A Moment of Peace

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 and internet program, 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 advisor of Insight Seminars, which offers experiential, transformational seminars. In addition, he is the founder and spiritual advisor of the Institute for 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. 

"Keep your focus where the eternal security is: the Soul realm, God."

- John-Roger, D.S.S.

The dream state, the night travel on the Spirit side, is a learning experience, a progression of your consciousness into the higher levels of Light. Your freedom lies in the Soul consciousness. Through the dream process, you can learn to recognize and bypass the illusions of the lower levels. 

- John-Roger, D.S.S.

It is possible to live your life in Soul consciousness right now, from the physical to the Soul and back again, co-creating health, wealth, and happiness.

- John-Roger, D.S.S.

When you get to Soul, you can bring into the physical the Soul knowledge of what is, and you can correct the things in life that need correction. You can make your life wonderful and beautiful and joyous. 

- John-Roger, D.S.S.

In creation, God was just one, in one location called the Spirit.

- John-Roger, D.S.S.

You can work with the Light, an essence of Spirit, by calling it in, and if you have been practicing -- doing spiritual exercises and serving -- it will come in to work with you.

- John-Roger, D.S.S.

Don't get in a rut by expecting Spirit to manifest for you the way it did before. Keep discernment present. Keep your awareness moving. 
As long as you keep moving, you've got a good chance of lifting higher. 

- John-Roger, D.S.S.

The master addiction is control. It is not lack of courage that keeps us from moving forward, as most people think; it is the fear of losing control. The Spiritual Warrior can overcome addictions by surrendering control and confronting inner enemies. By embracing them like our own children who are misguided and looking for loving discipline from the one who has control. By being the master of acceptance, cooperation, understanding, empathy and enthusiasm.

- John-Roger, D.S.S.

Rather than seek, the Spiritual Warrior is open to each experience serving a greater good and cooperating with the highest good available.

- John-Roger, D.S.S.
