School of Consciousness Studies

CON 501 Principles of Metaphysics

Instructor: Deborah Lindsey

In this course, students will learn the 7 Great Principles as put forth by Hermes Trismegistus, who is also known as Thoth and the “scribe of the gods”, as put forth in the 1912 publication of “The Kybalion.” These principles form the basis of all metaphysical philosophy and can be found in all major religions throughout the world. These principles, when applied, offer the serious student the ability to transmute their life through the process of alchemy (turning lead into gold). This course will introduce these principles and open the student to a world of conscious creation.

Jim Bowman is an instructor for the International Metaphysical University, an online university that offers degrees in metaphysicsCON 502 Comparative Religion

Instructor: James. L. Bowman Jr., Ph.D.

This is a twelve (12) week course taught by Dr. James Bowman based on thirty years research into comparative religions. The study starts with spirituality in the Twenty-First Century and the foundation that religion today is mixed with societal, spiritual and historical contexts. Established religions or faiths have much in common. Examining the commonality of modern religions leads us to the differences. Although this course is an overview of world religions, what we will look at is the origin of the three major religions and how they vary. This class is a cornerstone for later spiritual study.

Bruce Vinikas teaches Drunvalo Melchezidek's Flower of LifeCON 503 Flower of Life, Sacred Geometry, and the MerKaba

Instructor: Bruce Vinikas, DOM

The Flower of Life, one of the oldest symbols on earth but only recently discovered, is the pattern of LIFE itself and illustrates the unified connection of spirit and matter. Within the symbol can be found the Golden Mean Ratio and the Five Platonic Solids which together form the foundational building blocks of Nature in our physical universe. Nested within the Flower of Life is the MerKaBa which is your first container, the primary energy field that creates your entire reality. The MerKaBa creates all the denser system-fields you may be familiar with—the chakras, your aura, acupuncture meridians, physical organs, mind, body, emotions. The Merkaba is the leading edge of research into how consciousness affects matter (that means how your intention influences your circumstances). Learning how to consciously attune and activate it can bring major positive life changes, enhance manifestation and siddhi development (super normal ability).

Carl Johan Calleman teaches about the Mayan Calendar at the International Metaphysical University.CON 511 The Mayan Calendar and the Transformation of Consciousness

Instructor: Carl Johan Calleman, Ph.D.

Learn about the Mayan Calendar directly from renowned author and Mayan Calendar expert Carl Johan Calleman in this 12-week interactive online course! Take advantage of this uncommon opportunity to interact directly with Dr. Calleman and other students of the Mayan Calendar online! In this course students can an opportunity to interact with Dr. Calleman himself! In this course, students will learn the meaning of the Mayan calendar and its connection to the evolution of consciousness. Learn the central structure of the Mayan calendar of nine Underworlds and thirteen Heavens and how they are related to the sacred calendar of 260 days, which remains the core of the system as it is presently used by the living Maya. Carl especially emphasizes how the various calendrical energies bring about shifts in consciousness and how these are related to the historical evolution of mankind leading up to October 28, 2011. In addition the use of the calendar as an astrological tool will be taught. The Mayan calendar is different from all other calendars in fundamental ways. First, it is not based on astronomical cycles and secondly it does not reflect continuous time. Rather it is a description of how sequences of cosmic energies are driving evolution in different processes from seed to mature fruit. Since these stepwise processes are empirically verifiable it becomes clear to the student of this calendar that we are taking part in a cosmic time plan which has a direction. Hence, the Mayan calendar traces the very basis of prophecy and clarifies where we will be going in the time ahead. It is relevant to note that Dr. Calleman puts forth the theory that the Mayan Calendar ended on October 28, 2011.

Geoff Byrd is an instructor at the International Metaphysical University, an online college that offers degrees in metaphysicsCON 514 Meditation Techniques

Instructor: Geoff Byrd

Learn to meditate through the use of a variety of symbols & techniques taken from various religions and ancient mystical practices, which have been adapted for use in contemporary lifestyles. Experienced meditators develop improved physical, mental & emotional states of being, which promote deeper and broader awareness of one’s connections to a higher, awakened consciousness.

