We are a loving and diverse spiritual community dedicated to personal growth, healing, and service.
What is Science of Mind?
We believe in every religion and honor all paths to God. We believe that every life is sacred and valuable. We believe that every person is on a spiritual journey that will ultimately lead to their greatest good. CSL uses the Science of Mind textbook written by Dr. Holmes as one of the resources for this belief. Dr Holmes taught that the universe is created by an Infinite Mind; therefore, we should remain “open at the top,” always ready to incorporate new wisdom as it is revealed through the arts, science, and religion. We include the western Bible along with the eastern teachings of the Tao and other sacred texts as resources for spiritual truth.
The Center celebrates and welcomes diversity. We believe that every person holds equal value in the eyes of God regardless of religion, race, gender, sexual orientation, or any other worldly identification that tries to separate us. The Center holds the vision that one day we will see ourselves as ONE people on ONE planet, living in ONE universe governed by one God.

What is the Center for Spiritual Living?
Center for Spiritual Living Fort Lauderdale is a member of a global organization called Centers for Spiritual Living with over 500 centers worldwide. Dr. Ernest Holmes founded the organization in the early 20th century. He believed there was a thread of truth running through every great religion and philosophy, and it was his desire to pluck out that thread, leaving behind all superstition, dogma, and religious opinion. He took that thread and created principles called the “Science of Mind,” these are the principles and beliefs we continue to teach and live today.
