Learn the Secret Teachings of
Ancient Wisdom

“I’ve always been a spiritual person but have lacked the power and confidence to perform healing and increase abundance in my life. The Foundation of Light’s Kate and John Payne School of Ancient wisdom has taught me powerful healing techniques that I never knew existed. I have learned how to dowse and connect with Devas and spiritual beings. The supportive community at the Foundation of Light has banished my sense of loneliness and replaced it with spiritual awakening and practice. Now I feel like I’m on the path and in the rhythm! Thank you, Foundation of Light, for helping to bring my vision to fruition.”

A Community of Healing and Magic

“I’ve been having health problems and feeling alone. Thanks to the supportive community at the Foundation of Light, I’ve been learning powerful healing techniques and meditating more. The workshops and ceremonies give me hope and make me feel like I’m back on my spiritual path. I have been particularly inspired by the Kate and John Payne School of Ancient Wisdom that has helped me manifest more happiness and healing in my life.”

“The thing for all men to do at this time is to maximize their efforts at intercommunication among men … Survival in this new age depends on intercommunication and group affinity. Face this with both courage and loving responsibility.”

-Kate H. Payne, November 29, 1985
