2014 Spiritual Living, Conscious Awakening Conference
Friday, August 22nd - Sunday, August 24th

The Spiritual Living Conscious Awakening Conference is a three day experience designed to give you the tools to change your thinking and change your life, to live the life of your dreams, a life of purpose and fulfillment.

When we connect with the divine within ourselves, the true purpose of our journey to this physical realm becomes clear and unfolds. We often unconsciously resist this alignment with the Divine/Source/Spirit. This is why, even when we embrace the Truth at a conscious level, we keep repeating our old patterns. A multitude of possibilities - abundance, greater intimacy, perfect health and more - are always available for us to accept into our lives.

Forgiving ourselves and others is a powerful and immediate way to embrace the true purpose of our journey here.

In this three day program we will offer opportunities to embrace practices that open you to true peace and happiness.

Day 1 One Life: Inspiration

Awaken to your divine nature through understanding universal spiritual principles as the creative process and the Law of Attraction.

Day 2 One Power: Release

Give yourself the gift of Forgiveness. Uncover what may be preventing you from allowing the principles to work in your life.

Day 3 One World: Creation

Apply spiritual principles to uncover your gift and live a life in alignment with purpose. Experience the Oneness that unites us as the One Human Family.



We are pleased and grateful to announce that we once again have a team of distinguished international speakers, musicians and workshop presenters for you. They individually bring their own unique wisdom and powerful energy to make this event an experience of empowerment, enjoyment and transformation.

  • Pierre Pradervand

    How can a blessing change the world? According to Pierre Pradervand, making the conscious choice to bless every person or being around you can truly make a world of difference in yourself and in others. Pierre teaches that the practice of blessing has the power to create more than just a renewed perspective. It unleashes tangible benefits throughout your entire life - through your daily interactions, your life-long relationships, and in the way you approach your place in the world. A powerfully simple way of perceiving and shaping our surroundings, blessings can reflect the unconditional love and acceptance that is necessary for world - and inner - peace.

    Pierre considers himself a citizen of the world. He has lived, worked and travelled in over 40 countries, including 11 years in African Moslem countries. He has worked for decades in personal development and social justice and has published four books. He currently lives in his home country, Switzerland, where he runs his own workshops on personal development, spirituality and lifestyle changes. Pierre speaks on how to live a more enriched and contented life. In his workshops, he provides personal development tools that empower everyone to find and strengthen their internal anchors.

    Committed to a non-dual vision of life, Pierre is a lively communicator who enjoys speaking from the heart in stories and metaphors. We are privileged to welcome him as a Lead Speaker at the 2014 Conference.

  • Ester Nicholson

    Twenty-five years ago, when Ester Nicholson looked in the mirror, she saw a broken young woman-a teenaged mom hopelessly addicted to crack, food, abusive relationships, anything to bury her shame and self-hatred. Today, Ester is an acclaimed healer with a breakthrough spiritual approach to the 12-Step recovery process that's proven more effective because of its integration with empowering divinity-within principals.

    With her book Soul Recovery - 12 Keys to Healing Addiction (Agape Media/Hay House) she tells her profoundly inspiring story and systematically reveals the spiritually transforming process she used to liberate herself from crippling addiction. "Our day–to–day dealings are grounded in our root beliefs, and those beliefs are predicated on what I call 'core wounds,'" Ester explains. "The more we can heal those core wounds, the more we can experience wholeness and live a life of purpose and strength."

    Ester maintains an impressively expansive career. She is an Agape-licensed, spiritual therapist who for 17 years has studied under Michael Bernard Beckwith, founder of the Agape International Spiritual Center, who is probably most famous for his appearances on Oprah and as a featured "teacher" in the popular book and motion picture, The Secret. She's a motivational speaker who brings her personal experience of 25 years of sobriety coupled with a deep understanding of spiritual practices to audiences around the world. In this capacity, she facilitates workshops and gives inspirational keynote addresses to institutions, companies and organizations, incorporating concepts from the Soul Recovery process she developed.

    Ester is also a gifted vocalist who's completed two world tours with Rod Stewart and Bette Midler, performed multiple times at Madison Square Garden, appeared on Oprah, Good Morning America, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and has released her own critically-acclaimed albums of soul-nurturing music.

