Meet Founder, Dr. Maryann Miller, and find out how it all began.
If we haven’t met before, I’m Dr. Maryann Miller, President of the Institute for Global Transformation™. My days are divided between my love and work for humanity and the planet, and my three amazing children and ten grandchildren. They keep me busy learning new technology – don’t know what I would do without their help – and going to fun places with them.
My spiritual journey began back in the 70s. I studied different Western Spiritual traditions for over 45 years. During that time my numerous studies led me to information and techniques I needed to effectively create a happy, healthy, loving and purposeful life. I soon learned, however, that I wanted to share what I had learned. I wanted to give back, pay it forward, and join those who were helping to make the world a better place for everyone..
Soon, my love for helping each person achieve personal transformations in consciousness and mastering their lives became my life purpose. In 2002, I founded the Institute for Global Transformation™ and along with our exceptional team of creative evolutionaries, it became a 501(c)(3), not for profit in 2005.
What you might not know about me
I’m a professional artist – I work with oils. This is Monterey’s famous cannery row. In the old days, this was the first cannery you saw but it mysteriously burned down. A hotel now stands in its place.
Although I’m only a novice, I absolutely love quantum physics and Schrodinger’s Split Screen Experiment
I also love to write and am an internationally published author.
I overcame my fear of public speaking to become a national seminar instructor. My philosophy is that, if I can do it, I can help teach anyone to do it.
Other than my awesome family, my main passion is the Institute for Global Transformation™. It’s amazing array of talented Change-Makers, and its many programs and courses designed to assist in raising your consciousness, becoming your best self, creating the life you envision, and being of service to humanity is my passion and purpose in life.
My spiritual background:
- Certified Nature of the Soul Teacher, having taken Nature of the Soul, Teacher Training, and Advanced Teacher Training, from Georgia Lambert. These courses took over 12 years to complete.
- Certified Rayid Master.
- New Decision Therapy Counselor, having written a manual for the process.
- I have a blog called Just Ask, Conscious Conversations which discusses various everyday challenges we encounter in life, from a spiritual perspective.
- Over 45 years of spiritual study with AMORC
- Spiritual Seminar instructor.
I’ve met so many inspirational people and found satisfying answers to my questions about consciousness, life, love, death, purpose, and why I am here. I’ve had the opportunity to share all of this with those who find their way to our website and with the thousands of others I’ve had the honor of meeting.
The Institute was founded to connect everyone who searched for answers to life’s big questions, who wanted to give back, who had an inspirational message or service they wanted to share, and who were willing to join together with others to help make the world a better place for everyone.
It has been my experience that, in order to reach out and connect in ways that are meaningful and make things happen, you need to be a team player, a good listener, and mindful of others’ creative ideas. Gathering together this group of talented, creative visionaries was very important to the framework that has allowed the Institute to grow organically into what it has become today.
I also believe it’s important to learn how to surf the winds of creative ideas and change, which is what we did and continue to do. Surfing requires one to be very aware and mindful, retain balance, perspective, and persevere. This is how the Institute has continued to move forward and grow. As we continue our forward momentum, we’re always open to change. Allowing each interested party a voice in the growth of our community has served us well over the years.
It’s been an exciting journey, one which we continue to explore and treasure. We continue to add talented, gifted, transformational leaders to our administrative team and each of our members brings creativity and wisdom that helps us continue to grow the Institute. We value each of them for their support, dedication, wisdom, and service to humanity and the planet. They are amazing and I’m grateful for each one of them!
