John-Roger, DSS

For over 50 years, John-Roger, DSS (Doctor of Spiritual Science), traveled the world, guiding people to find the Spirit within themselves and teaching how to live a healthy, loving, peaceful, and rewarding life. 

In 1971, John-Roger, DSS founded the nondenominational Church of the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness, through which he has shared the teachings of Soul Transcendence, which is becoming aware of oneself as a Soul and as one with God, not as a theory but as a living reality. 

John-Roger, DSS has led groups of up to 150 people on Peace Awareness Trainings throughout the Middle East. His journeys have taken him to such places as the former USSR, Yugoslavia, India, China, Japan, Israel, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and throughout Africa, South America, North America, Australia, and Europe. 

In the late seventies, John-Roger established Network Of Wisdoms (NOW) Productions, which has recorded over 6,000 of his seminars and which also produces his nationally shown cable TV show, That Which Is.  Besides his own show, John-Roger has appeared on numerous radio and television shows and been a featured guest on "Larry King Live." 

His influence extends into the educational arena, as the founder of the University of Santa Monica (USM). 

He is the founder and chancellor of Peace Theological Seminary & College of Philosophy (PTS), which offers master and doctorate degrees in Spiritual Science; PTS headquarters is also home to Peace Awareness Labyrinth & Gardens

He is also the founder of Insight Seminars which offers experiential, transformational personal growth seminars. 

In addition, he is the founder and spiritual advisor of the Institute for Individual and World Peace and of The Heartfelt Foundation

John-Roger is a prolific writer, with over 50 books to his name and 4 bestsellers, including a #1 New York Times bestseller. His more recent books, The Rest of Your LifeServing & Giving, and Living the Spiritual Principles of Health and Well-Being(all written with Dr. Paul Kaye), as well as Fulfilling Your Spiritual Promise and many others, are available for order online through Amazon and are in bookstores nationwide. 

John-Roger has also produced over a dozen films with friend and actor Jsu Garcia, including three feature films, including Mystical Traveler – The Life & Times of Dr. John-Roger, a feature length documentary of John-Roger's life, co-produced and co-directed by John-Roger and Jsu Garcia, released in 2014. 

John-Roger passed from this world in October 2014.  In all that he did, John-Roger, DSS encouraged people to check out for themselves the information he presented and, through their own experience, see how it works to bring them more abundance, joy, and loving in their lives. He has transformed the lives of many people by educating them in the wisdom of the Spiritual Heart. 

The common thread throughout all of John-Roger's work was loving—of self, others, and God—and encouragement for each person to discover that loving within, for that is where God also dwells.
