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.

Stand Up strong and always remember that you are Love! We all sometimes hear voices in our heads about so many different things. In those times, it’s important to remember those thoughts do not make up who we are. They are merely thoughts that are passing through us.

February 10 – The Secrets of the Spiritual Heart
Live a Happy Life! In this week’s lesson, the children will explore the fact that sometimes things make us upset or bother us but the secret of the spiritual heart is learning how to let things go that bother us so we can make room for happy & positive thoughts to fill our heart lives

February 17 – Let Go Now or Fall
Do Your Best! Today we will focus on keeping a positive attitude and perspective. When you have a positive attitude, you can stand strong and start to see good things happening right before your eyes.

February 24 – Taking Down the Walls
You can do anything that you put your mind too. You have the power to redefine your thoughts and let go of past situations so they don’t stand in the way of you being the best you can be which will also help shape the world.
