About The Center for Spiritual Living Capistrano Valley

Founded in 1968, the Center for Spiritual Living Capistrano Valley is one of 450 Centers for Spiritual Living organizations worldwide, dedicated to providing spiritual tools to transform personal lives and help make the world a better place.

The Center for Spiritual Living Capistrano Valley offers a community for spiritual seekers who believe that the universe has intelligence, purpose, beauty and order; and integrates spiritual tools, such as affirmative prayer, meditation and visioning, to provide a greater personal relationship with God.

Originally founded in San Clemente in 1968 and later relocated to San Juan Capistrano, the Center recently returned to San Clemente with the 2012 purchase of a building in the Talega Business Park, 1201 Puerta Del Sol. Sunday services are held at 10:20 a.m. preceded by a guided meditation at 10 a.m. The Center offers a variety of services, classes, youth programs, and prayer support.

One of more than 450 Centers for Spiritual Living world wide, the Center teaches spiritual principles, such as cause and effect and the law of attraction, initially introduced by mystics thousands of years ago and recently proven by science and physics. This New Thought tradition dates to the 1880s and has its roots in the Transcendentalist Movement of the 1830s. New Thought has a respected and enduring legacy that includes luminaries such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Walt Whitman and Ernest Holmes. Modern day writers and philosophers who echo the New Thought ideas include Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Louise Hay and Eckhart Tolle among many others.

The Center Sunday Services

Wherever you are on your spiritual path, you are welcome at the Center on Sunday morning. At the beginning of each service, one of our ministers leads the congregation in a candle lighting ceremony honoring all the major spiritual traditions of the world and, most importantly, the individual’s unique path.

The Sunday morning service offers live music featuring weekly musical guest artists, a guided meditation, and an inspirational talk designed to provide personal insight for greater growth and expression. Monthly themes include authenticity, connection, finding balance, practice, self-worth, and abundance.

The Center’s inspiring services begin at 10:20 a.m. on Sunday and are preceded by a 15-minute guided meditation at 10 a.m.

Youth Programs

Due to COVID, our Youth Program and Youth Church have been on hiatus. Sunday Youth Church and other Youth, Teen and Family programs are in the development stage and expected to return soon. For more information or to be involved in planning, contact pamelar@cslcv.org.

The Center’s Blog

To provide spiritual insight and inspiration online and throughout the week, the Center’s blog features messages, videos and quotes from our ministers and other New Thought luminaries. The blog also offers previews of upcoming speakers and musical guests. See what’s happening on the Center’s blog.

Parent Forum

The Parent Forum was developed as a discussion group offering friendship, enlightening topics and spiritual tools for parents looking to interact with their kids in a more spiritually centered way. The Forum has been on hiatus.

The Jewel Tones Choir

For music lovers and singers, the Center offers the Jewel Tone Choir, created to provide beautiful music with New Thought inspiration during the Sunday service on the third Sunday of each month. Led by Diane King Vann, the Jewel Tone choir practices weekly, 7 – 9 p.m., in the sanctuary, and all are welcome to participate. Contact pamelar@cslcv.org for more information.
