Students Share

“I work professionally in the entertainment industry as a composer and writer, and I have to say that over the course of this class year, seeing my growth and my creativity has been really exciting to me! I really love the the idea at USM that I can reframe all of my life’s experiences as opportunities in service to my Soul’s growth and Awakening. I’ve witnessed some of my heartfelt dreams really manifesting in ways that have completely transcended my expectations. My joy at experiencing this is matched only by my deep gratitude to USM for the essential part it now plays in my life.”
