Jerry Woods Founder, Director, Owner
Jerry founded SMHAS in 2010 with the goal of bringing an organized consciousness education to the community for spiritual, metaphysical and quantum physics studies, both in the campus setting and also available worldwide via online video classes. Jerry was moved to finance and participate in this endeavor due to healing experiences experiended in mediumship sessions connecting with his father, grandmother and others who had passed. That spurred his interest to further his earlier research in metaphysics, quantum physics and the nature of existence. Underlying themes to all classes offered at SMHAS are that you are more powerful than you have ever believed, if you are willing to change and drop your limiting beliefs you can heal yourself, you determine your future reality, and that we are all connected to everyone and everything else in the universe.
Jerry is a certified Theta Healer, channel, Reiki Master, and hypnotherapist.
Jerry had a previous career as an entrepreneur, being CEO of two voice-to-text computer software and services companies he founded. He grew and merged the last one with a public company in 2006. He received a US Patent for a realtime voice-to-text computer hardware and software application. Previously he was President and Vice President of sofware design and marketing companies that brought new integrated circuit design software to market. He gained experience in education as President and Chairman of a private, post secondary college with over 1,000 students in the legal services area. Earlier, Jerry held positions at Xerox, Control Data, and United Telecommunications. He attended Tennessee Tech, RIT, USMC Computer Science School and served three years in the US Marine Corps.
In his retirement Jerry has provided the financial support and the website technical design and support for the school as a contribution to the community. His goal has been to make consciousness, spirituality, quantum physics and related classes and workshops available to all who seek this information. He strongly believes science is beginning to validate spirituality and higher consciousness, making it easier for even the most skeptical to open their minds and heal themselves. Some leading speakers who explain this clearly today, sometimes from a scientific perspective, are Dr. Bruce Lipton, Gregg Braden, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Tom Campbell, and Dr. Rupert Sheldrake.
