The Center for Spiritual Living Jacksonville holds that all life is sacred—and that each human being is an expression of God.

Her favorite Ernest Holmes quote is: “We are born to be happy, to be abundantly supplied with every good thing, to have fun in living, to consciously unite with the Divine Power that is around us and within us, and to grow and expand forever.”


Sherri Cunningham, RScP (Religious Science Practitioner), Minister In Training, was born and raised in Denver, Colorado.

She was introduced to Ernest Holmes and Centers For Spiritual Living at a young age, and her ministers growing up were the ever-favorite Dr. Fred Vogt, and the inspirational Dr. Roger Teel, at Mile Hi Church in Denver Colorado. She is currently enrolled at the Centers For Spiritual Living School of Spiritual Leadership in pursuit of her Ministerial License.

Sherri’s journey through Practitioner training led her into several life-changing experiences that shaped how she currently approaches her spiritual practices, and her connection to a higher power. Sherri is a Reiki Practitioner Level II, A member of the International Association of Reiki Professionals, and a memorial service Celebrant. She has recently finished her End Of Life Doula training with the International End Of Life Doula Association and is a Community Hospice volunteer. She is very active in her recovery community and an active, loyal, and supportive member of the Center for Spiritual Living Jacksonville where her Practitioner license is held with Dr. Rev. Elizabeth Cantey.

For fun, Sherri is a beekeeper with sixty thousand bees, enjoys organic gardening, her two cats and Shih Tzu, Reiki, and her red motorcycle. But mostly, she’s just grateful for the opportunity to serve in a way that speaks to many different people. Her “toolbag” is very deep and diverse which makes it very effective. For more information or for ministry, you can reach Sherri at MindfulSTA.com or [email protected] or 904.535.6853.

Love is within us. It cannot be destroyed. It can be ignored. To the extent that we abandon love we will feel it has abandoned us. Denying love is our only problem, and embracing it is the only answer. Through the power of love, we can let go of past history and begin again. Love heals, forgives, and makes whole. – Ernest Holmes
