Tutor: Richard Harvey

The scope of the Sacred Attention vision is specifically to produce, through raising awareness, healing practices, disseminating wisdom and the formation of community, a radical, authentic means to psychological and spiritual enlightenment, a movement toward individual and collective healing. Each individual’s contribution is vital and requires courage and enthusiasm, creative thought and endeavor, motivation and inspiration. Each person’s part in this initiative is invaluable and irreplaceable.

We must step outside the conventional paradigms of the day, both the ones that are obvious and the ones that are hidden. The present phase of the vision is not just the practice of another therapy borne out of western psychology. It is the start of an effort that can have lasting effect and span years and survive our lifetimes, representing a transformative force aligned with others, transforming the world through attending to the soul of the individual in her historical travail, entering life, empowering her to grow through stages of the heart to spiritual maturity, Self-realization and liberation from illusion.


The Sacred Attention Vision consists of 3 modules, 9 video lecture presentations, and a Supporting Document (pdf file) for each of the three modules which includes the course contents, introduction, course summary, notes and references, exercises, and a full bibliography with notes and guidance.
