FOUNDATIONS OF SPIRITUAL PSYCHOLOGY I

The time has come to rise up and address the areas of our minds and bodies that are not in alignment with our Soul's Purpose for being alive!  This time in global history is the dawning of the Age of Awareness.  And that starts within our own Self.   Foundations of Spiritual Psychology I is a progressive, 6-month intensive that gives students a life-enhancing opportunity to explore their inner terrain using  Spiritual Psychology principles and skills.  Participants gain valuable, real- life tools that help to transform ego-based living into Soul referenced reality.  Students learn how to:  come into loving resonance with who they are, recognize the Light within themselves and others, communicate more consciously and effectively, release old patterns of judgement, shift out of the negative mind, and navigate life with more grace, joy, abundance and authenticity.  And most importantly, graduates of this intensive will begin the process of residing in their natural and pure state of Loving as a regular response to life!  Class meets one weekend per month beginning January and completing in June.   Facilitators for this program are:  Siddiqa Salter and Maria Ashirah

NATURE MEDICINE  AND HUMAN REWILDING

The definition of rewilding is to return land back to its natural and pure state or to reintroduce animals back to their natural habitat. As humans, we have evolved from living slow, nature-based, rhythmic lives to becoming fast paced, industrialized, technology-driven people. The rewilding of humans is not about returning to our former hunter-gatherer ways but about re-establishing connectivity to the natural world. Humans are not thinking machines but intuitive, organic companions to nature and Her cosmic ways. Participants of the Nature Medicine and Human Rewilding Program will learn: intuitive practices for awakening inner knowing, animism and how it impacts the truth of life, ancestral skills and Shamanic healing practices, spiritual aromatherapy, how to form intimate bonds with the plants and trees, how to reclaim the expansive nature of the mind and release fear, worry and doubt, and how to re-establish authentic movement in the body temple. This is a 10-month course of study, that begins in March and completes in December. There are 4 weekend intensives that meet with the seasons and one Saturday exploratory session a month during the other 6 months of the program. Much of the classroom study is experienced outside, in protected natural settings, where nature entrainment takes place and the experience of rewilding can occur. Facilitators of this program are: Siddiqa Salter, Marianne Mitchell and Cynthia Olivera.

KUNDALINI YOGA AND MEDITATION:

Tuesdays, 7pm-8:30pm:  Kundalini Yoga & Meditation for Strength and Grounding

Thursdays, 10am-11:30am:  Kundalini Yoga & Meditation for Compassion and Grace

ONLINE Meditation Circle:  Sundays, 9pm-10pm EST:  Meditation for Spiritual Awareness and Accessing Your Loving

From the comfort of your own home, join Siddiqa for a weekly online/phone meditation circle.  This gathering is the perfect way to end the weekend and bring conscious intention to the new week ahead.  Each week, we will practice specific breath work, mantra  and meditations that directly correspond to the current astrological and Earth Mother influences we are under .  The meditation is strategically being held at 9pm on Sunday evenings so you can float into an elevated state of tranquility, clarity and deep peace before bed. The intention of this class is to bring about profound  spiritual expansion and a heightened awareness of your Light body.  Remember - how you begin your week matters!  Bringing consciousness and creative intention to each week will set you up for  a life of more joy, more flow and more love!  You can register anytime for this class.

Founders Note:  The Institute of Loving is not an island, nor is it the single manifestation of its Founding Director, Siddiqa Salter.  Without the following teachers heartfelt guidance and tutelage, the Institute of Loving would not exist today - enormous thanksgiving goes out to:   Drs. Ron and Mary Hulnick of the University of Santa Monica; Barry Kapp, Audre Guitierrez and Cyntihia Olivera of Wisdom of the Earth Essential Oils; Reverend Michael Beckwith of Agape International Spiritual Center; Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan and Telema Hess of the Sufi Order; Bobbi Tighe of the former Main Line Yoga; Maureen Malone and Toni Lo Mastro of the Philadelphia Rebirthing Center; Greg Lynn of the Peace Weavers;  Gurmukh, Sada Sat Singh and Sada Sat Kaur of  Kundalini Yoga; and this precious planet we call home - Mother Earth. 

Which program is for me?

Foundations of Spiritual Psychology I is a personal growth program that teaches valuable skills and practices to improve our personal lives, careers, communication effectiveness and how joyfully we respond to life.  Spiritual Psychology principles benefit psychotherapists, counselors, life coaches, massage therapists, energy workers, yoga and fitness instructors, teachers, managers, executives, health care practitioners,  and those interested in improving their relationship with themselves and others.  This course of study will bring you more into your Light body and will guide you into living more from your Soul line while having more compassion for yourself and others when coming from the ego line.  It is truly a gift of grace and knowledge that will quite literally change your life.  It is a foundational must for anyone committed to bringing more Light and Loving into the world and for all interested in healing consciousness.

Nature Medicine and Human Rewilding is for people desiring a more intimate and profound relationship with the natural world.  This program helps to re-establish your connectivity with your body, your intuition, the plant and tree kingdom, ancestral knowledge, Shamanic practices, and your life force.  Nature Medicine and Human Rewilding will benefit anyone feeling disconnected, like they don't belong, different from those who live in the 'box', in need of sourcing from something bigger and more expansive than one's self and all Mother Earth lovers.  This is an exquisitely beautiful course of study that attunes you to the cosmic rhythms of life and ignites your juicy, alive, joy-filled, peaceful true self.
