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 best gift we can bring to the world is to be our best self. When we are fully alive, aligned with our purpose, and shining our light in the world, we inspire and touch others - we are spirit in action. In this workshop, you will connect with your purpose, and learn how to express more of that in your life, including how to overcome what stops most people from living this way. “Don’t ask what the world needs, ask what makes you come alive. Because what the world needs is more people who have come alive” — Howard Thurman
