About ten years ago, if someone was looking at my life it would appear that I was happy, secure and successful. At first I would've agreed, but then as life offered me some great challenges I began to question what I was really feeling and it was anger, bitterness, jealousy and lost.
This began a process of self-discovery and making life altering changes in how I saw myself and the world I live in. During this process I discovered Centers for Spiritual Living (http://csl.org/). After attending my second service, I knew I found my new spiritual home. I began their education classes and quickly discovered the source of all my problems...me! The classes were instrumental in providing a pathway to comfortably discover and change. In 2014, after 4 years I became a listened CSL Practitioner. Because of the teachings of New Thought, Science of Mind and others I have completely changed from the man I was a decade ago. I am a better husband, father, counselor, coach, friend etc. and continue to grow every single day.
So now, my spiritual journey has brought me to a calling that has taken me 3 years to answer... the call to lead others to discovering their magnificence, as I did...the call to be a minister.
The program is an accredited Masters in Consciousness Studies degree with a Certificate in Ministerial Education. I plan on completing the program in 4 years and the total cost for classes, books, travel to Los Angeles, retreats are estimated at $30,000.
At this time I am seeking support for the first year's costs. I am already registered and paid for classes beginning in September and a retreat in Florida (also in Sept.) I have paid almost $2500 already.
Your support helps me, but also takes the burden off of my family (wife and two children). For this, we all thank and appreciate your generosity. Thank you for helping me soar to new heights! Namaste.
