A Spiritual Practitioner is a person of high spiritual consciousness and deep understanding, trained in the study of the Science of Mind, and in the art, science and skill of Affirmative Prayer. Practitioners are dedicated to the cause of helping others, licensed to practice professionally, and bound by a high code of ethics to respect your privacy.
Speak with one of our Spiritual Practitioners if you are in need of inspiration, celebration of a major event in your life and/or healing in any area: financial, relational, health or career. You are a wondrous gift of the Divine. Let our Spiritual Practitioners remind you of that!
Practitioners support our spiritual community in a variety of ways:
- Prayer support before and after Sunday Services
- Responding to your written, email and phone prayer requests
All of the above services are provided as a gift to our spiritual community.
Prayer Practitioners are also available for individual spiritual support sessions on a fee basis. A session with a Prayer Practitioner provides a safe, nurturing environment for you to explore your spiritual practices and current beliefs that you would like to change. You are provided with the opportunity to co-create a “new” thought in your life that allows you to change your thinking and change your life!

No one is ever denied treatment for inability to pay.

Margaret Anne is a native of Toronto. She was raised in the New Thought teachings and has always loved knowing she is Divine. Her work experience has been eclectic, working in accounting and computer information systems. She renewed her early life’s direction of spiritual study and service in 2001, studying spiritual psychotherapy and attaining Reiki Master.

Her devotion is to respond to the Divine in all people and to recognize the Common Essence in everything. To be a Science of Mind Practitioner is the commitment of her heart.
Helen Valleau, RScP
Author, Speaker, Coach and Visioning expert, Helen believes that every person has the infinite potential to live a life of greatness and purpose and make a positive contribution to the world.
Helen began studying The Science of Mind at CSL Toronto in 2007 after receiving a calling to Ministry. The teachings were a confirmation of how powerful and precious we all are and an awakening the power of Affirmative Prayer. It is an honour for Helen to be affiliated with CSL Toronto and serve on the Board of Trustees while continuing her studies.
In 2010 Helen published a visioning workbook: A year of possibilities that offers a variety of ways that people can work with her to achieve their dreams. Her second book, 100 Minutes of Inspiration, offers short, easy-to-read, daily reminders that you have the power to change your life. A series of Possibility Movies, meditations for the mind and spirit using images, music and affirmative prayer were released in April.
A free e-book on Vision, Purpose and Passion will be released in June and you can sign up for her Monthly Newsletter on her website.
