Empowering Spiritual Teachers

There is a growing hunger in Western culture to find meaning, purpose and connectedness in our lives free from the traditional route that has been rooted in dogma and doctrine.   Authentic Freedom Ministries is leading the charge by empowering teachers to assist us along this path.

Calling All Magdalenes!

Authentic Freedom Teacher Training is officially in full swing.  Women and men are coming out of the woodwork who have either read Authentic Freedom and been inspired by the tools presented or taken the classes and experienced the life-changing effect of employing its principles.  All this is in keeping with the vision of Authentic Freedom Ministries:

To be a global presence in spiritual formation, grounded in contemplative prayer and empowered service.

I affectionately refer to these men and women as “The Magdalenes” because I consider Mary Magdalene to be the Apostle who most closely reflected the contemplative lifestyle and compassion of Jesus and who most clearly understood the tools through which we can transcend the fears of the human condition and release that which separates us from God, from ourselves and from one another.  When we embrace these principles, we understand that we are all One and are freed of the fears that come out of this false perception of separation and block our way to peace, love and joy.

The Teachers’ Role

The role of the Authentic Freedom teacher is to be a source of support for those looking for meaning, purpose and connectedness in their lives by facilitating the Authentic Freedom curriculum.  Authentic Freedom transcends centuries of dogma to reveal the powerful and life-changing message at the heart of Jesus’ teachings and the universal truths at the core of every religion. The best part about this curriculum and why people love it so much is that they don’t have to throw Jesus out with the bathwater.  This is an important piece for those raised Catholic or any other Christian denomination who appreciate the compassion and justice of Jesus’ message but who struggle with how it is sometimes presented by institutions as punitive, judgmental or divisive.  Instead, Authentic Freedom reveals a dynamic and unifying path of spiritual transformation and empowerment that speaks to people of all beliefs thereby allowing us to embrace the truth of love that Jesus taught while honoring the truth of love as taught through other spiritual traditions – again, setting aside separation and embracing oneness.

The Bonus

It is easy to see the application of Authentic Freedom in spirituality and religion, and it is important to recognize that it doesn’t stop there.  Those who are seeking empowerment as Authentic Freedom Facilitators recognize the far-reaching benefits of these tools in the following fields:
