Seb S. Baghoomian
Doctor of Metaphysical Sciences, D.Ms.

In 1980, I earned my Diploma from The Armenian Catholicos (Universal Church) of the Great House of Cilicia in Beirut, Lebanon. In my twenties, I became very attached to the studies in humanities: religion, philosophy, metaphysics, history, literature, poetry, art, music, paintings, psychology and politics.

The curriculum in the academic circles could not provide answers to the on-going ontological, epistemological, teleological, and especially, metaphysical questions.

It has taken more than thirty years of self-introspection, meditation and self-study courses (i.e.; Great Books of the Western World) that have blossomed into a mature understanding of the self, the nature of the soul, the nature of God, the nature of spirit, ourselves as humans and the cosmos at large.

I’m thankful to both UMS in California and UMS in Minnesota for having provided me with the opportunity to voice my thoughts in the domain of metaphysics so crucial especially in the New Age where humanity is faced with many challenges in their pursuit for spiritual growth, peace, love and happiness.

Having completed her Ph, D. she is now focused on completing her book entitled”Transfiguration” which covers her NDE in 1990 and the ongoing revelations that have unfolded since.

Curtis Craig Cochran
Doctor of Metaphysics, D.M.

My Philosophy
I believe we each carry a dream of a life we were born to realize, which shows up through desire. And I believe that we all have the ability to realize our personal and professional dreams if we commit ourselves to not settling for anything less than what we really want. It is when we move toward our passions that we experience our own greatness, and it is then an incredible contribution to ourselves and to the world by being who we truly are. Freedom to dream is achievable.

My Mission
Our mission is to help individuals live true to themselves, and includes the following individual freedoms:

• Freedom to live a life of greatness that is aligned with their definiteness of purpose.
• Freedom to prosper on their own terms doing what they love.
• Freedom to escape their restrictions and limitations that have been imposed on them.
• Freedom to love honestly and true to their self.
• Freedom to live healthy life and actually age less than they do now.

Most recently, I earned a Doctor of Holistic Life Coaching and a Doctor of Divinity in Spiritual Counseling.

My family is very tiny consisting of a husband and one grown son, who is also in Criminal Justice. I have had many rescued pets. Currently, I have 3 rescue dogs, each one is over 100 pounds.

My hobbies and interests have not changed since childhood. They consist of Paranormal Investigation, Metaphysics, Spiritual Readings, dancing, hard rock concerts, white water rafting and traveling the world.

I have had recent health issues, where I have been unable to work out of the home. I hope with the recent degrees that I will be able to create a web site that can offer counseling, advice, and readings. My goal is to establish a successful at home business, by encompassing my education and work experiences into a compete and well rounded service to individuals. My goal is to be able to offer services on a sliding fee scale or through trade, the way it was done in history.

Tanya Lynn Ebert
Doctor of Metaphysical Sciences, D.Ms.

At age thirty-five, Tanya experienced a dirt bike accident that left the doctors puzzled and unable to relieve her of the pain that she experienced daily, due to a stuck bent leg. A year after her accident while trying to cope with being disabled and unable to function without daily help, suicide seemed the only option. After embarking on a journey in Sedona, Arizona, she came back full of life and in a state so blissful it was almost too much for her to handle. After discovering something phenomenal was happening to her, she embarked on another journey to put the pieces together of why she was so different from everyone else. This event led her to enroll at University of Metaphysical Sciences as well as write and publish, “Mystical Puzzle”. Three years after her accident, through the use of crystal gemstones and reiki, Tanya no longer required the use of a wheelchair to get around. Her passion is to learn as much as she can about energy based healing modalities. With that she hopes to teach others that they too can heal themselves in profound ways that they did not think was possible.

One day, while spending a beautiful day at the beach in Cape Cod, his wife showed him a course curriculum for UMS which she found in a local, Holistic store. He had an “AHA” moment after reviewing it. Why not attach a goal to the subject matter he had already been reading for pleasure.

He enrolled in UMS, finished the 80 courses and began a two year journey of study and research in the fields of “Spiritual Intelligence and The Intuitive Thought Processes” Upon completing his Master’s degree, he began another two year journey researching and writing his Doctoral Dissertation, hoping to show that the root cause of stress is fear and why a holistic approach for coping is preferable to an allopathic one.

After seven years, this phase of Rick’s journey has been completed. The next phase is to pursue a path in “Transpersonal Counseling”. Pura Vida. 🙂
