Higher Consciousness Online 2018
Awakening to a Higher Frequency of Love

A Nine-Month Online Course of Teachings and Practices

February to October 2018


The Love that is seeking to love through us ♥ Eros, intimacy, self-transcendence, unity consciousness ♥ Loving at the edge of the self ♥ Consenting to wholeness, choice and consequence ♥ Healing and initiation through love: a dimensional shift ♥ How we inhibit love ♥ Karmic, ancestral and inherited structures of traumatised love ♥ Returning to love: an evolutionary upgrade ♥ Learning to love the world into being.



Many people are experiencing a powerful movement towards love in their life. This is not a love that corresponds to the ways we may have built or imagined our lives around love before. This is a love that is seeking to love through us, confounding all our categories and preferences, and opening us to a force of life not containable within the person we have identified as ourselves before. This love invites us to awaken to a life and a world that transcends our familiar limitations, embracing wherever protection or defence or lack may once have defined us.

If you have glimpsed or sometimes been gifted this love, or you intuit your life is leading you ever closer toward it, then this new course will provide you with a supportive context and valuable next steps. My own experience is of a frequency of love that is available to us. A frequency which, with practice, we can begin to enact and embody in every single aspect of our life.

To invoke and awaken to higher frequencies of consciousness like this is to invite ongoing transformation on a personal level, throughout your life. To awaken to more consciousness collectively – together with other people in intensified relational spaces – is to invite higher states of realization and a much fuller embodiment of our potential and purpose.

Below here you will find the course content, as well as cost and registration. Down the right-hand side of this page you’ll see feedback from previous courses.

With love, Stephen.


The Key Features of the Course


Twelve two-hour online sessions with me: 24 hours of teachings, demonstrations, small-group exercises, guided inner work, and questions-and-answers. Sessions will be every three weeks between February and October 2018 (see timings below), and there will be suggested assignments to help anchor the material into your everyday life;

A thriving online practice-community composed of previous followers of my work as well as those new here: you’ll be getting to know others and building relationships into your life – exploring assignments with practice-partners in triad formation to engage the higher frequencies together;

An online meeting-page comprising written teachings, dialogue and feedback: where you’ll be encouraged to interact with me and others in our international cohort on a regular basis. We’ll engage our collective intelligence and share experiences of the material; you’ll be exploring key themes and deepening your practice. This will be a private Facebook page for course members only;

An online library of downloadable resources that will build throughout the course, comprising transcriptions of the course sessions, audio-recordings of the sessions, and more;

Additional online calls for women and for men: optionally you may join one of these two practice-groups which will be meeting informally to examine how the material impacts upon us as men and women. These calls will surface personal, interpersonal, and collective issues and themes; they will be hosted by long-term followers of my work and include many committed practitioners from whom you will also learn;

Additional online Q&A sessions: where I feel we may need more space for dialogue than regular sessions allow. In previous courses, these have provided rich opportunities to unpack core themes and explore in more depth how the material is being integrated.

In addition, the Course offers these options

A personal online Frequency Reading with myself or a colleague, where you will have the opportunity to identify and explore next edges in your life or impediments to your embodiment of the higher frequencies. These sessions will last for up to an hour and be bookable in advance at an exclusive course rate (more information below);

Group events where you may join me and others to deepen our work, in Europe or North America: London UK 16-18 February; Kansas City USA 23-25 March; Northern California USA 11-15 April; Victoria, Canada 20-22 April; and finally a whole week with me in the Findhorn community, Scotland 8-14 September. All these are bookable separately and are also listed here.






The course will include the following themes, and others – content will be emergent by design
(see also ‘How the course works‘):


The love that is seeking to love through us

Inviting love into life: claiming and activating higher frequency
From personal love to realizing oneness
Eros, intimacy, self-transcendence, unity consciousness
Loving at the edge of the self

Relational practices and containers

Refining subtle perception, radical presence, the multi-dimensional self in relationship
Consenting to wholeness, choice and consequence
Enlisting support through the subtle realms
Working with the higher functions of humanity

Healing and initiation through love: a dimensional shift

Inner holding environments, how we inhibit love, and the economy of love (scarcity and abundance)
Karmic, ancestral and inherited structures of traumatised love, the wounded man and woman
Surfacing the past, allowing the future to emerge, repatterning through love
Broadening our base, and the feeling function

Returning to love: an evolutionary upgrade

From loving-needs to being-needs – the cosmic embrace
Manifesting higher dimensional realities of love, the shifting ground of life-as-we-know-it
Learning to love the world into being, holding alignment, cohering the heart-centre
Working with other people through frequencies of love.

