Wow! I found this class extremely valuable because Angela not only knows the material, she’s an expert with the online teaching platform. It is amazing how she creates the space for vulnerability and deep listening online. I highly recommend this class to uplevel your life experience while expanding practitioner and minister skills.

A Deeper Understanding

My heartfelt thanks to Rev Jim Starke and Rev Mary Altalo for making this class a great arena for learning. We read and discussed HIGH MYSTICISM by Emma Curtis Hopkins which at first to me was a steep climb. But each class became easier with knowledgeable leaders and fellow classmates illuminating the path. I am grateful to have shared this class with all the talented people who offered so many pearls of wisdom.
In the future when I read this book, it will be blessed with a deeper understanding.

My first online class

Recently completed a class conducted by Rev. Jim Starke highlighting High Mysticism by Emma Curtis Hopkins.
It was totally a 10 concerning what I gained in both knowledge and enjoyment. The combination of study preparation, instructor leadership and class participation was great. I would certainly recommend this delivery method for anyone seeking to expand their knowledge for this subject.

Thunder of Silence

I’m having more fun working on understanding higher consciousness with fellow classmates. We share and ask questions and share personal experiences. The instructor Jim is a gentle teacher, listens and shares his insights.


No Mud, No Lotus w/ Rev. Michelle

We have been taking Rev. Michelle Wadleigh’s class, “No Mud, No Lotus.”  It is excellent.  It has been a real opening.  -TP

No Mud No lotus

No Mud No Lotus was a powerful four week adventure. Rev. Michelle left us wanting more. There is a penetrating depth to her teaching and it has staying power. She not only invites you to “up your game”, she provides tools to do so.

Thank you Rev. Jim for providing a platform for workshops and teachings. I have enjoyed the classes I have attended with Spirit Education, and continue to keep you on my radar!

No Mud, No Lotus

I signed up for this course as a review on “forgiveness to freedom”. I would recommend this course to all who have journeyed this path and those who have not. It was focused, well prepared and nuggets shared by all. The dyads are a great way to meet others and to experience sharing. Rev. Michelle assigned us the material in advance to ready us for each class. Her passion for this course is released in love. She creates a safe place for one and all to be vulnerable and to go as deep as you wish. You are never alone in this class. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Many Blessings of freedom and joy!

Shifting Perspectives

The “No Mud, No Lotus” class continues to be very valuable for me as I’m shifting my perspective as I recognize how past events warp my current experiences, causing them to feel less than what they are. I’m seeing a greater Truth that is quite sweet & so supportive. Yay!
