Adult Spiritual Education

We offer two distinct types of courses, Accredited CSL Classes and Enrichment Classes.

Accredited CSL Classes

Accredited CSL classes are certified classes that are offered through Centers for Spiritual Living home office and taught by our Practitioners or Minister. These courses are typically longer in duration – 5 to 10 classes (1 meeting per week). These accredited classes may meet in person or online, and satisfy the pathway to becoming a Practitioner. (Scroll down to find out more about the Practitioner Pathway.) A student interested in taking Core Curriculum must first take Foundations of Science of Mind or Beyond Limits as a prerequisite to all other Accredited CSL classes. 

Enrichment Classes

Enrichment classes are also offered by our licensed Practitioners, Ministers or qualified members of the CSL Prescott community. These classes are typically shorter in duration (1 to 4 workshops) and don’t require any prerequisites. They may be on the Science of Mind or on other related topics that add depth and breadth to your spiritual practice and your integrated life.
