Practical Spirituality for a Modern Life

With dialog, introspection, group activities, and support from others on the path, you will develop a new concept of yourself, take ownership of your innate power, and identify and update your beliefs about the Universe and how it works.

The next Beyond Limits class begins February 26.

VISIONING

What if the path to your most fulfilling life has already been written by the universe, and all you needed to do was accept it?

This class is for anyone dissatisfied with modern goal-setting which leads to so many of us waking up one day wondering what on earth happened to our life. This happens because we often set goals not on what our soul wants us to do, but what society wants us to do. Forget society. Listen to your soul.

This program teaches you how to manifest your soul’s deepest longings and offers weekly opportunities for visioning at different levels – from the individual, to the community, to the global.

Prerequisite: Completion of Beyond Limits or Introduction to Practical Spirituality.

Visioning begins Jan 13.

SELF MASTERY

The Sacred Art of Living Well

Now is the time to harness the power of your dreams and aspirations, and live the life you have only dared imagine. By teaching the use of introspection, inspiration, and empowerment, this course will help you seize the opportunities that your life offers.

Embark on a journey of spiritual mastery, exploring what it takes to make work a prayer, life a song, living an art, and believing an act. Newly redesigned, with experiential curriculum and an accessible 8-week series, each class will include lecture, journaling and introspection, and deep inquiry with instructor and fellow participants.

The next Self Mastery class is scheduled for Fall 2020.

 

THE BIBLE WITHOUT THE BS

What do Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, and the Bible have in common? They are all archetypal stories about divinely guided individuals who grow up by moving through a world of challenges that cause soulful evolution. By employing a Jungian Depth Psychological approach, this class presents the classic biblical narrative, as well as other timeless tales, as a story of your soul’s archetypal development toward divinity.

The next Bible Without the BS is scheduled for Fall 2020.

UNLOCKING YOUR MIND

What if you could be counseled by one of the most brilliant New Thought Leaders of our time? Would you like to experience greater creativity, healing, improved relationships, or explore your destiny? Through this class you’ll have the opportunity to examine relevant ideas and uncover ways to make the power of our Science of Mind teaching come alive in your life. It’s a class rich with discussion, creative expression, and is sure to bring new insights into your life.

This 8-week course taught by Rev. Abigail delves into the works of Rev. Dr. Ernest Holmes, an internationally renowned teacher of religious psychology, a beloved scholar, mystic, and prolific author. With guidance from his writing, you’ll discover how to see past your problems and walk into the heart of your eternal being. You’ll feast on Dr. Holmes’ quiet, devotional writings, as well as his impassioned teaching for future leaders. You’ll explore modern psychology and metaphysics and discover your own limitless ability to choose what to think and feel, and therefore, how to make effective changes in your life.

The next Unlocking Your Mind is scheduled for Spring 2020.

Professional Prayer Practitioner Training

This nine month training (stay tuned for dates) focuses on the consciousness, skills, and responsibilities of the Professional Prayer Practitioner, the principles we teach, the process in healing, as well as a Practitioner’s relationship to the Center, the community, and the world.

Students will learn the skills necessary to be proficient in working professionally with clients along with the foundations of setting up a professional practice. Students will also have the opportunity to expand their own vision of life as a Practitioner, not only as one-on-one client practitioners, but also as ‘being a Practitioner’ relates to the world and the collective transformation occurring in our spiritual evolution.
