Cosolargy® is a word derived from three root meanings: co- for “cosmos” or “cosmic”; solar meaning “sun”; -gy meaning “study of”. Cosolargy in the rudimentary sense is the study of how cosmic spiritual forces interact with the sun.
Explore some of the most frequently asked questions below.
This FAQ’s section is presented in interview format, where responses to frequently asked questions were taken from a panel of Academy graduates and experts in the practice of Cosolargy. Each panelist has shared a personal perspective, while still providing a valid and authoritative view of the The System. The variety of answers will allow you to form a well-rounded perspective of Cosolargy as an art, science, and technology of being.
[BA]: In brief, personal immortality via the regeneration of your spiritual being, expanded awareness and the experience of being more than merely human; the joy of living in harmony with the divine order of the cosmos.
[BK]: Personal benefits can take many forms. Feelings of strong personal connection with the natural environment can occur. Increased mental capacity and focus, and an expansion of intuitive thinking. On the other hand, without discipline and proper controls, the increased energy and imposition of impersonal Intelligence Factors from the sun can cause “spaciness” and “scattered mental processes”. One can balance and increase the energy levels of the color fields or force centers, which then can support and sustain the overall health of the physical body. Through sustained conscious effort, one can discover and strengthen the connection with his or her eternal Light body.
[MM]: The benefits affect a broad spectrum of levels: the physical, emotional, mental, creative, psychic, and spiritual. You can expect that your stronger characteristics will be intensified and your subdued potentials will surface to become more conspicuous.
[TS]: A greater sense of well-being based upon personal experience with higher states of awareness.
[GB]: Initial benefits typically experienced by those practicing the System of Cosolargy include an increase of physical energy, heightened sensitivity and mental alertness, along with expanded states of Consciousness.
[AB]: With the intake of solar energy, you may notice an increased mental awareness, psychic awareness and eventually spiritual awareness. The information you are receiving from the sun will affect all of your physical senses. Some will notice an increase in the sense of smell, taste, or touch. Some will experience a sense of emotional well being. Some become more intuitive. Each individual has different experiences, as this is a system of experience, not dogma or faith.
[BK]: The System can improve your health, but it is not an automatic process. As each of us is unique. An individual becomes aware, through The System, of what he or she should do to provide balanced nutrition and strengthening of his/her color fields; one then must make the conscious effort to implement those things to bring about improvement.
[BA]: The practice of The System restores life and health to one’s spirit, which until then has been dormant; this often has a “trickle down” effect that enhances mental and physical health. Some practitioners experience a positive change in appearance and increased youthfulness as well.
[MM]: I can only tell you, for those of us who have practiced The System over the years, many people say we look 5 to 10 years younger than our actual age.
[TS]: Guidelines are given for a healthy diet, and with the application of solar eye techniques, the physical organism benefits on many levels including added energy.
[MM]: It encourages a person’s ability to be more innovative, thereby expanding the set of solutions that can be applied to practical situations or problems.
[TS]: Greater intelligence and higher states of awareness certainly have practical advantages.
[BK]: For an individual seeking a direct personal communication with the creative powers of the universe, The System offers practical techniques and safeguards, within a community of like-minded and experienced adepts.
[GB]: Greater intake and correct processing of solar energy on the physical levels, with expanded perceptions in the mental and psychic fields, can allow one to do more with less sleep and need for rest. While mental and memory functions are enhanced, most students also notice a lesser craving for food. The human being is fundamentally a “tropical” being reliant upon sunlight for life. Nothing could be more “practical” than re-establishing our natural and vital relationship with the sun.
[AB]: The practical value of Cosolargy is somewhat subjective. It does depend on your level of involvement and understanding of The System. Most people in The System find their mental capacity is increased; they have a sense of well being and are more at peace with themselves and the world. This reduces the stress level of everyday life. Many things seemingly unclear become clear. You develop a deeper sense of understanding of yourself and your world.
[BA]: By participating in a Community of fellow practitioners of the System, the Cosolargist helps create a beneficial, evolutionizing force in the world in collaboration with the Divine Plan to restore the Creation to its original glory.
