About the Inspiration and Enlightenment Workshop Author

Welcome to the Inspiration and Enlightenment Workshop!

Stefan Emunds Profile Pic SquareModern writers author books, maintain blogs, discuss relevant subjects on social media, produce videos, and hold speeches. They offer a holistic service that revolves around the core value they labor to produce for their audience.

In the case of the Inspiration & Enlightenment Workshop, the value is enlightenment, the evolution of consciousness.

Why Another Enlightenment Website?

My heart’s desire is to be an inspiring writer. I used to maintain an author website but that felt like self-promotion and not like mi casa.

Practical Enlightenment

The other month, my daughter complained about an enlightenment book she had read. “Too philosophical and no practical value”, she said and added that she felt the book left her hanging.

True, many enlightenment books end with cliffhangers.

Not much sticks from reading nonfiction. What makes ideas stick? Practice.

Why a Workshop?

I like to compare our body-mind-soul vehicle to a mechanism (like a clockwork) that lacks a few parts and needs fine-tuning. Agreed, we need to read the manual (enlightenment literature) and get acquainted with all the gears, springs, belts, bearings, pins, and lubricants. But after that, we better get practical and do the great work.

Many enlightenment books turn out manuals. I started out writing a manual too but, halfway through, I stopped. No need for another reference book. I decided to focus on the practicalities and applications instead. That’s why workshop.

Our Content

Our flagship content of the Inspiration & Enlightenment Workshop is a two-year practical enlightenment email course. Believe it or not, it’s free.

You can also enjoy short email courses (also free), and read articles and enlightenment gems, and watch enlightenment vemes.

Our newsletter comes in the form of series on enlightenment subjects, for example, a ten-episode series on karma.


The goal of practical enlightenment is to lead a professional enlightened life. Professional means to act according to the right principles.

Taking principles seriously can be life-changing. Principles are seeds that grow a garden in your mind. But how do you know whether you found an enlightenment principle and not a fixed idea? Fixed ideas need a lot of explanation and justification. For example, the dogma that souls have only one shot at incarnate life. Why should immortal souls that live in a universe of googolplexes of years live only once for sixty to eighty years, like a drop of water that falls on a hot stone? One needs to write a whole book to argue that. Cosmic principles, on the other hand, speak for themselves. They shine like stars in the sky. You are an immortal soul having planetary adventures – that needs no explanation.

I believe we can renovate outdated religions with enlightenment principles, for example, Christianity. No offense Christianity is a beautiful religion and my heart beats for it, but it’s Middle Age. What about this:

  • Christianity is an attitude, not a dogma.
  • We are not natural-born sinners, we are natural-born prophets.
  • Mankind was not exiled from paradise, mankind is the greatest business in the universe.
  • There is no devil, neither demons. There is only adversity.
  • Jesus Christ was a great example, not a great exception.
  • Everybody will get to heaven and nobody will be left behind.
  • Those who don’t practice unconditional love do not practice Christianity

Visionary Fiction

I believe that an artist is not the source, but a channel through which art manifests. The more humble the artist, the more unobstructed the channel and the better the art.

Self-importance is not only the sorcerers’ supreme enemy but the nemesis of mankind. – Carlos Castaneda.

Yep, writers are sorcerers(ses)!

Self-importance isn’t a matter of morality. Eroding selfishness needs to be a strategy that clears the connection to our higher self – the True Artist. Of course, we still need personality because that’s the craftsman or craftswoman.

Visionary Fiction embraces spiritual and esoteric wisdom, often from ancient sources, and makes it relevant for our modern life. These gems of wisdom are brought forth in story form and in a way that readers can experience the wisdom from within themselves. It emphasizes and envisions humanity’s transition into evolved consciousness. While there is a strong theme, it in no way proselytizes or preaches. Visionary is a tone as well as a genre. The ‘visionary’ element can technically be present in any genre and set in any time. – Visionary Fiction Alliance

Where Are My Book on the Inspiration and Enlightenment Value Chain?

Thirty years ago, I began my spiritual career at B.O.T.A., a modern mystery school that teaches the arcana of Tarot, the Tree of Life, and esoteric Astrology. What they taught me is high up in the enlightenment section.

So were the first books I published, like the Genesis. These days, I write for a broader audience, trying to take people from inspiration to enlightenment. 

My Books on the Inspiration and Enlightenment Value Chain

Inspiration and Enlightenment Value Chain Graph Published Books

I dedicated the first years of my writing career to promoting contemporary, spiritual Christianity. I mused about the possibility of modern prophecy in The Priest Whisperer, the story of a pastor called to know God. It was my first book, and, to be frank, it misses a proper plot. It is still a bit inspiring I think, so, I left the first episode out there as a relic of my early days. One day, I will pick it up again to give it a proper plot.

Genesis is a more recent work that puts away with the notions of original sin and damnation. Mankind is the greatest business in the universe. Despite the appearances to the contrary, the Genesis is science-proof. It illustrates the creation and formation of other dimensions or universes and cosmic mankind long before the Big Bang took place.

Holistic Self-realization and Feng Shui 101 are the first books I published in the inspiration sector.

I used to maintain two blogs. The Daily Inspirer was dedicated to inspiration and Nu Christ to a contemporary spiritual Christianity. There are still remnants of them on Facebook. With the Inspiration and Enlightenment Workshop, I combine the two subjects and focus on helping people moving upwards the inspiration value chain, wherever they may be at the moment.

A Bit of Biography

I was born in Germany and enjoyed two years backpacking in Australia, New Zealand, and South-East Asia in my early twenties.

After getting married, I chose a necessity-career in the telecommunication industry. Since then, I have worked as a business development manager in Europe, Middle East, and in Asia. 

2012, I kick-started my author career. 

At the moment, I live in the Philippines. When I’m not writing, I play with my son, take him to his Taekwondo training or drum practice, or to the beach.
