Lauren Ballardini, R.Sc.P

I am fortunate to be raised in our teaching.  Becoming a Licensed Practitioner in 2010 was a highlight in my journey.  This journey continues as I continue the work to grow in consciousness.
My goal in life is to see the Good/God in all of life, no matter the circumstance.  I seek to bring that same consciousness to whomever I work with and to remember I am not the one who does the work; I am simply standing in Truth with God to know it for others.
Teaching principal is what I enjoy doing whether it is in a private session or by teaching classes at our Center.  If I can assist in helping to align yourself with your Truth, please know I’m here.

Cathy Beatty, R.Sc.P

Cathy BeattyI always loved to volunteer, so as a young teen I volunteered at St. Joseph’s hospital. This truly taught me to begin my life of giving to others and my spiritual journey. I fell in love with giving to others.

We moved to Las Vegas to be near family. I found the Center and began classes right away. I absolutely love this teaching and know that all receives joy, love, Peace, abundance in all areas of life now! And So It Is…

Ian Bentley, R.Sc.P

Cathy Beatty“Over the past fifteen years, I’ve explored spirituality and philosophy while working as a music teacher. Through these teachings, I’ve discovered a deep passion for learning as much as possible about oneness and how life gets to be the way it is – and helping people with the information I’ve learned and lived. As a Licensed Practitioner and Quantum Living Coach, I’m focused on helping people to deepen their spirituality and remember the truth of who they are. I love nothing more than to share spiritual tools and offer guidance and support to others. For more information or to contact me, please visit”

Ardelia Courson, R.Sc.P

I have always felt that where I am, God is and that the whole world has always been my church. After six years of studies, I am a Licensed Practitioner. Upon entering the summer of my life, my mission is to help others realize their true nature quicker than I have.

One of my favorite things to do is assist in Science of Mind classes. I feel I have so much to give to our global family, living and teaching the principles and values of Science of Mind and showing unconditional love to everyone.

Gina Giordano, R.Sc.P

Jamie Jette, R.Sc.P

Jamie JetteHi there, Seeker. Many years ago, I was once lost, confused, and lonely when I walked through the doors to the Sanctuary that first day. Yes, sitting in the last row and seat closest to the exit, in case I wanted to make a bee line out to my car. Except something happened here, I felt good, safe, comfortable. I found a community!

This community that spoke my language, no matter how new I was to this philosophy. Fast forward to this moment, now. Many hours of educating classes that gave me the tools, Wisdom, and Courage to dive deeper with myself and the old belief patterns that weren’t working for me anymore. Today I have discovered and uncovered through this community here at LVCSL what ignites each day for me.

I am a strong passionate Affirmative Prayer (I can explain when we talk), Educator, Motivator, Confidential Listener, and a Loyal Friend for all who come within ear shot of my voice or eyesight of my smile. My P.O.P Purpose on Planet is raising up the vibration one soul at a time! Ready to tune in, tap in and turn on a new life for yourself? Come on, let’s get started and explore all these wonderful opportunities, just waiting to be discovered. Together, you and I, Jamie Jette, along with this community can ignite your new life as we walk this spiritual path starting right where you are. (702) 539-1185

Dasie Spikes, RScPWhen I arrived in Las Vegas, I found the Las Vegas Center for Spiritual Living. The Center has literally changed my life. It gives me great joy to know that my life is new every day and I feel privileged to be able to focus my attention on the moment.

I am grateful to know that every moment is a God moment and it is always good no matter what it looks like. I have chosen to live a loving and happy life that is focused on service.

Carmen Rogers, R.Sc.P

I became a member of LVCSL in 2009 where I began to take Science of Mind classes and later became a Practitioner.  As a little girl I always affirmed my good which has now come to be my life. I love using affirmative prayer, it allows me to be clear of what I want in my life.

I know that I can always give the gift of prayer and “The Science of Mind” has guided me to affirm the good not just for me but for everyone I pray for. Affirmative Prayer always allows me to find God in whatever situation I face.

Fran Ulm R.Sc.P

Fran UlmIt is my pleasure to travel with you, the seeker – the one who has a sense there is something far greater than the visible.  This is the perfect time in our evolution to explore that which isn’t seen, yet is fully present in all of life. It is my honor to journey with you as we uncover old, negative beliefs that cease to serve your best life and share in your joy as a shift is made into a transformative experience of Peace, Love, Joy, Wholeness and Harmony.  We are ALWAYS enough…let’s uncover this truth in a playful, mindful, profound and loving experience. Join with me and Las Vegas Center for Spiritual Living as you discover your amazing self!

Yvonne Valerio, R.Sc.P

Fran UlmI found the Las Vegas Center for Spiritual Living in a Google search in 2015 and it didn’t take long to know it was home. My incredible journey of discovery, inspiration and change continued through the years and I became a Licensed Practitioner in 2023. You truly don’t need to see the whole staircase…just take that first step! I just had to take that first class to see how my life could unfold with true and lasting change. In this journey I’ve uncovered and cultivated creativity and skills I didn’t even know I had and I found an ever deeper love of all people, pets and prayer!

My Vision is to serve and assist others in finding that perfect place where we live in the exhale with full trust knowing everything is truly amazing. It is my greatest pleasure and honor to walk and grow with you, wherever you are on your path! There is so much goodness and overflow ready here and now, let’s claim it together! You are my welcome guest any Sunday!

At Centers for Spiritual Living, we practice a form of affirmative prayer called “Spiritual Mind Treatment.” Affirmative Prayer, is a practical tool that aligns our thoughts with all-good. Affirmative Prayer is a powerful process that shifts our consciousness so that we are open and available to accept the good that is already present in our life.

How we Pray

Affirmative Prayer is a prayer that declares a spiritual Truth.  It is a recognition of Spirit’s Omniscience, Omnipotence, and Omnipresence, and a realization of humanity’s unity with Spirit. Affirmative Prayer is a powerful method for setting the Creative Process into motion. It is a direct, focused, and organized method using five steps to get to your desired outcome:

Recognition (God Is All There Is)
Unification (I Am One with God)
Realization (Speaking Your Desired Good)
Thanksgiving (Grateful Acceptance) and
Release (Let Go, Let God)
