Centers for Spiritual Living is an organization of over 500 spiritual communities that provide spiritual tools to transform our personal lives and help make the world a better place. At Centers for Spiritual Living, our spiritual communities teach powerful principles for personal and global transformation, honoring all paths to God. We help people experience a personal relationship with the creator; promote a community of tolerance, understanding and respect; provide classes, programs, prayer and meditation; and advocate a safe spiritual community of like-minded people interested in living a spiritual life.
Science of Mind (also referred to as Religious Science) is the core teaching of the Centers for Spiritual Living. Science of Mind is a philosophy that integrates spiritual truths with science and physics. Simply put, Science of Mind teaches the unity of all life. Intentions and ideas flow through a field of consciousness, which actually affects and creates the world around us. This idea is common to most major religions and is supported by the teachings of psychology and quantum physics.In Science of Mind, we believe that the secret to living a successful life is to consciously choose positive and productive thoughts. Put another way, “As you think, so you become.”
It is the intention of the Centers for Spiritual Living to use Science of Mind principles as a force for good in our world by transforming personal lives.Our faith is not a revelation of some particular individual or of any one group. Rather, it is a correlation of the most empowering truths found in religious texts and the discoveries of science. We start with the simple proposition that God, known to many by many names and traditions, is an immediate Presence not only around but also within every person.We believe in a power greater than ourselves. We believe that an invisible law, force, and intelligence governs everything in the universe. We, as individuals, endeavor to discover our immediate relationship to that Power and become partners in Its activities.
“The Science of Mind is the study of Life and the nature of the laws of thought; the conception that we live in a spiritual Universe; that God is in, through, around and for us.”
- Dr. Ernest Holmes
