Facilitate soulful self-discovery and spiritual awareness for your clients in your holistic healing or coaching practice.

Are your clients asking you for a deeper soulful experience?

Imagine being the one they turn to when seeking their inner wisdom, their long-lost soul energy, and their spirit guides.

This 100-hour certification course is a stand-alone professional training program.

By completing the coursework, you’ll be qualified to assist your client to:

  • Enjoy a delightful, focused, trance state and emerge again.
  • Discover an energetic gift to bring them traits and energy that is perfect for the session.
  • Create a line of communication with their spirit guide.
  • Receive wisdom from their subconscious mind, their deeper inner knowing.
  • Explore and manage close encounters with alien beings.
  • Understand and handle negative spiritual influences.
  • Regain and integrate soul pieces and energy that have been lost, given away, or taken from them.
  • Become their own psychic in seeing their future and the outcomes of their planned decisions.
  • Improve intuition and sight.

Who is this course for?

Healers and coaches who want to offer deeper transformation for clients in heart, mind, and spirit. 

Soulful practitioners willing to walk in the fire and hold the space for clients who long for deeper insights, peak experiences, exploration of their inner landscape and connections with unseen beings.

Heart-centered individuals in practice or career transition who want to step up to their true desire to make a difference in people’s lives, and in the world.

Who is this course not for?

• You know this is not your calling.

• Your heart’s not in the right place to nurture or listen to others.

• Being your own boss, responsible for your financial stability, time, and freedom don’t speak to you.

• You won’t pass a background check in locations where that may be required by your government.

By completing the coursework of Spiritual Exploration, you’ll be prepared to do deep client-centered soul work that has roots in:

• Psychology (Gestalt, Perls, Jung, and others),

 Neuro-linguistic Programming (Erickson, Bandler, Grindler, and others)

• Traditional practices (Celtic and Native American Shamanism)

• New physics (planes, dimensions)

• Transpersonal mysticism (energy field, spirit guides, intuition, symbolism, entities, extra-terrestrials).

Imagine the groundbreaking work you can do when you're trained in these techniques.

Support your clients' soul work with techniques from the mystics:

Spirit Guides

A spirit guide is a being who is qualified to assess and support your spiritual growth. They help you to shape your soul, stay oriented toward your purpose, and arrange challenges to help you grow and evolve.

Learn to guide your client in deepening their spirit guide relationship, discovering who they are, where they came from, and how to communicate with them.

Sacred Journey

A sacred journey is an opportunity to receive profound and meaningful messages from your higher self and your guides through a metaphorical story.

Learn to guide your clients through this valuable experience to gain important messages, become aware of their future, and find solutions to the challenges they may face.

Soul Retrieval

There are times in life, or in past lives, when we have given away our power, lost fragments of our energy field, or diminished the light of our soul.

Become skilled in helping your clients identify, locate and retrieve these lost soul fragments, and then to reintegrate them to return to a whole state of being.

Spirits & Entities

There are spirits or entities around us all the time. Some are here for our benefit, some don't even know we're here. And others have a more malicious intent.

Learn the details about different classes of beings. Become better able to discern and handle them if they are influencing your client, and learn


While there is great controversy regarding whether ET's exist, the fact is there are clients who may come to you with missing time and odd experiences, or who recall extraordinary events of encounters and abduction.

Learn how to respond and manage these types of memories and potential trauma responses.

Spiritual Protection

Having effective protection strategies is important whether your client is under psychic attack, negative spiritual influence, or is exuding negative energy as they work through their issues.

A deeper understanding and specific strategies will support your protection efforts in these situations.

Includes Live Support Calls on Zoom

Many online students find it hard to stay on track, need practice partners, or have questions. In some cases, they've hired me for coaching to support their learning process and keep them accountable.

So I've put together a way for online students to have the benefits of a live class, but with social distancing and no travel expenses. And at far less cost than private coaching.

These seven 3-hour calls take place weekly, and are hosted by me, personally. I'll provide additional instruction, demonstrations, and Q & A sessions. You're never handed off to other instructors or staff. I'm with you all the way through the course and beyond!

Students report that a critical point in their understanding and success with techniques was due to attending the calls and being witness to the methods in action, with debriefing sessions to clarify decision points, transitions between techniques, client responses, and more.

Live Zoom Calls are scheduled throughout the year. 

Please check with Mary Lee for the dates and times of the next Live Zoom Calls.

Why This Training Is Unique

Traditionally, techniques like Sacred Journeys and Soul Retrieval are done in an environment that includes smudging (the burning of sage to cleanse spaces), drumming, chanting, or rattles. While these are conducive to going into a trance state, many clients find these methods to be uncomfortable or distracting, especially when used in a smaller private office. 

Wanting to bring this important work to my hypnotherapy clients, I found a way to adapt the traditional techniques, providing these services through client-centered hypnotherapy. In this way, the practitioner holds the space, guides the client into a trance state, and then offers structured and intuitive questions to the client.

Respect is given to the wisdom held within the client's higher consciousness, as it ultimately shows the way to resolution of the presenting issue.

By adding these shamanic-style techniques to your offerings, you'll be equipped to facilitate sessions that will support your client's spiritual awareness and development.

Enjoy your journey of learning and growth. You are about to enter the fascinating world of Spiritual Exploration!

This class exceeded all of my expectations.

As a student of Mary Lee’s, I knew that she would deliver a content-rich program that would be useful in my coaching work with clients.

What I came away with was a deep level of understanding of spiritual and metaphysical principles, and powerful techniques that gave me direct access to my own spirit guides.

I received greater clarity through one session of experiencing this work than I have been able to do on my own over the last 20 years of spiritual journeying.

This program has definitely accelerated my own personal evolution and has greatly enhanced my ability to be a masterful coach for my clients.

Thank you so much, Mary Lee, for sharing your expertise and wisdom through the work that you do.

~ Shelley Van SkyHawk, Energy Medicine, Nutritional Therapy, Life Coach

Mary Lee's training offers profound tools for the serious professional as well as for those seeking personal discovery. 

I feel deeply empowered by the skills I gained, and am confident that my greater understanding of the concepts and techniques gained through this class adds a level of accomplishment to the work with my clients that is irreplaceable.

~Jane Todd, Massage Therapist

Your trainings are part of the roots of my work.

Your courses gave me the structure to work with people’s inner world.

The experience supported my path to developing the work that I do now.
