YES, GENUINE ONES TOO!
The evidence, quoted below, reveals that a new
group has arisen in our midst which teaches full-
blown pagan spiritualism.
In this brief study, you will be shown quotations
which, by their own statements, establish
the fact. But, even worse, they reveal that these
satanic concepts are being sponsored by several
of our church entities. Adventist new theology prepared
the way for this blatant form of, what you will
discover below, is actually witchcraft!
WHAT IS THE NAME OF THIS ORGANIZATION?—
It goes by a variety of names. “Partners in
Innovation” is the primary one. It also calls itself “SDA
Partners in Innovation.” Its home base is within the
Adventist denomination, where, unfortunately, it has
received an ever-widening, warm welcome.
WHO IS BEHIND THIS GROUP?—Leland Kaiser
is a local elder in good standing in the Brighton, Colorado, Seventh-day Adventist Church. His son is Kevin Kaiser, and his daughter is Leanne (pronounced “Lee Ann”) Kaiser Carlson. Both are also church members.
“Leland R. Kaiser, Ph.D., is a health care futurist,
an intuitive, . . and an organizational consultant.
He is a provacateur and mentor to many hospitals
and health care systems in the United States.
Dr. Kaiser is founder and president of Kaiser Consulting,
located in Brighton, CO.”—Gnostic Notes,
June 18, 2006. [His nickname is “Lee.”]
“Sarah Elizabeth Ingier and Kevin Kaiser are
catching people’s attention as two of the most exciting
teachers of our time. Their unique partnership
is fearless, full of energy, and grounded in bliss! As
clairvoyant healers, Sarah and Kevin have a unique
ability to help people evoke their gifts, heal their
relationships, and create the future.
“Kevin is cofounder of the Kaiser Institute, cofounder
of the Two Worlds Wisdom School, and core
faculty for the Spiritual Leadership Institute. He is
a coach to influential leaders across the country
interested in accelerating their personal evolution
and bringing the power of Spirit into their organizations. .
“Sarah is the founder of Presence, Inc., an organization
created to help the planet and culture step
into a new era of greater alignment, greater peace,
and greater healing . .
— AND SPONSORED BY THE CHURCH!
“Kevin and Sarah frequently co-lead workshops
on intuition, Subtile energies, healing, advanced
dream techniques, and astral travel. Tuition for
BLISS [their September 21-24, 2006, seminar in
Hawaii] is $1,400 . . BLISS Hawaii is a retreat into
the deeper caverns of our being.”—Ad sheet for
BLISS Hawaii seminar.
WHAT ADVENTIST ENTITIES ARE SPONSORING
THESE LECTURES?—The following statement
is found on one of its flyers (reprinted on page 7 of
this tract set). It lists some of our church sponsors,
as of October 2005:
“Sponsored by: Partners in Innovation - The Ohio
Conference of SDA; The Kettering Medical Center
Network; Office of Creative Ministries, the Columbia
Union Conference of SDA; . . Leadership & Educational
Administration Department, Andrews Uni-
versity.”—October 2005 Conference announcement.
In addition, the General Conference also had the
Kaisers present some of their concepts at the 2000
General Conference Session at Toronto. Those presentations provided the Kaisers with many contacts.
“Partners in Innovation, with the Ohio Conference
of Seventh-day Adventists as one of its primary
partners, proposes to address this need [to
expand our minds] by advancing the conversation
about the church of the future and by fostering research
and development of replicable models that
connect people with God, with each other, and with
their communities. Creating a compelling view of
tomorrow’s opportunities and moving preemptively
to secure the future require intentional effort. Partners
in Innovation provides individuals and organizations
the opportunity to guide, shape, and resource
this futuristic vision.
“Partners in Innovation commissions individuals
and groups to do research and development; . .
hosts national Innovation Conferences where the
concepts of innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurial
mission are explored; . . provides innovation
training for select individuals; . . creates awareness
within the SDA Church of trends, data and issues
relating to the Church’s future; . . creates and resources
high profile demonstration sites’ [and] . .
disseminates information to the Adventist Church
in North America on replicable models.—
PART TWO OF TWO Adventist Spiritualists
Continued from the preceding tract in this series
HOW DOES IT CARRY ON ITS WORK?—The
Kaisers claim to offer wonderful new insights, awareness,
and feelings which will be able to help you have
a more vibrant personality, clearer thinking, better de-
cision-making power, access to hidden powers within,
and contact with ancient powers without.
WHAT ARE ITS PUBLISHED TEACHINGS?—
Remarkably, these are not hidden, but brazenly
flaunted. Unfortunately, certain of our leaders, who
are solidly steeped in the new theology, are enamored
with them. When a person no longer needs to worry
about sin, the law of God, or the warnings of conscience,
he is prepared for spiritualism. And now it is
entering in full-bloom.

WARNING: MANY SHOULD NOT READ
BEYOND THIS POINT. THE FOLLOWING
PAGAN CONCEPTS ARE PROVIDED TO HELP
OUR PEOPLE KNOW WHAT IS BEING TAUGHT
BY THE KAISERS IN ADVENTIST SEMINARS.
Those totally unaware of what they will be getting
into may not be told in advance the emotion and mind-
changing experience they will encounter at a seminar.
“Surrendering into Power— . . Experience a different
kind of retreat—a retreat called BLISS! Just
being there is an act of surrender, because this retreat
has no agenda. And people have signed up for
it without knowing anything about what it is.”—
Kevin Kaiser, kaiser.net.
It is taught that all religions are the same, and lead
to the same destination, but under different names.
“What is the Path to God?—There are many paths
to God. Some approach God with a little different
emphasis like similarly structured but differently
named churches within Christianity. Some approach
God with more divergent mindsets such as
Buddhism and Christianity. These differences often
trouble us. They do not trouble God.”—Leland
Kaiser, Questions and Answers>Series, July 14,
The use of words which say nothing is a favorite
technique used by the mystery religions.
“Possibility Thinking—Wisdom walkers live in a
universe of infinite possibility waiting to happen. In
their universe, nothing has to be the way it is. There
is no one right way to do anything. For everything
that is, there are an infinite nunber of things that
could just as well be.”—Leland Kaiser, kaiser.net.
He says we are all god. This concept is mentioned
by many spiritualists who have found the secret wisdom
offered by the serpent in Genesis 3:5.
“Why am I Drawn so Strongly to Certain Persons?—
We are all different aspects of God reflecting
Itself in the third dimension. Poets, mystics,
Gnostics and adepts all describe this phenomenon
using different metaphors.”—Questions and Answers
>Series, June 20, 2006, kaiser.net.
In order to attract business leaders to let the Kaisers
hold highly paid corporate seminars, the Kaisers
offer bewildering concepts such as these, which appear
“Metaphysics of Management—The mental model
for business management is about to change. Future
managers will adopt a metaphysical view of
their profession and the world they live in. They
will easily cross over from the objective world of
facts and figures to the subtle world of intentions
and consciousness. They will live and work in two
worlds.”—Thoughts--Lee, May 1, 2006, kaiser.net.
Since nothing is evil to the Kaisers, there are no
evil thoughts. Any thought which comes to mind is
important, and you need to consider it carefully.
“Whatever the type of intuition you experience,
you should pay attention to its message. It has something
important to tell you . . As Spirit you are, as
soul you know, as mind you think, as emotions you
feel, as body you act. You can train yourself to receive
intuitive impressions at any of these five levels.
If all of the levels are in alignment, you have
achieved an integrated state of consciousness variously
known as [Christian] at-one-ment, atonement,
[Buddhist] enlightenment, or self-realization.”—
Leland Kaiser, Emerging Lifestyles magazine, Vol.
4, No. 2, Spring 2004.
When fully integregrated, you become infinite, part
of the divine mind—and everything else (pantheism).
At this level, your thoughts become infallible.
“At the highest level of your Being, you are Spirit—
an aspect of the Divine manifesting through you. At
this level you simply are and your awareness approaches
infinity. You know everything, because you
are a part of everything that exists. Spirit resides in
all things and therefore knows all things. An intuitive
message from your Spirit is is infallible.”—Ibid.
Your finite soul is connected to your eternal Spirit
by an infinite, incorruptible magnetic link, known as
the silver cord. The goal of your life should be to solidly
connect the two.
“A bridge between your soul and your Spirit is
present at birth in the form of a magneitc link (silver
cord). Your soul has a property of reflectivity and can
take the impress of your Spirit. This reflectivity increases
with your soul maturity. This magnetic link
permits your Spirit to operate through your lower
vehicles and express itself in your life. Your Spirit is
infinite and incorruptible. It is composed of neither
energy or matter, but rather is a unit of consciousness
that resides in the mind of God. Your soul is
finite and corruptible. It is composed of subatomic
matter. The goal of your life on earth is to meld your
Spirit and soul into one eternal monad.”—Ibid.
Your Spirit can enable you to leave your body and
travel across space and time.
