Meet the East Bay Spiritual Practitioners

The role of the Licensed Spiritual Practitioner is to help individuals make changes in their lives by making changes in their consciousness. The fundamental tool of the practitioner is a form of affirmative prayer called Spiritual Mind Treatment. Practitioners are specifically trained to shift consciousness on behalf of and for the individual through the use of this tool.

The effectiveness of Spiritual Mind Treatment is based on the fundamental law of the Universe that all true and lasting change takes place as a result of a shift in consciousness. A Practitioner facilitates this shift by assisting the individual in adopting new beliefs, perspectives, and attitudes. As beliefs, perspectives, and attitudes change, new conditions and situations are naturally attracted into the individual’s life.