[MM]: It is safe to say that more and more people are sensing an “emergence” that seems to be accelerating humankind’s potential. Cosolargy® gives you the tools to distinguish and specifically identify elements of this emergence; then it becomes not just a notion, but a reality.
[TS]: The object of The System is to generate a higher state of Consciousness. Once that is achieved, the individual is able to take an active role in aiding the transformation of other individuals and thus the world.
I have already been looking at the sun (on my own). How is Cosolargy different from other simple forms of sun-gazing?
[BA]: Historically, many people have used the intake of sunlight through the eyes as a way to increase well being and even intelligence. Many animals do the same thing. But because humans have a spiritual being as well as a physical and mental being, they can use the inherent intelligence or information carried in sunlight to develop their immortal spiritual selves as well.
Cosolargy includes techniques for using the spiritual information in sunlight to take one beyond the mere increase in physical energy or intelligence that can result from simple sun-gazing. These techniques have been jealously guarded by mystics groups throughout history, but have been repossessed and updated by Cosolargy.
[MM]: You may have already noticed some benefits from you sungazing. There are recent technologies in the fields of computer science, neurology, physics, and medical science that are utilizing light or photons to transmit information as a foundation for creating new viable solutions in those respective fields. We know that light is an effective transporter for information.
So when you are out there looking at the sun, information is encoded in the photons which enter your eyes, impacting millions of neurons, which send these unorganized bits to the optics lobes with the potential to become organized information. If the information is recognizable or discernibly substantial, it then has the potential to be relayed other parts of the brain that assess, share, synthesize, select and store relevant perceptions. The key is that the information must be meaningful in order to carry any real substance for processing; otherwise it is treated as irrelevant.
Consider when we first learned to read. Initially we are introduced to the notion of a written language. Initially it seems nonsense. But over time we learn to distinguish alphabet characters, their attributes, and finally that combinations of these letters ultimately represent thoughts, ideas, symbolic representations of things that are real. Essentially we have learned to decode an encrypted representation of reality. We have become educated in decoding information. Photons carry information. None of these other Sun-gazing groups teach what we teach: “The Language of the Sun.”
[TS]: Cosolargy offers a system that instructs the individual how to deal with cosmic solar forces that impact a person on the spiritual, psychic, and mental levels of their being. Without proper instruction, sun gazing can be harmful.
[GB]: Sun gazing has been taught and practiced among virtually all civilizations on the planet since remote ages. Some teachings have been quite “low,” as in simple sun worship. Others have taught much “higher” systems, as found for example among the original Essene-Christians, the disciples of Buddha, the followers of Akhenaton, etc.
In our time there are several individuals and groups extant teaching the benefits of sun gazing–as many are becoming conscious of changes taking place in the sun and on the planet. Unfortunately, few if any of these offerings recognize the importance of gradual and proper instruction in a “school”; the benefits of proven techniques and/or harmful effects experienced by others over time in a “community” of colleagues; and quite importantly the larger affects such practices may have on the environment, other human beings, and the sun itself.
For more than five decades, our School has been introducing candidates to the System of Cosolargy, helping them reshape and direct their lives to a higher purpose for the good of humankind, the planet, solar system, and cosmos. No other system of sun gazing is comparable, nor spiritually “authorized” during the New Age of Light upon us.
[AB]: Sun gazing is a simple physical exercise, which can have beneficial effects, but it does not give you a deeper insight and understanding. Cosolargy is not sun gazing but a system of that allows you to get in touch with higher realms and to gain a knowledge of higher existences.
[BK]:Cosolargy is the modern realization of spiritual practices developed in ancient solar cultures from time immemorial and presented in the modern era through a proven system and by revelation. Its purpose is the reawakening of the spiritual natures of all on Earth seeking to embrace their true nature as sons and daughters of God. There are many powers, personal and impersonal, which seek to keep men and women from embracing their true nature. The Community, established by revelation and through the discipline of Cosolargy, has been established to offer refuge for those seeking to establish this relationship with God.
[AB]: In Cosolargy we are not merely gazing at or worshipping the sun. The sun is seen as an intermediary between yourself and higher dimensions. It is a system to teach you how to use the pathway of the sun to those higher dimensions. The sun is not an object of adoration, but a tool.
