"Expressing our Beliefs through our association..."
The organization of the Church is structured with independent Local Congregations and their integrated auxiliaries and church-affiliated organizations relating through central church organs (the LifeSpirit Organization) operating through the First Congregation and the Trustees. The central church organs include the Congregation of Elders (all of the Elder Members of the Church meeting at the Annual Meeting in September of each year), the Council of Elders (representatives of the local congregations overseeing joint financial concerns), the Council of Trustees (overseeing the operations of the Church) and the Council of Prophets (the Founders as High Priest and Priestess, overseeing the Doctrine of the Church and the Orders, as Ecclesiastical Supervisors thereof). The Church as a whole, through the Trustees, has authority to ordain Ministers to oversee Local Congregations. The Local Congregations have authority, under the oversight of the Trustees, to license and ordain Minister Practitioners. Provisions are also made in the By Laws for Student Ministers. Theological education is through the LifeSpirit Theological Seminary.

Minister's Code of Conduct from the Certificate of Ministry:
1. Ministers shall always abide by the injunction, "non-aggression against non-aggressors."
2. Ministers shall, when acting on behalf of the Church, practice "Retreat from the Evils of the World" and not seek confrontation with the instrumentalities of coercion.
3. Ministers shall be guided by the knowledge that Illumination is the Goal of the Free; they shall expose illusion, coercion and falsity, condemning these as violations of the LifeSpirit.
4. Ministers shall, when ministering to others, always act with informed consent and shall Do No Harm.

Samples of such rituals can be found in The LifeSpirit Commentaries, the compilation of early LCC publications, Comments. This 170k .htm file is bookmarked and indexed. You will find articles on sacraments and ritual and, in its appendix, the following:
Ho'Oponopono of the Spirit of Life
(a variation on the traditional Huna cleansing ritual) - Comments.htm - HoOp
Heart Chakra Opening Dance - Comments.htm - Heart
Wedding Ceremony - Comments.htm - Wed
Circle of Light Ritual - lightform.html
We have also published a personal spiritual Clearing Ritual, Clearing.html.
Our Ritual (Instructions) for passing from this Life into
the Other is found in
The Book of Passages, BofP.htm.
The Circle of Light Ritual is the fundamental LifeSpirit Ritual, and the Making of the Circle has been repeated hundreds of times by Church communicants at many diverse locations, including, of course, the Crystal Dragon Circle medicine wheel at the LifeSpirit Center parsonage, TriPod Rock, while circling the Rock - www.tripodrock.org, and at the Moment of the Harmonic Convergence Sunrise in 1987...
