Teen Church is for youth ages 13 to 18 years. The purpose of Teen Church is for teens to develop an awareness of the Divine Presence within, to learn to trust in their inner wisdom and guidance, to accept their inherent value and unique self-worth, to discover and use the creative power of mind in their everyday lives, and to experience and express love for themselves and one another.
This purpose is accomplished through the teens learning Spiritual principles in group discussion and experiential workshops led by an advisor. As the teens share their dreams, fears and experiences in safe, spiritual environment, they find acceptance, encouragement and personal spiritual growth. They develop confidence within themselves and respect for the value of self. International Centers for Spiritual Living Youth Seminars twice a year: one in winter (3 days long) in Northern and Southern California, and one in summer (1 week long), the location varies. Teens throughout the United States and Canada are welcome.
These seminars are planned and organized by the Executive and Workshop Committees for Youth Seminars under the leadership of the ICSL Director of Youth Education. These seminars encourage spiritual growth in an environment which offers freedom of expression within the framework of planned activities.
