Certified Classes

We generally offer one or two CSL-Certified classes each term. You may register for them at the back of the sanctuary in the Center, or phone-in your registration at 503-261-0677 during office hours. Our Certified classes count towards meeting requirements for entering Practitioner Studies, but are also taken for personal enrichment. If you’re not in the Portland metropolitan area, you may also be interested in our self-study guides.
