Center for Spiritual Care

Integrating Body, Mind, Spirit & Creativity

COVID-19 Resiliency Workshops

Scheduled for March

         Indian River County residents continue to be ranked by public health experts as at "very high risk.”  Vaccines are here but still tantalizingly out of reach for many of us.  And what does it really mean for our safety even after we complete the full vaccine regimen?  These questions and many others bedevil us even a full year after COVID-19 was declared a pandemic. 

         Continued funding from United Way and the CARES Act allows the Center for Spiritual Care host another Zoom series of COVID-19 Resiliency Workshops in March.  If you are struggling with isolation, fear and stress caused by COVID anxieties, you may benefit from taking this free workshop.  It is designed to help you clarify your thinking and face the future with hope and courage.

Our Mission
To provide individual and small group spiritual and holistic growth experiences leading to personal clarity, emotional empowerment, freedom and authenticity.

We Do This in an interfaith setting, through spiritual direction, psychological counseling and programs and services that strengthen the relationship between body, mind, spirit and creativity. For details of our day-to-day offerings, click here.


Our Primary Focus Areas include Spiritual Nurturing and Psychological Development. In addition, we feature the following:

Body Work Various therapeutic techniques help restore health and balance to the entire person. Massage therapists, yoga teachers, reflexologists, reiki masters and medical hypnotherapists provide services to help people embody their spiritual and psychological aspirations.

The Arts and Creativity Respected artists in many fields provide both quiet and lively creative environments that allow people to experience deep insights, empowerment and freedom. We offer Icon Writing workshops, spiritually-themed art exhibits, the Artists Way and a variety of hands-on workshops.

Our Lecture Program provides qualified speakers on a regular basis to discuss body, mind and spirit integration as well as the spirituality of different faith traditions, for example: the Tao, Celtic spirituality, Zen, and Ignatian spirituality.

Our Lending Library is a place to refresh your mind with the classics and contemporary thinking about spirituality. We have more than 1,675 volumes and audio and video resources.

Our Meditation Garden is a place to refresh your spirit in nature. It’s centrally located in old downtown Vero Beach. You are welcome to come and sit amidst the birds and the butterflies at your convenience.

Our Program Rooms are available for Rental for your meetings, gatherings, workshop and classes (Download the rental agreement/application)



As you know, the Center survives through the commitment and generosity of our members.  We’re counting on you more than ever to help ensure that our programs and services continue to flourish during the COVID-19 pandemic on Zoom and -- to the extent possible -- in house.  Your annual membership dues are one convenient way to do that. Take a moment to renew your membership now at whatever level feels appropriate for you.  We deeply appreciate the assistance you offer the Center, and we hope to see you at one of our upcoming programs when we are able again to meet regularly on site at the Center. 



Dear Friends and Patrons,

We have some very good news.  A generous local artist has mounted an exhibition on line to  auction her work and  donate the full sale price  to the Center.  This initiative will greatly benefit the Center in this difficult pandemic time when revenues and donations have been well below past years.

We are grateful to Kate Russum for offering her quite remarkable works in her “Art From the Heart” on-line auction through BetterWorld:  Click here

Please take a few minutes to check out this website and enjoy Kate’s work.  And anything you bid on will benefit the Center.

Thanks for your ongoing support,

Carol Ludwig