[BA]: Cosolargy is not a form of worship of the sun or even God. It is rather a form of communication, a two-way dialogue with higher dimensions to which the sun is a portal.
[MM]: Just as a person would have respect or gratitude for living things around us, the sun can be viewed as a living thing and so we afford it that same respect or reverence as we would for all life. Life flourishes in this solar system; it is a rare and precious anomaly and at the heart of it is the sun.
[BK]: The sun is a mirror and a gateway. It reflects and amplifies the thoughts and feelings, aspirations and fears of all who live here on Earth. This simple truth is the source of ideas like the Law of Attraction, Karma, “you reap what you sow,” etc. The sun is also the main gateway to impersonal universal energies, powerful beyond human comprehension. As this energy passes into the material world from the Worlds of Light, it is spun to the left or to the right, taking on the force of Logos or Kalos; Logos is that which creates, brings together, and inspires: it is the Word of God; Kalos is that which destroys, separates and breaks down, and depresses what is known as Entropy. In this material world there is a balance between these energies. We Cosolargists seek to tip the balance in favor of the Logos nature through specific techniques and practices, in order to reconnect with the Source, back through the gateway of the Sun of Righteousness.
[TS]: We are using the energy of the sun to generate higher faculties to go beyond the sun to a higher state of being. How this is achieved is taught in The Academy.
[GB]: The “cosmic-solar-logos” Teachings of Light allow one to commune with the rays of the sun in order to raise the energy levels of the physical and psychic fields while “entraining” higher frequencies in the Force Centers and enveloping fields to strengthen Consciousness. The sun is a “gateway,” as it were, to higher dimensional realms where, indeed, there are “entities” that some lower religions and mystery schools “worship.” To the contrary, Cosolargy teaches the individual how to go beyond such phenomena, discover one’s true spiritual self, and commune with the Worlds of Light. Ultimately, one may commune with the “Source,” called in authentic Christianity the “God of Light.”
[MM]: Religion can be viewed as a way of life. Cosolargy opens the doors to a new life.
[AB]: Cosolargy is a scientific system designed to allow the individual to develop his/her own spiritual consciousness. It is a method and a pathway, so as such it is not a popular religion but can lead to great spiritual understandings and truth. If the individual wishes to explore the religious part of The System and study the Teachings, they are free to do but not compelled or forced to do so. With more advanced study and experience, many choose to do so.
[BK]: Cosolargy is a non-denominational religio-scientific teaching, and is not affiliated with one particular religion over another. We have found elements of truth in all the great religions, but also accept that at the present time none of them contains the whole truth.
[BA]: It is actually a way of life. Because it addresses the spiritual realm of being, it is religious and employs techniques and activities that most people associate with religions.
[TS]: We represent a universal religion of Light that teaches us if we apply a proven system of self-development, a person can move to a closer understanding of God.
[GB]: Cosolargy is a religion that may be and is followed by many adepts within The System. However, it is not at all a fundamentalist belief system, nor does one have to subscribe to a particular dogma in order to learn and practice the techniques. Indeed, Cosolargy International has consociates drawn from numerous global faith systems, such as Shintoism, Taoism, Confucianism, Buddhism, Brahmanism, mystical Islam, as well as Christianity and mystical Judaism. It is also taught that no one has to abandon his/her religion, as such, but should strive to understand how Cosolargy may better inform the underpinnings of that established faith or cultural tradition.
Similarly, there are Cosolargists who claim no religious faith whatsoever, but who study The System as perhaps the most scientifically based approach extant in this era of post-Einsteinian physics, alternative psychology, perception studies, and the new “paraphysics.”
[BK]: While most religious organizations base their teachings on ancient, or not so ancient, scripture and dogma or doctrine reportedly passed down from past masters, Cosolargy is a living personal experience uniquely expressed in the daily lives of modern practitioners. The discipline of The System has been developed to protect and nurture the sincere seeker in his/her quest for direct communion with God.
