TREATMENT AND MEDITATION – Spiritual Practices for Daily Living
This course focuses on the student developing lifetime habits of meditation and Spiritual Mind Treatment (affirmative prayer). Spiritual Mind Treatment for oneself is reviewed and strengthened, and then students advance to treating (affirmatively praying) for other people.
This course is a continuing spiritual journey in which one explores the relationship of God and humankind; the inner life of thought and feeling; and one’s powerful and co-creative nature. We create a safe and creative environment for you to learn and practice what you learn. Most of all… You’ll have fun!
You will learn to:
- Design a pattern of daily living which builds sound personal habits for spiritual practice
- Turn thought into values, have interactions and spiritual partnerships for a better personal life
- Walk always in the awareness of the ever pervading presence of Spirit
*The prerequisite for this course is Foundations.
This is where it all begins! Foundation is the entry-level class in the study of the Science of Mind. You will be introduced to the basics of the Science of Mind, Meditation, Spiritual Mind Treatment, Visioning and other Universal Spiritual Principles and Practices.
Each week will consist of the exploration of spiritual principles and spiritual practices that support those principles. You will learn to use the creative process as well as powerful and practical tools to “change your thinking, change your life” and you’ll experience this adventure with like-minded people.
In addition to reading and writing exercises each week, there are guided meditations and exercises to assist you in applying, embracing and incorporating Science of Mind Principles in your own life.
*This class is a required prerequisite to all other classes.
THE ESSENTIAL ERNEST HOLMES
This course is a loving tribute to Dr. Ernest Holmes and all the wisdom he brought to our world. Ernest Holmes founded the international Religious Science movement and wrote The Science of Mind and numerous other books on metaphysics. He also founded the international monthly periodical, Science of Mind Magazine, which has been in continuous monthly publication since 1927 and has influenced millions of people. His Science of Mind teaching, recognized today as one of the leading viewpoints in modern metaphysics, is a spiritual philosophy that people throughout the world have come to know as a positive, supportive approach to life.
Now you have the opportunity to take a journey through his life and look at the fundamental documents that influenced him to help to transform millions of peoples lives.
Ernest Holmes’ love of people and his ability to see past their problems into the heart of their eternal being, blends modern psychology with humankind’s limitless ability to choose what to think. This course enables students to understand this on a new level and therefore make changes in their lives.
During your time, you will have the opportunity to go into deep meditative prayer in which you can examine some of the core beliefs that you hold within and really connect with the inner Truth of who you are. Truly feeling this connection for yourself will remind you of what you already have felt and known. You are a part of something much bigger!
Our Licensed Spiritual Coach will walk you through guided exercises and you’ll have a chance to share with a group of other spiritual seekers just like yourself. Gather with others and see the demonstrations happen by applying some of these fundamental principles.
*Foundations of Science of Mind is a prerequisite for this class.
PRACTITIONER STUDIES PROGRAM
Practitioner Training Year 1 – A 30 week course
Answer the deeper purpose that is calling you. Learning spiritual tools is not only an educational experience, it is one of true transformation. Find not only a deeper understanding of who you are, but also develop and manifest your inner calling out into the world.
The first year of Professional Practitioner Studies is devoted to self-awareness and healing where necessary. The year is divided into three terms, consisting of ten weeks each, with studies focused in the following areas:
Term 1 – How Life Gets to Be the Way It Is,
Term 2 – Living a Life of Choice,
Term 3 – Living Life Fully.
Each term will include treatment, meditation, reading, writing, journaling, experiential activities, a term paper, and a final examination.
In order to be eligible for entry into the Professional Practitioner Studies Program, the student must have completed all required courses, as specified in CSL’s Policies and Procedures Manual. All certificate courses must be completed within the preceding five years of enrolling into Practitioner Studies. If more than five years has elapsed, then that course must be retaken. For example, if more than five years has elapsed since taking Foundations, the course must be retaken. No certificated course older than five years will be counted as meeting any requirement for entering Practitioner Studies.
Practitioner Training Year 2 – A 30 week course
The second year of professional practitioner studies is about “The Life of the Professional Practitioner.” It focuses on the consciousness, skills, and responsibilities of the Practitioner, and the relationship of the Practitioner to the Principles we teach, to the client, to the process in healing, to the spiritual center, to the community and to the world.
There is a written examination at the end of the year, which is the first step in the licensing process. Upon passing the written exam, licensing candidates proceed to an oral examination by a panel of ministers and practitioners. After successfully passing the oral examination, the individual is licensed by the United Centers for Spiritual Living. The individual is then ready to serve as a licensed Professional Practitioner for their spiritual community. They are also licensed to conduct private spiritual coaching sessions as an established business for themselves.
A license is valid for two years. Licenses are then renewed every two years upon validation of 250 hours of service, referred to as Continuing Licensing Units (CLU’s) and 35 hours of Continuing Education Units (CEU’s).
