Welcome to a new and exciting future at the ISD. 

If this is your first time visiting us, you are in for some special surprises as you are encouraged to partake of the many tools that can assist you on your life's path. 

To live in health, happiness and prosperity is everyone's birthright, whether we choose to follow a certain path is our individual choice. No dogma or belief system is imposed upon anyone. 

We are all encouraged to find our own path, with the love and support of like-minded people who approach the search for knowledge and understanding with an open and loving mind, always ready to adapt to change.

We hope you will join us and begin to see the world as beautiful as it really is, and see that beauty in your fellow man regardless of his/her choices...

Blessings,  Rev. Kathy Kerston, Director

The Fool's Journey through the Major Arcana of the Tarot is a metaphor for the story of one's own journey through life. Each card depicts an experience already, or to be, realized. Come and join the Fool (also called the Innocent) as we walk through his/her life's adventures. This class is based on the Rider Waite deck, and having your own set will be helpful.

Shamanic Drum Circle
with Rev John Drinkard

The drum is the heartbeat of Mother Earth. Come join us as we ride our drums into the Spirit World in search of healing, knowledge and power. To the Shaman’s eyes, the world around us is alive with Spirit. Come learn to see with those eyes, to explore hidden worlds and to access the timeless wisdom known to our ancestors. Bring a blanket, blindfold, and notebook for the journey. If you have a drum or rattle, bring it along. They are not required.

Come and celebrate the new Divine Child within.
