My Journey.

Jane Coulthard.


I live in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside, with my husband, our dog Lily, and Rosie the cat, and I have the privilege and delight of looking after my young nephew some time every week.

To my great joy, I was ordained as an Interfaith Minister & Spiritual Counsellor in 2003 after two years training with the Interfaith Seminary in London. This was the culmination of a search which began in my early teens, when I began to wonder, "What is life about?" and "Why are we here?"

My spiritual searching led me to explore many different ways, I was christened into the Anglican Church, but most of my family were not particularly religious and we did not attend church regularly. My close friend was Jewish and I found her religion fascinating.

Working as Cabin Crew on long haul flights I came into contact with all faiths and cultures and visited places where I was intrigued by the spirituality of the people. I was greatly impressed by the peace and joy of Buddhist monks, the wisdom of Native American and Taoist teachings. I found the answers to some of my questions in the Kabbalah of Judaism, and was profoundly moved by the tangible feeling of spirit in India. The gifts of the Mystic Poets and stories from Sages will continue to sustain me with their soul food.

When I put away my wings in 1992, I trained in Counselling, Reflexology, and Aromatherapy, learnt guided meditation and studied healing and metaphysics. I found out about the Wicca & Druid way and the Celtic/Pagan celebration of Nature. I felt enriched and inspired by all I had learnt and deeply grateful to the many wonderful teachers that I was blessed with. But I still didn't know where I belonged! Until, I attended an Interfaith Worship Service, and then, I knew I had found my home.

Since 1996 I have been a student of A Course in Miracles, which states that "a universal theology is impossible, but a universal experience is not only possible but necessary". This self study spiritual psychology course, whose teachings focus on a profound level of forgiveness and it's practical application, is deeply nourishing and supportive of my aspiration to communicate fully with all, without any barriers. I am committed to ever deepening my spiritual practice, grounding myself in an authentic and evolving spiritual life, from where I may serve ever more fully.




 To contact the seminary,

Interfaith Ministers enter training with a wide range of life experience, having spent considerable time in personal reflection. We are actively committed to, our own spiritual awakening process, to serving all with an open mind and a loving heart and to affirming the Unity of Spirit of all beings.

The Interfaith Seminary is an initial two-year process of education, training and personal development. We study the world's major faiths and spiritual traditions and receive practical training in spiritual counselling, conducting celebrations and the heart of service.

The Interfaith Seminary provides on-going training, supervision, and support for graduates and as practising members we agree to abide by its' code of ethics.

The Interfaith Seminary, which is now a registered charity, was founded by Rev. Miranda Macpherson in 1996, as a sister program to the seminary in New York, where Miranda was trained and ordained. This organization was founded in 1981 by Rabbi Joseph Gelberman, with the support of, religious leaders such as Swami Satchidananda, Methodist minister Rev. John Mundy, and others wishing to explore the areas between and beyond the boundaries of their own faith.
