Hello and welcome! My name is Stephen D'Amico and I'm the founder and spiritual director 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, the focus of my work is energetic, but I also provide guidance, offer teachings, and facilitate group explorations into the mysteries of being.
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.
Ultimately, all the information I impart is meant to connect people with the nondual realization that all the forms and forces in creation come from an eternal formless dimension, and that each of us, as an incarnated soul or individual consciousness, is a living embodiment of that formless substance in human form. And more broadly, that it is the divine destiny and evolutionary purpose of humanity to awaken spiritually and live from this level of enlightenment in a permanent way.
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.
