The very popular Institute for Spiritual Development (ISD) Study Group platform combines individual home study with collective group study, discussions and exercises. The study group format appeals to the spiritual intellectual who enjoys self-study combined with lively group dialogues.

Study materials are sent out via email prior to the first class. Included in the email are the materials and study instructions in preparation to the first class. Participants are expected to print and organize their own materials. Home study and exercises are an important part of the Study Group Courses.

Individuals that complete all the ISDTC Healers courses and homework are qualified to apply as Certified Healers for the Institute for Spiritual Development Treasure Coast. Rev. Beth Franks is leading the Healing Committee and ISDTC Healers Certificate Program.

Healing Classes in the program can be taken by anyone who has an interest. The classes are not limited to the ISDTC Healing Certificate program. A full program schedule will be posted in the near future.

The Laws of the Universe Workshop

The next Laws of the Universe Workshop will take place in 2020. 

Member Discount $75,  Friend of ISDTC $100

By now, you must have noticed the unmistakable order that is present in the Universe. This Order is in the stars and the seasons, and it is in all things — living or– inanimate. This Order is in our very Being. This “Universal Order” is actually sustained by a set of Laws — Laws that operate subtlety on every plane of expression. Humanity has always sought knowledge of, and power over, these “secrets of the Universe.”

The wisdom of ancient Egyptian philosopher Hermes Trismegistus defined and revealed those secrets, which are known as the “Laws of the Universe.” Understanding of these Laws, the philosopher believed, was the key to mastery over every life experience. The Kybalion, published in 1908, is said to be the definitive codification of Hermes Trismegistus’ key teaching about the Laws of the Universe, which are the foundation of ISDTC’s principles, and can be found as part of just about every religion that exists today.

Through fascinating lecture and spirited discussion, this one day workshop explores the Seven Hermetic Principles revealed in The Kybalion. Participants will learn how to grasp, understand and utilize their tremendous power. The course provides a basic understanding of metaphysics, and metaphysical thought. It is highly recommended for all new ISDTC members. This is a required course for ISDTC Ministerial Students.

Come ready to think, reflect, examine and discuss not only the Laws - but how YOU are a unique manifestation of these Universal Principles!
