Delphi University Healing Schools Overview

Delphi Vogel Crystal Healing ComplexAt Delphi, the structure and order of one's spiritual awakening and development is clearly understood. Our unique and exceptional staff of instructors has come together with one purpose: to help and guide others who are searching for greater love, greater light, and greater meaning in their lives. At Delphi our classes meet three times per day instead of once a week, which means a greater focus, concentration, and practical accomplishment. Our small class size and experiential training help to ensure that students have the opportunity to work closely with the faculty on a one-to-one basis, as they learn to open, develop, and reliably use their spiritual gifts and abilities.

Delphi University CampusAll courses of study at Delphi begin with In-Depth Channeling Training from the Arthur Ford School of Mediumship, the foundation course at Delphi. Developing one's channeling abilities is one of the key fundamentals to all forms of spiritual practice and expression. In our intensive 7-day In-Depth Channeling Course you will learn how to develop, refine, and enhance your psychic and spiritual abilities, and become a clear channel of love, light, and healing. After completion of In-Depth Channeling, students can elect to pursue the Metaphysician Studies offered by the Patricia Hayes School, the RoHun™ Therapy Studies offered by the RoHun™ Institute, or both. Many students begin their work at Delphi with Inner Sanctuary Training or with the Connecting with Spirit Personal Holistic Healing Program before taking In-Depth Channeling. Delphi is a spiritual haven and the perfect environment for those who are seeking to develop their channeling skills and healing abilities, gain a greater understanding of God and self, and who are committed to their own personal growth and healing.

A Spiritual Womb and Retreat

Delphi In the tradition of the ancient mystery schools, Delphi is a Center for Transformation, Renewal, and Higher Order Agendas. The term Delphi means "Spiritual Womb," the same as the center for wisdom and prophecy in ancient Greece. And just like our Greek counterpart, the contemporary Delphi is a place of high spiritual energy, a spiritual womb of the Divine where students refine and express their spiritual gifts and abilities, develop spiritual wisdom, capability, and insight, and have high mystical experiences. The contemporary Delphi is located on and surrounded by a beautiful whitewater river, high in the Blue Ridge Mountains where the three states of Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee come together on the map.
One hundred and eighty acres of heaven on earth, Delphi is a spiritual haven for anyone who is searching for the most innovative and effective methodologies in spiritual and intuitive development, transpersonal psychology, and metaphysical and holistic healing therapies.

Our unique credential giving Certification and Degree Programs and Quality Practical Training Programs make Delphi a resource capital for individuals seeking to heal themselves, to help others, and to begin their own private practice as a spiritual and intuitive counselor, a holistic healer and practitioner, a metaphysician, and/or a RoHun™ therapist.

Five Keys to Delphi

The Heart of Delphi is its charm. Delphi knows that beauty and a feeling of relaxed comfort is essential to the soul that is here to create greater light in our world. From the rose bud found beside each down comforted bed to the many outdoor decks that support us in our rightful place near the stars, Delphi enfolds each person that comes here in the warmth of loving light. The Truth of Delphi lies in the mystery of the Spirit. Delphi's charm is everyone's charm. Love never fails. "Delphi feels like my spiritual home that is far away and that I've longed for', and "I feel like I'm home", is a phrase expressed by many.

Delphi's Purpose
Intention is the seed and the blueprint of the ripened fruit. Delphi in all its beauty stands as a Beacon of Light, a Lighthouse that continually calls all of those that are here with a spiritual purpose. When they come, Delphi lovingly awakens their spiritual memory and gently guides them to their direction and abilities. Delphi's special gift is nourishing, strengthening, and empowering each individual, according to his or her spiritual abilities, with in depth skills that are able to touch the hearts and minds of the many.

The Nature of Delphi
From the sound of the flowing white water that encircles Delphi, to the rustling of the many leaves that form halos around our friends the trees: from the symphony of birds and crickets and the grace and beauty of the multi-colored butterflies, to the smallest ant that silently fulfills its purpose, there is an acceptance, admiration and a sense of awe for all things just as they are. The nature of Delphi has its own unique ability to heal and to inspire loving values and high priorities, and is respected and loved by all.

The Order of Delphi
At Delphi, the structure and order of ones spiritual awakening is clearly understood. Each class and program guides the initiate with gentle strength to the next step, the next awakening, the next ability to emerge. Each class honors every individual for being there, and recognizes that quality not quantity nourishes the brilliance of each spirit and the genius within each mind. Each class group, carefully chosen in number, moves each student with accelerated speed and intensity of purpose towards greater self awareness. The mystery of Self is revealed, as are all its loving abilities and skills to help ourselves and others. Every class is a totally unique adventure.

The Shepherd's Staff of Delphi
Each member of the teaching and managerial staff feels a spiritual bond with one another and have come together to bring their unique and special abilities to radiate a greater light into our world. The best in their field, they bring to Delphi the benefits of their many years of experience and practical application in helping others. All are diamonds continually polishing and expanding the many facets of their light, as they help others to do the same.

Delphi Concord

Delphi Delphi is a Greek word that means Spiritual Womb. From within the spiritual womb of all of us comes forth the expression of love and healing.

The triangle represents The One and the many aspects of The One. When we express our love and healing, we take our place at the Apex of the triangle, and join with all others are at it's base, serving to anchor the love and healing energy into the physical dimension.

The Circle represents all of us joined in an Eternal Circle of Light as Keepers of the Light on the physical dimension.

As the strength of our oneness and our triangle intensifies, our circle increases, strengthening the power of our triangle as our love and healing energies bond together as true expressions of The One!

The fabric of our symbol is called the Delphi Concord. Concord means an agreement of the heart, by which two or more harmonious sounds come together to create a concord. Our combined love and light express the Tone of Love and Healing on our physical dimension.
