About Us

The High Desert Center for Spiritual Living  invites you to visit our spiritual community to explore new possibilities for your life. Our center is dedicated to helping individuals discover the spiritual tools and an inner Power that has the ability to transform lives and make the world a better place.


Our Vision: “We are a welcoming community thriving in Love, appreciation, gratitude, peace, and joy.”

Our Mission: “We reveal vibrant, evolving wholeness by seeing beyond appearances to create richly, inspired living. “

Our Purpose: “To share awareness of our Oneness using Science of Mind principles to embrace a world that works for everyone.”


The High Desert Center for Spiritual Living is an affiliated member of the United Centers for Spiritual Living located in Golden, Colorado. Our center was founded in 1998 by Rev. Richard Imprescia. In 1999 Rev. Jac Blackman became the senior minister of High Desert CSL. In 2014, Reverend Darlene Dunning assumed the mantle of Senior Minister. We are currently in the process of selecting a new minister.

In 2008, our name was officially changed from the “High Desert Church of Religious Science” to “High Desert Center for Spiritual Living” as part of the nation-wide decision that “Centers for Spiritual Living” more closely captured the essence of the CSL experience.

We offer a practical spiritual teaching that draws on the wisdom of the ages and New Thought principles, in order to promote awakening and personal growth. With a variety of services available, the High Desert Center for Spiritual Living  meets the needs of families, singles, children, adults, and seniors. Whatever your lifestyle or spiritual path, you will feel welcomed. Our spiritual community is ready to embrace, love, and accept you as you are. Everyone is included on the path to God!

If you are looking for a warm, dynamic, loving community of like-minded people, we encourage you to visit the High Desert Center for Spiritual Living and claim the life your soul is seeking.