[MM]: We believe that, details aside, when you get to the heart of any religion- the message seems basically the same. Every human being has the potential to exemplify that message. It is something that we all fundamentally share. Cosolargy enhances links which allow us to commune or have communications with the “One” that brought about all existence.
[BA]: Unlike religions as currently known, the practice of Cosolargy is not based on belief and acceptance of dogmas of faith. Its focus is on experience, not belief.
[AB]: Cosolargy is based upon experiences. There are techniques and teachings to help the individual develop their own spirit, but The System is not based on dogma and faith. It is experience based.
[AB]: Cosolargy is scientific at it base. There are scientific facts to The System. The effect of sunlight and Information Factors does affect the whole chemistry of the body and of the mind. These are based on science. It is a system of experience much as science is based on experience and proof. It is also academic in that The System does have a program which helps the user to achieve the desired goals.
[BK]: Cosolargists are spiritual scientists. The doctrines and techniques of Cosolargy are proven daily in the laboratory of our personal experience. An element of The Academy is the study of ancient texts and teachings of many of the world’s great religious traditions. From the ancient Persian teachings of Zoroaster and the Farsi and Sufi schools; the Indian teachings of the Aryans, Jains, Hindu and Buddhists; the Chinese teachings of Confucius and Lao Tzu; Chinese alchemy and the Chinese Buddhist and Nestorian schools; the ancient Egyptian and Jewish traditions, particularly the Essene teachings, which laid the foundations for the multitude of Christian orders, including the Catholic, Orthodox, the so-called Heresies, and diverse Protestant sects; the Greco-Roman mystery schools; the Inca and Mesoamerican solar cultures; the Hawaiian Kahuna and Oceanic traditions; and the various teachings of Islam; each of these varied, ancient and modern traditions contains elements of the universal teaching of the cosmic solar logos. The common threads of each are discerned through study, in conjunction with the unfolding and awakening of our individual spiritual selves through the discipline of Cosolargy.
[BA]: Cosolargy can be viewed as a science and an art because of its understanding of the cosmos as composed ultimately of energy frequencies and its seeking to use and harmonize with those frequencies via experience and experiment.
[MM]: Much of the material students receive is supported by scientific findings and the material is organized in a progressive fashion like any academic study, such as that of physiology, engineering, music, architecture, creative writing, the counseling sciences, and so on. There are principles, models, and elements that students are exposed to, so that in the final analysis all that you have learned becomes an art in the same way that an inventive physician, engineer, artist, teacher, architect, or physicist discovers and reveals new things that can show us a new world.
I have studied, or am familiar with, other teachings, such as yoga, meditation, tai chi, and others. How is Cosolargy different from other practical systems?
[BA]: Cosolargy offers what other systems have lost: techniques for evolving the spiritual being beyond the merely physical and psychic experiences. It restores this capacity to other systems, which it does not oppose, but complements.
[GB]: There are many, many forms of meditation and yoga, and all have certain benefits. Meditation and yoga are physical, mental, and sometimes spiritual practices — disciplines designed to alter consciousness, transform the enveloping fields, ameliorate conditions, and awaken perceptions.
All such approaches derive from extremely remote ages — when most civilizations on the planet were “solar”; that is, cultures that taught and practiced some form of sun gazing, such as the ancient Vedic civilizations of India.
While such practices can be of benefit in and of themselves, the original goal of all these systems was to complement and aid the initiate in his/her unfolding as a “spiritual being of Light.” In other words, if one is communing with the rays of the sun, it is helpful, but not essential, to know “Surya Yoga.” If one has absorbed a great deal of solar energy, “Hatha” or “Vinyasa” may prove useful in “circulating” and “processing” those flows of energy through the force centers, meridians, Bonghan ducts, enveloping fields, etc.
Similarly, certain types of meditation may help the individual discover energy circuits and flows within or learn how to control and work with them. But, in fact, proper sun gazing may also be called a form of “meditation,” but of a much higher order.
In the System of Cosolargy numerous techniques are similar to those found in schools of meditation and yoga. For example, proper intoning (Bija-type mantram) is taught, along with how to use the hands and fingers (mudras), the proper use of breathing (pranayamas), recognition of archetypes (yantras), opening of the heart center (karuna), and various other comparable concepts. However, the System of Cosolargy is far more evolved than techniques generally taught in yoga classes or in meditation groups. The System is also designed for those living in modern society, not necessarily in a commune or retreat.
