Enjoying the Journey is the Destination

A Simple Guide To Realizing More Love and Compassion for Yourself and Others Through an Understanding of Three Universal Principles.

Live or streaming in Des Moines, Iowa August 2nd-4th, 2023

Realizing our essence as Love and Understanding makes “Enjoying the Journey” possible regardless of past, present or anticipated difficulties.


We have heard this before, but have we truly integrated the message that we don’t have to respond as the victims of life’s rough patches?

Just before the fall of 2023 begins and we gear up for the harvesting and greater intensity of the work world, we bring you a beautiful opportunity to hear and interact with two world-renowned experts in the field of living from the understanding of our true power and potential to create the best lives possible.

Dr. Pettit recognizes that humans are not just resilient, they are spirit-filled beings who can respond to themselves and others in peaceful and compassionate ways. He has been the catalyst for healing of those with multiple mental health hospitalizations, and traumatic life experiences. Always with his finger on the pulse of current psychological research, his findings in practice are being affirmed by current clinicians, that what is happening in our psyche impacts our physical health. Though, both Linda and Bill acknowledge that Life provides challenges of all colors and shapes, the information they provide assures us that EACH of us has the Spirit within to be able to gracefully surf Life’s tsunamis!

3 Days with William F. Pettit, Jr., M.D. – August 2, 3 & 4th

Join us for a peace-inspiring rare opportunity to hear from and interact with a psychiatrist who sees everyone as whole and mentally healthy, no matter what traumatic experiences or diagnoses they have accumulated. Dr. Bill Pettit, a physician, who recovered from twenty years of intermittent episodes of depression, has now for over 40 years, been facilitating the awakening and realization of innate mental well-being in others. This is a marvelous opportunity to benefit from Bill’s ever-deepening understanding of the connection between our spiritual (formless), our psychological (Thought-created), and our physiological (thought-informed) natures. This understanding is the missing piece to enjoying the journey as the destination, regardless of life’s inevitable challenges and uncertainties.

Joined by Linda M. Sandel Pettit, Ed.D. on August 4th

Program participants will also experience a heart-filled presentation on The Intuitive Way of Love by Dr. Linda Sandel Pettit. A former graduate college dean and counseling psychologist, writer, author and mentor Linda brings a wealth of heart-opening gifts that help us all see the deeper aspects of who we really are. We have the privilege of spending two rich hours with her, where, she will share her KNOWING that “You are pure love in motion. Know this. Be this. Share this.”


Program Overview

Dr. Bill Pettit will endeavor to facilitate participants’ realizations that:

  • The nature of the formless energy of creation is love and understanding and therefore benevolent.  
  • The system of being human consists of our spiritual (formless), psychological (Thought-created), and physical (thought-informed) natures.
  • Understanding the nature and attributes of any system allows one to utilize that system without harming oneself or anyone else and to utilize that system to its full potential. 
  • The understanding of the relationship between formless energy and the experience of being human is facilitated by the metaphor of the Universal Principles of Mind, Consciousness & Thought. 

Dr. Linda Sandel Pettit in her presentation “The Intuitive Way of Love” will endeavor to facilitate participants’ realizations that 

  • Intuition is a spiritual gift.
  • There is magic, mystery, and simple logic behind intuition.
  • We are pure love in motion.

“The divine passes from the formless to form, and as human beings, we are both spectators and participants in this spiritual theatre called life. 

The great mystics of the world who tried to explain such knowledge, had no choice but to speak in metaphors, knowing that their words were only a representation of the spiritual wisdom that lies within the consciousness of all human beings.” – Sydney Banks, The Missing Link page 6-7

Utilizing stories of healing, Dr. Pettit will show how an incremental insight-based understanding of the system of being human increases the possibility and breadth of mental well-being, physical health, stress resistance, and resilience. 

Dr. Pettit will show how this fresh understanding, when applied to current scientific research, often brings simplicity and clarity to apparent complexity and confusion.
