Jenny Peery, Treasurer

It has been Jenny’s pleasure to have lived in the Columbus area for more than 35 years with service in the banking industry and accounting department at State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio as my labor of love.  Family, her husband of 9 years, Craig Newburgh and their cat, CJ, are closest to her heart.  Spiritual learning, philosophy, astrology, architecture, caring for mother earth, and team building are some of her passions.

Jenny’s vision for The Columbus Center for Spiritual Living: Our mission statement “….a world that works for everyone, one person at a time starting with me” energized Jenny’s vision of The Columbus Center for Spiritual Living as the proving ground for the teaching of the founders of Science of Mind.  A safe place where we can all learn, communicate with compassion and practice the principles together in creating a world that respects, loves and works together with all of our unique differences.  Working with our community at The Columbus Center for Spiritual Living to provide us all with a place to learn, converse and experience the principles.  To use the tools of compassion and love in our homes, our families, our community, our states, our country and globally.  A world that works for everyone, starting with Jenny.  Together we learn to live it, through our Columbus Center for Spiritual Living community.

Janeen Sands

Growing up in Athens, Ohio, surrounded by the campus of Ohio University, I very much appreciate and relish the energy that comes with learning, seeking and growing.  To that end, with a background in education, I have had the opportunity and privilege to serve as a member of several academic advisor teams focused on supporting students in their academic endeavors.

An avid gardener, and steward of our Earth, I live in an energy efficient home, with solar panels and a geothermal heating and cooling system.   And I am excited to share that I am stepping into a new adventure in which I am re-purposing to a second ‘career.’  As co-owner of an organic orchard, I now get to play outside, be part of the wonderful progression of the seasons of apples and pears and see first-hand the gifts each season offers!

Janeen’s vision for the Center:  The Welcome sign shines bright, big and bold at the Columbus Center for Spiritual Living!  My vision for the Center is that of continuing to grow as a welcoming, loving and thriving community.  A community that supports, nurtures and uplifts each member of the CCSL community while reaching out to the larger Columbus community.  Together, we get to decide what a welcoming, loving, thriving community looks like.  For me it looks like the extraordinary in the ordinary – growing a garden together and eating a meal of the wonderful vegetables, singing around a fire, attending a class, meeting for a cup of tea or taking a walk together.  I see a welcoming community standing on the foundation of Our Essence – we are the joyful expression of Spirit; embracing Our Message – as you change your thinking, you change your life; and growing Our Vision “We are…starting with me.”

Tim Wefler, Member

Tim’s vision for The Columbus Center for Spiritual Living: Tim’s vision for CCSL would be that we are a growing and thriving diverse community of spiritually-minded and loving people who function together well and financially responsible, so that we can continue to enjoy our time together and the teaching opportunities that we choose to pursue regarding life and spirituality.  Tim would like to help CCSL find a way in the future to secure our own location, if the membership feels that this would be important or worthwhile.  He would also like to see our membership ranks grow, reaching people who are seeking a spiritual experience without the dogma of mainstream religions.  He believes there are many people who are looking for what we have and are creating.
