Called by love is a wonderful nonprofit organization. But Marj's real accomplishment is building a gathering place out of love and relatedness that welcomes everyone. She is amongst a small but growing number of, what Alan Watkins and Iman Stratenus in their book Crowdacracy, call ‘guardians of the process.' She facilitates a physical and subtle space where we see and are seen at the level of our essence. Within this "space" we explore and nurture what is indivisibly unique in our individual and collective selves. This is no small thing. We begin to experience the simple, yet life-giving magic of relating Soul to Soul; an uncommon, yet exceedingly generous way to live. Conversations are meaningful and joyful because the divine and its emerging wisdom bubble up and through everyone’s authentic voice. This is practical and transformational spirituality and it is a privilege to be part of its unfolding.
I couldn't resist sharing about the first Called by Love Institute Book... ;) the book was just published and written by the founder of Called by Love Institute, Marj Britt. I feel it is adding an important piece of the puzzle (well, many pieces of the puzzle actually) from the mission of this non-profit to "Harness the Power of Love". Yes, the book is inviting us to “bring our life into the curriculum” through each chapter and code of co-creation and unveil, connect and continue to co-create more of the aspects of our Own Sacred Love Story. Becoming more aware of our “Golden Threads”, individually and collectively. Regardless of where we live in the world. I am truly delighted that all those who intuitively feel “Called by Love”, even without knowing at first what it might mean for them, have a new way to join us on the journey. You have an open invitation to join our growing worldwide community... maybe we will see you in June in Tustin, CA for the book launch & celebration event with Andrew Harvey (June 9-12) and/or online on one of our monthly community calls? That would be wonderful. Attached pictures: Chapter 1: Manifesto of Love / Marj, the author holding the book, and Site 6 in the Meditation Gardens, gorgeous with the one-of-a-kind stained-glass art created by Bud, Marj’ son, that you can see on the cover of the book. With Love :)
My first encounter with Called by Love Institute and Dr Marj Britt, founder, began in October 2012. Little did we know then that less than a year later, I would be joining the volunteer team as we were preparing to launch the first worldwide “Living, Loving, Legacy” telesummit with some incredible master teachers of consciousness (a treasure that is still available to all at no cost through the recordings). I have been part of Called by Love ever since…
At a personal level, participating in the teleclasses and the monthly intensives held in the sanctuary at Unity of Tustin (the site of the beautiful Meditation Gardens and labyrinth that were build under the visionary leadership of Marj and the local community), has been, and continues to be, a tremendous support, providing opportunities for growth and transformation, in moving forward at transitional times in my life.
Thanks to Called by Love and Marj not only have I gone deeper in my own journey of transformation and consciousness, I also have the pleasure and honor to journey and connect with others who are “Called by Love” locally, in California, and also in other places worldwide (Europe, Australia, Canada and more). It is a precious community and I believe it is just the beginning… We are holding the intention that many will join us from all over the world as there will be more and more virtual classes, incl. about going deep in the understanding and application of the Codes of Co-Creation presented by Marj, and other topics. All the “Called by Love” courses are now on a “Love Offering” (donation) basis, so, all are and will be welcome to participate. From anywhere. Harnessing the Power of Love.
You might be surprised to know that up to date 100% of the team has been working totally through Selfless Service (100% volunteer based), called by our mission, “Called by Love”. This group is holding a very high level of consciousness. I feel blessed to have been divinely guided to Marj, and Called by Love, for what it is bringing to me personally, as well as the opportunity to contribute into the world in doing something that is deeply meaningful and helping raise consciousness through Love. I am honored to continue to volunteer, incl as part of the Board, as the Executive Director.
I met Marj Britt in 1994 at Unity of Tustin, where she served as Senior Minister.
I was struck by her commitment and devotion to the spiritual growth and development of every Soul who walked through the door.
She is a visionary, a mystic, a bearer of light dedicated to elevating consciouness and bringing forth healing, truly Called by Love.

