Center for Spiritual Transformation

CST St B logo

OUR LOGO incorporates the ancient symbols of the chambered nautilus and the lit candle.  Each represents an aspect of the sacred journey.  To grow, the nautilus must create and move into successively larger chambers while retaining its initial growth. 

Candles can pierce the darkness around us and light the path before us.

 OUR MISSION is to offer safe space, diverse pathways, and community that deepens one’s relationship with God.
