An Opportunity to Reclaim the Sacred Truths at the Core of Your Being and Live from
Your Spiritual Depths
What if you dared what has long been unthinkable in the Christian church, which is to claim Christ consciousness as your birthright?
Imagine the divinity you would experience as well as the capacity for healing, awakening and love that you would activate if you were really able to see and integrate the fullness of the sacred presence within you.
In ancient times, due in part to the political goals of Rome, Jesus became seen as THE Christ rather than an amazing pioneer of the Christ potential within all of us. And that move has created challenges for humanity ever since.
We’ve seen Jesus as the ONLY Christ rather than our elder brother and teacher on a path that we are here to walk into the “annointed” state of spiritual realization that he himself described.
We’ve kept him on a pedestal... and us in a diminished state.
Now it’s time to change all that and reclaim the inherent beauty, power and love that is held in our Christ-infused minds, hearts and bodies.
Awakening the Mystic Christ Within will guide you in this reclamation, which takes you into realms of a direct relationship with the Divine. If you choose to join, you’ll discover an intimate connection with your Christ potential — and begin to manifest it — lovingly, beautifully and playfully.
You’ll find that a joyful lightness begins to perfume your days as you feel more radiantly happy, more present to love, and more awake to the deeper dimensions of life.
Rediscovering the Lightness of the
Traditionally Jesus’s crucifixion has been associated with darkness and death, which has led to glamorizing suffering, pain, and sacrifice. However, the truth is that most of those experiences actually lower our consciousness and disconnect us from our highest Self.
In contrast, modern-mystic Bill Bauman teaches that lightness is in fact the essence of Christ consciousness and that levity is key to awakening this presence within us.
Bill has been on a spiritual path for more than 50 years, evolving from a priest initiated into multiple traditions into a beloved seer, playful mystic and behind-the-scenes guide to many famous authors, teachers, and leaders.
He’s become known as “the teacher’s teacher” because he is often working with some of most advanced beings around.
And now, you have an opportunity for this remarkable teacher to initiate you into the depths and heights of your Christ Consciousness, not just as a brief glimpse but as a new, steady baseline for your life.
The Awakening the Mystic Christ Within is a 7-week program that serves as a spiritual initiation into a higher octave of conscious love. Among thousands of people who’ve worked with Bill, there are many reports of a kind of spontaneous arising of the reverential love presence that infuses his words and teachings.
Just as we may send a text message to another’s phone with no visible means of transmission, so Bill is sending out little energetic transmissions as he speaks, teaches and works individually with people.
More than teach you, Bill will transmit from his heart to yours the sacred fullness of the Christ presence that is within all of us.
He’ll show you that we all are here to serve the creation of heaven on earth — not as a religious exercise but as a living expression of light, love, laughter and authentic humanity.
During each module, Bill will share his teachings and transmission first and then open up the space for spiritual dialogue — which is where the real magic ignites. In working one-on-one with course participants, he helps create a sublime field of grace and blessing that permeates all of our subtle resistances, distortions and fears.
This program will not be an historical exploration of Jesus and his life, nor of the mystics and teachers who followed him.
What it WILL be is a deeply experiential journey into the heart of living AS the Christ now.
Truly. Fully. No holds barred.
A Powerful Initiation into a More Full-Spectrum Christhood
How often have you thought of the Christ within as playful? Mischievous? Even primal or instinctual?
Or have you, like most people, associated the Christ with only the man and the qualities of a serious, self-sacrificing, transcendent being?
According to Bill, these false attributes have prevented the Divine from emerging fully in our bodies, breath and words.
The ultimate Christ is full-spectrum. It encompasses ALL of reality in one pulsing, sacred presence. And so it welcomes us to embrace ALL of ourselves and life and surrender into a sacred dance of reverence, beauty and joy.
As we release false ideas and barriers, we open naturally to the effervescent grace of the Christ presence, which includes an overwhelming, unconditional love, a spirit of blessing and reverence, and the capacity for great wisdom.
We become servants of Spirit, infused with the power to light up a room with our presence and our love and see others in their highest expression.
This embodiment of the Divine is at the heart of the healing that is required in today’s world. Authentic Christ beings change reality from the inside out, and with an infectious joy engage in the great tasks of our day to evolve a new world based on love.
That is the journey of awakening to the Christ within you.
During this journey, you’ll dissolve layers of beliefs and conditioning that have prevented your access to the full You and the creative intelligence of the universe that lives in every cell of your body.
