We can hardly wait to share with you the magic and majesty of the inaugural Soul-Centered Living Program I Online, which took place in the University of Santa Monica Global virtual classroom last Saturday and Sunday with more than 175 students and 40 graduate assistants participating. When the “doors opened,” the Heart of USM expanded to welcome the students from across the United Stated and 15 countries around the world.
Even before meeting the class, we had been called to redesign the first weekend of the Program sensing the incoming students level of consciousness along with Awareness of the greater Awakening that is taking place on the planet at this time. Our experience of the class was both inspiring and humbling. The students’ open-hearted sharing, enthusiasm for the trio processes, receptivity to the Spirit of Love infusing the entire experience, and readiness to do the work brings tears to my eyes as I reflect on the weekend.
We are deeply Grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve, sharing the life-changing Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology. Through the years it has been apparent to us that each class stands on the shoulders of those who have gone before. Our Heartfelt Gratitude to all University of Santa Monica alumni. You are the Heart of University of Santa Monica and Ambassadors of this work!
Already 24 students have registered for the Make-up Class scheduled from 9am–6:30pm PDT on both Thursday and Friday, April 15 and 16. And two more countries are now represented in the class: Italy and the Netherlands. If you know someone who may be interested in this world-renowned educational process known to transform consciousness and transform lives, encourage them to take a look at the web page and to speak with one of USM’s lovely Admission Advisors.
And if you’re called to audit, please do the same. Know you’re always welcome here at University of Santa Monica!
♥ With Blessings of Loving, Light, and Heartfelt Gratitude,
Mary & Ron

“I am more calm than I would have been without USM. And I am learning to embrace everything and everyone on my path because now I know it is for me and my growth. Life is easier with USM principles. This is one of those experiences that you just have to go through to realize its value. A USM experience is a manual for living a more joyful, purposeful, and peaceful life. And it has the potential to transform you and your path in ways you have not even considered.
“USM is a supportive, non-judgmental and loving environment for you to unpack your baggage, sift through it, find the gold, and release the rest. And it is done through the leadership and loving lessons of Ron and Mary Hulnick who are two of the best models I can think of for teaching, listening, supporting, loving, and just being angels on this earth. I wish I had discovered them earlier in my life!”
We just completed the first weekend of the new Soul-Centered Living I Online Program, and what a GLORIOUS experience it was. Sacred and inspiring! The incoming students are so ready and willing! The sharing is already vulnerable, profound, and deeply rich with participants from around the world who are now able to join the USM classroom due to the online format. The transmission of the Loving is as palpable as ever. Spirit continues to be at work in the USM classroom in amazing and wondrous ways that touch our Hearts and inspire us to carry on!♥ Never has the need on the planet for this work been greater and never have the opportunities for deep Healing and revelation of the majesty of the Authentic Self been more available.
For those of you who are Grads, know that we have been diligently working the Co-Creative process of attuning and receiving Spirit’s inspirations regarding the Consciousness, Radiant Health & Healing Program: A Portal to Grace curriculum. It is beautiful and inspiring to see it clarifying, refining, and morphing into an even more exquisite vehicle for bringing forward the Beauty, Wisdom, and Radiant Health and Well-Being of those who will be participating. Radiant Health is informed by the Radiance of the Soul.
This morning I Awakened with such Aliveness, Enthusiasm, and Vitality. Kahlil Gibran’s words were resonating in my consciousness: “I awake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of Loving.” What a blessed life I am living, and I am so grateful for the gifts and blessings that we share when we come together in the USM classroom—now the virtual classroom.
Our experience with the Second Year class last year truly demonstrated, as Father Guido Sarducci said in his soliloquy in the Five-Minute University: “God is everywhere!!” The transmission of Loving, Healing Grace for which USM is well known grows ever stronger as the energy field continues to refine and elevate.
The class is swiftly filling with more than 90 registrations to date. A beautiful gathering of grads have stepped forward to partake, and every day there are more registrations. It’s going to be an empowering experience of Healing Grace and the ongoing revelation of the Authentic Self!
