Michael Barnett


The Road to Enlightenment
which we take
Is also the road to happiness.
Being with the One –
Even when you are not happy –
You are happy.

Being with the One
You are outside duality
So no ups and downs
There where you are in unity.

Just the bubbling joy
At having found your Life
And with it Life Itself.

The One Energy –
We are part of it,
So that can be the Great Healer too.

What a laugh!

Come with
to where the waters whisper
the song of eternity.

− Michael Barnett

Facilitator: Michael Barnett



From Friday evening, October 12 through Sunday afternoon, October 14 the Academy will be hosting the great spiritual teacher Michael Barnett. This is his first teaching visit to the United States since 2001 – only his second visit in 25 years.

Michael Barnett is a master of energy and emptiness. Through his natural gifts plus half a lifetime’s explorations, he has developed a unique form that includes the conveying of transformative energy through eyes, hands and movement, music and dance, deep silence, fun and laughter, and the dynamic of his simple presence. All this creates the ideal conditions for transformation, and invites each individual to fall deeply into the well of their being.

Group fee includes lunches and breaks (Partial scholarships available.)

Fri, Oct 12: 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Sat, Oct 13: 9:30 AM – 6:00 PM
Sun, Oct 14: 9:30 AM – 5:30 PM

“I’m especially moved that The Academy is able to offer this opportunity. Michael’s presence and workshops are a doorway to the deepest silence I know. This cannot be underestimated. It, alone, can be transformative and for many, life changing.”
Aaron Stern, Founder and President of the Academy

“Michael Barnett showed me a world I didn’t even know existed. A place that never changes, where all is still – where all just is. And I can dip my feet into that river of silent beauty whenever I need to, because it’s always there. This discovery has changed my life forever.”
Deepana Anderson

“Michael Barnett is the shaman, the one who nudges, coaxes and tips us into other dimensions. His presence is the main vehicle for change, and to be with him in a seminar is a privilege.”
James Bampfield, Core Faculty member at The Academy
for the Love of Learning

“Michael has been the most important teacher in my life. Through him and his work I have learned to be totally and authentically present with what is.”
Thomas Jaggers

“Michael showed me this unseen world of impersonal sacred energy permeating everything everywhere and he taught me to meet others from that place. His groups seem to be this whole other Sacred World where everything is in slow motion, where your whole personal story disappears, where you feel connected to everybody and where you know in the deepest way that you are home.”
Duija Ros
