Happy February! This month traditionally kicks off our annual Membership Drive and this year is no different – yay!
This is the time to either renew your membership with the Centre for Spiritual Living Kelowna, or to declare your membership for the first time. It’s a very conscious and mindful way to declare that you belong to the Centre for Spiritual Living Kelowna.
It goes without saying, this has been quite a year! It’s been pretty easy to feel apart and separate with the stay-at-home orders we’ve been under. However, when I think about it, this has made membership feel even more important to me. No matter what’s going on, I choose to take the time to remember that I am part of something greater than myself. No matter what, I have a community of consciousness and support behind me, and all I have to do is bring that to my mind and remember!
I was thinking back to when I first took out a membership in any kind of spiritual community. It was shortly after I had been introduced to the Science of Mind teaching in Palm Desert, California. I’d been involved in a kind of ‘superficial’ way for about 6 months, and when the Membership Drive came up, I remember being so moved to want to sign up and say, “I’m in! I want to belong. I want to join. I want to be counted as one who believes in this teaching and who chooses to live it the best I can.” And so, with such a sense of feeling privileged for the opportunity to be known as a member, I filled out the form. With such honour, I enclosed the $15 donation (which was a lot of money for me at that time).
I really felt like it was an investment in me, and a powerful part of my “YES!” I would love to think that might be true for you, too!
Our Centre is still in a time of much uncertainty; however, we are committed to reaching out and offering this empowering, life-enhancing teaching to as many people as we can, and we are still here for you!
Our spiritual community is owned by our members, so I invite you to be a mindful owner and to be a part of our vibrant spiritual community by going to our website, cslkelowna.org, and clicking on the orange MEMBERSHIP button. It'll take you to my invitation to membership letter and our easy form with ways to give your $50 voluntary membership donation.
Thank you for your meaningful support!

The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers and cities; but to know someone who thinks and feels with us, and who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.
