What makes a Community?

Three qualities differentiate a community from a group:

  1. Mutual concern: Members of a true community care about each other. In contrast, members of a group share a common interest but not necessarily concern for each other.
  2. Shared values: These define the identity and the ideological boundary of a community. People who do not share these values do not fit in the community.
  3. Structure of progression: A community provides a clear path of growth through roles. At a bare minimum, the three community roles include Visitor, Member, and Leader. Through the progression, people express higher internal growth and correspondingly, higher responsibilities.
    • A visitor may attend events but has no emotional investment in the community.
    • A member is part of the community and is committed to growing with the community.
    • A leader provides value to the community through knowledge and service.

This progression is sometimes described using Inner Rings. The growth is represented by going from outer rings (which represent minimal involvement) to inner rings.


 

Purpose

The core purpose of our community is spiritual growth. We view spirituality in a broader context as a way to manifest Source Energy through a physical incarnation. This manifestation includes well-being and joy.

values

Our community values are:

  1. Oneness: We see ourselves and others as a manifestation of the Source Energy. As part of honoring the Source, we treat ourselves and others with honor and respect.
  2. Growth: Every day, we grow and expand, both as individuals and as a community. This growth includes growing in our wisdom and understanding (Jnana Yoga), and the way we contribute to the creation (Karma Yoga). Growth requires intentionally working on our gifts to make them better.
  3. Service: We use our gifts to contribute to the creation. Service is not a sacrifice but an outpouring of inner joy.

Membership

Are you ready for a leap in consciousness? Membership offers you the critical guidance, tools, and support needed to experience spiritual transformation. Members can expect the following results within a year:

  1. Be at Spiritual peace: Although peace is our natural state, most people do not experience it because of incorrect assumptions about the nature of reality. By working with a model of spirituality that is aligned with Science (rather than religion) you will have access to new ways of thinking and being. This new worldview is rooted in Quantum Mechanics, the science that has given us microprocessors and lasers.
  2. Live a life aligned with your higher purpose: Gain the clarity, confidence, and tools to live a life aligned with your Soul Purpose. According to the research on pre-birth planning, you chose that purpose before agreeing to incarnate in this reality.
  3. Experience higher states of consciousness: True spirituality is about direct experience, not intellectual concepts. You will be initiated into guided meditations that put you in touch with core energies from the Source Field – the Quantum field that underlies all consciousness and matter. These energies transform your core programs (called Samskaras in Sanskrit) that construct your behavior patterns.

Member Resources
Membership gives you access to: 

  • Deeper integration with our teachings through semi-monthly lectures, assignments, feedback, and group sharing.
  • Guidance from Dr. K Narayan in group settings. 
  • Peer support and accountability from fellow members.
  • Customized resources based on your stage of life. Eastern wisdom divides human life into stages, called Ashrams; the underlying idea is that different stages of life need a different understanding and practice of spirituality.
  • Membership is a pathway to leadership opportunities within our community. The organization will provide you the resources and training needed to develop your leadership abilities. 

Membership requirements
Membership is only for seekers who are committed to spiritual growth. Here are the requirements:

  1. Commit to daily spiritual practices:
    • Meditate for 15-30 minutes every day.
    • Study and contemplate for 30-60 minutes every day.
  2. Limit media consumption and passive entertainment to 30 minutes a day. Use the time to pursue purposeful activities, inner growth, and rejuvenation. 
  3. Partake in all meetings offered by the organization in a spirit of fellowship, ready to grow and serve.
  4. Invest your resources – time, attention, and money – to uplift yourself and others, not on consumeristic distractions.
  5. Do not consume meat and intoxicants. They lower your vibration and cause diseases. Watch this documentary for more information.

Code of conduct

Here is the code of conduct that all community members are expected to follow:

  1. Radiate positivity
    Others are here to learn and grow, not to be a garbage bin for your negativity.

    • Don’t condemn, criticize, or complain.

    • Do not gossip. Instead of focusing on other people’s shortcomings, focus on your own. The one person worth improving is yourself.

    • If you cannot say something positive, choose silence.

  2. Respect others 
    We come from the same Source. Disrespecting others is disrespecting yourself.

    • Respect people and their points of view. 

  3. Handle disagreements constructively 

    • Sometimes disagreements have to be just accepted, without needing any further action. 

    • Try to understand the other person’s point of view before forcing your view.

    • If you have to disagree, do so with respect and grace.

  4. Provide feedback with care

    • Do not provide unsolicited feedback. Such feedback is neither appreciated nor acted upon.

    • If you see a need for improvement, channel the feedback up so leadership can resolve issues. Unless specifically requested, do not channel feedback sideways to your peers, or down to those you lead, as it can poison the well.

  5. Stay true to the organization’s mission 

    • Do not lead people to other groups, philosophies, and organizations that do not align with our vision.

  6. Interact from heart, not from ego 
    You are here to learn and grow, not to feed your ego.

    • Do not try to dazzle others with how great you are. 

  7. Use your past as a springboard, not as an anchor
    If you want to move forward, you have to get unstuck from the past. The past does not exist and is a mere phantom created by your memory.

  8. Respect leaders
    It takes a lot of courage to lead, and none to find faults. 

  1. Our organization has a zero-tolerance policy for ideologies aligned with hate and conspiracy theories. These include QAnon, white nationalism, etc.
