The Last Requirement Met

 

Faculty 2000 - 2001

InnerCircle University: School of Spiritual Sciences

 

Rev. Dr. Crystal Bujol, today’s graduate, has been working on this degree of Doctor of Spiritual Sciences since 1972.  She has identified the members of her Lifetime Faculty, the last requirement for this graduation ceremony.  In order of appearance in her life, they are the primary teachers who helped her know herself through the study of the Science of Mind, Graduate Christian Spiritual Sciences, Psychotherapy, Mind-Body-Spirit connections and Music — the love of her soul:

 

Family First:

Rev. Dr. Ruth E. Bujol, her Mother  - 1st first metaphysical teacher

Leslie Joseph Bujol, Sr., her Father, was the wings beneath her wings.

Joy Renee’ Thompson Sanchez is her first born who captured her spirit.  (Crystal was "Clara" and was 16 when Joy was born.)  From Joy, Crystal learned compassion, patience, religious structure, and the spiritual asanas that nurture healing and let mothers and daughters hold hands when they are adults.

Carl Joel Thompson is her oldest son who captured her soul.  (Crystal was "Clara" and was 17 when he was born.)  Carl has always been ready with emergency plans for life’s exigencies, and has been a major loving financial supporter of her ministries.

Jeryl Stuart Thompson is her youngest son who captured her heart.  (Crystal was "Clara," and was 19 when he was born.) He was her first drum teacher, keeping alive his shared zest for living, a zeal for staying young, and a fired imagination.

Leslie Allen Hampton is her first grandson who captured her essence and is her most important reason to leave a legacy.

 

Extended Family of Pioneers:

Booker Thomas,  Founder of College of Data Processing, 1960, South Central L.A. — He gave here the formula for “How to start your own college to teach your own people, by people who look like them, for an Aquarian Age profession!”

Dr. Dan Morgan, Founder of Guidance Church of Religious Science, her metaphysical “Rosetta Stone,” giving her the keys to unlock the secrets of the ages and her mother’s metaphysical teachings.

Rev. Dr. Juanita Dunn, Religious Science, trained Crystal in the art of presenting healing workshops, and taught her how to make Spiritual Mind Treatment an art form.

Dr. Beverly Coleman, Founder of  Naches (New Age Community Health Education and Services, 1965) Brought to Crystal and out of Crystal the wisdom and understanding of health, Safe Use of Herbs, and the Temple Beautiful, and compassion for the body.  Beverly is one of Crystal’s  “Dorm Sisters.”

Dr. Alfred Ligon, Founder of the Aquarian Spiritual Center and developer of the Black Gnostic Curriculum. He graduated Crystal from just saying, “Black is Beautiful,” to embodying these principles.

Rev. Dr. A. Hasani Perry,  Co-Founder of Creative Life Consultants (TSS {Transform Self and Society}). Because of the work she was doing, she understood Graduate Christianity immediately from the name.  She brought Crystal balance in metaphysical psychology and spiritually based Communications. 

Rev. Elaine Armour Word, Founder of Armour Special Education Tutorial Services and a pioneer in computer education for LACSD teachers.  She is the minister of the Bay Chapter Woman’s Church.  Because of the work she was doing, she added depth to Crystal’s work on Woman’s Spirituality.  She is also the creator of the doctoral hood Dr. Crystal is receiving today.

Nirankar Kaur Khalsa, Coach of New Mothers Certified Kudalini Yoga instructor, she connected Crystal to the Sikh Community and philosophy, and responsible for the adoption into the InnerCircle Institutions of  “Healthy am I, Happy am I, Holy am I; Long Time Sun, Akal, Yoga.  She was creator of the original uniform for  Crystal’s 'seva' (selfless service).

Rev. Dr. Rainbow Johnson, Founder of Rainbow Ministries: the church without walls and the family without boundaries. She brought to Crystal a template of how to develop her international ministry of compassion, all with holding the energy for Crystal’s greater and deeper ministry. She gave Crystal an expanded consciousness of purpose.  She is Crystal’s other “Dorm Sister,” and “The Other Rev.!”

Priestess, Gayle Scott, Director of the West Coast Enneagram Institute, photographer, and writer.  She deepened Crystal’s consciousness of Woman’s Spirituality.  She opened Crystal to the world of the, Enneagram, offering her unconditional support and sanctuary healing in her home of beauty.

Rev. Dr. Richard Byrd, Pastor of  KRST Unity Center of African Spirituality, Executive Director of LAM (Los Angeles Metropolitan Ministries) and Founder of “Say Yes to Life.”  Because of the work he was doing, he brought depth to Crystal’s awareness, understanding and embodiment of African Spirituality, giving Crystal her African name. Through this naming, he taught her that she is a weaver of humanity, that sh has “the capacity to reweave a life, to set a boat on it’s proper course.”  He gave Crystal, ‘a great deal of confidence in self and insight into self as the mother who had returned in the image of the mother, to provide living sustenance.”   He is Crystal’s guide into prison ministries and converted her ministry of community service to the power of community action based on the first kwanza Principle of Umojo: Unity.

Master Seung Hyung Lee, 7th Degree Black Belt, Tae Kwon Do World Champion brought her from the white belt to the RED Belt in four years, beginning at the age of 62.

Grand Master Bobby “Teach” Parker 8th Black Belt, Wushu Kung Fu.  His names and titles, “Teach,” Master Lee, and "Sensai,"  taught Crystal to maintain the mind, spirit, body connection, adding to the depth of her balance, vitality, and flexibility on all planes. They have taught and shown her the power of breath and the magnificence of consistency.  Because of their watchful eye and intentional discipline, they raised the bar on the joy of reaching for a goal until it is accomplished — and having a trophy and a celebration with each victory.  They refined, tamed, and infused her spirit with the art of humility.  Though sometimes humility is hard to detect in the midst of her enthusiasm for life, it has become is the Tao of her life path.

Dr. Sylvia Lane, Doctor of transpersonal psychology, licensed Clinical Social Worker, and MFC Therapist.  The last faculty member to show up in Crystal’s life, serving as another “Rosetta Stone” giving another set of keys to unlock the wisdom of her mother’s teachings from the context of oppression, slavery, and misplacement in a Western Society to a knowing of being perfectly born free!  Her keys assist Crystal in sorting out the issues of yester-year to more clearly understand the space they currently occupy and convert them to golden stepping stones for today.  Her wise counsel helps Crystal flow into a more joyfully discipline of balancing soul, spirit, and all the stuff that constantly tries to occupy her mind.  She has given Crystal practical guidance in the art of reweaving the fabric of humanity by returning if to it’s mother — Africa.

 

Then, finally, Crystal’s Life-time faculty consists of those friends

 who have been in her life for over fifty years:

Edwina Bell Turner
