The Peace Theological Seminary & College of Philosophy (PTS) was founded by Dr. John-Roger in 1977 for the purpose of Learning the Lessons of the Physical and Spiritual Worlds.

To fulfill this purpose, PTS offers a wide array of classes, workshops, and retreats; we  also offer Master and Doctorate level programs. All of our programs are designed to assist our students in learning and practicing Soul Transcendence which is a process that activates our awareness of a presence (which we call the soul) within ourselves that can transcend negativities (hurts, anger, despair, etc.) and allows us to live our lives from a higher perspective, capable of greater kindness, compassion, understanding and love.

The foundation and thread that runs through all PTS courses is spiritual science, which is the practice of awareness of what is happening both inside and outside ourselves, observation of our own reality, the interactions between ourselves and others, and the ability to design protocols and methods to experience greater loving, peace and grace in our personal and work relationships. Another thread that is foundational in our course design is “Loving”, which is a key quality of the Soul.

PTS provides a spiritual education to students in the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness (MSIA) and to the general public, in order to enhance their awareness of Spirit, regardless of race, creed, color, gender, age, religion, nationality, or circumstance. PTS serves individuals and communities locally and globally. Our events are offered in various formats (in person, online, hybrid, self-pace, email, etc.) across the United States, Europe, Canada, South America, Australia, Africa and Asia.

We presume that the practice of soul transcendence brings awareness to the Soul within you. Experiencing your TRUE SELF in your daily life, everyday encounters, relationships, work  and all the other expressions of your life, allow for true fulfillment on this and higher levels. And there is more …
