The Celebration Center for Spiritual Living supports the positive transformation of both our personal lives and the world itself.
At the Celebration Center for Spiritual Living, we teach people how to have a personal relationship with God. When we are deeply connected with Spirit, other areas of our lives fall into place — we can do more for others, be better stewards of the Earth, and bring more peace and harmony to the world.
What We Believe – Our Guiding Principles
We believe that the universe is spiritual and has intelligence, purpose, beauty, and order. Our beliefs are in harmony with all the world’s great spiritual teachings, and we honor all paths to God. Whether we call it God, Spirit, Energy, or Universal Intelligence, we are ever conscious that all people, places, and things emanate from this Universal Intelligence that is within us and all around us.
You and God are Inseparable
We believe that God is a Loving Intelligence, operating in and through all life, never separate from anyone or anything. Through study and spiritual practice we come to understand our oneness with this indwelling Divine Presence. We teach and practice a way of life where we can all learn how to live in accordance with spiritual principles. These principles, which we call the Science of Mind, are as reliable as the laws of physical science. We believe in Cause and Effect and teach that “It is done unto you as you believe.” In essence, your thinking and your expectations create your reality. By studying and applying spiritual laws, you can change your unconscious beliefs and create improved conditions in your life.
Be a Part of an Inclusive Community
The Celebration Center for Spiritual Living teaches a New Thought philosophy that incorporates affirmative prayer, meditation, healing, visioning, and other spiritual tools to help you lead a spiritual life, think positively, and love deeply. As a member of our community, you’ll find the spiritual tools to transform your personal life and make the world a more peaceful, harmonious, and prosperous place.
The New Thought tradition dates to the 1880s and has its roots in the Transcendentalist Movement of the 1830s. New Thought has an enduring and respected legacy that includes luminaries such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emma Curtis Hopkins, Phineas Quimby, and Walt Whitman. Some of the better known authors today whose writings represent our teachings are Michael Bernard Beckwith, Oprah Winfrey, Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, Byron Katie, and Eckhart Tolle, as well as many others. Our teachings incorporate the ancient wisdom of all the spiritual traditions through the ages. People of all spiritual paths — Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Islam, New Age and others — are all welcome in our communities.
Treatment by Rev. Faith Woods, RScP
I awake this morning, grateful for the opportunity to commune with Spirit. Wondering how Spirit will surprise and delight me as it shows up in my life today. I recognize its fullness, grandeur, creativity, love, joy and harmony. Stretching not only my body, but also my willingness to stay in the lovely, relaxing space of knowing and my connection to the All That Is, I pray.
As my connection to the Presence is fully felt, I gratefully recognize and do my part to stay in this magnificent flow of life today. I choose this for myself, so that we may all experience it more fully and completely together than ever before. I am grateful for the aspects of Life I know with my physical being and the aspects of life I experience beyond my physicality. I present Spirit with my best today and appreciate that my willingness to point to my true north is sufficient in all ways.
I know this willingness allows me to heed understandings, see beyond appearances, and truly move towards my highest good. I am free today to explore with friends, family, practitioners and my communities, and know the blessings of the day flow to each. Right now, I accept God’s good for each of us individually and collectively. I know that as we individually thrive, our Center thrives. I know that as we move forward emboldened by Spirit, our Center becomes a magnet and beacon of love. I see our Center as welcoming, open, and providing great love for all who enter. God provides abundantly and allows good to flow.
I am grateful that as I commune with Spirit, I also commune with all who are in prayer at this moment and the truth in my heart is known beyond these words. I am grateful for a day filled with understanding, loving and being. I am grateful for a day that flows in the currents of love. I am grateful for God that provides beauty and grandeur. I am grateful to remember all I am. I am grateful l for you.
Recognizing abundant blessings, I release this prayer into the Law with absolute assurance it is fully nurtured and ready to spring forth and provide goodness to this world.
And so it is.
