A note from course creator, Lauri Ann Lumby: 

Authentic Freedom  is a journey of self-discovery and transformation.  Through this process, you will begin to become aware of the many ways in which you are imprisoned by fear, false perceptions and illusions – and how these fears and false-perceptions stand in the way of achieving authentic freedom.  Authentic freedom is recognized by a life in which you know the consistent experience of peace and where you are free to openly share the gifts that the Divine gave you.  Authentic freedom is your Divine inheritance, and the way that the Divine intends you to live.  Instead of embracing this Divine inheritance, most of us are left to struggle through our lives, plagued by the irrational fears, anxieties and compulsions that hold us prisoner. 

The Authentic Freedom Course gives you a map to this freedom.  Hidden within Jesus’ teachings and ministry is the core truth that Jesus came to reveal.   This is the truth that Jesus promised as “the truth that shall set you free.”  It is in living this truth that we experience a life of authentic freedom.  Unfortunately, most of us do not have access to this truth.  Instead, we suffer from the core spiritual wound which results in the seven core fears and their resulting compulsions.  Fortunately, out of his deep love and compassion, Jesus left behind a myriad of tools to help us to be healed of the core wound and its resulting fears so that we can once again enjoy the fullness of joy.  Jesus’ teachings can all be boiled down to this one core truth.  Getting to this truth however is not that simple.  The seven sacred truths provide the path through which realization of the core truth is made possible.  In learning to embrace these seven sacred truths, our core spiritual wound, along with the resulting spiritual fears can once and for all find healing and release. 

Entering into the process of Authentic Freedom, you will discover a powerful tool for healing and transformation.  Through scripture, an introduction into Eastern Energy Medicine, explanation of the Authentic Freedom concepts, and practical exercises in meditation and contemplation, you will have an opportunity to integrate this knowledge into your own life experience.  With diligent practice and through the gift of Grace, you will experience the expansive freedom of being released from the fears and compulsions which have held you prisoner within yourself.  Freed from these obstacles, you will once again be able to live fully in the peace and joy of who the Divine made you to be.  Through this liberation, your own unique giftedness will be able to emerge and you will discover the excitement of being able to generously share your gifts in the world.  In this way, you shall become a vessel through which the Divine's  transforming love and compassion will be released in our world.  Many blessings to you as you discover for yourself the land of freedom – the good and gracious land, flowing with milk and honey.
