WELCOME to the
CENTER FOR SPIRITUAL LIVING UNIVERSITY(CSLU)

CSLU Logo

Join us for upcoming classes and workshops!

Spiritual Study is one of the five pillars of a balanced Spiritual Practice. It is way of living that helps you “stay in the conversation” in a community of like-minded people, understand our philosophy more fully and experience a shift in your perspective.  We provide an array of rich opportunities to “change your thinking and change your life!”

We call our educational program the “Center for Spiritual Living University.” Generally, there are two types of classes: the “Certificated Classes” (courses certificated by “Home Office” to meet both pre-practitioner requirements and serious student needs) and “Enrichment”  (classes/workshops designed to encourage skill transfer from the course to everyday life). Both types of spiritual study are offered so that you may find exactly what you need to enrich your unique journey!

 I am transformed with every class.  …  ~Jim P.

The Creative Process is introduced at the beginning of the class and then flows through each week, so that the students have the opportunity to see and use the Creative Process at work in each spiritual principle.
Join Rev. Susan on a journey of self-discovery and revelation within an experiential format of lecture, discussion, sharing and process. Learn the spiritual principles and practices that embody our teachings, while embarking on an adventure with other like-minded individuals. This is the entry level class for Science of Mind students, but repeat students are encouraged!

WORKSHOPS

CONSOLATIONS BY DAVID WHYTE – BOOK OF THE MONTH STUDY GROUP

With Ron Wade
Mondays
August 5 – 26
6:30 - 8 pm

Registration: $50
Consolations is a collection of 52 essays about everyday words. Each week, we will read and discuss one randomly selected essay from the 52 essays in Consolations. We will seek to “Uncover the Solace, Nourishment and Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words.” Each participant is encouraged to find an essay that resonates with them and bring it to the gathering. If time permits, we will read and discuss this word, too. Each week is self-contained, so if you miss a week, the only thing you might miss is a discussion of your favorite word.

DISCOVER YOUR WHY

With Connie Brock & Shirley Henry
Saturday
September 14
9:30 am -12:30 pm

Registration: $75

In these turbulent times, we must get clear about why we do what we do. My clients often struggle with who and what they stand for, while trying to fit into a job that may not honor their values and innate skills. When my clients are clear about the value they bring, they can more easily decide to keep (or tweak) their current job, or look for a new one. Perhaps you face the same dilemma? I would argue that the clearer you are about who you are and the value you bring, the more able you will be to create your future from a firm foundation.
