with Patricia Cizewski
Serving Spirit is a new class being offered for mediums who want to serve at Spiritualist churches. The First Spiritualist Church of Salem has a long and respected history for training mediums in the nearly lost art of inspirational speaking, allowing your spirit guide to speak through you rather than preparing an address in advance of the service. Often, inspirational speaking involves a state of light trance and a very close and strong connection with your spirit guide.
Just as anyone can learn the basics of mediumship and tune into spirits, so, too, can inspirational speaking be learned. This class is rooted in the Spiritualist approach to mediumship including the study of Natural Laws, learning light trance, healing for the public service, leading inspired guided meditations (especially for healing), conducting the Spiritualist service, and how to prepare for and deliver an inspirational talk.
Class will include discussion, methods, exercises, meditation, and platform practice. Direct messages will be the primary modality for message work. The development circle may be periodically used for mediumship enhancement and connection with our guides, but does form the central focus of the class. Prerequisites for this class are as follows:
Must be at least 18 years of age.
Must be a member of a Spiritualist church or must currently serve Spiritualist churches.
Must have completed at least one year in a mediumship development class and
Want to become ready to serve from the Spiritualist platform
Want to learn inspirational speaking to improve your service on the Spiritualist platform
Want to expand your skills into conducting Spiritualist services and meditations
Because this class is for the dedicated Spiritualist who is serving Spirit, or is readying to do so, an application is required with a casual interview via Zoom and acceptance into the program by the Pastoral Committee. You may be a member of any Spiritualist church: independent, NSAC, AFSC, etc. This is an on-site class facilitated by Patricia Cizewski.
Serving Spirit is a 10-week program beginning Wednesday, September 27 from 7pm-9pm. $100 class fee ($50 for First Spiritualist Church of Salem members who are also enrolled in either Explore Your Gifts or Awakening Spirit). Please use the Contact Us form to request your application form.
