with Pioneering Contemporary Spiritual Teacher &
Internationally Renowned Mystic-Scholar
Andrew Harvey
New Live Training Starts
Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Have you hungered for a complete approach to spiritual awakening – one that fuses Heaven and Earth, masculine and feminine, stillness and action into one alchemical path?

Are you done with consoling platitudes – yearning for the straight truth – and willing to go through whatever changes are necessary to stand as the sacred, powerful being that you are?

Then you are ready for mystical scholar Andrew Harvey, who is offering you nothing less than a synthesis of the spiritual gold from the highest teachings of the East and West, North and South.

They all point to a profound destination: the birth of the “Divine Human,” a new stage of our evolution. In this phase, we experience a unification of our highest and lowest natures – alchemized together in our hearts and expressed in sacred action.

This is not an abstract idea, but rather a higher calling for all of us who are awakening and committed to being positive change agents.

To avert planetary calamities, Andrew believes it will take many, many “Divine Humans” to create a new template for sacred action and enlightened service, sourced from a deep divinization of our bodies, minds and souls.

That template is not finalized as we are ALL its co-creators. Together we are forging a path beyond what we’ve known, guided by our great spiritual ancestors and inspired by our pioneering colleagues.

While it is a shared exploration, Andrew Harvey gives voice and vision to this path as perhaps no one else ever has.

That is because he is no armchair teacher – he has steeped himself in the world’s wisdom traditions, writing more than 40 books that harvest and synthesize the gems from Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Sufism, Shamanism and divine feminine traditions. And, he has passionately undertaken his own profound, shattering, liberating initiation into birthing the Divine Human within himself.

And now, for the first time, he is ready to share the full expression of this new synthesis.

In The Divine Human training, he builds upon the realizations of the great mystics of the past and shows how they all point toward the unification of multiple wisdom streams, which together illuminate our path to a truly divinized life.

In this unprecedented offering, Andrew will show you how to remove the “glass ceiling” on your spiritual growth and walk a path that is at once sublime and humble, transcendently wise and embodied, passionate and engaged in life.

This pathway leads into the heart of divinized sexual relationships, a transformed relationship with the Earth and with animals, a new relationship with God/Goddess, and a new kind of sacred evolutionary movement for change.

It is both fiery and tender at the same time. It includes the traditional “cool” practices of transcendence, while blending them with the “hot” fires of erotic initiation and “warm” reverence for the Earth.

Andrew is an electrifying, heart-opening teacher who understands the transformation into our divine humanity in a unique and liberating way. He draws us into a mature and rigorous relationship with the Divine.

His words can sometimes be bracing or confrontative before they then melt into the tender, ecstatic tones of one who is deeply, passionately in love with God. He does not merely whisper sweet nothings in your ear, but actually shakes you awake into the unconditional love that is your birthright and our destiny.

If you are sincere in your hunger for divine truth, and committed to both your spiritual growth and your divine service, this course was designed for YOU.

It builds on four decades of Andrew’s profound mystical scholarship, as well as his most sublimely shattering spiritual openings, to give you a clear-eyed map and a powerful set of practices that can – if you truly harness them – propel you through the birth canal into a new way of life.

That new way of life will not be all sweetness and light. It will have its rigors, intensities and challenges. But you will be given practices to meet those challenges with strength and tenderness, fully rooted in the awe and wonder of the universe, riding ever-widening waves of grace.

During the seven modules, Andrew will cut through surface truths to liberate the magma at your core and, in its liberation, allow you to birth new ground on which you can stand for the next stage of your spiritual journey.

The Importance of Embodying Your Divine Human

We are blessed to be alive at one of the most amazing moments in history, when all that was once hidden is now being revealed, including the esoteric truths of mystics from around the world.

Humanity is awakening to who we truly are; at once finite and infinite, matter and spirit, human and divine.

And yet, as the veils are slowly lifted, the chasm also widens between those of us who are “waking up” and those of us that choose to continue to remain unconscious. The symptoms of that “sleep” are horrifying: consumerism, waste and war creating carnage in human society and our natural ecosystems.

