Meet Our Staff
Rev. Judith Catalano
Director of Spiritual Training & Clairvoyant Program
Like most children, I loved to play and laugh. I had boundless energy and no pain. I had an active, vivid imagination and played with invisible friends that apparently only I could see. I often experienced lighthearted, encouraging conversations in my head with God, and was brimming with enthusiasm for all of the possibilities that my life has to offer. I was a psychic child.
I remember vividly, at 14 years old walking along the creek bank in the glow of a May’s morning sun, when I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I grew up. “It’s so easy”; I told myself; “I’m going to teach people how to be happy and light!” The rest is history.
Like all of the staff, I’ve had years of spiritual training, classes, and programs in clairvoyance, healing, and teaching. Back in 2010, I observed the great wealth of information that the South Bay psychic teaching staff had to offer, and called us all together to create and manifest our own spiritual awareness and healing center called the Community Church for Spiritual Growth (CCSG) and its seminary, the San Jose Psychic Institute (SJPI).
I invite you to come in and check it out for yourself; just remember to...come as a child.

Rev. Marc Shargel
Teacher, Founder, President of the Board of Directors of the Community Church for Spiritual Growth
I have been a clairvoyant reader over 35 years and a spiritual teacher for 30. Learning and practicing spiritual and psychic tools has changed my life. While I enjoy reading auras, it’s also rewarding to teach it. Aura reading allows me to understand the gifts and challenges of another person. By sharing this perspective, I can help others increase their self-knowledge, and choose better options for themselves. When I see obstacles that confront someone else, I can see my own more clearly, and when I see a path they might take around those obstacles, I may discover one for myself. Receiving a reading offers the possibility of an epiphany. Over time, doing readings guarantees it. Reading auras can bring a profound self-awareness. Teaching brings another layer of understanding, and I enjoy showing others a route to discover their own truth.
The most extraordinary journeys I’ve had are through meditations called “One-to-One... a one to one contact between the cosmic and a living soul.” One-to-One meditations allow one to explore his/her essential nature, beyond the boundaries of physical genetics, birth, and death. Exploring my personal universe, and guiding others as they explore theirs, has provided my deepest satisfaction.
Other than California and the United States Rev. Marc Shargel has taught in the Netherlands and Germany.
