Linda Villegas Bremer, RScP

In 1980, Linda took her first Science of  Mind Class. Now she gratefully serves our community as a licensed practitioner. One of her joys is preparing the facilitation guides for our Sacred Circles. Having grown up in a Hispanic community in a border town at the southernmost tip of Texas, Linda is bilingual. This has helped her serve by teaching classes in Spanish on topics such as Leadership and Ethics for Centros Para La Vida Espiritual – Mexico. (Centers for Spiritual Living – Mexico) Linda feels that because of her Mexican heritage, she has been blessed with a great sense of mysticism. She also has degrees in chemistry and mathematics as well as a Master’s Degree in Financial Management. She has worked as a technology consultant, project manager, and consultant in strategic planning. In her “spare time,” she really enjoys writing and has self-published a book entitled Soul Reflections. Contact:  lindavillegasbremer@cslolympia.org

Sandy Dell, RScP

Sandy has known, on some level, since she was a child that she had a special spiritual path to follow. Growing up as a Catholic, her first thought was becoming a nun, but as a teenager, she decided to explore many other religious traditions and ended up as a “born-again” Christian. Years later, becoming disillusioned with the Bible thumpers often associated with fundamental Christianity and having a failed marriage within the movement, she left it all behind. It was then that she discovered New Thought principles that made sense to her. She joined a local Center for Spiritual Living, jumped right into classes and became a licensed practitioner in the summer of 2016. During and after this time, she became Director for the local CSL before going out on her own as an Outreach Practitioner. Sandy currently lives in rural Idaho with her husband, where she is self-employed running several internet-based businesses. Her current projects consist of two practitioner-based businesses using all her skills:  Spiritual Tools for Hungry Souls and Hungry Souls Manifestation Formula. Contact: sandydell@cslolympia.org

Susan Einhorn, RScP

Susan traveled a deep and winding path to God, beginning in her childhood living on a reservation. Her early lessons of seeing Spirit in nature and the experience of tribal traditions are still a strong influence on her today. She has studied archetypes with Caroline Myss, healing modalities at the Deepak Chopra Institute, and is an initiate of Peruvian shamanism. In Religious Science, Susan found “a faith that has faith in me.” She provides spiritual counseling as a practitioner at the Center and in private practice. She loves teaching Religious Science classes and writes spiritual articles for a local news publication. Susan’s passion is to serve as a divine channel to aid and empower others in the clearing of dysfunctional thought patterns, emotional wounds, traumas, and life obstructing beliefs. She bridges mind, body, and spiritual healing modalities as a counselor and alchemical hypnotherapist in her private practice. Contact: susaneinhorn@cslolympia.org

Buffie Finkel, RScP

Buffie’s spiritual journey got jump-started in 1987 when she discovered Louise Hay’s little book “Heal Your Body.” The idea that our beliefs and feelings about ourselves and the world around us could send us messages through our bodies was novel, yet rang completely true to her.  Buffie’s path continued slowly and gently, with marriages, children, divorces, and moves, but inevitably progressed up the growth spiral.  In 2007, after years of recovery, therapy, and determined self-discovery, a friend introduced her to the Tacoma Science of Mind church, and she was delighted to find that here was an existing spiritual philosophy that reflected what she already knew to be true!  Shortly after this, the Center for Spiritual Awakening of Olympia attracted her notice and she walked in the door, only to find several old friends already there!  She has been an active member of this church, now called the Center for Spiritual Living Olympia, ever since.  Buffie believes strongly in the power of community, as a place to grow and both get and give support.  The flow of Spirit through the consciousness of committed people is uplifting and inspiring.  Buffie finds great joy in the study of the Science of Mind, and all New Thought as well, and after several years of classes, heeded the call to become a Practitioner.  Buffie loves to pray with people, knowing the Truth as Love and Wholeness.

Sylvia Schroeder, RScP

Having had a mystical experience when she was just two, Sylvia knew and sensed there was an eternal spirit living inside of her. The journey to Science of Mind was a long and winding path that began whilst listening to Hay House Radio in 2004. By 2006, she’d found her way to Mile Hi Church in Colorado through her Al-Anon Group. It wasn’t until 2012 that she fully and wholly stepped into the community by volunteering as a Sunday School Teacher and with the Make-A-Difference Team, where she led the Giving Tree project for five years. It was this same year she took her first class and attended her first meditation retreat, which awakened her even further, leading her down the path of becoming a Prayer Practitioner in 2017. While not engaging with the CSL Oly and Mile Hi communities, she works full-time as a National Marketing Manager for a professional services engineering firm and is involved in SMPS, a professional services organization. In her fun time, she loves to read, paint, photograph, sew, cook….anything that feeds her creativity and heart! Sylvia is so very grateful to have found the Science of Mind principles and the tools it has given her to live a more loving, conscious, and joyous life. She loves holding consciousness and praying with people, knowing their highest Truth – that we are all spiritual beings having a human experience and we co-create with Spirit our lives.
