    in Spirituality

    Rev. Abigail Schairer, is a dynamic speaker and talented teacher. She is known for her practical advice and her study of spiritual masters from all the great religions. She believes we are all a part of the human race, here to help create the life God intended us to have – one of absolute fun, complete abundance, and freedom. Her vision is to transform the planet by helping people awaken to their own magnificence and tap into their own connection with the Divine.


    Rev. Abigail founded Center for Spiritual Living, Peninsula (affiliated with Centers for Spiritual Living) in August, 2012 a year after graduation from Holmes Institute of Consciousness studies with her Master’s Degree.

She recently left her 11 career in Development at Stanford University to pursue ministry full time and to live as the example for people to follow their dreams. 


    1. I just quit my job (last day May 30th) at Stanford University to do ministry full time. 2. I'm a lesbian minister (Been married to my wife for 7 years, got "officially" and legally married 6 years ago.) 3. I started on this path relatively young- I'm 35 and have been a minister for 3 years. 4. I started getting serious when my fiance (now ex) left me for one of my friends...then I started dating God. And God sent me 10 dozen roses.
