Illuminating the beauty of the human spirit.
At the Center for Inspired Wisdom, we are always learning. As the educational outreach branch of Jwalan Muktikã School for Illumination (JMSI), we offer a diverse and innovative range of educational experiences that invite deeper exploration and transformation.
“You cannot transform anyone, not even yourself. All you can do is create a space for transformation to happen, for grace and love to enter.”
~ Eckhart Tolle
CIW dedicates itself to exploring, teaching, and embracing new ideas. In our practice and in what we teach, we place great emphasis on health and wellness, personal spiritual growth, self-awareness, and the role the environment plays in our lives.
Throughout the year, Center for Inspired Wisdom hosts a variety of insightful and provocative programs. Our signature programs include:
The Speaker Series
Held weekly in six week segments Fall-Spring, this series features a rotating schedule of speakers, with diverse topics such as healthy eating with the seasons, authentic relationships, exploring our connection with nature, and ways to stay energetically balanced. It’s a great opportunity to become more familiar with the JMSI tools, meet like-minded people and learn more about yourself.
