For over 50 years, John-Roger has traveled the world guiding people to find the Spirit within themselves, and teaching how to live a healthy, loving, peaceful and rewarding life.

In 1968, John-Roger founded the nondenominational Church of the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness, through which he has shared the teachings of Soul Transcendence, which is becoming aware of oneself as a Soul and as one with God, not as a theory but as a living reality.

For over 10 years John-Roger led groups of up to 150 people on Peace Awareness Trainings throughout the Middle East. His journeys have taken him to such places as the former USSR, Yugoslavia, China, Israel, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, and throughout Africa, South America, North America, Australia and Europe.

In the late seventies, John-Roger established Network Of Wisdoms (NOW) Productions, which has recorded over 6000 of his seminars, and also produces his national cable TV show, "That Which Is." Besides his own show, John-Roger has appeared on numerous radio and television shows and been a featured guest on "Larry King Live.""

His influence extends into the educational arena, as he is the founder, and now chancellor of the University of Santa Monica (USM). USM offers Master's degrees in Spiritual Psychology. He is the founder and chancellor of Peace Theological Seminary and College of Philosophy (PTS), which offers Master of Spiritual Science (M.S.S.) and Doctor of Spiritual Science (DSS) degrees; PTS headquarters is home to Peace Awareness Labyrinth and Gardens. He is the founder and chairman of the board of Insight Seminars which offers experiential, transformational seminars; he is the founder and first president of the Institute of Individual and World Peace; and he is the founder and spiritual adviser of the Heartfelt Foundation.

John-Roger is a prolific writer, with over 55 books to his name and 4 Bestsellers, including a #1 NY Times Bestseller. John-Roger’s recent books, The Rest of Your Life, Serving & Giving, and Living the Spiritual Principles of Health and Well-Being (all written with Dr. Paul Kaye), his most recent book, The Wayshower and the three volume masterpiece Fulfilling Your Spiritual Promise and many others are available for order online through and are in bookstores nationwide. To keep up with his writing, he founded Mandeville Press, an independent publishing house that publishes books offering a contemporary look at ancient wisdom.

John-Roger has also recently produced two feature films, Spiritual Warriors (2007) and The Wayshower (2012), both co-produced and co-written with student and actor Dr. Jsu Garcia. The Wayshower, also co-directed by John-Roger and Jsu Garcia, is inspired by the book of the same name, and is currently available on iTunes for download. His first feature film, Spiritual Warriors inspired by his book, Spiritual Warrior: The Art of Spiritual Living has screened around the world in 57 cities across 25 countries, and is also available on iTunes for download.

John-Roger and Garcia are currently in post-production on their third feature film, the feature length documentary Mystical Traveler: The Life and Times of John-Roger which is scheduled for release and to tour the film festival circuit in 2013.

John-Roger has also recently released audio book versions for Living the Spiritual Principles of Health and Well-Being and Spiritual Warrior, and will release The Way Out Book Audio Book in July 2012. Together with Jsu Garcia, he has also released the widely used The Wayshower iApp for iPhone and iPad.

In all that he does, John-Roger encourages people to check out for themselves the information he presents and, through their own experience, see how it works to bring them more abundance, joy and loving in their lives. He has transformed the lives of many people by educating them in the wisdom of the Spiritual Heart. The common thread throughout all of John-Roger’s work is loving – of self and others, and God – and encouragement for each person to discover that loving within, for that is where God also dwells.
