Joan studied ‘The Melchizedek Method’ with Alton Kamadon. Maureen Crosby and Joan Ruggiero sponsored Alton Kamadon to come to Boston in 2002. They began teaching Melchizedek Method Classes in 2001 to prepare students to meet Alton Kamadon to receive the Melchizedek IV teachings. Understanding the importance of the Melchizedek teachings Joan resumed teaching ‘The Melchizedek Method’ in Oct. 2010. She has taught over 200 Workshops in Levels I through V of the Melchizedek Method and trained 26 students as teachers of ‘The Melchizedek Method.’ There are 12 of these teachers giving Melchizedek Workshops at this time.
