  • The Birth of the Divine Child in Integral Yoga

    with Stephen Julich, PhD

    Date: 12/10/2017

    #

    “We are sons of God and must be even as he:
    His human portion, we must grow divine.” Savitri 15.10

    This is the final part of a series of talks prsenting the integral yoga of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother in comparison with other religious and spiritual systems. In past talks we have looked at the nature of the divine mother and the syzygy of the divine couple. In this talk we will look at the offspring of the great father and mother pairs throughout history. This child is often depicted as a savior god whose mission is to unify the worlds and save humankind. As in the earlier presentations, a wealth of images will be used to show comparative similarities between integral yoga and other world traditions and to inquire into whether the gnostic or supramental being, the signal, revolutionary realization of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, might be understood symbolically in this way.

    Stephen Lerner Julich is a graduate of the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in San Francisco, receiving a PhD in East-West Psychology in 2013. He is currently an adjunct professor at both CIIS and at the University of Philosophical Research (UPR) in Los Angeles, where he teaches courses on topics in Jungian Psychology.

  • “I AM”… an Autobiography of God

    with Anton Grosz, PhD

    Date: 01/07/2018

    #

    A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, the Universe was created by a force that bears a very close relationship to the consciousness we each feel inside. Prophets and seers have known this for millennia while quantum physicists are just beginning to discern it. Humanity as a whole, however, still sees that force as some great “God” figure ‘out there’ while focusing on the differences between people ‘down here’. Today’s talk is designed to make the connection between the consciousness that created the universe and the one we each feel when we say “I AM”. This is important both as the way to live to our full potential as well as being the ultimate evolutionary path to humanity’s survival and Peace on Earth.

    “I AM”… as Anton Grosz, is a husband, father, grandfather, author, hospice chaplain, cook, jazz pianist, Scrabble player, Giants’ fan, out-of-body traveler, and the holder of a PhD in the Evolution of Human Consciousness.
