Current and Upcoming Classes
Study the Spiritual Path with Dr. Heather
Dr. Heather starts a new class in April that takes us back to the Science of Mind basics. This class is based on curriculum Dr. Heather created with a team of ministers in the 1990s and, because it’s filled with wisdom and insight, she is ready to bring it back.
Here is what Dr. Heather has to say about this classic class:
The first part of the course is “The Spiritual Path” and introduces the metaphysical student to the basics of spiritual study including affirmation, meditation, and prayer. In addition to the basics, there are some great activities and processes which anyone can incorporate into their daily practices. During this first eight weeks, students will learn spiritual mind treatment/affirmative prayer.
The second 8 weeks continues to emphasize prayer and is titled “The Nature of Effective Prayer.” Affirmative prayer is one of the most powerful tools at our disposal. When we change the consciousness of a thing, we change the entire experience of it. For example, before studying Science of Mind I would often take a victim mind-set when it came to illnesses. Like many people I had two or three colds a year. I was subject to the race consciousness of “flu” season. Since studying the Science of Mind, I have come to understand that nothing happens to me, everything happens through me, by means of me. This is a powerful idea.
If everything comes through me, I must allow or invite the idea of “flu” into my life. As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, rarely is the thing we are experiencing a result of thinking about the illness. In other words, I didn’t get a cold because I thought about “colds;” but rather, when we feel stressed and overextended, we can let a ‘flu” or “cold” into our lives.
- We will learn to pay attention to our thoughts, and make intelligent, self-supporting changes to our thoughts and feelings.
- We will learn to write and use powerful affirmations which will start the creative process by planting a new idea.
- And we will learn to meditate. By getting still and being comfortable with silence, we will more ably hear the voice for God within ourselves.
People’s lives will be transformed. People who are senior students, those who have taken foundation courses many times before, will heighten their awareness of self. And those people who take the class as their very first step down the spiritual path will awaken to their own inner magnificence. People make life-long friendships in Science of Mind classes. You will learn to pray for other people as well as yourself. There is so much good for you… and you ought to have it! I would love to see YOU at class.
Dr. Heather’s class will be offered on Tuesdays, beginning April 3rd, at 6:30 pm. Cost for credit is $240, or you can take the class without credit for a love offering.
YOU Can Heal Your Life
Join Dr. Heather for a new class based on Louise Hay’s best-selling book, “You Can Heal Your Life.” With more than 50 million copies sold, this classic from one of our modern thought leaders will start your new year off right.
Using her book, we will follow Louise’s insight as we explore our beliefs, identify our problems, discover
where they came from, and how to heal them. Every area of life is included – relationships, money, career, success
and our bodies. We will transform ourselves by making our lives an experiment in healing. After all it is true that our current thoughts and feelings create our future and we can change our lives by changing our thinking.
A student of Raymond Charles Barker, Louise Hay used Science of Mind principles to heal nearly every condition. Best known for her work within the AIDS community, Louise built an empire and created a launching pad for today’s mainstream New Thought Movement. She died recently at the age of 90, but her legacy will live on forever.
This 8-week class will be taught on Tuesday evenings and offered on a love offering basis. The content is priceless! Pick up a book in the bookstore or online, please sign up on the kiosk (or online) so there will be sufficient materials for everyone.
January Begins the Inward Journey
Physical healing. Financial abundance. A new relationship. A different perspective.
Do you believe in the power of prayer? If you have ever visited a practitioner in a time of crisis or just to get things moving in a better direction, you know that prayer works and it’s the cornerstone for our teaching.
Every Sunday Dr. Heather asks practitioners to stand and invites the congregation to make an appointment with a practitioner to have a transformed life.
Who are these prayerful people exactly and what did they do to earn the privilege of sitting at the table across from you?
They took a deep and sacred journey into the self, to unearth false beliefs and know the power of God working through them. They are just like you and me, and able to see rightly when we can’t see it for ourselves.
The Inward Journey is so magnificent that some people take it with no intention of becoming licensed, but rather because it’s the next step in their spiritual evolution.
Rev. Pattie will offer the Inward Journey practitioner training starting in January. It’s a 30-week commitment. To embark on the journey you don’t need a passport however you must have the required prerequisite classes. Click here to see if you qualify.
Current practitioners and ministers are encouraged to participate.
