Beyond Belief, developing Spiritual Awareness

An exploration of the reality, the value, and the viability of living a spiritual life. Simply put–getting to know your role in existence-through creative expression, discussion, and mindfulness. On Zoom and periodic live events at Lupin.

Errol has spent the last fifty years probing spiritual consciousness, and through my work and artistic creations have attempted to share that awareness with others. Besides offering informal classes and workshops on creativity and spirituality Errol has taught programs at Mundelein College in Chicago, Holy Names College in Oakland and the University of Miami, FL. Some of his spiritual teachers include: “A Course in Miracles,” , “The Urantia Book,” “The Power of Now,” “Conversations with God,” Jeshua’s Talks with Glenda Green (“Jesus Speaks” & “Keys of Jeshua”), Yogananda, Thomas Merton, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Martin Buber plus numerous other philosophers, mystics and psychologists.
