MannyG started his prayer and healing work, right here in Orlando CSL. He was first licensed in 2003 and quickly became one of the main healing practitioners. While doing Spiritual Mind Treatments/ affirmative prayer, he soon realized that it’s the emotional energy, the knowingness, behind the words that manifest change in our world.
While meeting several congregants that had received dental healings from Dr. Rev. Willard Fuller, he decided to go meet him and soon after he took Willard’s classes and got Ordained/ licensed to do healing work as Rev. Rabbi Emanuel. This led to using affirmative prayer with hands on healing.
While on the meditation path, MannyG met Roy Davis a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, the famous Kriya Yogi and author of “Autobiography of a Yogi”. Roy is the only living direct disciple of Paramahansa. During the many years under Roy’s direction and spiritual practices, he got to experience higher levels of awareness. He took initiations by Roy many times and has been given the name Yogi Shivananda by Paramahansa Yogananda.
While at Orlando CSL MannyG attended a Dances of Universal Peace workshop. These spiritual dance/ body prayers led him to participate in the Dances of Universal Peace. Eventually he led gatherings of Peace dances right here in Orlando for over a decade. These peace dances are protected, nurtured and held by the Sufi Ruhaniat Order which is a lineage of the famous Sufi mystics Rumi and Hafiz. MannyG has been initiated into this lineage with the Sufi name Majeed MannyG.
Experiencing all these wonderful spiritual paths has given MannyG quite a varied array of spiritual connections to assist you in transformational healing. Here at Orlando CSL, he is available to you and for you, as a Healing Practitioner, RScP. Experience a complementary and powerful healing on Sundays after service. He is also available for professional services as well. Feel free to say hello and introduce yourself.
Christopher Lahiff was brought into The Science of Mind and Spirit at Mile Hi Church in Lakewood, Co in 2009. The practice and teachings resonated deeply with what he had always felt within and he was launched on the journey to becoming a Practitioner. While this path started both spiritually and physically in Colorado, he has been fortunate to learn and practice with individuals from all across the country. After moving to Cleveland OH, he completed training online, while participating in the services with the small but powerful group at Miracle CSL, Cleveland. He spent one year practicing the SOM Principles at the quickly growing Connecticut CSL in Middletown, CT. He is now excited to be actively engaging with the burgeoning community here at Orlando Center for Spiritual Living.
Over the past few years Chris has actively put into action his desire to carry the principles of SOM to multiple venues. Often combined with his passion for music, Chris has offered guitar meditations to individuals living in an Alzheimer’s facility, as well as for center members. Moreover, he has shared his spiritual adventures, giving lectures on fatherhood, recovery, anger, all highlighting the principles and teachings of SOM. It is his intention to build upon this foundation and carry the message to broader audiences through workshops, conferences, coaching sessions, and work as a practitioner at Orlando CSL.
