Urantia University Institute
Actualizing personal potentials of mind, matter and spirit through enlightened study, service, and experience.
What we do and support
UrantiaUniversity Institute (UUI) was founded in 2009 to provide a variety of online educational opportunities focused on the integrated study of religion, science, and philosophy for students of the Urantia revelation. Students and participants engage in a process of spiritual transformation as they explore, discern, and actualize the truths, knowledge, and ideals found in The Urantia Book.
Urantia Book New Reader Course
When spiritual seekers first encounter The Urantia Book, they are usually intrigued but often overwhelmed by its size and complexity and all the strange new terms and concepts. After initial attempts, many of them give up trying to read it. Without a little help, it is difficult for them to cross the threshold into a serious study of the text. And so they may never experience the joys and spiritual transformation that come from fully exploring this revelation.
This course begins at the foundation—one’s attitude toward self—and then brings students around to a study of Jesus’ unified and balanced personality before taking a look at the example that Jesus set for the most effective loving service to others. Along the way, students will practice intentionally following Jesus’ example. There will be exercises that bring about greater personality balance and opportunities for practicing loving service in everyday life. This course is self-directed.
First Steps Foreword
A Foreword course for Beginners…and for those who still feel like Beginners!
First Steps Foreword is a very brief (2 weeks; 3 seminars) look at the Foreword of The Urantia Book and is intended to reduce some of the mystery and remove some of the anxiety that most new readers (and many experienced readers) feel when faced with the Foreword. We’ll take a fresh look at the author’s purpose and technique, examine the structure and content from a high level, and talk a bit about what it means to “understand the Foreword.”
Life and Teachings of Jesus
The Life and Teachings of Jesus course is a weekly guided discussion consisting of a sequential reading of Part IV of The Urantia Book. The course will accept registrations on a rolling basis due to the length of the course. Each class will be offered two separate times on Thursdays to better accommodate our international audience.
The Urantia Book
A satisfying and far-reaching revelation of our origin, history and destiny
No book in human history has ever attempted to present the integrated understanding of the coordination and interpenetration of the three infinite, eternal, and unique realities of Matter, Mind and Spirit on the vast scale portrayed in The Urantia Book.
A major theme of vital importance to personal and planetary progress in The Urantia Book is the necessity of developing and maintaining a balanced perspective on the universe, one that rests equally on Religion, Philosophy, and Science in order to better comprehend the true nature of Spirit, Mind, and Matter.
Why is this integrated view so important?
Perhaps because, more than ever before, humankind needs a balanced and satisfying understanding of the true meaning, value, and purpose of our individual and interpersonal lives as well as our place in the cosmos—a viewpoint that wisely and richly integrates the domains and knowledge of religion, philosophy, and science.
