The Teaching of the Inner Christ, Inc. (T.I.C., Inc.) was established over forty years ago in San Diego, California. It was first incorporated in 1966 by its founders, Rev. Ann Meyer Makeever, D.D. and Rev. Peter V. Meyer, D.D.. (See "The Founder" in this site.)
The origin of the Teaching itself is rare and compelling. In 1962, Ann, who was then a prominent singer and mother of four, was contacted by the Yogi Master Babaji who appeared to her in physical form and fed into her mind in many paranormal and mystical ways, a new "Jesus Teaching for the New Age". The premise of this Teaching is that everyone is a Christ. Jesus was the example of the Christ on the earth and likewise everyone has a unique Christ Self within, who is their true and perfect identity.
In 1966 Ann and Peter incorporated "Society for the Teaching of the Inner Christ". Separately, they both had been spiritually taught and guided by Babaji within their own minds for many years. Once together, through channeling and meditation, they received and then formulated the present T.I.C. curriculum, which helps others to contact their own Inner Christs.
Ann's and Peter's experiences of spiritual phenomenon was unbelievable and yet completely genuine. Over time and through outer proof, they learned to trust that this new Teaching would one day change the thinking of the world about the true nature of the human experience.
As the Teaching of the Inner Christ spread and established branch Centers in many other cities, students attested to the rare and powerful spiritual experiences they were sharing and how completely their lives were being changed for the better, through contacting their Inner Christ and learning the power of prayer.
In 1977, with her own vision for the future of this Teaching, Ann withdrew from the first corporation, and established the current organization called "Teaching of the Inner Christ, Inc", which has branch Centers in Long Beach, California and Las Vegas, Nevada, as well as smaller groups in other cities. (See "Locations" in this site.)