You’ll open new pathways for loving others and yourself. You’ll tunnel through old stories into the radiant joy in your core.
Why We Love Bill So Much
This journey into the heart of Christ depends on a wise and skilled guide, which you have in Bill Bauman, Far from being a Bible-quoting preacher, Bill is a seer of the heart, finding in Jesus a spiritual brother who is calling us into our true divinity AND our ultimate humanity. Bill intuitively sees and embraces the majesty in each one of us, calling it forward with love and praise and the occasional gentle challenge.
Bill is a spiritual teacher to many other spiritual teachers, often working behind the scenes with more “famous” authors helping them to awaken to the full wonder of their being. With a leprechaun-like playfulness, he illuminates life as a great unfolding dance.
What distinguishes this course from others that Bill has taught is that he will dedicate significant time in each class to interacting with you and the other participants — responding to your needs, healing your blocks, expanding your consciousness and awakening your Christ consciousness.
In other words, this program will focus a lot on healing what is in the way of you experiencing the Christ presence within you 24/7.
If you join, you’ll experience a luminous journey that opens your eyes, your heart and your soul to the incredible light and love that IS you...
From the Desk of Bill Bauman
Our beautifully dedicated people at The Shift Network asked me to share with you my unique passion about awakening the mystic Christ within each of us. My heart truly leapt at the invitation to have this brief moment with you, and I heard a giant “yes!” spring from my lips... so here I am!
Many years ago I experienced a dramatic personal awakening into the mystic Christ. In the midst of a great personal despair, the “Christ presence” took unexpected root in my heart and started to become my unwavering center. Over the years, this Christed nature has deepened and become “all of me,” allowing me to enjoy a profoundly intimate relationship with many of our historical “Christs” — Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Krishna and other “avatars” who have graced our human realm with purely divine love and blessings.
As I see and witness it, we are all Christs in the making — you, me and everyone who may feel called to participate in my course that starts soon: Awakening the Mystic Christ Within. You and I already carry the wonder and power of “the Christ” within our human makeup. And I feel personally called to serve your Christhood, and the Christ-hood that we all share, through this inspired course. That’s why I’m here — on earth in general and in this special moment with you.
Many, including myself, believe that it may now be time in our human evolution for the next Christ to take the form of a collective avatar — not just as one divinely sent person as in the past, but as many of us, all sharing and expressing the same mystical Christ nature in uniquely different ways. I am deeply confident that now is the time for that collective avatar to appear. Could you be a part of that divine expression, that joint avatar? Could your awakening into this mystic Christ state be part of your calling? I believe so.
I know that I am fully here to be a part of that collective Christ, and that it’s my role to inspire us to step ever more fully into our true Christ nature. Yes, now that we’ve passed into the long-awaited post-2012 era, this is our time to gather together, so that we can activate and embrace our mystic Christ-ness, then lead our world anew with our love-filled, light-empowered gifts.
I’ve felt an unusually powerful spiritual force inspiring me to offer anew this inspiring 7-week course, Awakening the Mystic Christ Within, to you. I believe that it can lovingly assist you in being more fully enveloped in divine love, in embracing your personal Christ nature and in filling you with the kind of blessings that happen powerfully “when two or more are gathered in my name!”
I ask you then to step tenderly into your all-knowing soul, then ask the question of whether this offering calls to you, listen quietly, and respond accordingly. If you do feel drawn to participate, please know that I, as a gentle and humble mirror of your Christ-filled self, will lead you with the deepest respect for who you are and will support you in ways that are truly loving and empowering.
I can’t help but feel that this is a rare and special moment in our human lives. I see it as the time we’ve been waiting for, a time that embodies the very purpose for which we became human beings — to bless and empower everyone we touch with the divine loving power of the Christ — the very Christ that is now ready to come to life, within us. Thank you so very much.

What Graduates of Bill’s Course are Saying...
This course has helped me to not only accept myself as a Christ but also to begin to look for the Christ in all others. It has allowed me to be myself in a whole new way. Bill put forward the ideas and teachings in a lighthearted yet deep and profound manner. It was magic!
– Maria, Trinidad and Tobago
Bill led me back to a knowing of my true presence and the consciousness of grace. And that it was right, natural and safe to embrace this gift of myself. He taught me through his energy, his love and talks about this sacred place, an inner friend I can always be with that loves me unconditionally, a power, a guidance, a strength, a stability within that is for me, the big me I can safely embrace. To openly, consciously, powerfully connect to and be loyal to who I deeply am is a dream come true. A thank you from the heart to Bill.
