Foundations Course – May-June 2024

Foundations Course

Overview

Where are you right now?

  • Have you arrived at a crossroads or a fork in the road? – and you’re looking for insight, guidance or a sign to help you take your life to the next level
  • Looking to step into your power and finally own your impact?
  • Maybe you want to deepen your practice but don’t want the added pressure of taking tests or quizzes. 
  • Or perhaps you simply want to gently journey along your spiritual path and connect more deeply to source.

 If any of these sound like you, then keep reading… This spiritual journey can feel very isolated and lonely – and without a community, a guide, and a process – our suffering and struggles can stand in the way of our happiness & our healing. And, that’s why I’ve developed the Foundations Course. For thousands of years, the ancient spiritual teachings have revealed the answers to life’s deepest questions:

  • Who am I ?
  • Why am I here & What is my purpose?
  • How do I know which is the right decision?
  • How do I awaken my inner healer?
  • What’s the secret to truly connecting to the stillness & silence that rests within?
  • And, how do I manifest my dreams and desires? 

 Over 7 weeks, you and I – and a supportive group of spiritual warriors from around the world – will journey together exploring the ancient teachings, cultivating our meditation practice, discovering our best self, and building a strong foundation for you to navigate this magnificent, yet sometimes harsh, world around us.

Learn How Release the Ties that Bind You

Our own self-judgments are simply assumptions. We’ll learn they are not necessarily true, and how to let them go to make room for growth and infinite possibilities.

Allow that Inner Sense of Security to Blossom

Through years of conditioning, we often fail to see the nuances of the ways we express ourselves. Learn to live with an attitude of curiosity and innocence that allows us to release constrictions.

Lean into the Direction of Your Dreams

Through davidji’s guidance, you’ll began a daily practice of self-compassion, self-forgiveness and gratitude, and a journey back to wholeness.

Program

In four LIVE Zoom sessions, beginning on May 19 at 9am Pacific time, we’ll dive deep into spiritual solutions for navigating life’s uncertainties using the ancient texts, awakening the teachings within, and developing our spiritual framework.

We will discover how to spark, cultivate, and evolve your personal connection to the Universe. I’ll share the most transformational & spiritual guidance from The Bhagavad Gita & the Vedic scriptures; we will meditate on the devotional poetry of Rumi & Hafiz; we’ll learn the foundations of Buddhism & the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali; we’ll connect to the profound teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. direct from his autobiography; and we’ll experience the practical application in the 5 realms of our life. And in the process, we’ll awaken the part of you that is eternal… the part of you & everyone you’ve ever loved that will never die.

During the process… and long after, you will use what you learn on a daily basis to raise your vibration and the vibrations of those around you.

The Foundational Texts

It is not a requirement for you to read any of these texts. davidji will introduce you to foundational, ancient and contemporary writings, overview their origins and authors, discuss timeless key concepts, and apply the teachings to our lives & the current challenges you face in the real world today. If one or more of the texts resonate with you, you are welcome to dive into them more deeply, discuss with others in the group in the private Facebook page, and ask questions during the webinars.
