About the Class
Do you yearn to live a bigger life that expresses more of your personal and spiritual potentials while also being of benefit to humankind?
Are you ready to engage a process of psychological and spiritual growth in a circle of trusted peers, facilitated by experienced guides on the spiritual path ?
If you seek liberation from limiting belief systems and old habits of feeling, thinking, and acting that no longer serve your path of progressive enlightenment, then you may benefit greatly from participating in From Comfort to Growth. This course uses time-tested principles of spiritual thinking and practice which facilitate the soul's orientation towards God-consciousness, loving service to others, and even to cosmic consciousness.
In this experiential course, wholehearted participants will be guided out of their comfort zone, through a process of transcending fear and learning new practical skills, towards higher and wider levels of intellectual, emotional, and spiritual intelligence.
This experience of metanoia describes the journey of changing one's mind, heart, self, and way of life. It results in an elevated way of living from enlightened love that is Spirit-led, Spirit-fulfilled, and dedicated to the upliftment of all people.
Please note: This experiential class is designed to stimulate spiritual education and growth and is not intended to be group therapy.
Students can visit the online classroom at their convenience, 24/7, to read, post and have written discussions with their peers and instructors.
Week 1: Preparation and commitment
Week 2: Moving out of our comfort zone
Week 3: Transcending fear - acquiring courage and spiritual strength
Week 4: Learning new practical inner skills
Week 5: Religious growth - connecting - making inner changes
Week 6: Spiritual growth - asking to be transformed - becoming more
Week 7: Morontia living and socializing - be more and more useful to others
One of the goals for any in-depth study
of The Urantia Book at UUI is for students to experience expanded cosmic consciousness
and enhanced spiritual perception.
Can I audit this class?
You will get the most out of this course if you enroll as an active participant. The course is designed to be experiential. Students are expected to make an effort to complete the weekly reading and discussion questions and engage in the online webinars as often as possible.
However, we do recognize that not everyone has the time to devote to assignments and live discussion. Any exposure to this material will be beneficial and stimulate spiritual growth. As a policy, UrantiaUniversity will allow students to take any course as an auditor. Note that all communications that auditors receive will be aimed at the active participant experience.
Will I get a grade for this class?
At this time, no grades are given for completing UUI classes. This class has been designed chiefly for personal enrichment.
This course is intended for students of The Urantia Book who are familiar with its theology, philosophy, and conceptual framework. Students of all levels may benefit from it.
After I enroll, what happens next?
After registering online for the Orientation session or class you will receive a confirmation email.
Around one week before the class starts, you will receive a reminder email about the start of class.
The night before the start date of the class you will receive a third email with the Zoom link for the live discussion.
About the Instructors:
Guy Perron has been a student of the revelation since 2000. Living its teachings has transformed him, his life, his way of being, his way of thinking, his way of seeing, his way of doing, his way of interacting, his way of serving, and continues to do so. He feels blessed that he was led to this transformative knowledge, and in making conscious daily effort to put it into practice his cosmic consciousness is expanding, his spiritual perception is enhancing, his soul is being nourished, and his God-given personality of deified reality is getting progressively realized.
His greatest joy is to share these living truths in the union of souls in order to improve, individually and collectively, our communion, communication, and collaboration with the Divine Presence indwelling each of us.
I have been a student of the revelation since 2001. I had the opportunity to be mentored in my early years by a man who was himself totally dedicated to the teachings of The Urantia Book and completely devoted to selfless service. He inspired me in his dedication. Today, I dedicate my entire life to bringing one more soul into the Kingdom.
We are all homeless until we return to our Father's house, which is nowhere else but in us. I accompany brothers and sisters on the threshold of our Father's house. God is practical, God is a living experience, God is a transformative way of living. My life has changed in a profound and meaningful way as a result of this divine relationship. That's why I want to share God with others. I love Him with all my being and with all my soul.
