Purpose & Mission
The Center for Spiritual Living Palm Desert Prayer Ministry is comprised of dedicated individuals who have committed themselves to a way of life that is cultivated in a daily spiritual practice of affirmative prayer, meditation and compassionate service. They continually affirm that there is oneness in all life. This is their mission and calling. A practitioner guides an individual in exploring spiritual principles and in knowing only wholeness.
We know that with God all things are possible. Therefore, whatever the problem, there is always an answer. When a problem defies our imagination, when we cannot see what went wrong, when we are willing to be healed of that within us which brought the situation about, a Practitioner can help. A Practitioner uses his/her own mind to get clear about you and your desire, so that the One Mind in which we all live and move and have our being, will work positively in your life.
One Minute Miracles
One Minute Miracles directly after the 9 AM and 11 AM service, in the OM Room, where a practitioner will meet with you one-on-one. Prayer Request Forms are also available in the Sanctuary’s Prayer Request Box, or in the foyer, so whether or not the person attends the service, each prayer request will be honored.
Our Prayer Practitioners
Speak with one of our Prayer Practitioners if you are in need of inspiration, celebration of a major event in your life and/or healing in any area: financial, relational, health or career. You are God’s wonderous gift. Let our Prayer Practitioners remind you of that!
Center for Spiritual Living Palm Desert Prayer Practitioners support our spiritual community in a variety of ways:
- Prayer support before and after Sunday Services
- Responding to your written, email and phone prayer requests
All of the above services are provided as a gift to our spiritual community.
Prayer Practitioners are also available for individual spiritual support sessions on a fee basis. A session with a Prayer Practitioner provides a safe, nurturing environment for you to explore your spiritual practices and current beliefs that you would like to change. You are provided with the opportunity to co-create a “new” thought in your life that allows you to change your thinking and change your life!
No one is ever denied treatment for inability to pay.
We are here for you!
We believe “with God, all things are possible.”

We are here to support you in your prayer life. Please tell us specifically how we may be of service.
Personal Prayer Request
Prayer Requests are held in the strictest confidence.
We believe in the power of affirmative prayer.
Prayer Practitioners are licensed spiritual coaches who use affirmative prayer to support people in connecting themselves to the Power, Presence, and Good of God within. Practitioners teach spiritual principles and support people in using those principles to change their lives for the better, while knowing that Divine Love is present and always working in all lives.
Many people call upon a Practitioner only in times of stress, while others work with their Practitioner regularly to continue to grow in spiritual understanding. They are licensed by the Centers for Spiritual Living and are available for appointments on a fee for service basis.

Spirit works beautifully through all these dedicated ministers who are here to assist with so many human challenges. Get to know them, as they are here to serve our congregation, provide comfort and lift our consciousness.
Purpose & Mission
We compassionately provide caring support and spiritual comfort to congregants who are experiencing any of life’s transitions and the familiar trials that characterize daily life. It is a ministry of presence, which is centered in caring acceptance, a non-judgmental stance and physical and emotional availability. It is focused on healing, guiding, supporting, reconciling, nurturing, liberating and empowering people in whatever situation they find themselves.
Our Pastoral Care (Chaplain) Ministers and Practitioners provide immensely important services for our spiritual community. Dale Olansky, RScP, Gail Morton, RScP and Rev. Ruthann Banner make hospital and convalescent home visits to those desiring spiritual support. Whenever you or a loved one may have such a need, be sure to contact the Center office; also, remember to register your religious preference (“Science of Mind – Palm Desert”) upon entering a hospital, so our Chaplains may easily find you. They bring the Presence of Love into every room, assisting greatly in the healing process. These Chaplains also offer annual classes on how to be comfortable and effective when you make visits to your family and friends during an illness or medical procedure. Additionally, Rev. Ruthann Banner facilitates the monthly Grief Group bereavement support group.
If you, a loved one, or a friend would like spiritual support during a time of challenge, please contact Center for Spiritual Living Palm Desert’s Pastoral Team. The Pastoral Team’s “Soul” purpose is to be of sacred service by visiting you in person at the hospital or care facility or being available to speak with you over the phone, to lovingly listen and provide prayer. All requests and conversations are held in sacred confidentiality by the Pastoral Team.
Center for Spiritual Living Palm Desert’s Pastoral Team is always there for our spiritual community. If you or someone you know needs compassionate support, please contact the Pastoral Team.