More generally, all my work integrates these three levels:

Shadow work and healing

You’ll bring light and movement to all those parts of yourself where, from an early age or through other incarnational and karmic experiences, you learned to hold yourself back from a full experience and expression of life;

Higher-order integrative perceptual skills and capacities

You’ll deepen your sensitivity to subtle energies and finer transpersonal impulses, becoming more available to inner states of realization. You’ll raise and stabilize your personal vibration, refining your subtle-perceptual and psychic skills and relational capacities. This will bring more choice and opportunities to you, and you’ll live life more in service to the divinity within;

Personal world-work

As you integrate more unconscious aspects of the personality, you will align more with your purpose at the level of Soul, and will be enabled to host more depth and range of experience at the level of everyday culture. Rather than continuing to recycle your conditioning and karmic imprinting reactively through painful symptoms or crises, you will come to embody more wholeness, which is our next evolutionary step and invitation.




Day and times

The live video sessions will be on Tuesdays at these times in these zones (your own time-zone may be different):

North America West Coast 8 a.m. Pacific Time
North America Midwest 10 a.m. Central Time
North America East Coast 11 a.m. Eastern Time
UK 16h UK time
CENTRAL EUROPE 17h Central European Time

Dates and options

The twelve two-hour sessions are scheduled for these 2018 dates:

27 February, 20 March**, 10 April, 8 May, 29 May, 19 June, 10 July,
7 August, 28 August, 18 September, 9 October, 30 October**.

** In North America, Daylight Saving Time is on March 11 2018 – two weeks earlier than in the UK and Europe, which means that session 2 only – on 20 March – will begin one hour later than the North American times indicated above (the timing of session 2 for Europe and the UK will not be effected). The timing of session 12 – on 30 October, just after Daylight Saving Time ends in Europe and the UK – will also be effected for North America only (by one hour).

There will be several optional calls for men and for women. Some will be scheduled informally as the course advances – at the same time as the regular sessions, and there will be these three pre-scheduled meetings too:

for men: 27 March, 15 May, and 24 July,
for women: 3 April, 15 May, and 31 July.

There will be an optional opening meditation too – on Sunday 25 February, at the same time as the live sessions, two days before the first session (this opening meditation will not be online).

Possible changes

Occasionally I may need to change a scheduled date (to another weekday), or slightly change the start-time. I will provide as much notice as possible, probably several weeks in advance. In previous courses this has happened only once or twice. The additional Q&A sessions may be scheduled for a different weekday than the regular sessions.


For this course we are blessed with a terrific team, which includes (top left): Eva Giedt, who will be providing optional Frequency Readings with me; (top right): Nancy Fabiano, who will be hosting the calls for women; (middle left and right): John McCourt and Scott Ligertwood, who will be co-hosting the calls for men; and (bottom left): Christine Hartmann, who will be providing transcriptions of the course calls. Scott will also be providing technical support on using the Zoom platform and the online library.

About me (bottom right): I’ve been delivering online courses for over four years as part of my coaching and healing practice. I’m based at the Findhorn Community in Scotland, and have worked internationally for over 35 years to help people fulfil their life-potential.

More on my background is here, and on where my work comes from here. For more context on how this work has evolved, see my chapter “Awakening Through We-Space to a Higher Frequency of Life” in Cohering The Integral We Space: Engaging Collective Emergence, Wisdom and Healing in Groups (2016).


No previous experience of my work is required although some prior contact with higher consciousness or spiritual work will be valuable. You should have basic stability in interpersonal situations of some intensity or depth of process. Please do not apply to join if you’ve been diagnosed with any condition that would make continuity or depth of presence difficult for you, or if you’re in need sometimes of urgent support.



