As Science of Mind practitioners, we bring a new perspective of God to those who feel there is a face of God that may be different from that which they have grown up with. This “face” is a gentler Spirit, a more loving Spirit, a Spirit that celebrates life in general and us in particular. We thoroughly enjoy helping people know themselves more deeply and most of all developing their own relationship with this great Spirit. We agree with Ernest Holmes when he said: “There is a power for good in the Universe and you can use it.” As a Science of Mind minister, this is our hearts work and advocation…to use that Power to make create good for ourselves and the world we live in. All are welcome! Come to our Sunday Celebration and experience our warm, open community for yourself. We are a Religious Science of Mind church and a member of the Centers for Spiritual Living.

We thoroughly enjoy helping people know themselves more deeply and most of all developing their own relationship with this great Spirit. We agree with Ernest Holmes when he said: “There is a power for good in the Universe and you can use it.” As a Science of Mind minister, this is our hearts work and advocation…to use that Power to make create good for ourselves and the world we live in.

Northern Lights Spiritual Center (9626 14th SW) – “At Northern Lights Spiritual Center, we use the practical and spiritual principles to help create lives we love living. We use the knowledge that has been gained over the years and the metaphysical and spiritual principles we have learned through Science of Mind and ministerial teachings in our Sunday talks, as well as in workshops and spiritual coaching. As Science of Mind practitioners, we bring a new perspective of God to those who feel there is a face of God that may be different from that which they have grown up with. This “face” is a gentler Spirit, a more loving Spirit, a Spirit that celebrates life in general and us in particular. We thoroughly enjoy helping people know themselves more deeply and most of all developing their own relationship with this great Spirit. We agree with Ernest Holmes when he said: “There is a power for good in the Universe and you can use it.” As a Science of Mind minister, this is our hearts work and advocation…to use that Power to make create good for ourselves and the world we live in. All are welcome! Come to our Sunday Celebration and experience our warm, open community for yourself. We are a Religious Science of Mind church and a member of the Centers for Spiritual Living.

Northern Lights Spiritual Center (9626 14th SW) – “At Northern Lights Spiritual Center, we use the practical and spiritual principles to help create lives we love living. We use the knowledge that has been gained over the years and the metaphysical and spiritual principles we have learned through Science of Mind and ministerial teachings in our Sunday talks, as well as in workshops and spiritual coaching. As Science of Mind practitioners, we bring a new perspective of God to those who feel there is a face of God that may be different from that which they have grown up with. This “face” is a gentler Spirit, a more loving Spirit, a Spirit that celebrates life in general and us in particular. We thoroughly enjoy helping people know themselves more deeply and most of all developing their own relationship with this great Spirit. We agree with Ernest Holmes when he said: “There is a power for good in the Universe and you can use it.” As a Science of Mind minister, this is our hearts work and advocation…to use that Power to make create good for ourselves and the world we live in. All are welcome! Come to our Sunday Celebration and experience our warm, open community for yourself. We are a Religious Science of Mind church and a member of the Centers for Spiritual Living. To learn more about our global organization, click here: http:/csl.org. We meet every Sunday from 10:00 to 12:00 AM at 9626 14th Ave SW (West Seattle cross street Roxbury St).

We agree with Ernest Holmes when he said: “There is a power for good in the Universe and you can use it.” As a Science of Mind minister, this is our hearts work and advocation…to use that Power to make create good for ourselves and the world we live in.
