on Education at Om Center for Spiritual Living
"As we study our own being, we begin to deduce the
nature of God."
—The Science of Mind, p. 79
Center for Spiritual Living offers
classes that will offer you and opportunity to expand your knowledge of spiritual principles and to gain practical spiritual
tools for everyday use. In addition to learning about the Science of Mind 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 from many different backgrounds.
Our denomination offers a series of core classes that provide not only an essential understanding
of the Science of Mind, but also a pathway to possible licensing as a professional Science of Mind Practitioner or Minister.
Our teachers are experienced practitioners or ministers
of Science of Mind (SOM) who love to teach and share the power that these teachings have to change lives. Classes combine
experiential exercises with explanation of the principles of SOM. The home study is designed to inspire deeper understanding
and love of spiritual principles and practical application.
classes have prayer pods or partnerships which help anchor students in loving support and transformative practice. Many lifelong
friendships have begun in our classrooms. Come and join us as we explore and experience the transformation that Science of
Mind can bring to every life!
There are 4 terms
in our education calendar with classes beginning in winter, spring, summer and fall. Registration begins four weeks prior
to class start.
The Core Curriculum is developed by the Education Department of Centers for Spiritual Living. Core classes are
8 or 10 weeks in duration—one three-hour class per week. The Foundation of Science of Mind Class is
the study of our core spiritual principles with practical applications for everyday life. Foundations is a prerequisite for
all other Core classes. While open to all students, these classes also comprise the required course of study for future Science
of Mind Practitioners and Ministers.
Enrichment Classes are designed to be practical, and to meet the community desire for
a variety of ongoing educational opportunities. They offer an intellectual, emotional, and spiritual inquiry into an array
of exciting and topical subjects. Like our Core Classes, Spiritual Enrichment Classes are taught by practitioners and
ministers who are certified instructors. There are no prerequisites for these classes.
Advanced Consciousness Studies (formerly
Practitioner I and Practitioner II training) comprise two (30 week) classes designed to lead students to a deeper understanding
of spiritual principles and the ability to apply them in their daily lives. Year two focuses on training students to
be spiritual counselors. These classes are the final course requirements for students who want to pursue licensing as Centers
for Spiritual Living Practitioners.
Workshops offered on a variety of topics are generally
shorter in duration (1-5 sessions), and draw a variety of presenters from within and outside of the Om community.
There are no prerequisites for workshops.
Here is what some students have said about the classes offered:
"I wanted something to change and through classes I realized I needed
to be the change I wanted to see."
"I love coming to class, I met lots of wonderful people and learned a lot about myself."
"Science of Mind principles are simple, and yet demand daily
practice and application. When I was willing to do the work, that's when new and great manifestations started occurring in
"Science of Mind saved
my life. No kidding!. Through learning how to think I really did learn how to live a full rich life "
"Classes keep me growing. When I am involved in classes
I continually work my practices and learn more about myself, which reawakens within me my Divine greatness
"Seek and ye shall find. Well, classes gave me
the permission to see with new eyes and to seek from within myself for the answers and the love I desired."
