• The vote is in! 74 members of CSLN voted. 70 voted to sell the building and attract a new home for CSLN. We know that for some, this was not the desired outcome. We will move forward as a community to make sure there is a plan to address any concerns. The work begins now for a Transition Team to explore the options for our new space, identify what we will bring with us, what we will let go of and put together a plan to keep our community informed and connected through this process. We will also address an interim plan in the event it is required. Please let Annie know if you would like to volunteer to be on the Transition Team and help make this happen! The first meeting date will be announced this week. The Board of Trustees will meet in person on August 9th at 6:30 at the Center with 2 realtors we have spoken with to decide how to proceed with listing the building. Meredith Green will be putting together a Visualization and Vision Board gathering to begin forming the picture of what we will create.

Soul Refresh & Meditation
We are taking a summer break during July and August.
Soul Refresh and Meditation will resume on Sept 7.

There is one mind, one heart, one spirit, and one divine presence expressing through all life and it expresses through me as my life. I declare the Divine is operating as perfect health, as overflowing abundance, supportive and enriching relationships, continued spiritual growth and peace and harmony as I navigate through each day. I also express as rebirth and beginner mind which allows me to look inward to the principles of the Science of Mind knowing love is the way, supporting me. This is encouraging me, healing me, and surrounding me with beauty and grace. I experience this love and light with each breath I take. In each moment through my breath, I express courage, patience, wisdom and a greater awareness of all the wonderful gifts and opportunities I am presented by the Divine Spirit. There is absolutely nothing that can stand in the way of my goodness, my joy, and the knowing I am supported and loved by Divine Spirit. I give great gratitude in this knowing and I accept this truth. I am perfect, whole, and complete in all ways. Thank you Spirit for this magnificent life, my life. And so it is!