The ultimate and absolute aim of meditation is direct apperception of Truth characterized by a silent mind, which is known by many names but may perhaps best be described as Self/No-Self, and is a very rare attainment. In the meantime there is value in learning and practicing some of the knowledge and methods that humankind has come to know and use for the benefit of themselves and others from antiquity and into the present.

Carl Johan Calleman teaches about the Mayan Calendar and 2012 at the International Metaphysical UniversityCON 601 The Purposeful Universe

Instructor: Carl Johan Calleman, Ph.D.

For a fairly long time modern science has presented a view of the universe as fundamentally fragmented, where its different aspects has been studied by different disciplines such as physics, chemistry and biology. This fragmentation differs from the essentially holistic view that the ancient peoples of our planet adhered to which was unified by elements that some would today call mythological or religious. We are however now living in a time where it is again possible to bring the different elements of our understanding in a new and unified view where everything is connected and evolves in purposeful way. This course discusses the wide ranging ramification of the rediscovery of science in 2003 of the Cosmic Tree of Life as a unifying origin of all evolution and helps us understand our purpose in this larger context.

Carla Rueckert teaches The Law of One for the International Metaphysical UniversityCON 604 Basic Principles of the Law of One

Instructor: Carla L. Rueckert, M.A.

The L/L Research group received the Law of One material in the early 1980s, and it has become a classic in the field of consciousness research. However, it is not easy to read. In 2010 I wrote an entry-level book, Living the Law of One 101: The Choice to give seekers an easier run at the material. This will be the text for this class. In “Basic Principles of the Law of One”, students will learn about unity, free will, love, and light as well as exploring the ways of polarity and the functions and use of the energy body. A student entering this course can expect to learn how to graduate from third density, the Density of Choice, and go on to fourth density, the Density of Love. I have found the principles of this philosophy to be very helpful in my own life, and I look forward to sharing this information and inspiration with you.

Leslie Zehr is an instructor in the Holistic Healing program at the International Metaphysical University, an online university offering degrees in metaphysics.CON 612 The Al-Chemia Remedies: Egyptian Flower and Sacred Sites Remedies

Instructor: Leslie Zehr, founder

The Al-chemia Remedies were made in Egypt a very ancient place, vibrating with ancient wisdom through the voice of our teachers, the flowers. They speak and translate into form the vibrations and wisdom present around us. Flowers are the symbol of Divine unfolding into manifestation. A seed is planted and grows to its highest most beautiful potential, and then blossoms into a flower, absolute beauty, divinity in physical form. By capturing their energy in the matrix of water we can use it for our own conscious evolution, to activate our ‘sleeping’ DNA and break old and ancient patterns, to become whole, to unfold and blossom into our highest potential fully alive on every level of existence.

In this course you will begin with the basics, the understanding of energy, vibration, water and how remedies work. We will then build on this base and study the flowers, and the remedies themselves. We will learn how to choose a suitable remedy, make a preparation, methods of application and finally bring to consciousness the action of the remedy through evaluation. Students will first work with the remedies on themselves, to have personal experience of their action and then be asked to do case studies using volunteers in order to see the action of the remedies in different situations. By the end of this course students will be able to assist clients in their journey of spiritual evolution using the Al-chemia Remedies.

HH 505 Energy Kinesiology and Muscle Testing

John Maguire teaches Muscle Testing for the International Metaphysical University.

Instructor: John Maguire

In this comprehensive course you will learn the art and science of manual muscle testing to determine where energetic blockages which can cause stress and pain are located in the body.

CEs now available for Massage Therapists

The Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as EFT or energy tapping, is an amazing process for healing the emotions and the subsequent pain or illness that manifests as a result of blocked or imbalanced emotions. EFT is based on the concept that “the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system,” and this disruption in the energy system causes symptoms in the body. Once this is removed, the body can easily heal. This technique is used for “just about everything” including addictions, asthma, depression, dyslexia, childhood trauma like teasing or divorce, grief, headaches, hoarding, love pain, performance anxiety or enhancement, nail biting, phobias, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), physical pain, trauma, stuttering, war trauma, weight loss, and more.

