Celeste A Frazier

Rev. Celeste interviews Rev. Dr. Raymont Anderson, spiritual leader of the Center for Spiritual Living Greater Baltimore. He's got a passion for self-development, for personal transformation and for self-awakening. His bliss is to be a teacher, a mentor, a speaker, a minister and more! His mission is to educate, elucidate, emancipate and empower people. He teaches workshops and classes and is an author!

Growing up with a fundamental Christian background, he was taught that LGBTQIA people were sinners and abominations. But he is clear that it is just the opposite. He read many books, including "Gay is a Gift" by Salvatore Sapienza (https://www.amazon.com/Gay-Gift-Salvatore-Sapienzabook/dp/B0030ZRZDM/ref=sr_1_1dchild=1&keywords=Gay+Is+A+Gift&qid=1598377726&sr=8-1) so he now knows that being LGBTQIA  is miraculous, marvelous and fantastic and he wants to support people in being bold, unapologetic and magnificent in their gayness. For those who are depressed due to spiritual or religious oppression, he wants to encourage them to shine brightly. Rev. Celeste gave him kudos for facing it head on and she shared her spiritual breakthrough and how she released her self-inflicted racism, sexism and homophobia. Rev. Anderson reminded us of the Audre Lorde quote: “There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.” We are grateful for ministries that support people unconditionally.

Rev. Dr. Raymont Anderson has had an eclectic spiritual path. While being a licensed CSL minister, there is also an intersection where shamanistic training, magic and reiki are some of the tools that assist him in being a better person. After a tumultous series of life challenges (including a death and breakup), he discovered that reiki is a cousin to chi and he studied to become a reiki master to keep his channel clear, keep his chakras open, his consciousness open and his thoughts pristine and life affirming. He intends to keep his cup full.

The discovery of a distant relative who is Native opened up his exploration into shamanism andd to learning about being a medicine person. He was advised to tread gently upon the Earth and do what you are here to do.

Raymont is a retired interpretor for the members of the deaf community. He bridges the gaps to meaningful living by giving access through interpreting for them.

Rev. Celeste complimented him on how he handles racially insensitive colleagues. He learned patience from clueless high school teachers and administrators who thought they could engage Black students by giving them music to dance.

Raymont was the creator of S.T.A.R.S. (Sticking Together Always Results in Success) to support non-hearing people performing in plays. He also created B.E.L.I.E.V.E. (Being Empowered Living Inspired Exemplifying Victory Everyday) bringing the theatrical opportunities to the non-hearing performers.

Rev. Raymont got into martial arts because he was bullied as a child. He saw his first Bruce Lee films (double feature) and he immediately started studying it. He saw martial arts as a spiritual path first and as a way to support his well-being. Fighting was never his intention.

Comic books were his escape from an abusive home. He started using the comic books as modern day mythology, the study of the human journey. We can use the gifts and power for good.

Ray is a visual artist and is ready to re-invent himself, explore creativity from his dreams and share it.

Rev. Celeste shares her poem, "Super Heroes and Human Victories".
