Spiritual Journey

Recreating Lives In Love!

Twenty-eight (28) years ago, Reverend Nafisa Sharriff, Meditation Master, Interfaith Minister and teacher of Spiritual Tools for Transformation encountered the teachings of the Brotherhood of Light, Ascended Masters from the 4th and 5th Dimensions who gifted humanity with a complete system of Spiritual Tools for Transformation, known as The Teachings. These channeled teachings unleashed a longing within her heart, causing her to embark upon an intense course of spiritual study, Self-discovery and total transformation.

Her journey lead her to the temples of ancient Kemet (Egypt), a six week intense course of study in a gurukula (school of the Guru) in an ashram in Ganeshpuri, India and the One Spirit Interfaith Seminary in New York City, where she was ordained as an Interfaith Minister.
