The Loyalty to Your Soul® two-weekend workshop is designed to provide participants with a foundational experience of the Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology, as developed and taught by Drs. Ron and Mary Hulnick of the University of Santa Monica (USM), the Worldwide Center for the Study and Practice of Spiritual Psychology® to more than 6000 graduates over the past 40 years.
Spiritual Psychology, as learned and practiced through USM’s Soul-Centered educational approach, is heartfelt, relevant, practical, highly experiential, and transformational—in plain English, it is life-changing. The skills you will learn in this Workshop are tools not only for personal transformation and Spiritual Awakening but also for becoming more interpersonally effective.
If you are ready for a radical shift in perception—one that may challenge and profoundly alter your idea of who you are and what your purpose is on this planet—the Loyalty to Your Soul Workshop may provide the information, tools, and experience you’ve been seeking. In this gentle yet profoundly transformational Workshop, you will have the opportunity for learning how to relate with yourself and others from within the Spiritual Context. By that we mean the Awareness that you and everyone else are Divine Beings having a human experience. You’ll experience processes that have proved effective in assisting thousands of USM students in positively transforming their consciousness and their lives.
And for USM grads, it’s a great way to share USM with family and friends!
This gentle and empowering Workshop will provide you with opportunities to:
We are excited to be offering the Loyalty to Your Soul® (LTYS) two-weekend workshop Online on August 6 & 7 and September 10 & 11, 2022, for the first time since its sold-out run in 2019. This workshop is a robust dive into the foundational Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology. During the two weekends, participants from around the world will be experiencing the quintessential Soul-Centered Basic Skills and “power tools” that have supported thousands of students over the last 40 years to live more authentic and empowered lives.
The Loyalty to Your Soul Workshop is an opportunity to experience the power of a group of people who recognize that A Conscious World Begins With Conscious People—and answer the call to consciously Awaken, loving and supporting each other in Healing and the empowering work of remembering: I am a Divine, Loving Being having and using a human experience in service to Awakening.
The transformed world you seek around you can only emerge by first transforming the world within you. That world is your own consciousness.
The University of Santa Monica’s world-renowned Loyalty to Your Soul Workshop over two weekends in August & September 2022 is now available to anyone on the planet through the Blessings and advances in online classroom technology such that we can provide a truly Soul-Centered educational process online.
Current student experiences are best expressed by what they are sharing with us regarding their participation in the Online Classroom: “the Loving transcends the medium.”
All of us at USM are so enthusiastic! Who would have thought we could successfully translate this world-renowned Workshop to an online offering available to students around the world without your needing to leave the safety and sanctuary of your own home!!
We invite you to join us for an empowering and liberating experience!
For more than 40 years, we have provided students with opportunities for learning and applying life-changing Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology at the University of Santa Monica. You may be asking, “What is Spiritual Psychology? What are these Principles and Practices? Can they help alleviate the mental anguish and emotional suffering I experience at times? Can they assist me in transforming my consciousness and my life—knowing my life purpose and living into it?”
We say, “Yes. That is exactly what they’re designed for!”
If you delve into the meaning of the word psyche, you’ll find phrases such as “breath, principle of life, soul.” But if you explore the meaning of the word psychology, you’ll see “the science of mind and behavior.” Somehow, in the translation from essence to clinical practice, the most important aspect of psyche has been lost. We recognize our calling as restoring the spiritual dimension to the Heart of an authentic psychological inquiry. It is this reintegration that is the Heart of a truly Spiritual Psychology, which we define as the study and practice of Conscious Awakening. As my [Ron’s] first spiritual teacher was fond of saying, “The reason psychology was inspired onto the planet was because humanity forgot why it was here.”
And what does Awakening mean? It begins with the awareness that we simultaneously reside in two worlds. We are most aware of the one known as physical-world reality. It’s the world of our everyday existence, including relationships, work, finances, health, weather, politics, etc., with which we are familiar and which we think of as reality. It is the world we know through our five senses
And, as we are becoming more and more aware, beyond five-sense, observable, material reality, there is another reality. It is non-material, multi-dimensional, and spiritual in nature. For our purposes, we define Awakening as becoming more and more aware of this “other” reality, where we experience our Essential Spiritual Nature as Loving, Peaceful, Joyful, Free, Enthusiastic, Beautiful, Creative, Wise, and more! The Persian poet and mystic, Jalaluddin Rumi, was certainly speaking from an Awakened state when he wrote:
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want. Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doors where the two worlds touch. The door is round and open. Don’t go back to sleep.
Awakening into the Awareness of who, or more accurately what, you truly are and living your life from within that Awakened state is the essence of Spiritual Psychology. Today, as the evolutionary tide on the planet is rising, and larger numbers of people are Awakening to the Awareness that they are, in fact, Divine Beings having and using a human experience, the Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology provide context and tools for living into that Awareness. It is, in fact, our destiny to Awaken; for as we do so, we are actually Remembering that which is and always has been true.
This can be considered your personal introduction to what we speak of as the “Michelangelo effect,” which was so brilliantly expressed by the master sculptor himself when he said, “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” In just such a way, Awakening is not a journey of “becoming”; it is a process of “Remembering.”
Now here’s what to us is the most interesting and exciting part. This process of Awakening is not primarily a meditative process, though we encourage a spiritual practice we refer to as Spiritual Exercises. Awakening can be facilitated by engaging in an active process of releasing or dissolving the self-created barriers within your consciousness that are all that prevent you from knowing the Majesty of your Soul—from experientially knowing that you are the Presence of Love. As written in A Course in Miracles, “Your task is not to seek for love but to seek and find all the barriers you’ve built against it,” and to that we add, “… and to dissolve them.”
