Spiritual Support

CSE’s Ministers and Interns are available for online Vedic Counseling and Spiritual Direction appointments. Our trained leaders are here to support you in deepening your spiritual practice, cultivating your intuition, and developing healthy yogic lifestyle routines within a context of spiritual care that honors and serves the divine wholeness present in every soul. Spiritual Direction and Vedic Counseling sessions are not psychological or therapeutic counseling. They are a spiritually based approach that draws upon the practical methods of healthy, fulfilled living found in the Kriya Yoga tradition. Online sessions generally last for 30 minutes and are provided on a donation basis.
