About SoulMentors . . .
SoulMentors – An
Emerging Way of Exploring the Possibility of a Spiritual, or
I invite you to ask
yourself this question: Is my religious, spiritual, or
philosophical path in life giving me enough of what I need to
satisfy me with respect to my ultimate questions about the
deeper meanings of life? How about this one: Is there any
way I can explore these questions without somebody trying to
hard-sell me on a particular belief system? Or, Isn’t there a
way I can look for answers without having to join some group
and become a believer – before I get to ask the questions, let
alone get the answers?
SoulMentors.com is a
service-oriented web site for those of us who don’t have all
the answers to the ultimate questions of life, yet who also
don’t want hard-sell answers by those to whom they address
their questions. SoulMentors adopts a counseling model, in
which exploring questions of spirituality and the deeper
meanings of life move us beyond our perceived limitations and
the cultural limitations of religion and science as the
self-appointed gate-keepers to ultimate truth.
SoulMentors is a new, yet
very ancient, way of pursuing personal spiritual growth
outside any particular belief system. It based on your lived
personal experience, so the truths you discover are lived
truths, which become the basis of your wisdom. You do not have
to join any group, answer to any authority nor accept any
doctrine; neither do you have to adapt your behavior or dress
to meet inflexible standards set in ancient times, nor subject
yourself to the judgment of those who would set themselves
apart from you in their standards of holiness.
Religion and science are
not seen as contradictory. SoulMentors does not forsake
religion; it embraces all religion that inspires us,
unfettered, to the deeper realizations that come with
spiritual experience. And it embraces all true scientific
endeavor which openly pursues all mysteries with its methods,
no matter how strange the data, while recognizing the
limitations of scientific methods as not being the boundaries
The SoulMentors approach
asks you to believe nothing, while it invites you to be
“willing to consider.” If we are to find a truth that works
on a personal level for us, the challenge is to keep an open
mind, unblocked by fears and preconceived ideas. It is a path
that truly does require us to walk a razor’s edge, with an
abyss on one side where we can fall into unsupported belief
and an abyss on the other, where we close our minds even to
the degree of refusing to recognize transcendent
evidence in our own lives.
The approach asks us:
• to be willing to consider the possibility that being open
to consider, overcoming our fears and pre-conceptions,
opens the way for us to discover ultimate truths for
• to be
willing to consider the possibility that life is much bigger
than we, or our culture, could perceive or imagine it to be.

willing to consider the possibility that we, our individual
selves, are much more than we, or our culture, perceive or

that we are multidimensional beings, presently occupying a

creative, organizing, intelligent Presence that permeates all
levels of these realities, including our known physical
reality. That unblocking ourselves, by overcoming our fears
and preconceptions, we will discover overwhelming evidence of
willing to consider that the sense of incompleteness we feel
during those quiet moments – that emptiness, that sense of
something missing in our lives, that yearning, comes out of
our lack of conscious connection with the higher dimensional
aspects of who we are, including a lack of awareness of the
all-permeating Presence that sustains us and exists at our
core of being. That most of our pursuits while focused on
material reality lead us away from these discoveries and,
thus, to a deeper sense of separation.

SoulMentors is an emerging approach to
helping persons explore their ultimate questions and spiritual
interests for themselves, without any outside pressures or
expectations that they should join or become a part of any
system of belief. As such, the approach creates a “safe
haven” where issues of religious and spiritual confusion,
suffering, trauma and abuse can be explored in a safe
environment with another person, or persons, identified as
being in a soulmentor role. A soulmentor can be a trusted
peer or helping professional, mutually recognized as being of
equal or more extensive spiritual experience and development,
who accepts and practices the open-exploration,
experience-based principles of the SoulMentors approach.
SoulMentors dispenses with the
authority-based approach to guiding the spiritual development
of others and has no formal affiliation with any religion or
system of belief. Rather, it is based upon a counseling and
human development model which puts the person, or persons,
receiving support and help in the center of the helping
process, along with the totality of their developmental needs.

Imagine if you came to visit a place of deeper learning and
discovered partial displays, unpacked boxes and construction
work everywhere. Imagine that those you meet in that
setting explain that they are so excited to be sharing their
discoveries that enough is available to form an initial
presentation - because there is a world of need for even that
right now. They give you a brief tour of the place, invite
your much-valued feedback on this work-in-progress and
heartily invite you to return, as much as your interests and
needs apply. May this be your experience here on the
