Personal Empowerment

If you’re like most people you find that although you may make breakthroughs and progress in your personal investigations and contemplations, when in your daily life the insights tend to recede or disappear. How could you bring this work into your life more thoroughly, more deeply, and continue the work in life and not just on your own? How can you better actualize this consciousness in your self and your life?

Increasing Consciousness Groups

The Increasing Consciousness Group is an opportunity to help you do just that! It is designed to serve you while you serve others. You will get a great deal out of working with others. Not only does it provide an active involvement with the consciousness work and demand an increasing depth of understanding on your part, you will also run into questions and challenges that your mind would not come up with but others will. This gives you an opportunity to understand the subject matter better and with an ever expanding perspective. It also helps reveal areas of your own assumptions and ignorance, allowing you to awaken to and drop these limitations.

Four Cornerstone Principles

Become Self-Expanding

Become Whole and Complete

Create Effectiveness

Increase Communication and Clarity

In the group you’re supported to actualize the work in your life through assignments and instruction. There is no tuition for this program, instead, your contribution is to share the work with others by helping them to become more conscious and actualized as human beings themselves. In this way, not only do you grow but the consciousness work is spread to others as well. This very act will empower you in ways hard to imagine.

This program affords an excellent opportunity for you to learn more about yourself, and empowers you to engage in more grounded self-transformation. If this sounds like something you want to be a part of let us know and we can provide more information or answer any questions. If you haven’t already, begin reading The Book of Not Knowing.

If there are no groups in your city, you can create your own group by coming to the Center and participating in several weeks of Consciousness Workshops. Once you’re exposed to the work and have some experience of facilitation, you can join the Actualizing Consciousness Team around the world and start your own group. You’ll be given instructions and manuals and be supported every step of the way.

If you’re ready for active and live participation with the founder.

Online Participation


Although live interactions with a facilitator, especially Ralston, is the most powerful and effective way to progress, until such time as you can make that happen, you can participate in year-long eCourses, or mini six-week courses, as a home study.

Books and DVDs

If you can’t make it to Consciousness workshops live, it is possible to do an entire Consciousness workshop at home, preferably with a partner.
