Cris Anderson, RScP 828-280-8609

Cris Anderson, RScP 828.280.8609I was born in Raleigh NC and moved away as a child. After traveling for many years I felt as though I was running away from something. In 2006 I found my way back to NC settling in Asheville where I found my Spiritual home and the teachings of Science of Mind. I no longer feel the need to run. I have been a member of Center for Spiritual Living Asheville since 2007 and a Licensed Practitioner since 2012. As a Practitioner of CSL Asheville I am open to serve my community and assist you in your journey.

Deborah Belcher, RScP 828-230-7343

d_belcherIn Gratitude, I know who I am, so I know who you are because we are all the One. I grew up in a repressive traditional religion, and from a young age longed for something more. At 20 I discovered Norman Vincent Peale, then Edgar Cayce, Yoga, Psychological Counseling, Rebirthing, Eastern Philosophies, Alice Bailey’s work and more along the way. I delighted in finding the same Truth everywhere! My path has been expanding to be/do/have whatever I choose, even that which once seemed impossible, as well as supporting others who choose the same. In December 2001 I found CSL Asheville - a community practicing unconditional love and standing on the Truth I had studied on my own for decades! I was licensed as a Practitioner in August 2008. I love and am dedicated to the daily, moment-to-moment practice of opening my heart and mind to the Love and Law of this teaching. I look forward to connecting with you!

Carol Biro, RScP 828-681-0969

c_biroI have enjoyed being a Practitioner for 10 years. I believe that metaphysical awareness began in my youth in my playground, the woods and fields of Minnesota. I developed an inner sense of wonder and adventure in nature. In my twenties I lived in many states, and Europe, hiking, biking, skiing, and exploring. When I attended Massage School in my late 20’s, exploration into the wonder of my mind and inner being began to fascinate me and soon became my passion. I continue to study energy healing, metaphysics, meditation and yoga. I received my BA in Psychology and Wellness Education from Antioch University in Seattle. I am very blessed with my marriage of 30 years to Brian. We have two beautiful adult daughters. I am so honored to be a student of Science of Mind and I love assisting clients, in the revelation of their loving and beautiful truth.

Davon Embler, RScP 828-778-8769

d_emblerGrowing up I always had a sense that there was something out there and it was just waiting for me to discover it. I moved to Asheville in 1993 and met Barbara and John Waterhouse within a few months. In January 1995 they decided to start the Center for Creative Living. I showed up to that very first service and from that point forward my life has changed immensely. This teaching immediately resonated in me. Through the ups and downs of spiritual growth, being grateful for everything I’ve discovered my greatest treasure, my oneness with all there is. I receive great joy in knowing the truth for others, for holding them up in the loving light of Spirit. With much gratitude Spirit has blessed me with my life partner and husband, Rodney, a beautiful home, loving friends and a creative career. I love the truth that I am Spirit and as such I can have, be and do it all. And so it is!

Sherri Free, RScP 828-712-1465

s_freeI was born and reared, here in the mountains of Western North Carolina, Asheville. These mountains are some of the oldest in the world and have created in their midst, a region considered to be a spiritual Mecca for people, worldwide. It was in this high energy my spiritual awareness was nurtured.  I began my journey at the Center for Spiritual Living during the Summer Prosperity Class. I continued classes as I experienced a rekindling of my Spirit and incredible spiritual growth.  I remembered, I am the Life of God expressing; as such, I create the effects of my life.  I create that upon which I place my attention.  I have such a love for this teaching, John, Barbara and the members of our community, it is only natural I share of myself as a Licensed Practitioner.  As you create new conditions for your life, I would be delighted to treat for you using the power of my knowing, on your behalf.

Katherine Greysen, RScP 775-354-6091


Hello! I am originally from MN, however, I have lived in many cities and have loved every one of them! I have included Science of Mind teaching in my spiritual practices for almost 20 years and the maxim which stands out for me most is from Judge Thomas Troward, “Principle is not bound by precedent.”  If this statement was not true, I would not be here in Asheville, and I would not be a Practitioner!  I feel blessed and grateful for the presence of CSL-Asheville in my life and am excited about being in service to give back to the communities who have given so much to me.

