Empowering Relationships 1
Being empowered to have great relationships is an important key to a fulfilling life. Learn about your 8 core needs and how to beat co-dependence.

Prerequisite: Empowering Relationships 1
Stage Two – A Brighter Future
Stage one seminars are prerequisites to subsequent stages.
Yoga of the Mind
The mind is an instrument of our soul, and when we learn to connect with our soul our consciousness transforms. Yoga means union and can be used to help us to attain peace and enlightenment. Yoga of the Mind builds on Ignite Your Spirit and helps us learn to still our minds, using ancient techniques to erase negative thought patterns, fears and self-defeating beliefs and ideas. Astounding changes in consciousness frequently occur during the seminar, and life changes afterwards are often profound. Break free of old grudges and negative habits and put in place new healthy foundations. Learn more about how to care for your developing energy body and add more healing techniques to your repertoire.
We can transform our hearts and minds into pure channels of Divine love and consciousness. Every person has the capacity to do this. When we achieve soul connection the business of living takes place much more gracefully.
We understand a lot more about what is going on and why, and how we can respond in an intelligent way to the ups and downs in life. Relationships improve noticeably. Problems just seem to melt away.
Prerequisite: Stage 1 seminars
DIMENSIONS OF WEALTH
In Dimensions of Wealth we teach the art of Natural Manifesting. This is a method which aligns us with Universal design, which is Benevolence and Abundance. Wealth is both tangible and intangible. It includes having enough money to do whatever we want, as well as having the capacity to enjoy the Earth, care for our families, have great friends, and a real sense of who I am and why I am here.
Dimensions of Wealth
In this seminar we look at the way in which we either attract or repel good things in our lives. Starting with the Divine dimension in which everything already exists in perfection, we look at the role our minds play in enabling or disempowering us from living a heavenly life on Earth. It is not enough to set a new affirmation for prosperity: the existing mental ‘dandruff’ that keeps us disempowered, often buried deep within, needs to be excavated and released for optimal manifesting ability. In this course, you will carry out self-assessment and receive activations for wealth creation, heal deep blocks to wealth and find an empowering way to use the mind to attract the life you desire.
We learn potent affirmations to change our reality, study the five dimensions of wealth as well as spiritual laws that bind us, whether we like it or not. Knowing them makes life a lot easier to understand.
Activations of the base chakra, learning how to self-assess our individual capacity to manifest wealth, and exercises to improve wealth creation are imparted. We prepare for wealth by refining the physical dimension and understanding our role in anchoring Heaven on Earth.
Prerequisite: Yoga of the Mind
Stage Three – Amazing Grace
By this point you have already learnt tools for a more considered and joy-filled life. In Spiritual Mastery we put it all together. Building on all previous courses this acclaimed program will show you the big picture and where you can work most strategically to ensure that your life experience is uplifted and transformed, and your Divine relationship is permanently enhanced.
Spiritual Mastery 1
Learn the rules of the game of Life!
The twelve spiritual laws are part of the fabric of creation itself. We cannot avoid them, so we need to learn to understand and embrace them. When we start to work with the Law of the Universe, the Universe starts to work with us and then anything is possible!
Prerequisite: All previous Path of Ease and Grace Courses
Spiritual Mastery 2
In Spiritual Mastery 2 we explore 12 hallmarks of Spiritual Masters, with practical examples to help understand how Mastery can be lived. What should we be aspiring towards? What will bring us the greatest change internally and externally?
Measure your own progress in each of the 12 Hallmarks of Mastery. For each Hallmark, you will clearly understand what we are seeking to attain, as well as how to avoid the pitfalls on the path. Practices which support each hallmark of spiritual mastery are explained and vibrant spiritual energy helps us to absorb the teachings to transform our experience of life.
Prerequisite: Stage 1 and 2 courses, and Spiritual Mastery 1
Anchoring Heaven On Earth (formerly called Dimensions of Wealth 2)
We can do it! Life is what we make of it, and together we can co-create a more enlightened way of living. The Kingdom of Heaven can be found within, during this life when we access the riches of the 12 Mansions of the Soul. Find your spiritual wealth and anchor a vibrant, fulfilling and inspiring vision for your future. Life is a classroom and a vehicle for our evolution. As we continue our evolutionary journey the power of the miraculous makes itself known through us. Calling on the power of your soul and the stillness of your essence we coalesce the magnetic power known to the ancient seers. We enter into the flow of grace and put together everything we have so far learned on the Path of Ease and Grace.
Prerequisite: Spiritual Mastery 2
Repetition is an important part of any spiritual practice, and we encourage people to repeat these seminars to go deeper with the study. Anyone wanting to repeat the seminars can book in and attend on the basis they make a donation for the seminar and are not required to pay the fixed fee (although they can of course do so if that is the amount they choose to donate). A repeat student should be registered on our system as having completed the program already and it doesn’t matter where they first did the course or who taught them. Teachers will also give certificates of completion for each course, which should be kept to show prior study.
In accordance with our charitable philosophy we are also instituting a scholarship program. Full or partial scholarships will be offered at the discretion of Shanti Mission. A registered teacher or treating therapist must recommend a person for a scholarship and a certificate will be awarded to that student to help them partake of a particular program. They will be encouraged to give what they can either financially or through service. Partial and full scholarships will be available both for classes held at the Ashrams and for classes held by teachers in the general community, for people in genuine financial hardship. This way no sincere person will be prevented from attending any of our courses.
