New Vision Center for Spiritual Living

 

 

Science of Mind Classes

The Value of Spiritual Education

In many spiritual traditions of the past, classes within the church were limited to Bible authority training and church doctrine. Today New Vision Center for Spiritual Living is dedicated to not only general spiritual education and life enhancement classes but also personal spiritual development at the deepest levels of body, mind, and spirit.

We invite you to make your own spiritual education a dedication and commitment worthy of the “Being of Light” that you are; join us for these marvelous studies, spiritual practices, and dialogues. Each class includes reading and written assignments plus extensive conversation and experiential exercises in the weekly sessions.

The following classes are presented on a rotational basis throughout each year to educate and support students in the arts of meditation, healing prayer, positive mental maintenance, compassionate living, loving communications, financial mindfulness, and the direct application of wisdom from many traditions.

Trained thought is far more powerful than untrained
-- Ernest Holmes

Our Classes :

Why do we keep avoiding the “the bestselling book in the world”?  How about having a “New Thought” about Judeo-Christian Bible and what it offers to your life? This is a class of exploration, of self-serving discovery, and challenging dialogue about some of our most basic beliefs as human beings. Are you up to the scrutiny? Through class dialogue, group and personal meditations, written journaling, and meaty research you have the opportunity to release some of the negative experiences of your previous spiritual education via the Bible and to unearth a new richness of resource for the rest of your life. Come join the discovery!

Come join the grand discovery of the many teachings and components that comprise the Science of Mind teaching. What if we said, "Ernest Holmes is not the Founder of Science of Mind." 

What?  Yes, this is correct!  In his own words, Ernest Holmes reminded people over and over again that this science has always existed, and that he was just the one who "put something together".

Holmes' works and writings were influenced by great philosophers and other remarkable individuals who all were curious and enthusiastic students of the mysteries of nature and the laws which govern the universe. 

This class will whisk you through a rich and enlightening history of New Thought philosophies with an opportunity for you to get to know many of the distinguished current teachers of our movement who are still teaching teachers.  You are their latest student.  Learn well, so as to live better.

“I didn’t agree to that!”

Ah, but you did. The majority of our lives are created un-consciously through the nature of what we are thinking and feeling rather than through what we think we are saying. It’s time to make some new agreements with yourself and with the world you are creating every moment. What agreements have you made with yourself about who you are, what you feel, what you believe and how to behave? We will identify and explore these agreements.

Where did Ernest Holmes get that idea? Three individuals had great influence on Holmes’ writings: Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emma Curtis Hopkins, and Thomas Troward. Each one gave him a key piece to his philosophy: Emerson taught him about “Soul”. Hopkins gave him a deeper understanding of “Mysticism”. Judge Troward aided Holmes in understanding the workings of “the Law”.  Join the dialogue on these three authors and their influences on Holmes’ writing. You will compare their ideas and wrestle sometimes with finding the truest application of their truths to your daily life. This course is a giant conversation!
