Ron Young – President
Ron’s work is the product of a lifetime of investigation into the Nature of Reality, the outcome of many hundreds of hours of guided spiritual development by his Teachers, and the Grace of Spirit. For Ron the work was, and remains, a full and continuous immersion. The work is also the product of forty-four plus years of continuous service with those seeking guidance, healing, and creative visioning. Ron’s work as a Spiritual Guide is to develop those who come to him by accompanying each participant “Home- to their Spirit Within.” This movement to Self is a patient unveiling, grounded in the power of compassion. The revealed gifts and the journey are unique to each individual. There are no carbon copies of the Teacher-Guide. It is the Teacher-Guide’s spiritual duty to reveal each participant to him/herself, and to assist each in the unfolding of the gifts endowed by Spirit for their great service to the Field of Life.
