Courses for the Soul

The religion of the future…
should be based on a religious sense
arising from the experience of all things,
natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity
—Albert Einstein—

All courses are conducted online via ZOOM, FaceTime, etc after being requested from the client.

Dr. Lundgren synthesizes advanced teachings into practical exercises everyone can incorporate immediately into their daily lives.

The Way of the Soulful Male

Are you a hard, unfeeling male? A soft, emasculated male? Or are you on the path of the soulful male that is in touch with the deep masculine and deep feminine, connected to his soul?


The men’s movement, launched in the 1980’s through the writings and seminars of Robert Bly, John Lee, Gary Zukov, Thomas More, Sam Keen and others, sought to address the problem of masculine identity and centuries of hard male programming.


This course maps out the journey from old male to new male and old female to new female as a way of re-envisioning and re-imagining the role of men in today’s society.
