Welcome to The Soul Journey!
We are pleased to introduce ourselves to you. See below to read about Andrew Schneider and Bonnie Schneider
Andrew (1942-2011) was born in Kelowna, B.C., Canada. He entered a
seminary to study for the Roman Catholic priesthood with the Benedictine monks
at the age of 14. He trained with them for five years, gaining a solid academic
grounding for his later studies, developing a deep spirituality and learning to
live in a disciplined way. He then joined an Italian missionary order. He took
his philosophical studies in Connecticut before spending three years in Italy
where he took a year’s novitiate and two years of theology in Rome.
After 11 years in the religious life, he left to pursue studies in psychology at
the University of British Columbia. This was followed by a professional
development year at Simon Fraser University in B.C. to qualify for a teaching
certificate. For five years, he worked as a teacher and school counsellor in the
B.C. school system.
His studies resulted in degrees in Theology, Philosophy,
Psychology and Education.
Since 1974, Andrew worked full time in the metaphysical field. He
created and taught many programs for personal growth, soul consciousness,
esoteric studies and philosophical counselling in Canada and Europe. He also
taught over 5000 classes, seminars and workshops. He and his wife, Bonnie,
also conducted 15 international retreats in various countries. Andrew has been
described as “a teacher of teachers and a healer of healers.” He authored
many books and manuals for developing soul consciousness and understanding the
world in which we live.
The scope of his teachings is extremely broad and eclectic. He combines
psychology and spirituality in such a way that he facilitates integration of the
whole person: body, soul and spirit. Andrew was very skilled in the way he
combines universal spiritual principles, esoteric philosophy, soul psychology,
the latest brain research and the findings of quantum physics. The theme that
runs through all his teaching and writing is on developing soul consciousness
and gaining soul perspectives on practical realities of daily life. People who
participated in his courses and programs find that they go through significant
transformations in their personal lives, giving them a greater sense of purpose
Andrew and Bonnie’s service in recent years took them to
many countries besides their native Canada: U.S.A., Mexico, Greece, Cyprus,
Panama, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland.
Andrew’s sensitivity and warmth, his deep interest in people’s well-being, his
vast knowledge combined with intuitive perception, and his outstanding ability
to express complex ideas in clear, simple language made him a very respected
teacher and sought-after speaker.
Andrew passed away in October of 2011.
He will be dearly missed by many and will be remembered by his legacy of The Soul
Journey program, his book the Mysteries Revealed and his many manuals and books
waiting to be published in the new Soul-Books.com bookstore.
Bonnie assisted Andrew in teaching, writing and presenting for over 25 years, while they shared their lives together. Bonnie has been an integral part of each course and has a very solid knowledge in soul consciousness development. Bonnie’s intuitive and healing abilities have greatly influenced Andrew and the work they did together for so many years. Bonnie is grateful to have such an abundant amount of material to offer clients from Andrew’s work. She will be working with Barbara to get more of this material onto the site to support you, our soul journey clientele, in your development of soul consciousness.
Bonnie has a Bachelors Degree in Metaphysical Science and is also an ordained reverend in the Canadian International Metaphysical Ministry. If you are interested in other ceremonies such as a marriage ceremonies, wedding vow renewal ceremonies, celebration of life and memorial services please visit her other website www.celebrateyourlove.net
Bonnie also has a teaching and leadership role in the area of dance in which she has had very extensive training over many years. At many of the workshops and retreats that she co-led with Andrew, she would also teach Circle Dance and other sacred dances which serve so beautifully to anchor and ground the higher energies. The dance also serves as a very apt metaphor of life itself. Bonnie is one of the clearest and most capable instructors anywhere.
