Today, many people find themselves searching for a way to blend an intelligent, relevant spiritual system with their humanist values or secular worldview. Many search for a way to bring greater meaning to their home life and stronger unity to their marriage and/or family.
In the absence of such a spirituality, too many people go through their lives searching for meaning, practicing the same self-defeatist behaviors and getting stuck in the same ruts: life-draining negativity, chronic unhappiness and relationship breakdown.
“Add a Spark” seminars are designed to help both women and men break the cycle of negativity and bad habits that are preventing them from living life to the fullest. They promote “sparks” of spiritual meaning and positive change that can transform all areas of an individual’s personal and home life.
“Add a Spark” seminars teach vital elements of the New Vesta spiritual worldview: these include the ancient history, rituals and doctrine of the Vesta tradition and how these fit into contemporary practice. They combine fascinating facts with essential insight and informed practical advice about one of the world’s fastest-growing and most relevant belief systems.
These seminars show both men and women how to achieve personal happiness and spiritual well-being, as well as how to enjoy loving, successful long-term interpersonal relationships. By reigniting the “old ways” of Vesta, a modern life – and home – can be illuminated.
I was so stuck in bad habits before your seminar. I never even realized how much I was driving away the people I cared about with my negativity and self-imposed depression. Thank you, Debra. Those two hours have made all the difference in my marriage and family life. I don’t know who thanks you more, me or my husband or my kids!
People often say, “Where has this been all my life?” and that’s how I feel about Vesta. She has shone a light on truths and ideas that I always knew deep down in my heart, but couldn’t quite see clearly. I am in love with Vesta’s purpose and rituals in my life. I practice them with pride and without feeling like I have to switch-off my brain!
I have always felt an affinity for ancient ritual and the richness of ancient faiths. The Vesta faith just seemed so completely natural to me. It is exactly what I have been searching for and it has added layers of meaning and wonder to my life. The history was amazing and I now understand the comfort that Vesta gives. I am honored and excited to be part of her rediscovery.
I feel like I walked into the seminar as one person and walked out as another. You gave me a real wake-up call about what my attitude and habits were costing me. Even better, you didn’t just waste time by talking, you gave me real ideas that helped me change my life in some important ways.
For the first time in my life, I feel that I have the tools to be the role model that I want to be for my children. My husband and they used to leave the room when I entered. Now they seem to gravitate toward wherever I am! What a difference a few simple tools can make.
The simplicity is what got me. And how straightforward it all was. I feel like everyone should have to take this seminar before getting married. Your seminar literally improved my home life and relationship with my husband overnight. The light just went ON. We have been burning a Vestal candle at dinner time. The kids love to drizzle olive oil into it. It’s become a really fun and meaningful ritual in our day.
I have never in my life been able to change the habits I was stuck in whether it was overeating or always feeling like I was going to fail before I even started. I realized how much my current mistakes were stemming from a past that I just couldn’t seem to let go of. You helped me finally do that. I feel like I have that “clean slate” that we’re all looking for and that we talked about.
I felt at ease and able to look into the mirror at some of the behaviours you were talking about. Thank you so very, very much for not just pointing out what I was doing wrong but also giving advice about how to change. You have a very original way of approaching “change” but it worked for me when nothing else did including years of off and on individual counseling.
You have a great sense of humor and you are an authentic person. Thank you for sharing your own mistakes and how you overcame them. It made me realize I am not an awful person and there is nothing wrong with me. I just needed some ideas to help appreciate my life and marriage and find happiness with them. You gave fantastic strategies and tips that I use on a daily basis to keep me focused on the good things in my life.
