Spiritual Director - Center for Spiritual Awakening

Pacific Grove, California

The Center for Spiritual Awakening on the Monterey Peninsula in Pacific Grove, California, is searching for a Spiritual Director as our founder Dr. Bill Little goes into retirement.

The Center, formerly Pacific Coast Church, is based in Religious Science and is a member of ANTN. We include the wisdom of other teachings. Dr. Bill, who has a PhD in physics, blends science, Eastern Mysticism, Science of Mind, and other spiritual traditions Into his approach. Embracing Ernest Holmes’ admonition to stay “open at the top,” we have guest speakers from many traditions including Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Christian Mysticism and others.

Although we are a Religious Science based-teaching we embrace the wisdom from other metaphysical teachings and all the world’s spiritual traditions.

Dr Bill founded our spiritual community some 40 years ago and some of his early followers are still part of our congregation. For 20 years we’ve been in our beautiful building with its circular sanctuary in the heart of Pacific Grove, one block from the Pacific Ocean. Our facility includes a metaphysical book and gift store, The Mind Shop, that opens to the street to serve the greater community.

We offer Sunday services, junior church, classes, meditation, and workshops. We hold weddings, concerts, art shows and inspiring events in our sanctuary, community room and beautiful garden.

We are searching for a minister who is experienced, enthusiastic, inclusive, and inspiring. We look forward to hearing from you, and we thank you for your interest.

Applicants, please reply to Rev. Cynthia at the email below.
