John-Roger, D.S.S., Founder of MSIA

For over 50 years, John-Roger, DSS (Doctor of Spiritual Science), 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 1971, John-Roger, DSS 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, DSS 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, India, China, Japan, Israel, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, 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 6,000 of his seminars and which 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 the founder, first president, and now chancellor of the University of Santa Monica (USM), which offers master's degrees in Spiritual Psychology. He is the founder and chancellor of Peace Theological Seminary & College of Philosophy (PTS), which offers master and doctorate degrees in Spiritual Science; PTS headquarters is also home to Peace Awareness Labyrinth & Gardens. He is also the founder and chancellor of Insight University, which offers a doctorate degree in Transformational Leadership, and the founder and spiritual adviser of Insight Seminars, which offers experiential, transformational seminars. In addition, he is the founder and spiritual adviser of the Institute of Individual and World Peace and of The Heartfelt Foundation.  

John-Roger is a prolific writer, with over 50 books to his name and 4 bestsellers, including a #1 New York Times bestseller. His more recent 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 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 has also produced over a dozen films with friend and actor Jsu Garcia, including three feature films. Their first feature Spiritual Warriors, released in 2007 was inspired by John-Roger’s bestselling book, Spiritual Warrior: The Art of Spiritual Living and screened in over twenty-five countries, and officially selected for various film festivals.  In 2011 John-Roger and Jsu Garcia co-produced, co-wrote and co-directed The Wayshower, starring Oscar Nominees Eric Roberts and Sally Kirkland, which also inspired the recent book by John-Roger of the same name.  And most recently Mystical Traveler – The Life & Times of Dr. John-Roger is the feature length documentary of John-Roger’s life, co-produced and co-directed by John-Roger and Jsu Garcia, released in 2014 and currently screening around the world and in film festivals.  You can find John-Roger’s films on both Amazon and iTunes.

In all that he does, John-Roger, DSS 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, others, and God—and encouragement for each person to discover that loving within, for that is where God also dwells.
