The Inner Call to Self and Service

SEND is a seven-module program of personal development and professional growth for adult learners of all ages and faith traditions and from all life experiences and professional disciplines. The program is organized around seven experiential learning modules designed to lead participants into a deep and compassionate understanding of Self and toward an awareness of the unique gifts they have to offer in service to others.
Seven Modules
Weekend modules occur every three months. Dates for the modules will be finalized as registration is completed for the cohort. The modules move students through seven universal stages of self awakening and development following the seven chakras as a process map. The modules focus successively on understanding the power of each chakra and learning to balance and integrate the wisdom of these centers into one's life expression. Through lecture, journaling, art, music, meditation, body focusing and ritual, students learn to connect mindfully with the deep presence within themselves as a guide for daily life.
