A Spiritual Autobiography - October 28, 2015
Playing time: 90 minutes

A Spiritual Autobiography explores how we Chart a life in narrative form: some beginning, some end, and "auto" of course means you do it. There is another perspective and that is from another, another's view of you and your life. The lecture calls to us to awaken by enlivening the three primary centers of the psycho-physical organism. They are the active-will, the mental-intuitive, and the feeling-heart centers.

Arriving at Truth - October 14, 2015
Playing time: 90 minutes

Arriving at Truth discusses how narrative is the central structure of our mythology, so that we see spiritual practice as seeking; how we see the world about us as an unfolding narrative, a tale of good and bad, and how this is not a spiritual but a relative point of view; how we are indoctrinated and controlled by fear and desire and by society while you cannot control an individual who is free; how the heart requires space and time and how our modern society is anti-heart; how you attach to your personal truth through the act of attention, whereas Truth itself is perpetually present. Finally, Arriving at Truth discusses the fallacy of mysticism or in-turning "spiritual" practices.

Wherefore Art Thou? The God Who Has Forsaken Me Blesses Me Also - September 30, 2015
Playing time: 90 minutes

In this lecture Richard Harvey discusses the stages of divesting yourself of pretend-Gods and the parallel stages of divesting yourself of your pretend-self. In crying out ‘Wherefore art thou?,’ you enter into a process of uncovering, so radical and yet natural in its revelation, that the exhilaration on your journey to liberation becomes intense indeed.

I Am Responsible For Myself / I Am Responsible For You - September 16, 2015
Playing time: 90 minutes

The focus of this lecture is on the question ‘How should I live?’ The answer to the question inevitably involves our relationship to others and that relationship in turn involves our relationship to ourselves. From there all else is possible. The relationship with ourselves, as possibly everyone more or less is beginning to understand, is primary, critical, and, usually for us all, in need of examination and understanding.

Poor or Rich? A Discussion of Vision - September 2, 2015
Playing time: 90 minutes

This lecture responds to such questions as What can we see? How far can we see? How much, how long, and how real? Do we see with only the naked eye or do we see with the inner eye, the eye of spiritual intuition and spiritual knowledge? Do we see through eyes clouded by longing or judgment or prejudice or perfectionism? Or do we see through eyes of accord, of harmony and acceptance, concord and confluence? Can we see without judging, witness without criticizing every day: is this a choice, a need, or our birthright? Do we see a world of richness and beauty, color and texture, mystery and wonder? Or do we see a world, dark gray behind the veil of thought, the fog of concepts and notions?

Resistance to Freedom - August 19, 2015
Playing time: 90 minutes

Resistance to Freedom addresses how to free ourselves from our ego-processes. The lecture begins with a discussion of ‘the essence of life’ and meanders through explorations of the defense of our first nature, learning to survive, and a wonderful metaphor of the ‘six-fold process for preparing olives’ to examine the blossoming of the ego-processes through to divesting ourselves of this illusionary attachment to the ego via the process of forgiveness. The lecture ends with offerings about attachment, surrender, and the end of struggle.

What people are saying about the lectures:

For the benefit of many, Richard Harvey asks us to look at the hard questions of freedom, seeking wisdom and transformation. While he shares his own dramatic inner searching, he stimulates us to do our own inquiry. I recommend Dharma Sky for anyone who is looking for the way through to awakening.” – Domo Geshe Rinpoche, Founder and spiritual director White Conch Dharma Center, Grand Transitions Institute Hospice training, Mandala Matrix research program, director Foundations of Yogic Healing

May you bask in the grace, glory and divinity embedded in these lecture manuscripts. Herein you are offered true blessings and gifts. Unwrap them carefully, with reverence for these sacred teachings. Your true and essential self will resonate and grow in awareness of the sacred being you are. For some, these manuscripts will initiate your transformation and the beginning of a journey to rediscover who you have always been and will forever be—the light of God, the source of existence, the pure love inherent in all of creation.” – Rev. Robert Meagher, Founder and Spiritual Director, Spiritual Guidance

“Richard Harvey's work touches me deeply, profoundly, and lastingly. It inspires my own conscious evolving and guides my counseling practice in a sacred, focused, and respectful way to bring clients to balance, integrated well-being, and heart-opened awareness. I have benefited from his books, his online seminars and articles. Richard is eloquent, inspirational, and brilliant; he offers a healing presence unlike anyone I've ever worked with before. Thank you, Richard, for the wealth of growth opportunities you offer to your students, your clients, and your fans. I am honored to be among them.” – Rev. Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW, Psycho-Spiritual Counsellor, Coach, and Teacher

Dear Richard, To thank you, I would like to borrow some words from Rumi’s poem, ‘The Time has Come’: the time has come/to break all my promises/tear apart all chains/and cast away all advice... as your clarity from your wonderful engaging lectures seminars brought me to this. With love and gratitude.” – Birgit Niehaus, Alternative Practitioner
What people are saying about the lectures:

In The Novena Teachings Richard has given us wonderful tools for deep exploration of ourselves and its importance. Richard’s enormous knowledge and ability to provide us with the smallest and biggest picture of inner work through his lectures is often breathtaking and very revealing. To have met Richard, the opportunity to have worked with him and listen to his lectures, made a deep change to my life and my work with my clients.” – Birgit Niehaus, Alternative Medicine Practitioner