[MM]: Like the things you have studied, Cosolargy involves a certain amount of discipline. When you practice your yoga, meditation, or art, there is also something else. There is a joy. Like you, I spent years with many different conscious elevating practices near to my heart and to this day I utilize them now and then. They are like desserts on a menu list. Every once in a while it is nice to “put one on the plate.” But none of these compare to Cosolargy. There are no words that can explain the countless episodes of joy that have entered my life since adopting Cosolargy.
[AB]: Cosolargy is a system of experience. The other systems of yoga, meditation, etc. are methods that can help you to enhance the experiences of The System, but they are no complete systems but tools that can be used.
[BK]: The System of Cosolargy allows the practitioner to penetrate to the essence of many traditions and disciplines.
[TS]: The practice of Cosolargy has been applied by many different cultures throughout the world over the ages. When an individual is introduced to The System, after a period of time, they can pick up any scriptural text and see that hidden in the allegory of the text is the same system they are applying today.
[BK]: The Bible is an object of study can be an inspiration for the Cosolargist. With proper interpretation and understanding, many profound truths are contained therein.
[BA]: Although Cosolargy does not base its teachings on any scriptures, it promotes a true understanding of scriptures by giving the practitioner spiritual awareness and reasoning power to understand the true, underlying teachings of scriptures, which are usually cloaked in allegory.
[AB]: Only in so much as the Bible or other scripture from Judaism, Buddhism, et al have elements of Cosolargy but not the complete system. These teachings can be studied to show how at one time this system was a universal system.
MM]: If you have an interest in the Bible or other sacred text, the more and more you practice Cosolargy and go through the course material, you will find that these writings become more alive. You will have insights, discoveries, and introspections that were once hidden. Cosolargy is about developing faculties that allow you to discover those things that are hidden to most.
[GB]: Cosolargy discusses, reviews, publishes, and makes commentary upon ancient scriptures and text fragments from multiple religious traditions, including those of the Bible. Virtually all the ancient cultures were “solar.” Communion with the rays of the sun and expanded experiences in Consciousness allow for insights and understandings of those cryptic writings not accessible to the general scholar or academic. For example, the School of the Prophets at Mount Carmel was established by solar adepts. Jesus/Yeshua and his followers were solar adepts. This tradition had been established long before the Israelites were in Egypt and had absorbed the teachings of Akhenaton.
[GB]: No particular academic background is required.
[BA]: There are no educational prerequisites, but one must have developed one’s intellect enough to understand and practice the Teachings.
[MM]: A lot of people here that have gone through the Academy Series have degrees, a few have doctorates. But there is an element they share, which seems to be more essential when approaching the Academy studies: they have the ability to immerse themselves in a field of interest with exuberance and intensity.
When these people are brought together and share ideas, this characteristic tends to amplify, affecting everyone like a psychological fuel which stimulates the urge to again discover and explore more new things. It seems that education begins with the urge to discover and explore.
[BK]: A sincere desire to understand one’s own spiritual nature is the primary prerequisite. Also a willingness to expend personal effort is required for a student of The Academy to be successful.
[BK]:Yes, however a certain amount of time and effort is required on a consistent basis for the student to make real progress in the System.
[AB]: Many people practice the system while working and living their life. One usually finds The System helps with work and with the family. It is important that the family support your new endeavor as you will experience changes in your being. If the family does not support your efforts, the changes can seem strange and confusing to them.
[BA]: The System is a modern approach geared to people who have a normal involvement in society. One may even continue one’s church affiliations, if so desired.
[TS]: Most all of us have to work. The System is designed to be practiced at your own pace as your schedule permits.
[TS]: You will find as you progress in the System that you will want to share your new thoughts and ideas, which you should; however, the solar techniques are not to be divulged, and you will understand the reasons for this as you advance.
[AB]: Only if the friends and family are interested in what you are doing, and then only minimally. The force with which one is working must be controlled and one must be guided in order not to be overwhelmed. A little education on someone’s part can be a bad thing and lead to wrong assumptions and actions.
