About Our Classes
Our classes give you what you need to expand your knowledge of spiritual principles and to gain practical spiritual tools for everyday use. In addition to learning about our philosophy and how to apply it, being in a class is one of the best ways to enter more deeply into our spiritual community. It is a wonderful opportunity to meet and get to know people from many different backgrounds.
Our teachers are experienced and love to share the power that these teachings have to change lives. Classes combine experiential exercises with explanation how to establish a spiritual practice. Many lifelong friendships have begun in our classrooms. Come and join us as we explore and experience the transformation spiritual practice can bring to every life!
Classes are typically 8 or 10 weeks in length and begin in January, March, June, and September. Registration begins 6 weeks prior to the first class.
All completed course work contributes to the required pre-requisites for entry to the Advanced Consciousness Studies Program and Professional Religious Science Practitioner Studies.
Spiritual Enrichment classes are elective classes that also apply toward degree programs and where electives are called for in Advanced Consciousness Studies and Professional Religious Science Practitioner.
