Reawakening the Sacred in Our Lives…
WHO is the Santa Fe Center for Spiritual Living?
We are a loving, accepting, community that embraces the sacred in all areas of our lives. Our universal principles and practices have been distilled into modern language from many time-honored religious and philosophical traditions by our founder, Ernest Holmes. Ours is a welcoming space — physically, emotionally and spiritually.
WHAT is the mission of Santa Fe Center for Spiritual Living?
We come together with love and joy to express the One Divine Source within us all. We share our collected wisdom, inspiration and hope that all may thrive and prosper. Santa Fe Center is a place where miracles emerge through the grace of Spirit and through the support of our spiritual community.
WHY does the work of Santa Fe Center for Spiritual Living matter to me?
We live at a tipping point in history that challenges humanity to remember the sacred knowing of its own Divinity. Together we reawaken to hear Spirit’s quiet yet insistent call to be of service with and for each other. We enthusiastically answer the call to create a world that works for One and all.
What We Believe
The Santa Fe Center for Spiritual Living (SFCSL) is an inclusive spiritual community celebrating all life as the expression of the One Divine Source, striving to live the Science of Mind as postulated by Dr. Ernest Holmes.
What is the Science of Mind?
The Science of Mind is not a religion, but a philosophy and a technique, and though it has no rules or dogma, it does include a series of principles that assist in one’s life journey. It encourages the individual to develop a personal relationship with the Divine, and to understand that the relationship is reciprocal. This means that the more intimate our connection with God, the greater will be Its influence in, and as us.
This is accomplished through the study of the philosophy and the practice of affirmative prayer, also called spiritual mind treatment. The former explains the creative presence of the Universe in the individual’s thinking and feeling. The latter encourages the practice of this creative process through the use of a loving Law that is always willing to respond to our highest good. We embrace the Oneness of the Universe through the attraction of Love within us.
How we Pray
Santa Fe Center for Spiritual Living, we practice a form of affirmative prayer called “Spiritual Mind Treatment.” Affirmative Prayer, is a practical tool that aligns our thoughts with all-good. Affirmative Prayer is a powerful process that shifts our consciousness so that we are open and available to accept the good that is already present in our life.
Affirmative Prayer declares a spiritual Truth. It is recognition of Spirit’s Omniscience, Omnipotence, and Omnipresence, and a realization of humanity’s unity with Spirit. Affirmative Prayer is a powerful method for setting the Creative Process into motion. It is a direct, focused, and organized method using five steps to your desired outcome:
1. Recognition (God Is All There Is)
2. Unification (I Am One with God)
3. Realization (Speaking Your Desired Good)
4. Thanksgiving (Grateful Acceptance) and
5. Release (Let Go, Let God)
