There’s more to the world than what you see—and more to YOU than who you are.
Deep inside you’ve always felt it… But what do you do about it?
What do you do when you believe in something more—but you can’t believe in any of the options you’ve been given?
Follow your own path? Try not to think about it? Either way, it’s hard to find a place where you belong.
But you might have just found what you’ve been looking for…
Imagine having a community that saw you. That accepted you. That valued contribution over compliance—innovation over institution. That didn’t shame you for being too much and not enough. And stayed with you, even when your dreams and destinations were your own.
Imagine finding a different kind of family…
An unlikely tribe of rebels, misfits and independent thinkers.
That’s what we’re building here.
Open Source Spirituality isn’t about fitting in where you don’t belong. It isn’t about dogma and drama and grandiose bullshit.
It’s about change. It’s about depth, and freedom and authenticity. It’s about taking the things that you care about most—and making them a part of your life.
Rekindle a sense of wonder and possibility.
Modern life may feel shallow and distracted, but the universe is still a magical place. Discover a new way of thinking that will re-enchant your world—without regressing your worldview. (But say goodbye to your sacred cows first….)
Stop struggling with science.
Science and materialism: one is awesome; the other is a pile of centuries old shit that isn’t doing anyone any favors. Do you know the difference? Most people don’t… Here’s a hint: if you’re struggling to find a balance between science and spirituality, you’re going to need a shovel…
Break free of Things-in-Space!
It’s the underlying worldview that science, religion and spirituality all have in common… Don’t quite feel at home with any of them? That’s because you’ve really only been given one choice.
It’s a new era… express yourself!
Spirituality isn’t about being happy and positive all the time—it’s about being authentic. Don’t be afraid to reveal who you really are, and don’t sterilize your passion to fit the spiritual stereotype. In fact, don’t try to be “spiritual” at all… Fuck spiritual. Be you.
Get the Crash Course in Open Source Spirituality.
Open Source Spirituality is going to give you the tools and the confidence to explore as far as you want to go. Enough to journey for a lifetime if you choose. The Crash Course will get you started.
It’s 24 years worth of irreverent insights and unpopular perspectives—boiled down to 7 (fairly controversial) lessons. They might piss you off… (Seriously, your sacred cows are hamburger.) But they’ll also point the way to the things you’ve been longing for.
Don’t sabotage your growth by clinging to the past.
You wouldn’t want a cell phone from the 1970’s… so why would you want a spirituality that’s a hundred times older? The past masters didn’t have all the answers, and we aren’t confined to yesterday’s revelations. Join in the adventure by understanding the gifts that they left us… and then pick up where they left off.
Get the guidance you need… without selling yourself out.
When you follow your own path, sometimes it’s easy to get stuck—or to feel like something is missing. Get the tools and impartial guidance you need to get unstuck. And create a spirituality that is inspiring, transformative and authentic to you.
Sometimes, you don’t have to suffer.
There is no foolproof formula for success… but there are proven paths to misery. Learn from others’ mistakes and avoid misconceptions that lead to feeling frustrated, disillusioned and defeated.
Spirituality is a frontier, not a monument. Explore it!
Traditional spirituality has staked out some interesting landmarks. But they treat it all like a fenced-in tourist attraction… We’re expected to follow the rules, follow the line, and stick to the designated path. Worth a visit… but would you really want to live there? Get out of line—and Explore the world you know is out there!
Membership is Free. And it’s good for life.
You’ll also get access to exclusive content. If you’re the type who always wants to dig a little deeper—who likes to connect the dots—you’re going to love it!
One of the frustrating things about spiritual books is that they rarely have much depth or substance… Sure, the author has some good information to share. But after a few useful insights, they ramble, and fluff, and repeat themselves (over and over) to make the book long enough for print.
That’s not going to happen here.
We’re going to go deep. We’re going to explore ideas that are elegant and expansive—ideas that connect.
That’s what I’m passionate about. It’s the subtle connections that really make things click, and lead to major breakthroughs.
Unfortunately, it’s also the subtle connections that can alienate the new folks… So I decided to make some things only visible to members.
By joining the tribe, you’ll be able to see all the cool connections and advanced commentaries that aren’t available to everyone else.
That way, you can go as far and as deep as you want!
