Stone, Dr. Joshua David
Joshua David Stone (December 1953–August 2005) was an American author, teacher, and spokesperson for the ascension movement. His most prominent topics were ascension and meditation techniques. He also wrote a number of books on the topic of spiritual psychology.
With the growing popularity of the World Wide Web, he also composed one of the more comprehensive websites on spirituality, which has often been used as a point of reference on New Age topics. Furthermore, he founded an academy for spiritual studies by the name of Melchizedek Synthesis Light Academy & Ashram (MSLA), which then later developed into the I AM University.
In the 1990s, Dr. Stone initiated the Wesak celebrations at Mount Shasta, California, which are annual spiritual gatherings that spawned a lot of interest—and controversy—in the New Age movement. The last Wesak celebration hosted by Dr. Stone in Mount Shasta took place in 2004. The Wesak celebrations in Mount Shasta are still carried on today.
In 2004 Dr. Stone founded the Ascended Master Teachings organization, the I AM University, a spiritual university to teach students how to integrate all walks of faith.
After his death, Gloria Excelsias took over the leadership the I AM University. It has been relocated from central Coastal California near San Luis Obispo to Salzburg, Austria where it continues to make the legacy of Dr. Stone available to serve students of spirituality worldwide.
