The Word “Quartus” denotes the four-square aspect of each individual: Spiritual, Mental, Emotional, and Physical.
The Quartus Foundation for Spiritual Research was founded in 1981 by John and Jan Price, and became a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation in 1983. It closed in 2018.
While writing the book The Superbeings, the author – John R. Price – made contact with a state of consciousness within himself, which he called his Higher Self. During this experience, John asked that the purpose of the book be revealed to him, and the inner voice said:
“To reveal the truth that every man and woman on Earth is more than a human being, that each has the Gift and may rise above all limitations of mind, body and affairs. As the fulfillment you are seeking is found by rising in consciousness, you will be demonstrating the Truth, and as you share these experiences with others, and as they share their experiences with you, you will grow together. You, and others who will join you in the journey, are seeking the Fourth Dimensional Consciousness, which was established within all mankind in the beginning. It is in the depths of your being now, awaiting your rediscovery.
“Call your group Quartus. It is not to be a church or a religion. It is to be a foundation for continued research and communications on the Reality and truth of Man and his world. It is to be a platform for the free exchange of ideas, for opening minds, for sharing and growth.”
And so The Quartus Foundation was established.
The Quartus Foundation published the Quartus Report, a bimonthly newsletter with articles by John Price as well as articles and insights from member-subscribers. Each issue represented a guide to higher Consciousness, practical steps to enable you to realize your own unlimited potential and make dramatic changes in your life.
The Foundation also held workshops on a variety of topics, all in support of its purpose: “to assist individuals in finding the Light within – and through that Light, to rise above the problems and challenges of this world. In doing so, more light is released into the collective consciousness of mankind for the good of all.
