“I am continuous learner and teacher. Whatever I learn, I start teaching organically by talking to people or by forming a class. The outcome is a living experience of life.”
Among her many contributions to the CSL community, Rev. Debora Gay oversees the Education Department, where she develops the Center’s Spiritual Study curriculum and works with CSL’s inspired and gifted teachers.

Today, among her many contributions, she serves as a steward of the overall spiritual community and ministers to CSL’s Prayer Practitioners/ Spiritual Counselors.
Rev. Debora embarked on her spiritual journey after a successful career in public service, where she specialized in public policy, administration, and program development for local governments.

She also earned her MBA in Public Policy from the University of Washington.
Rev. Debora integrates the spiritual wisdom of a minister with the practical wisdom of a professional administrator using the languages of logic, finance, intuition, prayer, and spiritual visioning.
