ABOUT THE MINISTRY SCHOOL

Circle Of Miracles is a Nondenominational Interfaith Spiritual Community. In keeping with our mission statement, Circle of Miracles is multi-faith, welcoming of all religions, and supports individuals in fostering their personal Spiritual connection and growth. 

The Ministry School at Circle of Miracles is designed to develop a deep connection to the Self and thus, the Source of all that is. The Ministry School program is designed to encompass diverse religious approaches and spiritual paths, realizing we are not a separate self, but a unique expression of the Singular Reality one may call God. Through participation in the Ministry School, a Reverend in Training will learn to go within themselves, to explore who they are and what they truly believe in their hearts; only then are they able to minister to others and perform sacred rites and rituals.

During the course of study, our Reverends in Training will learn much about spirituality, world religions, sacred ceremonies, their own belief systems and more. This program is comprehensive, expansive and inclusive of a variety of material, perspectives and opportunities for self-exploration. Our curriculum incorporates a dynamic classroom structure along with independent study, experiential workshops, religious center visits, community service outreach, and a practicum. 

The Ministry School meets for a total of 13 weekend workshops. They are comfortably spaced approximately 6 to 8 weeks apart over ~18 months. Please contact us for details and dates. Our first weekend will be September 15th, 2017. 


AREAS OF FOCUS

  • Spiritual Coaching: Study, learn and use Sacred Listening, Compassionate Communication, Ethics, Principles for Guidance in Spiritual Affairs
  • Spiritual Practice: Examine your connection to Spirit/God through deep personal inquiry, Prayer, Meditation, and Journaling.
  • Divine Communication: Strengthen your own confidence in and practice with communication with the divine: whether that be your higher self, God, angelic energies or simply by seeing the God in everyone and all that is. 
  • World Spirituality: Find commonalities among the major world religions to understand the Oneness through research, reflection, and authentic experience
  • Body-Awareness: Bring awareness of Spirit's interaction with our physical being

The School offers many inspiring opportunities for self exploration, development and spiritual growth, as well as the practicalities of being an interfaith minister. 

If you are interested in more information please consider attending an Open House or setting up an appointment to talk with a member of the faculty. After we receive your application we will set up an interview with you to determine if it is a mutually beneficial fit. Upon admittance to the program you will be asked to read a book before our first weekend workshop begins.
