Friday 6-9pm, Saturday 9-6pm, Sunday 9-6pm (open to visitors)
What is true freedom? Where do we find it?
Do you feel stuck with a job or relationship you don’t love? Have you felt trapped in the city that wears on your nerves? Maybe you are aware something is holding you back, but not exactly what.
Freedom begins within. Whether or not you need to lose that job, relationship, or place, you can start experiencing your authentic freedom now.
Spiritual psychology says: “No matter what is happening in your life, you can experience contentment. In fact, your freedom from any kind of disturbance and your contentment is your inherent state of being.” We show you––experientially––how to return and remain anchored in your Soul’s inner peace and core passion. Ironically, when you give up trying to change outer circumstances you feel stuck with, and do your inner work to get free, this is the most likely time your outer circumstances can and do change!
In this seminar, you will learn how to get free from whatever brothers you, physically, emotionally, and mentally. After experiencing our gentle and painless clearing methods, you will feel more free of heavy emotions, negative thoughts, unhealthy behaviors, and have new self liberating tools and skills you can take home and use again and again, until a time comes when you may find yourself immune to all upset and free to live your full potential without reservation.
This course is prerequisite to all other masters courses.
Friday 9-6pm Saturday 9-6pm (open to visitors)
Many people suffer from a lack of energy. They wake up tired or have an energy slump in the afternoon. They may use caffeine, sweets, or nicotine as artificial energy sources and experience the negative side effects.
Lack of life energy in the body is a primary cause of illness. Most people believe you have to ingest something or do some kind of activity to get more energy. In this course you will experience energy gain from eating and breathing better. You will learn how to re-pattern fear based breathing into empowered breathing that raises your body and brain’s oxygen and pH levels.
But the greatest energy source –by far– comes from the core of one’s being, the Soul. You will learn how to access it anytime, rendering yourself immune to disease and experiencing yourself like a Sun, an endless energy generator and amazing warm healing presence. People do not feel this because they have trapped emotions that keep them feeling separate and out-of-body. We will clear the emotions that keep you feeling disconnected and depleted so your Soul can come out and shine.
You will experientially learn how to rebuild your vitality and beautiful radiance with every breath and every step you walk in your life, and how to get the energy benefits of a workout without moving a muscle!
is just now becoming the new health rave as many are suspecting there is much more to health than diet. About 65% of Westerners have a poor breathing habit. The lack of oxygen and associated low body pH are a primary cause of low energy and disease. Pranayama (yogic breathing) is not only taught in the classroom. Students learn how to shift their unconscious fear based breathing habit into natural breathing that gives them endless “relaxed” energy. They learn this natural way of breathing in their walking stride so they can practice it every day and thus permanently re-pattern their breathing from being fear based to empowerment.
Students also learn how to measure the amount of electrical life energy in their body by testing their pH (acid/alkaline balance) and watch it change via doing Light Body Yoga, and later by shifting their consciousness. As body pH consistently rises, health issues often subside and one’s natural energy level greatly improves. PH monitoring is a great way to reduce weight and feel great because the pH test never lies about how well one is managing their life energy. Learning to raise the body’s light quotient via Conscious Breathing is a life changing surprise for many students.
CONSCIOUS BREATHING COACH CERTIFICATION
Students will have the opportunity to become certified Conscious Breathing Coaches.
They receive a frame worthy certificate and logo art for their promotional materials.
Students also learn an easy exercise routine called Light Body Yoga, where one measures their body’s light quotient before and after to verify the results they already feel.
Light Body Yoga
offers a greater awareness and ability to increase and balance life energy through-out one’s body. Rebounding on a mini-trampoline and “Bliss breathing” to inspiring music makes the class fun, and this encourages students to continue for greater long term results, such as reducing weight, and feeling more vitality and calm all the while. Yoga is union of body, mind, and spirit. This amazing union happens more easily in the space of self loving and joyfulness. Much yoga taught today is a forcing and agenda onto the body without a two way communication.
“Real yoga involves self love and the integration of your body, mind, emotions, and your Great Spirit.” Joa Janakoayas.
ENVISION YOUR IDEAL LIFE
We are powerful Creator Beings made in the image of our Creator. Our most effective tool is what we choose to see and believe. Perception is Projection. Whatever you focus on expands. This spiritual principle has been proven in quantum physics experiments. You deserve the life of your conscious creation.
