The Center for Spiritual Living, Asheville is a New Thought community dedicated to prosperous living through spiritual awareness of our perfect health, perfect wealth and perfect happiness. We teach and practice the Science of Mind philosophy, originated by Dr. Ernest Holmes as a way of expressing full, rich, and meaningful lives, regardless of outside conditions. Our foundational spiritual practice is Spiritual Mind Treatment, a form of effective affirmative prayer.
Religious Science is described as a compilation of the opinions of philosophy, the laws of science, and the revelations of religion as applied to the aspirations of humankind. Ours is a practical teaching that affirms perfect health, happiness, peace, and joy in the lives of all people.
Our community is open to all people who seek to express their divine nature in peaceful and joyous ways, without regard to age, race, cultural and family circumstances or religious background. Those of gay and lesbian orientation, youth and families, are all honored and play meaningful roles within our community.
Our spiritual leaders are Rev. Dr. Barbara Waterhouse and Rev. Dr. John Waterhouse. We are affiliated with Centers for Spiritual Living, a world-wide New Thought spiritual movement founded by Dr. Holmes.
Join us for our Celebration of Life each Sunday morning at 11:00. We also have Monday evening classes.
The Center has a lesson-based children’s program called “Kid’s Club” that runs congruent to our Celebration of Life. Find out more on our Youth & Family Center page.
