Inner Guidance: The Stones of Truth

“The Stones of Truth is a powerful way-shower for those who are aware of the connection between their spiritual nature and their human presence; or the degree to which we are open to the blessing of spiritual love and truthfully live from it in our daily lives.  Why Love and Truth?  Because together they embody our wholeness.  For it is so that Love is Truth’s sacred companion and Truth is Love’s essential guardian.”                                               

- Val Jon Farris

What Is “The Stones of Truth?”

The Stones of Truth is a three-part life enhancement series facilitated by Val Jon Farris.  This illuminating journey into one’s extraordinary presence and nature produces true “Revelations of the Soul.”  Revelations is a departure from the familiar transformational processes offered by most practitioners.  (Transformations are about making incremental changes to our finite presence.  Revelations are about making quantum leaps into experiencing our infinite nature.) 

The three parts of The Stones of Truth Series are  “Self-Mapping,” “Soul-Seeing” the “Life-Aligning.”  The Self-Soul-Life parts are offered as independent services, but participants report that by engaging in the combined series they produced the maximum results in their lives.  (Please read the extensive reviews at the bottom of this page.)

Self-Mapping begins with placing a series of special stones upon the “tablet of life.”  The result is a map or navigational chart of one’s inner terrain of self.  The lay of stones reveals powerful truths about a person’s life, their relationships with themselves and others and pivotal choices to be made in order to move towards greater fulfillment.  This mapping process bypasses the ego self and taps directly into the deepest  truth of one’s human presence and divine nature.  (This truth in Latin is expressed as “ut supra sic intra, ut sic extra,” or “as within, so without.”)  The session lasts between 1.5 and 2 hours and is conducted over the internet via video conferencing and screen sharing.

Soul-Seeing ventures even deeper into one’s inner terrain, into their very core all the way to their soul.  This powerfully experiential session provides illumination, clarity and insight into one’s relationship with the Divine and the blessings and challenges of living true to its wisdom in their daily life.  The session lasts between 3 and 4 hours and is usually conducted in person.  Coming face-to-face with one’s soul is an extraordinary experience that produces powerful revelations and shifts in one’s life.

Life-Aligning is a 9-month daily spiritual practice that integrates the revelations experienced in the Stones of Truth process.  Each day is dedicated to embracing a very specific spiritual wisdom and key life lesson.  Based on the ancient Mayan Calendar, the Life-Aligning process integrates what is called “Tzolkin Wisdom,” (Tzolkin means “count of days,”) a daily practice divided into 260 days.  Each day offers profound insight into one’s life, choices, attitudes and overall human and spiritual development.  It is the most comprehensive integration process anywhere in the world.(This practice is complete unto itself but works best if the Self-Mapping and/or Soul-Seeing sessions have been completed first.)

The  9-month Life-Aligning spiritual practice, (while self-sufficient unto itself as a separate subscription) integrates the work of the Stones of Truth Self-Mapping and Soul-Seeing sessions.  It’s extraordinary daily spiritual messages, exercises and meditations are based on the ancient Mayan “Tzolkin Calendar.”  The entire Mayan empire as well as many MesoAmerican civilizations such as the Aztec, Toltec, and ancient Native American tribes embraced this wisdom and lived it on a daily basis.  (Imagine everyone in a Nation celebrating a different spiritual wisdom everyday of the year with the kind of enthusiasm we celebrate our Holidays such as Mother’s Day!)  Much like an astrological reading the “Daily Kins” as they are called offer grounding, guidance and consistency in one’s life.


The Stones of Truth’s key underlying principle of as within, so without is rarely referenced in most of the world’s religions, but it can be found and studied in great detail in lesser known esoteric doctrines.  One such doctrine is the “Emerald Tablet,” said to have been scribed by 6th Century Hermetic mystics.  Sir Isaac Newton himself devoted the latter part of his life to understanding the truths chiseled into this mysterious stone slab.  To read Newton’s literal translation of the Emerald Tablet’s opening passage, which currently resides at King’s College Library, Cambridge University, click on the Tablet.

Val Jon Farris took the vows of Bodhisattva at the age of 18 and soon after had the great fortune to personally learn the ways of stewardship and deep life contribution from extraordinary human beings such as Buckminster Fuller, Swami Muktananda, Sathya Sai Baba and Zen Master, Roshi Mumon Yamada.  (Now, allow me to speak in first person, which makes much more sense.)  These rare encounters of the most sacred kind set in motion a future path for me to be a dedicated facilitator of deep inner self- and life-mastery work.  I humbly and with conviction carry forth the messages of Love and Truth embodied by these and by other great masters.  I have developed extraordinary relationships with the Maya people in the Yucatan Peninsula and the elders of Central and South America.  I deeply honor their ways and live their wisdom as best I can.

In terms of business results, I have over three decades of experience designing and delivering in-depth self-development programs.  I am a well-respected personal mentor to c-suite executives, country managers and thought leaders around the world and am a recognized Fortune 100 Leadership Development Expert who has brought spirituality, mindfulness and human greatness to over fifty-thousand corporate employees.  I’ve been awarded Commendations of Excellence by Hewlett-Packard Company, Agilent Technologies, Intuit, Yahoo, Pacific Telesis and many other high-tech firms and am humbled to be of service to them.  I’m also an award-winning author, a featured columnist for The Huffington Post and am currently one of Sir Richard Branson’s senior leadership mentors for the annual entrepreneur’s Extreme Tech Challenge competition.  While all this seems impressive, the truth is I’m nothing more (and nothing less) than a simple steward, guide and friend to myself and others along this path called life.

“A World Class Advisor.”

“I would rarely consider working with someone in this capacity besides my husband but I intuited that Val Jon would lend the objectivity and spiritual altitude I was seeking and I did not question my ‘hit’ Val Jon instantly created a safe, sacred and laser light of truth space. He just SAW me, saw things he could not have known had he not countenanced it from on high. He was loving, insightful, challenging (in a good way) and kept referencing me back to my own guidance.”
