This class presents a new spiritual principle each week and a spiritual practice to support that principle. The Creative Process is introduced at the beginning of the class and then flows through each week, so that the student has the opportunity to see and use the Creative Process at work in each spiritual principle. Students learn how to pray affirmatively and explore their own beliefs about life, while learning the philosophy of the Science of Mind.
Required Text: Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes

Welcome to three weeks of exploring devotion to God in your life through considering the powerful ideas contained in the 16 verses of Chapter 12 of the Bhagavad Gita.  To support our study, we will be reading Eknath Easwaran’s book, A More Ardent Fire, in which he gives clear direction not only for how to understand this Hindu Classic, but also for how we may incorporate it ideas in our daily life. You do not have to complete any homework; all exercises will be completed in class.

Drawing from sources as diverse as Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Aesop, Joseph Campbell, and Jelaluddin Rumi, this course looks at the many life stories in the Bible where we play every character.  Students will learn powerful and effective tools for translation and interpretation of these stories. This section will be focused on the stories of Creation, Abraham, Joseph and Moses. A second section will be offered in Winter 2018 focused on sections of the New Testament.
