"The fundamental tenet of your beliefs is that the essence of each human being is his spirit or soul, which has an existence apart from the physical body and lives before the birth and after the death of the physical body. The human soul is inherently wise and gentle and will provide proper guidance for behavior in the physical world if the person is sufficiently self-aware to understand his soul's instructions. You believe that at one time all human spirits were united as a single, whole spirit. This united spiritual entity constituted the "One-Self Aware," the ultimate Supreme Being. Through time the One-Self Aware divided into its constituent elements and thus created the many human spirits that now exist. Because all human spirits were thus created from the same spiritual being, they are in essence the same."
–from a letter from the IRS approving our non-profit status in 1976

About Frank Moore

From Wikipedia:

“Frank James Moore (June 25, 1946 – October 14, 2013) was an American performance artist, shaman, poet, essayist, painter, musician and Internet/television personality who experimented in art, performance, ritual, and shamanistic teaching since the late 1960s.

Moore was born with cerebral palsy, could not walk or talk, and communicated using a laser-pointer and a board of letters, numbers, and commonly used words. Using his pointer, he wrote books, directed plays, directed, acted in and edited films, and regularly gave poetry readings. Moore played piano, sang in ensemble music jams, and led bands in hard core punk clubs all along the West Coast of the United States until his death. He also produced, and exhibited across the United States and Canada, a large collection of original oil and digital paintings.”
