Spiritual Development Course

The basic teachings and the practice of light energy are taught in three-day Spiritual Development Courses that are held regularly at the center. 
Spiritual Development Courses are wonderful opportunities for people who sincerely want to improve themselves and the world by learning how to give light energy and practicing the universal principles. 
If you wish to help others and achieve personal growth through this practice, please visit our calendar to find out when courses are being offered. You can then register by visiting the center.

Course Information
The course is generally held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00/5:00 p.m. each day and is available in person only. Please arrive no later than 8:30 am. There is a monetary offering of $200 to register for the course. Auditing the course is also possible with prior registration.
Please see below the dates for the upcoming spiritual development courses to be held in Washington, D.C., New York, New Jersey, Vermont, and Boston.
The course includes information about  
  • the purpose, practice, and history of light energy,

  • practical experiences and examples. 
The course offers interesting explanations and possible solutions concerning why there are so many changes occurring in the world today and what we can do to help the world become a better place. 

As part of the course, after two and a half days of lectures, you will receive an individual focal point, which when you wear it, enables you to give light energy to others and yourself. On the last afternoon of the course, you will learn how to give light energy and have the opportunity to ask questions.

In addition to receiving light energy, it is suggested that you experience other center activities. The course is open to people at least 10 years old.
