  • NEW THOUGHT | RBCSL

    WHAT IS NEW THOUGHT Despite its name, New Thought isn't actually new. New Thought tradition originated in the 1880s and draws inspiration from the philosophical idealism of Classical Greece and the Transcendentalist Movement of the 1830s. It's origins go back to classical Greek philosophy and P. P. Quimby, the founder of New Thought, even claimed that the movement had rediscovered Jesus' healing methods. New Thought combines philosophical idealism with a practical focus on addressing humanity's challenges and promoting healing. ​ Throughout its history, New Thought has been shaped by influential figures such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thomas Troward, Emma Curtis Hopkins, Phineas Quimby, and Walt Whitman. Present-day authors who embody New Thought teachings include Michael Bernard Beckwith, Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, Byron Katie, Caroline Myss, Gregg Braden, Eckhart Tolle, and many others. ​ The teachings of New Thought encompass the wisdom of various spiritual traditions across time. Our community welcomes individuals from all spiritual paths and those who are seeking a spiritual path of their own. We embrace the ancient wisdom of diverse spiritual traditions as we strive to create a nurturing space for everyone.

  • ERNEST HOLMES | RBCSL

    WHO WAS ERNEST HOMES? Ernest Holmes is the founder of Religious Science whose spiritual philosophy is known as “The Science of Mind.” Born in 1887 in Lincoln, Maine, Ernest Holmes left his school and family at the age of 15 to move to Boston, Massachusetts, where he discovered Mary Baker Eddy's Science and Health as well as Christian Science. In 1912, he relocated to Venice, California, joining his brother Fenwicke and immersing himself in the study of various influential writers such as Thomas Troward, Ralph Waldo Emerson, William Walker Atkinson, and Christian D. Larson. Holmes married Hazel Durkee Foster in 1927, and following years of touring and speaking engagements, he settled in Los Angeles to complete his seminal work, The Science of Mind, which was published in 1926. Holmes founded the Institute of Religious Science and School of Philosophy, published Science of Mind magazine, and continually expanded his speaking venues. Over time, his organization underwent several name changes and is now known as The Centers for Spiritual Living. Holmes' teachings and philosophy continue to resonate, offering a profound spiritual path, insights into our connection with the Universe, and a joyful approach to daily living. Ernest Holmes' Beliefs "I believe in God, the Living Spirit Almighty; one, indestructible, absolute and self-existent Cause. This One manifests itself in and through all creation, but is not absorbed by its creation. The manifest universe is the body of God; it is the logical and necessary outcome of the infinite self-knowingness of God." Dr. Ernest Holmes - Founder of Religious Science