Chuck Hunner, RScP 828-216-1422

SONY DSCEver since I was a little tyke, I understood I was made of God-Stuff and not being ‘done-to’. I knew that God was in me, flowing through me, living as me and that it was up to me to choose my way of life. I was constantly distracted by girls, money, and achievement. I always found my way back to the idea that I am here to express as Spirit, as Good. In 1999, I began to make labyrinths. Walking labyrinths allowed me to think calmly. This simple meditative technique proved to me that Spirit is in me and around me everywhere I can perceive! When my wife and I joined the Center for Creative Living in Winter 2003, and knew we’d found our spiritual home. My Practitioner training gives me the opportunity to know the Truth for everyone around me. I love sharing my positive perspective. I’m eager to serve this community with all I’ve learned. (Click here to see Spiritual Mind Treatment)

Selena Sutton–Hilton, RScP 828-551-6020

selena-hutton-hilton-headshotThe first time I experienced a Spiritual Mind Treatment I was sold, sold on Science of Mind, I knew clearly in those moments that my thoughts and words create who I am and what I have. I heard clearly the words spoken and they were for me. Science of Mind, the teaching, the love, the acceptance I experienced at CSL Asheville were as if I had my divine date with destiny...it has been my honor to be a Licensed Practitioner in this community, to know clearly who I am, and to know the truth for all who seek hope, help and inspiration ! I am experiencing wealth, vibrant health, loving relationships and work that serves the world...happiness and joy ! As a Divine being I Am the Master of my Destiny...and so it is!

Carol Lani Rose, RScP 828-891-8628

carollani_headhsot_newMany years ago, I moved from Dallas, Texas to western North Carolina...now, thanks to the momentum of applying Religious Science teachings (Practitioner since 2005) and focusing on what I want more of, I live primarily in Happiness, and delight in choosing and experiencing the Truth of that reality.  In 2009, I founded (and co-facilitate) the monthly Visioning Circle for CSL-Avl and, in 2014,  founded a weekly Abraham-Hicks Listening Circle at our Center. Conceived in Hawaii, my birth name, Carol Lani, means Song of Heaven...to me, Heaven is Love, and to Love is to be happy with. My purpose is to bring Heaven to Earth by being happy with. I appreciate resonating with the wonder that we all are and delight in divine co-creating with you, celebrating the power in realizing, honoring and expressing the highest creations of our hearts. (Click here to see Spiritual Mind Treatment)

Ron LaPointe, RScP 828-505-5044


I've been a licensed Science of Mind practitioner for 15 years.  Practitioners practice knowing the Presence of Spirit(God) in every aspect of life.  This Presence is the energy that fuels all of creation; and, the teachings in Science of Mind are based on this knowing-- that there is, and has always been, ONE activity happening throughout time.  This energy/ force has been labeled God, Spirit, The Presence and more.  As a practitioner, I utilize what is called"spiritual mind treatment" to open, activate, and 'marinate' this creative force to heal, reveal, clarify, and uplift all who are open to receiving it.  It is this process in combination with additional spiritual practices that helps manifest a life one wants to live. 

Celeste Lauren, RScP 828-231-7638

c_laurenI Am grateful to be in service as a Practitioner of the Center for Spiritual Living, Asheville and to express this in the greater community knowing the truth that everyone is a Divine Expression of Spirit.  I love how quantum physics supports the basic principles of New Thought Spirituality which has made it more accessible to millions.  Through my years studying multiple Spiritual and healing disciplines, I have come to believe Peace and Compassion are essential for evolving a sustainable and just world that works for all people.  My daily practice, then, continues to be an intention to show up in my interactions in the world in a way that reflects how I wish to be treated.  I know that for each choice made for Love vs fear our world is closer to expressing the vision of peace and abundance for all humanity.

Nancy Miller, RScP 828-551-6920

Nancy Miller-HeadshotAs a child, I watched people’s emotions with fascination.  By 9, I knew I wanted to work with people and their emotions. I enjoyed Episcopal Sunday school yet felt there was more.  My geography teacher opened my awareness to world religions.  I explored many spiritual paths during young adulthood noticing certain Truths as thefoundation of these varying traditions. This reinforced my Knowing of Oneness.  I graduated from FSU in 1990 with a Master’s Degree in Special Education. In 1997, I discovered SOM magazine. In 2007, I found CSLA. I became a member in 2008. I was installed as a Licensed Practitioner in 2012. With support from this amazing community, in August 2011 I opened Light of Wisdom School and began living my lifelong dream of working with children and adults, supporting their understanding of Spiritual Principles and that emotions are an integral part of our internal guidance system.  (Click here to see Spiritual Mind Treatment)

Sylvia O’Neill, RScP Practitioner Emeritus 828-774-3689

s_oneillMy religious training started at age eleven, when my girlfriend invited me to come to the Congregational Church near where I lived in NY. I loved learning that "God is Love" and "do to others as you would have them to unto you." Many years went by and when I divorced my first husband I moved to Huntsville, AL with my two young children. In 1986 I was invited to join a Religious Science Study Group. I joined the church and helped to grow the Center for Spiritual Living in Huntsville, AL. Science of Mind has taught me to expect the best and stay positive. One year of classes prompted me to start my own health care business. In my second year of Religious Science, while being a greeter, I welcomed Joe O'Neill. We have been married 27 fabulous years.  I will be honored to do Spiritual Mind Treatment with you, knowing your highest and best in every area of your life.