  • Rev. Dr. Kenn Gordon
    Spiritual Leader, Centers for Spiritual Living™

As Spiritual Leader, it is his goal to help awaken humanity in order to create a world that works for everyone. Toward this goal, Dr. Kenn travels the world speaking with everyone from government and religious leaders to individual seekers about ageless spiritual principles that have been passed down through millennia and synthesized in the teachings of Science of Mind by its founder, Ernest Holmes. He also writes a weekly blog for, a leading Web site on religion that includes some of the most well-known and widely read bloggers and columnists of religion in the world.

    In 2009, Dr. Gordon spoke at the Parliament of World Religions in Melbourne, Australia, along with the Dalai Lama and former U.S. President Jimmy Carter. In the same year, his book, Mind & Manifestation, was published. He also contributes regularly to Science of Mind and Creative Thought magazines, both published by Centers for Spiritual Living.

  • Michael Gott

    A brilliant speaker and talented musician, Michael has been with us every year of this event. His wisdom has a rich depth and his heart is beautifully open. We are delighted to have him with us once again to share his talent and heart with us.

    As singer/pianist/songwriter Michael Gott is a performer you won't soon forget. With his background in disparate musical disciplines such as gospel, pop, opera, musical theater, classical piano and jazz, Michael has developed a unique performance style that is exciting, engaging and heartfelt. He is equally memorable as a speaker and teacher who pours his heart and soul into every word he speaks. He has deep wisdom, gained from a diverse life experience. Michael is truly an original.

    Since 2010, Michael Gott has been the assistant minister and choir director at Unity of Houston in Texas. Michael travels throughout North America and Europe, singing and speaking at conferences and spiritual centres. In recent years, he has shared the stage with internationally known personalities such as Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson, Mary Morrissey and others.

    Michael's work, whether his music or his teaching, brings people together. Michael says about his work, "Nothing is more inspiring to me than to see someone step out of a limiting idea and into possibility. This is 'the discovery and delivery of the authentic self' as Rumi puts it. When we do this work together, that is the essence of spiritual community."

  • Erika Luckett and Lisa Ferraro

    As a child, Lisa heard vibrations emanating from flowers and trees, symphonies ringing from the garden. She sang what she heard and developed a dynamic range that allowed her to interpret the music of the world. This soulful awareness comes through her voice whether inspiring congregations, leading sizzling dance bands or melting audiences with stirring interpretations of jazz standards. Her voice and presence command attention and exude the sublime.

    Erika was steeped in the pulse of the planet with her transcontinental upbringing. Born in Mexico and raised in Venezuela and Brazil, she listened to the dance of her surroundings: the sambas and rancheras swaying through the streets, the songs of frogs in the trees. Each element found translation into her guitar and voice. Her innovative guitar playing emerged from the desire to create an orchestra of sound from only six strings.

    These two extraordinarily talented artists are far more than the sum of their parts and the music they create offers a feast of Sonic Nourishment. Their combined voices blend so seamlessly we forget there are two of them and the multi-faceted guitar playing is so versatile that one instrument becomes a funk band or a trio of flamenco playing gypsies.

    Nicknamed by admirers, "The Ambassadors of Kindness", Lisa and Erika ignite and uplift audiences around the globe. One person has commented about their performance: "I was so inspired and moved by the 'experience' of the music - the way they are so in it, feeling each and every note, so much passion expressed, so satisfying to witness how they tap into the source of creation and channel it through with such power and grace. Their voices and energies combined create a force field of angelic light." And, Lisa and Erika deliver inspiration through more than just their music. They bring their creative talent, rich life experience, and spiritual maturity together in talks and workshops.

New Thought has been around for quite some time. The standard history goes back to Phineas Quimby, but the Spiral Dynamics New Thought History traces the ideas of New Thought back to Anne Hutchinson who in 1638 taught that: we are not converted to Christ but awaken to the truth of our present Unity with God; all people are reflections of the Divine and "being a woman is a gift not a curse".

New Thought support around the globe

"The truth, once announced,
has the power not only to renew but to extend itself.
New Thought is universal in its ideals
and therefore should be universal in its appeal
Under the guidance of the spirit,
it should grow in good works
until it embraces many lands
and eventually the whole world."

--Mr. James A. Edgerton on New Thought Day , August 23, 1915
