The name of our temple reveals the ultimate destination of everything we do. To live an enlightened life is critical to our mutual survival and the health of the planet. Rather than the pursuit of a solely personal state of enlightenment, this holy journey leads us to live in an awareness of our oneness with the world and to preserve and sustain the earth. If we are truly liberated, beyond the limits of the 3-dimensional mind, we will experience this unified, integral consciousness and be reborn.
In this realization, there is no possibility of harm to the natural world through our individual and group experience. We become co-creators with each other and live in harmony with nature. Through this living awareness, we may realize and manifest a Utopian field of consciousness that serves the well being of all sentient creatures and the earth.
How we live reflects our state of awareness and ability to align with our true values. Our state of awareness derives from the condition, and the conditioning, of mind, emotions and body. Conditioned consciousness is unconsciousness. Limited beliefs block out the light of pure awareness. Attachment and agendas drive volatile emotions. Lack of awareness creates unhealthy food and lifestyle habits, leading to disease and disengagement from the natural world. We feel spiritual impulses urging us to break free from these limits and seek reunion with the soul and its transcendental, enduring values of unity, love and awareness.
The path at Enlightened Life Temple is one that facilitates deep self-awareness and self-transformation. You must discover who you are not, in order to become who you are. A core element of the journey is finding your true identity, which is your own Inner Genius. This is a very empowering concept! You are a divine being, capable of wielding great power and attaining more wisdom to guide and command your life for your highest good.
In fact, you are already using your divine powers every day. Whatever is around you, whomever you interact with – all have been drawn by you, whether you are aware of this magnetic power or not. When you find out the truth about your real being, your awareness expands and the limited ideas of mind and conditioning begin to fall away.
The process of awakening in enlightened awareness is known as the Great Work in our western mystical lineages. Great means, tremendous, colossal, immense and prolonged. This radical transformation takes time and requires the use of specialized tools and practices. Practicing these methods, and devotion to deeper self-awareness is the Work.
The Enlightened Life path begins with an amazing program of training where you will learn these powerful techniques for self-awakening, self-healing and radical life change. There is nothing like the 12 Essentials of Life Mastery. It is a complete system for self-realization that instructs you in the techniques and practices of Integral Consciousness.
Integral Consciousness is the source awareness that lies beyond the 3-dimensional mind. It opens you to greater understanding, compassion and personal power. Using these methods, you will enjoy a compelling process of deep self-exploration. You will experience yourself and your life in new and empowering ways. You will feel the serene presence that is your own true Genius. With a deeper sense of fulfillment, and clear alignment to your values and ideals, you will not be the same person you were before the journey began. You will be delighted and amazed at the transformation.
As you move through this compelling program, we welcome you to reach out for Integral Consciousness mentoring as needed. As a temple community, we support you to be an independent, self-directed and successful practitioner. A mentor is a companion who has completed the training, who can help guide the journey into your most authentic self.

You may also be interested in training to become an Integral Consciousness Coach, qualified to open your own practice and coach others in the path of self-actualization.
