A Message from Rev. Debby & Rev. Matti
Welcome!  Are you ready to change your life?  Are you ready for more happiness, more joy and more love?  Are you looking for a non-judgmental positive group of individuals that come together in fellowship and community?  Then my friends, you have come to the right place.
The Center for Spiritual Living Carlsbad provides the spiritual tools, support and practices to transform our lives and make the world a better place.  We believe that as we change our thinking, we can change our lives.
Honoring all paths to God, we know that as we connect at a deeper level with Spirit, we are able to connect at a deeper level with others.  That is just the beginning to greater happiness, expanded joy and increased love.
Get ready to embrace life at a new level as we wake up to our Divinity.  Join us we support, guide and celebrate together this thing called life.



MARCH THEME: Spiritual Living - Bridging the Gap

Dr. Ernest Holmes wrote: "Let us feel that our purposes are animated and inspired from on high and then let us go forth and make our dream come true in human experience." Inspiring YES - however, for most of us there is a gap between incubating the idea and manifesting the dream. Let's bridge the gap with spiritual tools that move us from fear into faith. After all, what we do inside can make all the difference in the world.


I live in sweet accord with the Universal Presence of Love and Law, knowing the highest and finest for myself and all beings.

Wednesday evenings beginning January 25 through March 29 from 6:30 - 8:30pm The Claypool Learning Center: 390 Oak Ave. #H, Carlsbad

Our founder Ernest Holmes brought much wisdom to this world; yet at the same time, he left room for interruption.   And when we start to make it our own, the real power comes to light.  

Join us as we examine an idea every week and uncover what it means to us and how we can put It to work for our highest and best good.  Throw in some meditation and healthy conversation and you have all the makings of true consciousness raising.   

Cost is $100.00 plus the cost of the book 


THE SCIENCE OF MIND - Book Study & Discussion Group with Rev. Catherine Bonin
Friday Afternoons from 3:30 - 5:00pm  The Claypool Learning Center: 390 Oak Ave. #H, Carlsbad

Every January at churches across the country, Religious Scientists go Back to Basics and review the foundational concepts of the Science of Mind teaching: The Thing Itself, The Way It Works, What It Does and How to Use It. CSL Carlsbad is no exception, but this year we are offering an opportunity to take it even deeper. Ernest Holmes is known as the great synthesizer, his writing weaves the sacred teachings of both Eastern and Western traditions, the empirical nature of science, the deep insights of psychology and the wisdom of the great philosophers to create one of the most innovative and important books of our time.
Have you read the Science of Mind textbook? How about starting now?
This Book Can Change Your Life!
