Spiritual Initiation: The Path of Becoming the Soul

The soul seeks to express through its imperfect instrument, the personality. The personality consists of the collective energies of the physical, emotional, and mental bodies. In the journey of awakening and consciousness, these elements of personality progress through discrete and somewhat predictable stages as they increasingly come under the soul’s influence. As this process develops, and we move along the Path of Initiation, we become an increasingly effective instrument of the soul’s expression, becoming more ‘light’ filled and reflective of the soul’s true nature. This program explores the soul-person infusion process stages, more commonly referred to as initiation.
