About Your Facilitators:

Robert used to live there as a kid (best four years of his life!) and Josephine worked there for several years before coming to Shanghai. It has a special place in their hearts. Please pass this invite to someone needing a warm and caring spot for Chinese New Year. Please find out more about them, as well as some comments/feedback from previous CSL retreats and event…




Rev. Robert Applegate ~ CSL Spiritual Director

In my opinion, academic credentials in themselves don’t say that much about an individual; I’m much more interested in what motivated and sustained a person to start and complete that kind of journey.  Each one of my three degrees has a long story behind it and you’ll have to hear it some other time:  BA in Asian Studies, a law degree from New York, and a MA in Consciousness Studies.  I also have certificates in a variety of things such as “Professional Parenting”, “Community Conflict Resolution”, and Hospital Chaplaincy.  As I look at my office wall just now, I smile at the certificate that awards me the title of “Reveler of Truth”….In recognition of Conscientiousness, Patience, Commitment, Sweat Equity, and Valor towards Raising, Supporting, Educating and Being an Excellent Example to others in the quest.  The other ‘certificate’ is something I made myself when I was about 5 years old and living in Indonesia.  It is a crayon drawing along with the words, “This is Fun For Me!”  I keep this on my wall to remind myself to have FUN!  Professionally I do Spiritual Counseling- the kind that helps a person find the mental and emotional blocks that hinder the fullest expression of one’s Divine self.  I also teach classes at CSL that offer tools to further each person’s Nobel Purpose.  We only have this one life so why not live it with clarity and power.  The other qualities of God are also there to be experienced like Abundance, Beauty, Love, Balance, Unity, Grace, Oneness, Peace, Joy, and as my fiance Mahel says, “Chocolate Cake”.  Come claim your piece!
