Teen Group


The Teen Group meets in Room 11 from 11:15 to 12:45 weekly, in what is effectively the teen lounge.  Weekly activities include discussion, interactive work and play, music, written word, art and more, exploring questions of spirit, personal and global transformation.  Our teen advisors guide the group in prayer and explore spiritual principals for daily living in a fun and relevant way.

Our teens work together on service projects, fundraisers, retreats and social events.

Being in Teen Group

by Camille Escovedo, age 14
I have always enjoyed church, but when I was old enough to go to Teen Group, I was nervous. So every week I would say, “Uh, Mom, I’m gonna go with you to service this time.”
Finally I said to myself, “Why not?” And it’s been awesome. I walked into Teen Group, and everyone there, sprawled out together on the couches and looking very enlightened, welcomed me like an old friend, and I kept coming back.
Over the year I bonded with my fellow teens, these life-changing individuals who are all so close to me now; they’re family. No matter what happens, I love them, and they love me, too.
I have found where I belong—with people who all love and adore each other unconditionally. I am living in the exhilaration of being a part of something so much bigger than I am. It is the most beautiful thing I have ever experienced in my life, and I can never go back!

From Angela Church


angela_church copy.jpgHi, my name is Angela Church. I am 17 and I’ve spent my whole life at the Santa Rosa Center for Spiritual Living. I am a Science of Mind child through and through.
This teaching has given me everything that I have and has gotten me through every bit of my “rough teenage years” so far. I am so comforted to know that I have a community of people who love me unconditionally. I have a whole network of people who inspire and encourage me every day.
Last month I went to the Integration Conference in San Diego. It was so inspiring and touching to watch the two organizations that have been so close to my heart put an end to the question “Why are there two organizations that are teaching oneness?”
Amidst this huge change, I was temporarily focused elsewhere. With beauty and love surrounding me, I was thinking about my woes. I cried and suffered and eventually got it together enough to call up a friend. He reminded me that I have a spiritual toolbox bursting with things that I can use to reshape my thinking and restore peace in my life. So I swallowed my pride and chose to have a great time. And then I did!
I have the power to change the world around me as I know it. So do you. Let’s learn to use what good ol’ Ernie gave us.

CSL Teens do service day at camp!

As part of our summer camp experience from June 26th to July 3rd, we spent a whole day packing over 50,000 food packages for hungry families in Tanzania and Malawi. The whole event was organized by an amazing group from Outreach International. The ICSL teens under the leadership of Rev. Keith Cox have built 14 schools in Malawi and plan another trip next year with more teens.

Here are many of our youth and advisors with the boxes of food we packed.

Teens At The Center

Click here for the Teen Page

Our teen group meets on Sundays from 11:15 to 12:45 in the North wing of the Center which is through the farthest double doors from the entrance on Occidental Road.  

The format of our group includes, spiritual mind treatment a review of the spiritual principal for the day, a personal check in and some version of an experiential workshop with a focus on life choices with a spiritual or metaphysical aspect.

The teens are encouraged to participate and contribute to the conversations and activities at their own comfort level.

Our group size varies from week to week with approximately 12-20 teens. New teens are always welcome as are visitors to our area. We recommend that a new teen gives the group 3 or 4 times to see if it works for them or not.  If a teen gives it a chance, we think they will learn to love us.
