Our powerful self-development courses are designed to provide the tools to expand consciousness, leverage universal energy to live a life of choice, and to embrace as possible that which previously seemed impossible! In other words, each course gives students the tools, the support and the guidance to help them move from their current belief systems, to embrace a life of greater possibilities. Meditation, visioning, affirmative prayer, experiential exercises and many other spiritual practices are included in each class.
One thing s for sure. You’ll feel more alive and alert than you’ve felt for years. You’ll find life more exciting and rewarding and you’ll find yourself living more on-purpose with a greater sense of love, compassion and inner peace. And, for those wishing to progress beyond the individual self-development classes, some of which are listed below, we offer practitioner (instructor) training and ministerial and leadership studies. Please select the SCHOOL OF SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP tab.
OUR CURRICULA :
THE FOUNDATIONS OF NEW THOUGHT AND SCIENCE OF MIND
This is the introductory course to the New Thought Spiritual philosophy and provides an in-depth look at the teachings of Ernest Holmes (author of the book The Science of Mind) and other teachers including Joel Goldsmith, Emma Curtis Hopkins, Emmett Fox and Joseph Murphy.
It’s a 10-class experiential course (30 hours in total) which provides a comprehensive perspective of the core concepts of practical spiritual living and teaches us how to move beyond what seems to be, and to learn proven methods to change our lives permanently for the better. We look at improving our financial abundance, increasing health and wholeness, moving from fear into faith, living in the flow of joy and gratitude, the creative process, developing and using effective affirmations and affirmative prayer, the 12 basic spiritual practices, forgiveness, and so much more.
How do you cope with life’s problems? Do you sometimes feel that you’re living in the middle of a storm and that everything possible is going wrong? Perhaps it’s a severe health challenge or a financial problem. Are you feeling fulfilled? How do you deal with things such as rejection, fear or anger? How do you find your purpose in life, or the right career path? How do you find what your ‘bliss’ is?
In this 8-class course we consider LASTING SUCCESS through a series of lessons in practical living. Each is designed to guide us on our own personal voyage of self-discovery, personal development and inner change. These are the constituent elements of successful living and on this journey, we’ll be looking at a whole range of issues which affect our everyday lives. This course is, in fact, a comprehensive guide to self-development and to living life more fully and meaningfully. The course is based on the book of the same name by Dr. Neil A. Mence.
THE POWER OF INTENTION
A great 8-class (24 hours in total) course on practical living which spans the many faces of intention. We learn the art of authenticity and letting go of ego, how to live a stress-free life and how to apply principles to living a life of purpose so that we attract the right work and relationships. In THE POWER OF INTENTION we uncover and express our individual genius which is the truth of our being. This course is based on the works of Frederick Bailes and Wayne Dwyer.

There is perhaps no deeper or more meaningful set of Master Classes available today in the New Thought arena.
THE POWER OF YOUR WORD
How much power and influence do our words and thoughts have? Would it surprise you to know that everything in our life - including the things we say we don’t want, are the result of our believing thoughts? How do we change our thinking and how do we choose words that are affirmative and will attract what we do want, rather than what we don’t want? That is the essence of this 7-class (21 hours in total) course in which we look at the wonderful writings of Florence Scovel Shinn.
YOU CAN HEAL YOUR LIFE
In this course we reach a greater understanding of the connection between our mind and our body and the important part that consciousness plays in the healing process. A whole range of topics related to health and well-being are considered such as how emotional states influence our body, beliefs regarding diseases and illnesses, the Spiritual healing of a physical condition, the connection between spirit-soul-body, and who we really are, as opposed to who we think we are. The course involves 24 hours discussion and classroom work spread over 8 classes. Louise Hay’s work is used as the basis for discussion periods.
One of our most popular courses, FINANCIAL FREEDOM helps us to develop the feeling of freedom so that we can experience and express ourselves without the limitations or restraint of worry about money. We deepen our relationship with prosperity, look at our beliefs about money, and come to understand that financial freedom means order, balance and abundance in our financial affairs. It doesn’t mean just having enough money to barely scrape through life with! The information provided during the 24 hours of this 8-class course will change your life forever.