Paul Eno teaches paranormal studies at the International Metaphysical University, where they offer an online degree in MetaphysicsPAR 503 Science, Religion, and the Paranormal

Instructor: Paul Eno

The paranormal coexists very comfortably with religious belief, and this draws strength from the fact that modern religious institutions no longer adequately answer the simple questions of “Are they okay? Will I be okay?” any student of folklore will tell you that all our religions had their origins in (for all intents and purposes) the paranormal. In this course, author Paul Eno examines the fundamental role that religion plays in not only the history of the paranormal, but also what place religion plays in the modern understanding of the hidden and the unexplained.

PAR 505 Introduction to Exoconsciousness

Instructor: Rebecca Hardcastle Wright, PhD

Historical research indicates that the extraterrestrial presence is ancient. We have in the past and are now being visited.  Hence, human art and culture express an innate longing for the stars, oneness with the blanket of sky and a home in the vast universe.  We yearn for extraterrestrial intimacy where the puzzling and strange become personal and prosaic.

An Exoconsciousness foments within us. And by necessity, this extraterrestrial relationship pulls us beyond Newtonian science, the nuts and bolts of objective science, and into the frontier of Quantum Science, expanding the boundary of objective science into subjective experience where consciousness possibilities dawn.

Introduction to Exoconsciousness offers the opportunity to enter into a new relationship with ourselves as human—spawn from and one with the stars. Extraterrestrial. Exoconsciousness is necessary for developing a new definition of humans as extraterrestrial.

To this end, our course will center on theoretical research, practical tools, and dialogue. Get ready. Our Exoconscious discussion may provoke insight as our conversation delves into some of the most perplexing human questions.

Clearly, this study and conversation are vital. Each day, our ever-expanding exposure to space environment changes us. Viewing a NASA image of space changes our consciousness. Cultural involvement in space travel changes our consciousness. Viewing programs on UFOs and contactees changes our consciousness. Though we may not personally step foot on a lunar or planet  surface, though earth-oriented technologies provide our means to travel, research, mine and explore off planet—our consciousness is changed.

As a community of individuals, we form beliefs, attitudes and ideas about space and extraterrestrial life. Our minds create mental grooves.  Over time, via information and sensations, we cultivate an array of familiar beliefs and ideas.  Therefore, taking the next step is crucial.

Introduction to Exoconsciousness asks you to delineate, refine and choose the grooves that compose your cultural consciousness regarding extraterrestrial presence. It invites you to question and clarify your assumptions. It spurs a clarion call for intentionality in your growing awareness.

So, how will you change? Exoconsciousness beckons you to develop and utilize an advanced consciousness defined by multiple psychic abilities along with interdimensional, multiverse awareness. Your body and mind will be challenged to transform.

Specifically, an Exoconscious world-view and abilities 1) clarify the intention of our relationship with extraterrestrials and their influence in our lives and culture, 2) construct the framework for distinguishing between various extraterrestrial motivations and behaviors, 3) mature and advance us to higher states of consciousness necessary for our progression as an inter-planetary, space faring species and 4) open possible communication and relationship with extraterrestrials,

Sure, all of this Exoconscious exploration will be intriguing and fun. And, it will also require academic rigor to comprehend quantum and neural science, biology and physics of consciousness, as well as become familiar with cutting-edge philosophy, religion, mythology and the history of extraterrestrial contact and contactees.

Instructor: Randy Hastings

Proxy: Deborah Lindsey

This form of shamanic Reiki combines the energies of Reiki with the teachings, techniques, and symbols of the Toltec/Mayan shamanic cultures of Mexico. It is a form of hands-on healing that is designed to introduce spiritual seekers and energetic healers to the basic concepts, energies, and techniques of the Toltec Nagual Shamans of Central & Southern Mexico, the Yucatec/Mayan shamans, and the Moundbuilder energies from North America (who are descendants of the Naguals of ancient Mexico) combined with the energies of the original Japanese Usui Reiki. This class is excellent for anyone who is interested in learning reiki or honing their reiki skills. It is an excellent way to “pump up the volume” on the skills you already have as reiki healer in any of the other traditions or to learn something brand new. This is an excellent class for anyone who is interested in learning shamanism or who will be taking the Shamanic Studies training through IMU. Toltec Nagual Reiki was created in 2007 by Chojal Nohol (Rev. Randall Hastings) after more than 25 years of continued study, initiations, and practice in Toltec/Mayan Nagual shamanism, 30 years of Chinese Qigong practice, and over 10 years practice as a Master/Teacher of many different forms of Reiki. Rev. Hastings is an initiated Medicine Priest of the Order of the Feathered Serpent and an initiate in the Toltec Order of Tezcatlipoca (Jaguar shamanism) and also a trained Mayan Jaguar Initiate and Shamanism.

