the Path to The Vale
The Ordination of Carol, Linda and Wendy Carman as Spiritualist Ministers
on December 1, 2001, was the culmination of 6 years of study with the Chapel
of Eternal Friendship and The Eternal Light Center of Hope ("ELCOH").
The formation of Kirk o' the Vale in April 2002 was the natural next step.
Kirk o' the Vale was originally chartered by ELCOH and then was organized
and licensed with the State of California as of November 2004. In July 2004,
The Vale Spiritual Healing & Meditation Center was licensed in the State
of Washington in conjunction with Kirk o' the Vale. The physical location
of The Vale and Kirk o' the Vale was set for Port Angeles, Washington early
Co-Founder and Pastor Linda Carman unexpectedly passed away in June 2005
when in Port Angeles looking for a new home. Reverends Carol and Wendy
moved forward with locating in Port Angeles, arriving in late July to begin
renovating the present location at 129 West First Street, Port Angeles, WA
98362. The Gift Shop was opened over Labor Day Weekend, 2005 and the renovations
have continued. The Gift Shop is open Tuesday thru Saturday from 10:00 a.m.
until 6:00 p.m. The Store is also
open Sundays from Noon until 5:00. We are closed on Mondays. Different hours may be in effect during the Summer so check with the Center.
Rev. Carol and Rev. Wendy offer meditation classes, classes in Psychic Development
and card readings. In addition, they are planning for a series of upcoming
free and paid seminars on topics ranging from Reading Auras to Candle Meditation
and various lectures and book-signings by different authors. An energy wellness program is also offered for those who feel in need of wellness management counseling and