How do you get on with other people? Perhaps more importantly, how do you get on with yourself? Do you lump people into groups of those you LIKE, don’t like, can’t stand, or find irritating?
We can't escape relationships, nor would we want to – they’re essential ingredients of our human experience. We’re always in a relationship of some type regardless of whether we’re conscious of it or not. In these classes we learn the art of effective relationship-building by first considering the most important relationship we’ll ever have in our life – the one we have with ourselves 24/7. And it’s here that we learn to realise, grow and express our self-respect, self-esteem and self-love. We’ll also look at our connection with other people – family, friends and those with whom we interact at work or in a social setting. How can we improve these relationships? How can we learn to make them more fulfilling, freeing and empowering? These are the types of things that we’ll investigate in this course.
SCIENCE & RELIGION
In this unique series of 10 classes (30 hours in total) we’ll enter the world of Quantum Mechanics, investigate the works of Stephen Hawking and Richard Dawkins, and study the 6 main religions (Buddhism, Christianity, Daoism, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism) as well as the historic religions of the aboriginal peoples of Australia, Asia and Africa.
SELF - MASTERY
Are you achieving your true potential? Are you happy with every aspect of your life? Do you feel secure, confident and successful 24/7? If you answered "no" to any of the above, consider this extensive 8-class course which provides a detailed overview of life to understand how things get to be the way they are. We learn to take control of our lives by exploring consciousness (thought, emotion, feeling, ego, etc.), relationships, self-esteem, faith and commitment, before learning how to integrate self-mastery into all areas of living.
adventures in meditation, visioning & affirmative prayer
This experientially-oriented course takes us on an inner journey of discovery that provides a totally new way of thinking, feeling and experiencing life. You’ll be stimulated to:
discover 8 enjoyable types of meditation including guided, chakra, colour imaging, breathing, movement (no you don’t have to stand on your head!), chanting, writing and mantras;
learn how to connect the spoken word with universal energy to give effective spiritual mind treatments (aka affirmative prayer) for both ourselves and other people; and

MEDITATION, AFFIRMATION & VISIONING
Learn and experience 8 of the basic types of meditation so that you can determine which one(s) work best for your personality and lifestyle. Hand-in-hand with meditation we delve into the world of affirmative prayer where we learn the essence of Spiritual Mind Treatment for ourselves and for others. In this 10-class course we learn how to relax and experience a fuller and more meaningful life, as well as the art of removing ourselves from distracting sounds, activities and confusion while we focus our attention inwardly in a receptive and listening manner.
METAPHYSICAL BIBLE INTERPRETATION
Ignite your life through Metaphysical Bible Interpretation. Have fun in this interactive 10-class course and learn how to interpret and read the Bible metaphysically. Through its lessons, awaken to the love, acceptance and wisdom available to you. Reveal and heal old beliefs, judgements and fears and apply these ancient teachings to your everyday life creating more freedom, purpose, love and joy. Based on the writings of Charles Fillmore, Emmett Fox, Thomas Troward, and Richard Elliott Friedman.
THOMAS TROWARD – THE EDINBURGH LECTURES
In 1859, Charles Darwin challenged conventional wisdom with his landmark and controversial book ON THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES. And then 45 years later, in 1904, Thomas Troward again challenged popular thinking through a series of lectures at Queen Street Hall, Edinburgh; lectures which would have a profound effect on the way we view the interaction between our thinking and what happens in our lives.
In this series of 8 classes we’ll look at Troward’s rationale for distinguishing between Spirit and matter, achieve a greater understanding of the unity of Spirit, and look at the two functions of mind and the law of growth. In the words of Thomas Troward, “We are accustomed to judge only by external appearances and by certain limited significances which we attach to words; but when we being to inquire into the real meaning of our words and to analyse the causes which give rise to the appearances, we find our old notions gradually falling off from us until at last we wake up to the fact that we are living in an entirely different world to that which we formerly recognised.”
One day and half-day workshops include a wide spectrum of subjects including:
