At a certain stage in the developmental process, a strong urge to know arises in individuals. The basic questions of life awaken with a personal force:
Who am I? Why am I? How am I? What am I?
The urge to know through personal, direct experience compels us to undertake a solitary quest beyond group identities, beliefs and guidelines, into the individualizing process. This is the beginning of the spiritual journey.



FALL 2017

with Arleen Lorrance & Diane K. Pike

What’s the Message?

A Wisdom Class by Telephone, Recording and E-Mail

Beginning September 9, 2017

2:30 – 4:00 PM Arizona time

(Dates & times are negotiable once the group is formed)

Our intention will be to discover the individual meaning of events occurring around us.

This seems to be a time in which many disasters are occurring. In the East they attribute this to the Age of Kali when destruction of the old is occurring to make room for the new which will eventually emerge. For those of us living through these times the challenge is to expose what is hidden in our own shadow and in our national shadows in order to co-create more harmonious realities.

We will use the Life As A Waking Dream method to discover what message is being offered to us as individuals, reflected in outer events such as political divisiveness, corruption, greed, racism, the gap between rich and poor, radical extremists, terrorist attacks, unemployment, gender discrimination, gun proliferation, the distraction of electronic devices, hacking and the lack of privacy, climate change and natural disasters. You will identify what outer event arouses deep feeling in you and then address it as a waking dream.

Participants will engage together in six conference calls which will be recorded for everyone’s further review. You will be asked to write out a report before each class and we will probe the deeper meaning together. In this way we will learn with and from each other and uncover ways to support one another as we seek to awaken to our inner challenges and contribute to the awakening within the group psyche.


Cost: $300.00 in full or in $50.00 increments.

Mail checks payable to Teleos Institute, 7439 E Beryl Avenue, Scottsdale, AZ 85258

By August 15, 2017 at the latest. Instruction for your class preparation will be sent upon receipt of your payment for the first class.

Bring the Love
He was one. Omar, with an assault weapon.
We are millions. People, with compassion.
We are the multitudes of heart, the counterpoint to horror.
We cannot stop those who hate, but we affirm life.
Today, blood was spilled.
In the coming tomorrows, we will embody goodness.
We will reach to strangers with presence and caring.
Omar was one terrorist.
We are a mass of kindness.
Bring the Love.

What Can We Do?

By  Arleen Lorrance & Mariamne Paulus

 We live in troubled times: terrorism, financial instability and insecurity, global warming, bullying in politics and through the Internet, secrets exposed, people living in poverty, thousands of refugees fleeing their homelands, problems with immigration, issues of the separation of religion and state, sexual struggles,  hunger, epidemics, natural disasters and severe weather – to name a few.


Changes in Our Group Psyche

By  Mariamne  Paulus

The 2016 Presidential campaign has offered a fascinating look into the changes occurring in our national group psyche. Donald Trump has been an outspoken reflection of all things no longer politically correct, and yet still alive in a large portion of the society. He speaks out loud the things they would like to say but no longer feel free to say publicly. He speaks in hyperbole, capturing the strong emotions behind the statements and encouraging people to hold strong to their convictions and points of view.


Uneventful Days

By  Arleen Lorrance

Until May 14 I was swimming at the YMCA every day until our own pool heated up to 80 degrees. Each year the days get just a little warmer a little earlier and we are grateful for that, although not for the climate change that is forcing it to happen.


No Longer Surprised

By Arleen Lorrance

Having turned 77 in February, I am making this the year of realizing that nothing is surprising, everything simply is!

I am no longer surprised that people get pleasure out of hurting other people, or abuse babies, or conduct mass killings for the sake of gaining reputation and power. I look at such things and say, “Yup. People are capable of just about everything.”


Intuition as a Spiritual GPS

By  Mariamne  Paulus

There are many ways to describe intuition; I have come to think of it, in many situations, as a kind of spiritual GPS. Long before I knew anything about intuition I had a strong sense of what was right for me and what was not, of what choices to make and which ones were wrong for me.


The Usefulness of Functioning Consciously

By Arleen Lorrance

Ever since I woke up out of the “dream of separateness” and had an experience of “Oneness with All,” back in 1969, I have been studying and applying “cosmic consciousness” in all aspects of my life. Those who have been blessed with this “awakening” know, as do I, that there are many benefits to functioning as a conscious person.

     The purpose of Teleos Institute is to provide orientation, training, experiential practice, challenge, inspiration, education, companionship, and support for those who are consciously choosing the individualizing process; to facilitate the shift in identification from personality to Self; and to encourage integrated, balanced, and creative expression in those who are awakening.

     Toward this end Teleos Institute offers classes, workshops, personal consultations and coaching sessions to foster integrated spiritual development and growth in individuals. We also publish a small magazine twice a year, called Emerging, and books.

Teleos is a Greek word pointing to the invisible plan that gives order to Cosmos. Teleos is the overall design or purpose directing nature toward her fulfillment. Teleos is the pattern hidden within each human being that guides the individualizing process. Teleos is the archetypal paradigm that resonates within us as human beings, prompting us to aspire to realize our full potential. Since Teleos is imprinted in each of us, we turn within for guidance and direction and then move outward to give expression to our unique and essential participation in the whole.
