Ordination Track Courses The Wisdom Lovers :
The Origins of Rational Thought and the Paranormal
Next Course Begins Fall, 2018
Dr Moody brings the origins of thought about life after death to a new dimension by indoctrinating the student into the Eleusinian Mysteries and the Greek view of the afterlife. This is quickly followed with secrets of shamanic rituals, hidden in childhood toys and rhymes.
In this course work, the student is instructed in depth on how to recognize the difference between a profound spiritual experience and delusions.
The true spiritual and otherworldly connections are seperated from religion and dogma in such a way that the graduate theologian will find amazing.
Tools for conversing successfully with skeptics, leading a congregation and profound personal growth are all benefits of this course work.
Lesson topics are covered in three personal all day workshops with Dr. Moody over a period of four months and distance study by way of DVDs and telephone conferencing. In his pilot program classes, held over a period of two years, this information has been honed to an art and science of delivering information in the most effective way for maximum student absorption.

Dr. Moody studied philosophy at the University of Virginia, United States, where he obtained a B.A. , an M.A. and a Ph.D in the subject. He also obtained a Ph.D in psychology from the University of West Georgia, then known as West Georgia College, where he later became a professor in that topic. In 1976, he was awarded an M.D. from the Medical College of Georgia. In 1998 Moody was appointed Chair in Consciousness Studies at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
Raymond Moody is the foremost expert on the phenomenon of near-death experience (he is called "the father of the near death experience"), as well as a compelling lecturer on the subjects of evocation of the deceased, cult activities, out-of-body experiences, the paranormal and the relationship of the paranormal to the performing arts, and the interconnections between humor and health. He has appeared on several national television programs as an expert guest about these subjects.
An award winning author and scholar, Dr. Moody received the World Humanitarian Award in Denmark in 1988, as well as a bronze medal in the Human Relations Category at the New York Film Festival for the movie version of Life after Life. An impassioned researcher, Moody first became interested in the phenomenon of near-death experiences during his medical training. Since that time, he has written seven books about the subject and created the Dr. John Dee Memorial Theater of the Mind, a facility that enables people to experience altered states of consciousness for the purposes of education, entertainment and spiritual advancement.
