Hi there.  I wanted to be sure you saw our previous email inviting you to SoulCare 2020, a virtual retreat that takes place tomorrow. 

Please accept my personal invitation to join us NOW. Register before midnight tonight and pay whatever you can.  That's right, even $1 for the 8 hour retreat and ongoing membership in the SoulCare private community forum where you can stay connected to your fellow retreaters.  So don't let money get in the way of caring for your soul. 

We're all needing a few more tools in our toolbox these days.  2020 has been really rough for a lot of people.  The ABQ CSL SoulCare Team is answering that suffering (including our own!) with some community, some comfort, and some tools for staying afloat, moving forward, thriving. I wanted you to have a chance to be there with us.  

I love you so much.

What You Will Gain

Sacred Writing

Loving attention to our humanness through writing or any art form opens us to our Divinity and the wisdom we carry within.

Declaring our Divine nature and realizing in our bones that we are the power and the presence of the One leaves us grounded, centered and ready for anything life throws our way.

Moving Meditation
Practicing and constantly learning to move from the center of your being, Tai Chi Chih bridges body, mind, and soul.


Herbs + Art + Ritual

Participate in sacred ceremony for the purpose of holding each other's intentions in the highest light.

Loving Meditation

Grounding ourselves into the loving essence at the center of our being is a most powerful gift to ourselves.


Community Connection

In this time of social distance come together with other powerful beings ready to connect and deepen in practice and Love.


YOU are the greatest force in the universe!


Rev. Amani Malaika, Senior Minister @ABQ CSL
My fascination with spiritual traditions, the soul, and life’s mysteries has been life long. In my own seeking and studies I have become a true believer in the divine nature of all human beings.

I am a modern mystic drawing from the truths of many faith traditions. I am deeply inspired by the new thought movement and ever conjuring inventive ways to live these universal truths in our current world.

Vanessa Owen
I have been a member of ABQCSL for almost 3 years. I currently serve on Leadership Council and a few other groups as well. I became interested in learning about natural medicine and herbs 5 years ago. I pursued my interest and attended UNM's Continuing Education program in Clinical Herbalism over 2 years and earned 3 certificates. Herbal medicine gave me a way to help others in a way that really spoke to me. Using the earth's natural life as a method to help treat and prevent ailments is amazing! It gives us a connection to the Earth and our ancestors that has survived for hundreds of years. I am honored to be a part of this class and share this time with you!

Madi Suarez, RScP
I grew up in the Los Angeles area of California and moved to NM in March of 2005. I attended the ABQ Center for Spiritual Living starting in 2010 after reading "The Secret" because I wanted to meet other people and talk about manifesting! I stuck around for a few years and then left. I came back in October of 2017 and got very involved. I took some classes and then started Practitioner studies in September of 2018. I became a licensed Practitioner in July 2020. I live in the northeast area of Albuquerque with my 9 year old dog, Robin.

Paul is devoted to expanding everyone’s awareness of their own wholeness and perfection, through prayer, meditation, Practitioner sessions, and teaching.

Christa Keller, RScP
Tai Chi Chih is way of life, practicing and constantly learning to move from the center of your being. Chi energy is the Vital Life Force bridging Mind, Body and Soul. This practice balances the Chi that brings a sense of well-being and serenity amidst activity. Tai Chi Chih has been the most steadfast and reliable Spiritual Practice in my life. I am inspired to share this practice with you. It is accessible to people of all abilities, ages and challenges.

I am an accredited Tai Chi Chih teacher and former President of the Tai Chi Chih Association serving members Internationally. I have been teaching for the last 35 years. I have had the honor of studying and practicing with the originator, Justin Stone. I am have taught in several environments including corporate businesses in down town San Francisco, St. Mary’s Hospital in San Francisco, kindergarten children and worked with folks and their families at a drug rehab program in Oakland. I have been teaching a public class here in Albuquerque for the last 11 years.

Let’s move together to bring balance to our lives during this challenging time. I look forward to our time together!

Mary Deaguero, RScP
Mary Deaguero is a licensed Religious practitioner.

She has used writing tools all of her life to explore experiences and feelings and to become aware of how she is reacting and responding to events in her life. Writing has helped her identify feelings and emotions and in that writing new perspectives emerge with more freedom of choice.

Writing gives pause to appreciate our humanness and that is the place of sacredness. All of our experiences are sacred. Loving attention to our humanness through writing or any art form opens us to our Divinity and the wisdom we carry within.

Bonnie Chavez, RScP

I own my own consulting business that helps social profit organizations and other small businesses. I love helping the Albuquerque Center for Spiritual Living and excited to participate.
