What is a Practitioner? A Science of Mind Prayer Practitioner is a licensed spiritual support person trained to perform affirmative prayer for others. A Practitioner is dedicated to using this gift to uplift, heal and support your spiritual journey. Like other professionals in the healing arts, Practitioners typically charge for their services for one-on-one sessions, but no one is ever turned away due to lack of funds.
Contact a Practitioner if you are in need of inspiration, celebration of a major event and/or healing in any area of your life.
Prayer requests can be made several ways:

“I am very grateful to have studied to become a Science of Mind practitioner with Dr. Andrea, and I love applying these SOM principles to issues that we encounter.

“I would love to show you how we connect to Spirit and open to the flow of Divine energy. I am inspired by the book “Becoming Supernatural,” by Dr. Joe Dispenza, which explains the science upon which these principles are based, as well as providing very practical guided meditations for awakening a spiritual consciousness.“

Wanda Maddox, RScP
In 2020, Wanda completed the 2-year Professional Practitioner Studies program under the direction of Rev. Dr. Andrea Asebedo.
In July, 2014, I was introduced to CSL-Bellingham and immediately enrolled in an 8-week class starting in September: Science of Mind 101. It was a life-changing experience! Over the next three years I took 10 more classes and then began the two years of Practitioner Studies. Never before have I experienced such dramatic spiritual growth and evolvement! I am deeply grateful for the support, encouragement and love shared with my CSL-Bellingham Family throughout these six years together.
I feel joy bubbles within my entire being, as I eagerly look forward to opportunities to support the growth and evolvement of each of us knowing the Truth of Oneness and living fresh, solid, and free to be all that we truly are!
Deb Dole, RScP
Deb Dole completed her practitioner training in 2020 under Rev. Dr. Andrea Asebedo.
I have lived in Western Washington for 35 years and began taking classes at CSL Bellingham in 2012. The teachings have had a profound impact on my life. I know that by becoming more aware of the truth of who I am, by consciously choosing my thoughts, I can take responsibility for my life. I always have a choice. All of us – we are the co-creators of our life experience.
Many words describe my life: biologist and teacher, artist, musician, friend, mother, wife, band director, art teacher, hiker, volunteer, writer, and lots of others. It is this variety of life experiences, combined with the training required to become a licensed Professional Practitioner – that prepares me to meet you where you are and explore spiritual principles and how they play out in your life.
My passion involves the intersection of art, music, writing, movement and meditative practices with spirituality.
Katherine Wingerter., RScP
I have been a student of The Science of Mind for over 15 years. In 2016, I completed Practitioner Studies at Center for Spiritual Living in Bellingham, WA and earned my license. My favorite part of being a Practitioner is sharing a divine connection to Spirit with other people through prayer.
As a Practitioner, I also teach classes and workshops. One of my favorite feelings is the ‘aha’ of understanding when a concept suddenly makes sense. I love to share this with others.
In September of 2019 I began ministerial studies through the Center in Kelowna, BC and through Holmes Institute. During this time of study, I am also pursuing a Masters in Consciousness.
I also volunteer with the neighborhood teen group that my son attends. My family and I like to walk in the woods and by the river on the weekends. I am a writer, filmmaker, and website designer.

Michael is excited to learn and grow as a Practitioner and assist others in the discovery of their evolution and attainment of their desires through the use of Science of Mind principles.
