A Welcome Note from Our Spiritual Director, 

Reverend Kimberly Hawkins:

Dear Guest,

Welcome to the Centers for Spiritual Living. If you are looking for a positive brand of spirituality, an upbeat and inspiring Sunday celebration, empowering classes to enrich your personal path to God, and a community committed to seeing the spiritual magnificence in each person, then Center for Spiritual Living Rogue Valley might just be the spiritual home for which you’ve been searching.


When I first discovered Centers of Spiritual Living (called Church of Religious Science at the time), I found the Sunday message and music so positive and uplifting, I was frequently moved to tears throughout the service. Having previously explored several different faith traditions, including Unity, another New Thought denomination, I felt as if I had finally “come home.”  I eagerly took all the accredited classes New Vision Center in Scottsdale, Arizona offered and began to experience more faith, peace and happiness in my life than ever before.  Continuing my studies, I became a licensed prayer practitioner in 2006, and graduated from ministerial school in 2013.  Ever since following my call to ministry I have felt “on fire” and “on purpose.” 

Our Science of Mind Philosophy teaches that we are all individual expressions of the Divine. Our classes and workshops are designed to empower each person to live from the truth of their spiritual magnificence.  Because of our teaching, I have been blessed to experience the joy and freedom of releasing old limiting beliefs to live more fully each day my life’s purpose. And perhaps an even greater blessing has been the privilege and honor of assisting others on their own spiritual path, witnessing their spiritual growth and transformation.  It is a joy to be the spiritual leader of a community where we support and help empower each person on their personal journey of awakening. 

 No matter where you may be on your own spiritual journey, I invite you to come join us for our 10:30 a.m. Live Streaming Sunday Celebration on our Facebook page, Center for Spiritual Living Rogue Valley, or on YouTube under the same name. We are an open and affirming spiritual community and would love to welcome and support you in deepening your walk with the Divine.  

With love and blessings,

Rev. Kimberly

More information on Rev. Kimberly

Reverend Kimberly Hawkins is an ordained minister of Religious Science.  She graduated from ministerial school in 2013, when she received a Master’s Degree in Consciousness Studies from Holmes Institute in Encinitas, California.  For two years, she served as staff minister at Namaste Center for Spiritual Living in Long Beach, where her sister, Rev. Dr. Kristin Hawkins, was the founding minister.  In June of 2015, Rev. Kimberly accepted the position of senior minister here at Center for Spiritual Living Rogue Valley.  She says she fell in love with Southern Oregon, as it reminds her of Northeastern Pennsylvania, where she grew up.

Before becoming a minister, Kimberly had a varied professional life that well prepared her for the role of pastor.  Ten years’ experience as a TV news reporter and morning anchor helped make her the polished speaker she is today.  Her television career included writing and producing documentaries and specials for the PBS station in Phoenix, Arizona.  She was nominated for a Rocky Mountain Emmy Award for her documentary about homeless children and received an Emmy for her children’s video, aimed at reducing the alarming number of Arizona children who drown each year.

Kimberly was a Phi Beta Kappa graduate from Tufts University with a B.A. in French and English.  She later received her Master’s degree in counseling from Arizona State University. For ten years, she taught high school French and English and was a secondary school counselor.  She worked with at-risk adolescents at Phoenix Job Corps and college-bound students at Phoenix Country Day School.  As founder and owner of her Arizona LLC, Live Your Dreams, Kimberly provided adult clients with personal counseling, coaching and business training.  In 2007 she became a Religious Science practitioner and moved to Southern California.  Working for the national non-profit organization, Childhelp, she marketed and delivered child abuse prevention training to school teachers and counselors across the state.  Eventually Kimberly turned her focus entirely to spiritual counseling, becoming a popular practitioner and teacher at Namaste Center in Long Beach while she attended ministerial school.

Our reverend is the proud parent of a grown daughter and son, both happily married. She has two wonderous grand-daughters.