In this course we support you with having the courage to dream BIG! You are a divine gift to our planet loaded with creativity, abundance, and love that deserves to be matched in every way!
Starting from a safe and deep inner space, you will allow your ideal life to be seen and brought into outer form.
In this course, you will attract your ideal body, home, friends, family, loving relationship, career, and finances via visioning mediations, heart mapping, composing a Vision Board, and Conscious Language. Your vision, art, message, and voice will be celebrated as it happens for you naturally. You will leave this class fired up in your in the bones knowing: All your dreams are coming true!
Two weekends: Friday 9-6pm Saturday 9-6pm (open to drop-ins)
You are a unlimited Spiritual Being that can accomplish anything once you are free of the hinderances that have been installed into the human race.
We call our holistic healing work Accelerated Healing because it is not uncommon for clients with substantial physical and emotional pain to have instant results, walking in the door in a lot of pain, and out the door completely pain-free – without it returning.
Students learn how to use the amazing Chakra Oracle and The Art of Surrender ––two methods that get rapid relief for emotional and physical pain. Both techniques plug into the body’s own intelligence to heal itself via kinesiology (muscle testing). Kinesiology is a skill we have found no Student unable to learn and master with practice. Through muscle testing we discover the underlying trapped emotions and other blocks that are the cause of each life issue, and then they are instantly cleared.
We have learned that the average person has hundreds of trapped emotions that block their perfection of health, authentic happiness, and full realization of their potential. Some of these trapped emotions were formed around the heart center to protect us from intimacy because intimacy in our childhood was coupled with some kind of pain. We call these particular trapped emotions the “Heart Wall”. After people clear their Heart Wall they are much more available to intimate relationships and discover a greater connection with all people. There are many stories like mine, Joa: “The day I cleared the last emotion of my heart wall, I started dating for the first time in almost 4 years. After three days, I met my soulmate and now wife, Maqua.”
We believe that clearing these pain memories needs to become a regular practice far more important than brushing our teeth because each clearing leaves us noticeably lighter – like dropping sand bags out of a hot air balloon.
ACCELERATED HEALING PRACTITIONER CERTIFICATION
Students who clear at least one blockage in themselves every day for 30 days and clear emotions for 25 people and 3 animals will be eligible to be certified as Accelerated Healing Practitioners.

The final medicine that frees us from our human issues is our Authentic Self. Spiritual Psychology is the study and practice of personal growth via awakening consciousness. It is our roadmap home to our Authentic Self, where freedom from our human issues and infinite Love, Power, and Wisdom resides. Our definition of healing is “Love applied to the hurt”. Spiritual psychology assumes the word Love best describes what the Authentic Self is made of. This great loving we are connects us with our wholeness and the whole Universe. Spiritual psychology demonstrates exactly how the miracle of loving resolves various issues. All of our methods support a natural spiritual awakening for ourselves and our clients.

sexual energy mastery
SEXUAL ENERGY ALIGNMENT
2 DAYS: Friday 9-6pm Saturday 9-6pm (Open to visitors)
Life mastery must include how we manage our sexual energy, but this course is much more than about sex. It is allowing the embodiment of our enlightenment by ridding ourselves of the sexual energy virus. The sexual energy virus is all the ways we unconsciously steal energy from each other. It is why we go out of balance with ourselves and our relationships. It is a virus of consciousness situated in the abdomen that has infected humanity for thousands of years. It is the habitual forgetting of our inner male-female balance and wholeness, and is a core cause of codependence and lack of individual sovereignty. Symptoms include:
- Lack of Energy
- Fogginess of mind
- Distrust of Self
- Lack of boundaries
- Extreme moodiness
- Tendency to argue or blame
- Addiction of all kinds
- Unhealthy sexual encounters
- Feeling wounded from unhealed sexual and physical abuse trauma
- Depression and bipolar tendencies
- Other psychological disturbances
This life changing course includes the learning of an ancient simple technique given to humanity from angels that permanently removes the sexual energy virus and accompanied “singularity consciousness” so one’s natural state of inclusiveness of their masculine and feminine energy can reside in balance and harmony. After this course, students are able to quickly recognize the sexual energy virus operating in the world and be immune to it’s affects for the rest of their days. After the sexual energy virus has been removed via practicing this simple method of self loving for an hour each week, people start having full body energy orgasms that can last for hours. Eventually these energy orgasms can last for days and even reach a permanently enlightened state.
