Founders

Ron Friedman, MD, and Victoria Friedman are visionaries, pioneers and teachers in the field of Collective Evolutionary Consciousness and Co-Founders of Vistar Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to exploring the Power and Potential of Collective Intelligence. Ron, a Pathologist, and Victoria, a Ceramic Artist, developed the evolutionary Vistar Method ™, a structured meeting format for collective awakening, co-creativity and conscious communication.  They have 30 years experience with intensive spiritual group work and train Vistar Circle Leaders. They provide Vistar Method Trainings in teleconferences on-line and in person and lead Collective Awakening Circles. Victoria and Ron produce large and small-scale events that inspire and involve people in new creative forms of spiritual expression, with a focus on connectivity and conscious culture.  Victoria and Ron studied with teachers of “The Work” of G.I. Gurdjieff, Rudolph Steiner, and the Non-Dual traditions. The synthesis of the experience with these teachings led to the founding of Vistar Foundation. Victoria is the author of  “SPIRIT DOODLING: The Effortless Expression of No-Mind” available at www.spiritdoodling.com. Ron’s new poetry book, “unaccustomed looking: insight on the path” launched in June 2014.   www.vistarfoundation.org.

Authenticity

We search in a lifetime for a statement so true, that nothing

else matters but its expression.

This birth from within awaits its moment of ripening and nothing may hasten or halt its emergence.

When delivered, it finds itself free of any affirmation of its being, so close to what we truly are that it shares in the immortality of its creator.

Be patient then with this Divine Child, and know that it lives

in your marrow, in the jeweled vaults of your heart,

in the starlit DNA that was the blueprint

for your appearance.
