Founder of MSIA
For over 50 years, John-Roger devoted his life to being a way-shower for others to find Spirit within themselves and demonstrate how to live life in greater loving, happiness, and peace. J-R’s humour, joy, and unconditional loving embraced and touched people around the planet. His good works continue on, guiding those studying the path of Soul Transcendence.
After a life-changing event in 1963, John-Roger was given the spiritual keys to anchor what he termed the “Mystical Traveler Consciousness” and five years later began openly sharing the teachings of the spiritual heart in informal settings such as people’s homes. As the popularity of these talks increased, in 1971, the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness (MSIA) was set up as a vehicle to formalize his work.
The common thread throughout all of John-Roger’s work is loving – of self and others, and God – and encouragement for each person to discover that loving within, for that is where God also dwells.
John-Roger 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, China, Japan, Israel, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, and throughout Africa, South America, North America, Australia and Europe.
John-Roger was a prolific writer, with over 50 books to his name and 4 Bestsellers including #1 NY Times Bestsellers.
In all that John-Roger did, he communicated living love, encouraging people to discover the nature of the Divine through their own experience.
