Foundations of Science of Mind

Mondays, January 10 – March 21, 2022 | 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. MT


Taught by Rev. Ruth Kirby

This class presents a new spiritual principle each week and a spiritual practice to support that principle. The Creative Process is introduced at the beginning of the class and then flows through each week, so that the student has the opportunity to see and use the Creative Process at work in each spiritual principle.

Each week also features the writing of one of our elders as well as one of our contemporaries on the subject at hand. These include Dr. William Hornaday, Dr. Frank Richelieu, Terry Cole Whittaker, Dr. Jesse Jennings, Dr. Kathy Hearn, Dr. Linda McNamar, and many more.
