Every Thursday Licensed Practitioner Dr. Roni Ellington facilitates a "Study Group" that takes the message of that Sunday and opens the forum for discussion and Q and A opportunities. 

At the end of each month, Nancie Rosenberg and Robin Farinholt host a Movie Night where a "Spiritual" movie is screened and followed by a lively discussion.

March movie:  "Finding Joe - A film about Joseph Campbell's hero's journey"

Upcoming Courses

Class Title: Exploring Roots of Science of Mind

Exploring Roots of the Science of Mind is a transformational course and a fascinating journey through the minds of New Thought luminaries who greatly influenced Ernest Holmes, the founder of Religious Science. Each luminary provides a different spiritual perspective.   Do you want to discover your authentic self? Do you want to help your brain understand what your heart already knows? Do you want to learn to claim your good, while living in a mystical presence? We will discover answers to these questions by exploring the works of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thomas Troward, and Emma Curtis Hopkins.  You will deepen your understanding of the philosophical foundation of Religious Science and other New Thought teachings and be inspired by the power of the written word. Of equal importance, you will focus on how these powerful teachings can be APPLIED to your life today… in the laboratory of your life. This is also an opportunity to continue to develop your own understanding of metaphysics and spirituality.

Past Courses

The Scientific Art of Prayer

The purpose of this class is to provide the tools that will change your life. The Scientific Art of Prayer is that tool. Though the Scientific Art of Prayer uses the same five steps of Affirmative Prayer; Recognition, Unification, Realization, Thanksgiving, and Release, you will learn to no longer just speak your Word, you will be the place through which Word is made flesh. You become the living embodiment of the Spoken Word. Learning to ‘give’ an Affirmative Prayer is working with the Letter of the Law. While living Affirmative Prayer, living as answered prayer, is being in the Spirit of the Law. The main purpose of this class is to demonstrate that your Word is what really creates your reality.  You don’t want to miss this opportunity to deepen your conscious use of the power that is deep within you. Sign up today.

When: Tuesday evenings 6:30 - 9:30 pm, February 2 to March 9th

This is a six-week course

Spiritual Rebel:
A 4-week journey of modern spirituality


“Spiritual Rebel offers wonderful ways to deepen spirituality without compromising your truth. Bowen’s delightful book smashes assumptions and stereotypes while managing deep respect for diverse beliefs. As soon as I finished it, I knew I wanted to read it again and again.”

—Tami Meise, Media Review in Guide for Spiritual Living: Science of Mind Magazine

Course Description:

Chaotic times call for embracing our rebellious sides in service to change. Rather than relying on adherence to a single belief system, Spiritual Rebel encourages you to clarify the beliefs that are personally meaningful for you, redefine unhelpful concepts you might be hanging on to, engage deeply with spiritual practices, and ask curious questions about your higher purpose. Introducing unconventional practices—including virtual forest bathing, yawning, meditating with your pets, and lectio terrestris just to name just a few—this course helps you deepen your spiritual connection in everything that you do.

Tuesdays starting Fall Dates and Times TBA 

Week 1: Rebels unite: Create our sangha and learn about trends in modern spirituality

Week 2: Taking out the sacred trash: Explore your personal codes and convictions

Week 3: Spiritual moments: Try new practices for divine connection

Week 4: Of myths, movies, & motivation: Find inspiration in your heroes and seed a plan for fully embracing your higher purpose
