Support Our Programs!

The IMS board — Craig Coleman (president) Ron Wallace (vice president), Brad Kling (treasurer), Kim Albee (secretary), Bruce Manuel (office manager), Ann Johnstone, Betty Albee, and Melinda Swenson — thanks you for joining us in our exploration of conscious living. We love seeing you and sincerely appreciate your participation and contributions!

Our Generous Donors

In fact, support by generous donors – of monetary donations, time, and talent – makes possible many things: 

  • the operation and programming of our website
  • the production of the Betty Albee/Kim Albee livestreams on YouTube and Facebook
  • the creation and distribution of our newsletters with below-cost pricing
  • the packaging and shipping of our products
  • our classes, discussion groups (three inspiring monthly Zoom sessions) and new publications

 Like the public-radio and TV stations in the United States, none of these things could be provided at their relatively modest pricing without the generous donations you make.

Your Time and Talent!

Now, we invite you to consider donating to support our work in 2023. If you want to offer your time and talents, please contact Craig Coleman at

New projects

 We’re currently offering a digital download (with new cover) of Margaret Laird’s What is the Idea? for $1.50! The pamphlet begins with this intriguing sentence: “God is a word; Man is a word; good is a word; evil is a word. But what is the idea?”

 For the 2023 Bliss Calendar program, one of our volunteers has selected quotations from the newly digitized Laird Letters on more than 20 helpful topics, and a comprehensive index of source material. When you sign up for the Bliss program, the daily quotes on the calendar you receive are all referenced in these indexes in their entirety.

Betty Albee offered an Intensive Class (with full enrollment) in La Jolla in October 2022.

Ongoing projects

In July of this year, Betty and Kim Albee hosted the 100th episode of their Rethink Life livestream.  These programs are presented on YouTube and the IMS Facebook Page and are archived on our ReThink Life YouTube Channel!

This past year, volunteers shared the role of webmaster, crafted dozens of emails with blog articles and sent out dozens of email notifications!

Craig Coleman hosted our free monthly Open Mics, which serve as a perfect introduction, with questions and answers, to Metaphysical Science.

Ron Wallace, Elizabeth Mock, and Ann Johnstone presented live casts.

Elizabeth Mock filled orders for print, audio, and video IMS products.

Bruce Manuel produced the IMS Rethink magazine for 2022, and covered all of our office management, which includes correspondence, banking, and digitization projects for us.

Annie Chamberlain and Melinda Swenson transcribed IMS programming that has been featured in Rethink magazine.

No donation too small

We’d like to remind you that many small donations help support the legal, non-profit status of the IMS by showing that it serves a broad-based, active community. If you are considering a gift, you may donate online or mail a check to: Institute of Metaphysical Science, P.O. Box 6321, San Jose, CA 95150. 

A gift of investment securities, estate bequests, charitable remainder trusts, or a gift annuity is always appreciated. When setting up such gifts, many people seek the advice of an attorney experienced in estate law and planning.
