Spirtual Living Classes

The Centre for Spiritual Living Edmonton Metro provides spiritual tools that transform lives and make the world a better place!

No matter who you are or what the current issues on your path, in classes you will find a new perspective – in a timeless message that is totally relevant for today. Each class is taught in a fun and fast-paced format. The support of shared insights and the opportunity to ask questions in a classroom setting offer a learning environment not easily duplicated with solitary study. The discipline of regular attendance and the weekly readings create a framework for asking the big questions about life and our place in it.

Our programs are designed to help you develop into your highest self-expression in each area of your life – health, work, finances and relationships. What we know is consciousness is evolving and developmental – that means being aware that there’s always more to learn, more to do, more to become.

If we wish to live a deeply spiritual life, we must develop competency in the basics of living within the complexity of this physical world, and develop emotional intelligence in understanding ourselves and others.

We need to develop a mental discipline to sustain the status quo yet be open and receptive to innovation and creativity.

And as we move into higher levels of conscious competency we begin to understand the far-reaching implications of our interconnectedness to all life, that we are indeed our brothers’ keepers and custodians of this planet.

Spiritual Fitness

Spiritual Fitness

Spiritual Fitness is a lifestyle and an attitude that can help you rediscover the real meaning and sacredness of your life. Like physical fitness, it’s not a one off deal – it needs your ongoing commitment. To stay spiritually fit means living in truth and trust i.e. being yourself at the deepest level in everything you do, bringing all of you to your life experiences. It also means trusting that there is a greater power constantly guiding you and inviting you, through your life experiences, to live more openly and lovingly. When we trust, we start to make our choices and decisions from a place of love and courage instead of from fear. This in turn gives us clarity and strength.

What will you learn?

  • You will learn about your connectedness to an infinite power for good which you can use.
  • You will learn how to apply Universal Principles in your daily life and get results.
  • You will learn the art of positive prayer called Spiritual Mind Treatment.

It's All God

It’s All God

In his book, It’s All God , Walter Starcke has managed to take one of metaphysics’ greatest truths and put them into a form and flow of words which are easy to grasp. Starcke has done a masterful job of clarifying the necessity of finding a realistic balance between living in the Absolute and the Relative world: It’s not a matter of “one or the other,” but rather, discovering the key to doing both at the same time. His concept of the Double Thread is the key element.

This class is designed to be presented over an eight week period. One class should be presented per week, with each class lasting for a minimum of two hours. Please bring a personal journal to the first class.
