Shadow Work - Level One

It is this school’s opinion that many spiritual practitioners of this age get bogged down by intellectualization of spiritual topics. You may discover in your journeys that Spirit is well beyond the grasp of mere intellect. For this reason, we place the developmental stage of knowledge acquisition, terminology, and intellectual cultivation at Level One. We also suggest you do not linger forever at this level. Study each Module until you feel familiar, and then move to the next. Once you have completed all Modules, self-progress to Level Two, where your true training will begin.

To put it another way, this stage matters a great deal now, but will mean little later. Do not over contemplate this.
