What is Soul University?

We’re RADICALLY different here.  No exams.  No grades.

SU offers no degrees or diplomas. Discovering (then experiencing) answers to two ancient questions:

    • who am I?
    • what am I here to do?

replaces exams, papers, diplomas and degrees.

Your graduation day happens when you suddenly realize you (through first-hand experiential [actual] learning [results]) your:

    • massively improved confidence naturally inspires others to respect and honor you, your time and talents.
    • exponentially growing compassion consistently reminds you to observe more and judge less.
    • capacity to receive and give – equally – allows you to love more unconditionally – daily.
    • sense of self-worth remains stable and healthy even in times of drama or trauma.

On this journey you’ll learn, laugh, cry as well as grow more healthy, wealthy and wise. How? We combine our unique style of learning with the efficacy of time-tested master-mind groups.

How SU Masters programs work . . .

Soul Dancer (SU Founder) applies:

  • his Masters in Social Work with
  • over four decades of advanced spiritual teachings
    • as a monk in three orders
    • shaman in four traditions
  • into a unique teaching style to release doubt, guilt, shame and worry at their root level(s).

As each unhealthy habit consumes less resources (time, money, health, etc.) you experience more energy to learn, laugh and grow more healthy wealthy and wise. Based on a decade of documented results (listen to actual classes here and here) we challenge you see (actually hear) for yourself how students grow more in less time imaginable.

Amazing right!

Skeptics – heads up! Be more skeptical of your ability to successfully clear the requirements to make it into our masters programSU declines eight out of ten applicants. Declined applicants may still take SU classes – independently – using our self-study program.

Why do we decline so many Master applicants? SU approves or declines access to masters programs based on how other active members RATE YOUR PERFORMANCE in their class(es) during your first 90 days (trial / probation period).

History has show us that within the first 90 days of taking classes – those who lack a gut-level craving to genuinely learn who they are (thus their purpose in life) will drop out of class.

  • We’re not surprised at high drop-out levels.
  • Learning who we are and why we’re here is one of the most challenging tasks we face!
  • Most souls simply work to survive (work a J.O.B. for 40 – or more years).
  • Few souls do the incredibly necessary (challenging) work to wake-up to their full potential – to THRIVE!
  • Dropouts will avoid hearing “Based on peer review(s) we must decline your program application.”

Which way of living sounds more appealing to you?

A) Just surviving (what most people you know – do).

B) THRIVING (what FEW people – who you MAY know – do)!

After your initial 90 days – IF you qualify to join Soul University – you (along with a other vetted team members) will continue a journey together. Based on a decade of documented results (available here and here) we know you and your team will experience significant growth on six levels: personal, social, emotional, professional, financial, spiritual.

Growth on these six levels is worth more than the SU’s monthly fee of $225.00. 

Our fee screens out applicants prone to procrastination.  

Your fees provides SU with capital to build a profitable business that YOU OWN!  How’s that for doubling down on being unique!  

To qualify to join Soul University’s Masters level program (that builds a profitable business for you) . . .

  • Your first 90 days in SU determines your application outcome. Work hard. Pay your tuition on time. Become a valued team player – you’re in. During your first 90 days you’ll rate other team members. Other team members (also on probation) will rate you – too!
  • Slack off (show up late – or unprepared – for class)? Dilly-dally with your tuition payments? Purposefully create drama and chaos for team members to deal with? Nope. Done. Come back after you sort things out.

We start with a premise rooted in an ancient Greek aphorism: “Know thyself.Our opening premise (to know yourself) is less effort when free from the shackles of doubt, guilt, shame and worry.

Rewards to knowing yourself well, free of judgment, includes living a more happy, healthy, unconditionally loving life.

I am so grateful to Marsha Sortino for introducing me to SU and the Pay Me What I’m Worth course. That one-year journey of exploring “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?” has helped me grow more in 18 months than any other course I have taken over 20+ years as a student of Personal Growth and Development. The secret? The secret to my growth has been deeply exploring all aspects of my life, but doing so while consciously letting go of doubt, guilt, shame and worry. Unlocking the fear based emotions changes the way I now see my past, present and future. It now looks a whole lot like being present and allowing, rather than hiding away peaces of my past for fear that you might not like me. Come learn with me and everyone in the SU family. We enthusiastically welcome you.

Aloha David! WOW! The fact that you willingly chose to shift from a mentality of “been there, done it, know it all” to a reality that there’s always more to explore, learn and grow – blows me away! You passion to serve genuinely, gracefully, peacefully reminds me of the truth in Nelson Mandela’s words of wisdom . . . “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” In gratitude I bow to you for being a powerful change agent!

Aloha David! Thank you!! I have enjoyed my journey with you and seeing your exponential growth! It’s been amazing to see your transformation! I also feel the same as you and hold this view that this Pay Me What I Am Worth journey has helped me to grow in ways I would never have imagined over other courses of personal development I have taken throughout the years!! I’m learning everyday and you’ve also helped me to see myself!! I am forever grateful and am happy your came on board for this awesome journey!! Mahalo nui loa!
