We are so excited to announce our new professional Interspiritual Companioning & Counseling training program!

ISCC was informed to address the ever-changing challenges so prevalent in the world today. We recognize the growing understanding that fitting into "a neat spiritual box" may no longer suffice and there is a growing need for trained spiritual counselors to support spiritual seekers in cultivating their inner wisdom.

Please join us for our first info session on Wednesday, February 24th, at 7pm EST, for what is sure to be an engaging, thoughtful, spirit-filled evening in community. We'll engage in sharing and practice while learning more about ISCC and its facilitators!

We'll invite you to contemplate your:
Curiosity about your purpose and how this work might fulfill that
Desire for a more fulfilling life in sharing your gifts in more uplifting and meaningful ways
Commitment to service that's been ignited through your personal life experiences

And if you've arrived at a place of strong clarity and readiness to begin your development as an Interspiritual Companion/Counselor, learn more about if this program is a good fit for you. We hope to see you on February 24th!