“The bridge between soul and body permits the
Spirit to alter your physiological functions and impact
matter outside your body. Herein lies the seat of
phenomena such as healing, visions, out-of-body experiences, near death experiences, telephathy, lucid
dreams, and interdimensional travel.”—Ibid.
You have spirit guides which you need to listen to;
for their messages are important. They will help you
with whatever you might consider doing. (Notice that,
because there is no evil, every thought that comes into
your mind is good.)
“You attract beings (angels, guides, and inner teachers)
from higher dimensions who share your interest.
Because they are in sympathy with your intentions,
they form a telepathic link with your higher
mind . . These Guardians of the human race plant
seeds in your mind . . You are preparing vehicles for
intuitive communication with higher spiritual intelligences.”—Ibid.
If you will let them, the sun and moon in the sky will
provide you with special guidance.
“The Sun represents the male assertive power and
the Moon represents the female receptive power . .
Intuition is Moon power . . Ideally both females and
males have their Sun and Moon equally balanced.
This is the goal of symmetrical development . . How
do you develop your Moon power? . . Go out at night,
gaze at the Moon, and feel its rays penetrate your
soul. With intention, withdraw your outer directed
assertive power and imagine windows in your soul
with light streaming through them.”—Leland Kaiser,
Intuition Series, 34, kaiser.net.
All the thoughts of dead people are floating around
the Earth, and you can tune in to them.
“The Thought Stream—Surrounding the earth is
a vast thought stream that contains the thoughts of
all people throughout all time. It is the thought history
of the Planet Earth. In deep meditation you can
enter this stream . . To accelerate the evolution of our
planet, highly developed spiritual beings ‘seed’ our
thought stream. These seed thoughts can be accessed
and built-out by spiritual seekers in their meditations.
Thus, a great deal of instruction is available to you.
“You can also ‘return’ to your favorite period of history
and enjoy the ‘current’ thinking of people who
live there. Eventually, this methodology will enable
us to correct our history books. Because of the vested
interests of the people who write history, and their
followers,—particularly religious groups—it will take
a lot of spiritual maturity to accept the revisions. In
most cases, history did not happen as it is re-
corded.”—Leland Kaiser, Intuition Series, August
17, 2005, kaiser.net.
You can become one of the ancient gods.
“Often they are embodied as the gods of the cultures.
Although their names change, the energy-essence/
entities are the same. For instance, Hermes,
Mercury, Thoth, and Enoch are all the same energy/
essence . . By identifying with heroes of the past, you
tap into their collective archetypal energies which are
still active and alive in the spiritual realms . . One of
my favorite archetypal [sic] is Thoth, the [ancient
Egyptian] god of wisdom . . Thoth is not a person,
but rather an energy field built up over the years. It
is a giant reservoir of wisdom developed by the students
of Thoth . . Surround yourself with pictures,
relics and images of this mythic personage. View yourself
as a living incarnation of him.”—Leland Kaiser,
Gnostic Notes, June 18, 2006, on one of his web-
In order to fully become this kind of super-god, you need to open your mind, without reservation, to what ever the spirit world wants to teach you.
“Beginner’s Mind—The term beginner’s mind
comes from Zen. It refers to the mind that is clear no
judgments, no labels, no mental structure. The
mind is clear, open, and receptive . . All intuitive
impulses are received. Nothing is blocked or lost.
The analytical mind [including the conscience] is
never activated. There are no reactions of fear or
anger. There is a simple acceptance of ‘what is.’ . .
This will be a challenge, since to achieve a beginner’s
mind you will have to do a lot of unlearning. It means
setting aside your judgments . . You will not hear
words . . They come to you.”—Lee Kaiser, “Thoth.”
[That is the name Leland printed at the bottom of
this article! He believes he is the reincarnated god
Thoth was the Egyptian hawk-headed god who helped Isis work the ritual to bring Osiris back from the dead. The magical powers of Thoth were said to be very great. In her picture in a seminar ad, Leanne displays the grotesque hand sign for Zen. In addition to their practice of Egyptian and Eastern religions, according to the following definition, the Kaisers are also practitioners of Zen Buddhism.
“1. Zen is a Japanese Buddhist sect which differs
from other Buddhist sects by stressing enlightenment,
thought, intuition, and contemplation, rather
than through the Buddhist scriptures. 2. Silent Buddhist
When you attend one of Kaiser’s Adventist training seminars, you may become involved in an actual group seance, sitting in a circle, while awaiting the spirits to individually speak to each person in the group.
