5 GIFTS for an Abundant Life™ Prosperity Course is a powerful journey into the beliefs we hold around our willingness to BE abundant and prosperous. The vision for each student is to build a Consciousness of Wealth within them from which to manifest their hearts’ desires. Certified Facilitators guide participants to awakening to their abundant natures through a multi-faceted, multi-sensory learning adventure. Using your own personal stories in tandem with guided meditations, powerful readings, prayer pods and poignant experientials allows for the transformation of students into the freedom that comes from remembering to give. You will awaken participants into the realization that true abundance has a spiritual foundation and must be expressed from the inside out. You will witness your students experiencing profound change in every area of their lives.
In addition to contributing to the health and vitality of individual students, the 5 GIFTS Prosperity Course will ensure that your spiritual community has members who are conscious contributors to its success and thriving well-being.
"The 5 GIFTS for an Abundant Life Prosperity Program is a perfect fit for the integral model of ministry. It is a powerful tool to building community and ownership by educating and empowering people to become active, thriving, and fully participating members of their church organization."
Rev. Dr. Gary Simmons - author of The I of the Storm: Embracing Conflict, Creating Peace and Assistant Vice President Integral Operations, Association of Unity Churches International
HOW TO FACILITATE THIS COURSE
5 GIFTS for an Abundant Life™ Prosperity Course is designed to immerse participants in the full embodiment and practice of 5 spiritual principles (for which GIFTS is an acronym) that activate true change:
INTENTIONS (Setting and Manifesting)
FORGIVENESS (Self and Others)
The classes are offered in a three-hour format in a casual group setting for 8 consecutive weeks. Each week’s schedule includes meditation, opening prayer, student sharing, the lesson, collection of tithes, an experiential and small-group prayer circles. Students will be asked to complete reading and other projects between classes.
Each student receives:
· A copy of the 5 GIFTS for an Abundant Life book
· A professionally produced 5 GIFTS for an Abundant Life workbook – a 124-page library of quotes from 23 authors writing about Gratitude, Intentions, Forgiveness, Tithing and Surrender
· A CD of two guided meditations that reinforce the GIFTS of Surrender and Self Forgiveness
NOTE: There is a dedicated emphasis on the GIFT of Tithing, and thus participants will be introduced to the opportunity to tithe for the full eight weeks of the Course in the first lesson. They will be asked to sign a “Commitment in God” to share 10% of their income with the Sponsoring Organization. As a Certified Facilitator, you will have the opportunity - and challenge – of supporting your students to move through their fear and resistance and into active participation in the powerful Law of Circulation that assures an abundant life.
Along with the commitment to practice tithing of money, your students will be expected to give of their time to attend classes, pray for their prayer partners and complete all assignments, in order to reap the full benefits of your 5 GIFTS Course.
“Rev. Diane Harmony is truly a Master Prosperity teacher. Her 5 GIFTS program is an advanced program that invites the attendees to total transformation. She has taken five teachings that are found in all spiritual programs and has woven them together into a perfect tapestry of wholeness. The teachers who teach this program and the students who take it will not be the same after they complete it. The Five Gifts for an Abundant Life Course enables the students to experience and learn on all levels. Anyone who is serious about their spiritual growth should consider this a required program. It is a wonderful class to use as a membership requirement or a must for all potential board members to take. I recommend this program without any reservations and welcome any questions.” Rev. Suzanne Carter, M.A., Associate minister, Unity Church of Denver
WHY 5 GIFTS FOR AN ABUNDANT LIFE IS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PROSPERITY COURSES?
The 5 GIFTS Course was created to take a unique approach to learning and embodying Abundance Principles:
This Course is presented “live” and demands the consciousness of the Certified Facilitator to inspire his/her students, and hold the space for their transformation.
These classes are predicated on the premise that we all hold the wisdom of Truth within us, so personal sharing is emphasized to allow participants to teach each other.
The Course materials include a book written by the author, a comprehensive workbook that provides a wide scope of writings from renowned teachers and a CD of professionally recorded meditations.
Students benefit from a multi-sensory teaching presentation including writing assignments, guided imagery, dyad dialog and creative arts, as well as small group prayer support.
Students report that this is a powerful Prosperity Program “with heart.”
5 GIFTS Prosperity Course compliments and is a great addition to create a well- balanced Prosperity Track of Abundance Classes.
