Working with the Wheel of Life Course:
Understanding Human Spirituality and Life Passages


This is a twelve month educational and professional training program in, Working with the Wheel of Life: Understanding Human Spirituality and Life Passages. This course consist of two parts. In the first portion of this program we are introduced to some of the diverse ways that various cultures celebrate their spirituality and life cycles. In the main portion of this program we explore our own spirituality and learn how we can help others celebrate their natural life cycles. Birth and death are natural cycles. What happens in between those times is what really counts to those of us who seek meaning inn our day-to-day life. The course offers a spiritual approach to counseling, teaching, healing, and studying the Wheel of Life to better understand Human Spirituality and our own life cycles. Lectures and demonstrations help you grasp the underlying  concepts, important techniques and application of the Wheel of Life as a powerful tool to address life cycle changes in Human Spirituality.

All religions began as spiritual experiences which later became political and bureaucratic. This course will look beyond the dogmas and doctrines of modern religions for the connecting thread of truth and validity of Ancient Wisdom. The program will introduce you to the world of mystery and faith and draw upon the the practice of spirituality in primitive cultures to learn how we can apply Ancient Wisdom in today's times. The modern world is technologically advanced but spiritually malnourished. Drawing on  Ancient Wisdom and traditional practices can help  us connect to our own Human Spirituality in a modern world. Exploring Human Spirituality across the globe can enrich our own spiritual understanding and offer us a deep appreciation of how people of various cultures give order and meaning to their lives and celebrate life passages. This program offers a spiritual psychology that focuses on the Soul, the Sacred and the belief that human problems and health issues have a spiritual root cause. No matter what our cultural differences are sooner or later most people meet with emotional, psychological, physical, and spiritual challenges in their relationships, career, health and finances.

This course provides solutions and training to effectively overcome the struggles, conflicts, fears and challenges that one encounters during various life passages. The Wheel of Life offers a powerful spiritual tool for studying life passages, change and self-mastery. Understanding crisis periods will provide the candidate with the spiritual tools necessary to deal effectively with change, illness and loss. This course will help you and your clients prepare for life cycle changes, growth and healing.
