About the Class
This course is designed to refresh and renew the spiritual aspirations of Urantia Book readers who have by faith, entered the kingdom of God and therein set for themselves the goal of achieving of the fullness of mortal life through the conquest of their psychic circles and attainment of Adjuster attunement so as to be of better and more joyful service to their fellows in this world and the next.

One of the goals for any in-depth study
of The Urantia Book at UUI is for students to experience expanded cosmic consciousness
and enhanced spiritual perception.
Can I audit this class?
Due to the nature of the study, this class is open only to Participants and not to Auditors.
Participants are expected to make an effort to complete the weekly reading and discussion questions and engage in the online webinars as often as possible.
Will I get a grade for this class?
At this time, no grades are given for completing UUI classes. This class has been designed chiefly for personal enrichment.
This course is intended for serious students of The Urantia Book who are familiar with its theology, philosophy, and conceptual framework. However, students of all levels may benefit from it.
After I enroll, what happens next?
Instructor: Michael Hill
Michael has been reading and studying the Urantia Book since 1965 when he purchased his first edition off the shelf in a book store in Santa Monica. Its teachings have formed and continue to form the foundation of his life.
He was active in the Urantia movement in the 70s, 80s and early 90s and gave several presentations at ICs and regional conferences during those years. He currently attends a study group in nearby Corvallis, OR, coordinates the Fellowship’s Inmate Correspondence Program and is chair of the Urantian Communities Northwest (UCNOW), a regional group serving the Urantia brotherhood in the Pacific Northwest. He has also other online Urantia Book courses.
He was born and lived almost all of his life along Santa Monica Bay in California, where he played an active community role until he retired in 2010. He moved to Oregon where he and his partner of 32 years, Greg (also a reader), started a small, gentlemen’s farm off a gravel road, two miles outside of a town with a population of 164 (Alsea, OR), in the Coast Range of Oregon. They raise hay, berries (which they sell as jam at the local mercantile), fruits and the usual range of vegetables.
He is a retired high school teacher, licensed Marriage and Family Counselor and Educational Consultant on Land Use.
