Building Purpose & Intentionality

From his book The Soul Source — A Primer for Living as a Soul, David describes the evolution of consciousness and the importance of each of the three aspects that make up a spiritual practice, i.e. meditation, spiritual study, and service — and their significance. He will discuss how energy, force, and “spiritual tension” from the Soul work in a spiritual practice. This understanding is crucial for the consciously aware server when he or she is wanting to set purpose and intentionality in a practice for carrying out his part of the Plan, and the needs of the greater Group.

Presentation Handouts

David E. Hopper has been a student of esotericism, also called the Ageless Wisdom, since 1980. He has presented to groups expressing various forms of the Wisdom Teachings in Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, and Russia. In 2009, he completed esoteric studies with the Arcane School from the teachings of Alice Bailey and Helena Blavatsky.

Through the Lucis Trust, he has published articles on topics related to the Ageless Wisdom. In the last 6 years, he has published two books: The Soul Source — A Primer for Living as a Soul and Subjective Influences of the 10 Seed (Service) Groups. The Soul Source provides a clear insight into the nature of the Soul and setting up a Spiritual Practice. His book on the 10 Seed (Service) Groups provides an understanding on the primary groups, e.g., political, scientific, educational, religious, healing, financial services, etc. that make up our civilization and their spiritual potential. These three books are available through his new website, in addition to providing interesting esoterically related articles.

David currently serves as a faculty member for the Morya Federation, an online Esoteric school, and makes presentations at the Seven Ray Conference in Chandler, AZ.
