Roots of Science of Mind
Saturdays, June 6th - August 15th, 2020 // 6:30pm - 9:00pm

“You can’t think your way into right action, but you can act your way into right thinking.”

Bill Wilson



Facilitators: Rev. Michael Heinle and Rev. Donna Baranyay

This ten-week course brings you into a sharper focus of the Science of Mind and Spirit principles by exploring the “soil” in which the ideas of our founder, Dr. Ernest Holmes, took root.

You will savor the richness of the rational, philosophical and mystical concepts contributed by early metaphysical giants: Thomas Troward, Emma Curtis Hopkins, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and others.

It will be a time of consciously walking and talking with Spirit; exploring the ancient wisdom of New Thought; reviewing the principles of healing, success, and prosperity: and continuing the dynamic process of self-discovery.


  • Saturdays, June 6th to August 15th, 2020
  • 1:00pm to 3:30pm
  • Cost: $125
  • Questions? Call the church office at 562-598-3325.

This class will be held on Zoom.