We are fast approaching the crossroads of our destiny. Many believe that this decade is our crucial, turning-point time before we hit systemic breakdown.

If we continue down the path we are on, the path of unconscious materialism, we will face the potential destruction of ourselves and our planet.

However, if we can find the courage to wake up and walk a new path as Divine Humans, we will have a precious, rare opportunity to create this world in a wholly new way.

The Divine Human offers a foundational, even essential, set of teachings and practices for seeing THIS world as divine – given to us to steward in a way that leads to peace, communal prosperity, health and justice.

It is a path based on Oneness and seeing ourselves as a sacred family. It is a path of blessing, wholeness, and embodiment.

It is a love-filled antidote to the soul-deadening, planet-destroying greed, which holds enormous sway over our culture, our businesses, our politics and our minds.

Our collective crises are now leading us into an intensely personal and collective rite of passage to face and heal our shadow in order to reclaim our full divinity and open to this higher octave of possibility.

If you can consciously embrace this transformative journey, you not only transmute your suffering but fulfill the ultimate purpose of evolution, which is to bring Heaven to Earth and birth God in humankind.

That is what awaits you on the other side of your rite of passage of becoming a Divine Human.

The Importance of a Sacred Guide

The good news is that Andrew Harvey has dedicated his life to navigating this passage and making the most powerful teachings and practices available to those of you who are ready to receive it.

He is the prolific author of over 40 books and spiritual classics, including The Essential Mystics, The Son of Man and The Heart of Yoga. He has a remarkable gift for opening our eyes and peeling away the falsehoods to reveal the wild, liberating truth at our core.

On a personal level, he’s been through the fires of the inner “Dark Night,” the heart-opening illuminations – and the intense disillusionments that have cracked him open, bringing him to his knees again and again.

Andrew knows the terrain of the birthing of the Divine Human in a way that few others do. Because of his scholarly depth and personal experience, there is perhaps no more articulate, passionate and perceptive teacher to lead others on this journey.

And that is why we are so excited to offer – exclusive to The Shift Network – the groundbreaking course, The Divine Human, with him.

It promises to be one of the most exciting, no-holds-barred trainings that Andrew has ever shared in a virtual setting. This sacred offering from his heart to yours is a chance to harvest the bounty of a lifetime of mystical practice and rigorous scholarship to accelerate your path of incarnating more and more divinity.

The Divine Human has been created for heart-centered, open-minded, globally-concerned seekers, like you, to begin on a profound, life-changing odyssey together.

The journey will help you clear away lingering falsehoods that have distorted so many religious (and New Age) traditions. It will lead you instead into profound openings, mind-expanding recognitions, and the next steps on your path to transformation of body, mind and soul.

You’ll have the chance to unlock the innermost, esoteric secrets of divinization and receive the hidden truths, liberating practices and profound blessings of not only Andrew, but of many extraordinary mystics.

The goal is to pioneer and practice a 21st century embodiment of the Divine: grounded in sacred action, suffused with wisdom and illuminated by a sacred fire.

The only requirement to enter this journey is a commitment in your heart to walk the path with real dedication, as the course is for those with a powerful love for this world and a sincere desire to become an emissary of the Divine.

How to Embody the Divine Human in Your Daily Life

So, if you are one of those rare individuals who has heard your soul’s calling and yearns to make living as a Divine Human a priority in your life, then this is a truly special opportunity for you.

This life-changing journey is being offered with the sincere intention of fueling the sacred fire in your heart and empowering you to make permanent shifts in your awareness, while expanding the collective field of transformation to saturate your life, your community, and eventually our planet.

When you complete the course, you will not only have forged friendships and connections with a community of awakening souls, but you will have also more fully integrated the path of divinization into your daily life.

