Inner Compass Academy is pleased to offer another course of study for the advanced practitioner - this one is for professional psychic mediums who are ready to share their gifts of spiritual mentorship.... 

How to Lead a Development Circle
with Joanne Franchina

You have been sharing your spiritual gifts in a professional capacity for some time, and you have experienced great satisfaction and fulfillment with your vocation.  Now you feel called to stretch (again!) and serve humanity in yet another way.  To share the personal joys that come from living life more intentionally and meaningfully.  To encourage in others the unfoldment of their intuitive, psychic, and mediumistic abilities.   

It is no coincidence that this course has captured your interest.  It will support you in taking this new direction, in stepping onto higher grounds in your role as a spiritual leader, and in trusting completely the Intelligent Design of the Universe.  

In this course, you will learn the key components of leading a mediumship development circle as part of a successful spiritual mentoring practice.  It will provide a solid foundation on which you can build this sacred community, including esoteric principles and practical applications.  This course of study covers:

  • Setting up the circle. Strategic considerations: the who, what, when, where, why, and how, of organizing a development circle. You will learn about various circle types, to help you design one that suits your leadership style, nurtures your circle members, and provides a harmonious environment for everyone involved; for example, whether open or closed, frequency and duration, ideal settings, a purpose for the circle, and persons and personalities to include and the functions that they will serve. 

  • Primary instruction.  That which is developed in the "development circle" depends on the purpose of the circle, such as expanded consciousness, compassion, or the unfoldment of intuitive/psychic/mediumistic abilities.  You will learn, experience, and facilitate core instructional activities, practices, and exercises that foster spiritual development that is illuminating, inspiring, and empowering for all kinds of circles.  

  • Meditation.  An essential component of a development circle, meditation (in and out of the circle) is the key to your participants' spiritual growth.  You will learn, experience, and facilitate meditations that are integral to many development circles, including progressive relaxations, breath meditations, focusing meditations, guided visualizations, spiritual journeys, and "sitting in the power" meditations.  

  • Message work.  Another primary component of development circles, message work is how your participants apply the skills and knowledge that you have shared.  You will learn, experience and facilitate the coaching of circle participants in receiving and sharing intuitive, psychic, and mediumistic messages for themselves and others. 
  • Demonstration.  As part of this course, you will design a development circle of your choosing, from concept to execution.  During our sessions, you will have the opportunity to demonstrate your facilitation skills in one or more core components of your circle, such as leading a meditation, an instructional exercise, or the practice of message work.  
"When the student is ready, the teacher appears."  You have come so far in your spiritual evolution; trust in the validity of your true heart's calling, and take the next steps on your path towards leadership.
