Hello and welcome! Abundant Life Spiritual Center is a dynamic spiritual community with a focus on awakening those who walk through our doors to the divine within and inspiring them to live confidently, passionately and powerfully. Together we learn how to Live Fearlessly and Love Outrageously because life is meant to be filled with joy and lived with ease as a positive experience, not a struggle. We named ourselves Abundant Life because we know that the Abundant Life - a life of wholeness and authentic self-expression, purpose, creativity and love - is the divine birthright of everyone and we want to support your living it.

By Rev. Carol
Every July 4th we are reminded of the vision that our country’s founders had for this nation – a land of the free. The United States is an experiment in self-governance. Self-governance and Freedom are Divine ideas plucked out of the realm of Infinite Possibilities and put in place here in our immediate world. While we may have been sloppy at fully implementing freedom for all, we are blessed by its ideals. And as citizens we have the choice to embrace it or lose it. Our experiment will only truly work if we the people educate ourselves, stay fully informed and also commit ourselves to evolving our consciousness ever higher.
Dive deep into the cause of all suffering, and use inquiry to identify and question the thoughts at the root of it all. This life-changing class is led by Paul Zavagno at the Patty Turner Center on Wednesdays, August 5, 12, 19 & 26 from 10 am to noon. In this four week workshop you will learn the simple and profound four questions and turnarounds that open the path to peace.
