Joshua David Stone
Joshua David Stone (December 1953–August 2005)
"Dr Joshua David Stone was one of the most influential Spiritual teachers, leaders and forerunners of our time. He had a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and was a licensed Marriage, Family and Child Counselor in California, USA.
"He served as Official Spokesperson for the Planetary Ascension Movement and made his mark in the Consciousness Community as a prolific writer, authoring the 15-volume Easy to Read Encyclopedia of the Spiritual Path, published in several languages, as well as eight major Enlightened Master Training Courses and several comprehensive Training Programs ranging from channeling, the psychology of astrology, the Book of Life of God, to his legendary 2,000 page Counseling Manual, and much, much more.
"He also brought Wesak to the West, hosting ten Wesak Celebrations in Mount Shasta, California, for thousands of people around the world, and he introduced inspired ideas such as striving for “integrated full spectrum prism consciousness” to become a perfect living reflection of our Creator and transcending the negative ego mind as a requirement to realize our Divinity.
"He was a pioneer in the field of Spiritual psychology and authored the concept of integrated ascension as well as the noble ideal of striving to become an Integrated Ascended Master, both terms which he coined to stress the importance of mastering and integrating the Spiritual, psychological and physical/Earthly aspects of self to follow an integrated and balanced approach to Self and God Realization.
"The I AM University is today a global Austrian-based educational institution with a single focus: to provide those who can grasp the noble ideal of pioneering in this world as a living Integrated Enlightened Master with all the training and tools they need to fulfill this lofty call.
"Today, the I AM University is the one and only Integrated Ascended Master Training Facility in this world. It stands firmly on the foundation of a comprehensive and ever-expanding curriculum which Dr Stone dedicated his life creating.
"In 2005, Dr Joshua David Stone passed over to the Spirit world where he continues to Spiritually support the expansion of the I AM University the continuation of which he entrusted into the hands of Gloria Excelsias, his long-term personal assistant, good friend and protégé."
"On a spiritual level he anchors what is called "Melchizedek Synthesis Light Ashram", which is an integrated inner and outer plane ashram representing all paths to God. Serving as a spokesman for the Planetary Ascension movement, Dr. Stone's spiritual lineage is directly linked to Djwkhal Khul, Kuthumi, Lord Maitreya, Lord Melchizedek and the Mahatma. He also feels a very close connection with the Divine Mother; Metatron, Lord Buddha as well as a deep devotion to Sathya Sai Baba." 
In the mid-1990s, Stone became the first ascended master teachings teacher ever to admit a UFO related entity, Ashtar (whom he referred to as the Master Ashtar), to the ranks of the ascended masters, by incorporating the teachings of the medium Tuella into his own teachings. wiki
The Encyclopedia of the Spiritual Path consists of fifteen books (published between 1994 and 2005) and an index in this ongoing series on the subject of ascension, self-realization and a further deepening of ascended-master teachings. They were all published by Light Technology Publishing.
