Climbing The Mountain

On The Testifying Travelogue

Climbing The Mountain : On The Testifying Travelogue

Pateo, ISBN 978-94-90765-34-1, 1st Digital Edition (2021/10/20), 29 pages

We can compare spiritual development with mountain climbing. It requires a lot of effort, and the higher we go, the more difficult it becomes. However, while climbing a mountain we are hindered by all kinds of external factors, spiritual development is hampered by internal factors. These impediments are in fact within ourselves.

The Wholly Science Education Program has been developed to enable us to first recognize and then overcome the inner obstacles. Only Wholly Science students from Level 4 can order this book to take the step up to Level 5 on the basis of the assignments described therein.


Wholly Science students who meet the above condition can order this ebook for € 100 (or the equivalent of this amount in any other currency). The chapters of this ebook are delivered one by one, each time after the assignment of the previous chapter has been completed.

Group Expedition

As soon as at least seven climbers have registered for the upcoming ascent, their climbing expedition to the top of this “mountain” can start. These spiritual mountaineers then meet weekly online in Pateo’s Zoom room to discuss each other’s travelogues. The total ascent takes about four months, and requires an average time commitment of at least four hours per week. Every climbing expedition has its own private team webpage, from which all information is accessible. After a climber has registered, he or she will receive the link to this private webpage. There, the climber will find the first chapter of this ebook. At the end of this chapter, the first assignment is described. Every climber must have completed this assignment before the first online climbing team meeting is held. Those who fail to complete an assignment in time can be ejected out of the climbing team and will then have to wait for the next expedition to complete their climb.

Solo Climbing Tour

If it takes too long before a joint climbing expedition can be held again, it is now also possible to do this individually. Apart from the disadvantages of solo climbing (such as receiving less feedback and no development of mutual cohesion), the advantage is that you can climb entirely at your own pace and that the focus is only on your own climbing. Each time a chapter is completed, an appointment is made to discuss it. If this chapter contains sufficient quality and depth, you can go to the next chapter (of a total of 7). The demands placed on the solo climbing tour are therefore of a higher level. If this level is not achieved, a chapter can be retaken once. In this way, a resit option applies to a maximum of three chapters. If a fourth chapter is subsequently rejected, the climber will have to wait for the next expedition to climb in a group.

How to register?

If you would like to participate in the climb in consciousness and meet the above condition, then contact us. In doing so, indicate whether you want to climb in a group or alone. You will then receive further information including how to pay. Participation is only guaranteed after payment.


The first English Wholly Science Mountain Climbing Expedition started on Sunday 6 March 2022 at 8 p.m. Central European Time. There were seven climbers, next to the guide. This expedition ended twenty weeks later, on Sunday 24 July 2022.

This book is also available in Dutch.
