New Summer Sangha Community Starts at CSL Granada Hills July 15

Liberation is in the MindA new six-week Sangha class is starting this summer at the Center for Spiritual Living Granada Hills on Wednesday, July 15, at 9:30 AM!

What is a sangha? Why should you attend? Learn more about sanghas in our previous post here.

Rev. Jeanne Hoffman has picked out six subjects for us to explore through video, writing, and discussion. The subjects are somewhat controversial, so this Sangha is sure to include some meaningful dialogue!

Remember to bring beginner’s mind along with respect and confidentiality for all who share.

We hope to see you on the 15th when this Sangha begins. Sign up in advance by calling our Center at 1-818-363-8136 or by adding your name to the sign-up list in Sparks Fellowship Hall.

We meet in the sanctuary. PLEASE BE ON TIME so that you are a part of setting the intention for our time together (it begins at 9:30 sharp; arrive earlier to find parking and find your perfect seat) .

We will break in approximately one hour from our start time, so anyone who needs to move their car can do so. Please consider carpooling if that is an option for you.

For more information about our Sangha community and other classes, workshops, and opportunities to join our CSLGH community, please call call our Center at 1-818-363-8136 or use our contact form to send an email.

New Prosperity Plus Program Starts July 9 at Center for Spiritual Living

ProsperityIf you just landed on this blog post, it must mean you should attend the next Prosperity Plus program at the Center for Spiritual Living Granada Hills!

This is a very popular program by Mary Morrissey that starts on Thursday, July 9, 2015.

If you are seeing this after Thursday, July 9th, please contact our Center for Spiritual Living Granada Hills using our contact page or by calling 818-363-8136. We may be able to add you to the class.

Prosperity Plus is a very popular program at our Center. But, before we go on and on about that, let’s start by dispelling some of the myths about prosperity.

First, prosperity is not just about money and your bank account. Prosperity also includes health, your spiritual experiences, your career, and your relationships.

Second, only some people are prosperous. In the teaching of the Centers for Spiritual Living, we are all prosperous. You may not know this, but right now you have everything you need, and your thoughts influence what you get. Do your thoughts reflect lack and limitation or are you focused on positive, prosperous thoughts? We believe that through the power of positive thinking, you can achieve everything you want.

Third, prosperity is due to luck. Some people win the lottery; some people have a good life; some people are healthy; some people are happy. Wrong. All people have an opportunity to live a good life. It is already happening if you accept it!

Will you accept Prosperity in your life? Meet some new and wonderful people who will support your desire to change and grow? Find a way to begin achieving health, wealth and happiness?

The program goes for 10 weeks and the time is from 7:00 to 9:00 PM.

Check out our Prosperity Plus information page on the website. Call us at 818-363-8136 if you have questions or to sign up. Take that first step to make your life change in ways you never imagined possible. We’d love to have you join us at Prosperity Plus in Granada Hills!

“Dharma is great compassion, understanding, and love. To realize these qualities, we need a sangha… When a sangha shines its light on our personal views, we see more clearly. In the sangha, we won’t fall into negative habit patterns.”

Thich Nhat Hahn, The Heart of The Buddha’s Teaching

Sign up in Sparks Hall or call the office at 818-363-8136 to be signed in. If you need us to order you a book, please let the office know. The Sangha meets in the Sanctuary and/or in the classroom in Sparks Fellowship hall at the Center. Parking is on the street or in the back parking lot directly behind our Center.
