We will be adding more transcripts here as they become available. Right now, we’re starting with some of the oldest meetings so you could see what Samuel’s teachings were like early in his work.

  • December 7th, 2008

    This meeting contains teachings relevant for all seasons! Samuel begins with a brief discussion about how the holidays can become stressful when we’re focused on “shoulds,” and he gives an experiment to lighten and brighten our holidays. He then talks about the role of light in cultural holiday celebrations to lead into his main message, the lessons the animals of the traditional Christmas story can teach us. Those lessons spring from the sheep, whose fear creates unity, the camels which are motivated by pain, and from the donkey which simply does what it is asked, says, "Yes, I can," and becomes a vehicle for the Light.

  • November 2nd, 2008

    During this enlightening meeting Samuel discusses the benefits of consciously making another’s life better and brighter; how we experience loss, what we can learn from it, and why it manifests in our lives; blame as an avoidance tactic; how to access what we need for what we are here to do; and four tools that will help us rebuild, experience new beginnings with joy, and be fulfilled.

  • October 5th, 2008

    Samuel combines his wisdom with the practical experiences of the audience to create an evening of teachings that can make lives better—ours and those around us. The evening’s discussions include: how a simple act can make a life better and brighter; tools to use when feeling overburdened; the difference between “I want” and “I need”; what makes a Guardian truly happy; compassion—its uses and misuses; choosing to be happy and loving; recognizing that if a response isn’t loving, it’s based on fear; the risks of offering help when not asked; and “stupid human tricks” that make difficult times harder.

  • September 7th, 2008

    Samuel begins the evening with a brief discussion about the importance of seeing and creating miracles in our daily lives, saying “recognize the day-to-day miracles and you start living in day-to-day magic. He then uses the backdrop of his upcoming group trip to the Yucatan to answer questions from David Oldham about the Yucatan Dragon Force, and the interconnectedness of the Yucatan, Atlantis and Thula.

  • August 3rd, 2008

    In this highly interactive meeting, Samuel creates an evening of practical wisdom with teachings and discussions including: techniques for healing; why some tools are right for one moment but not the next; the importance, each day, of learning and knowing what works for us; the need to take care of ourselves; how to turn around negative emotional responses; the power of the Gold Cord technique and how to use it; the treasure chest of wisdom we call our body; the help we have within and without; that love changes you and changes this world; how to bring in the strength you are seeking; and more.

  • July 6th, 2008

    Samuel encourages the audience to recall childhood memories of summer and uses that discussion as the foundation for this meeting. His teachings include: how memories define us; the consequences of focusing on negative experiences of our past; how looking at our present as we do our childhood can bring joy; the benefit of knowing that everything has a purpose that relates to us personally; ending the cycle of anger, irritation, and isolation; why "bad things happen to good Guardians"; the role perspective plays on our view of the quality of our lives; the importance of defining our lives by what is within us rather than by what is in the world.

  • June 1st, 2008

    Samuel begins this meeting asking us to review what we've learned about ourselves during the preceding month, and then uses that discussion as the backdrop for helping us realize how our old patterns keep us in ruts. He then explains why we need to observe our old behaviors and then try something new; warns us to "be careful, but not too careful" with the changes we are creating; discusses how we are blocking the magic in our lives and how that affects us; asks us to put on our magical glasses and see as a new being; and much, much more.

  • May 4th, 2008

    Samuel’s discussions during this meeting relate to learning how to create good relationships with Source, others, and ourselves. The evening’s topics include: how money offers us an opportunity to learn the best and the worst about ourselves; why we treat others the way we treat ourselves; communication as the most important thing in any relationship; the reason we change, and the best way to change anything that causes us major problems; the power of “turning around and marching in the other direction”; how to make change stick; the importance of knowing what we want in a relationship; and the power of recognizing how much our choices cost us.

  • April 6th, 2008

    During this lively, laughter-filled meeting Samuel covers a wide range of topics. He begins with how our last few weeks have shown us what we need for healing and wholeness, and which behaviors are “level one” and “level two.” Samuel then shifts to Questions and Answers featuring David Oldham as Source. Samuel playfully answers questions about the 2008 group trip to Mexico, including its “airy-fairy” aspects; how to get ready for the upcoming retreat; the 2007 New Year’s Eve ritual; and the difference between ceremony and ritual.

  • March 2nd, 2008

    Using the spring equinox as a backdrop, Samuel talks about the importance of a balanced life in creating a year that flows more easily, allowing us to better fulfill our purpose as Guardians. He discusses: symptoms of a life in balance versus a life out of balance; the error of seeking success while motivated by fear of failure; learning a way to avoid pain, suffering and failure; tools for balance; the power of knowing what feeds us, what we’re good at, what our strengths are and what our sabotages are.