You’ll be meeting online with other participants to explore some suggested practices between the sessions, and will be invited to contribute to the group Facebook page by reading and offering occasional questions and comments there (so you will need to have a Facebook profile, with a profile photo).

These two commitments form an integral part of our work and I will proactively support you in both, on behalf of the whole field.



The energetic containers in which we have evolved together form part of the essential ground for this work. How much you’ve invested energetically matters – it is not lost or over. Your contributions continue to unfold; if you choose to nourish this new online container with friends old and new, it will impact upon the vibrational quality of this space and its effect in the world. Similarly, the frequencies in this container will impact upon you through your deepening commitment.

This work requires continuity and depth through those who have reached a place or stage in their development which supports others who may be newer to this work. Please join me and others who continue to expand these containers, as consciousness becomes more embodied through our commitment to a higher bandwidth of life. The choices we are making collectively matter now more than ever before.


Read this especially if you haven’t joined my online work before

This is a continuation of previous courses and you do not need to have participated before in order to join this one.

WORKING WITH FREQUENCY: because we work with frequencies of consciousness, how we relate together as a collective online – in small and large groups, with me and with each other, is as important as the content of the material offered. The material carries or transmits frequency, and reflects a level of consciousness which your own energetic system will respond to at subtle levels, regardless of how much you understand at a mental level;

HOW ENERGY WORKS: your emotional responsiveness counts, which is why there’s a strong emphasis on how we relate together and the relational quality of the whole collective space. The course will nourish this relatedness in various ways, so that your energetic system learns to recognise loving intent and to respond and open – to the frequencies as much as to any content. Higher frequencies touch us in our wholeness. As multidimensional beings, we recognise whenever we’re being addressed inclusively, responding in ways that can surprise us. The frequencies resonate especially with those parts of ourselves which we may have developed less than other aspects, which are still latent or in-potential. Higher intelligence knows what we need in our wholeness, more than we may know at the level of our personality only;

THE LARGER PURPOSE: it’s important to trust your spontaneous or intuitive attraction or call to courses like this, without necessarily understanding why. More people are called to open to and embody higher frequencies of consciousness now on the planet than ever before – on behalf of the whole human collective. If you’re reading this then it’s likely that you are here for this, in this life. Previous courses have also shown that who we meet in this work can be very significant for our lives, extending beyond the duration of the course itself;

YOUR INVOLVEMENT: you’ll be invited to relate to others and respond proactively to the course process and content. The course will be an immersive experience on multiple levels – not a package of material awaiting your consumption! The higher frequencies want your active involvement and will call you to this, especially through your connecting with others. The course will invite you to reflect on yourself and to offer reflection to each other. Thus you’ll be cultivating an interest in the quality of your relational spaces, so that your energetic systems can practice attuning more sensitively to each other, opening and healing where before they may once have needed to close;

NOTHING TO REACH: there’s no place or end-point to reach or finally understand in the course. Wherever you enter, and wherever you arrive upon completion, will be right for you. It’s helpful not to compare yourself to others but rather to let yourself be inspired or awakened by others’ example. You’re not being tested or evaluated but may be challenged or provoked – to the next level of possibility for yourself, and you will be providing this service to others too.



Our live sessions will be hosted on the Zoom online platform, which is free to use.

You’ll need a computer or other large device (not a mobile phone) with a built-in video camera so that you’re visible on the group screen, and will also need a headset with integrated microphone (not the microphone built into your computer or device). You will need a fast reliable Internet connection to optimise connectivity for us all and a quiet, private and uninterrupted space in which to participate in the sessions.

In case you can’t make a session, an audio recording will be available online shortly afterwards.

If you are not yet familiar with the Zoom platform

Zoom is accessible, high quality, and easy to use. It is important you familiarise yourself with the system before our first session – and there will be friendly support available from a real person to help you do this if or whenever you need it, either by phone or email – and then practicing with you on Zoom.


Regular online practice with two other people will form an integral part of the course. You’ll be provided with a pdf ‘Overview of Course Members’ compiled from short descriptions which each participant will submit. You’ll be invited to contact those people with whom you feel drawn, potentially, to practice. Your choices are not binding and you’re encouraged to playfully explore and eventually establish a regular practice space with two other people, whom you will meet online between sessions, for an hour or so. In previous courses, these practice spaces – where participants explore simple assignments – have been places of deepening connectedness and potent learning, and many of them are continuing as an integral part of people’s lives.

