My name is Stephen D'Amico and I'm the founder and spiritual leader of this group. I started GAIA back in 2007. Although it has gone through several changes since then, it has always remained a platform for my teaching work.
Currently, my focus here at GAIA is facilitating group explorations into the mysteries of being as a way to raise the consciousness of ourselves and the planet. Engaging in social action and charity is also part of the work we do.
Here's a bit more about my background and an invitation to join us:
At age 22, I went through a profound spiritual transformation that culminated in a permanent realization of my true nature. Since then my life has been devoted to understanding the spiritual path from an evolutionary perspective, and helping others reconnect with their true nature in order to help bring about a global awakening in human consciousness.
The main way I do this is through the direct transmission of the enlightened state of being, which connects others with their own true nature. This being-to-being transmission is a silent teaching.
When I do speak, what I teach does not come from any theory, belief system, or body of knowledge gathered from other sources. Different teachers and teachings have helped me to integrate my experiences and develop a better understanding of them. But what I share primarily comes from what I've seen and felt or sensed, in one way or another, through my own inner and outer journey in life.
If the opportunity to connect with this group resonates with you, then I encourage you to become a member and join us at our next monthly gathering.
