku. All content and discussion text is available 24/7 for the duration of the course.  A notice for each day’s lesson is emailed to participants and you can keep track of any discussion posts via email as well. Faculty are online daily to respond to discussion.  

June 24th webinar (7 am PT) is accessed through the site and a link to the recording will be emailed to all participants.  Further details will be sent with registration.
