Spiritual Director Reverend Kathleen

Center for Spiritual Living Delaware (CSLD) is a vibrant spiritual community based on New Thought-Ancient Wisdom in the lineage of Ernest Holmes. What we teach is a synthesis of the greatest wisdom of all time, a compilation of universal principles common to all of the world’s sacred texts! It is a teaching grounded in spiritual principle and practice that has a proven track record of transforming lives, including mine!

I know who you are in Truth. You are meant to live a great life, to be a beneficial presence on the planet by sharing your gifts and talents with the world. I can help you orchestrate the deep transformation of consciousness that is necessary for the realization of your dreams and aspirations. I can teach you the tools of spiritual mastery which will keep you grounded in the awareness of your spiritual identity – union with the Infinite One – and will prepare you for major breakthroughs. Among these tools are meditation, affirmative prayer, and visioning. You are co-creator with Spirit – change your thinking and you can change your life!

Let yourself be enveloped in the warmth and loving kindness of the members of CSL Delaware. We are committed to seeing the best in you and in each other. A core of ministers, practitioners, and group leaders work with me to assist you in the realization of your dreams, creating at CSL Delaware a safe and nurturing environment that is a birthing field for the new you. You are whole, perfect, and complete exactly as you are, a spiritual being having a human experience. Start your new story today!

Enjoy life transforming spiritual teachings and spiritual fellowship:

- every Sunday during service

- in weekly classes

- in care groups

- at workshops, concerts, and other special events.  With practical application of the spiritual principles we teach along with a consistent spiritual practice, life truly does get better and better.

CSL Delaware members say “Yes!” to every moment of life, knowing that it unfolds always exactly as it should. They are passionate about raising consciousness – their own and that of the planet, one thought at a time. I invite you to join us.
