This Certificate of Completion entitles you to be ordained by The Rev. Lynn Andrews and eligible to become a minister of sacred healing arts through an affiliation with the International Assembly of Sacred Healers and Earth Stewards subject to the regulations of your state or country of residence.

All degrees awarded through this program require a Certificate of Completion from the Lynn Andrews Center for Sacred Arts and Training.

you during the course of your first year. All recipients of either Certificate are eligible to become members of Kindred Spirits, the Lynn Andrews graduate program. Earth Stewards are also eligible to continue their work towards a Certificate of Completion.
