A Message from Rev. Debby & Rev. Matti
Welcome! Are you ready to change your life? Are you ready for more happiness, more joy and more love? Are you looking for a non-judgmental positive group of individuals that come together in fellowship and community? Then my friends, you have come to the right place.
The Center for Spiritual Living Carlsbad provides the spiritual tools, support and practices to transform our lives and make the world a better place. We believe that as we change our thinking, we can change our lives.
Honoring all paths to God, we know that as we connect at a deeper level with Spirit, we are able to connect at a deeper level with others. That is just the beginning to greater happiness, expanded joy and increased love.
Get ready to embrace life at a new level as we wake up to our Divinity. Join us we support, guide and celebrate together this thing called life.
AUGUST THEME: A Life That Works - Enjoying Spirit
One of the tenants of this teaching is that God is everywhere; that it is all God all the time. Our founder Ernest Holmes referred to God as "The Thing Itself". This month we continue to look for Spirit in common and not so common places. You see, when we are using our spiritual vision, then we can see not only inspiration but also blessings in our everyday activities. Join us as we open to knowing that all is well and all will be well because Divine Inspiration has no limits.
God Is. I AM. Wherever I go I see Spirit in action and find a blessing to count. I am so very blessed and life is so very good.

THE WAY OF MASTERY with Rev. Catherine Bonin
Friday Afternoons August 5, 12, 19 & 26 from 3:00-5:00pm
390 Oak Ave. #H, Carlsbad
The Way of Mastery is a profound spiritual teaching with practices that ground the student in the lessons the master teacher Jesus brought to us some 2000 years ago. It is based on the idea that we are all creations of Love and are given free will to create our own personal experiences, even experiences of fear and unreality. It puts responsibility for awakening where it belongs, on each one of us and our own power to make new choices. When the choice of what to think is totally aligned with Love then reality is remembered, and our experience of life is changed.
This program is said to have been written by the same author as the Course in Miracles and teaches the same basic concepts but in a slightly different way. It is designed to provide all the tools necessary to guide our way back to our deepest self, to the awareness of the greater truth which dwells within each one of us. It is designed to end suffering, return us to love and freedom and transform our lives. This is an interactive study group, not a formal class and involves reading, audio lessons and conversation about the practical application of the concepts presented in the material.
COST: Buy the book and then it's a Love Offering

There is so much going on in the world, so much to process that we would like to spend time in community discussing what is on your mind. We know that all change starts with consciousness and is then followed with action.
