Community, Life Skills & Personal Growth All in One Place
An E-Learning Community that enhances personal growth by teaching life skills required to live a stress free & happy life... every day!
How are We Going to Change the World?
We're not educated in High School or College to live life stress free. We're not taught that holding grudges or un-forgiveness hurts us more than the other person. We're not taught that society molds our lives or that the media teaches us that there isn't anything wrong with eating fast food. We only know what we were taught by our parents and society to be correct...which is what we now teach to our own children. Generation after generation, different patterns, habits & ways of thinking are passed down, some good and some not so good.
Why was Council of Light Created?
In October of 2002, I (Lisa) was diagnosed with an incurable, debilitating & painful disease called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. Within two years I lost my ability to walk. I was then diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I went through 9 doctors before I found one that could help me.
I'll never forget the day the doctor told me that I would spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair and my disease would just progress. I was devastated.. I went home and cried for hours and hours. The doctors had me on so much medication.. 18 of them 3 times per day to be exact.. one being morphine.
I finally said, "Enough is Enough!" Raising two young children alone at the time and being on disability wasn't working for me. I struggled with finding a job and even going back to school because I never knew how I was going to feel. I did not want to live my life this way.
So I started researching natural wellness. Another year went by and I gained my ability to walk again! Now don't get me wrong, not everyone has the choice to "physically" get out of that wheel chair. But we DO have the choice on getting our mind out of it. So I did both! I started reading and meditating, and with a physicians assistance, I was able to remove 90% of the medication I was taking... INCLUDING MORPHINE!
Then I hit the books and went back to school and 2 years later.. I earned 7 certifications ONLINE in the natural health field. As I moved forward, I still felt like I was missing something so I went back to school again online and earned a degree in Psychology, a Diploma in Holistic Health and 2 more certifications! If these schools were not online, I don't know if I could have accomplished what I did.
Now... I want to share with the world, how I helped myself. I want to teach others, step by step, how to change their lives for the better. I want everyone to know that even though they may feel like they are in their darkest moments.. and they feel as if they're lives could not get any worse... There is a Light that shines in those dark moments.
How do I know? Because I am "Living Proof" that people can change their lives and create their dreams. I'm doing it right now!
Do I still have some bad days? Yes, I do.. but there are more good than bad and I focus on the good.
Allow me to tell you a bit about what how I am going to change peoples lives for the better!

Why Online Learning?
First, I want to reach out to people internationally worldwide; With live events, attendance is at a low due to travel costs so E-learning is on the rise.
Secondly, future growth for the next 5 years shows that internet based programs, courses, webinars, podcasts are going to be the futuristic way for people to learn, gain their education and manage their life in a positive way.
Thirdly, I want to build a diverse community with people from all over the world. This helps people to co-exist peacefully and happily while seeing that regardless of our race, color or religion, we are all the same.
Fourth, Council of Light offers a program called "Lifeshare Coach Certificate & Business Training Program" that offers those who complete the full course an opportunity to create a Lifeshare Program in their area or online. This creates jobs worldwide and builds businesses while helping the economy grow.

Risks and challenges
Being that it iI am the only one making the videos and writing the curriculum, the worst thing that could happen is I do not get ALL of the courses up by our launch date of October 2016.
We are giving our web creator plenty of time to build our community as well so I do not foresee any delays in that. But if it did, it would not interfere with our courses.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
