Spiritual Development in an Educational Setting


The Intention of the Spiritual Studies Institute (SSI) is to encourage the Soul light wherever and however it may be appropriate. SSI seeks to serve people of goodwill who are mentally focused and are able to provide for themselves the necessities of  life.

SSI specializes in blending eastern and western approaches to health and spirituality. In particular, the programs at SSI focus on releasing the Soul life in order to promote good health and wellbeing.

SSI seeks to support interested individuals by creating a learning environment, which offers numerous opportunities to unlock the healing power of the Soul and to discover our true spiritual self.


Our emphasis is on the one Master in the heart, the Soul – the true spiritual being within each human being.

We do not teach theology. Students are encouraged to think for themselves and formulate their own opinions and ideas. Students are under no obligation to accept any of the material or ideas presented.

No loyalty to Spiritual Studies Institute is expected. No Master or guru runs Spiritual Studies Institute. Status, title, and position are of no importance.

Students may concurrently work in any of the esoteric, metaphysical, or orthodox groups and churches, or any community group or social organization. These activities can be looked upon as fields of service.

We strive to apply spiritual awareness to our daily lives and practice “mindfulness” and “harmlessness.” We are co-workers who focus on a common goal: self-discovery, group learning, and spiritual transformation.