[BK]: General information about the Community and the Teachings can be shared. However, specific techniques and trainings are only beneficial to the committed practitioner within the metanoia (protection) of the Community, as a member. Remember that you are working with very powerful impersonal forces and energies, and that outside the Community a person practicing techniques can easily be overpowered by the Kalos (dark) nature of the energy and lose personal control. This is to be avoided at all costs, as more harm than good is always created.
[MM]: When practicing the techniques of Cosolargy, there are precautions and guidelines that help ensure safe and healthy results. Practicing techniques outside these prescribed guidelines can have detrimental effects on a person. It is not wise that you take on this kind of responsibility for another person by revealing information that could bring them injury, be it physical or psychological.
Keep your studies private and guarded. If you have questions or wish to share your experiences, contact a Preceptor. Preceptors have gone through the same program you are going through. Sharing your insights and experiences with them will simply put you in better company.
[BK]: Are you hungry for the Truth? Are you willing to learn? Are you willing to change your thinking? You are qualified.
[SS]: Many are content to live within the parameters that our culture and society have laid out for them. These individuals are fully engaged in the “game of life” that has been imposed upon them from birth by culture, society, and environment. They embrace without question the prevailing interpretations of the world and the limits of our human experience within that world. There are some who feel and believe that human life can be and is much more, that each individual is a unique expression of spiritual creative forces. For some it is thrilling to know that a person can develop an intimate and personal relationship with the Source of creation, often referred to as “God.” All are free to explore and develop the unique nature of his/her being. It is for these individuals that Cosolargy exists. It is within these individuals that the future hope of humanity resides.
[BA]: Taking the initiative to seek further information shows an interest and desire for “something else” in life. Most people don’t have that. Do not let your concern about being prepared stop you.
[MM]: This Teaching is a gift for those whom it can be entrusted to: Do good for yourself and for mankind in general.
[AB]: It is not a matter of being worthy or not. It is an entire life system. If you follow The System, practice it and experience it, you will grow.
[BA]: That depends on you. The System enables dedicated practitioners to access higher levels of consciousness and being. But it will not happen automatically. The journey of enlightenment is ongoing.
[MM]: The whole concept of enlightenment seems to be elusive for most people. Enlightenment is not a location, a state of being, or an accumulation of specific attributes. Rather it is a series of ongoing experiences, realizations, and revelations enhancing our beings in ways that are initially unimaginable. Will you have experiences, realizations, and revelations that are now unimaginable? Many of us do, least when we expect it. Enlightenment is a perpetual unfolding in an ongoing process, expanding our potential to experience and interact on levels that go beyond what we are taught to expect. There are no boundaries.
[BK]: This term is vague at best. The practicing Cosolargist develops special receptors in the eyes and force fields, which allows him to receive and process the seminal Cosmic Solar Logos. This process can bring about an awakening of consciousness of, and a rebirth into, the Worlds of Light; the reconnection with the eternal Light Body. The Cosolargist exists then in two worlds, as an eternal being of Light and as physical being in a material body. This is what Jesus was describing when he stated, “You must be born again”.
[TS]: There are varying degrees of enlightenment. How far you go is up to you and your mastery over what we call “The System.”
[AB]: This is determined by you and your efforts. You can become more aware, more conscious of this world and of other dimensions. Enlightenment is a relative term overused by most systems.
[BA]: On the deepest level, the answer to this is that The Academy prepares you to experience perceptions and the personal transformation of your being to the fullness of one who is eternal, immortal, and ultimately divine; that is, a return to your original Self that you have forgotten and that always was and always will be. On a more mundane level, The Academy prepares you for further studies in the Jamilian University program and life within a community of like-minded people.
[RW]: The Academy program gives the basics of a spiritual practice that can enhance and expand your life. There will be an opportunity to pursue further studies if you wish to do so after completion of the Academy. Remember that The System is not a practice for just individual benefit, but that you are joining a Community that is dedicated to reflecting a spiritual force within the world, and this force benefits the whole world.
