CON 501 Principles of Metaphysics
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 revealed 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.

I would just like to say thank you Deborah for your awesome lectures. Listening to them regularly in my car has helped me to raise my vibration because they are full of the higher vibrational ideas and thoughts. Studying the Kybalion was an excellent experience for me. I spent several weeks totally immersed in an alternate mode of thought that has become very beneficial. I recommend this class for anyone who is looking to expand themselves at any level.
Since last week I have been surprised to find myself thinking about the Kybalion a lot. Even though I’m just at the beginning of this journey, I am already able to see how this applies to so many things…..So needless to say, I have been in a very good mood all week and feel like I am vibrating higher than normal. Being in this state of mind made it much easier to see my friends who are vibrating at lower frequencies. When you mentioned that we would change who we surrounded ourselves with, I didn’t really believe it. But now, I’m already having trouble being around negative people. It’s almost like I have a new way of identifying who is positive in my life. I can see people being negative and vibrating at a lower frequency when they don’t have to. It’s not that these people are upset because bad things are happening to them, it’s that they are making bad things happen to themselves and are choosing to stay in a low vibration. It really seems super simple now.
Love, loved, loved the class! Wow! My life has changed dramatically! Can’t wait to continue! I am reading Mike Dooley now but am always looking for that Kybalion-type book that sparks interest, as I want to keep the momentum going.
What would be your suggestion on the next class I should take and also reading recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for suggesting the class. I loved you as a teacher!!! Thanks for everything!
A life-changing class that should be prerequisite in schools all across the country! Truly amazing and inspiring!

Thank you so much for recommending this class as my “first” here at IMU. The Kybalion is now part of my “permanent library.” So many things that I intuitively “knew”, I could never put into words. The principles that guide higher thought, truth, the conscious and subconscious minds, vibration… have all touched my mind and spirit in a way that is life changing. This is pure wisdom… this is what I seek.
