The College of Inner Awareness, Metaphysical and Spiritual Studies


The Educational Division of New Awareness Ministries, Inc.
The Leader in Esoteric Education since 1986

A message from the President

Humanity is evolving its consciousness into an awareness of itself. People are beginning to take a good look at
themselves, and are searching for meaning and purpose in their lives. Individuals are beginning to recognize
their divine nature, and are looking within to find answers and to commune with a personal, indwelling God(dess).

No one organization or person is leading the movement, or transition, but rather various individuals and groups
are mobilizing to address the needs of individual seekers. The commonality among all metaphysical teachings
is that they are addressing the human beings ability to discover, or experience, the Truth for themselves. These
new teachings are directing the responsibility for self-awareness back on the individual; the power of realization
is being acknowledged within humanity.

Many of these teachings may seem far-fetched, but the changes that have occurred in society because of these
teachings can be easily seen. Not only has the so-called New Age prompted questioning and personal
investigation of the Truth, but many of us who had either developed apathy or disillusionment in our spiritual lives
are now enthusiastically exploring our spirituality again. More than anything else, these new teachings are a
catalyst for change, especially in religious/spiritual thinking.

*The Law of Readiness

When the student is ready, the Teacher will come. No matter how good a reputation a metaphysical or esoteric
organization has, its only value to you is when the subjects or activities mean something to you, at that given
time. This has nothing to do with the competence or incompetence of the organization or teacher. *Courtesy of
Dr. June G. Bletzer, Encyclopedic Psychic Dictionary.

The student is now ready Welcome to the fascinating world of


The College of Inner Awareness, Metaphysical and Spiritual Studies
It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to an educational experience that will engage you in a challenging,
exciting, and stimulating learning environment. Our faculty and staff are here to offer encouragement and support
as you prepare to learn the Universal Laws that govern life and reveal your oneness with the Infinite so that you
may more abundantly accept the greatness of spreading your light and love, thereby changing your world.

We are forever grateful to the founder, Rev. Dr. Paul F. Daniele, for his love and dedication in creating The
College of Inner Awareness, Metaphysical and Spiritual Studies, New Awareness Ministries and The Temple of
Light. It is only through his desire to encourage people to search for their spirituality that these organizations
were born. The time and effort Dr. Paul put into manifesting the courses, workshops, sermons and services
remains the pillar of our center.

Yours in the Spirit of Love and Light,

Overview mountain.

The word "metaphysics" comes to us from Ancient Greece meta,


meaning higher beyond earth physics or invisible physics.
Metaphysics is referred to as a branch of philosophy that deals with
First Cause and the Nature of Being. Students studying this
advanced knowledge of evolution should not accept its teachings
unless a compatible feeling accompanies it. Metaphysics is not
meant to be studied strictly as an intellectual pursuit. A student of
metaphysics does not attempt to solve all questions materially.
They are taught to accept that which happens obviously, even
when no scientific explanation can account for it. It is taught as a
branch of philosophy in many academic colleges and universities
today as "Speculative Philosophy."

Metaphysics is synonymous with the Greek word Pantheism (pan


meaning all). Pantheism is the doctrine that the sum total of
everything that exists; all things, animate and inanimate, including
the earth and humans are manifestations of God(dess); suffering,
evil, and change are aspects of God(dess) as much as the ultimate
good in everything.

The word "metaphysics" has become a description of many fields


of interest such as: philosophy, religion, spirituality,
parapsychology, mysticism, yoga, ESP, dreams, Jungian
psychology, astrology, meditation, self-help studies, positive
thinking, holistic healing, life after death, reincarnation, etc. The
common denominator of these and other comparable subjects
deals with an exploration of Reality, and how this knowledge may

Many who have inquired about a metaphysical career, while


communicating to us their enthusiasm and desire to enroll in the
CIAMSS education programs, have at the same time expressed
their uncertainty as to what they wish to do after graduation. Do not
limit yourself. There are many opportunities in the field of
metaphysics; remain open to all of them, including the possibility of
heading your own CIAMSS Charter. Opening a CIAMSS Charter
can be as small as a study group in your own home or as large as
a Spiritual center.

Many students from around the world, have enrolled in CIAMSS for
the knowledge factor alone. They have no intention of becoming a
practitioner. We welcome all students, degree or non-degree,
certification or personal growth. Whether you are studying for a
metaphysical vocation or just for the knowledge that may be
acquired, you will enjoy the improvement you will realize in your life
as a result of your studies and a metaphysical lifestyle.

Whatever your motivation for studying with CIAMSS, you may be


assured that the quality and nature of the studies covered in our
education programs can make a dramatic improvement in your life.
A metaphysical lifestyle can bring forth your inner potential for
successful living from the practical standpoint in matters of love,
romance, marriage, income, career, inner confidence, peace of
mind, creativity to the growth and expansion of your mind
(inclusive of Higher Consciousness), expanded awareness,
increased intuitive and psychic sensitivity, and self-realization.

students are expected to complete the healing program before

leaders along this line are expected to know the workings of
metaphysical healing, and be able to practice it in connection
with their other work. Many who have natural talent for healing
are unable to secure the best results because they know nothing
of the principles and techniques involved. The Holistic Healing

metaphysical and complementary healing in a comprehensive
way. The principles involved in bringing this power into

the New Age/New Thought philosophy of Inner Spirituality. The

to Inner Spirituality; Your mind
And How It Works Part 1 and 2; Thought and Its Power, Part 1
and 2; The Focus of Attention Part 1 and 2; Why Humanitys
Mind is Creative Part 1, 2, 3 and 4; The Sense of Authority.