[MM]: There are accelerated programs after you have finished the Academy Program. But what it really prepares you for is the added meaning and depth that will come into your life.
[TS]: When you apply The System as given, higher faculties will evolve and you will know your course of direction.
[BA]: This question could be answered with both “Everything” and “Nothing.” The student is not required to give up anything (even membership in their current religious community) to study Cosolargy. Yet as a spiritual way of life, it requires a certain level of commitment. The experience of broadening and transforming one’s identity as a living spiritual entity often results in less-inspiring pursuits falling away of themselves. Rather than approaching the study of Cosolargy from the perspective of “sacrificing” something, the student is encouraged to focus on how Cosolargy can benefit her or his personal spiritual development, as well as helping transform the Cosmos.
[RW]: Cosolargy is a long term commitment to a lifestyle that supports a strong spiritual life. As part of The System you are not required to give things up, but as you proceed you will find there are choices to make that will further your success. How far you go is totally up to you.
[TS]: You don’t have to give up anything, except the time to study The System and, of course, the time required to practice the System.
[MM]: With the pursuit of anything worthwhile, there is investment.
[RW]: The books and intellectual portion of the studies are a minor part of The System. The techniques and practices are the core of The System. The Academy Program takes 24 months because as you follow the practices, there are changes that take place in you, and the material takes on a different level of meaning as a result of the changes. The material provides a guide for following the practices, but each individual is different and will have different experiences and reactions as a result of the energetic changes that take place. Your Preceptor is someone who can assist with questions that come up, and the Community is always available by phone to assist with your questions.
A Preceptor is your personal tutor who guides you through the process of the transition into Cosolargy. Learning The System is more practice than intellectual study, and as such there are changes that take place as you change energetically. Your Preceptor is your guide through this process, as well as your tutor to assist in learning the theory part of the System.
[BA]: A Preceptor is an experienced member of the Cosolargy Community who is assigned to a student as a personal contact who makes him- or herself available on a regularly scheduled basis to answer questions on the study materials and generally assist the student to gain the most benefit from the materials and practices assigned the student. In the beginning one has one’s Preceptor as a guide through the materials, but ultimately, the Information Factors in the Light and the energetic fields created by the Community are trustworthy guides that the student comes to depend on and trust.
The Preceptor will be in contact by phone or in person during a regularly scheduled monthly meeting of around an hour to answer questions the student has regarding that month’s study materials and technique practices. Although a personal relationship between a Preceptor and student may develop over time, the focus during a precepting session should be on the study materials and the student’s understanding of them. If a student desires personal counsel or other support, the preceptor can assist in connecting the student with an appropriate contact either within the Community or outside it.
[MM]: Course materials are sent monthly. You will have an assigned preceptor offering you one on-one-instruction, answering questions you may have, and making suggestions that will guide you through the course to ensure that you get the most from your studies and efforts. Your Preceptor will have practiced Cosolargy for more than twenty years and have years of experience in overseeing students in the program. You and the Preceptor will have a one-on-one personal relationship, unlike most student/teacher situations in an undergraduate college/university program. We have found that this personal attention helps accelerate your understanding and application of The System. It is almost like having a private tutor.
[BA]: Students are recommended to complete a series of residential training courses as part of their studies. This material can only be given in person and is usually offered during the annual Convocation held at the Nevada Center in late summer. Students are also encouraged to visit the Center and Red Rock Sanctuary at any other time as this affords one a deeper sense and experience of the Community and its practices. The experience of practicing Cosolargy with a community of people can often take the student’s individual practice and understanding to a higher level.
[MM]: It is recommended that you do visit the Center from time to time. Oral instruction is reserved for these scheduled occasions. And there is something else: a lot of people find a camaraderie here that is unique and subsequently they eventually relocate here.
[TS]: It may be difficult to get away, but at some point you should visit the Center, if for no other reason than to be with people of like kind. And I should mention: there is a regeneration of being that takes place as a result of coming here.
[RW]: There is material that is only given in Reno, with a face to face interaction with the Community. This is not a requirement, but it is an opportunity. Those participating in the studies are strongly urged to visit the Center in Reno if they can, but we understand that circumstances do not always permit travel.
