The Science of Mind is the core teaching of our Center; it is a philosophy that integrates spiritual truths with science and physics. In the Science of Mind, we believe that spiritual thought and science are complementary, and that science will prove what the mystics have said for thousands of years about the nature of God, human beings, and the universe.
We believe that the universe is spiritual and has intelligence, purpose, beauty and order. We believe that God is a loving intelligence, operating in and through all life, never separate from anyone or anything. Our beliefs are in harmony with all the world’s great spiritual teachings, and we honor all paths to God.
We teach and practice a way of life where we can all learn how to live in accordance with spiritual principles. These principles, which we call the Science of Mind, are as reliable as the laws of physical science. In essence, our thinking and our expectations create our reality.
By studying and applying spiritual laws, we can change our unconscious beliefs and create improved conditions in our life.

Here is a link to a short video on how to access the Zoom
Video Technology we are using to connect.
This video talks about how to use zoom on a computer or laptop - it is similar but a little different if you join via a smart phone or tablet. Need help - email and let us know and one of our Project 2 Connect team members will call you and walk you through it.
Get Inspired Any Time!
To listen to an uplifting message any day of the week, you may browse a selection of live talks previously given at our Center by clicking the button below.
Alternatively, our April video series, Bright Beginnings, can be found on our Welcome page.
Our board and leadership are actively engaged in ways to keep us connected during this time. We’ll be reaching out in many ways, through email, Facebook posts, video conferencing (via the Zoom platform), YouTube, and the good old fashioned telephone. Please see the notice regarding "Project 2 Connect" on the left side of the page above under Stay Connected.
Due to Santa Cruz County's shelter-in-place directive, we will be suspending all in-person activities at the Center until furhter notice. Our March 22nd annual meeting has been postponed to a later date (TBD), and our current board members have agreed to stay on a little longer while we weather the logistical challenges presented by the pandemic.
As we re-engineer how we connect and provide services, we appreciate your patience and your support. If you have relevant technical skills and would like to help us with this project, please email email@example.com.
