Peace Theological Seminary & College of Philosophy




"For those seeking Spirit, all knowledge is accessible. In order to become available to the information awaiting you, you need to keep open the doors to your awareness. PTS offers the keys. If you wish access to eternal knowledge, you must put your mind, body, and, most of all, your heart on the line. The next step is up to you."
-John-Roger, DSS, Founder of PTS

Welcome to Peace Theological Seminary & College of Philosophy. Also called PTS, we provide spiritual education to students in the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness (MSIA) and to the general public in order to enhance their awareness of Spirit, regardless of race, creed, color, gender, age, religion, nationality, or circumstance.

Founded in 1977 by Dr. John-Roger, PTS is a non-denominational, educational seminary that teaches practical spirituality in our changing world. PTS maintains that our primary relationship is with our own Soul. The purpose of PTS is to facilitate learning the lessons of the physical and spiritual worlds. We maintain that our primary relationship is with our own Soul and we provide educational opportunities that support students in becoming more aware of the Divine in themselves.

Our headquarters and administrative offices are located in Los Angeles, California, and PTS serves individuals and communities both locally and globally. Our Events are offered across the United States, Canada, Latin America, Australia, Europe, Africa and Asia.

In addition, PTS offers Masters and Doctor of Spiritual Science programs. As participants in these classes, you have the opportunity to rediscover your true nature. Communities, as well as individuals, benefit from such programs since you have the opportunity to gain a greater understanding, acceptance, and loving of yourself and others and then extend the joy into your environment. Knowing yourself as your Soul is true fulfillment.

We invite you to join with us in expanding your consciousness, enhancing your understanding, strengthening your spiritual awareness, embracing your loving, and allowing grace to lead the way. Browse through our catalog and acquaint yourself with what PTS has to offer. The Seminary staff is here to support you in your process of spiritual unfoldment. May you be blessed on your journey.
