D.O.M.E., the Inner Guide Meditation Center

D.O.M.E., the Inner Guide Meditation Center, was founded in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 1975 around the teachings of Ed Steinbrecher who had brought together a group with a diverse interest in occult matters including astrology, I Ching, the tarot, Jungian psychology, and meditation. It moved to its present location in Los Angeles, California, in 1984. D.O.M.E. stands for a latin phrase, "Dei Omnes Munda Edunt," translated as, "All the Gods/Goddesses bring forth/eat the worlds." The Inner Guide is described as an individual's lost teacher who stands ready to lead the seeker along the inward spiritual path toward the union with the higher self and to the mystic experience of oneness. The Inner Guide teaches practical ways to create harmony and balance by cooperating with the Universal Archetypes (familiar from Jungian thought), considered the principles of spirit and nature.

The actual practice of the Inner Guide Meditation Center is found in Steinbrecher's book, The Inner Guide Meditation: A Spiritual Technology for the 21st Century, originally published in 1975. The book introduces the Inner Guide Meditation and prepares the individual for initiation into the experience in which he/she is assisted to make contact with a guide and with some of the universal archetypes.

The center in Los Angeles offers a wide range of services designed to assist individuals in exploring their inner self. Those trained in Inner Guide techniques may assist people going through various distressful life situations such as divorce or lawsuits, but place an emphasis on helping people develop better relationships and find success in their business or professional life. More metaphysical sessions are provided for exploration of past lives. Inner Guide practitioners also offer a full range of astrological and tarot counseling, including a special service for discovering the best dates for important actions (wedding, signing a contract, beginning a new project, etc.).

The Inner Guide Meditation Center may be contacted at P.O. Box 46146, Los Angeles, CA 90046-0146. It holds its meetings at the D.O.M.E. Meeting House (1526 N. Fairfax Ave.) in Los Angeles. It supports a webpage at http://www.dome-igm.com/.
