What is a Practitioner?
Practitioners are here to help.
We know that with God all things are possible. Therefore, whatever the problem, there is always an answer. When a problem defies our imagination, when we cannot see what went wrong, when we are willing to be healed of that within us which brought the situation about, a Practitioner can help. A Practitioner uses his/her own mind to get clear about you and your desire, so that the One Mind in which we all live and move and have our being, will work positively in your life.
A Practitioner is a person of high spiritual consciousness and deep understanding, trained in the study of the Science of Mind, and in the art, science and skill of Affirmative Prayer. Practitioners are dedicated to the cause of helping others, licensed to practice professionally, and bound by a high code of ethics to respect your privacy.
To become a certified Practitioner a person must complete a rigorous multi-year required course of study, pass comprehensive written exams and be approved by an oral panel consisting of ministers and practitioners. Their licenses are renewed every year after approval of required continuing education credits and service hours.
Why Use a Practitioner?
Practitioners are a healing arm of the centre. A good description! When you need an arm around you or a shoulder to lean on, a Professional Practitioner is there – trained, compassionate, and most important, clear about your innate divinity. Your Practitioner will pray with you and keep you in a loving consciousness of prayer to support you in:
- Eliminating conditions that are not working for your good
- Exploring the use of spiritual law to create the life you desire
Talk to a Practitioner if you are in need of inspiration, celebration of a major event in your life and/or healing in any area: financial, relational, health or career. You are God's wondrous gift. Let a Practitioner remind you of that!
Practitioners are available for:
- Prayer support before and after the services
- Prayer support for all requests submitted to the prayer ministry
- Making visits to congregants at hospitals and care facilities
- Supporting funeral and memorial services
- Teaching and assisting in classes
- Holding the "High Watch" at important functions
- Spiritual check-up: A birthday gift of a session with a Practitioner of your choice
It is an honor and privilege for a practitioner to support you in any of these areas.
How can I access a Practitioner?
Practitioners are available on Sundays to pray with you. They are also available for private, individual spiritual guidance on a fee basis. Feel free to call a practitioner and ask for their fee schedule and location.
What is the fee a Practitioner charges?
Practitioners conduct their own professional practices, seeing individuals on a fee basis in one-on-one sessions. The fee is established at the time an appointment is made. The fee is not for prayer, but rather for the practitioner's time, training, skill and professional knowledge of spiritual principles and practices that can enhance one's life. Financial arrangements are flexible and need not be a deterrent to receiving services.
The relationship between the practitioner and the client is one of utmost confidence, integrity and trust. It is essential to the practitioner-client relationship that all information shared is kept in the strictest confidence.