For people who already have practice-partners in other contexts:

You are welcome to meet with any other pre-existing practice partners rather than needing to find new ones here. However you may NOT share the recordings nor any written material, posts or transcriptions from this course with people who are not course members, so that the integrity of our space and of other participants’ privacy is maintained. Thank you for honouring this principle.

Alternatively, I encourage you to browse the Overview of Course Members which you’ll be receiving: it will constitute a rich resource for your further practice and deepening, and you’ll find meaningful resonance there with some other individuals, as you discern which levels of practice and experience do complement or even challenge your own. Many people find nourishment in two or three practice-groups, discovering that their daily lives expand to contain these.



In previous courses, the private group-page (on Facebook) has proved immensely powerful, as a place of multi-levelled dialogue, intimacy, and transformative teachings and feedback. I will be posting regularly on this page and inviting you to proactively share comments, questions and ongoing inquiries there. Experience has shown that this considerably leverages the collective intelligence of the whole group and course field, and that such pages constitute valuable repositories and records.


Personal Frequency Readings with either myself or with my colleague Eva Giedt are available as an optional extra from May 2018 onwards. In these sessions, which will last for up to an hour, you’ll have the opportunity to identify and explore next edges in your life, or impediments to your embodiment of the higher frequencies. More information on booking and paying for a Reading will be given to course participants.

Eva works as a psychotherapist and offers online sessions in higher frequencies, mystical principles, and mindfulness psychotherapy. She has worked intensively with Thomas Hübl since 2011, assisting him in the U.S. and online, and has worked closely with me since 2014. She is based in Marin and Monterey, California, and her website is here.


All course features are available as a complete package at a single price, payable in advance in one of these three currencies :

$ 650 (U.S. Dollars) / £ 445 (Pounds Sterling) / € 520 (Euros).

The cost includes an element to cover international payment-charges and currency conversion costs through PayPal. It does not include optional events nor any personal Readings, which are all bookable separately. The price is subject to exchange-rate fluctuations and may change slightly on this page before the course begins, up until your place on the course is confirmed and payment requested.

I am committed to making my work as affordable and as accessible as possible. If you feel a strong calling to join us and are under some financial hardship then write to me explaining your circumstances and suggest an amount which may be possible for you to pay.



Admission is by application to ensure a coherent higher consciousness container for everyone, and participation is not guaranteed in advance. Application is simple, involving these steps:

Write some words – around 200-350 is ideal – of your motivation to join the course, including something on:

A: what attracts you or resonates with you here,
B: what you feel you can bring to the course,
C: your background in spiritual, consciousness or healing work, and anything else about yourself that you’d like to share with others,
D: any qualities or experience you would be looking for in possible practice-partners, including your availability for practice together.
You don’t have to describe these 3 or 4 aspects separately unless that’s helpful to you.

Email your description to: [email protected], including also:

E: your full name, your age, and your full postal address, confirming you have a Facebook profile, and finally:
F: indicate if you have no experience yet with the Zoom system.

If you are accepted onto the course then an edited version of your written description will be used in the Overview of Course Members, which everyone on the course will be reading. Your postal address will not be used nor shown in the Overview (only your nearest city/town and country, your age, and your email address). If you have not worked with me before and you know someone who has, then you could include her/his name in support of your application.

I will aim to reply to your application within 3 weeks of you sending it, with information on how to pay and prepare for our work together. Do not send any money before you receive a reply. Places are limited and will be filled on a first-come basis. Any remaining places may be available until 19 February to allow time for final payments.

“For me, these frequencies support me in ways previously unimaginable. There’s a sense of being drawn in – to new situations and configurations with others, and a feeling of openness and readiness as well as an intense velocity and ease. There is a greater witnessing quality to this Love. The feelings I share with others contain such freshness and Eros. There’s a new boldness about this – as if love itself were daring me to let my heart be primary in all affairs. I’m astonished at the way life is opening for so many of us. Something new is emerging. Love wants us all.”

