Our Mission

The Meaningful Life Center (MLC) is a spiritual health center that empowers you to find meaning in everything you do, and discover your personal mission in life. Through a wide variety of live and published programming, videos, webcasts, podcasts, articles and personally customized counseling and materials, the MLC offers you empowering and potent life skills that improve every aspect of your life. From love and relationships to work and finance, from fear and anxiety to joy and celebration, from birth to death all life cycles in between, you can look forward to an exhilarating journey, which will both stimulate and provoke you to actualize your enormous potential and reach unprecedented heights.

The Meaningful Life Center is built on the belief that life is precious and that every individual has a unique and indispensable contribution to make. Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote: Alas for those that never sing but die with all their music in them. The MLC is dedicated to assuring that you find and sing your special song.

We extend an invitation for learning and growing to everyone! Come, explore, and discover how to live a truly happy and amazing life… living up to your highest potential.