Instructor: Mark Perkins

Ho’oponopono is a simple yet effective healing process that has been used by the Hawaiians for thousands of years. The goal of Ho’oponopono can be found by breaking down the term: ho’o—to make, do, create; pono—balance, goodness, correctness, perfect order; onopono—a method of creating perfect order and balance in order to heal a situation. Through discussion, prayer, honesty, ceremony, and forgiveness, Ho’oponopono offers the ability to heal on mental, intra-personal, physical, temporal, and spiritual levels. Ho’oponopono also helps you to reconnect with your family (ohana as the Hawaiians call it), loved ones, and those with which you are/have been in connection. In SHA605, you will learn this Hawaiian spiritual counseling technique for achieving balance in relationships and situations of many kinds. Additionally, you will use your shamanic journeying skills to observe the results of Ho’oponopono. In the course, we will learn basic Hawaiian spiritual concepts, review the Ho’oponopono method including history, concepts, ritual and ceremony, and integrate this teaching into the student’s current shamanic practices. Students will select three real-life cases and put these principles to work.

School of Ufology

UFO 501 Introduction to Ufology

Instructor: Richard Dolan

A proper study of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) is a broad undertaking, involving many separate disciplines. Unfortunately, there are very few college-level courses that deal with this subject at all. Fewer still that make an effort to cover it in a balanced manner, and probably none that address the full spectrum of issues related to it. This is a comprehensive overview of the UFO phenomenon for people of the 21st century. It provides up-to-date information and analysis relating to the full history of UFOs, from ancient times to our own era, focusing on the most significant and instructive cases. But there is much more to this course. We will be dealing with political issues, such as the history of the U.S. government and military/intelligence community in relation to UFOs. That is, we will analyze the cover-up. In so doing, we will find that UFOs pose a serious problem to that community, one that its members may not be handling as well as they would like. We may also conclude that at least some of the UFOs people are seeing are made by “us.” We will also study philosophical and investigative problems brought about by UFOs, including how ordinary objects and events might fool us, and how they differ from “true UFOs.” Moreover, in an age of Internet, of Facebook and Youtube, when information practically overwhelms us, we will discuss how to separate fact from fiction, legitimate issues from fear-mongering or fantasy-peddling.

Barbara Lamb Teaches about UFOs at the International Metaphysical UniversityUFO 503 Variety of Extraterrestrial Encounters

Instructor: Barbara Lamb

Millions of people worldwide are having encounters with unusual beings who apparently come from somewhere other than earth. We call these beings ‘extraterrestrials’ or ‘aliens’. They make an impressive impact on the people they visit and take away for an hour or two of time. This requires a profound adjustment in their view of reality. These people benefit from specialized help such as recalling details of their encounters through hypnotic regressions, and from counseling by a therapist well acquainted with and appreciative of this anomalous, puzzling phenomenon. In this course the student will learn about the range of people who have encounters with extraterrestrial beings, clues and evidence that these encounters have happened, determining the reality or unreality of the encounters, the large variety of beings who visit people, the wide range of procedures that the beings do with abducted humans (including procedures publicized by public media and lesser known procedures), negatively experienced encounters and positively experienced encounters, various types of ongoing relationships with individual ET beings, the reproduction program and hybrid babies (and the reasons given for this), people being educated on space crafts and by receiving downloaded information from the ETs. Students will learn about the process of therapy for ‘experiencers’ of these encounters, and helpful resources for them, as well as many other interesting details of this phenomenon.

It provides students an opportunity to work directly with a mentor conducting research or creating a professional portfolio showcasing knowledge and skills acquired in the masters program. Each student will choose a capstone project track in consultation with the instructor. This choice will reflect the student’s interest and must further be approved by the IMU Academic Dean. The Capstone Project represents the culmination of the knowledge gained at IMU and put into practical use through either a research project, which is designed to test a theory and to feed the knowledge base of the field at large, or through a portfolio project, wherein a student represents significant experience in the field to show practical application of information learned.
