At Portals we seek to offer great content to inquiring minds, and we also want to nourish and grow a thriving community by creating an ecology of practice for engagement and exchange. Your membership supports that potential.

Throughout history, the great questions have been asked, and great research has been undertaken, always expanding the territory of the known by shining a light into the unknown. Where is that cutting edge today? And can a community of people from all over the world, each carrying their own unique journey of discovery, come together to inquire at the edge of purposeful evolution, through dialogue and interaction? We think it is possible, and we hope that you will choose to be a part of this exploration.

The practice of searing moments is a critical part of a journey to becoming a self-chosen and self-authored life. With a deep contemplative process, each of us has the capacity to rewrite and update the narrative, the story we tell ourselves, about our life’s moments of profound meaning and significance.

In turn, the liberation, the learning and the development potential of rewriting a past experience for us as individuals begins to open up the broader permission of a self-authored life to embody the larger idea of Homo universalis – the universal life, with all its new potential and awareness.

It’s a view of the evolutionary process as not only ascending from the bottom-up, but as a double helix between the visible realms 

the epoch change

of the manifest world and the unseen energetic realms of potential, together with the ascending human realm engaged in a collaborative journey. It’s a framework of thinking that we're actually operating inside of an intelligent universe, one that is caring and loving and compassionate all at the same time, while enabling and facilitating our development and ongoing evolution.

Heaven on Earth sounds utopian and so unattainable, but that's the mind doubting that we could have a much better existence on this planet. And so I'm inviting us to set aside such disbelief and open our hearts, open our whole beings, to the possibility that there has been a fundamental pattern shift.
