Discover How You, Too, Along with a Community of Like-Minded Souls,
Can Activate Your Power as a Modern-Day Mystic and
Be of True Service to the World with Ease, Joy and Playfulness.
The famed Indian philosopher and yogi mystic, Sri Aurobindo once said, “The animal was the laboratory for the evolution of the human. And the human must similarly be the laboratory for the creation of the super human.”
It’s an inspiring call for evolution, for us to transcend into greater heights towards the betterment of humanity and our planet.
And now more than ever, thanks to rapid innovation and new tools, we’re in an accelerated process of creating a new earth, and an empowered world.
But how can you leverage this historic opportunity to fulfill the call of evolution? And what did Sri Aurobindo mean by “super human”?
As it is, it’s sometimes hard for you to just be merely human!
- You can struggle with the day-to-day stresses of your work and family life
- You sometimes have difficulty finding the time for spiritual practices
- And at times, you just want to give up and surrender to a ho-hum life
What it means to become “super human” or even the Ultimate Human is this:
It simply means living your divinity, radiantly open and at ease–but not “larger than life” – just filled with total reverence for life.
And now, just like hundreds of students who have worked with Bill Bauman, you can be well on your way to becoming the Ultimate You.
If you’re like most people in The Shift Network, you’ve done your work on healing emotional wounds, embracing your power and awakening spiritually. And you’re now ready for the next step – fuller freedom, greater vision and unity with all of life.
Who or what is the Ultimate You?
It’s the “you” that connects all the way from the “highest” octave to your most raw “primal self.”
It’s the full spectrum of your divinity, expressed in the way you relate with the world, at work and at play, at home and in your community.
It is the “you” that embodies love, freedom and creativity.
It is the “you” open to the ever-expanding possibilities for you and your life.
Join modern-day mystic Bill Bauman for The Ultimate Human Course and he will help you unlock the as-yet-undiscovered door to your Ultimate Self.
An engaging course with a humorous and inspiring teacher who will help propel you into the next and perhaps most important phase of your transformational journey.
The world needs you to be your most evolved self – as we’re in an accelerated process of creating a new earth, an empowered world and a freer humanity.
And this course, gives you the tools to cocreate this global awakening – helping you live as a divine being, radiantly open and at ease.
Through his remarkable journey as a mystic and teacher, Bill Bauman has come to model the full, free, unlimited and empowered human being he describes as the Ultimate Human.
A spiritual leader for more than 25 years and known for his playful and engaging style, Bill’s work is based on a spontaneous vision of the Ultimate Human he had many years ago, and his experiences as a former Catholic priest, psychologist, business consultant and peace activist.
He’s become known among top transformational leaders like Jack Canfield and Marci Shimoff as the “teacher’s teacher” among spiritual teachers.
And now he’s called to join us again at The Shift Network and support you in becoming your most free, full and empowered self.
Drawing from a remarkable mastery of a multi-dimensional life, Bill’s gift is to transmit blessings, empowering you with love for the full you and a steadfast dedication to your ultimate freedom.
He has custom-designed this experiential, love-centered course to support your personal evolution – which, in turn, supports the evolution of our world!
This course is vital for you if you are someone who....
- Wants to relax into life, knowing and trusting that you are on track
- Feels a deep calling to be all that you were created to be
- Is ready to courageously embrace the most exciting phase yet of your personal journey
- Would like your full spectrum self to emerge and are open to being created anew
- Wants to experience the source of infinite love and light that live in every cell of your body

How You Will Benefit

- Experience daily life with ease and grace – frustrations and resistance melt away
- Become a vessel for the love and freedom you desire – and be of true service to the world with joy and playfulness

An Important Message from Bill Bauman
Hello and welcome!
I’m delighted to meet you – to connect, bond and unite with you in this joyous excursion.
This eight-week course is all about you – your magical magnificence, endless creativity and dynamic power. I’m dedicated to making it an experience that will transform your life.
About 25 years ago I had an unexpected vision. It was that of a new human being – a person who appeared to me as remarkably expansive, evolved and masterful.
In hindsight I realized that I was observing a vision of my future self and, yes, your future self. I would eventually come to call this person: the Ultimate Human.
You and I are spiritually designed to be the leaders of our evolving world, the creators of the next steps of our human destiny.
In the years since I had that vision, my own powerful path has re-created me several times over into my own ultimacy, and now my privileged role is to love, train and initiate others into their ultimate self.
In all my contacts with people I use concepts as an excuse to empower and processes as a pathway for personal expansion.
I’m all about YOUR growth, transformation and awakening.
Life has wisely kept me reserved mostly for the people who are truly committed – those who feel a deep calling to be all they were created to be, those who are open to being created anew into their evolving ultimate self.