Lisa Rowe, RScP 828-645-9155

l_roweMy meandering path of Self-discovery has been governed by an obstinate “I’d rather do it myself” and “do it my way” attitude. A Master Shapeshifter, for sure, I have played many roles and done many things this time around on planet Earth. The short list includes environmental chemist, market researcher and strategic planner; ski instructor and ski school manager; wife and widow; student and practitioner of shamanism; traveler and adventurer to 49 of the 50 states and to 5 of the 7 continents. I continue to harvest the experiences of life with wonder and awe, and to find magic and miracles every day. In 2008 my wanderings and wonderings brought me to Science of Mind. Four years later I entered into sacred service as your practitioner.  I embrace this philosophy of Oneness and look forward to seeing your unique Light and knowing the Truth with you. Namaste. (Click here to see Spiritual Mind Treatment)


Charlie Sheppard, RScP 828-669-1525

c_sheppardI was born and raised on a Southwest Oklahoma farm.  My parents were luke warm Southern Baptist.  We were poor by most people's standards, but were better off than most.  After high school, college and grad school, I went to work for Ralston Purina Company in Michigan.  A few jobs and a few cities later I began to realize that my life was not what I wanted it to be.  That started me on a spiritual journey that culminated in my entering CSL - Asheville in 2005. Many classes later I became a Licensed Practitioner (2009).  I am currently serving as Vice Chair of the Practitioner Council for the national/international CSL Organization.

Amica Venturi, RScP 828-350-7529

a_venturiI was grew up in California. When I was 16, I was honored to care for my beloved mother as she transitioned. That shaped my empathy and understanding and set the stage for a career of service. At the age of 20, I founded my first school for children and continue to teach preschool. In 2005 my sister invited me to CSL Asheville. What a great idea!!! From that day on I felt different. I was accepted for who I am, and welcomed home as a treasured part of the family. I use the Science of Mind in my daily life, my practitioner work and my work with children. And now my life works. It is so liberating to approach each interaction with the knowledge that all is well. Allow me to know with you that the Universe is for you and all you can conceive is yours now. 

Kate Rhiannon Wagner, RScP 828-712-9671


I was born and raised in a large Irish Catholic family. I was a devout Catholic until 1989 when I divorced. I began a search for spiritual meaning and psychological understanding of my life. I tried a multitude of spiritual paths. All offered some part of that which I sought, and yet I was hungry for more. In 2007 I stumbled upon my first Science of Mind Center; and so began my dream of becoming a practitioner. Through the next several years I studied at several different Centers and deepened my understanding of myself and the principles of Science of Mind. During the 8 years it took me to complete my training I overcame health and financial challenges, and I met and married my BFF, Tim Wagner. I now stand in my power as a magnificent creative spiritual being ready to serve my community with an open and caring heart.  (Click here to see Spiritual Mind Treatment)


Tim Wagner, RScP 828-712-9671


I graduated from the University of Florida, retired from the US Army after 25 years, returned to UF for 10 years, retired again, traveled full time for 2 years and for the past 12 years was a Realtor in North Carolina.  Now I am retired again and life gets better.  Coming from a foundation in the Episcopal Church, I feel Christian principles kept me on track for the good life, however, deep inside I knew that there was something more.  I had to be open and ready to receive, so “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”.  I became a student of Science of Mind in 2010 at this Center.  Embracing these teachings, I met my wife, Kate Rhiannon Wagner at my first Asilomar conference. We are both Practitioners. Loving who I am and how Law responds, I am excited and blessed to travel this path of service.

Nancy Walton, RScP 720-984-9118

nancy-walton-headshotIn my mid to late 20’s I began reading and exploring new thought and came across Science of Mind in 2007. This was a nature progression of study into knowing a greater, deeper sense of Truth. When my youngest son passed in 2008, my life changed forever. As I was broken open I was blessed to have been attending MileHi Church and to be in this teaching. I took one class after another each taking me a little closer to re-membering the Truth of who I was as a Spiritual Being. In 2011 I was ready to start practitioner training yet decided to wait and move to Asheville. Having now become a practitioner and being in a place of stepping up and choosing to know the Truth for another as others have done for me, I am aware that I have only begun the next part of the journey.

Thomas Young, RScP 828-250-0458

t_youngLife is truly a blessing. In 1972 I had a spiritual awakening, where I knew I was more than my body, mind and the conditions around me. Deeper awareness unfolded with spiritual study in several paths, meditation and divine service. In 2003 I came to the Center for Spiritual Living where I took the beginning classes then Practitioner classes I and II. I love being a Practitioner at the Center and living the Science of Mind principles. They are an integral part of my soul expression. My life changed dramatically over the years at the Center with greater prosperity, love, wisdom, more friends, a loving partner and so much more. I love doing Spiritual Mind Treatments for myself and others. I know God is all there is and we express as God. Every challenge and life event I experience is a gift to help me know the Truth.
