Rev. Abigail Schairer
Spiritual Director, Center for Spiritual Living, Peninsula, CA As a vibrant minister, dynamic speaker, and compassionate spiritual counselor, Rev. Abigail Schairer is inciting a global Love-olution by awakening people to their spiritual magnificence and radiant essence. Her spiritual journey began at the age of 21 after walking into Center for Spiritual Living San Jose, where she instantly found her “tribe”. Diving passionately into spiritual studies, she became a licensed Religious Science Practitioner in 2005 and later in 2011 graduated from the Holmes Institute of Consciousness Studies with her master’s degree and ministerial license. In 2012, Rev. Abigail founded Center for Spiritual Living Peninsula, where she lovingly guides a growing congregation to embrace their own Divine potential. Inspired by the awesome collective potential of women in this world, she birthed SisterSpirit Women’s Retreat in 2008. She continues to facilitate this annual retreat, empowering women to live fully in their authenticity, allowing their love, creativity, and spirituality to heal themselves and the world. In 2015, Rev. Abigail also created a remarkable experience designed for spiritual adults ages 18–35, the Next Gen Retreat, as an investment in the future leaders of the world. This retreat educates participants about social justice, engaging in healthy relationships, leadership skills, and emboldens them to create a sustainable future of prosperity, service, and love for all. Rev. Abigail draws inspiration from the great spiritual masters of all religions and seamlessly marries it with practical guidance in her speaking and teaching. With a spirit as fun as her hair, love is at the core of all she expresses. 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 joy, complete abundance, and freedom. Abigail resides in San Jose, CA with her wife, Geena, their two cats, a stuffed “Unikitty,” and an assortment of books that threatens to take over their house. When she’s not changing the world, she learning how to cook healthy food, watching amazing movies, dancing to powerful music, going to plays, hiking, bike-riding… Rumor has it that, once in a while, she also sleeps!
