Prosperity means much more than material wealth or financial security. True prosperity includes a consciousness of living in a bountiful universe, having a constant flow of abundance for all needs and expanding your awareness of the Divine Source. This course helps you explore the broader meaning of prosperity beyond “material things” and your beliefs about money, abundance and lack. You will discover ways to address your own unconscious assumptions about abundance, giving and generosity, and create practices for rising above these limitations.
Healing and Wholeness
This course is based on universal spiritual principles that support your healing and wholeness in your mind, body and life. The healing practices and principles developed and applied by Myrtle and Charles Fillmore are the basis of this course. You will be working with the Fillmore’s teachings on healing and wholeness, as well as with historical and contemporary spiritual master teachers.

Discerning Your Purpose
Discerning which life path to take is both a reflective and action-packed process. In this course we take a look at the practical (strengths and abilities) as well as the spiritual (desires and passions) to help determine what life actions to take. Being on the right path for your purpose is enlivening and fulfilling. Discerning Your Purpose provides a process for challenging your beliefs and desires in order to provide clarity. You will explore your skills, abilities and gifts, clarify your desires for your life and spiritual path, and create action plans for progressing to your desired outcome.
Effective communication skills include the ability to stay in dialogue when emotions are driving us to “shout out” or “shut down.” This course provides tools for listening, creating connection and facilitating dialogue in tough, emotional situations. The class is based on the model of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), which includes: taking responsibility for our own experience; commitment to increasing our awareness of our own feelings and needs as well as those of the people with whom we interact; and having the capacity to be authentic and compassionate in all circumstances.
