Licensed Spiritual Practitioner, Board Member, Vocalist

Laura Perkins was born and raised in Alabama where she completed a BS in Math and Science Education from Auburn University. Before settling in the Pacific Northwest, she spent a decade teaching and working in site-based governance, leadership roles for the alternative education program and high school in Ogden, Utah. With two young sons at home and a need to better understand life, Laura began metaphysical studies, finishing her initial professional spiritual practitioner licensing in early 2003.

As a founding member of her spiritual community, Laura has served at New Thought Center for Spiritual Living in various Practitioner Ministries and in Music Ministry from the beginning. She believes music is a dynamic form of prayer and profound expression of the Divine demonstrating through physical form.

In 2012 to 2017 Laura supported the Adult Education Ministry in systems development and various leadership roles. Laura is passionate about and committed to living a life of applied spiritual Principle, bringing this perspective to whatever she does including her management work at a local search engine optimization company. In addition to teaching and workshop facilitation, Laura also mentors others in one-on-one spiritual practitioner sessions.

Sacred service is an integral part of Laura’s path, knowing the Divinity that lights our human experience. "It is an honor and privilege to share this sacred journey with others as we all come to a greater expression of our own True nature and purpose as individuals, in community, and in leadership."

He started performing special music at his home church in Corvallis, Oregon, since the age of six, and has enjoyed both classical and more rock music-based forms of faith expression ever since. He plays a number of instruments, including cello, guitar, piano, bass, drums and vocals. Chris looks forward to meeting everyone and bringing his talents to our community with no holding back, and contribute to our visions for a more awakened and loving world. Chris just released a full-length album, entitled "Enraptured," that can be found on iTunes, Spotify, and CD Baby, by simply searching "Chris Rorrer" on those platforms.

I embody the principles of New Thought in my everyday life and it makes such a positive difference in all that I do and all that I touch -- in my counseling practice and in my spiritual practitioner practice.
