Course assisting offers people an opportunity to expand on the many gifts they already have, while also advancing their skills in energy work, teaching and leadership, personal development and empowerment. We hold very specific intentions for the blossoming of these skills as described below.
Our intention is first and foremost to create the team that will best serve Jan Engels-Smith, the Associate Teachers and the LightSong students. We do our best to have a balanced mix of experience levels in our assisting teams to give new assistants the opportunity to learn from more experienced team members. Thank you for your willingness to serve your community in this way. We appreciate you!