Entering the Spiritual Context
What does it mean to be a Spiritual Being having a human experience? Might it be that Teilhard perceived most of us as seeing ourselves in exactly the opposite way? Clearly, he was aware of the tendency to define ourselves as human beings who occasionally, if we’re fortunate, have a spiritual experience.
Teilhard’s quote is a powerful statement regarding the Spiritual Context—the Awareness that you are a Soul and that your life serves spiritual purpose—for it opens a portal to another way of perceiving yourself, your life experiences, and your purpose for being on this earth in human form.
For more than 40 years, USM has attracted students who were so deeply called to participate in the University’s Programs that they traveled great distances from around the world each month, including from places as far away as Dubai, UAE; Oslo, Norway; Kenya, Africa; Sydney, Australia; Quito, Ecuador; as well as many European countries.
Now, as a consequence of the global pandemic, Ron and Mary have redesigned USM’s dynamic, Spirit-filled curriculum such that it can be delivered online while maintaining its experiential nature.
This change in delivery system is in harmony with the University’s mission of Communicating the Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology Worldwide through the process of Soul-Centered Education.
Part of the question we asked was: How would this immersive Soul-Centered education, which takes place inside the Spiritual Context, translate into an online format?
What is amazing is students report the Heart-to-Heart, Soul-to-Soul connection and palpable transmission of Loving are as present and enlivening as ever.
Drs. Ron and Mary Hulnick are pioneers and leaders in the field of Spiritual Psychology™ as well as master teachers and facilitators of Awakening in Consciousness.
They are renowned educators, authors, and the Founding Faculty and Co-Directors of University of Santa Monica (USM), where they continue designing the University’s extraordinary curriculum and facilitating Soul-Centered Programs in Spiritual Psychology for more than 40 years that are on the frontier of Awakening in Consciousness. These Programs provide students opportunities to experience a rich, multi-dimensional, Soul-Centered educational process supporting deep Healing and Awakening into the fuller revelation, expression, and embodiment of the Authentic Self—the Beauty, Majesty, Wisdom, Creativity, and giftedness of each student. The golden opportunity is a transformed consciousness and a transformed life.
For 35 years, the University offered state-approved Master’s Degree Programs in Spiritual Psychology. In 2015, USM completed the Master’s offerings transitioning to Certificate of Completion offerings. In May 2020, with the advent of the global pandemic, the University underwent a second radical change to offering this life-changing experiential education Online to a global community. Drs. Hulnick continue developing and refining the curriculum and co-facilitating the Programs in the Online Classroom.
Both Ron and Mary are licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, and Mary is also a licensed Clinical Psychologist.
USM graduates share that being with Mary and Ron in the classroom, whether online or in person, is without exception one of the most transformative, Loving, and memorable experiences that they will cherish for a lifetime.
Ron and Mary are the authors of Loyalty to Your Soul: The Heart of Spiritual Psychology, published by Hay House and available in 12 countries and 8 languages and recently released as an audiobook read by the authors and available on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes. Their latest book, Remembering the Light Within: A Course in Soul-Centered Living, was published by Hay House in 2017 and is available at www.ronandmaryhulnick.com.
You matter. Your life matters. And your Presence and the state of your consciousness matter now more than ever at this time of great challenge on the planet.
We are living in the time of the Greater Awakening, and as we each accept responsibility for releasing misunderstandings and negativity residing within our own consciousness, we add to the rising evolutionary tide of Awakening.
Let us come together to learn, experientially, what it means to be Loyal to Your Soul—to lift and be lifted ever more fully into the Awareness of our Essential Nature and Purpose as Loving.
We recently received a powerful and inspiring letter from a grad:
“I am quietly hopeful about this present moment in history. I recently learned that ten percent is the tipping point when a population grows into a higher state of consciousness where new structures, public agreements, and power exchanges merge according to a higher state of values.
“USM has demonstrated for over 40 years, but especially in this time of unprecedented urgency, that it is possible for humanity to awaken to their Essential Nature and recognize and respect that same essence in all life forms.”
Surely her words sound the Call to Higher Consciousness for those ready to answer it. University of Santa Monica students and grads have been answering the call for more than 40 years.
For those of you called to participate in the Loyalty to Your Soul Workshop Online, it is a way to not only Elevate Your Game but also to Accelerate Your Awakening! You can serve yourself through participating—transforming your consciousness and transforming your life—and also serve humanity at this time for the greater Awakening on the planet.
Are you ready to accept this challenge and extraordinary opportunity?
Your future Self is already thanking you!
We look forward to sharing this special workshop with you. What a sacred privilege and opportunity it is to come together at this critical time on the planet with like-minded and like-hearted people with the intention to experience themselves as the Presence of Love—the Presence of Peace.

“Loyalty to Your Soul is the work of master teachers, two of the very best in our world. Ron and Mary Hulnick give us a step-by-step method and set of principles not only to overcome our egoic reactions, our upsets and fears, but to use as signals from our Souls as to what and how we can learn. Each problem serves as an awakener. We become Soul conscious as we apply the wisdom of the Soul to the problems of the ego. This is conscious self-evolution at its very best. A vital work for us all.”
— Barbara Marx Hubbard
Author, evolutionary educator, and founder of the
Foundation for Conscious Evolution
