The Consciousness Development Program (CDP) is IAC’s premier program for helping individuals to understand who they are beyond the physical body. The coursework includes comprehensive theory and practical techniques to experience a greater reality encompassing consciousness, energy, and realities of a non-physical context.

The program is 40 hours long and includes 16 classes: 10 theoretical lectures and 6 practical sessions for leaving the body. Each class includes a practical energy exercise.

The table at the right includes all upcoming CDP programs, both live, online, and intensive.

About the Program


The CDP provides cogent, high-quality information on several topics, including:

  • A rational approach to spirituality and consciousness which will empower individuals to engage these topics with maturity and critical thinking.
  • Multidimensional reality, or: the broader ecosystem of energy, consciousness, and evolution in which our physical dimension operates.
  • Cosmoethics, or: factors for determining correct personal conduct in this reality and all possible realities.
  • Energy, or: the basic informational building-block of reality, and how we shape it and are shaped by it.
  • Your intimate life plan and strategies to fulfill your purpose and spiritual commitments in this life.

The CDP will provide direct, practical techniques imparting several benefits, including:

  • Developing awareness and control of one’s energy system.
  • Activating and unblocking one’s chakras and energy system.
  • Remaining lucid during the transition outside of one’s physical body.
  • Sharpening lucidity and clarity during one’s out-of-body experiences (often mistaken for unusually ‘lucid dreams’).
  • Cultivating resilience and fortitude in the face of ill, imbalanced, or toxic energies that may frequently afflict one’s emotional or mental state.
  • Expanding and solidifying one’s innate condition of peacefulness, balance, and well-being.

This allows students to ask questions and interact directly with the instructor, no matter how they take the CDP. We are working hard to bring a self-paced option to our students, and hope to make this available sometime in 2018. Stay tuned!