Are you called to be everything you possibly can be?
Is there an ultimate self within you, just waiting for you to open the inner door and let that full self emerge?
If so, are you ready for a touching, loving exploration into the dynamic facets of your own ultimacy?
And finally, are you ready to be initiated into that remarkable and all-powerful self?
This course is that initiation.
If you choose to join me and the other participants, you’ll discover in our collective adventure a loving bond that sacredly flows among us, and a magical power that unconditionally supports us.
Also, you’ll find yourself more personally awakened by life’s endless wonder and creation’s inter-dimensional blessings.
I am honored to serve as your guide in this expansive tour of your endless magnificence.
Together, we will celebrate you – as you embrace, and become, your own ultimate self.
What You’ll Learn: Course Overview
Every class in The Ultimate Human is 90 minutes and has four components: an in-depth presentation from Bill; a time for questions, sharing and discussion; a guided meditation led by Bill; and 30 minutes of group experiential exercises.
Week 1: Unveiling the Ultimate Human in You (June 12)
In this first week we begin the incredible journey of living as the Ultimate Human. We embrace the joy and freedom that underlie our creative explorations. Then we open our hearts to these questions:
- Who and what is an ultimate human being? Is it you?
- What’s involved in becoming an ultimate human being?
- What qualities do you need to lead yourself into your ultimate self?
This week will also give you a tour of the glorious four dimensions (or worlds) that await your personal participation and mastery: the experiential worlds of the mystical, consciousness, the primal and energy. At the end, you will be initiated into the loving arms of your own ultimate self.
Week 2: Being Mystical: The Endless Power of Your Spiritual Self (June 19)
With your own spirit leading you into the undiscovered fullness of your mystical nature, this week you will explore and relish:
- Mystery’s beautiful realm – that space “out there” and within you where non-linear magic happens
- The vast, unending light field of creation, where “waves” mysteriously turn into particles of aliveness and blessings emanate everywhere
- Creation’s center, both in the multi-verse and within your own soul, wherein you become being itself: the infinite essence and sacred silence that resides at our core
- The divinity of every molecule and element of creation, especially of yourself
- The unity of all creation and your amazing interconnectedness with everything, everywhere
Week 3: Exploring the Many Dimensions of Consciousness (June 26)
This week you will learn about Bill’s visionary perspective on the most remarkable gift that fills our light field: our conscious awareness. As you explore the wondrous dimensions of this awareness, you will be filled with its precious gifts:
- Spiritual power of your super-conscious awareness: you will learn how to use the light waves of your mystical nature (think Luke Skywalker here) as you discover how to merge with your mystical consciousness and move it into your humanness
- The symbolic power of your sub-conscious awareness: here we know that life is illusion and dream. You will play in its maya with inventive imagination and play – here is where we have fun!
- Primal power of your unconscious awareness: in this vast world of oneness with the human family (think Carl Jung’s collective unconscious), we explore the most basic myths and archetypes of human living – good and evil, light and dark. And in doing so you will discover the hidden doorway to unity with all of life.
- Unexplored power of your conscious awareness: over and above what we already know about our conscious mind’s logic, you will discover untold creativity, imagination and capacity for creating your life.
Week 4: The Spiritual Gifts of Your Primal Nature (July 3)
Your primal nature is the least explored and understood aspect of being human. Yet, it’s a powerful source of power and fullness; indeed, it’s a true pathway to God. Hidden within its vast and endless depths – most of which are beautifully alive and well in our lower chakras – are these treasures that you’ll discover:
- Universal absolute power in the form of your earthy, elemental, primal energies
- Creative juice and the generative “big bang” of life itself, customized to the special person that you are
- A mostly undiscovered doorway to the Absolute, a doorway where humanness meets divinity, where three-dimensionality meets multiple-dimensionality
- Loving gifts of earth’s four elements: earth’s grounding, air’s vitality, fire’s aliveness and water’s flow – you will experience them bringing you alive in ways that renew and invigorate you
- The possibilities of mastery – yes, mastery, in which you merge with the light within your primal core – it’s completely possible, and we’ll do it.
Week 5: Being Fully Alive: Exploring your Energy, Vitality and Life Force (July 10)
According to the findings of science, you have enough energy in your body to melt all the oceans of the earth. You’re endlessly energy-rich.
Yet few of us know how to merge with those energies or express them with such potency. You will uncover your energetic richness, own your energy’s spiritual nature and explore its amazing magic to create your personal destiny. Specifically, you will:
- Claim the full aliveness of your body, chakras and auric field
- Learn the unique language of energy as you listen with new ears to your “feelings”
- Completely surrender to the life-force of love, as it invites you into its energetic embrace and transforms you into a love-centered being
- Enjoy every breath of chi-filled air, feel the heartbeat of the planet in your heart’s beating and celebrate the aliveness of life everywhere
- Become your powerful feelings where you experience everything: the ups and downs, joys and sorrows, ecstasies and pains – with full embrace, without complaint, with power. Through it all, you will become the liberating power of those feelings.
