Why Is This Course Called ‘Becoming a Sun’?

The course “Becoming a Sun” is named to reflect the belief that it is our destiny to become like a sun—radiating warmth, fire, and light from within. It signifies our potential to bring understanding, empathy, and compassion to the world. While not everyone fulfills this destiny, each of us is called to it.

The human journey is one towards grace, and this course illuminates that path, supporting participants as they progress on their journey to becoming a sun.

A Journey to Grace

Emotional and spiritual intelligence guide us on our journey to grace, where we see life as a gift. Awareness is the key to realizing this journey, and through this program, you will learn to embrace the experiences life offers, transforming challenges into profound joy and fulfillment.

Course Structure

The program is based on “Becoming a Sun,” a book composed of poetry and prose, written in mini-chapters that average three pages each. Each day, we will explore one mini-chapter and engage in a reflective journal exercise, creating a powerful and transformative process that builds step-by-step.

Why Attend?

    • Self-Awareness: Gain a deeper understanding of your emotions and how they shape your experiences.
    • Emotional Mastery: Move beyond managing emotions to enjoying the emotional journey of life, achieving uncommon emotional mastery.
    • Spiritual Growth: Develop spiritual intelligence, enhancing your sense of peace, well-being, and empathy for all life forms.
    • Practical Application: Learn how to apply these insights to excel in your personal and professional relationships.


What Past Participants Have Said

“David Karchere’s ‘Becoming a Sun’ is a sun; it literally shone through my heart the moment I began to read it. It is the sun of light, love, and the radiance of Source glowing through each of us. With this book, we are able to feel the sun within us. It is always true, but often so hard to remember. I consider the poems within it to be vital gifts to all who are emerging today, guiding our world toward greater love and oneness.”
