Coming Home – Awakening to Spirit

A support meeting designed for the new and long-term persons in sobriety to ‘reawaken’ our connection to Spirit, or our Higher Power. All are invited, even those who have never had problems with drugs or alcohol, as we can all benefit from the experiences and support of others in our community.

The format of this meeting will be general discussions of the problems we face in life, finding sobriety day-by-day and awakening our consciousness to help improve our lives.

Meeting will consist of meditation and sharing, then learning how gratitude can benefit us, and how to surrender problems to awaken to gratitude. We will learn how to connect with all of our relations for healing.

Facilitated by Gene & Joyce Fournier Stone.

This is a non-smoking facility and meeting.


Join us at 8 a.m. on Fridays  at The Center for Spiritual Living Capistrano Valley

essential_ernest_new_cover_1024x1024 “The Essential Ernest ” Class Tuesday January 10 – March 14

This class shines a new light on the writings of Ernest Holmes. Taught by Rev. Dr. Heather Clark, Spiritual Director, this 10-Week class is Tuesday evening at 7:00 p.m. and is a personal favorite of Dr. Heather.

This class delves into Ernest Holmes’ writings and teachings and how they fit into our lives.   Ernest’s insights and the students’ own reflections are viewed in the light of the masterful—yet seldom discussed—one-page summary of belief: The Declaration of Principles.

Students develop a deeper sense than ever before of the continuity of thought that made Science of Mind what it is today. This class is about you, using Ernest’s words as a foundation from which to build your own future, one belief at a time.
