You are invited to view an online program to explore the most fundamental questions facing us as individuals and as a society—what is the nature of consciousness, where are we as a society in progressing our collective consciousness, and how can we advance our own personal consciousness.
Drawing on the teachings of Meher Baba, a widely recognized spiritual authority, this course will address questions such as:
What is the purpose of creation as a means for progressing consciousness?
What is the uniqueness of this time in human history and what is in store for humanity in the coming era?
How can we as individuals participate in our own spiritual development, and how can we help shift humanity’s overall level of consciousness?
Specific topics include:
Session One: Evolution of Consciousness
Session Two: Involution of Consciousness
Session Three: How Consciousness Progresses
Session Four: Role of the Master
Session Five: Avatar Meher Baba's Life and Work
Session Six: The New Humanity
Session Seven: The Path of Love
Each session addresses a different topic, all directly related to the understanding of consciousness and how it applies to one's personal spiritual development.
This program is offered at no cost to participants.

What is the basis of this program?
Countless individuals through the ages have pursued ways to expand consciousness—some religious, some chemical or plant-based, and some direct spiritual approaches. The urge to expand consciousness seems to emanate from a sense that there is a higher reality and experience that could be available if one only knew how to go about pursuing it. Those who have sought out this experience consistently report that its essential nature is love.
Meher Baba is one who has provided an authoritative answer to this age-old question—both through his writings and teachings, but even more-so through providing a direct inner connection with the source of this experience.
Through in-depth and unequivocal declarations, Meher Baba says that his is the latest incarnation of the Avatar—the direct incarnation of God in human form—and that prior Avataric advents include Zoroaster, Krishna, Rama, Buddha, Jesus, and Mohammed. He states that his role is to bring about a universal awakening and the opportunity for any sincere individual to find him within their own being. Meher Baba said that the Avatar’s advent would usher in a new era that he called "the New Humanity", in which consciousness would be uplifted spiritually throughout civilization.
The Journey in Consciousness program will introduce the teachings and life-work of Avatar Meher Baba as yet another way to help individuals expand their consciousness and vitalize their spiritual life.
“This webinar series presented by Daniel Stone is an incredible gem , packed with insight and wisdom. Daniel is both a respected international change agent and deeply knowledgeable about Meher Baba. As for the teachings of Meher Baba, they are indeed the pristine fountain of Avataric guidance that those of us who are midwives of the birth of the new humanity can recognize as Truth.”
James O’Dea, author of The Conscious Activist and Soul Awakening Practice
"Journey in Consciousness represents a very timely contribution to the body of existent online content relating to Meher Baba and to spiritual pursuit in general. It offers a genuinely superb introduction to Meher Baba in the present time and context. Yet I feel that this presentation will prove to have enduring value. It addresses basic questions that sincere seekers will continue to have and offers simple but deep explanations that render Meher Baba's 'philosophy and teachings' in a succinct and accurate way.

About the image of "Laudatio"
Laudatio was painted by Marika Popovits, a visionary artist who resides in Crestone, Colorado (marikapopovitsart.net) where she creates paintings that represent the transcendent nature of consciousness. Laudatio (meaning "praise") was chosen for this program as it captures the unfolding and varied journey of the soul through different experiences, reaching always toward the Light.
The program is presented by Daniel Stone, a long-time follower of Meher Baba.
