Message from Dr. Pat Campbell, Calgary CSL


Hi all. I was asked to write something uplifting this week, in light of the world’s events. Usually writing uplifting pieces comes pretty easily to me. However, I found it particularly challenging, because, like many of you, I was caught up in the world of effect at this time. So I went to my go-to book by Ernest Holmes, the founder of our teaching. I love all of his writings, but “This Thing Called You” is my fave. I rifled through it, looking for something to bring me peace and inspiration. The following did it for me. I hope it […]

Message on Racism from Dr. Edward Viljeon, Spiritual Leader of Centers for Spiritual Living


Racism in the United States. Centers for Spiritual Living calls for it to end! We are grieving lives that ought not to have been lost.

Too many generations have suffered and it has never been, and is not now, acceptable. We denounce racism in all its forms: the starkness of unapologetic, intentional racism; the racism of silence in the face of […]

Join me on Sunday as we take a look at why habits are hard to break, and how we can make it easier — using spiritual Principles.