“Stephen’s work took me into a much deeper awareness of myself through connecting with a higher frequency that I would call love. He invites with his rootedness in love a healing energy that is then even deepened through every participant who connects with it within themselves. This brought us to a very intimate and heart filled space, an energy in which our true essence most likely starts to recognize its true nature and therefore becomes more accessible to us.”

“Working with these frequencies is an evolutionary accelerator, whereby resistant structures can surface and dissolve more easily. The higher knowing can expand our structure and emanate into life – changing everything through an updated relating.”

“You have brought an unfathomable gift of highest love. My understanding of how the unseen is made known into embodiment has been given the greatest boost. The gentle way, the unconditional way, so touching and now imprinted into my being even more.”

“I’m deeply touched by your healing work and the higher intelligence there. I had the feeling of looking into a wide space filled with love.”


“I feel free, unburdened, more expansive, and can breathe, truly, for the first time in this life. Thank you for this work, from the bottom of my heart.”

“Your online course was the deepest and highest online experience and exploration I have ever had. I was very surprised over and over again at the level of the teaching and learning that you were bringing forward – thank you.”

“Your work has enabled me to undergo the most profound change. I’m stunned by your ability to relate to the most subtle things in my presence and thus help me to untangle the deepest patterns.”

“I left the workshop with an expanded sense of self that goes far beyond the personal stories and explanations that I have used to reference my life. I continue to experience an immense sense of wholeness that seems to encompass the entire human experience and so much more.”

“I can’t express how powerful and inspiring this way of working is and how much hope it brings to the healing of the humanity. I appreciated your authentic presence that seemed to draw into the space a warmth and peace that was palpable. I am in awe of how deeply impactful the exercises were and how much I learned about the complexities of our human experience with so little cognitive processing. It feels like such a natural and intuitive expression of truth that once it is seen it seems to just fall into place.”

“I have become a more conscious host of the soul’s energy, and the heart is the center, communicating and receiving the world. I feel deeply touched and am grateful and humbled. Such gratefulness for having been guided to this place, Stephen.”

“I realize how much of this work I tried to do alone and what a different perspective to do it in a field of love and support. How sacred this movement is! Your gentle, precise guiding, and your inviting me into being present into a greater truth. I am not the same person I was before and feel a great thank you from deep places inside. I feel there is so much more, deeper, holding with so much love to include everything.”

“I felt a ceiling in my life open wide after the course with Stephen, a ceiling I didn’t know was there. Its disappearance has allowed me a new kind of access to the vast field of interconnection that seems to be changing everything for me. My relationships with friends, family and clients are all unfolding in beautiful and surprising new directions. I feel that I am leaning into a new movement, something mysterious, evolutionary, and also very intimate and alive.”

“Stephen’s presence, uncompromising clarity, deep compassion and gentle guidance allowed me to inquire into the depths of my personal life-issues and patterns. His work is deeply personal and world-work at the same time; his wisdom and capacity to hold, guide and teach is invaluable and ever more needed. I wrote down: ‘Life will never be the same again’.”

“Gratitude for all you taught me this past year, I feel so very, very different – and have felt shifts in profound ways. My life is truly, radically different and I’m astonished at all that you gave.”

“I experienced Stephen’s online course as a clearly aligned and powerfully vulnerable space of learning to embody deeper collective perspectives and healing. Thank you from my heart.”

“I am so grateful for what I’ve learned here. To have crossed paths with you as a teacher touches my heart greatly. The ripple effect of your work is profoundly felt.”

“Thank you Stephen, more than words can convey. The space seemed to shine with especial beauty. Your work moved and inspired me deeply.”

“My gratitude for these last months in the course – it has brought me a lot and I feel excited at the new territories I’m expanding into. I feel more trust in my subtle sensitivity and am proud to have witnessed such deep clarity, wisdom and vulnerability.”

“A huge thank you Stephen, your ever-deepening presence created and nurtured a container which helped to facilitate the beautiful unfolding of so many souls.”

“I feel very grateful for having been part of the course, for the insights, deepening and refinement that came while walking together. I’m deeply grateful Stephen for your presence and wisdom.”

