Our current accredited class is underway.

As you enter more deeply into the study of the Science of Mind, you will begin to see how your personal inward search for an understanding of your relationship to God and the Universe eventually brings you to a very important aspect of  the spiritual experience-living as a beneficial presence in the world.

This course helps one delve into and develop the practices of Affirmative Prayer and Meditation.  It is a great introduction to and also an excellent refresher on these profound spiritual practices. The course includes a review of basic Science of Mind Principles.

Length of Course: 10 Weeks

Texts: Journey of Awakening by Ram Dass

Can We Talk To God? by Ernest Holmes

Suggested Tuition: $125.00

Scholarships are available.

Credit toward Professional Practitioner Training

Closed for new enrollments.  Watch for our next class.
