Lillian Wilkinson lives in Los Angeles, is a mother of two and has an extensive background working with people from all walks of life.  In addition to her busy career as an account executive in the graphic arts industry, Lillian mentored and partnered with hundreds of men and women to improve quality of life in relationships and career. Lillian also co-authored and taught a college level course in “Self Empowerment” laying the groundwork for understanding spiritual concepts that when applied, work to alleviate suffering and increase joy.

Lillian’s highest excitement has always been the pursuit and application of spiritual ideals, starting at the age of 18. The early study of Eschatology, which is based on Christian Science, opened the way for a growing passion and unrelenting enthusiasm to understand our true nature and to live accordingly. This led to years of dedicated study and meditation, and recently the use of plant medicines coupled with rigorous self-examination and “A Course In Miracles” textbook as a primary support.  The Course In Miracles makes a fundamental difference between the real and the unreal stating “Nothing real can be threatened.  Nothing unreal exists.”

Lillian is keenly interested in taking the ‘big’ ideas from the ACIM, quantum physics and ancient spiritual teachings and bring them down to practical day-to-day application by understanding that  conditioned beliefs can act as barriers to our happiness and keep us from experiencing greater freedom and increased joy.  It IS possible to change the ‘screen’ of our lives as we shift away from illusions that weigh us down and move into an awareness of a different paradigm, the one the sages and saints have talked about for thousands of years and that in many ways, quantum physics confirms. Lillian understands that through daily application of basic principles to dispel and free our minds from illusion, it is absolutely possible to Awaken to the paradigm of Being One with that which IS and return to our authentic Selves that can only serve as a benefit to all.
