IMM Moving Forward
Message from Dean J. Selimos
Dr. Masters may have passed away physically, but we know he has transitioned into spirit, soaring beyond our physical plane in unification with Divine Universe.
Dr. Masters was a father figure, Dr. Masters was a friend, and Dr. Masters was a teacher in metaphysics. During my 25 years of knowing Dr. Masters, his teachings and wisdom have grown to a worldwide ministry in metaphysics. In our many dialogues on many subjects, including metaphysics, he has emphasized nurturing disciples of the Spirit, the Universal Christ-Mind.
Prior to his transition into the divine spirit, he made appointments for the International Metaphysical Ministry, the parent body of the Educational University System. Those appointed are as follows:
- Michelle A. Behr, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors, with sixteen years of experience as IMM Office Manager and Administrator.
- Dean J. Selimos, Esq., President of the International Metaphysical Ministry and Member of the Board of Directors, with twenty-five years of experience as IMM Corporate Attorney.
- Lydia L. Reineck, Ph.D., President of the University Educational Systems–the University of Metaphysics and the University of Sedona, with two years of experience as Thesis/Dissertation Professor with IMM.
- Mary E. Gladieux, Member of the Board of Directors and Office Manager, with five years of experience as Executive Assistant with IMM.
Dr. Masters has built from his decades of loyalty and devotion to the metaphysical ministry a strong and enduring foundation. The organization, with its Board of Directors, Officers, and support staff continue to work together to perpetuate the teachings of Dr. Masters’ Metaphysical Ministry into the future.
We are together in Love with Dr. Masters.
And so it is!
Message from Michelle A. Behr
We extend our gratitude to all our members for the outpouring of love and support we have received since Dr. Masters made his peaceful transition to a different plane of existence. He might not be with us in person, but his presence and influence continues to guide and lead us from above.
I had the privilege of working closely with Dr. Masters as the Office Manager/Administrator for 16 years and observing his commitment to ensure his teachings were affordable and made available to everybody worldwide. It was also Dr. Masters’ intention that his timeless teachings carry on for eternity.
As Dr. Masters asked, everything will continue on as before. This includes Dr. Masters’ Daily Messages, Weekly Broadcasts and Mystical Insights. The May Convention and Formal Cap and Gown Graduation Ceremony will still take place. The theme will celebrate Dr. Masters’ life, so please show your support by attending. We also have dynamic and exciting projects in the pipeline we will be unveiling during the course of the next few months.
I would speak to Dr. Masters numerous times during the day, and he would end the conversation with the words “carry on.” It is Dr. Masters’ wishes that we all “carry on.” He would often say our members are all torchbearers blazing a trail of light across the world and by living the example, they make a loving difference. In his honor, we ask that each and every one of you continue to carry your torch wherever you go.
May we all continue Dr. Masters’ legacy!
Message from Lydia L. Reineck
I have been full of gratitude working with Dr. Masters and his staff, my colleagues, these two years. My background was in academia, with my doctorate in English Literature from the University of Southern California (USC), and I had taught a variety of university-level English and Humanities courses to typical undergraduates as well as working adults returning to finish their degrees, both online and in the classroom.
My interest in religion and spirituality began when I was quite young, and blossomed while pursuing my graduate degrees. Over time, a number of unexpected meetings led me to meditation courses with an advanced master from India, spiritual healing and Reiki, and Integrated Energy Therapy (hands on healing with Angelic energies), each of which dramatically changed my life for the better. They furthered me along the path that I loved–experiencing the indwelling light of spirit.
After loving prayer, an opening at the University of Sedona became available, and I was interviewed and hired by Dr. Masters, for whom I felt an immediate familiarity. I was thrilled to find that for the first time, my job and my spiritual interests merged: I am working with people who have similar, mystical interests, and I am helping wonderful students who are dedicated to the inner Light Presence in their hearts and doing God’s work in the many ways they can.
It is truly an honor to be working with so many devoted, heart-centered individuals here at the University of Sedona and the University of Metaphysics. We are dedicated to continue shining the Light wherever we can.
And SO IT IS!
