Here is what people are saying about the experience:

I was using a hit-or-miss form of service … I was frustrated … and was actually turning down opportunities to serve. This program offered me a way to be of greatest use to my field of service in a conscious and deliberate fashion. I am gaining confidence and seeing real results in my application of principles that I learned in this program.

I came into this program knowing a strong sense of my leadership responsibility and destiny. However, I was still plagued with a tendency towards reluctant leadership. The material offered through this course insured I could and would successfully address my limitations. People in my life have noticed that there is a leader in their midst as a direct result of this enlightened and effective program.

The Leadership Program has been jet fuel for my rocket ship to successful leadership. I received many tools for understanding others and myself. I have a new sense of maturity and can help others discover mastery for themselves. I have new confidence in public speaking, coaching and leading groups of people.

This is a program of intensive study, application and personal growth for those who are interested in developing their capacity as a leader. The program includes study in the following areas:

  • Coaching
  • Public speaking
  • Facilitation
  • Group leadership
  • Organizational leadership

The format of this year-long training will include:

  • Three face-to-face sessions of 4½ days each
  • Biweekly presentations via Internet meeting room and telephone
  • Biweekly small group sessions
  • Faculty and peer coaching
  • A program of personal practice, developed by the participant

The first face-to-face session will be at the beginning of the program, the second half-way through, and the final session at the end of the program.

If you have a strong sense that you have an important and unique gift to give other people, and that you need to take a step in your life to use that gift, this program is for you. The foundation of the program is an understanding of the creative process as it is mystically portrayed in the story of the seven days of creation. The writings of Lloyd Arthur Meeker and Martin Exeter are a primary reference. This in-depth understanding of the creative process is applied to the everyday experiences of a leader, and the practical dynamics of working with people.


Applicants should have prior experience in Emissary classes and seminars, and a good basic understanding of the creative principles taught by Emissaries of Divine Light.


The fee for the Leadership Program is $2,900 plus $1,125 for room and board at Sunrise Ranch during the three face-to-face sessions. Some scholarships are available, and we hope not to turn anyone away based on cost.
