MasterPeace Meditation Teacher’s Edition
Beginner’s Volume 1: Classes I, II, III, & IV
Jackie Haverty, CCH, MSW
This Teacher’s Edition of the MasterPeace Beginners Meditation Course is a westernized version based partly on the teachings of Dr. Ernest Holmes, Founder of Centers for Spiritual Living. January 21, 1887 – April 7, 1960.
This course is also partly based on past meditation teachings of Rev. Mona McNeil, Independent Minister with the Affiliated New Thought Network, Carlsbad, California.
About This Course
This is truly a unique, one of a kind course with four weekly classes developed specifically for those who wish to teach meditation tools to clients and students. It provides the teachers with an excellent opportunity for a passionate, inspirational career. As well, it provides an excellent pathway towards inner awareness and enlightenment for both the teacher and the student.
All classes are creatively designed and appropriately timed to present a combination of lectures, techniques, tools and exercises that build on themselves through each of the four classes. There are prompts written in red throughout each class for clarity. These provide you with information on how to work with the material presented or what to do as the teacher.
You may personalize each class to conform to your own personal style and expertise. You are welcome to change, re-create, and add to any of the classes according to the needs of your students, your own style, or add length to the classes.
There is extra material to use for your classes according to your choices, along with a reference list of books, videos, and websites for further information and support. There are also handouts for each class, homework assignments, and an evaluation form for your students.

As a non-traditional student and single parent, I graduated from Black Hills State University in Spearfish, SD with a BSc.in Sociology and Psychology. Later, I attended South Dakota State University towards a Master’s in Guidance and Counselling. Later, I received a Master’s in Clinical Hypnotherapy and became a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. Training was also received in Transpersonal Hypnotherapy and Regression/Past-Life Therapy from the Association for Past Life Research and Therapies (APRT). Which is now called (IARRT) International Association for Regression Research & Therapies Inc. Numerous alternative/complimentary healing modalities were also obtained which provided over 35 years of both training and experience.
My background has included Social Work in both Child Protection and Adoptions in British Columbia, Canada. I was part of a BC Provincial focus group to create a progressive new Adoption Act which came into effect on November 4, 1996, and also sat on the Board of Directors for the Adoption Council of BC.
And, during my earlier working years, I was employed in various services as a Counselor for women, children and families experiencing crises in both the US and Canada. I am now retired and living in Vernon, BC – for now!
