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

WHY BECOME A MEMBER OF
We all want our lives to
provide us with four things
Community, Structure, Meaning
and a Superordinate Goal.
COMMUNITY - to feel we
belong. It could
involve being willing to provide leadership to
STRUCTURE - to know what
to do and how to do what we want to do;
- to know that what we are doing is meaningful, and
that our lives are more than just passing through
SUPERORDINATE GOAL -
to give to our world in a way that does not mean
gain for ourselves. It involves giving of
ourselves to someone or something outside our family
or friends. An example would be a plan to build a
hospital in a developing country, a water well for a
community, or a project to grow plants for food for
people and animals, for firewood and for industry.
You gain no income from it, but you provide
something for people who need it and who could not
obtain it for themselves.
Why is becoming a member of
IGEI so important to our world? IGEI is dedicated to
changing the consciousness of people so they become
aware of their blessings. They begin to actively
show gratitude to each other and to our world.
Gratitude leads to kindness and compassion for those
around us and for who have less than we do. We
replace greed with gratitude.
Gratitude leads us to be
thankful for our world and its freedoms and joys and
to seek to provide these same joys to others. One of
the ways we do that is by sending gratitude wishes.
And in order to make our efforts work, we need many
people to participate. We need a whole cadre of
people to be gratitude healers of the spirit who
build the self-esteem of others in their world.
We need a whole group of people
sending gratitude wishes. We need whole groups of
people being more loving and saying happy things to
others. In other words, there is absolutely no way
one or two persons can possible bring this new
gratitude consciousness to our world. Only as we
join with others who are grateful can we hope to
transform our world to peaceful and positive
lifestyles. That is, lifestyles based on always
Your Invitation To Spread The

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.
