Rituals and blessings enable people to find balance and healing, embark more confidently and joyously on their life and spiritual journeys, and to connect more deeply to that greater force that guides the universe. This workshop provides a basic blueprint of how to bring the healing and life-enhancing qualities of ritual and blessings into your everyday life by finding the “sacred” in every aspect of life. Adaptable to any religious tradition you follow, this workshop will focus on how to bring positive energy into your life through ritual and blessings, covering all of the important life rituals we humans perform (consciously and unconsciously) as well as challenging any limitations you may be feeling regarding life goals, wishes, dreams and beliefs…to help you center and balance your life. Whether you are in the process of transforming your life or home, building a personal altar, or mastering the art of “mindfulness”, this workshop will give you the tools to focus more clearly and to touch into your own spiritual awareness more deeply.  


Todd Jay Leonard’s life journey has taken him to the far reaches of the world where he has studied, taught, researched, traveled, and worked in North, South, Central America, Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia. An ordained Spiritualist minister and university professor, Rev. Professor Leonard has actively sought out spiritual knowledge from the time he was a child. He has studied religion formally, and as a hobby, for most of his life. He is currently on the Board of Directors for the Southwest Commission on Religious Studies (SWCRS) and serves as Secretary for the Association for the Scientific Study of Religion (ARRS). The importance he now places upon self-awakening and self-healing has its roots in the energy-based therapy of Reiki. Trained in the Usui Shiki Ryoho system of Reiki, he is a Master-Teacher. He divides his time between his home in Japan (where he lives, teaches and writes) and the historic Bangs Sisters’ home at Camp Chesterfield, the spiritual home for the Indiana Association of Spiritualists (IAOS). Rev. Professor Leonard lectures internationally on education, comparative culture, and spiritually-based topics; he has published extensively in academic journals, magazines, and newspapers in the areas of cross-cultural understand, Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL), and religious studies. He is the author of twenty books, most notably Talking to the Other Side: A History of Modern Spiritualism and Mediumship – A Study of the Religion, Science, Philosophy, and Mediums that Encompass this American-Made Religion (iUniverse, 2005) and Words of Inspiration: A Self-Divination and Healing Method for Awakening Your Spiritual-Intuitive Side Using Playing Cards (iUniverse, 2003).
