A Message from Reverend Karen

Our Vision Statement: We are a loving, joy-filled community, honoring the many paths to God as we learn and live the Science of Mind Principles.


Welcome to our web page and enjoy a peek at all the happenings at the West Valley Center for Spiritual Living in Peoria, Arizona. We are known for our BIG Love and belief in infinite possibilities. We invite you to open to that love, even as you peruse this site.

Centers for Spiritual Living is an organization devoted to promoting global transformation through personal transformation. We teach that there is a Power and Intelligence in the Universe that is greater than we are, it is a Power for Good, and we can learn to awaken to its Presence and thereby live a Spirit-centered life.

What is the origin of 'Science of Mind'?

Science of Mind is part of The New Thought Movement. New Thought is a spiritual movement which developed in the United States during the late 19th century and emphasizes metaphysical beliefs. It consists of a loosely allied group of religious denominations, secular membership organizations, authors, philosophers, and individuals who share a set of metaphysical beliefs concerning the effects of positive thinking, the law of attraction, healing through prayer, life force, creative visualization and personal power. It promotes the ideas that "Infinite Intelligence" or "God" is ubiquitous, spirit is the totality of all things, true human selfhood is divine, divine thought is a force for good, all sickness originates in the mind, and 'right thinking' has a healing effect.

Although New Thought is neither monolithic nor doctrinaire, in general, modern day adherents of New Thought believe that their interpretation of "God" or "Infinite Intelligence" is "supreme, universal, and everlasting", that divinity dwells within each person, that all people are spiritual beings, and that "the highest spiritual principle is loving one another unconditionally . . . and teaching and healing one another", and that "our mental states are carried forward into manifestation and become our experience in daily living".

'Science of Mind' evolved from the teachings of Ernest Holmes, based on his 1926 book, Science of Mind. Read more about 'Science of Mind,' aka Religious Science
