A 10-Month Certificate Program in Advanced Spiritual Psychology Online

Program Overview

Life Mastery & Soul-Centered Living II—USM’s 10-month Certificate Program in Advanced Spiritual Psychology—has been Co-Created from the foundation of over 35 years of experience in offering progressive graduate Programs in Spiritual Psychology.

This dynamic Program is on the frontier of human consciousness. The content, methodology, and educational process of this Program provide students opportunities to recalibrate their consciousness and their lives at a higher level. Classes emphasize relevant, immediately usable information, skills, and experiences designed to support students into an experience of deeper meaning, greater effectiveness, and enhanced fulfillment in all areas of their lives. Accomplishing this requires a balanced approach with emphasis on personal accountability and experiential learning

What is the Relationship Between Spiritual Psychology, Life Mastery, and Soul-Centered Living?

This Program is for those who understand that the tea master, aikido master, or sword master devotes a lifetime to developing Mastery with the Awareness and understanding that if you master yourself, you can master anything.

In other words, Mastery proceeds from the inside out
and is a lifelong process.

This is not a Program for dilettantes or dabblers. It is for those who are interested in a depth-full educational process designed to evoke commitment and involvement with the consciousness of Mastery. It involves wholehearted engagement in a process that goes on over time and is designed to support participants in Soul-Centered Living as a way of Being and a way of life. It’s for students who have the readiness to Awaken from Spiritual amnesia and live their lives in greater harmony with their Essential Spiritual Nature characterized by Clarity, Wisdom, Peace, Loving, Joy, Aliveness, and Freedom.

The courses within the Life Mastery & Soul-Centered Living II Program each stand on their own in the unique value they contribute to the curriculum. In addition, they are in resonance with each other and synergistic in the ways they support, engage, and challenge students in developing Mastery.

Life Mastery & Soul-Centered Living II
Program Courses

The Healing of Memories: Cleansing the Lens of Perception

This course includes experiential exploration of human growth and development within the Spiritual Context of Healing and Awakening in consciousness. Students have opportunities for reviewing their life experiences, dis-identifying with their story in service to releasing what no longer serves them, and healing old hurts, misinterpretations of reality, and the deeper underlying patterns associated with them. Emphasis is placed on exploring their own personal history in service to the Healing of Memories—including intergenerational patterns—and learning to use all experience to their advancement in service to their Healing, Awakening, and Mastery. Emphasis is also placed on cultivating attitudes and habits of nurturing self-care physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Relationship as Spiritual Opportunity

This course focuses upon the family and intimate relationships as potentially some of the greatest opportunities on the planet for healing, learning, and growth. It involves integrating and applying the Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology to the process of transforming one significant relationship. Patterns and dynamics of individuals, couples, and family relationships are identified and considered within a Spiritual Context. Methods designed to cultivate more fulfilling couples’ and families’ relationships are explored and practiced. Students learn experientially how to utilize the everyday life experiences of their relationships as rungs on the ladder of Spiritual Awakening through applying the empowering Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology.

Life Mastery and Soul-Centered Co-Creation

In service to enhancing Life Mastery, demonstrating leadership in your own life, and experiencing the transformational potential and fulfillment inherent in the process of Soul-Centered Co-Creation, each student participates in identifying, envisioning, designing, implementing, and successfully completing a substantive Sacred Yes Project that has Heart and Meaning for them. Emphasis is placed on demonstrating Mastery in applying the tools of Co-Creation while effectively utilizing the Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology for empowering and supporting oneself in producing successful results in physical-world reality as well as for healing, growth, and transformation.

Life Mastery & Soul-Centered Co-Creation Project Teams

This course is taken in conjunction with Life Mastery & Soul-Centered Co-Creation and is designed to provide ongoing support for each student in completing a meaningful Sacred Yes Project utilizing the process of Soul-Centered Co-Creation as a vehicle for demonstrating Mastery. Class format consists of small group Project Team meetings held twice a month for a minimum of 2.5 hours. This course provides opportunities for demonstrating effective integration of the Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology in communicating with Team members; supporting Team members in demonstrating clear intention, Creativity, resourcefulness, and greater Mastery; and providing encouragement and effective feedback to Team members as they complete a Sacred Yes Project that is both Heartfelt and substantive. Additionally, Project Teams are a laboratory within which each student has opportunities for more fully integrating and effectively utilizing the Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology in service to recalibrating their consciousness and life at higher levels.

Cultivating the Consciousness of the Spiritual Scientist

The Spiritual Scientist is a faculty of Higher Consciousness characterized by Neutral Observation. It allows students to enter a judgment-free zone in which they are free to choose and conduct experiments relative to their own consciousness and aspects of their everyday lives. A major benefit of cultivating the Consciousness of the Spiritual Scientist is that it provides a context within which students can experience the Freedom that comes from embracing a Learning Orientation to Life.