“Thank you Stephen for putting your love, light and heart into our group and its flourishing.”

“The witnessing presence that developed with committed practice has opened more space in my own body and I’m truly grateful for who and what we’ve been becoming together. Thank you all and thank you Stephen for your generosity.”

“Through continued practice and opening in my triads and sessions with Stephen I’m noticing a flow into the current of Yes and a greater spaciousness. Thank you all for your presence and love – it has been a wonderful Course and I’ve received far more than I ever imagined.”

“Thank you for the exquisite way you lead others and allow the unfolding paradigm of the Beloved to emerge in your work.”

“So much has deepened in my understanding and my being. I have a much greater trust in the somatic and intuitive arisings in me and am more fully surrendered to following the movements of my soul. Thank you – the deepening continues.”

“How grateful I am for all the gifts I have received from you. I feel there is still so much for me to learn – I have been forever changed and deepened by your work.”

“I was struck by how much is being done in this field, yet bringing all the theory and innovation into training formats and living relationships is clearly the cutting edge, and this is where you reside. Thank you for being a pioneer in the integration of consciousness, psychology, and human development. I cannot imagine a more important work.”

“In your work I have found a home for a longing in me to integrate my love for the systemic approach in the depth, wisdom and simplicity of the mystic traditions. Thank you so much for sharing this work and the capacity, competence and love to manifest it and bring it to fruition in others.”

“I want to acknowledge you for the way you are allowing yourself to expand and expand and expand…  the way you keep upping the ante – honoring the shifts and movements in the course to be upgraded again and again. The way you honor and facilitate the emerging alignment with the higher human blueprint. For the ways you continue to allow yourself to ‘come out’ fully into this work, for the ways that you call that out in me and others, I thank you deeply.”

“In my experience of working with Stephen both online and in-person, I’ve been amazed at the way he has brought together awakening to higher levels of consciousness, working with the essential dimension of the soul, and the constellation work. I have never seen anyone integrate those different ways of working in the way that Stephen does and I’ve found that it has helped me access parts of myself that I didn’t know existed before.”

“In your presence I experience a profound level of clarity, humility and integrity. You are in touch with whom you are as a human being and encourage me to be that way too.”

“Each class has been strong, has released energy in me and has brought me to a much wider perception of reality and potential. This potential is manifesting itself through sensations of joy, freedom, strength, love, unity – It feels easy and powerful.”

“I feel such appreciation for the depth and richness of the work we’ve engaged in. A big thank you to Stephen and to all, what an honor to explore emerging capacities in sacred spaces with you. Such expansion, integration, deep discovery!”

“Throughout the course there was this new way of using unanswered questions as portals to things going on in my life. I appreciate the process of holding a question open long enough to allow new gestalts to suddenly emerge – thank you.”

“Riding the wave of all of this learning and sharing, and feeling my life changing for the better. Heartfelt thanks to Stephen and to everyone in the online community.”

“Thanks to each one of you for being here with me, and to dear Stephen for the way you weave the invitation in a way that compels me to enter so willingly the rich field of our togetherness. I’m stretching wider than I ever have – which is both scary and satisfying. A window has opened here…”

“Very touched by the subtlety and depth of this work… what is emerging into consciousness is profound.”

Stephen, thank you for the deep space of invitation that you’ve given me and all of us – for your way of using words to describe these wordless places – and for revealing the place of Soul in such a new and accessible way. I’m feeling profound shifts.”

“One of those courses where you think you know what and why you are doing something – and yet the journey itself and the place arrived surpasses all hopes and expectations.”

“Thanks to Stephen for the masterful and magical way he contained the space and gently nudged me to each deeper layer of possibility.”

“I wanted you to know how profoundly this Course and this community is effecting my life and how incredibly grateful I am for this practice.”

“Stephen has a unique way of crafting deep connection with what’s arising in the field. He is a master of holding safe containers where magic happens, and his presence has added a whole new dimension to my journey. I feel more sensitive to subtle energies and more connected to my own energetic container. I have an expanded sense of who I am and how I show up in the world, and highly recommend Stephen’s work to anyone called to bringing humanity to a place of greater coherence and peace.”
