In 1998, Michael attended an experimental leadership gathering that was using a process of sacred dialogue to explore whether new possibilities exists on the frontiers of human consciousness and what groups can do to help bring a new world into being - the answer to which was confirmed when he was drawn beyond the senses into a radiant, divine light that revealed the origin of creation and catalyzed new vision and potential for those who took part.*.
In 2020, we are inviting people who feel inspired by these vital questions to develop small groups of colleagues who will participate in one or more weekend events throughout the year. The design will be flexible to accomodate each group's interest and availability and may not be clear until after the initial weekend, including whether the groups are virtual or not..
Private sessions create space to explore an instinctual, path of awakening that is rooted in a fierce, revolutionary conversation with one's own Heart. At times, we may explore the dynamics of a life situation, or we may ask for a dream to clarify the root of a dilemma and any shift in alignment that we need to make. Cost: $180/hour; $150/hour for a package of ten.
From the outset, MIchael's gatherings were designed as a rich, collaborative art form that constantly takes us onto new spiritual and creative edges where the divine Self is embodied in a unique, individual way - by combining silence, inquiry and dreamwork with painting, writing, music and other gifts that participants bring. * See Calendar for details.
In 1996, Michael's interest in pioneering leadership work led to a revolution in his heart and a startling new perception of reality in which the usual world of the senses was penetrated by a cosmic dimension of love.
Two years later, Michael was exploring his creative niche at a leadership gathering when a sacred force drew him beyond the senses into a vast, unmanifest void where a radiant, divine light revealed itself to be the origin of creation,.
While an inconceivable pleasure drenched his brain, Michael spoke a few words into the group while the participants drew on their own devotion to tune into what was vital and new - so that is the natural expression of his work.
Michael got a feel for the spiritual arena by holding small, informal talks, but when the time came to work with people in a more intensive way, he was drawn to Nature to experiment with an active, collaborative format.
In any setting, the gatherings are designed to create space for people from diverse backgrounds who are sincere about the way of love, have a good sense of humor and collaborate well with friends and strangers alike.
Participants are invited to drop out of the mind stream into a reverential silence, breathe the sacred essence of the heart into the field and listen for one thing that they need to hear - for themselves or a world in crisis.
Early on, Michael started to work with dreams to draw on an innate source of wisdom about entrenched habits of mind that tend to govern how we live and inhibit deeper potentials and gifts that are waiting to be born.
Michael's work has nothing to do with religion per se, which tends to be more concerned with enforcing the rules of social morality than with invoking visionary contemplative states that radical mystics and sages speak about.
From the perspective of quantum science, what our culture calls a miracle is just the invisible impact of a high vibrational or sacred energy field on the world of form, including the mind and heart of other human beings.
Michael used a donation model until a saint arrived in a dream to say that charging money was not a problem as insiders vehemently insisted, so he tends to the integrity of his own work and invites others to do the same.
Last year, a series of dreams prompted Michael to return to New Mexico to purchase a property and to build something from scratch that has not existed before, but despite a close call, we are still looking for the right place.
Michael shares his vision as a speaker around the country and as a catalyst/advisor with inspired groups that are exploring whether new possibilities exist on the frontiers of their own work, so please contact us if he can be useful.