Because our culture has been slanted more toward the masculine energy for thousands of years, additional emphasis will be placed on how to incorporate more of our feminine energy and all of our activities.
“If you desire to free your body of imbalance and feel it as the ecstatic light body it is meant to be, you must be willing to love your body without reservation.”

“Give meaning to life, and in doing so you overcome the passive, indifferent life.” ~Elie Wiesel, holocaust survivor.
After surveying 3,000 people, psychologist Cynthia Kersey discovered 94% had no clue as to their purpose in life—94%!
It’s no wonder… most of our schools have us compromising our real interests and creativity. In order to do what is expected of us, we find jobs that are like “placing our round pegs into square holes.”
In this way, you can wind up like the majority of the American workforce, dissatisfied with your profession. Working mainly for money or status is meaningless and eventually leads to health problems.
Rather than work a job, would you rather profit from your passionate purpose?
For most of us, a meaningful purpose lurks just beneath the surface of conscious awareness and can be discovered rather easily. When our eyes are opened we usually discover our purpose was right under our nose all along!
I began to discover my life mission when I was 17 years old after having a life threatening motorcycle wreck. The doctors said I would be crippled for life. Before the accident I was way out of balance, always in a rush to get happiness in the outer world. After lying in a hospital bed for three very very long months, I found inner harmony and re-entered the world a new man. For the following year everything I did seemed to turn to gold. My grades shot up, I won awards in photography, ceramics, and poetry, and I fell in love with a gorgeous blond who was a professional model. I even started jogging, which I still do today! That year was my first spiritual awakening, as I felt so much gratitude to be alive, I had a wonderful grace around me without knowing why. I later forgot it all, as I got caught-up in my complicated life (and reactive human mind and emotions). It took years for me to piece together my spiritual awakenings and healings throughout my life, and realize this is my gift to others, to help people heal whatever is disconnecting them from their joyful inner presence.
After a person has a spiritual awakening, they become more connected to their Soul’s purpose. Can you feel your inner call?
Now days, more and more people are learning how to turn their inspiration into their career.
Are you wondering what specifically you are being called from within to do?
Would you like your work to be deeply meaningful, like helping people or the planet in some real way?
An excellent way to Discover Your Mission is through your intuition. In this weekend seminar, you will connect with your inner knowing by answering soul searching questions, practicing kinesiology (muscle testing), Tarot Cards, and Balance Coaching. Additional insights are likely to come via Numerology, Astrology, and Human Design, – all in service to discovering what inspiring service you came here to do that uplifts yourself and the planet.
We will also discover ways you may tend to sabotage your forward progress, and clear these patterns out of your body and mind using holistic healing and spiritual psychology skills.
At the end of this amazing weekend you will have a stronger knowing of your life purpose and be fired-up to take action!
4 weeks Friday 9-6pm Saturday 9-6pm (open to drop-ins)
While healers help people release pain, and counselors help people resolve their long standing issues, Life Success Coaches help people manifest their dreams and live a balanced and truly fulfilling life. Everyone is a Creator, but most were raised to believe otherwise, thus the coaching industry has exploded in the last 20 years.
The most successful people in the world get coached. Success coaches of UMS have many additional skills most other coaches don’t have, like clearing the emotional issues that block a person’s forward progress, or their ability to attract their soul mate. The real work that results in outer breakthroughs is inner work, and this is where UMS graduates excel.
Students learn Life Visioning and Manifestation methods, how to empower clients with powerful questions, and how build one’s practice with long term paying clients without trying to sell them. In this class, students also clear any blocks to their increasing prosperity.
LIFE SUCCESS COACHING CERTIFICATION
Students will learn and practice Life Success Coaching with other students with attracting and serving clients before they graduate. After graduation they will undergo a 3 month internship with being coached to fill their practice (or other goal), and coach 5 additional clients, 2 of them for at least 2 months.
Students receive a frame worthy certificate, logo art for their promotional materials, and a free practitioner listing with their picture on it at www.universityofmountshasta.org
On some weekends our classes end with a Shamanic Drum Journey led by Maqua Iqua. Maqua guides students with traveling through dream time to discover their authentic happiness, the underground city of Telos, past and future incarnations, and other themes. Shamanic Drum Journeys catalyze transformation at a profound depth. Some of these journeys will be to an underground Mount Shasta city known as Telos.
