Oakland Center for Spiritual Living

The Oakland Center for Spiritual Living is a safe, welcoming sanctuary, a place for people to explore, expand and experience their own spiritual nature. By educating and empowering people, The Center encourages an expanded experience of wellness for all who seek that experience.

We are a diverse, inclusive community of people seeking to realize our highest Truth and live our full spiritual potential. Based on spiritual principle, we support ourselves and each other by being a place where love, joy, beauty and the fullness of life are nourished and nurtured.

Through the teaching and practice of the Principles of Science of Mind and Spirit and other New Thought / Ancient Wisdom teachings, we provide a place to learn philosophical and practical tools, and to practice personal and global transformation.

At Oakland Center for Spiritual Living, we believe…

  • In the infinite goodness of Spirit
  • In the spiritual nature of Mind, Body, Heart & Soul
  • In the Divinity of all life, of all creation
  • That love is the greatest power
  • That the highest God and the innermost God is One God
  • In the inherent goodness of ourselves and of each other
  • That diversity is the nature of creation
  • That we have the power to change our lives, and our world

Every fall at the Oakland Center we look ahead to the coming year, to plan, to budget, and to craft and nurture a mental equivalent of greater good. Each year builds on the last, so it serves us to pause and look. What was accomplished this year? What is our financial condition? Where do we stand now?
2018 has been a year of wonderful accomplishments, not the least of which have been the improvements to our facilities: New roofs on both of our buildings, new exterior paint for both buildings; resurfacing and completion of our parking lots; beautiful gardens, new exterior lighting, and the upcoming new street entrance to our parking lot.
If trends continue it looks like we will end this year with our income meeting our expenses, at least breaking even, with all bills paid and no debt accrued. Big thanks to all who have given of their time, talent and treasure to make that happen. It really does take a village.
 We are poised now to expand our programs even further. A 10% increase in revenue in 2019 will allow us to begin to do just that. To that end, we ask you to prayerfully consider your 2019 contribution. Whatever you give, know that we are grateful, honored, and do not take it for granted.  If you are in a position to increase your giving 10% or more in 2019, please do consider it. There is more for us to do, and it’s up to the village to make that possible.
 Finally, we invite and encourage you to auto-tithe in the coming year. This makes it exponentially easier for us to plan and steward our resources and expenses.
 Thank you for your generosity, for your amazing hearts and for all that you contribute to the Oakland Center for Spiritual Living. All is well, and the best is yet to come!
 With Love and Great Gratitude,
Rev. Jeffrey Anderson, Senior Minister
