About Our Classes

Our classes give you what you need to expand your knowledge of New Thought Ancient Wisdom/Science of Mind spiritual principles and to gain practical spiritual tools for everyday use. In addition to learning about our philosophy and how to apply it, being in a class is one of the best ways to enter more deeply into our spiritual community. It is a wonderful opportunity to meet and get to know people of like-mind.

Our teachers are experienced and love to share the power that these teachings have to change lives. Classes combine experiential exercises with explanation how to establish a spiritual practice. Many lifelong friendships have begun in our classrooms. Come and join us as we explore and experience the transformation spiritual practice can bring to every life!

Classes are typically 8 or 10 weeks in length and begin in January, March,  June, and September. Registration begins prior to the first class.
