Choosing to serve as a Spiritual Coach or Celebrant gives you the opportunity to serve people in a powerful way during the important milestones of their lives and the lives of their families, such as births, weddings, sickness, and transitions. Our curriculum is not based on dogma or any prescribed doctrine; rather, it’s designed to help you explore your own Oneness with life, and prepare you to help others embrace their divinity.
Through this certificate, you will explore a variety of spiritual traditions, consider the concepts of mysticism, and learn to practice mindfulness and how to teach others to do the same. You will learn about creating ceremony and sacred space, applying homiletics to ceremony, understanding the duties of a minister, and explore how to coach clients through death, dying, and hospice processes using an “spirit-directed” or “spirit-guided” coaching approach.
