Foundations of Science of Mind


This class is a required pre-requisite to all other online classes.

seed progressionThis is the entry-level class in the study of the Science of Mind. You will be introduced to the basics of the Science of Mind, Meditation, Spiritual Mind Treatment, Visioning and other Universal Spiritual Principles and Practices.

Each week will consist of the exploration of spiritual principles and spiritual practices that support those principles. You will learn to use the creative process as well as powerful and practical tools to “change your thinking, change your life” and you’ll experience that adventure with like-minded people from all over the world.

In addition to reading and writing exercises each week, there are guided meditations and exercises to assist you in applying, embracing and incorporating Science of Mind Principles in your own life.

If you belong to a CSL affiliated center or community or live closer than 30 miles to a center or community, you need to have your Minister’s emailed permission to enroll in an online class. Please do not enroll or pay until you have that permission. Ministers are often delighted to give you permission to study online if you aren’t able to attend local classes.

If you are not a member of a CSL church or community and live 30 miles away from a church or further, you do not need a Minister’s permission.
