Lessons in Living a Thriving Life: Creative Mind

Sundays, Nov 8-Jan 3, 5:30-6:15pm PT (No meeting 12/20)

In this 8-week series, we’ll be exploring one of Ernest Holmes’s metaphysical classics, Creative Mind. This book was originally a series of talks on mental and spiritual laws, given at the Metaphysical Institute in Los Angeles in 1918. The ideas contained in this book are as thought provoking as they inevitably were then. Topics in our discussion will delve into the ideas of personal power, individual responsibility, being alive and inspired in the present moment, and the role we each play in our outer, collective experience.
