Spiritual education: Merina studied spirituality and dream interpretation for many years under a teacher who was tutored by Padre Pio, Italy. She also took extensive courses with Dr. Wm. Bezman at Pathways to Health in New York, studied with Rev. James McShane in Lindsay, ON, as well as took courses at Delphi Spiritual University in Georgia, with certification in Spiritual Hypnotherapy and courses in intuitive counselling.
Currently putting together material to submit to the Ontario Provincial government as well as the local school boards asking that spirituality and a more holistic approach be now included in the school curriculum.
1. Frightening children is the last allowable violence against children. Do you agree?
2. Should we ask Toronto District School Board to discourage frightening small children in our schools?
3. Should we agree that our Provincial government allow spirituality in schools? (As it is, Halloween is the only spirituality encouraged, negative spirituality.)
