Interfaith Seminary Program
The Path of Crow ~ Journey to Your Inner Treasure

Non-Ordination Path: Independent Study

In the first half of the study, Preparations, you'll be exploring the treasure's crucible, spiritual practice, from a variety of faith traditions. You'll examine various forms of meditation and prayer and become familiar with the process of co-creating with the Creator through the interplay of personal will and divine surrender. You'll recieve detailed guidance on how to create a spiritual practice that resonates with your inner knowing, how to deal with obstacles as they arise and, ultimately, how to become an alchemist turning the challenges of practice into the gold of the journey.

In the second half of the study, Creating Your Life Vision, you'll distill the impulse(s) of your inner joy as well as the major lessons and themes of your experience which are necessary and critical components of your personal vision character. You'll be offered opportunities for alchemy, to polish your inner treasure, by transforming patterns that no longer serve as well as to cultivate focus, courage and the inner inspiration to live from an open heart. And, as you clarify your personal life vision and prepare for its manifestation, you'll be supported to offer it as an expression of beauty, in service.
