Dr. Scott's Spiritual Lineage

Since very early childhood, my spiritual  journey had been a purely solo journey.  In the late 1980's, I took a couple of courses with Grand Master Mantak Chia - I have practiced his Daoist techniques for many years and still do today.  About 10 years later, in 1999, I was taught the  "Ah Meditation" - not knowing the source of the teaching.  Months later, in a bookshop in Chichester,  West Sussex,  England  I discovered  Dr. Wayne Dyer's cassette tape and book on the "Ah Meditation": Manifest your Destiny - the technique of manifestation.  In the autumn of 2000, I met Dr. Dyer at a London UK seminar.  In January 2001, I had a serious healing crisis along with a general feeling -  for the first time in my life - that I could not progress any further spiritually without the help and guidance of a master. I asked the Divine to send me a teacher - I prayed to meet with and study with Dr. Dyer's guru who had taught him the "Ah Meditation" - Dr. Bhaskaran Pillai.

I met Dr. Pillai in London, England in late May of 2001. In early-September of 2001, having coordinated a London seminar for Dr. Pillai, that Saturday evening, he initiated me - a life changing experience. I am first non-Westerner to be initiated in the Tamil (South Indian) Siddha tradition/lineage.  Dr. Pillai was a student of The Mahirishi amongst other masters.  Dr. Dyer calls Dr. Pillai “one of the most enlightened beings on the planet.”  The lineage of the Tamil Siddha Masters includes Aghastiar, Tirurmular, and Swami Ramalingam.

My personal journey has included working with the Christ Consciousness energy, chanting and sacred sounds, alchemy, Freemasonry, Celtic spirituality astrology, hermeticism, the rainbow body of light, tantricism, Tibetan Buddhism, the Western Mystery tradition, the Christian Mystics, etc.



My PhD, in International History, was awarded in 2005 by the London School of Economics - London, UK. As a college educator I have taught courses in Eastern Religions, Comparative Religions, History, Political Science, Health Care and Public Administration. Most importantly, my music and my empowerments are experiential not intellectual.
