A Metaphysics Doctoral Degree Will Aid Your Life and Career in Many Ways
Accelerated Metaphysics PhD Degree Program
The Spiritual Counseling / Spiritual Counselor degree is the primary metaphysics path for students who desire to conduct spiritual counseling, transpersonal counseling, life coaching, write books, do training or speaking, practice holistic arts, conduct pastoral social work, and more. This specialization will teach students our proprietary style of coaching/counseling called Life Leadership Coaching --A Transpersonal Approach to Self-Completeness. This intensive program teaches students many practical life skills with the intention of better helping clients, as well as many specific coaching/counseling techniques. Life Coaching focuses on helping clients achieve goals and overcome personal and professional challenges whereas Spiritual Counseling primarily addresses the spiritual nature of client issues and is an integral part of pastoral counseling. Students will learn techniques for both modalities so that they may be better equipped to address a variety of client needs. Graduates are provided with a full complement of discovery and analysis forms as well as two different behavioral profiles to use in their practices and training.
This specialization requires ordination in the International Church of Metaphysical Humanism (ICMH) (included) or in another bona-fide religious institution if a student does not want an ICMH ordination. Ordinations from the Universal Life Church are acceptable.
