LEtter to Our Community

March 28, 2020

Dear Beloved Community,

How have you adjusted to this new way of life? Are you doing well, being out of normal habits or are you struggling to find new routines? Me? I was dreaming about Zoom rooms all night last night! So today I needed to give myself a break from the computer screen. I called a few people, had some good conversations over the phone and took care of myself. I hope you are doing the same and being compassionate with yourselves as you adjust.

If you are in our Members Directory, practitioners will be reaching out to you in the next few days to check-in and see how you are doing. We look forward to engaging with you in new ways to be social while being physically distant from one another. If there is anything we can do for you, please let us know by calling the Center. If you need Compassionate Care, our team is available for you. Please call our team leader, Toni Campbell or let a Practitioner know. We are here for you, even while we are a part.

So as change continues to come, we have also made changes. Several Center activities have already gone online. Mo Baumgartner led the choir via Zoom on Thursday night with her ukulele and they had a wonderful time laughing and singing together. Liz George, certified yoga instructor, is offering yoga online for spiritual practice and movement together this week. Rev. Connie Asquith led the Course in Miracles online and Joni Samples is offering the Community Circle on the Brain. We are so blessed to have so many willing to jump into a new way of connecting with each other. Thanks to all of you making the leap into the online world.

If you haven’t been to our web site lately, we have changed the front page. Our last 3 guided meditations on YouTube can reached directly from the front page so help yourself to some peace and calm. And we have something new: “Community Blogs.” One blog will be Science of Mind Treatments. Thank you Rev. Dr. Carolyn McKeown-Fish for your prayer “I Am the Health of God,” to start off our blogging of treatments. Go take a look at it! And thank you Annalisa Cunningham for your article “Let’s Rename ‘Social Distancing’ to ‘Physical Distancing.’” Please let me know if you would be interested in contributing a blog article. We look forward to sharing with one another our reflections on these unprecedented times and how we use the principles of Science of Mind to align ourselves with our Higher Truths for greater demonstrations in our lives and the world.

I’m very excited to have Rev. Jan Mark Velasquez back at our Center and speaking to us about Spiritual Mind Treatment, a powerful spiritual tool and a great reminder for us to use in these times.

See you online!

In the Light of Love,

Spiritual Director
Center for Spiritual Living, Chico
