Rise Above It is a book, a seminar, and most importantly, a way of life. It was created as a course in 1989, published as a book in 2000, and reprinted in 2005. The course and book are based on a simple concept: at the core of every major religion and spiritual path are the same universal principles. These perennial truths can all be found in a divinely given sequence within the Ten Commandments, spiritually understood.

Over the past twenty years, Rise Above It has been taught in a variety of settings (college campuses, prisons, religious centers, and homes) across America and in several countries around the world. Beyond our general program for individual spiritual development, we also have a prison program and a college program.

Most recently, Rise Above It has been expanded to include a course on the Spiritual Dimensions of Marriage. This course combines spiritual principles with the latest research in the field of marriage education—all within the faith-based framework of the Ten Commandments.

We invite you to join us on this incredible journey translating timeless spiritual principles into spiritual practices.

With best wishes,
Ray and Star
