We Are

One word reflects the essence of those that call Center for Spiritual Living Crossroads home…

 

COURAGEOUS

The origin of the word COURAGE is Latin cor, Old French corage, and eventually Middle English distinguishing the heart as the center of feelings.

All involved with CSLC are encouraged to wholeheartedly:

  • Be available to Divine Inspiration
  • Follow the guidance of Infinite Wisdom
  • Rely on the magnificence of Spirit to face change, make decisions, and allow their highest good.

Inner resilience to move in the direction of divinely guided dreams… with optimism and joy… is always supported. So navigated by courage, life may be viewed as a marvelous journey.

Center for Spiritual Living Crossroads History

In March 2012, Rev. Jarie felt an urge to leave the very fine and wonderful Center for Spiritual Living in Kansas City. The urge was so strong that she would not deny it. So, though she wasn’t sure what she’d do next, she knew that her work at CSLKC was complete.

By June 2012, an even stronger urge arrived to create and nurture, from idea to form, a new CSL spiritual community.

This urge actually came as a question. Are you willing to co-create and lead the second Center for Spiritual Living in the greater Kansas City area? Gently demanding an answer, this question didn’t go away.

So, standing in the mystery of this question while listening with an open heart, though both frightened yet intrigued, the spiritual practice of visioning paved the way to step forward… resulting in…

CSL Crossroads.
