Grounded in universal spirituality and infused with the heart of hospitality, our purpose is to offer classes, study groups, workshops, and retreats to provide individuals the opportunity to:

• Deepen their spiritual lives

• Learn from a variety of spiritual traditions

• Be in community with like-minded people

• Develop real-life skills for more awakened living

• Embrace their human nature and spiritual essence

• Experience a personal shift in consciousness

• Find ways to contribute to the transformation of the world

The School at Space for Conscious Living is a place where people can gather to explore the “big” questions:

Who am I?
Where did I come from?
Where am I going?
How shall I live?

Our Faculty & Staff

Our vision is that people who come to The School get to learn from many voices, not just our own. Our community is rich with talent and wisdom. We invite guest teachers to share their gifts and life experiences so we can all be students and teachers to one another.

We see our work as a sacred calling to serve and will never turn anyone away because of money. The cost of our events will be reasonably priced, and we will offer scholarships or bartering for assistance with events available whenever possible.

Marilyn Wolf

Marilyn is the founder and director of The School. Her transformative experiences since 2009 led her to retire as a psychotherapist after 28 years in order to help others in their spiritual journeys. She is an integrative energy work practitioner, a seasoned Enneagram teacher, and is certified by the Servant Leadership School of Greensboro where she also taught for five years. The “nudge from the Universe” to build The School into her practice Space for Conscious Living affirmed her gift for gathering people into community for shared exploration, learning, dialogue and support.

Marilyn’s spirituality is grounded in many faith traditions, her work in the fields of energy and consciousness, and her studies and experiences with various spiritual teachers. The overarching mission of her sacred calling is two-fold: To help others realize that, we co-create with the Divine the awakening of our true nature which is presence, freedom and love; and that when we live from this awareness, we participate in the shift in consciousness needed in the world today.

In addition, he has also facilitated many support groups and led numerous workshops over the years. He is a student and teacher of A Course in Miracles, a map he uses for his own life and for spiritual psychotherapy. For Ken, this work combined with spiritual principles and goals, is a journey from fear to love.

Early in life, Ken began turning inward to find insight into his search for “the truth.” Over time, he began to love his questions and devloped a deep desire to connect with others to search for answers together. Along the way, that quest revealed itself to be a spiritual path. His offerings include such topics as creating inner space, finding our inherent power and wisdom, coming home to ourselves, and living life from a place of awareness and peace.

Since then, he has traveled there frequently for extended periods of time, meeting and studying with many well-known spiritual teachers. He has been meditating formally since the mid 1970’s, and as a result of this, his studies, and the grace of his teachers and Divine Spirit, he has experienced shifts in his conscious awareness.

Like all of us who are awakening, Bob has gone through extremely challenging periods. He draws on his personal experiences and shifts in consciousness to guide others in their awakening and transformation, a path he feels we are all walking together. His offerings include leading mediation and spiritual growth groups.

Her calling is to make space for deep, mindful listening, contemplation, and awareness. Her offerings to help others do that include book studies, individual and group spiritual direction, and guided retreats.

The Journey to Oz and Back: Our Search for Home

Facilitated by: Ken Frazier and Phillip Ward

 

“You don’t need to be helped any longer. You’ve always had the power to go back to Kansas.”
—Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, The Wizard of Oz

The Wizard of Oz is an allegory about our inner search for our true home. The heart of the story is our human desire to return to the love and safety we once knew but which we lost when the storms of life took us on a different path. The characters in the story symbolize our belief that we lack what we need to find our way home.

In this 2-day workshop, we will:

  • Explore the search for home as a journey of mind, body and spirit
  • Discover the barriers which you have placed between yourself and home
  • Tap into your inner power to return to the love and safety you once knew
  • Learn how to use this power cognitively, somatically and spiritually for your own healing and to be a healing force in the world

We hope you will join us to come to know yourselves better and find your true inner home.

Dates: Sat., July 20 and Sun., July 21

9:00 – 5:00 both days. Lunch on your own

Together, Ken and Phillip have developed a model for teaching the principles and skills needed for the integration of mind, body and spirit for engaging life with more self-awareness and presence. Ken brings his expertise in Cognitive Mechanics, a method for helping others learn to recognize the ego-mind and access the inner Observer-Decision Maker to more consciously navigate life’s conflicts. Phillip brings his expertise in teaching the principles of Tai Chi – balance, centering, alignment and conscious awareness – as a way for managing everyday life, always encouraging his students to “never miss a moment to generate a higher level of consciousness.”

Ken holds a M.Ed. in counseling and has served as a mental health counselor for forty years. Through his practice, the Phobia Treatment Center of Greensboro, he works with clients for the treatment of anxiety disorders and depression. He is a teacher of A Course in Miracles and has been trained in EMDR and Mindfulness. He incorporates these into his work with clients when called for. For more information, read Ken’s bio here.

Creating Inner Space

Facilitated by: Ken Frazier, M.Ed., LPC

 

“The mind is great when used as a tool and not so great when it is calling the shots.”
~Joan Borysenko, author of Inner Peace for Busy People and The Power of the Mind to Heal

Eckhart Tolle, Joan Borysenko, Byron Katie and many other spiritual teachers tell us that it’s not what happens to us that causes our distress. It’s what we think about these events that are the real source of our suffering.

We will use the principles and practices of Cognitive Mechanics to understand how our thoughts (i.e., cognitions) are CAUSE and that emotions, behaviors and even physical sensations are EFFECT. Understanding the relationship between “ego mind” and the “observer/decision maker” allows us to effectively use mindfulness to create distance between ourselves and the mental-emotional turmoil of a mind at war with itself.

Specifically, this experience will help you:

  • Examine the relationship between your ego and your observer/decision maker
  • Identify your fundamental ego beliefs that drive your limiting stories about who you are and what the world is
  • Learn specific tools to deal with the worry, catastrophic thinking, and automatic self-defeating thoughts that keep you stuck in painful patterns
  • Develop a “corrective” belief system for yourself
  • Learn to apply the principles of Cognitive Mechanics to support achieving your desire for more peaceful living

Date: Saturday, Aug. 17

Time:
9:00 – 5:00  Lunch on your own

Location:
Office of Ken Frazier, 5318 W. Friendly Ave., Suite B, Greensboro NC

Cost:
Sliding scale from $70 – $120

To register: Use the “ticket” buttons above to pay online with credit, debit or bank draft via PayPal. Or, if you wish to pay by cash or check, choose the “PAY BY CHECK” ticket and you will hear back from our administrator, Kathleen Edwards, with details about how to pay.

About Ken: A psychotherapist in private practice, Ken has been using Cognitive Mechanics with clients for years, helping them attain the self-awareness and peace of mind they long for to live with joy and confidence. Here’s Ken’s bio.
