SOM is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit educational and service organization. Courses offer the study of the mind through the application of metaphysics. Students learn meditation, dream interpretation, breath, visualization, healing and how to re-energize the mind and body, as well as how to use and apply the essential life skills of self-respect, undivided attention, concentration, memory, listening, breath, imagination, reasoning, intuition and entrainment. Students that attend the college have completed the first cycle of lessons and are ready for more advanced study. Currently, I have received my Doctorate of Divinity from the School of Metaphysics in November 2011. In December of 2012 I became an ordained minister in the Interfaith Church of Metaphysics. In March of 2013 I became certified as a Psi-Counselor and Dream Coach through the School of Metaphysics. I am the nurse at the campus—working with oils and herbs for relaxation and healing.
