“My strong feeling is that the best way to learn anything is to teach it. We teach best what we need to learn. That has been my experience and I’m forever grateful for my continued expansion and healing. I believe that spiritual counseling is part Divine calling and part skill. That skill is part intuition and part learned. I feel that one of the greatest ways I can be truly helpful is to support those lightworkers who are willing to answer this call to serve humanity as a spiritual counselor.

My aspiration is to offer a multi-layered, thorough and profoundly deep, rigorous training for those who would like to become masterful at Spiritual Counseling. This includes opening up your intuition, healing your life, and becoming truly masterful. For most of us this is something we achieve over many years of deep inner work, training and study. It took me 6 years of work to feel that I was finally becoming an excellent spiritual counselor that could be truly helpful to my brothers and sisters. I’m so grateful I can support those who feel this is their calling” Jennifer Hadley
