Watch the ORIENTATION & OVERVIEW Recording Here!

 There are Eight experienced teachers coming in to teach courses that give you techniques and meditative experiences to expand your psychic channels of clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and give you the tools, texts and teachings you need to connect with Spirit Loved Ones, Angels, Teachers and Guides for the purpose of receiving and delivering accurate messages that will help yourself or others on their life path. Some transcendent teachings have only previously been taught in ancient Mystery Schools.

 Whether you are enrolling because you feel called to be a “World Server” or “Lightworker”, or you simply want to enrich your daily life, or empower your performance on the job with the inspiration, happiness  & sense of empowerment that comes when we are connected, body, mind and soul, you will find a fit here. The insights gained will help you to gain self-understanding for who you are and your mission and goals on this life path. 

Many people use their refined gifts to tune in to their Spirit Guides for creative new ideas in writing, artwork or other creative endeavors, while others go on to use the gifts in therapeutic practice, or become psychic readers or ministers.

 Your learning & expansion is enhanced by the sharing & discovery that happens in a like-minded community of students, who will be your classmates for the year.  You also may just enroll in any course that appeals to you, without going for the IPP certificate.

Are you feeling called and yet you’re not sure. . .

consider this quote from the first man who climbed Mt. Everest:


“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. “  W.H.  Murray who led the Scottish Himalayan expedition
