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.

Segment I

March 13, 2021

10:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.


In the West, many of us have forgotten the sacred work of tending to a Soul as it prepares for its earthly birth, and as it experiences the many rites of passage that are part and parcel of its physical, human journey. So too, have we forgotten the spiritual preparations necessary for a peaceful death of the physical body and the sacredness of properly entering into the afterlife in a state of joyful awareness.


How do we, as spiritual beings having a human experience, assist other souls in safe passage to this human life from their home in Spirit? How do we care for them during this earthly journey and then safely back to Spirit once their time on earth is complete? What about tending to the souls of our relatives who are currently in a state of transition from their physical life, back to being once again with Spirit? Can we continue to nurture our relationship with our ancestors who have returned Home to the illuminated states of the ancestral realm?


It has been my experience as a spiritual teacher, ceremonialist, and sensitive seer, that not only are we able to assist in the comings and goings of souls to and from this earthly plane, but that our willing participation is, in fact, necessary. True, for me as well, is the importance of communing with our ancestors in the process.

I have come to call this work, Soul Minding©.


Please join me at The Temple Within School of Sacred Studies in Lowell, Michigan to become a Soul Minding Practitioner in 2020. Whether you are working solely or in tandem with professionals in the worlds of medicine, religion, psychology, hospice, or midwifery, Soul Minding© is a practice which is intended to recognize and work with the wisdom of our ancestors and the Divine presence of Creator, Spirit and Soul in all of our experiences of life and death.
