The motivation for InspireSight programs comes from a love of sharing the quiet and inspiration of nature and the light the Bible sheds on their substance. Jesus used nature metaphors for spiritual teaching, as have other spiritual teachers throughout history. InspireSight programs facilitate the exploration of these “hieroglyphs of Deity” and the lessons they illustrate. The focus on nature metaphors in the Bible, show how they relate to various states of thought and experience in the spiritually-transforming individual.
The programs also incorporate current scientific discoveries about plant cammunication, their interrelatedness, and what truths they can teach us. We also feature environmental advancements and solutions, often found through prayer and listening for inspiration. The focus is on hope, working together, love, and cherishing all God's creation. Inspiresight programs are not politically oriented.

What InspireSight attendees
have said :
The original InspireSight Biblical Nature Metaphor programs for the Christian Science community began in 2003 with backcountry programs in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. These evolved into Seminar programs in and outdoors. Indoor programs include beautiful PowerPoint slide programs and inspirational music which explore the Biblical themes of Plant-Seed-Root-Tree metaphors; Wind-Atmosphere- Holy Spirit metaphors; Water-River-Sea metaphors; Rock-Cave-Foundation metaphors; as illustrated throughout the Bible and in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Field programs help participants see these various themes illustrated in nature in a practical way.