Week 6: You as an Ultimate Human: The Fine Art of Fully Becoming your Mystical, Aware, Primal, Energy-Rich Self (July 17)
Since this course is so experiential and personal, this week’s focus is on you and your own ultimate nature. In “putting it all together,” we will look deeply into the how-to of you becoming your ultimate self – exploring the nitty-gritty of living your ultimate freedom.
Practical exercise and applications will support you as you let go into the ultimacy of life, embrace the power of your consciousness, accept the gifts of your primal depths, and experience the wonders of your personal energy. More specifically, you will:
- Become spiritually alive, allowing the infinite love of creation to fill you with the light of your mystical nature
- Become much more fully identified with your “other” realms of consciousness: the sub-conscious and un-conscious worlds of yet undiscovered blessings
- Bring every energy – from life’s bigger realms to your own energy field’s richness, into your being – thereby experiencing creation’s innate vitality and beauty
- Identify with your primal and generative “big bang,” as you witness the chi of creation creating you anew like never before
Week 7: Mastering the Sticky Points: Pain and Suffering, Good and Evil, Duality and Individuality (July 24)
This week’s time together may be the best yet. Here is where you finally face, and deal in depth with, those traditionally problematic themes that keep many of us stuck in the historical human mud. You will compassionately look at:
- Human pain and suffering. (Bill will share his unique vision and worldview about these unexplainable human issues.) You’ll get to know pain and suffering in a fresh way and learn to befriend them and use them to create yourself anew every day.
- Good and evil, light and dark – the story-filled phenomenon that few of us know how to wrap our heads around. We’ll demythologize this story that has been a part of our unconscious beliefs since Adam and Eve, and then re-invent it into a story of creation and possibility.
- Duality and individuality – most of us try to move beyond these concepts in order to enter a world of oneness and ground ourselves in a state of pure being. You’ll look at a new paradigm: one that brings a unified field and state of pure being into your humanness, to merge with your individuality.
Week 8: Your Personal Application: Taking Charge of Your Own Ultimacy (July 31)
We’ve taken this touching journey together, and now you have the exciting privilege of living masterfully as a full and authentic Ultimate Human. Congratulations!
This week is our rite of initiation in which we officially celebrate your fuller identity as your own ultimate self. Bill will also respond to your personal needs and questions as part of this final class together.

About Bill Bauman, Ph.D.
To describe Bill Bauman is a relatively impossible task. People have called him a unique and inspiring human presence, a selfless and humble being. As you experience Bill, however, you find that he possesses a compelling giftedness, a beyond-words quality that has deeply touched and transformed the lives of countless people.
Bill’s loving heart is at the forefront of his every interaction. His expansive vision moves people to hear their own truth most compellingly. His transformational gifts are deeply healing and magically empowering. His charismatic touch awakens people to claim their fullest freedom. And his own personal ultimacy is an inspiration for and mirror of the “ultimate human” that we all can become.
Bill was a Catholic priest in the 1960s, a practicing psychologist from the ‘70s to the ‘90s, a business consultant and leader for two decades, a noted leader in the global peace movement in the ‘90s and a spiritual leader from the ‘80s to today. Currently, Bill has combined these many systems into a dynamic and life-changing approach that he now calls “the ultimate human” and “the ultimate leader.” In this approach, he is a noted trainer, heartfelt speaker, loving motivator and visionary of life’s possibilities.
With a doctorate in Counseling Psychology, a Master’s degree in Theology, and a Bachelor’s in Philosophy, Bill embraces life from a broad perspective and expansive vision. Thousands of people have attended Bill’s seminars on personal empowerment, dynamic leadership, love and relationships, personal and spiritual growth, and empowered healing-which he has led nationally and internationally over the past 30 years. He has given hundreds of growth-oriented seminars, trainings and presentations to groups of every size.
A proven entrepreneur, Bill started and led three profitable private businesses, as well as his own successful private practice as a psychologist. Also, with his adored wife Donna, he founded and led two non-profit organizations-Washington, DC’s World Peace Institute (through the 1990’s) and The Center for Soulful Living (through the 2000’s).
He has recently authored two groundbreaking books: Oz Power: How to click your heels and take total charge of your life (2005), and Soul Vision: A modern mystic looks at life through the eyes of the soul (2009). He is currently writing a book on (you guessed it!) the Ultimate Human.
