Welcome to the 
Leadership Portal ~
a curated selection of our teachings, practices, and courses related to becoming an awakened leader.

Because the psychospiritual path of The Clarion Way is holographic ~ each part reflecting the whole ~  ALL teachings,  practices, courses, and other materials offered by the Institute can also be applied to 
your leadership.


A leader is someone you choose to follow to a place you wouldn’t go to
by yourself.

  • Soul Lessons of a Leader
    As an Aquarian classroom that embraces soul learning and service, leadership offers an opportunity to learn five soul lessons.
  • The Seed of Leadership
    Through recollection and self-reflection, we can look for the thread of leadership in our lives to see both the compelling forces and the stages of growth we have experienced. When we glean knowledge from our examination of the past, we bring new leadership insights and skills forward into the present. 

  • Dangers and Beneficent Protection 
    This essay from The Awakened Leader explores the very real internal and external dangers of leadership, including negative projections, betrayal, and discouragement, and recognizes that beneficent support is always available from seen and unseen sources ~ in various forms.

  • Becoming a Lightbearer
    Lightbearers are wayshowers, shining their Light into and through the darkness and tumult of this time. How do we take up the role of being a Lightbearer? 
  • Personal Destiny ~ Our Life's Masterpiece
    Destiny emerges one amazing step at a time as precious seeds planted in the present for future sprouting. Discover how your leadership was destined from a young age.


  • The Inner Leader
    The Inner Leader guides leaders in their soul development and supports them in being self-responsible. Experiencing a leadership crisis is often the event that sets leaders upon a spiritual path connecting with their Soul.
  • Radiating Light to All That Is
    As human beings, we each have the capacity to generate and radiate Light. It is our Self-Light that is who we truly are.
  • The Michelangelo Metaphor ~ Leadership as Service
    Just as Michelangelo and the marble spoke and cooperated with one another, leaders and groups speak and cooperate with one another until together they reveal both the sculptor (the leader) and the marble’s (the group’s) perfected potential. 
To lead well
is a soul matter.


  • Purpose ~ Discovering My Life's True Meaning
    Answer the question, “Why am I here?” and find the meaning of your life from a spiritual perspective. In this course, you will discover the seeds of your leadership destiny.
We have an unprecedented opportunity to manifest a new model of leadership
and group life as humanity experiences a cosmic shift into a new way of being.

The lotus is a symbol from
the cover of Susan Trout’s 
The Awakened Leader:
Leadership as a Classroom of the Soul

The sun as light and heart of the universe 
rises like a jewel from the lotus.
The lotus unfolds the potential
of the manifest world.

The Institute views its services as adjuncts to traditional medical and mental health care. As such, Institute courses are not intended to be psychotherapy, medical therapy, or a substitute for either one. Participants and volunteers are required to assume self-responsibility for their wellbeing by seeking, when appropriate, psychological, and medical professional services. As partners in the program in which they are enrolled, participants are asked to set intentions, do assignments, respect Institute communication guidelines, and in all ways participate with self-responsibility for their wellbeing.
