The School is grounded in universal spirituality and infused with the heart of hospitality. Our purpose is to create a space where individuals can deepen their spiritual lives and experience a shift in consciousness. We offer classes, study groups, workshops, and retreats to provide individuals the opportunity to:

• Learn from a variety of spiritual traditions

• Be in community with people on a spiritual journey

• Develop real-life skills for more awakened living

• Embrace their human nature and spiritual essence

• Discover 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?

Core Values

We are honored to hold The School as a sacred trust and to be stewards of this space. Those who are drawn to The School will be treated with respect, kindness and safety. Tolerance and forbearance are both offered and expected. Further, the opinions and questions of everyone present are taken seriously and greeted with authentic listening by teachers and participants alike.

We believe we are all here to learn from each other, and that what we do with our time and how we do it, matters critically. Our sacred intention and vision is to contribute to the well-being of all living beings and to the Earth itself, and we offer The School as a place where significant spiritual exploration and transformation may occur for all who come.

Our work is a sacred calling to serve, and no one will ever be turned away because of money. In addition, we make scholarships available whenever possible.

Our Faculty

Our faculty is comprised of individuals who are committed to their own spiritual growth and awakening. Individually and as a group, we seek to share our expertise, gifts, and insights with others to support them in their journeys. We want our participants to hear from voices other than our own, so we occasionally feature guest teachers and presenters to share their wisdom and talent so we can all be students and teachers to one another.

Marilyn Wolf

Marilyn is the founder and director of The School. Her transformative experiences which began in 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 affirmed her gift for gathering people into community for the shared joy of exploration, learning, and support.

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

Linda Brown

Linda is a retired professor of African American Literature and creative writing. She is the author of three novels, numerous poems, and essays. Her book, Belles of Liberty, is about the role of Bennett College in the Greensboro civil rights movement. It grew out of her life-long passion for racial and social justice.

Linda is a life-long seeker of metaphysical wisdom and truths as well as being a seasoned spiritual teacher. Her offerings include book studies, workshops and retreats exploring such topics as the divine feminine; metaphysics and spirituality; writing as a spiritual discipline; patriarchy, racism, and other systems of dominance; and issues of social justice and change.

Ken Frazier

Ken FrazierKen holds an M.Ed. in counseling and served in the mental health field for forty years. In addition, he has also facilitated many support groups and led numerous workshops on a variety of topics over the years. He is a student and teacher of A Course in Miracles, a system 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 developed 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, and living life from a place of awareness and peace.

Ken now has a coaching practice, working with individuals in search of a more mindful and awakened life.

Laura Santana

Laura is a lifelong learner and global citizen.

Her boundary transcending exploration in service to human development combines academic rigor, real world experience, and the yoga of daily disciplines. Mindfulness practices serve as a cornerstone of her career. Initially teaching mind-body-spirit well being to executives, Laura then founded and directed an ashram, facilitated sacred retreats with shamans, and curated yearlong development journeys-many for women.

Laura holds space for people to explore possibilities, break through internal and external limitations, and reimagine how they will engage authentically with life. Simply put, she curates journeys for moving beyond ego into connection.
