A Centers for Spiritual Living Licensed Spiritual Practitioner is a person of high spiritual consciousness and deep understanding of the spiritual nature of Life; a deep and personal relationship with the Divine is prominent. The Licensed Spiritual Practitioner is trained in the study of the Science of Mind, and in the art, science and skill of Spiritual Mind Treatment, also known as Affirmative Prayer. Licensed Spiritual Practitioners are dedicated to the cause of helping others and sacred service, licensed to practice professionally, and bound by a high code of ethics while providing a safe and confidential space for clients.
To become a CSL Licensed Spiritual Practitioner a person must complete a rigorous multi-year required course of study, pass a comprehensive background check and written exam, and be approved by an oral panel consisting of ministers and practitioners. Their licenses are renewed every other year after approval of required continuing education credits and service hours within a CSL-Affiliated Community.
Licensed Spiritual Practitioners are a healing center! When someone needs support or a shoulder to lean on, a Professional Practitioner is there – trained, compassionate, and most important, clear about everyone’s innate divinity. A Licensed Spiritual Practitioner has a strong conviction in the power of Spiritual Mind Treatment and has experienced results with the use of it. Licensed Spiritual Practitioners are trained in experiencing the oneness of Life and expanding in unity consciousness. Practitioners support clients with Spiritual Mind Treatment in eliminating conditions that are not working for the greater good and exploring spiritual principles and the use of spiritual laws to create the life they desire.

How We Pray
Affirmative Prayer is a prayer that declares a spiritual Truth. It is a recognition of Spirit’s Omniscience, Omnipotence, and Omnipresence, and a realization of humanity’s unity with Spirit. Affirmative Prayer is a powerful method for setting the Creative Process into motion. It is a direct, focused, and organized method using five steps to get to your desired outcome:
1. Recognition (God Is All There Is)
2. Unification (I Am One with God)
3. Realization (Speaking Your Desired Good)
4. Thanksgiving (Grateful Acceptance) and
5. Release (Let Go, Let God)
Religious Science Practitioners do not charge for traditional prayer, but there is a financial exchange between our clients and the Practitioner. They are professionally trained and licensed in the techniques behind Science of Mind Principles over many years and have financially invested in their spiritual training and techniques. We give our clients a new way to look at the situations they have come to us for help with and then affirm the path with a specific Affirmative Prayer along with homework. Our clients are not passive observers of their healing, but very active participants in choosing a new way of thinking and showing up in their lives.