Students are provided with a practical tool, a Patterning Journal, which provides opportunities to function as a Spiritual Scientist by practicing Neutral Observation in each student’s own consciousness. Through the practice of Neutral Observation, it is possible to gain the leverage necessary to alter/dissolve certain patterns, thereby recalibrating one’s consciousness at a higher level. This course provides a methodology for transforming restriction, limitation, and unclarity in consciousness by moving from the duality of ego-referenced thinking to the altitude of Neutral Observation and the clarity and Inner Knowing of the Spiritual Scientist.

Four-Day Advanced Spiritual Psychology Online Retreat

The Advanced Spiritual Psychology Retreat is a four-day experiential laboratory designed as the culminating experience of Life Mastery & Soul-Centered Living II Program. Each day, students have the opportunity to synthesize, integrate, and demonstrate the Soul-Centered Basic Skills and Facilitation Approaches learned in the Program. Emphasis is upon practical application of the Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology learned and practiced throughout the Program.

Life Mastery & Soul-Centered Living II

Climbing the Mountain of Light!

Now that you’ve gained some familiarity with the essential elements of the Life Mastery & Soul-Centered Living II Program, we’d love to share some additional information with you.

This Program is about demonstrating Mastery. This provides opportunities to step up to a higher level of commitment and engagement in your Awakening and in the matters of your everday life than perhaps you have ever previously known. There is only one way we know of providing you with opportunities for reaching these higher levels. We must encourage you in “reaching higher,” and to do this means “raising the bar.” It would do you no good were we to bring the bar down to where you are already functioning. Of course, in true USM style, the bar is raised gradually over nine months, thus giving you time to assimilate one level before ascending to the next.

The Life Mastery & Soul-Centered Living II Program is a life-transforming process. You will have tremendous support throughout the Program from the USM faculty, staff, your classmates, your Inner Counselor, and from Spirit. Remember, the willingness to do gives the ability to do. We do know two things for sure—you can do this and the benefits are life-long and beyond!

If you are inspired to invest ten months of your life in recalibrating your consciousness and your life at new levels and in developing the consciousness of Mastery as a Way of Being and Way of Life, the levels of support and opportunities to accelerate your Awakening are exceptional.

“The myriad of current conditions present globally are providing tremendous opportunities for Healing individually, for humanity and for the planet. How does such Healing occur? It occurs through the evolution of consciousness. By each one of us doing our own Healing work, the net result will be the transmutation of prejudice, inhumanity, oppression, and the illusions of unworthiness and separation—the “dis-ease” that afflicts us all.

Participating in Consciousness, Radiant Health, and Healing: A Portal to Grace presents unparalleled opportunities for Healing and Awakening into Higher consciousness. Join us for a year to remember.”

—Drs. Ron & Mary Hulnick

Life Mastery & Soul-Centered Living II is a map to life.
The gifts of being human and the opportunity to live a spiritual life are revealed in the second-year program. The ideas and concepts presented gave me the opportunity to implement them in very real ways.
Life Mastery & Soul-Centered Living II has me stretching to expand my awarenesses and deepening my trust while healing the hurts with loving.
My personal life, family life, and community involvement have thrived during this time. The gifts have been extraordinary. This is the pivotal moment in which I am looking forward and feeling the excitement to live the rest of my life with the vibrancy of Soul-Centered Living.”

— Oriana Rebecca Bier-Moebius LM&SCL II Online, 2020

I highly prefer the online classroom as my experiences, learnings, and upliftments were grounded within my own home. My teenage son openly expressed, ‘I love it when Mom is having class because I can feel myself becoming more aware of my own self and choices.’”

—Gina Deeming, LM&SCL II Online, 2020

There really are no words that are sufficient to describe the incredible value of the program. To have had this program and these tools through this last year of turmoil has been invaluable. This program has been absolutely life-changing and such a gift. It's assisted me to process so much trauma, and to let go of issues that I had wrestled with for half my life.
It also allowed me to let go of not wanting to be seen, and as a result, I ended up co-hosting a documentary that will be seen in 10 million households around the world. I have had the blessing of working with amazing and well‑known teachers and Ron & Mary are some of the best I have ever seen. They not only ‘walk the walk’ but are infinitely patient and incredible role models. I so highly recommend the program—it will elevate and change your life in the best ways possible.”

—Tillie Jane Walton, LM&SCL II Online, 2020

This program guided me in first becoming clear on my vision for opening a retreat center, then proceeded to support me in making the dream a reality in one year.

— Abby Stern, LM&SCL II Online, 2020

My USM experience was the treat of a lifetime… Imagine learning to love myself and trust my intuition, and even to be able to let go and be carried by spirit! I didn't learn these skills anywhere else and am deeply grateful for the personal benefit as well as the skills I take into my field of work that will benefit thousands. Thank you!

—Dan Bienenfeld, LM&SCL II Online, 2020
