Beyond an overview of theory this course provides a variety of learning opportunities and leadership skills for integrating spiritual principles into one's career and everyday life with psychologically grounded techniques. Topics include dream mastery, creating a statement of purpose and a yearly holistic life plan, Gestalt leadership in life groups, inculcating a daily spiritual practice and preparing an hour-long public presentation. Taking spiritual leadership out of classroom theory into life and career requires development of personal disciplines which encompass one's work and finances, intimate and social relationships, personal growth and health, as well as recreation. The tools and techniques for making spiritual leadership real in the student's life are practiced and monitored to help them be integrated. Holistic healing skills are learned and applied to oneself in order for the student to truly be able to share them with others.

Application of spiritual principles in one's chosen life work is the theme of this course. Inner work will include the clearing and strengthening of one's energy centers as a regular practice. Outer work will entail the presentation and analysis of ones career autobiography and the completion of a major project relevant to manifesting purpose in life work.

Living and applying the spiritual principles which nourish our souls is the foundation for a sense of purposeful existence. This does not happen by chance. Unless the time and focus is given to this intention, we will continue to operate on cultural and familial survival patterns. Some research indicates the only measurable factor positively correlating with longevity is "job satisfaction." If the work we do on a daily basis is not building our vital energy, it is depleting it and decreasing our ability and motivation to work and play wholeheartedly. This course is directed to clarifying and infusing our life work with our highest purpose and supportively integrating the practices to do so.

These seminars should be taken in order given for best understanding and application.

Course Objectives:
  1. Clarify their experience of living purposefully.
  2. Enhance personal and regular connection with their spiritual guidance.
  3. Identify and strengthen their energy centers.
  4. Develop advanced daily spiritual practices.
  5. Complete a project that manifests their life purpose.
  6. Use their career autobiography to help put spiritual principles into their chosen life work.
