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 achievement of the fullness of mortal life. It is through the conquest of one's psychic circles and the enhancement of Adjuster attunement, that we become of better and more joyful service to our fellows in this world and the 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 an online study group in Portland, OR, coordinates the Fellowship’s Inmate Correspondence Program and is co-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.