"In this world where the western media promotes pseudo-spirituality because it is HUGE $$$ business, Richard’s Dharma Sky—Three Stages of Awakening, birthing the soul, are Truth, and most welcome for those who are honestly willing to do the fearless self-work required. This heart smiled warmly reading the words pointing clearly to Truth, and a practical way to achieve Self-Realization in this Kali Yuga age dominated by the dark, raging ego. Richard’s soul and divine heart are so obviously available in the context of the writing that one cannot help but be positively affected as Richard’s compassion and Love speaks clearly to the reader’s heart and soul. His teaching is practical and easily comprehensible, but as Richard states, one has to be courageous. So be forewarned, you want warm and fuzzy pseudo-truths, watch Oprah's “Soul Sunday” charade/parade of characters spewing forth non-sense. You want Absolute Truth, this is a modern practical way." – M. Thomas Filippo, Spiritual Counselor and writer/blogger at OnThePathOm

"As with Richard’s books “Your Essential Self” and “The Flight of Consciousness,” I have found the Novena series of lectures absorbing, challenging, inspiring, and enlightening in equal measure. I would thoroughly recommend Richard’s work to anyone wishing to discover and live from their heart." – Oliver Baum, BA (Hons), MTheol, MBACP, MNCH, Integrative Therapist and Practice Director at The Owl Practice

"Richard's discourses help us to understand and reflect on the deep elements that influence everyone's life, the need to connect inwards, to re-centre ourselves, and discuss deep and important elements of emotional life. I particularly felt touched by the “Love” discourse of the Novena Teachings, as I found the illustrations from old spiritual books and the daily-life examples deep and very well explained.

Someone at the beginning of one of the Sashti Poorthi Lectures said, ‘I have no expectation, but I am surprised if something wonderful doesn’t happen.’ It made me smile, because truly we are so lucky to work with Richard. Looking back on the lectures, I have been at times astounded by the truths that Richard’s talks revealed, but at other times, I was most certainly out of my depth, not ready to comprehend the lessons. Even when I wasn’t equipped to understand the lecture, I was buoyed up by it. I had the sense of being nourished by the talks, even if my mind didn’t completely grasp that which I was hearing. Now when I look over my notes, I find many gems that are relevant today and every day, and everything I wrote down makes sense to me, as if I’ve grown into it.” – Tarajia Morrell, actor, writer, and restaurateur

I am so grateful for the heartfelt wisdom Richard so willingly shares to help as I deepen my spiritual journey. His talks are rich with images, insights and knowledge from his own inspirations, challenges and discoveries. He is a sincere and humble mentor. – S.J.

Thank you Richard, for these extraordinary, transcendent lessons. – W.G.

At the end of The Three Stages of Awakening seminar, I was so happy and grateful to you for making me see so many essential truths about life and me. I felt overwhelmed by the sacred wisdom I had the opportunity to witness. My mind was shaking, my voice was trembling... you made me see the problem in a different light. From everything you say to us, I can see the stage where you are now, witness your spiritual evolution and feel the manifestation of the divine through your sacred way of being. Thank you from all my heart! Your words brought joy to my heart. I could see consciousness, awareness, love and freedom in a different light and most important, the relations between them. It was like the journey of 1000 years! I am grateful beyond words!" – Florin Buzatu, Psy D, psychology student

The Panchavati Online Discourses
What people are saying about the lectures:

​“In this modern time where the material forces of this world are so predominant, it is difficult for the poets of today to find a space in which they can share and exchange their creativity and inspiration. Our modern language, and our use of words, mirror mostly what preoccupies our minds and our hearts. Seldom is it used to mirror our struggle to reach our soul. Richard Harvey, in his writings, gently leads us to that place which is far beyond the material world.” – Leonard Lasalle, Artist

“Dear Richard, Clearly your awareness emanates through your personality, energy and words. Your compassionate understanding allows people to trust you easily, and your manner of expression is easily grasped. So, this is especially wonderful when combined with male 'energy.’ I shall hold your information and writings as a great resource and treasure our connection.” – Wendy Tuttle, Spiritual/Lifeskills Consultant and Owner of Soul Blended Solutions

​“Dearest Richard, As another participant mentioned today, I too am almost speechless at the end of your discourses. I'd like to take the opportunity to express my deepest gratitude. All of your talks are deeply moving and your gift for raising consciousness is breathtaking. The words of profound wisdom you express have resonated with me and reached me in an unimaginable way. They have given me the gift of deep introspection. There is such richness to be gained by having the honor to participate in such a graceful display of heartfelt dialogue. Many Blessings Richard.”  – Louise Leroux, Counselor and Social Worker

​“Richard talks to us from a place where I wish to be. His almost every word resounds inside me, ringing the clarion call of eternal truth. Clear, precise and readily accessible, you cannot fail to be riveted to your ears if you are ready for his message.” – George Worrell, aged spiritual student

“Your psycho-spiritual presentation during the The Heart of Compassion discourse was at the level of great psychologists like Freud, Jung, Rogers, Maslow, or Milton Erickson.” – B.A. 

“I thank you for the sacred wisdom about How the Soul is Born into the World, and I can't wait for the second part!” – R.G.
