Advanced Studies Courses


Advanced studies courses require the completion of prerequisite courses as outlined in each advanced class syllabus.  


At The Temple Within School of Sacred Studies, we believe that a firm and solid foundation of fundamental principles in spiritual, esoteric, shamanic, and healing studies is necessary to the overall mental, emotional physical and spiritual well-being of each student.


Prerequisite courses will be determined by the facilitator of each advanced course.
