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.



MAY THEME: Spiritual Living - You Were Meant to Succeed

How do you define success? Is it a purposeful career? Or soul-satisfying relationships? How about dynamic, vibrant and radiant health? Surely it includes a deep and abiding sense of your oneness with God? Perhaps an abundant flow of prosperity? Or walking in a state of Grace and Inner Peace and experiencing the Joy of Life? How about all of the above and more? Whatever your definition of success is, this month we will explore how to achieve it using Jack Canfield's insightful and empowering book, "The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to be".


I move through my day easily, positively, and successfully. Life is good today - very good.

The focus will be on understanding the historical roots in America of Ernest Holmes' philosophy. Join us as we explore the Roots of this teaching and discuss the influence it has on us.  (See calendar for list of texts)                                                                   Cost: $125


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!
