Description:

This workshop will have as its focus the text of my latest book, Basic Spiritual Principles. The idea of this book and workshop, as encompassed in the title, is to present in simple and straightforward terms some basic principles related to spirituality and spiritual processes and revelations without getting too complex, involved or abstruse. It provides a framework to help address life’s essential existential questions: Why am I here? Where did I come from? How did I get here? How did ‘here’ get here? Where am I going? What is the purpose of my life? What is life and this thing we call existence? What is it all about? Please note that it doesn’t claim to answer these questions, it only claims to provide a framework, a perspective, an orientation that may be helpful in addressing these questions. The “answers” are a matter for individual self-discovery.

In addition, we will examine an analysis of the opening sentences of Genesis within this framework. Perhaps Genesis is not just a description of the workings of the external universe, but also of the internal universe that exists within each of us. Genesis like you’ve never seen it before!

Included in the class fee is a copy of my new book, Basic Spiritual Principles.

DIMENSIONS: Navigating the Spiritual Spectrum

Grounded in the traditions of Torah and Veda, Steven J. Gold takes us on an oceanic tour of the depth and breadth of spiritual consciousness. Sharing personal stories and insights into various traditional scriptures as examples, he urges us to adopt a spiritual worldview, to “ponder infinity, awake and arise,” to “find your inspiration and follow it.”


“The chapters…are records of what happens when Steve’s right mind, and heart, are given full freedom to wander where they wish. As discoveries and correlations are made, his well-trained left mind and sharp wit give his observations shape and form…” – Brother Shankara, Resident Minister, Vedanta Center of Atlanta


“Universal Ice Cream: Dive deep into Steve’s wonderful book to help find your favorite flavor on the Spiritual Spectrum.” – Rabbi Mitch Cohen, Spiritual Leader, Congregation Shalom B’Harim, Dahlonega, GA

“Steven J. Gold’s Dimensions is an exploration of spirituality from the inside out. If you are looking for a guide through the pathless land of truth, read this book.” – Rabbi Rami Shapiro, author of The World Wisdom Bible
