The Philosophy and Practices of the Society of the Faith Master
Society of the Faith Master is
our optional non-secular gratitude outreach. Gratitude is the Survival
Lightkey for us all, empowerment for all, whether you have a religious
belief or do not have any such beliefs. All are acceptable in the
gratitude immersion world we are building, with those who are willing to
live their lives with gratitude.
This society is for those who seek
the religious dimension of faith and gratitude. We have a strong dogma or
code of belief in the inherent goodness of our species and its future
as spiritual beings. Our society is designed to be a high energy place, a
happy place, based on building self-esteem, gratitude, praise and faith.
The purpose of our worship services and
classes is to enhance the quality of life of our members and to
help our members develop community, structure, meaning and a
superordinate goal. That means helping our members develop
faith, building their self-esteem, teaching them how to use the
Gratitude Law of
Attraction, and giving them the other teachings of the
society such as communication skills, entrepreneurial skills and

Live On A Beautiful Planet and We Are So Grateful For It
We Earth Dwellers have So Much To Be
Everywhere we look on our earth there is
beauty. In so many forms and ambiences. We have much to be grateful for.
How often do you just look at where we live?
How often do we marvel at our magnificent planet? It is time for all of your customers,
clients and you to come to appreciate our earth. We have the perfect place
in the solar system for life. We have abundant water. We have an active
planet. We have water, plants, animals, a living ecosystem. Go to Mars or
Venus and try to live there.
Let's look around us. Time to define all the
positive things about our earth and learn the skills of daily thanking our
sun, our water, our air, all the components that make it possible for us
to live on this wonderful planet. We look at all the places on our Earth
where people live and see how they have adapted to them.
But everything on
our earth is in a very narrow temperature range. And the solar radiation
is just right. And the ozone layer protects us. We'll look at the many
cycles including the water cycle, fluctuations of cycles that occur
annually, over many centuries, even millennia. But it always stays
livable. We learn how to be thankful for that.
Earth Gratitude courses, books
and the Earth Gratitude Company
program, we will cover all the things
about our earth to be grateful for. Then we include action steps you can
take to show that Gratitude such as recycling, tree planting,
organic gardening, supporting green businesses.
must include tree planting because it is the elegant solution to our global
warming problem. Even in Brazil it has been found that deforestation
reduces the rainfall in a region, which has threatened the success of a
large hydroelectric project. Trees bring up water from the subsoil and
serve as the wick to create rainfall. Through transpiration of their
leaves, trees exude water vapor into the atmosphere which falls as

IGEI is a Social Enterprise Corporation
|Our Mantra - Always Be Grateful! Always!
The International Gratitude
(IGEI) is a social enterprise corporation
that has social benefit purposes. The International Gratitude
Empowerment Institute (IGEI) sells products and services for creating a
gratitude immersion world. In addition to our profit motive, we are
creating a gratitude immersion worldwide community based on the Way of
Success through Gratitude.
The Way of Success through Gratitude includes these
Gratitude Healing Ways
Gratitude In Business
Gratitude & Spiritual Healing
Gratitude Communication Skills
Society of the Faith Master
In addition to our profit motive, it is a social
purpose corporation with these additional social benefits and goals:
1) Community: To create and
provide an environment for low and middle income people to learn how to
work together positively by teaching personal self-esteem building and
how to build self-esteem in others, thus developing a community based on
faith and gratitude resulting in a gratitude immersion culture.
To empower girls and women through special programs including sports and
entertainment projects for self-esteem building and character
development. To enable them to have a superordinate goal of giving to
the world with no expectation of personal return such as tree planting
projects to fight climate change. To use gratitude in sports to give
strength to women and girls to heal from sexual abuse and domestic
3) Entrepreneurship: Develop
social entrepreneurship projects through micro-financing of small and
medium-sized enterprises including entrepreneurial training programs.
4) Technology: To teach skills to
minorities, women and youth to become Mobile Entrepreneurs through
technologies such as Skype, webinars and podcasts anywhere in the world.
Today’s entrepreneur needs to master these skills even if they have a
brick and mortar outlet for their business. We will teach them how they
can use these new technologies to build their business.
5) Spiritual Development: Through
our self-esteem building programs we will increase personal fulfillment,
enable people to create peaceful loving relationships. When we build
self-esteem, we build a person's spirit. Spiritual development is the
key to bringing us all together to work and live together in a peaceful
world. Spiritual development in our workforce makes people want to be
productive, to be creative and to give their loyalty to each other and
their employers. Without spiritual development it is difficult for
people to lead productive, happy lives.
6): Spiritual Therapy Programs:
Many people understand how important it is to build the self-esteem of
young people and working age people. But many people don't understand
the needs of the Elderly, Disabled and Wheelchair Rider populations.
Some see them as unimportant or nonproductive. But many people don't
understand how they feel and the benefits we all can gain from them. The
fact is, in the IGEI Gratitude Immersion World, we understand that these
populations have a great deal to offer. The fact is they have much they
can learn, much to feel, and much to share which can help us understand
gratitude in many ways.
There are many stories of
are not in wheelchairs but are bedridden,
who make their families' lives happy by their
cheerful, loving, giving, and self-esteem building personalities.
Everyone has something to give. But the fact is, no one can give from an
empty dish. No matter where you live there are others around you who
need positive energy. How do we give them a way to build their own self-esteem
so they can give to their world?
Through spiritual therapy you
will learn how to use gratitude as a power to build
your own self-esteem and reach out into the world to give to
others. One way is by being in the outdoors,
fishing and being close to nature where
your wholeness. By creating intergenerational
volunteer programs you practice the gratitude
skills you are learning. We share with them
the spiritual therapy programs of IGEI.
Spiritual Therapy is a spiritual healing method
that focuses on the rebuilding of inner wholeness. Techniques include
gratitude practices, self-esteem building, meditation, affirmations,
and reprogramming your subconscious mind. These techniques are
based on repetitive actions and interactions,
building new connections in your brain, to help yourself and
others to grow, become more creative and develop spiritual health.
Rebuilding your self-esteem is a vital part of spiritual therapy because
high self-esteem is the basis of wholeness.
Spiritual therapy is best performed in nature
because in nature you are able to reconnect with Mother Earth, become
grounded and feel the energy around us. Our original way of life was
immersed in the natural world. Once cities formed when agriculture
developed, the clearings of civilization through the development of
urbanization separated us from our connection with the earth. Spiritual
therapy through fishing is designed to reestablish that connection.
includes fishing as an
important ecospiritual component of IGEI.
Fishing teaches people to
hope, to keep trying over and over again.
