Focus Ministry - the Spiritual Frontier

There is a shift in consciousness, awareness, and spiritual practice happening right now in the Western world. The trend is away from large congregations (except for the mega-churches, of course) and toward smaller, more personal communities. In addition, today’s technology has opened up a new venue for spiritual practice and spiritual community. This shift is also showing up in the approaches of newly minted, and sometimes newly shifted, ministers. Centers for Spiritual Living refers to these non-traditional ministers as Focus Ministers. Focus ministers are, by definition, unique. Each one approaches ministry from a perspective that has not been seen in the brick-and-mortar centers. Some examples are:

     • Music ministry     • Prison ministry      • Online education     • Yoga and Spirituality      • Retreat and teaching center

These are just a few of the over 40 different versions of focus ministry currently affiliated with Centers for Spiritual Living. What they have in common is portability, or accessibility. Each one takes the spiritual practice wherever it is needed, either physically or online.

The table below shows all of the currently active CSL Focus Ministries, sorted by state/country, with contact information and a direct email link for each.

Saying Goodbye A Return to Wholeness

Rev. Toni Cormier

5706 Cahalan Ave., #23397

Lathrop, CA



The primary goal of this ministry is to create a sacred space for individuals to examine their personal beliefs regarding death/dying and grief/loss. These all too often taboo topics are an inevitability for all of us, so why not gain knowledge and resources which will allow one to make informed decisions and/or transformation. This ministry also provides individual support that allows one to “say goodbye” to a loved one, relationship, or career. These events can have a direct correlation to the grief process. The grief process is like taking a trip but one does not know where they are going, who will be there to support them, how long it will take, or what they will need; however, along the journey one can discover the resiliency of the human spirit. Our mission is to empower, nurture and guide people through pivotal life transitions.
