Being an Agent for Change in Humanity

~ A Universal Tributes Course ~


Divine Will works through me as me when I have no attachment to the form of the task and no expectations of outcome.


To acknowledge the inherent gift of the urge to serve and to recognize how attachments to beliefs and the material world distort behavior


  1. To recognize the urge to serve and patterns of service through self-study
  2. To explore attachment in various forms and how it affects the quality of service
  3. To realize the relationship between self-care, urge to serve, and attachments

The Life Force produces a constant and passionate drive toward full expression of each being’s potential. This driving energy is why service is life itself and why we have an urge to serve.


Do you turn the other way when you see someone beckoning for help?  Are you irritated by the inertia, requests or behaviors of those whom you serve?  Are you reaching the burnout point in your present area of service?  Do you feel as though your efforts are not appreciated?

Carefully read and consider the Universal Tributes Courses introductory page.  Ask yourself if now is the time to devote yourself to beginning (or deepening) your spiritual journey using the psychological-spiritual tool of the ten Universal Tributes.

The four-week course for the Universal Tribute SERVICE supports you to care for yourself as a server and to explore the beliefs and expectations you bring to service through the understanding and practice of Tribute Three:  Divine Will works through me as me when I have no attachment to the form of the task and no expectations of outcome. As part of making your decision to enroll, carefully read the course requirements and time commitments listed below.
