Practitioner Studies

We are pleased to be one of the Centers for Spiritual Living offering a practitioner study program that leads to licensing as a CSL Practitioner. The program includes two years of study (after completion of CSL certified classes).

For more information, contact Rev. Larry King for an entrance interview. Practitioner Studies begin in the fall of each year.

Here are a list of required Certified Classes that are a prerequisite to Practitioner Studies. They are all offered on a two-year rotational basis at PCSL.
