Richmond IONS April Meeting Title:
“New Messages from Michael.”
Our Richmond IONS April Meeting, on April 20, will feature a talk and channeling by Caris Turpen, a Fort Worth-based Michael channel.
The Michael Group is a channeled, wisdom teaching soul or spirit group which refers to itself simply as “Michael” and describes itself as a single soul entity comprised of 1,050 soul fragments or essences (only one fragment is required to animate a human being).
Michael was first discovered in 1973 by a group in Oakland trying to contact the spirit of deceased Armenian philosopher G.I Gurdjieff (1866-1949). Michael first became publicly known through Chelsea Quinn Yarbro’s Messages from Michael (1979).
Since then numerous books have appeared about the Michael
teachings, including three more by Yarbro (More Messages from Michael, 1986; Michael’s People, 1988; and Michael for the Millenium, 1997). Several dozen people have become Michael channels.
A Unique Michael Channeling in our April Meeting
Our April guest speaker has been a Michael channel since the mid-1990s and has distinguished herself as one of the best.
For our April program, Caris will undertake something entirely new, never before done in a public setting by a Michael channel or by Michael. During a channeling at IONS’ Earthrise Retreat Center at Petaluma, California, in late 2016, Michael announced it was shifting its focus.
Its focus since it came onto the scene in 1973 was on truth, knowledge, and information. Going forward, it was shifting its focus to love (truth, love and beauty being the three pillars of Michael’s metaphysics) in order to be more congruent with the great shift in human consciousness now taking place.
Despite that announcement two and a half years ago, no channel has as yet brought forth a full expression of Michael’s new focus on love. Caris will open the door for Michael to do exactly that through her for us and all of our relations at our Richmond IONS April meeting.
If you want to have fun, witness something utterly special and unique, and participate in a ground- breaking and history-making exercise, don’t dare miss this program!! See you there!
About Caris Turpen, Our Richmond IONS Presenter:
Caris Turpen has always been a seeker. When she was nineteen, she did EST. At twenty, she moved to Los Angeles to get involved in the film industry, and there she got involved in Scientology. She quickly advanced through the organization and worked alongside founder L. Ron Hubbard at the so-called secret bases in Indio and Hemet.
During that time she saw the structure of the organization begin to drastically change and eventually chose to leave. She returned to her family home in the San Francisco Bay area.
Still searching for answers to Life’s mysteries, in 1980 she was given Messages from Michael, and first glimpsed what it offered in terms of self-discovery and understanding. She continued her work in the film industry, married, divorced, remarried and moved to Texas.
In 1995 she had a profound, nearly obsessive drawback to the Michael teachings. She sought out a Michael channel to learn about her “overleaves” (personality traits chosen for your present lifetime).
Caris soon became aware of her soul agreement to be a Michael channel. She did practice sessions for a year or two, and then launched as a professional public channel, work she undertook for ten years.
During that time, she saw her true work was in bringing through “new” information and contributing to the greater body of informational structure that Michael was then pushing through. She withdrew from public practice and concentrated on new and related information. This work continues today.
