Instructor: Omar Soriano 
This course re-examines Jesus as the world’s most important teacher on the subject of managing one’s thoughts for successful living. The question is posed, and answered, as to whether the Law of Attraction, as made popular by books such as The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, was taught long before by Jesus. Omar Soriano is a Prison Chaplain who has spent ten years working with inmates for personal and spiritual transformation. It is in the crucible of the prison system that he developed an approach now known as “Thought Management.”

Do you love to read thought provoking books? Do you love to discuss important concepts and fascinating ideas? Become part of an exciting dialogue! Our first book will be The Third Jesus by Deepak Chopra, available at the ISD Bookstore.

We believe that all great religions and philosophies contain within them the spark of truth and wisdom that can inspire within us a more complete understanding of our place in the universe. Aided by this belief, we seek to provide a supportive environment through Sunday services, spiritual healing, fellowship and education.
