YOUTH PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

Children are not “empty vessels,” but full expressions of Spirit waiting to be revealed. At Center for Spiritual Living we teach our youth to believe in themselves and trust their own intuition and wisdom. We provide them with a safe and nurturing environment to explore their spirituality and to gain a foundation of values using Science of Mind principles. We encourage our youth to develop a personal relationship with Spirit through the practices of:

  •Affirmations
  •Meditation
  •Arts, Crafts and Music
  •Service and Community

OUR CURRICULUM

Science of Mind principles form the basis of our youth curriculum. We teach children that Spirit manifests in and through all of creation. They learn how they can interact with Spirit as a co-creative partner. Our youth program present great ways to grow and nurture the innate curiosity and keenness that exists in our youth.
Key principles taught at CSL are:

  • Core Values
  • Life Skills and Strategies
  • Problem Solving
  • Making Good Choices
  • Self-Awareness and Self-Esteem

OUR CLASSES

Nursery (Newborn to 3 years)
We provide childcare service for infants and toddlers. We believe seeds of spirituality can be planted even in the early years. Our volunteers provide a loving
environment for babies and toddlers that supports their natural creativity.

Youth (4 to 12 years)
Our youth classes are all about learning in a fun and loving environment. We teach children to form an inner connection with Spirit. We work with them to develop character traits such as compassion toward others, creativity, respect and integrity.

Teen Program
Our teen program focuses on teaching them to understand their unique ability to create their own experience. As their bodies go through changes, so do their minds. We encourage and teach rites of passage into adulthood so they can make the transition from child to adult smoother. We also incorporate the use of technology and apps for smart phones to help them develop a daily spiritual practice.

Youth and Family Services: June Curriculum 2019

June 2nd – God Is Your Adventure
I am an adventurer and life is an adventure.

June 23rd – What Do You See In the Mirror?
Like animals, other human beings can sense your feelings and emotions. Life is like a mirror in that it reflects back to you what you think, believe, and act on in your life. In order to live a happy and fulfilling life, you have to first find love, joy and peace within yourself. Once you do, you will see that life will return that back to you in the people that you meet and the things that you do.

June 30th – You Get What You Give
Do Unto others as you would have them do unto you. What you give out to other people is what will come back to you. Give others love, respect, joy and kindness and that will return back to you.