If you’re called to be part of this very special class, schedule a call with Eliza Swords or Lori Richards today here for support in fast-tracking your application.
CHH is the crown jewel of USM’s current offerings. Ron and I invite and encourage you to join us for a year to remember!
“To all like me who feared that the spirit of USM would get lost in the online format, I was fortunate enough to be a part of the first online class and the first online trio ever offered by USM.
“When I took Soul-Centered Living I in 2019, it was such a beautiful experience. I couldn’t understand how the ‘high’ that I would feel after being in the class weekend could be achieved in an online format. I thought: ‘We would miss soul-gazing,’ and ‘I won’t be able to hug people and enjoy their energies,’ etc.
“Well, after having participated in Life Mastery & Soul-Centered Living II Online in 2020, I’m so excited and relieved to report that I found the online version to be as strong, and in some ways stronger, than the in-person classroom.
“I find more intimacy with Ron and Mary as I always have front row seats—I always feel like they are talking just to me.
♥ I find more intimacy with my trio partners
♥ I don't get distracted by others in their trios
♥ I can create a workspace of my own where I can be more efficient and have my handouts ready to go
♥ I can cry without abandon
♥ The commute is amazing
♥ It's better for me financially as I don't have to buy air tickets, book hotel rooms, etc.
♥ I can have coffee in the classroom (no running to Whole Foods and trying to get back in time)
♥ I don’t need to wait in line for the bathroom
♥ I can rest my body and head after a moving trio without disrupting others
“I realized the venue has changed, but the people and the work are the same. It’s not the location but the people that make the class, and the USM tribe was there. The loving USM community with their open hearts ready to love and be loved were there. I feel so blessed and excited by the possibilities of having more and more USM teachings in my life.”
♥ We’re sounding the call to service for the 10-month Soul-Centered Living I Program for a key role. Forty assistants have already answered the call to serve the First Year Class. A very special function remains to be filled—that of Sound Assistants.
You may be thinking, I don’t know if I’m qualified for something like that.
The most important thing is that you love being of service and want to serve in this way. We’d love to welcome someone who has an affinity and love for this unique way of serving.
The job description is different in the online format from what was required.
It’s less complicated now. (No need to learn a sound board.)
Here are the requirements and opportunities:
Soul-Centered Living I and Consciousness, Radiant Health & Healing are beginning in this lively Spring Season and USM is in full flow!
As such we will pause for the month of April in holding the beloved Worldwide Community Gatherings, and we will resume in May.
The replays are all available to you to watch any time. Links to each of the 22 past Gatherings can be found by clicking the button:
We hold you in our hearts and look forward to gathering again in the Glorious University of Santa Monica Oasis. Please enjoy a special classroom segment from this past weekend’s Soul-Centered Living I class below.
QUALITIES & AFFIRMATIONS
♥ This audio clip begins with Sunday morning’s five-minute Peace Meditation, the focus of which is the beautiful qualities of the Authentic Self. It then moves into Large Group Sharing where several students share their qualities and affirmations that came forward from the prior day‘s exercise. They are qualities the students will be working with throughout the year as well as affirmations they wrote to support bringing those qualities to life.
These students have already reported that they’re using them everyday and finding such joy and expansion in their lives already because of them.
“Having been a seeker since the age of 12, I am aware that as long as I am in this human body, my journey never really ends. I am always growing, changing, evolving, learning, and expanding. Principle 11 is a permission slip for me in a way that says, ‘I don’t have to be perfect and I don’t have to get it all right now.’ This journey of awareness is a gradual unfolding—like the blossoming of a flower into a fruit—that happens with a beautiful, natural, divinely orchestrated timing which is really perfect for my unique and individual journey. I become consciously aware of what I need to be aware of at the precise time that is perfect for my learning journey. There is no ‘destination’ to arrive to. The journey itself is the destination.”