“Imagine how hard it is to adopt a beginner’s mind
when you come to a meeting . . Your suggestion that
the group enter a meditative state and clear their
minds of all thoughts and preconceptions may not
be well received . . You do not generate the thoughts.
They come to you because you have cleared the stage
and invited them to appear.”—Leland Kaiser, Beginner’s
Kaiser will suggest that the group focus on a crucifix, a picture of an Egyptian god, or a Hindu or Buddhist symbol; so, as expectantly, they “call upon the
symbol,”—and “energy” will flow into them.
“Visions Channel Psychic Energy—Visions channel
psychic energy from subtle spiritual realms to
our high density third dimensional world . . There is
tremendous power in traditional images or symbols.
They are connected to thought forms that have been
energized over the ages and like a battery hold their
energy until it is discharged by appropriate human
receivers. A group of people calling upon the symbol
are energized by it. As they become mentally and
emotionally involved with the symbol, they add their
energy to it. The vision thus feeds the people and is
fed by them. A two-way energy relationship exists
between symbols and people.”—Leland Kaiser, Visioning-25, Kaiser.net.
In order to confuse your mind and disorient your thinking even more, at these Adventist seminars you will be taught that there are many realities, of which we are usually aware of only one,—and you can learn how to switch between one and another.
“Reality is a Kaleidoscope—There are many realities
. . Each is real for you when you are inside it and
unreal to you when you are outside it . . Any other
creature that tunes itself to the new reality can enter it
and participate with whoever occupies it. It becames a
shared reality. You see this with UFOs that enter our
reality tunnel and participate with us . .
“When he comes close enough to a ‘sleeping’ probable
reality, he awakens it. With appropriate invocation
it begins its descent into the world of form. The
image will shimmer and change shapes many times
as the mind of the visionary plays upon it. Finally, it
assumes a somewhat stable form and is ready for
further ‘densification.’ When sufficiently densified, it
enters the thought streams and can be perceived by
anyone ‘fishing the stream.’ ”—Leland Kaiser, Visioning-
Kaiser teaches how to disconnect from this world and ascend into other worlds.
“The Universe is One Fabric—The visionary understands
the interconnected fabric of reality. This
permits him to perceive existing linkages and potential
linkages among components of the universe. Often
a vision is simply a new way of linking components
together . . The visionary ascends the planes
of consciousness to perceive subtle relationships that
exist on the plane of mind, but are not yet reflected
into the physical plane for manifestation. Even more
subtle ties exist on the spiritual planes beyond the planes of the mind. Therefore, the power of the visionary
is his power to ‘disconnect’ from the physical
plane and ascend through other planes of consciousness.
He does this in an altered state of consciousness.”—
Leland Kaiser, Visioning-3, Kaiser.net.
Kaiser teaches Adventists how they can individually
summon ancient pagan idols and creatures into
their minds. They will thus be enabled to begin working
with magic. Studying books and rituals on magic
will greatly help them do this.
“Everything in existence has a spiritual signature,
which is a symbol. To invoke the symbol is to summon
the creature it represents. This, of course, is
the basis for all sacred magic. Manipulating symbols
is manipulating the energies they contain and
transmit. Ancient symbols still carry a full charge of
energy and can be summoned as allies.
“As a worker in the realms of light, you need to
understand both universal symbolism and your own
personal symbolism. Begin to understand your personal
symbolism by studying your day and night
dreams. Pick up a book on mythology and study the
symbols utilized. Develop a rich vocabulary of symbols
by studying Tarot, Kabbalah.”—Leland Kaiser,
Gnostic Notes, Increasing Symbolic Intelligence,
June 19, 2006.
Tarot cards are used by witches in fortune-telling
and predicting the future. The Kabbalah are books written
by Jewish spiritualists during the Dark Ages.
Kaiser teaches how to have out-of-body experiences,
and fly through the air and enter other dimensions and
universes. In the following summary, in which he explains
the powers you will receive after your “soul initiation,”
he clearly shows he is a master at witchcraft.
Only a witch claims to do these things:
“The new and desired spiritual gift is usually received
in a soul initiation. With the new gift you move
forward in grade and responsibility.
“In summary, you can evoke the higher gifts when
your labors as a world worker require them. These
gifts include but are not limited to telepathy; out-ofbody
travel; time travel; healing; manifestation; control
over the elements of air, fire, earth and water;
extrasensory perception; animal and plant communication; alchemical transmutation of substance;
reading living energy fields; and reading the akashic
records.”—Leland Kaiser. [“Akashic” is a Tibetan
word, meaning “Hidden Library of Records.”]
