NEW COURSE BEGINS APRIL 6th 2019
The Foundation in Light is a unique course in the spiritual understanding and working knowledge necessary to nurture and develop a life in healing – whether for yourself and those around you, or to take a healing path into a career as a therapist. This course provides all the building blocks for a Foundation to reach into, and towards, all your potentials. Many students have found the course to be truly life changing.
The course is over 12 months and there will be a Certificate of Completion which assists entry on all The Light of Hope CIC College of Light Diploma courses. The ‘Foundation’ course is experiential and aims to develop good spiritual ‘housekeeping’ of both a personal and environmental nature, and will be of interest to all, whether or not a career in healing is the ultimate goal.
The ‘Foundation’ course encompasses all aspects of personal energy, meditation and self-healing techniques. It brings an appreciation and understanding of holistic therapies – why and how they work. Students will experience healing – both giving and receiving. Dimensions beyond the physical will be covered – including guides, angels, masters; life beyond the physical and connections to those who have passed to the light.
An understanding of the many levels of life beyond our physical and planetary nature is key to our role on the earth at this time and the course aims to give the individual a very real perspective to their own place in the divine plan.
The course involves one full Saturday each month (Foundation Days) and one Monday evening 7pm -8.30pm for ‘Steps’ teachings.
- Each student will be allocated a personal mentor to guide and support their development
- Students, as part of their personal development, will be required to attend a minimum of two evening group meditations per month. They may attend as many meditations as they wish.
- There will be a student card pass ‘Ticket to Light’ which will access all available events to ‘Foundation’ students.
- The ‘Foundation in Light’ course is non-denominational and open to all irrespective of religious, social or academic background
- Students who do not register for the total ‘Foundation’ course may attend each study day or event separately and individually, and pay accordingly.

Grow Your Tenner!
We are delighted to be part of this wonderful campaign that literally doubles donations made via the LocalGiving “Grow Your Tenner” programme.

Simply, for every donation of £10 we receive, the Grow Your Tenner fund doubles that donation to £20 and there is also an option for Gift Aid that would increase the donation further to £22.50. (Donations can be made up to £30 via the site, although only £10 of this is doubled.)

Meditation for Colin
As you may know Colin Hughes passed away last Saturday (peacefully at his sisters in Northumbria). His funeral is on 12th August at 2.30pm at Durham Crematorium.
For those unable to make the journey but who may wish to remember Colin, we are
having a meditation at the Hope Centre in his memory and to be of joy in celebration of a lovely guy who helped so many and brought a smile to so many faces.
You may not even know Colin’s second name! He came regularly to Meditation and introduced many of his friends and colleagues. He was often sporting a funny T shirt, Loud waistcoat, Bright/Jokey socks and always blessed us with his droll sense of humour. He was a great support and inspiration to many struggling and recovering from their difficulties.
If you wish to come to mediate with us please let me know (no need to book but it will help with catering if we know vague numbers).
PLEASE forward this information to anyone you know who may be interested to come and join in spirit with Colin’s friends and family up in the North East. Please also feel free to use your Social media to let Colin’s many friends know that we will be remembering him on 12 August.
