The following is a list of licensed Focus Ministries led by a Centers for Spiritual Living licensed Minister. Each focus ministry represents a unique way of bringing the Science of Mind and Spirit to the world. Some do offer local groups that provide a community that comes together to learn and study our philosophy. Many focus on bringing our teachings to the planet in a more global way.