Dearest Chaya, we thank you dearly for what you shared here, and all that you share with all of us at Called by Love. Your contributions and shares are making our exchanges so much richer. Thank you for bringing your Light, Love, Presence and Insights at the events! With our deep Love & Gratitude!
I began pursuing a serious spiritual path years ago. It was a solitary endeavor as I didn't
believe that a church or minister existed that would have the openness, acceptance or
explanations for what I was learning and experiencing.
Then in 2003, I attended Unity of Tustin with Marj Britt. In listening to Marj that first Sunday,
I discovered a most spiritual person whose vast knowledge not only included the mystical
and metaphysical but all the world's major religions.
Through her ministry and classes, I became aware of books, authors and speakers that
expanded my awareness into areas beyond which I could have ever imagined.
Since her retirement five years ago, Marj. founded "Called by Love" which conducts monthly
Intensives at the church and regular "on line" calls. Here she continues to teach, guide and
council. I have been with this project since the beginning and would strongly recommend
it for anyone seeking spiritual growth and understanding.

Called By Love Institute and the Divine work of Dr. Marj Britt and friends provides a platform of Love both locally and globally, The last seven years, for me has been an incredible journey into authentic Heart centered awareness, where I became aware of my own Sacred Love Story through Marj's mystical teachings. As an organization Called By Love contributes to raising the vibration of Love in the Universe, by lifting the collective Heart of Humanity.

Thank you so much dear Coral!!! We are blessed by your presence and all your contributions with (and for) Called by Love Institute, including the precious shares of your beautiful Sacred Love Story, and, Love Legacy. Thank you also for making Site 4 of the UoT meditation Gardens come alive this year in a brighter and expanded way. With our Love!
My experience from attending some of the Called by Love calls and a live event in Tustin has been that the facilitators ~ volunteers have a genuine interest in me and everyone else who participates. They made me feel fully heard and are exceptionally insightful. It made me feel special: like I (and each one of us) matter at a very deep level. I sense that the facilitators have done extensive work on themselves, which allows them to be present and create a space in which you feel comfortable and safe. A space in which you feel at your best. From that place the insights that come to you/through you are extraordinary. The content is soul stirring/fulfilling , rich and deep. Having Called by Love as a charitable venture is a God sent for the world. A beautiful mixture of people & content that inspires you to depths that can only be reached because of the synergy of the people that are so gifted to bring forth things in/from you. And… they do it under the umbrella of Love!

Thank you, dear Michelle, for your heartfelt and thoughtful review and for sharing with others about your profound experiences with Called by Love. We are deeply touched by it, as we are by your beautiful presence and insights when you join us. Please receive our Love & Gratitude all the way to the East Coast ;)
I found a home here for my Spiritual Development. I was encouraged, to raise my awareness of the power of Love, with the gentle guidance by a profound teacher, Dr. Rev. Marj Britt. I increased my faith through self discovery, personal experiences and active participation, far removed from the dogmas of my previous religious indoctrination. "Called by Love" is a community of like minded souls who share in a safe environment, creating a "We Space" of Love and support, for the practice of living in the truth and surrendering to the mystery of our own Divinity. You are allowed to question everything, how refreshing.
The Institute invites world renowned Spiritual Teachers as guests, to offer a broad spectrum of spiritual understanding. Although the leaning is Christian, its approach is very non-denominational and makes room for all faiths.
For me the attraction is the loving support and a place to really observe, examine and share our experiences of the Spiritual Principles at play, realizing the power of love within each one of us.
I would encourage all those seeking to explore their spiritual nature in an open minded community, than this is the place for you.
Thank you "Called by Love" for the charitable work you do.

Thank you so much for sharing this review and your support for Called by Love Institute!!! With our Love & Gratitude!
The life changing experiences I have had from attending Called By Love Institute and their various programs and events has impacted me far more than I could have ever imagined. The information that is presented by Dr. Marj Britt and her co-presenters has a depth of meaning far greater than would be first expected, realized and eventually understood. Whether it be through their web programs, attendance at live intensives or participation in the weekly Wednesday live-calls: I have never been disappointed in carving out time in my hectic schedule to connect with the variety of opportunities to witness the insight and wisdom that is offered. My expectations are consistently met and more often than not---exceeded!

Called By Love creates a warm atmosphere of acceptance, unconditional love, and spiritual awareness. It is an environment where hearts are connected and spirits are raised collectively. This is a fabulous place to explore more about yourself spiritually, emotionally, while meeting others on similar journeys who radiate unconditional love in every moment.
