Description

This course has been created for those of you who are not strictly affiliated with any one specific religion or spiritual philosophy. This course is meant to help you create a spiritual practice which aligns with how you feel you can best care for your spirit.

To accomplish this I'll take you through an easy, step-by-step method of creating your own spiritual mission, goals and action plan to provide you with a personalized spiritual practice from which you'll be able to experience tangible results.

The course is approximately 30 minutes in length, however you'll want to take breaks between each lecture to thoroughly complete lecture assignments.

The goal of this course is to show you that nurturing your spirit can be found in a variety of life activities. You don't need to strictly associate with any one religion or spiritual philosophy in order to successfully care for your spirit. All you need to do is take regular time to listen to what your heart desires and commit to a plan to fulfilling those desires to have a fulfilling spiritual practice.

A PDF download of a Spiritual Mission & Goals Template is also included with the course to help you organize your spiritual mission and goals.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is best suited for the spiritual independent; someone who isn't strictly affiliated with any one specific religion or spiritual philosophy.
  • This course is meant to help those who are interested in creating a more organized and goal-orientated approach to their spiritual practice. The information in this course is general enough for people who are new to creating their own spiritual practice, yet also offers a method that can prove helpful for the more advanced spiritual independent.
  • This course is probably not for you if you have a strong affilation with a single religion or spiritual philosophy.

I'm an independent scholar and writer who specializes in philosophical, religious and spiritual studies.  My work is motivated by a desire to understand why people believe what they believe.  I find great joy in exploring the impact beliefs have on the evolution of the individual, society and humanity's relationship with the natural environment.  The goal of my work is to provide practical knowledge about the nature of belief and to encourage people to consider the impact their beliefs have on the world.
