Coming Home – Awakening to Spirit

A support meeting designed for the new and long-term persons in sobriety to ‘reawaken’ our connection to Spirit, or our Higher Power. All are invited, even those who have never had problems with drugs or alcohol, as we can all benefit from the experiences and support of others in our community.

The format of this meeting will be general discussions of the problems we face in life, finding sobriety day-by-day and awakening our consciousness to help improve our lives.

Meeting will consist of meditation and sharing, then learning how gratitude can benefit us, and how to surrender problems to awaken to gratitude. We will learn how to connect with all of our relations for healing.

Facilitated by Gene & Joyce Fournier Stone.

This is a non-smoking facility and meeting.


Join us at 8 a.m. on Fridays  at The Center for Spiritual Living Capistrano Valley

1201 Puerta Del Sol, San Clemente, CA 92673



Current and Upcoming Classes

Satellite Class in Laguna Hills June 1st to August 3rd

Practical Mysticism

We are excited to offer an accredited class at the home of Rev. Pattie and Fred Mercado in Laguna Hills. This class, Practical Mysticism, has an emphasis on becoming a mystic rather than simply learning about the mystics.

The coursework will focus on four practices:

  • Meditation
  • Affirmative Prayer (Spiritual Mind Treatment)
  • The Practice of the Presence
  • The Witness of Consciousness

This course is entitled Practical Mysticism because true mystics are grounded and are comfortable with both their humanity and their divinity.  They are able to embrace both the light and the shadow side of themselves.  Students will have the opportunity to do specific soul work to embrace the totality of themselves, releasing blockages and       embodying the spiritual truth of their being.  The mystic is eminently practical because s/he is so steeped in spiritual truth that his/her life is a demonstration of the all-good of God.

Class Title: Practical Mysticism

Class Day and Time:  Thursday Evening, 6:30 p.m.

Class Duration: 10 weeks; June 1st to August 3rd

Class Location: Laguna Hills, contact the facilitator for the address

Class: “From Whence We Came”

Join Rev. Michael Heinlee for this ten-week class exploring the history of New Thought. If you like history, then From Whence We Came is a course you will find most interesting. You won’t have to memorize dates or place names. The history is one of ideas, which converged in American culture to become what we now know as Religious Science and the larger New Thought movement. These ideas originally arose before recorded history, but were rediscovered in the 19th century by some notable people whose works are read and discussed in this course. These great luminaries of New Thought were the first to frame them in words and make them accessible to the general public.

Class Title: From Whence We Came

Class Day and Time:  Tuesday evening, 7:00 p.m.
