Seaside Center for Spiritual Living's philosophy is based on the Science of Mind. This philosophy was developed in the early 20th century by writer and lecturer Ernest Holmes. Holmes studied truths from all of the world's religious traditions and spiritual paths and developed a fresh new way of looking at ourselves and how we fit into our world.
The Science of Mind is the study of Life and the nature of the laws of thought; the conception that we live in a spiritual Universe; that God is in, through, around and for us. —Ernest Holmes
Some of the principles we teach are:
There is one power and presence in the world, which we call God.
God is all there is, so we are by nature a part of God, filled with and surrounded by God.
As we become conscious of this truth, we join in partnership with God to influence our lives for good, whether for improved health, finances, relationships, or simple happiness.
We do this by learning what the spiritual laws are that govern the universe and how to work with them to accomplish our needs, wants and goals.
Our Spiritual Practitioners
What is a Licensed Spiritual Practitioner?
A Practitioner is one who endeavors to heal him/herself and others through the recognition of the creative power of Mind and the ever availability of Good. Practitioners are individuals who have been trained in the art, skill and science of Affirmative Prayer. A Practitioner seeks to demonstrate the power of spiritual realization in everyday affairs and believes in Divine guidance. A Practitioner sees through whatever condition someone is facing to the spiritual truth of your being, bringing about a change in the circumstance. Practitioners are licensed to practice professionally and are bound by a high code of ethics to respect your privacy.
The last Sunday of the month is the "Wall of Prayer." At the end of each service, members are invited to come and receive a brief prayer for themselves or a loved one from one of the Practitioners. Prayer in this meditative environment creates a synergy that magnifies and deepens the experience of everyone involved.
