Welcome to the Center for Spiritual Living, Santa Rosa, Youth and Family Ministry
We are a safe, joyous, all inclusive, loving, and happy space. Our mission is to guide and support our youth on this incredible journey of divine discovery and personal creativity.
By using simple principles and practices in New Thought, Ancient Wisdom, Science of Mind & Spirit, we facilitate an understanding of the creative process, their roles in this process, and a realization that helps define their purpose, hopes, dreams and their ultimate freedom. They’ll remember that they are whole, perfect and complete, just as they are.
About the Youth and Family Ministry
Youth Programming happens every Sunday between 10:45 a.m.—11:45 a.m. Sign in required for your child.
In each of our rooms we strive to incorporate spiritual practices in an age appropriate manner. We may do candle lighting, prayer, meditation, yoga, and reading of stories aligned with the Center’s monthly theme.

We ask that you fill out this form before you leave your precious loved one with us. We have copies available at the Center as well if needed.
We have a lovely team of trained volunteers to work in our youth programs. With a collective 100 years of experience, 100 kids and grandkids, 100 years of experience with Centers for Spiritual Living and boundless love and passion for working with youth. If you would like to join our team, please contact the Youth and Family Coordinator.
Our Teen program is live! Your teens are welcome to join our Teen Connect group every Sunday at 11am during the second service. We will use the time to connect and support each other as we work together on our spiritual paths. We may eat together, watch movies, read a thing or two, do some artwork, play games, and plan community service.
We are inclusive. This means that we accept you for who you are and who you are not. We have no secret agenda for you. We will work together to make the world a better place where everyone belongs.
Twice a year, Centers for Spiritual Living teens and teen group advisors congregate for a week long overnight teen camp, one in the summer and one in the winter. Teens who are interested in camp should come check out our Teen Connect group.
Aside from our weekly offerings on Sunday as well as Teen Connect- youth ages 100-100 are welcome to register for our educational programs at the Center at a discounted rate. Click here to see what is currently available.
Parent Support Group
Not ready to dive in just yet?
Your children and grandchildren are welcome in our Sanctuary during our regular Sunday Celebrations. We provide four easy, safe and fun ways for children and parents to be part of our Sunday services:
Children are always welcome to attend service in the Sanctuary with their parent(s) or guardian(s). There are coloring sheets available in the Social Hall.
For the youngest, 4 years and under, we have opened the Nursery where you and your little ones can spend time together or stay with Nursery Attendants.
We also have set up a large screen in the Social Hall, where accompanied children can play and enjoy their time together as they watch the service.
We have a small room where families can sit and not be worried about any of the natural noises children make.
I love to connect with families and youth- here’s how to contact me outside of program times!
