About Our Logo

Some have asked about the meaning of the Church's logo, variations of which are used by the Institute of Metaphysical Humanistic Science (IMHS), Thomas Francis University (TFU), the International Metaphysical Practitioners Association (IMPA), and others. The logo was designed with a specific meaning and has evolved over many years. Some have wondered whether it implies some type of secret occult society, however, this could not be further from the truth. Here is an explanation of each part of the logo:


"Triquetra" (tra'kee-tra) basically means "triangle" and has been used by many ancient peoples and belief systems over recorded history including Christianity and Paganism (a pagan is a person who is not a Christian, Jew, or Muslim). This symbol is used in our logo to represent three fundamental skills necessary for one to reach his or her full potential and become complete within themselves: Self-Acceptance; Self-Responsibility; and Respect for Free Will, and these three are interconnected by a never-ending line. These skills are known as the Life Leadership ParagonTM and are a fundamental belief system of ICMH. These skills are also taught in IMHS Institute courses and it forms the foundation of Life Leadership Coaching--a Transpersonal Approach to Self-Completeness taught in our PhD Degree Program.

Likewise, the pentacle or pentagram in the center can be traced to all forms of religion including Christianity and Paganism. Many Christians incorrectly associate the symbol with Satanism or with the Star of David from Judaism. This symbol is used in our logo to represent Self-Completeness (self-actualization).


Three Arrows
The three arrows graphic represents personal growth, positive evolution, and the freedom of choice for one to pursue his or her individual destiny and purpose. The three arrows point up, but in different directions representing freedom of choice. The lower red arrow represents the beginning of our journey without much enlightenment, but then we gain more and more as we grow, as represented by the green arrow.


Three Circles
The three circles background simply represents mind, body, and spirit, and these three are simply aspects of the whole person.
