   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

Subtle Energies II: Growing your Relationships with a Living Universe

April 5 – May 16th

Grow your Relationships with a Living Universe

With Freya Secrest and Rue Hass



“We are as much subtle beings as we are physical ones. We inhabit both physical and non-physical ecologies. Learning to be conscious of both and able to creatively engage with both opens the door to restoring wholeness to our world” – David Spangler


Subtle Energies II is a practicum to help you deepen your unique skills of perception and express more of your connection with the wholeness of life.  Rue and Freya’s mentoring support will help you strengthen your habits of purposeful partnership and open possibilities for new collaborations to unfold. 

NOTESubtle Energies Classes build upon each other and must be taken in order. Subtle Energies I is a pre-requisite for participation in Subtle Energies II and both are pre-requisites for Subtle Energy III.

  • Apply your personal gifts of standing and connecting with the world to develop a partnering relationship with something you care about.
  • Deepen your unique relationships with a vibrant world
  • Gain new understanding and confidence in interpreting your subtle perceptions

Interested? Listen to our recorded Free Webinar on Subtle Energy 

Share in a reflection exercise and explore your subtle capacities. Sign up to access the free webinar recording.




Participants will establish a project of interest to explore during the class. Appropriate exercises from the book, Working with Subtle Energies will be recommended to support, integrate and deepen personal capacities and skills. Reports and written discussion will take place in the online class site. Six live (and recorded) group sessions will also enable us to come together for real time sharing. Discovery highlights three main areas:

  1. Awareness and noticing – Deepen your understanding of the way the world “speaks” to you and how you are oriented to “hear” it
  2. Boundaries – Engage with subtle fields in purposeful, grounded and effective ways
  3. Interpretation – Develop your ability to hold and integrate your experiences.



SUBTLE ENERGIES II: Grow Your Relationships with a Living Universe will be held on our online education site, powered by Ruzuku where participants have access to the online discussion and materials 24/7 through their ongoing Learning Library. Course includes:

  • Weekly practice with exercises with a supportive group of peers
  • PDF copy of Working with Subtle Energies by David Spangler
  • Downloadable written and audio presentation of exercises
  • Opportunity for facilitated online discussion, and dialogue1
  • Six live and recorded webinar sessions with Rue and Freya.  (Saturday, April 7th, April 14th, April 21st, May 5th, and May 12th at 9am PT)
