Our Spiritual Director, Rev. Jennifer Berkeley has studied New Thought and Ancient Wisdom for more than 25 years. She lives by Principle and practices what she preaches. She grew up in The Bronx, NY and moved to Los Angeles in her early twenties. There she began investigating new ways of thinking and practical spirituality. She was trained at Agape International Center with Michael Bernard Beckwith and Nirvanna Reginald Gayle. Upon returning to the East Coast she began her ministerial training at Center for Spiritual Living in Morristown, NJ. After serving in Morristown for 4 years as the staff minister she began her own work in South Orange, New Jersey where she lives with her husband and two dogs. She has been the Spiritual Director at Rockland CSL since 2013.

We are blessed with four amazing Licensed Practitioners, Michelle Ruiz, Melissa Moorer-Nobles,Sylvia Romero and Stacey LaSocco.
Michelle (top left) serves as a remote practitioner from Texas. She is the practitioner to the Board and responsible for handling all online and written prayer requests from members and friends of Rockland CSL. With her not-for-profit experience, Michelle also works to research the possibility of grant procurement.
Melissa (top right) is one of our resident practitioners and can be seen most Sundays in service at our celebration, teaching classes and workshops as well as supporting the many events that take place at the Center. She also conducts a quarterly gathering SIP (Spirit in Practice) where she combines Principle (Truth) with practical tools for daily use.
Sylvia (bottom left) joined the practitioner core in December 2016. She is eagerly taking on a weekly presence at the Center and will focus on bringing a vital Visioining Practice and Core to the Center.
Stacey (bottom right) is the latest addition to our Practitioner Core. She will be serving at the Center sharing her love for the teaching in a variety of ways including providing administraive support and working with Rev. Jennifer on special projects. She is also serving Asbury CSL in an outreach capacity by leading visioning once per month for this newly forming Center.
All are available on phone or in person for Spiritual Mind Treatment. Each practitioner sets their own fee.
Our community is friendly, fun loving, supportive and interdependent. We come together on Sunday, for classes and workshops and other events that take place inside and outside the Center. It is not unusual for you to find us at a local street fair, fundraising for a local organization or kayaking on the Hudson River. We are a group of diverse individuals that beleives there is One Mind and One Source. We honor the Truth of each other and support that truth in play and praise.
