Senior Minister

Rev. Michael Curcuru

Rev. Michael Curcuru is an author, speaker, workshop creator/presenter, licensed minister with Centers for Spiritual Living, having completed ministerial studies with Holmes Institute of Consciousness, and Centers for Spiritual Living. Michael provides Spiritual Guidance and Support through use of affirmative prayer.

Rev. Michael is an eight-year member of the Center for Spiritual Living Palm Desert, California, where he serves in leadership with “Rainbow Alliance,” which serves the LGBTQ community. His spiritual vision is that of “Worlds Beyond Borders, Hearts Beyond Boundaries, Lives Beyond Limits.”

He travels broadly giving spiritual talks based on the unity of all life. He teaches classes based on his book “HeartLight – Illusion to Illumination – Honoring Soul Whispers Within.” His experiential workshops “From Me 2 We 2 One” and “Creating from Oneness” empower insightful shifts in one’s perspective.


The word “Practitioner” may be new to you, and it simply means that these designated people are high-level “practicers” of the Science of Mind principles. A Practitioner works to assist you in solving problems and experiencing greater good in your life. They work to help you understand your challenge and its cause, and then, through Affirmative Prayer, the spiritual laws are set in motion to resolve your issue.
