No, that is the work of Jose Stevens and JP Van Hulle. They have written articles and have audio tapes of material about the 9 Needs.

Check with them for what is currently available.

"Michael Speaks: The Legacy of Sarah Chambers"

"Love is the highest truth.  Truth is the highest good." ... Michael

The Center for Michael Teachings, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of print versions of the original Michael transcripts from the 1970s — Michael Speaks: The Legacy of Sarah Chambers (Volumes 1 and 2)

We are here with you today.”  With those few words in August 1973, Sarah Chambers, her husband Richard, and their good friends Alice and Dick started a journey that took them far beyond anything they could possibly imagine.  They explored the unseen realm of the spiritual world with their teacher “Michael.”  Along with good friend Eugene Trout, they created a new spiritual teaching — based in love — that helps people become more of who they truly are.  The group kept written transcripts of most of their meetings.  Those transcripts were copied and passed around to their friends and coworkers, then copied and passed to many, many others over the years. 

Why am I here?” someone asked one night.  Michael answered, “To hear the words you didn’t hear 2,000 years ago.  Maybe this time, you will listen.

Volume 1 (619 pages) contains the transcripts of those original sessions — digitized, formatted for easier reading and edited to change most real names to aliases.  . . .   Volume 2 (559 pages) contains charts, cartoons, drawings, three compilations made by the original group members, background information about many of the group members, interviews with several original members (including Sarah Chambers and Eugene Trout), interviews with Michael channels and a history of the Michael Teachings.     

If you have a mailing list, newsletter, blog or website, please share this announcement. 

To purchase printed copies of Volume 1 and Volume 2, visit
We want the books to be available to as many people as possible so we have set the purchase price at the minimum we are allowed to charge by the publisher so they will not be available via Amazon or other book distribution sites unless we raise the price.

See the posting at;topicseen#new

Scanned copies of the transcripts were released May 5, 2012, with instructions for obtaining copies.


This message went out this morning. The formation of a new non-profit was announced at the annual Michael Student gathering at the Seven Oaks Retreat Center in Virginia last week.
Date/Time:  May 5, 2012  5:55 AM Eastern Daylight Time

For the past few years, we have been collecting copies of transcripts from the Michael study group in the 1970s with Sarah Chambers and friends.  Most of what we have collected comes from members of that original group.

After consulting with legal experts, it has been confirmed that these original transcripts are in the Public Domain and may be freely shared with Michael students.

We are making these transcripts universally available to help dispel some of the false mystique, mystery and misunderstanding that have surrounded their existence, whereabouts and use before now.  It is our intent to make them readily accessible, free of charge, to Michael students and other interested persons everywhere.  We encourage you to download these transcripts, in whole or in part, for your own study and sharing with others.  Since they are exact copies of the original Michael study group sessions held in Oakland during the 1970s, we believe they are an invaluable resource for expansion of knowledge about the Michael group and its teachings by interested students and scholars everywhere.

The transcripts may be downloaded from

Included in the file directory (in PDF format) are:

- Dimensions Magazine (April and June 1975)
- A compilation called "One True Teaching" in 2 parts
- A compilation called "A Cosmic Teaching"
- Charts and Graphs that the study group used (TOMG_Misc.pdf)
- Individual transcript sessions from 1973 through 1978 (TOMG_date.pdf)
- A compilation called "The Teachings of Michael"

  The link included in this message points to an online file directory where you can download scanned copies of the transcripts we have gathered in PDF format.  The files in this directory do contain real names, so we ask students to respect the privacy of the individuals.

  At some later time, we intend to release an easier-to-read version (with aliases for names), which will include an updated history of the Michael Teachings that includes interviews with members of the original study group.

Please share this message with other Michael students that you know.

Bodytypes / Re: Question about a Joel Friedlander book
« on: June 08, 2011, 11:33:01 PM »
I have the book and it will is very useful for learning about body types.
  The only other books that cover them are The Michael Handbook, Journey of Your Soul and Michael: The Basic Teaching to a much lesser degree than Joel's book.
  The body type names and understandings came to us from the original Michael group who had been studying Gurdjieff's teachings before they encountered Michael.  Many of the terms we use in the Michael Teachings today came from that body of knowledge as it helped the people to relate to the new information coming in.  Gurdjieff was a Michael student in his day. 


Michael Books / Hard-to-find books and new e-books
« on: June 08, 2011, 11:18:42 PM »
Many of the printed books have been out of print for a while now.
For those who don't have a copy, check:
1.  With the author first to see if they have a supply.
2.  Check with the various book websites like Amazon that sell used copies.  There are quite a few out there now besides Amazon.
3.  Check with book stores like Chaucer's in Santa Barbara, CA that specialize in metaphysical books and often have hard-to-find books available.

4.  There are also several e-books recently released in the past year.  
- Jose Stevens has a full set of e-books on the overleaves, called PersonEssence.  It has lots of information not in the older books.  
- Kay Kamala has an e-book on relationships between the Roles.  
- Victoria Marina-Thompkins offers her new book on the monads in print version or e-book format.
