Tai Chi Chih is a way of life, practicing and constantly learning to move from the center of your being. Chi energy is the Vital Life Force bridging Mind, Body and Soul. This practice balances the Chi that brings a sense of well-being and serenity amidst activity. Tai Chi Chih has been the most steadfast and reliable Spiritual Practice in my life. I am inspired to share this practice with you. It is accessible to people of all abilities, ages and challenges. Let’s move together to bring balance to our lives during this challenging time.

Moved to Albuquerque 10 years ago. It’s home, and I love it here, and I love our ACSL community as well.  Being a Licensed Spiritual Practitioner keeps me grounded in my heart. Ernest Holmes said : “There is a Power for Good in the Universe and we can use it”.  I’m grateful to know that and to speak prayer from that perspective.

I know through prayer we can change our thinking and change our life. Mis-beliefs about who and what we are have dominated most of our lives. We can change those beliefs through Sacred Prayer. We are created whole and complete, there is nothing wrong with us, never has been. Prayer is powerful and will alter thought. We have the opportunity now to create the life we want. My area of specialty is the personal relationship with self and others. God is all there is.

Madi Suarez


My name is Madi Suarez. I grew up in the Los Angeles area of California and moved to NM in March of 2005. I attended the ABQ Center for Spiritual Living starting in 2010 after reading "The Secret" because I wanted to meet other people and talk about manifesting! I stuck around for a few years and then left. I came back in October of 2017 and got very involved. I took some classes and then started Practitioner studies in September of 2018. I became a licensed Practitioner in July 2020. I live in the northeast area of Albuquerque with my 9 year old dog, Robin.

What We Believe

Adapted from Ernest Holmes by Rev. Amani Malaika 

We believe in God as peace, love, harmony, beauty, abundance and goodness. We believe that all of life is the life of God unceasing and beyond. 


We believe that we are each where God shows up,  like a point of light in the rays of the sun, each of us makes up this one extraordinary life of God. 


We believe that the very essence of who we are, the center of our being, cannot die it is never ending and continues to expand infinitely.


We believe that  the idea of heaven, the wondrous place of nirvana, is within each of us. We can each experience the promises of heaven and nirvana, peace, love, joy, abundance, beauty, and harmony as we become more and more aware of our true natures.


We believe the ultimate goal of life to be a complete freedom from all discord of every nature, and that this goal is sure to be attained by all.


We believe that there is no place that God is not. The ultimate unceasing Love, that is God, exploded itself into this very universe, into all of creation, into you and me. It is who and what we are.


We believe that God is Love and can be felt by everyone in their internal experience.


We believe that we can all experience the truth of who we are in ourselves and through understanding our true divine nature we are able to express and live the truth of God. 


We believe the nature of the universe is the life and nature of God. Just as we are individual expressions of this life our thoughts and desires are as well. These thoughts are creative, always being responded to by the whole. 


We believe we can use the creative power of mind to co-create our lives. We are the painters painting our lives into being. 


We believe in the eternal Goodness, the eternal Loving-kindness and the eternal Givingness of Life to All.


We believe in our true nature, our true inner-being, and our inevitable understanding and experience of this truth; for we understand that the life of all is God.
