John-Roger, D.S.S., Founder of MSIA
For over 40 years, John-Roger has traveled the world guiding people to find the Spirit within themselves, and teaching how to live a healthy, loving, peaceful and rewarding life.
In 1968, John-Roger founded the nondenominational Church of the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness, through which he has shared the teachings of Soul Transcendence, which is becoming aware of oneself as a Soul and as one with God, not as a theory but as a living reality.
John-Roger has led groups of up to 150 people on Peace Awareness Trainings throughout the Middle East. His journeys have taken him to such places as the former USSR, Yugoslavia, China, Japan, Israel, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, and throughout Africa, South America, North America, Australia and Europe.
In the late seventies, John-Roger established Network Of Wisdoms (NOW) Productions, which has recorded over 6000 of his seminars, and also produces his nationally shown cable TV show, That Which Is. Besides his own show, John-Roger has appeared on numerous radio and television shows and been a featured guest on Larry King Live.
His influence extends into the educational arena, as he is the founder, first president, and now chancellor of the University of Santa Monica (USM). USM offers Master’s and Doctoral degrees in Spiritual Psychology. He is the founder and chancellor of Peace Theological Seminary and College of Philosophy (PTS), which offers Master of Spiritual Science and Doctorate of Spiritual Science degrees; PTS headquarters is home to Peace Awareness Labyrinth & Gardens. He is the founder and chairman of the board of Insight Seminars which offers experiential, transformational seminars; he is the founder and first president of the Institute of Individual and World Peace; and he is the founder and spiritual adviser of the Heartfelt Foundation.
John-Roger is a prolific writer, with over 50 books to his name and 4 Bestsellers including a #1 NY Times Bestsellers. His newest books, The Rest of Your Life, Serving & Giving, and Living the Spiritual Principles of Health and Well-Being (all written with Dr. Paul Kaye), as well as Fulfilling Your Spiritual Promise and many others, are available for order online through Amazon.com and are in bookstores nationwide. To keep up with his writing, he founded Mandeville Press, an independent publishing house that publishes books offering a contemporary look at ancient wisdom. John-Roger also co-wrote and co-produced Spiritual Warriors, an award-winning movie inspired by his book, Spiritual Warrior: The Art of Spiritual Living. For more information on the movie, please go to www.spiritualwarriors.com.
In all that he does, John-Roger encourages people to check out for themselves the information he presents and, through their own experience, see how it works to bring them more abundance, joy and loving in their lives. He has transformed the lives of many people by educating them in the wisdom of the Spiritual Heart.
The common thread throughout all of John-Roger’s work is loving – of self and others, and God – and encouragement for each person to discover that loving within, for that is where God also dwells.
