Guidance Education Department

Our Education Department is aimed at empowering our students to connect with Spirit within themselves while enhancing their spiritual practice. The curriculum was created and refined by the United Centers for Spiritual Living; The Global Heart (formerly known as the United Church of Religious Science). Science of Mind curriculum is trans-denominational and spiritual rather than religious. Influenced by teachings from New Thought, Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Islamism, Hinduism, Ancient Traditions, it’s aimed at transforming and up-leveling one’s relationship with God.
