Welcome to the Lightning Path
The Lightning Path (LP) is a school of human development, health, and well-being designed to help you HEAL from damage caused by your experiences of Toxic Socialization so that you can align, awaken, and CONNECT more fully to the powerful Consciousness that resides within you.
The LP utilizes a multidisciplinary, multi-perspective approach to healing and connection. We draw on psychology, sociology, neuroscience, and medicine to provide a solid grounding in available research. We also draw on different perspectives (i.e., personal experiences, Indigenous ways of thinking, philosophy, mystical experience, etc.) to understand the human developmental process and how we can all grow into healthy and fully connected human beings.
The LP views Authentic Spirituality as an essential component of healing, growth, and connection. The LP does not endorse any specific religion or spirituality, although we recognize there is truth in all systems, even the most corrupt. Rather, the LP sees spirituality as an essential component of human development which we need to research and understand.
When it comes to human spirituality, the LP does have one rule. Any kind of spiritual system can NEVER justify oppression or violence towards oneself, other humans, or any other living beings period. As soon as a religion or spirituality starts to endorse violence, including the violence of punishment, judgment, and damnation, it is no longer an acceptable/authentic path of development.
Basic LP concepts are provided in four LP Workbooks, available for free by clicking the links below. Concepts are expanded, linked together, and grounded in the scholarly literature in the SpiritWiki. Together, these workbooks and the SpiritWiki provide all the concepts and ideas you need in order to get started and advance far on your healing and connection path.
Start your LP study with Workbook One and move forward from there. Keep in mind, the LP is cumulative. Each workbook helps you “build the foundation” for solid and safe progress forward. Because the LP is cumulative, make sure you understand the concepts and guidance provided in each workbook before moving on to the next. Use your own understanding as a guide. If you are not sure you understand something, re-read the materials. If you want more personalized assistance, consider mentoring and connection coaching.
Finally, take your time. This is not a race. You should understand the concepts provided in each workbook before moving on.
You can learn more about the philosophical, ethical, and conceptual foundations of the LP by visiting our “What we believe” page.