During this journey, you will receive:

  • Specific teachings from 4 initiatory streams that are essential for becoming a Divine Human (shamanic, tantric, transcendent and sacred activism).
  • Clarity around the actual stages of the path – drawing from evolutionary traditions like Kabbalah, Shaivism, Sufism and Hinduism.
  • A deeper view of the Divine Evolutionary plan and its unfolding.
  • A clear understanding of the 4 laws of shamanic wisdom and how they apply to your life.
  • Insights on the inner science of transfiguration and how to navigate the “dark night of the soul.”
  • Profound wisdom on marrying spiritual practice and sacred action to heal the world.
  • 7 sacred practices that can deepen your journey and allow the alchemy of your heart to work its magic.
  • A powerful activation and integration of passion into the core of your spiritual life.

What You’ll Learn in These 7 Modules

Course sessions are on Tuesdays at 5:00pm Pacific.

In this 7-part transformational course, Andrew will guide you through the fundamental spiritual skills and competencies that you’ll need to successfully embody the Divine Human, with tools that will make this sacred integration real to you and active in the depths of your life.

Each contemplation and training session will build harmoniously upon the next, so that you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles you’ll need to sustain your path as a Divine Human in everyday life.

Module 1: The Birth of the Divine Human

Drawn from his own experience with major mystical traditions as well as the work of evolutionary mystics such as Sri Aurobindo and Bede Griffiths, Andrew Harvey will present his vision of our world crisis as the birthing ground of a new kind of human being – the Divine Human. He will show that this birth springs from both an unflinching look at the extremes of the crisis and a celebration of our essential divine identity.

He will lay out an overview of the four essential streams of divine wisdom that now have to be fused to make this birth possible – the shamanic, the transcendent, the tantric and sacred activism.

In this module, you will receive:

  • A deeper understanding of the Divine Evolutionary plan.
  • A vision of the dance of opposites, through which this plan works.
  • An overview of the evolutionary worldview of the major mystical traditions.
  • The essence of the living experience of divine transformation of Sri Aurobindo and Bede Griffiths, and what you can learn from them.
  • An initiatory understanding of the 4 essential streams of evolutionary wisdom, and how they work together in your transfiguration.

Featured Practice: The “I Am” practice of divine identity from Ramana Maharshi that leads to realization of Self.

Module 2: The Shamanic Ground

Drawing on his own experiences of shamanic initiation – in Ecuador with an Amazonian shaman, with the white Lions of Timbatati in South Africa, and with aboriginal elders in Australia – Andrew will unfold his vision of the necessity of honoring the shamanic vision and its wisdom as the grounds of divine evolution. Special stress will be placed on four laws of this wisdom; the law of interdependence with the creation; the law honoring the rhythms of creation; the law of celebration of creation and of life as sacred, and the law of taking responsibility for honoring these laws. He will go into detail about the Aboriginal vision of Kanyini, and he will also show the shadow of shamanic wisdom – it’s overly strong fusion with nature and lack of complete knowledge of transient origin.

In this module, you will:

  • Experience a deep awareness of the necessity of shamanic wisdom for our survival.
  • Develop a clear understanding of the 4 laws that this shamanic wisdom reveals.
  • Receive insights into the sacred equality of the creation of life.
  • Gain an expansive vision of the splendor and sanity of aboriginal knowledge.
  • Receive a profound understanding of the shadow of shamanic wisdom.

Featured Practice: An Australian aboriginal practice to experience directly the sacred life in all things, realizing that all the world is “looking back” at you with eyes of divine compassion.

Module 3:The Celebration of the Transcendent Revelation

Andrew Harvey will celebrate the revolution of the Axial Age; its breakthrough to living knowledge of divine origin. Drawing on the great Axial pioneers – the sages of the Upanishads, the Buddha and Lao Tzu – he will show how this knowledge of transcendent origin gives human beings a radical new level of divine truth and power. He will also explore the shadow of transcendental revelation – a dedication to transience, a devaluation of the creation, body, sexuality and relationship, and an over emphasis on human uniqueness.

In this module, you will:

  • Receive a deep understanding of the radical breakthrough of the Axial Age.
  • Open to a vision of how this breakthrough enlightens the shadow of shamanic wisdom.
  • Deepen your awareness of how the vision of transcendental identity opens up new powers for humanity.
  • Gain deeper knowledge of the interconnection of Buddhism, Hinduism and Taoism, and its evolutionary meaning.
  • Become aware of the cost of the shadow of the Axial Age.

