Ocean Speake Online Seashell Reading Classes

Register at your convenience, and study at your own pace. Michelle Hanson has developed an independent on-line student seashell divination and certification program. The course is divided into 5 modules and Ocean Oracle and Ocean Wisdom will serve as your workbooks. For every lesson, you will receive a written transcript accompanied by a powerpoint presentation. A high speed Internet connection is recommended as those with dial-up computers will find the service too slow to keep pace with the class.

To enhance this material, all students will receive:

  • Hundreds of photos of the animals who create the shells. Each lesson has a companion photo album.
  • Internet websites and videos to increase your comprehension
  • Homework exercises to monitor your progress
  • Practice reading sessions supervised by Michelle
  • Personal guidance with Michelle in working with the Ocean Oracle system

Requirements for graduation from Ocean Speake Level I: Reading all the transcripts and viewing all powerpoint presentations. Completing all homework assignments.

“Shell, a teacher is one who shares information and knowledge with a student. A mentor is one who shares a common passion and skill with an apprentice while they learn and develop.  A visionary shares with the world something yet to come into our vision. You dear one, seamlessly do all these while giving each of us time to discover and re-member who we truly are- embraced in the sacred mystery of this hue-man beingness!”   Promise
