USM Volunteers

As the evolutionary impulse on the planet continues to strengthen, USM continues answering the call through offering life-changing Programs that transform consciousness and transform lives. As you know, it is the nature of the Soul to Love and to Learn. As we grow in consciousness, we realize that successes on the Goal Line (while enjoyable) pale in comparison to the majesty and fulfillment experienced through the ongoing revelation of the Joy, Aliveness, and Beauty of the Authentic Self on the Soul Line.

As we deepen in our awareness, we realize (see with “real eyes”) that the experience of who we truly are—Divine, Loving Beings having a human experience—IS our Soul’s purpose. We come to a place where we value taking time to engage with others of a similar awareness in activities of an uplifting nature as a prime way of strengthening our connection to higher spiritual frequencies. For this reason, it can be extremely helpful to participate in a community that is focused on spiritual growth and upliftment. USM’s beloved volunteers are just such a community.

Every month, some 300 students will come to USM Online to further develop their awareness of Spirit through the transformational and life-affirming Programs here. This “coming together” of like-hearted Souls provides an unparalleled opportunity for graduate volunteers to support this work through Service. Some people think that Service primarily benefits those being served. What is less clearly understood is that Service most benefits those who are being of Service by giving unconditionally of themselves—for it is in Service that the Soul is nourished and grows. The higher we ascend in consciousness, the more our Souls wish to Serve.

We are deeply moved as we reflect upon all the blessings and all of you who have chosen to support USM, making the dream of a University offering Soul-Centered educational experiences a reality! We invite you to join us as one of the vital pillars of our community, providing the foundation of loving support so that USM students can continue receiving the blessings and benefits of a USM education. You’ll continue receiving the blessings and benefits as well.

By serving, you truly are making a difference—most important, to your Self.

“Being an Assistant online was far more rewarding than I had imagined it could be! It was such a Gift, Blessing, and Surprise to discover the depth of connection with the other Assistants, the level of Spiritual Focus, and the deep communion and recognition with All of the Students. It was so intensely Spirit-driven, intensely focused Work and Service, and soooo incredibly Fun!!! What an honor and a privilege it was to serve so wholeheartedly. The Assisting space was a microcosm of the safe Space created in the online Classroom to Shine in Authentic Self-Expression and Service!!! Assisting is such a Soulful and Heart‑filling opportunity!”

“I’ve loved assisting with the online format. There’s something truly magical about being able to support the class from the comfort of my home! It’s been an amazing way to learn and experience the transcendence of USM’s teachings—it doesn’t matter where we are, whether online or in person, the healing and learning are ever present. It’s also been a great opportunity to flex into new leadership skills and opportunities as we say ‘yes’ to what’s here and now.”
