The School of Love~Awareness teaches the realisation and cultivation of pure awareness* via a practical syllabus of Awareness Studies
The SLA awareness based system of consciousness development in all aspects, from individual to group coaching, relationship coaching, business and career coaching, courses, seminars, education research, etc, has been developed, practised and taught over a 35 year period and can be applied to any area of life.
Meditation training and soul realisation is provided by The School of Love~Awareness as an integral part of the transpersonal psychological structure the SLA meditation paths, as well as at our seminars and through private telephone consultation. What is the soul? The sun can be seen to have three distinct aspects: the central life or will of the sun to be, its nuclear fire. This is equitable with the central element of the soul, its will to be. Then the heat of the sun, the result of its fire. This is like the love of the soul. The resulting consciousness which pervades the solar system from this central fiery filament and allow us to exist in daylight and be cognitive, think and undertake intelligent activity. This is like the field of awareness of the soul within which it too cognises, experiences and thinks.
Conflict Resolution Coaching involves working consciously with principles of duality and non-duality, the principles of harmony and conflict at a social level exist because every person and group experiences the uniqueness of their agency distinctly from that of others. Society being a composition of individual’s and group’s with this concern, finds itself then to be a network of power relations. All social relations are relations of power, as Foucault has famously said. Social relations have power as their primary concern because most agents are insecure about their own power. Thus conflict arises based on insecurities and imagined threats. The entire social network is a cohesion of such conflict status.
So the central problem is two fold; we experience our ‘selves’ as distinct identities and, we do not know how to process powers external to our own and its sense of agency and liberty. Thus we react and create the infrastructure of conflict which is predicated on fear; which fear is our lack of ability to embrace, digest and transform external powers. Herein we fortify our sense of unique agency to ward off such intimacy and in so doing compound the problem. The sense of self provides the boundary and signifies that which we must defend, and that which we must defend against, which is outside our self and thus not our self. And that which must be defended. The possibility of an external power greater than our own, spells death to the sense of identity which is insecure. This ‘normative paradigm’ results in many distortions of human values and engenders conflict consciousness.
The question, then, is how can one embrace and process external powers, in whatever form and whichever relationship, and still remain stable, secure and true to ones own power and being? The answer is to find a source of power within, that is superior to the dualistic energy basis of being polarised in ‘me against you, us against them’ ways of being which engender conflict. SLA uses a special meditative practice, Soul loving, to do this. After initially strengthening ones Soul alignment via meditation on the nature of the Soul, one then has conscious use of an inner resource of non-dual energy. This then becomes the reservoir into which one can dissolve the dualistic energy structure of conflict. Dualistic energies can only exist if their poles have integrity. If such energies touch non-dual energy their poles are collapsed and become absorbed into, and transformed into the non-dual field, becoming its own nature, non-duality or love. Through this practice one gains the experience and power to transform the dualistic nature of conflict into the non-dual nature of peace and love, for self and others by embracing and transforming it, as opposed to the ‘normative paradigm’ of fear and separation. These principles underlay the heart of all dispute resolution.
Social tension, existing on the basis of the misperception of fear and the hasty reaction to others misperceptions, also perpetuates cycles of subconscious, as well as conscious reactionariness. Un-wisdom is taken to be intelligence on a subconscious level, which exists to protect itself and its interests. This is logical until the subconscious is enlightened by the awareness of greater ways of being which the soul cognises. The task of the person who is becoming a peace maker is to mediate the greater understanding of peaceful interconnectedness of the soul to the subconscious separative conflict archetype. During the development of the transformatory skill the usual subconscious fear of other people can then also be dissolved, transfiguring relationships into spaces composed of trusting, honest, conscious and respectful qualities based on the power to relate lovingly. Thus a heart focus in relationships is engendered, and through heart polarisation, greater meaningfulness in relationships and life is experienced

“Drew helped me with a soul meditation that I still use to this day. The thing that is so wonderful about knowing Drew is that he has a great depth of spiritual experience / beingness that he is able to share / confer on the person with whom his is working. He also radiates fun and joy. He radiated an unswerving joy to me when we met that made me see that there was a joy inside of me, that, despite what I was going through at the time, which was hugely difficult, I could access that joy. That joy that he highlighted in me could then be infused into all of the perceived difficulty I was experiencing and raise it up for healing and purification. With great ease, he said, “I see the pain you are in and it doesn’t frighten me. In fact, there is a lot more to you, my friend, than the pain and confusion that you are experiencing now and I am willing to walk with you a while and support you in seeing the whole, not just the current lesson and struggle.”
“I met Drew through a seminar I was facilitating at. I have had my own personal practice for years, but was looking to take it to a higher level. I was waiting for the right person. I joined Drew’s session at the seminar and was duly impressed by the quality of mediation and soul connection that he enabled. I followed up with him and we began some 1-1 work. We covered several methods including the SLA practices of soul loving and Violet-Diamond-Transformation. Violet-Diamond-Transformation took me to a whole new level in meditating. Afterwards I felt as though something had been lifted off my chest and I felt that I was vibrating at a higher level. People close to me commented on how grounded I was and how radiant I looked. I felt a sense of potency about my life and all that went with it. This feeling encouraged me to keep the practice up. Now, a year on, I still practice this meditation and it has become a part of my personal peace practice. I recommend this process and Drew very highly. What I found most helpful about Drew was his practical capacity to lead meditation, his strong intuitive ability to identify the main areas for me to focus on and his knowledge of the art and science of meditation. It all made sense. He has a very profound knowledge of these topics and has a robust practice. Also, Drew is a very respectful person and I have a high degree of trust in his persona. Thank you Drew for enabling a tangible connection to my own soul. This is priceless.”
