Welcome to the School of LifeWork. 

You have most likely ended up here in order to begin anew, either on a new path, in a new manner, or for a new reason.  We are privileged to offer you the opportunity to explore your life and work in ways that are spiritually-active and that will help you transform your most cherished dreams into a daily source of wonder and fulfillment. 

Our view is metaphysical, holistic and integrative, blending the “being” aspects of your life with the “doing” aspects of your work.  We believe that the greatest gift you can give yourself is your own intuitive “guidance of divinity,” in alignment with your spiritual/soul sense of you who you are really meant to be and what you are really meant to do.  The School of LifeWork is intended as a forum of exploration, and you are the substance of the journey. 


If you intuitively sense that reviewing, revising, or redirecting your personal purpose and professional achievements are the right exploration for you at this time, we invite you to start the process of transforming your life and work by contacting us at the email address below.

May your journey lead you to your own truth, meaning and purpose! 

Rev. Joseph Civitella, PhD

Founder & Executive Director


We are a metaphysical ministry focused on
 personal growth and professional development.
Our mission is to facilitate the very best
in life/work mentoring experiences!



The School of LifeWork is not like anything else you’ll find anywhere else.  We're different in many ways, and hopefully we're better than most in important ways.  Although our products and services may be generally categorized as self-help, because they address the “self” and they are intended to “help,” our invitation is for you to engage in a co-evolved growth process with us – an interactive exchange focused on your personal growth and professional development.


As stated in one of our advertisements: “Go to school on yourself.  You are the student – Your life and work are the subject matter – Our virtual courses are your facilitator.”


Although we charge pre-established fees for our proprietary products and services, our modus operandi is to give back to the community we create.  Therefore all net proceeds of the operations of the School of LifeWork are reinvested in the form of scholarships and bursaries for special projects.  Think of us as a lifework incubator!


Indeed, we are geared towards helping everyone who asks us for help, because we know that different people have different abilities to pay for the things they really need.  But everyone’s life calling and lifework is of equal importance in our eyes.  So don’t let our set fees turn you away.  Talk to us.  We’ll reply to every query, whether it is for a deferred-payment plan to help you with cash flow, a scholarship or bursary to help you get started, or one-on-one coaching to give the School of LifeWork a “test run.”


We have total trust and complete faith that our honor system will bring out the full measure of what you’re willing to invest in yourself.  Remember, the products and services we offer might be ours to begin with, but your growth and development are yours to seize and drive forward in whatever manner is most appropriate to you.


What is your happiness in life and fulfillment with work worth to you?  We look forward to hearing from you soon!

“To achieve everything we are meant to achieve, we must become all of who we are meant to become.  It is by learning to work on purpose that we will be wholly engaged in the right work for the right reasons.  It is by re-storying our life and work that we will be fully and completely present in a gathering of sacred consciousness.”
