Partnering with Subtle Worlds II:  Exploring Earth’s Subtle Ecologies with David Spangler

The earth is divided into two halves. One half is physical, the other is not. They are interconnected ecologies which together make up the world as a whole. As incarnate human beings, we have a foot in both. Yet all too often we lack an understanding of the invisible ecosystem that is all around us, much less a way of interacting with it in safe and practical ways.  This 6 week class draws on material from the book ‘Subtle Worlds: an Explorer’s Field Guide” and David’s 60 years of experience with the Subtle worlds.

Subtle Worlds

September 6- October 17th.

This online class develops your understanding of this ecological understanding further and focuses on engaging with subtle beings and forming collaborative partnerships, as well as the purpose for such alliances. It includes exercises to provide practical application of the principles that are discussed. Topics include:


  • The Sovereignty Factor
  • Subtle Allies
  • Alliance Space
  • Serving Gaia:  Energy Hygiene and Subtle Activism
