UNIVERSAL TRIBUTE TEN: Spiritual Invitation

Remembering I Am Not Alone ~ A Four-Week Course


I accept the reality of the presence of Divine Love within my own mind and invite others to accept that same Love within themselves.

~ Susan S. Trout, PhD Born to Serve
and The Clarion Call


  • This course invites you to deepen your spiritual journey by attending to your inner life and by extending the gifts of your spiritual practice to others.
  • This course offers extensive, one-on-one interaction with a faculty member carefully matched to the needs and personality of the student, including weekly phone meetings and additional email support.


To support you as you learn to recognize and respond to the invitation to go deeper into your inner state and to extend the same invitation to others


      1. To recognize spiritual invitations as they arise in daily life
      2. To practice being attentive to the inner landscape: thoughts, emotions, physical sensations
      3. To take steps to strengthen self-love
      4. To practice extending wellbeing to others

          Naturally, with willingness and without effort, the energy expressed by my inner state
          extends to others my silent invitation to accept Divine Love. I have no expectations about when or if they will accept my offering. ~ Susan S. Trout, PhD, Tribute 10, Tenet 8


          Do you sense that there is more to life than what appears on the surface?  Are you searching for deeper meaning in life?  Would you like to have a tool that helps you see yourself and others through “spiritual eyes?”  Would you like to learn ways to strengthen self-love and to extend that love and sense of wellbeing to others?

          Carefully read and consider the Universal Tributes Course introductory page. Ask yourself if now is the time to devote yourself to beginning (or deepening) your spiritual journey using the psychological-spiritual tool of the Universal Tributes.

          The Tributes are intended to serve as a gentle entry into witnessing and working consciously with your inner state while relating to those in your personal, family, and work life. This course supports the journey into your inner life through exploration of Tribute Ten: I accept the reality of the presence of Divine Love within my own mind and invite others to accept that same Love within themselves. As part of making your decision to enroll, carefully read the program requirements and time commitments listed below.
