Speaking at the Global Truth Center in North Hollywood, CA on July 17, 2016. Topic: “No more ‘Yeah, but’s'”

Hi, I’m Joselito Laudencia.

With a Master of Divinity from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, I’ve helped hundreds of clients and students to find their right work, heal their relationship with money and live a more meaningful, fulfilling and purposeful life.

This is my story. At 37 years old, I was living in the San Francisco Bay Area, working in my parents’ dream job – an executive in government. For many immigrant parents, my government job meant success: good money, outstanding benefits, a retirement pension and potentially lifelong stability.

But in my heart, I knew it wasn’t my calling. I ended up dreading going to work and getting sick all the time. I stayed in my job because I bought into the idea that this was the best that I could do. “You should be happy,” my friends would say. “You should be grateful,” my family members would tell me. All the while I was miserable and dying inside.

In my pain, I came across a class on spirituality at a Center for Spiritual Living. I discovered words like meaning, purpose and joy. I soaked it all in and took evening classes the next four years to become a licensed spiritual practitioner, all while I worked in government.

One day, a friend visited me at City Hall. She asked, “How is work going?” Without missing a beat, I replied, “I’m leaving my job.” I didn’t plan on saying that. I didn’t even know that I had made that decision. But after those words came out of my mouth, I knew it was time to move on.

Finally, I was ready to walk my talk. The road hasn’t always been easy, but I’m glad to say that it’s been almost 10 years since I left that job and I’m still going.

In my work, I bring my whole self to our sessions, which includes over 25 years of leadership and building sacred community for the spiritual and social transformation of the planet.

Below are some highlights of some my past accomplishments.

Education & Professional Accomplishments

  • I graduated in May 2015 and received my Master of Divinity from the Pacific School of Religion, part of the world-renowned Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley. I was honored with the Koinonia award for my work in strengthening spiritual community and encouraging interfaith connections.
  • After four years of intense study, I became a Licensed Spiritual Practitioner with Centers for Spiritual Living in 2007. I regularly teach accredited classes and workshops for spiritual prosperous living. I serve on the CSL Diversity Training team, where I travel to spiritual centers and lead spiritually-based dialogues on diversity and inclusion in our movement.
  • I served as the Founding Executive Director of Californians for Justice and later as the Executive Director of the Asian Pacific Environmental Network.
  • I served on numerous boards, advisory boards and commissions, including the United States Congressional Black Caucus’ National Environmental Policy Commission, the California Association of Human Relations Organizations, and the Pacific School of Religion’s Center for Spiritual and Social Transformation.

Workshops & Community Engagement

  • I’ve conducted hundreds of workshops throughout the United States and as far as South Africa at the 2001 United Nations World Conference Against Racism NGO Forum. I strongly believe in applying what you learn to life’s pressing challenges.
  • I launched and led a highly successful LGBTQ spirituality program at the Rainbow Community Center, an LGBTQ community center in the San Francisco Bay Area. Many people in the LGBTQ community carry religious shame and are constantly attacked by anti-LGBTQ religious leaders. Sacred space, non-judgment and healing from shame are cornerstones of my work.

Personal Growth

  • I’ve run marathons in San Francisco, New Orleans, Florence (Italy), and Dublin (Ireland), and I completed the world-famous Wildflower Olympic triathlon. For all of these events, I raised thousands of dollars for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.
  • In 2013, I traveled with 12 others on a pilgrimage to India. I witnessed the power of spirituality embedded into everyday living, and the possibilities of living side-by-side with people of different faiths.

This is my spiritual calling: To help people realize that you don’t have to settle in life for less.

I’m a spiritual life coach and teacher because there’s a truth that I learned in my own experience that needs to be told.

It’s a myth that any job is a good job, and it’s a lie that you can’t make money doing what you love. So many people are hurting in the world because of stress with money and their career. It doesn’t have to be this way.

If you’ve reached a point in your life where you’re feeling the call for something more, please feel free to reach out to me. I’d love to hear from you.
