The Center for Spiritual Living, Redding
It's been five years since the Center for Spiritual Living, Redding, has had a Photographic Directory done, so the time has come for a new directory! Sign-up at the back of the Sanctuary or call Cynthia Bellah at 530-262-8562, to participate!
The Center for Spiritual Living in Redding, California, provides spiritual tools to transform our personal lives and help make the world a better place.
The Center for Spiritual Living, Redding, is a spiritual community and way of life that honors all paths to God and helps people to discover a personal relationship with God. When God is the focus of our spirituality, then other areas of our lives fall into place — we are happier, we can do more for others, be better stewards of the Earth and bring peace and harmony to the world.
We extend a warm welcome to all people in search of a spiritual community where they are embraced, respected, accepted for who they are, inspired and supported to grow to their highest potential.
No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.
Are you feeling alone, lost, empty or disconnected? Are you in crisis? Are you lacking fulfillment, looking for answers, healing and a spiritual home?
At the Center for Spiritual Living, Redding, you will find a like-minded community, a spiritual home, where you can discover peace of mind, healing, inspiration and live with a personal relationship with God. We look forward to meeting you in person!Back to Top

Minister's Message for April 2015
"Out beyond ideas of right thinking and wrong thinking, there is a field. I'll meet you there." Rumi
"All our faith, all our reasonings, are to the end of opening our eyes to see the Real World." Emma Curtis Hopkins, Scientific Christian Mental Practice
I recently was sharing with a group of people that I had planted a vegetable garden of things like lettuce, spinach, broccoli and other "cool weather" crops. I was immediately overwhelmed with all the advice I got. Some told me I had planted too late, that everything would "bolt" with the early heat we were experiencing. Others told me I had planted too early, that there was still a possibility of weather too cold for the plants to survive.
We are often surrounded by the thoughts and opinions of others. They are usually well meaning, but can be in seeming conflict with each other, leaving us more confused than before. It's important, at these times, to have a good connection with the Voice Within. Ultimately, we have to listen to our own Inner Wisdom and act from that inspiration. I find there's a sense of "knowing" that can guide us. Some experience it as "God bumps," others as tears that are of joy and clarity. For some, it's just a deep sense of "knowing" or "yes, this is right for me."
Emma Curtis Hopkins reminds us that if we have turmoil, it is because we have tried to believe in both evil and good at the same time. It is tremendously important that we determine what that Truth and Reality is for us, guided by Spirit within. We listen to - and then practice - our deep "knowing." Once we know this Truth, we stand in Faith - both faith "in" God and the faith "of" God - that which said, "Let there be..." and there was. We apply that same power and creativity to our life. But, we can only do so when we KNOW we are in alignment with our Highest Truth. Anything less won't generate the deep knowing required for manifestation. Take time to listen - then walk in faith.
This month marks one year since I arrived. It has been a wonderful journey and I am so grateful to get to know the people of this community and for all the support you have given. I KNOW I am truly blessed to be here at CSL Redding and intend to continue to bless this community in every way I can. Thank you.