“I have attended Drew’s course when I was close to burn out and didn’t know what to do any more. The impact the one week intensive teachings and meditations had on me, immediately and over time, was astounding. Synchronicity started becoming part of my daily life again and things, that I had long wished and hoped for, manifested. The course allowed me to realise that I can be replaced at work and that only by being full, authentic and deeply centred, would I be of service to others again. They say you meet the right teachers at the right time. This surely has been true in my case!”
“My wife and I consulted Drew for a two day workshop on our quest to a more harmonious, open, true and understanding relationship. One of Drew’s gifts is to describe complex issues – such as conflicts between humans, why they happen, where they come from and what lies underneath them – in very simple, clear and extremely wise words. To get this understanding and tools such as SLA soul loving 1 and 2, to heal parts of the underlying energies of the conflict and stress we had, has nourished our relationship. We know that we have a long way to go and we still plan to continue with more workshops. Practising with patience we felt guided by the way Drew has followed up our process so far.”
“The sessions with Drew made it possible for me to change my job after only 2 weeks of working with him. I was aware that this was the step I had to take and his counselling supported me to act in a direction that I was afraid of before, because of limiting myself. Today I see myself being able to communicate more honestly and be true to my heart. I now am able to take decisions that feel true to my real self. I am thankful for Drew’s ongoing support and I am totally convinced that his work is what we need for a better world. I am amazed that we only had about three intensive sessions, that changed my life a lot and made dreams come true.”
“How to describe an experience, which changed my understanding of consciousness? I had the opportunity to get to know a guided meditation by Drew. My aim was to find a way to deal with my fear. What I found was a way to feel a wide open love. A love that comes out of myself, which connected me with the whole world. With Drew’s guidance I connected in meditation with another person. I thought, that I saw the soul and the different facets of the man. The main thing: I felt a deep understanding and acceptance. It was like seeing myself within him. There was no difference, not an I and a he. In my state of mind we were one. A warm, lovely and centred impulse flowed through my whole body. I am grateful, that Drew helped me, to see myself and other people with different eyes.”
“During soul loving 2 meditation with another person, you can feel the other persons awareness and love trying to discover something about ‘what is being here in this moment between us and to concentrate on you, and me with you, and that’s a very soulful experience to do this together. It was direct, but you also feel it over the next days, because you know something new about yourself, which you know comes from a truth moments in soul connection with another person.”
“I learnt Violet Diamond Transformation and was amazed at how powerful it is. The practice made me feel that I was really, fully embodied in my energy and body and consciousness. It fills me with joy and awareness and I find its one of the easiest ways for me to connect with my self. I also learnt Inner-Child Soul Healing and it was also a very profound and deep experience for me. I was able to bring a love to my innerchild which I didn’t imagine was possible before and it really helped me to understand and heal some things from my childhood, which I’d been confused about for years. Now, with Violet Diamond Transformation, at last, I feel I can move on and become more my self, my real Self.”
“Drew is a wonderful meditation teacher.”
“My first experience with meditation in general was the Soul Loving meditation 1 and 2. I did it with a partner I hardly knew, but I liked and trusted him, so I felt quite safe to do this meditation. Because I had never meditated before I really didnt expect a lot. Drew guided us very carefully and calmly, creating a peaceful atmosphere around us where I could sink into the meditation and connect with my soul more intensely than I had thought. To connect with the other person was challenging because I felt the openness of my heart and therefore vulnerability. But, I did it anyway and it was a deeply touching experience. I felt like I was getting to know my partner within a very short while and developing a really deep understanding and compassion for him. During the following days I had a new and unknown feeling of joy because of the beauty of this way of making contact and sharing.”
“Drew helped me to feel an ecstasy that I never felt before. I learnt Violet Diamond Transformation and Inner-Child Soul Healing. VDT made me feel so peaceful, centred and happy. I could touch a really deep place in my self which was it total ecstasy and peace and, even though it was new for me, I knew it was my self, my soul. The Inner-Child meditation also let me feel deeply integrated. Drew made me feel so safe and loved”.
“The world truly needs your work at the School of Love~Awareness. We’ve been praying for your success as we believe and support your mission. Much Love and Light.”
“I still do the meditation and I’ve noticed that as soon as I stop meditating all my life seems to become a disaster! I don’t know why. Maybe its just that I see things more clearly now. My thoughts used to all mix together and the meditation gives me time, gives me tranquillity, takes me away and leaves me in my own spiritual world, where I find peace.”
“Drew was the first person to ever show me what love is. I didn’t know before that, I couldn’t feel it till I felt his consciousness”.
“I had a couple of meditation sessions with Drew and was very impressed with how powerful the meditations were. Afterwards I felt much more centred, positive and happier. I will be using Drew’s products to gain more positive experiences in my life and continue my journey of self improvement and self mastery.”
“Drew introduced me to the world of spirituality and has been a very good teacher in helping me to go beyond the mind, which was always a challenge for me.”
