Kelley Hazen RScP
I grew up in Huntington Beach. I spent most of my adult life in Laguna Beach and Laguna Niguel. I was self-employed for 26 years before retiring and moving to the desert. Spirituality has always been my first love. I believe I was just born that way. My interests have always led me to the best teachers who always showed up at just the right time! It was after Unity in Palm Springs closed that I met Dr. Rev Michael Kearney who invited me to CSLPS where he was the Spiritual Leader. Turns out it was by Divine Plan and not by default! I felt right at home and have been a member for almost ten years now. I worked at Eisenhower Hospital as a volunteer Chaplain for 5 years. In their program “No one dies alone” I learned to become an end of life coach. It was in SOM that I found and still live the greatest Truth.
“There is only One Power, not two.” It continues to be the guiding Light of my life. Becoming a Practitioner has been a fantastic journey of self-discovery and expansion that I would highly recommend. I look forward to serving at CSLPS.
Tommi Jones RScP
I was introduced to the Science of Mind teachings as a teenager, but for me the teachings had no meaning… For several decades, I searched for a Spiritual philosophy to believe in. Over the course of my life I’ve been exposed to or studied Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, and Judaism, but nothing resonated for me. I remained spiritually disconnected and a non-believer. In 2008, facing substantial hardships, I compared my situation to that of my mother who I knew lives a charmed life because of her unwavering faith in the Science of Mind teachings. As a result, I returned to the Science of Mind teachings hoping to also live a charmed life. But, I maintained the attitude, “nothing else is working so what do I have to lose.” To my surprise, after I attended services, bought Ernest Holmes’ book Science of Mind, and took Science of Mind classes, life finally began to make sense. Learning and living by the principles, I watched my circumstances take a turn for the better. I entered Practitioner training after realizing I must have found my calling and Spiritual home. I became a licensed Practitioner in 2013.
Tim Wedrosky RScP
I am originally from the Tacoma/Seattle area and have lived in Palm Springs full time since the fall of 2008. I began attending religious science services and classes in 1990, and have been a licensed practitioner since 2012. The foundation of my work as a practitioner is to inspire clients to live an authentic life and awaken to their magnificent self, to empower them to free themselves from limiting beliefs and to help them discover their forgotten dreams. These are exciting times we are living in at this moment and everyone has an important part to play.
Tatiana Wrenfeather RScP Emeritus
I have earned the title of Practitioner Emeritus for completing 20 years of exemplary service. I discovered the Agape Center of Truth in 1992. The Science of Mind philosophy so resonated with me that I promptly began taking classes with Reverend Michael Bernard Beckwith to deepen my understanding of this profound teaching. In 1996 I became a licensed Practitioner. In 1999, I earned an MA in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica. I am a volunteer chaplain for the Eisenhower Medical Center, donating over 1000 hours to this ministry. In seven years of service, praying one-on-one, I witnessed many miraculous healings. I am an Instructor at the renowned Two Bunch Palms Spa and Resort in Desert Hot Springs, teaching “Spiritual Counseling” and “Attitude for Gratitude.” I also enjoy a private practice, ministering to clients in person or by telephone. My mission statement is: “I am a beneficial presence to all living beings, expressing gratitude, love, wisdom and peace all ways.”
As individualized expressions of the Divine, our experience of life is unique to each of us. When parts of our life seem not to be working or we find ourselves repeating a pattern that no longer suits us, we are free to choose new ideas and beliefs. In Science of Mind we believe our lives are only limited by our beliefs. As a Practitioner I stand knowing the Divinely inspired perfection of you! Together in a safe and loving environment with an open heart, I listen, ask appropriate questions, suggest spiritual tools and practices all while supporting you with affirmative prayer. It is my Joy to be of service.

I am originally from Atlanta, the son of a Methodist minister and a mother who has read the Science of Mind, our CSL monthly magazine, for decades. I spent the 1980’s in Los Angeles attending Marianne Williamson lectures on a Course of Miracles, and in the early 1990’s began attending North Hollywood Church of Religious Science, where I became a CSL Practitioner. I have been with my partner Tim for 32 years and together we moved to the desert in 2010. I work full-time with computers and data in financial services, and have a MBA. Both my partner and I have experienced health opportunities along our Spiritual path: Tim’s requires me to be there most of my time to assist him. I welcome the opportunity to explore our Spiritual Unfoldment together.

John Ottinger RScP
After spending a summer at the Oregon ashram of Bagwhan Sri Rajneesh, I discovered the entrancing music and preaching of Rickie Byars and Michael Beckwith at Agape in LA. There I studied SOM and became a practitioner. Singing in the choir, I was encouraged to write and perform solo hymns as well. I moved my license to the Palm Springs Center in 2002, where I have done some singing and counseling and facilitated a Book Circle.
Stephen Record RScP
I was born and reared in Southern California. I went to California State University Northridge where I got a BA degree, and then to San Diego State where I got my MBA in finance.

I have studied metaphysics for the past 25 years. I became a Licensed Practitioner in 2000 and have called Palm Springs my spiritual home for 13 years. I am so grateful for this teaching and all the blessing it has brought me.
