Courses – Overview

What We Teach

The spiritual education program previously offered by Rev. Dr. Carla Ryan continues to evolve and grow with the addition and/or modification of electives and advanced courses … delivered by different media options … all of which are designed to support and enhance the student’s journey toward expanded consciousness, and a deeper understanding of the Divine Presence and their own beliefs.

Workshops and courses allow students to participate fully, learn in a caring environment, and grow spiritually in beliefs and consciousness. Transformation on an individual basis can and will transform the planet.

As part of Dr. Carla’s Interfaith focus, video “lectures” are also provided on her YouTube channel.