– Pauline Evelyn Tsukamoto, Isumi City, Chiba-ken, Japan
It was such an immersion in Divinity that integrated w/ the Earth in us.. Every aspect we can relax and embrace... this is such freedom.
– Nora Yudin, Santa Fe, NM
I was so blessed to be able to take the Awakening the Christ Within course with Bill Bauman. This course really helped me connect more with my Christ self. I have definitely been more upbeat since taking this course... a feeling of being lighter. Thank you so much to everyone who helped make this course with Bill possible!! And thank you to Bill for being the man of truth and light that he is!!
– Gloria Crockett-Longmont, Colorado
Bill’s presence comes right through the computer/phone to touch your heart and soul. This happened to me several times during the 7 sessions. Thanks to the course I notice the Mystic Christ shining in me more and more. When it does, I notice a glow in the people I am relating to. It feels amazing to bring such joy to others.
– Terry Hiduke, Fort Myers, FL
The feeling of not being alone on this journey and the inspiration that we are going into a new era and all the hell I have been through in my life will have some meaning and be of help to the universe. Love to you all.
– Andy, England
During almost every single call I fell into a deep meditative state that was very close to sleep. I heard very little content with my physical mind. However, after each call I felt ’lighter’ and had a growing awareness that is continuing expand of the Christ within. I don’t fully know what I am evolving into yet, but it feels powerful and loving and knowing. Plus, I now have a sense of a mystical Christ community whom I love very dearly and I know loves me too even though we may never meet. Thank you!
– Jill, Portland, OR
Bill is the most fun and loving human being to spend time with AND you learn the important stuff with him ... sort of by osmosis! You can’t help letting him in to work his alchemy. Don’t deny yourself the pleasure of working with him.
– Fiona, Bellingen, Australia
There has been no greater awakening in my Life than to become fully realized in and One with the Christ that I AM. Thank you Bill.
– Robert, Durango CO
To any recovering Catholic school graduate, attention! I cannot recommend this course and Bill Bauman’s presence enough — to bring Christ to life in your heart today- update your old notions of Him.
– Veronique Raskin, San Francisco, CA
A glimpse of, a taste of, the Truth, the Mystic Christ within me coming forth. Simply beautiful filling me with wonder and hope. Bill is dip into a warm inviting pool of love.
– Terri, Delray Beach, FL
I cannot say enough about Bill and his presence. Studying with Bill was the first time I became aware of “transmission” as a style of teaching. It didn’t really matter what Bill was saying or doing. What I got was taking place on a deeper level. I was being transformed, healed, inspired and deeply touched and moved, just from being in his presence. That being said, what Bill has to say is always inspired, enlightened and humorous.
– Debbi Brown, Phoenix, AZ
Bill Bauman is a quiet, profound avatar and huge gift to humanity. He is a master of the moment. I am deeply humbled and grateful for the gracious way that he has gently led me home to my higher self. His loving presence generates consciousness, transformation and compassion. He teaches beyond the level of the mind and provides a thrilling journey into the levels of soul, light, vibration and all the elements. The gift of learning with this masterful teacher is an opportunity not to be missed!
– Angela Mandato, Santa Clara, UT
I can truthfully say that I have never met anyone of any degree of illumination or enlightenment who is as compassionate, integrated and affirmative as Bill. He meets you where you are without compromising who he is and, in the process, you are expanded, uplifted, healed and reconnected with your essential nature.
– Alan Scherr, Faber, VA
Bill has guided me to know all that I am. He is a master full of grace and humor. I am permanently indebted to his love. If you would like to meet and interact with Pure Love, come to one of Bill’s seminars.
– Mark Hanson, Fairfield, IA
On each of Bill’s weekend seminars I have been propelled at lightning speed to the next level of my unfolding. These changes are permanent and continue to unfold.
– Gail Herson, Santa Barbara, CA
Capturing the essence and fullness of Bill Bauman would be like trying to catch Niagara Falls in a bucket. This mild-mannered man is a powerful force. His own “bucket” is big enough to hold a group, no matter how large. He can reach in and touch each of us individually and all of us simultaneously. When he does, he unwraps the mysteries of each soul, reveals and reflects all the beauty and potential within, and gives that back to each of us as a gift. Then he leaves us free to choose how we are going to be with that gift. And he does all this with wit and humor that I find so endearing that it alone would be worth the price of admission.
– Sharon Heller, M.S., Austin, TX
Bill Bauman can be completely relied upon to lead you out of the dark and into the grandest vision, love and abundance one can imagine.
– Rev. Larry James Stevens, San Diego, CA
Bill Bauman is the Ultimate Human! I filled with Joy and Love every time I heard his voice. His voice and his "being-ness" came from within me. That’s how Bill is. He gently enters and transforms you. No matter what the topic, no matter what he says, it’s perfect. Because he IS LOVE. And Love heals. I have never ever felt True Love before in my life and I will always treasure the time I had with Bill in this course. I would take it over again if offered without hesitation. Bill is one magnificent human being you want to spend as much time with as possible because he Truly Loves You and he lets you know it! You cannot hide from Love when you are with Bill.
– Juliann Calvey
Bill Bauman is one of a kind. His background and personal spirituality create a safe haven in which to grow and develop, expand and experience his unique style of storytelling and meditation. Although you go with him into the story, there are things happening on so many deep levels that the story just becomes the distraction so that you are not resisting the expansion. Oh, yes... the stories are exceptional teaching tools as well. Would highly recommend for those who are well on their way spiritually as well as those who want to be. Thanks again, Bill for a wonderful journey.

If you’d like to have an experience in your life that would take you to the spiritual heights, to the emotional depths and to the relational expressions that you want to have with people-and you want to do it with a real master, someone who is very subtle but very powerful-then I want to recommend to you the work of Bill Bauman. He is an incredible being who has touched me in my heart.
– Jack Canfield, Co-creator, Chicken Soup for the Soul series
Bill Bauman’s seminars are the most transformative seminars that I have ever taken. From the moment you walk into the room and sit down, Bill’s energy starts entering your whole physiology. And by the time you leave, you are completely transformed into an individual who is thinking clearly, feeling extremely open, with a heart filled full of love, wanting to do nothing but be of service to the rest of humanity — because you have just been served so totally from Bill.
– Janet Bray Attwood, Co-author, The Passion Test
Bill Bauman is presence in action. He also brings humor to the deeply intuitive. He’s just a great guy, and I highly recommend that you work with him.

About Bill Bauman, Ph.D.
Bill Bauman has been described as an unique and inspiring human presence, a selfless and humble being. As you experience Bill, however, you find that he possesses a compelling giftedness, a beyond-words quality that has deeply touched and transformed the lives of countless people.
Bill’s loving heart is at the forefront of his every interaction. His expansive vision moves people to hear their own truth most compellingly. His transformational gifts are deeply healing and magically empowering. His charismatic touch awakens people to claim their fullest freedom. And his own personal ultimacy is an inspiration for and mirror of the “ultimate human” that we all can become.
Bill was a Catholic priest in the 1960s, a practicing psychologist from the ‘70s to the ‘90s, a business consultant and leader for two decades, a noted leader in the global peace movement in the ‘90s and a spiritual leader from the ‘80s to today. Currently, Bill has combined these many systems into a dynamic and life-changing approach that he now calls “the ultimate human,” “the ultimate healer” and “the ultimate leader.” In this approach, he is a noted trainer, heartful speaker, loving motivator and visionary of life’s possibilities.
With a doctorate in Counseling Psychology, a Master’s degree in Theology, and a Bachelor’s in Philosophy, Bill embraces life from a broad perspective and expansive vision. Thousands of people have attended Bill’s seminars on personal empowerment, dynamic leadership, love and relationships, personal and spiritual growth, and empowered healing-which he has led nationally and internationally over the past 30 years. He has given hundreds of growth-oriented seminars, trainings and presentations to groups of every size.
A proven entrepreneur, Bill started and led four profitable private businesses, as well as his own successful private practice as a psychologist. With his adored wife Donna, he founded and led two non-profit organizations-Washington, DC’s World Peace Institute (through the 1990’s) and The Center for Soulful Living (through the 2000’s).
He has recently authored three groundbreaking books: Oz Power: How to click your heels and take total charge of your life (2005); Soul Vision: A modern mystic looks at life through the eyes of the soul (2009); and The Soul in Love: Heartful and Inspirational Poetry (2010). He is currently writing a book on (you guessed it!) the Ultimate Human.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is a virtual course?
"I have never participated before in an on-line course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion, and facebook postings created a wonderful safe cocoon to participate. I haven’t seen a course so well put together ever – not in all the years of taking college classes – and I had my doubts about doing an on-line course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.”
