Education Ministry Overview

As we study our own being, we begin to deduce the nature of God.
The Science of Mind, p. 79

Classes in Science of Mind give you what you need to expand your knowledge of spiritual principles and to gain practical spiritual tools for everyday use. In addition to learning about the Science of Mind philosophy and how to apply it, being in a class is one of the best ways to enter more deeply into our spiritual community. It is a wonderful opportunity to meet and get to know people from many different backgrounds.

Our teachers are experienced practitioners of Science of Mind who love to teach and share the power that these teachings have to change lives. Classes combine experiential exercises with explanation of the principles of SOM practice. The home study is designed to inspire deeper understanding and love of spiritual principles and practical application.

Many classes have prayer pods or partnerships which help anchor students in loving support and transformative practice. Many lifelong friendships have begun in our classrooms. Come and join us as we explore and experience the transformation that Science of Mind can bring to every life!

Classes are offered in a trimester calendar beginning in January, May, and September. Registration begins in April, August, and November of each year.

The Core Curriculum [see the catalog of classes] is developed by the Education Department of Centers for Spiritual Living using an exciting, contemporary education model through which learners fully experience the spiritual reality of their being. Core classes are 8 to 12 weeks in duration—one three-hour class per week. Core classes focus on areas of study such as History and Philosophy, Consciousness, and Practical Application.

Spiritual Enrichment Courses [click here to see the catalog of courses] are designed to be short (3 to 5 weeks), practical, and to meet the community desire for a variety of ongoing educational opportunities. Each course offers an intellectual, emotional, and spiritual inquiry into an array of exciting and topical subjects. There are no prerequisites.

The complete schedule of classes, class descriptions, tuition assistance, and scholarship applications are available in the Social Hall and reception area. For further information, contact Education Ministry Coordinator, Linda Almeida at or (707) 546-4543, ext. 1010.
