The Serenity Prayer reminds us that although we may not have control over many of the changes that take place in our lives, we do have choice in how we move through them. No more do we need to take things personally or try to control others; the most profound change comes from within us. "Living the Serenity Prayer" is about the wisdom to know when to act and when to let go.
This course is designed to bring you into a deeper relationship with the God of your understanding, not the God you were taught to believe in, but a Presence that is real to you … alive and fully present in every aspect of your life. It is who you are, expressing as you. There is no one else in the universe like you, with your way of being, your wisdom and your gifts. Your personal relationship with the God of your understanding fosters the beauty of who you are, and who you are is a beautiful thing!
This class is about saying yes to life – releasing the belief that we are not worthy – and moving through your fear to shine our light. In this class you will begin to consciously court the Love within that has forever courted you. It is from this Love that your power emerges and your light shines.
This course is mysticism in action. It is based on the teachings of Saint Teresa of Avila, brought to us in the exercises found in Entering the Castle. It is deep spiritual work that invites you to shed the old and step into true freedom as a contemporary mystic living in today’s world. Because of the depth of this class, you should be prepared to spend time daily on the reading and journaling assignments. The result?A connection with God/Life/your soul that is life-changing!
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred let me sow love, where there is injury let me sow pardon…Based on the Prayer of St. Francis, this course is a call to action, a journey to become an ever-increasing presence for peace in the world, beginning with ourselves. The Prayer of St. Francis is the light that illumines your path and guides your intentions. Each week includes at least one personal story written by a New Thought minister, authentically showing up as regular people on a spiritual path, which gives us all permission to be who we are, learning and growing through every life circumstance.
This course is an invitation to walk into the vast territory of your truth … your soul … your spiritual essence … your divine wisdom. It takes you on a journey that begins with consciousness tethered to the ego and ends with a state of inner freedom – loosening ego’s grip on your thoughts – thereby awakening and saying yes to your spiritual magnificence. In our textbook, The Untethered Soul, Michael Singer says, “Ultimately, the only way to know about God is by letting your being merge into The Being, and then seeing what happens to you.” It’s a huge step that takes courage and faith. This course is about trusting the process.
This course is a blend of science and spirituality. Together we will explore the nature of consciousness – choosing to be the scientist of our own experience – our own way of knowing and being in the world. We look at questions such as: What is a transformation of consciousness? What triggers transformation? How can we sustain the moments that move us beyond ourselves? How can transformational experiences actually change our lives? In “Living Deeply” we will begin to consciously look at our transformative experiences and begin integrating them into our lives.
God’s will is a mystery to many, and this class seeks to simplify the mystery, putting it in a context that can be understood as we live this very human experience. Divine will is a call to action, expressed as the life we are living. It is not about circumstances or events; it’s about who we are in each event. As we peel away everything that is unlike our true nature, which is love, we begin to live a life of joy, oneness with all creation, and thankfulness. The process isn’t always easy, and it takes time, attention, and the willingness to change. That’s where this class comes in; it is our beginning.
This course offers a step-by-step avenue to the sacred place of the Divine within all of us – our Authentic Self, and what to anticipate once you arrive. It is a journey toward a greater understanding of how to transform challenging or negative human experiences into direct experiences of the soul, where each problem becomes an opportunity to awaken to and be guided by spiritual truth. It tears down the false wall we’ve put up between our minds and our spirits, and shows the way toward a beautifully fulfilled life.
In this class we will study nine steps of a prayer practice explained in Jim Rosemergy’s book, The Gathering. It’s a new and powerful way to look at prayer, as well as your personal relationship with the God of your understanding. It is written that it is God’s good pleasure to give us the kingdom. Believing that this is true, would there be any challenge you could not face? Imagine allowing your problems to loosen their grip on you as you focus on an ever-deepening consciousness of your spiritual nature, one that permits you to see a way through any situation. In this course you will practice the avenues through which Spirit’s power and presence can be expressed.
In this course you will be shown how you can change your thinking and improve the quality of your life! Louise Hay’s message is: “If we are willing to do the mental work, almost anything can be healed." Within the two textbooks, along with the facilitator guidance, you will learn how limiting beliefs and ideas are often the cause of illness and everything else that stops you from moving forward. Please be prepared to devote time each day to do the reading and exercises. The result will be the ability to truly love and approve of yourself, preparing to live a life of freedom and joy!
What is true freedom? What is surrender and how does it affect my life? How do I let go of control? This class is designed to help you remember that you are a powerful creator! No matter what is going on around you, you choose where to put your focus. You can choose to react, or you can choose to like yourself in the situation. Your focus determines your perceptions, which in turn affects your attitude and guides your actions. This class is an opportunity to investigate the power of surrendering to the God of your understanding … your own inner wisdom. The result is freedom!
In The Power it is revealed that the single greatest force in the universe is Love. It clearly describes how the Law of Attraction brings to us what we most desire/appreciate/love. Rhonda Byrnes reminds us, “Life is so much easier than you think it is, and as you come to understand the way life works, and The Power you have inside you, you will experience the magic of life in its fullness – and then you will have an amazing life!” You are encouraged to read the entire book (it’s an easy read).
