The Center for Spiritual Living, Redding
The Center for Spiritual Living in Redding, California provides spiritual tools to transform our personal lives and help make the world a better place.
The Center for Spiritual Living is a spiritual community and way of life that honors all paths to God and helps people to discover a personal relationship with God. When God is the focus of our spirituality, then other areas of our lives fall into place — we are happier, we can do more for others, be better stewards of the Earth and bring peace and harmony to the world.
We extend a warm welcome to all people in search of a spiritual community where they are embraced, respected, accepted for who they are, inspired and supported to grow to their highest potential.
No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.
Are you feeling alone, lost, empty or disconnected? Are you in crisis? Are you lacking fulfillment, looking for answers, healing and a spiritual home?
At the Center for Spiritual Living, you will belong to a like-minded community, a spiritual home, where you can discover peace of mind, healing, inspiration, and live with a personal relationship with God. We look forward to meeting you in person!Back to Top
Minister's Message for February 2014
GREAT OPENING FOR THE NEW YEAR
The New Year has sparked an exciting array of speakers, workshops and retreats that we know you will enjoy. We have had great feedback on Rev. David Robinson's talks and workshop, as well as Rev. Lynn Fritz's presentations, and Rev. Georgia Prescott's talks and her theatre group's presentation of "Authentic Voices."
February brings Dr. Kim Kaiser back to Redding for several monthly presentations on "Mysticism in World Religions." Rev. Sharon Dunn will also be speaking and presenting a workshop about "The Science in Science of Mind."
MYSTICISM AND INNER WORK
Mysticism and the inner work accomplished through a retreat are themes that will serve each one of us well this year. In the class using Carolyn Myss' book Entering the Castle, she says it takes courage to get to know your soul and once you do, the Divine Itself will come to call. Through contemplation, silence, soul work and journaling, we move beyond the practical and into a capacity to experience God. One obstacle is self knowledge. The mystical path is a journey toward illumination through self knowledge. Our reality is expanded and nothing ever looks the same. We feel free.
If you are new to our philosophy, we invite you to classes to expand your intuitive awareness. And, if you've been here awhile, we invite you to move from intuitive guidance to divine revelation! As we grow, we find we are more capable of being calm in chaos, kind amid anger, and able to stand in personal integrity in every situation. The qualities of soul power are: humility, dignity, integrity, honor, wisdom, justice, harmony and endurance. The results of doing spiritual practices, contemplation and journaling is a soul with stamina! In the end, we are all measured by the quality of attitude we bring to our life. Join us for this spiritual adventure!

Peace Practice for February 2014
"Simply find your own personal way to connect with the Divine everyday...." ~~ Rebbi Gabriel Cousens, M. D.
Peace is about communion with the One. When we experience feeling divided, it separates us from the joy of being. If we do not know the experience of God within ourselves, then we will struggle to see it in those around us. We will forget. The spiritual journey is about remembering the love of God in all moments of our lives. Imagine in your practice, the full immersion with the Divine...allow the abundance of love and joy to fill you up so that It pulses through every cell. When you sense living in this Wholeness, peace is and joy will bubble forth to create harmony in your world. Peace is....
Blessings Always, Rev. Sue MillerBornBack to Top
