"We are all longing to go home to some place we have never been — a place half-remembered and half-envisioned we can only catch glimpses of from time to time. Community. Somewhere, there are people to whom we can speak with passion without having the words catch in our throats. Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power. Community means strength that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done. Arms to hold us when we falter. A circle of healing. A circle of friends. Someplace where we can be free." 





We gather to celebrate life, to minister to one another, to shape a community that hears all our voices, honors each search for meaning, and reaches out to enrich the world with caring and love. All are welcome in our community.









"We may stumble, but always there is that Eternal Voice, forever whispering within our ear, that thing which causes the eternal quest, that thing which forever sings and sings."

— Dr. Ernest Holmes







"There is almost a sensual longing for communion with others who have a large vision. The immense
 fulfillment of the friendship between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality impossible to describe."
----- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

CCL is a family community in every sense of the word. Here you are welcome exactly as you are, no matter your gender, color, sexual orientation, disability, age, size or level of sobriety. You will find acceptance without judgment whether you are celebrating a success, questioning a life circumstance or grieving a loss.

It is our intention that as you enter our doors, you find a sense of peace and belonging…that almost indefinable experience of feeling like you’ve “come home".

Please join us as we grow. Led by Rev. Iris Sauber, we offer  various opportunities to consciously evolve and awaken to your spiritual magnificence and be part of a family of like-minded people,  creating a world that works for everyone. Our work is helping to build the movement of awake, committed, engaged people-- an invitation we extend to everyone.

There is a "golden thread", a harmony of all major religions and spiritual philosophies found at the core. We refer to this mystical core as the Ageless Wisdom, the Perennial Philosophy, or the Eternal Way. These spiritual principles are the cornerstone of our teachings at the Center.


Our Organization was featured in a recent NEWSWEEK Magazine:





              Rev. Iris Sauber

I’m so grateful you are taking the time to visit the Center for Conscious Living's website.

But, before you start exploring, think about a spiritual place you’d like to visit that welcomes people of all races, religions, sexual orientations and social backgrounds in dignity and love--a place where they believe in diversity and provide a multitude of opportunities for anyone, in any stage of life, to grow spiritually.

Imagine a place that communicates and celebrates the positive aspects of humankind, the world around us, and our relationship to the Power Within.

What would it be like to be part of a community that is practical and provides tangible steps and programs for individuals and families to change and apply scientific spiritual principles in their lives immediately?

What if you could find a place that is alive and exciting on Sundays – one that leaves you feeling wonderful and optimistic about yourself and your life?

Well, look no further. You’ve found your home and it’s waiting for YOU!

I hope you will allow us to support you wherever you are on your path with all that is available through our dynamic and growing community.

Remember: It’s different here. We’re not here to judge. We’re here to give you scientifically proven spiritual tools to transform your life and to make the world a better place.

If you are looking for a warm, dynamic, loving community of like-minded people, we encourage you to visit Center for Conscious Living and claim the life your soul is seeking.