Featured Practice: A sacred practice from the Hindu saint Rabia, involving the practice of saying the name of GOD to enter into ecstatic, divine union.

Module 4: Tantric Revelation

In this module, Andrew will transmit his vision of how the Tantric Revelation of later Hinduism, Mahayana Buddhism and Christianity corrected the addiction to transcendence inherent in the Axial Age. Special emphasis will be given to Jesus and the revolutionary fusion in his work and life of the shamanic, transient and tantric knowledge of the Divine, and how this fusion opens up a path of transfiguration for all human beings.

In this module, you will:

  • Learn how the Tantric Revelation depends on a dynamic vision of the motherhood of GOD and reveals the five great passions that must be combined to integrate this completely:
    • The passion of GOD as mother
    • The passion of creation as the embodied mother
    • The passion of compassion for all sentient beings
    • The passion of tantric relationships
    • The passion for radical action to honor the mother’s laws
  • Gain clarity about the true main shadow of Tantra – license in the name liberation.
  • Receive a deeper understanding about the temptation to use the powers that Tantra gives for personal glory, and not the service of humanity.

Featured Practice: The Gazing Practice of Rumi and Shams of Tabriz, which you can practice with your beloved, your companions, or even a cherished pet.

Module 5: The Transfiguration of the Body and the Birth of the Divine Androgyne

In this module, we really bring together the streams and plunge deep into the transformation of the body by unifying the masculine and feminine sides of our nature. Many of the great spiritual teachers embodied both masculine and feminine characteristics, and it is in the full embrace that we are born into a new kind of wholeness and open the pathway to a divinized body and divinized sexual relationships.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Develop an expanded range of understanding of the sacred masculine from Sufism, Mahayana Buddhism, the Cult of Dionysus in Greek Mysticism, and the complex vision of Shiva and Shaivism.
  • Experience deeper mystical practices to connect with the Divine Mother.
  • Wake up your divine centers, the chakras in the depths of your body, to open to an archetypal transfiguration and experience the blessing of that transfiguration process.
  • Develop an expanded capacity for forgiveness of oneself and others for the damage of the past.
  • Create an alchemical container internally to work with the wounds that need to be resolved.
  • Develop practices to heal the imbalance in the individual and collective psyche.
  • See how the 5 crucial shadows of our global crisis (disbelief, denial, dread, disillusion and death wish) and 5 personal shadows (narcissism, love of comfort, woundology, fear of witnessing the truth and the golden shadow) align, dovetail and collude to keep our world crisis going.

Featured Sacred Practice: The Golden Light Embodiment Practice in which you visualize golden light pouring from the Mother’s outstretched hands to wake up the energy centers known as the chakras, helping the body go through an archetypal transfiguration and blessing. Andrew says this is the most powerful practice he knows!

Module 6: Sacred Activism

As you fuse the four sacred streams into one and begin to birth the Divine Human in you, it becomes more apparent and imperative to engage in right actions to help our world evolve, heal, and manifest its glory. The Sacred Activist marries the mystic’s passion for God with the activist’s passion for justice and out of the two, a holy “third fire” is born in which you become a living flame of love in action.

In this module, you will:

  • Learn the art and discipline of sacred activism – awakened love and service in action.
  • Experience the power of tonglen meditation in which you transmute the darkness of the world in the alchemical vessel of your heart.
  • Learn to build a Buddha heart filled with deathless love so that you are not afraid to take on the pain and chaos of reality.
  • Know this innate Buddha heart in all its holy power as an inner form of sacred activism that you can access when dealing with difficult people and explosive energies.
  • Understand the evolutionary re-engagement necessary to complete the birth of your divine humanity.
  • Learn how Heaven and Earth reunite through us and our bodies.
  • Go beyond the pursuit of personal enlightenment to discover how you can co-create an awakened culture and society.
  • Experience powerful practices to awaken and embody more of your innate divinity through focused prayer and action that flows from your heart.

