 Book Study:  PSV 304 The Intelligent Universe

The Universe is Calling by Eric Butterworth - One of my favorite spiritual foundation teachings! Butterworth breaks down religious dogma and guides the way through the human illusion of fear in our modern society.  We learn how to pray from the consciousness of God through the power of Divine Law/Mind, practical examples and exercises. This experience, in turn, activates the inner soul’s memory of Divine Truth.

 Book Study:  PVS 1010a The Divine Path of Intuition

Florence Scovel Shinn, one of the founding teachers of New Thought, authored the small but transformational book, The Magic Path of Intuition. Discovered 72 years after her death, Louise Hay published this gem of a book teaching us how to listen and follow our intuition by releasing fear and cultivating our faith in Divine wisdom.

 Book Study:  PVS  267 The Mystery and Power of Prayer

This course of study is based on the book Secrets of the Lost Mode of Prayer by Gregg Braden.  It introduces the student to an ancient form of prayer that has no words or outward expressions.  Lost over time to most of humanity, it is still being used in the remote monasteries of central Tibet and the high deserts of the American Southwest. This course also helps the student identify deeply hidden beliefs and transform and heal our deepest hurts.
