Ascending Intentions

For Our Beloved University of Santa Monica Community,

Ron and I are here in the desert with the Life Mastery and Soul-Centered II (Second Year) students for the Retreat (formerly the Practicum), the culminating experience of their two years, which is well underway! Their integration and application of the Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology is inspiring. The students’ sharings reveal their already Open Hearts, Gratitude for the safe and Sacred space available to them, and their Courageous Authenticity. The Spirit of USM is very present.

Being with them brings forward Awareness of the Sacred privilege of providing an enlivening Soul-Centered educational process for nearly 40 years. We have fond memories of all the classes, and being here in Retreat with this class know we are sending you all Blessings of Love and support.

The first day of the Retreat, we worked with a new Soul-Centered Basic Skill: Facilitating Ascending Intentions that includes a special Blessing. We included it here as a gift to you.

Before you listen to this Blessing, we invite you to set your own Ascending Intention. Here’s something Mary said during the Retreat: “Ascending Intentions are a vehicle for strengthening your engagement as you aspire to take up full-time residence in the Authentic Self.”


We extend our Heartfelt Love and Gratitude to you. Stay tuned as there’s more to come!!
