The vitality of Spirit is Self-existent, Self-Propelling. As I become conscious of my Oneness with Good, I am filled with enthusiasm and a sense of energy and vitality.

~ Ernest Holmes ~

Ernest Shurtleff Holmes was an American New Thought writer, teacher, and leader. He was the author of The Science of Mind and numerous

other metaphysical books. The principles he taught as "Science of Mind" have inspired and influenced many generations of metaphysical students and teachers.

July Newsletter


"Spiritual experience is deep, calm and self-assertive; it is the result of actually realizing that Presence which binds all together in one complete Whole. This experience comes in the stillness of the Soul, when the outer voice is quiet, when the tempest of human strife is abated; it is a quickening of the inner [Self] to an eternal reality."

- Science of Mind, 

The Complete Edition, pg. 608

LEADERSHIP MESSAGE


Practitioner Training


“Anyone who follows the principles and engages in the practices of Science of Mind is a practitioner, (lowercase p). Those who are specifically trained and licensed to be spiritual coaches and to use these principles and practices for another, we call professional Licensed Practitioners (capital P).” Petra Weldes


By this point, you’ve probably figured out that the spiritual path is not for the faint of heart. Buddhist teacher Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche offers little comfort when he says, “My advice to you is not to undertake the spiritual path. It is too difficult, too long, and is too demanding. I suggest you ask for your money back and go home. This is not a picnic. It is really going to ask everything of you. So, it is best not to begin. However, if you do begin, it is best to finish.”


Spiritual teacher Adyashanti seems to agree. “Make no mistake about it—enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing through the facade of pretense. It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.”


“But does it always have to be this way? Sure, the scalpel of truth can sting, but you must also balance the growth edges of the spiritual path with the nurturing care, comfort, and gentle love that also arise on the spiritual path.” Lissa Rankin


I have completed Term 1 of the first year of a two-year final Practitioners training course. I have completed several previous courses fulfilling the requirements leading to the training. The above quotes are very applicable to my experience in Practitioner training so far. Many of the activities I have participated in are compared to peeling away the layers of an onion….and it does produce tears! My study required a fair amount of time examining how life gets to be the way it is. I personally enjoyed examining my beginning influences and life journey. The difficult times are hard to face sometimes, but uncovering the garbage and seeing how it influences, or hopefully no longer influences, my mind processes was very rewarding. Each week I was assigned to write a thought paper and/or a spiritual treatment. I love the process of spiritual mind treatment and have gained such an appreciation for the power of this form of prayer. The very week we talked about coaching someone with a terminal illness, I was called upon by a dear friend who was facing a cancer death sentence and was able to give peace and guidance with prayer treatment and coaching. I love and value this work and look forward to continuing my training with our new minister. I encourage everyone to consider taking courses in the future to be taught by our Minister and/or Practitioners. The effort is so worth it in the spiritual growth achieved. Be well.

I send prayers of love and blessings to you all,
