Become a Practitioner

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.