Featured Sacred Practice: Tonglen Practice for you to face and transform pain, suffering, horror, chaos and even madness by visualizing all the dark pain of a situation as a black smoke that dissolves and transforms in your Christ/Buddha heart, expressing again as love.

Module 7: The Way Forward

In the seventh module, Andrew will offer the way forward by integrating the four streams of tantric, transcendent, shamanic and sacred activist transmission. He will address the way forward through whatever may now unfold as the potential birth of the Divine Human in you.

In this module, you will:

  • Understand more deeply how you can walk a pragmatic path of love in action.
  • Learn how to effectively organize networks of grace and circles of support for those doing this birthing work.
  • Discover ways to more fully integrate your core practices into your daily life, and embody the Divine Human moment-to-moment.
  • Recognize and avoid the pitfalls, perils and temptations on the path of illumination.
  • Experience union by passing through the Dark Night into the New Dawn.
  • Become a midwife for the birth of divine consciousness into the world.

Featured Sacred Practice : A profound shadow practice that includes a Taoist Laughing Dance – exploding you with laughter and playfulness even as you work with deep shadows.

– Caroline Myss, Author of Anatomy of the Spirit andSacred Contracts

Amid the myriad challenges we face on Earth – the population explosion, environmental degradation, nuclear proliferation, religious fundamentalism, terrorism, war, apocalypse-think, and more – it is easy to be overwhelmed by a sense of futility and hopelessness. Now comes a singularly courageous, charismatic individual – Andrew Harvey – with an answer to all of these challenges: personal transformation and empowerment through an encounter with the divine feminine. This process is not esoteric, but is entirely natural and as near as our own shadow. Harvey’s sacred activism is a corrective to the doomsayers and do-nothings who are part of our problems. He is a modern version of a fiery, Old-Testament prophet, whose words were ignored at great peril. We must attend to Andrew Harvey’s message.

More Praise for Andrew Harvey...

Andrew Harvey is an enlightened spirit – a messenger from the Divine.
– Gloria Vanderbilt

Our world is awash with activism, is drowning in activism, but it is the wrong kind. Andrew Harvey’s sacred activism is the only form that is likely to save us from the narrow, destructive preoccupations that seem to mesmerize us humans. Only an attention to the heart – for "sacred" and "heart" reflect a common meaning – can generate the hope, courage, and vision required for our troubled times. It is important to realize that Andrew Harvey’s message is not a matter of philosophy, but of survival.
– Barbara Dossey, PhD, RN, AHN-BC, FAAN

Amid the gloom-and-doom predictions and total denial so prevalent today, Andrew Harvey’s is a singular voice speaking truth about our current situation. In impassioned yet pragmatic terms, he lays out the grave problems humanity faces, from WMDs and environmental desecration to epidemic levels of attention disorder, outlining the grim fate that awaits us if we fail to mend our ways. But unlike the chorus of modern-day Cassandras, Andrew doesn’t leave us there, mired in despair. Setting out a course of radical and reasoned action, he empowers us to become spiritual activists and reclaim our planet from the suicidal trajectory we’re traveling. We could have no more compelling guide to today’s challenges and their solutions. It’s breathtaking to hear so unsettling a subject articulated with such intelligence and grace.
– Joan Duncan Oliver, Journalist and Author of Happiness: How to Get It and Keep It

At this critical juncture in history, Andrew Harvey’s teachings on sacred activism are sounding a clarion call to all who care deeply about the future of humanity and of the planet. We cannot open to creative solutions to the enormous challenges that confront us without looking truthfully and fearlessly at the horrific things that are taking place in our world and at the same time holding to a powerful vision of what is possible through a radical transformation of our consciousness. The Chinese character for the word crisis contains the characters for danger and opportunity, and in this powerful film, Andrew Harvey clearly outlines both these elements of our current world crisis as he makes the case that the darkness of our time is also the birth canal for the emergence of a divine humanity. He passionately calls us to dedicate ourselves to being midwives of this birth, and describes in very practical terms the five dimensions of service that comprise a commitment to live as Sacred Activists. I cannot imagine a more important teaching for our time.
– Rev. Diane Berke, Spiritual Director, One Spirit Learning Alliance
