At the Center for Spiritual Living Greater Baltimore, Spiritual Education is not only important it is in absolute alignment with our Vision, Mission, Purpose, and Values. 

The courses we offer give the willing student the tools and techniques to not only manage and navigate the complexities of life but to thrive in perfect alignment with the Divine Magnificence of your being!

Throughout the year we offer a wide variety of Online opportunities and once the COVID recommendations have lifted we will reinstate our In-person courses.

In addition to the CSLGB courses we offer, we also have various on-going opportunities to join us. 

Every Wednesday Rev. Dr. Ray facilitates the "Science of Mind textbook Exploration Group" which is a group of people reading and discussing the Science of Mind textbook from cover to cover. Feel free to contact us to see where they are currently in the text.

Every Thursday Licensed Practitioner Dr. Roni Ellington facilitates a "Study Group" that takes the message of that Sunday and opens the forum for discussion and Q and A opportunities. 

At the end of each month, Nancie Rosenberg and Robin Farinholt host a Movie Night where a "Spiritual" movie is screened and followed by a lively discussion.

March movie:  "Finding Joe - A film about Joseph Campbell's hero's journey"

We also have our "Discovery Class" (which is part of the process for membership) accessible Online when you are ready to become a member.

Spiritual Rebel:
A 4-week journey of modern spirituality


“Spiritual Rebel offers wonderful ways to deepen spirituality without compromising your truth. Bowen’s delightful book smashes assumptions and stereotypes while managing deep respect for diverse beliefs. As soon as I finished it, I knew I wanted to read it again and again.”

—Tami Meise, Media Review in Guide for Spiritual Living: Science of Mind Magazine

Course Description:

Chaotic times call for embracing our rebellious sides in service to change. Rather than relying on adherence to a single belief system, Spiritual Rebel encourages you to clarify the beliefs that are personally meaningful for you, redefine unhelpful concepts you might be hanging on to, engage deeply with spiritual practices, and ask curious questions about your higher purpose. Introducing unconventional practices—including virtual forest bathing, yawning, meditating with your pets, and lectio terrestris just to name just a few—this course helps you deepen your spiritual connection in everything that you do.

Tuesdays starting Fall Dates and Times TBA 

Week 1: Rebels unite: Create our sangha and learn about trends in modern spirituality

Week 2: Taking out the sacred trash: Explore your personal codes and convictions

Week 3: Spiritual moments: Try new practices for divine connection

Week 4: Of myths, movies, & motivation: Find inspiration in your heroes and seed a plan for fully embracing your higher purpose
