Mary Ellen’s Story

A life dedicated to spiritual awakening

As a spiritual teacher, healer, author, and clairvoyant reader, Mary Ellen Flora has helped thousands get in touch with their spiritual awareness and abilities. She has dedicated her life to teaching others that they are spirit and a part of God, and teaching techniques to assist in spiritual awakening.

Throughout her life, Mary Ellen has used her clairvoyant abilities to see auras; to see and communicate with spirit; to heal and to teach. Since 1976, she has been teaching classes in meditation, healing, the use of clairvoyance and many other spiritual abilities.

Training spiritual teachers

Mary Ellen makes learning techniques to meditate a fun and life-long journey. She has trained spiritual teachers and readers, many of whom continue to read and to teach others what they have learned.

Her teachings lead the student within, to discover their personal ability to create consciously as spirit. As she reflects the light that is uniquely her own, she encourages everyone else to do the same.

The path to found CDM was a natural one

Mary Ellen was born in Virginia in 1944. Her awareness of herself, the spirit, and her love of God led her through many life experiences. She had the opportunity to represent her home state of Virginia at the YMCA World Youth Conference in high school when 15-years-old. She received a BA in Sociology from Queens University in Charlotte, NC, and continued on to do graduate work in Education and Counseling at Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR.

Mary Ellen spent many years working with youth which included teaching pre-kindergarten in Oakland, CA, and serving as a Youth Program Director of the YMCA in San Francisco’s Mission District. Mary Ellen also lived abroad, teaching junior high and high school at the Singapore American School where her adventures in South East Asia continued to broaden her world view.

Founding CDM

After returning to the US, Mary Ellen completed the Seminary and was ordained a minister of the Church of Divine Man in Berkeley, CA. Mary Ellen’s commitment to spiritual teachings led to the creation and growth of the Church of Divine Man in the Pacific NW. In 1976, she co-founded CDM with her late husband, M.F. “Doc” Slusher, in WA state and then in Oregon, USA and throughout Canada.

Mary Ellen also founded CDM Spiritual Center as the teaching arm of CDM, and CDM Publications to present her spiritual writings to the world.

Spiritual Works

As an internationally renowned author, Mary Ellen has written the Key Series books, and their companion audios, which teach simple spiritual techniques on meditation, healing, clairvoyance, and chakras. She has also written the Energy Series books that describe how energies can be used to create desired change.

Mary Ellen’s current works also include Angels Don’t Need Wings, as well as various articles and guided meditations. All of her works are currently available through the CDM Spiritual Center Store.

Today, Mary Ellen lives in the Pacific Northwest and continues to teach people locally and worldwide through her publications, online classes, and special events.

“Mary Ellen is such a unique teacher and not what you’d expect for someone who is such a gifted and respected spiritual educator and author. She infuses her classes, meditations, psychic readings, writings and interactions with optimism, joy and laughter so that everything on your own spiritual journey feels possible.”
