TheCESS Has Launched and You’re Invited!

Spiritual Self-Sovereignty That Serves Us All

We are endowed with free will and wired as social beings who thrive best in communities.

Sacrificing personal liberty for social responsibility — or vice versa — is unsustainable.

Our grand human experiment — as individuals and as societies — is reconciling the inherent tension between personal freedom and collective wellbeing. Navigating this well is the heart of Enlightened Self-Sovereignty.

If doing this is precious to you — and if you know that superior solutions stem from and support a spiritually elevated version of love and wisdom, rather than from our own ego — Dr. Gruder would love to welcome you as a free member of The Center for Enlightened Self-Sovereignty. Apply now to join.
