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.
TELEOS INSTITUTE CLASS OFFERINGS
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.
Deposits are refundable only if the class is cancelled by us.
Registration Open to All
Is The Quest For Peace An Illusion?
The older I get the more I watch my hopes for humanity and the world diminish in vibrancy. I didn't say disappear or even fade, but the vibrancy has dimmed somewhat. Every now and then I get a boost, such as when Macron was elected in France, or when citizens speak out respectfully at town meetings, or when girls who were held hostage are released. Every day I remind myself that holding hope for peace in the world is too large a scope; I really must focus on myself and how I can BE THE CHANGE I WANT TO SEE HAPPEN every day.
The Paradigm Shift of Our Time
In the spring of 2017 we did a class called “Paradigm Shifts.” We began by defining paradigm shifts as major changes in the way we think about things and how we believe things should be done. Then we explored the various paradigm shifts we have lived through in our own lifetimes. They are too many even to enumerate, and the longer we live, the longer the list becomes.
Differences, for Better or Worse, 2017
Retail stores may soon vanish from view. They are large behemoths, filled with an overload of merchandise on floors devoid of customers. They are quickly being replaced by on-line shopping from the comfort of home. Back in the day, people used to shop that way, from catalogs, in small towns across America where there were no department stores. Now we do it from screen-catalogs, with free shipping. What goes around, comes around, sometimes even better than before.

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.
