Circle of Inner Truth
The Circle of Inner Truth was a short-lived channeling
group built around the work of trance medium Marshall Lever.
Lever, a young Presbyterian seminarian, discovered his mediumistic
abilities and made contact with a spirit named Chung
Fu, who described himself as a student of the ancient Chinese
philosopher Lao Tzu. In 1970 Lever and his wife, Quinta
Lever, began the Circle of Truth as an instrument of Chung
Fu’s work. They gave up any home life and spent all of their
time traveling and allowing Chung Fu to lecture and counsel
people. In trance, Lever began to give health readings similar
to those once offered by Edgar Cayce.
Chung Fu taught that humans have immortal spirits that
live through many incarnations. The incarnating process continues
until the individual identifies with a God-self during a
life on Earth. Such an awareness is developed through the practices
of affirmative meditation. Chung Fu also advised a regimen
of nutrition and healthy practices.
The circle continued into the 1980s. The Levers issued a
magazine, Our News and Views, from San Francisco. However,
more recently, the Levers have moved on to other activities.
