What a roller-coaster we have been on over the past 16 months! There now appears to be some real light at the end of the tunnel. As you are no doubt aware, the Province of Alberta has laid out an ambitious plan to have the province “open for summer!” Of course, it is dependent on several things, but there is definitely forward movement.
You are probably also wondering how this will impact the Calgary Centre for Spiritual Living and how we gather together, both in person and online. Rest assured, this is an on-going conversation with the Board of Trustees and we are following things very closely. We want to make wise decisions for our entire community, to the best of our ability.
When we do open again (and we will), we want to make sure that it is safe, smart, and serves the greater good. What we don’t know is when that will happen. We will be watching the provincial re-opening closely and making decisions accordingly.
One thing we are very clear on: we are committed to providing both the best in-person experience we can, while also continuing with our popular livestream service. Our beloved spiritual community has grown beyond the Southern Alberta area during this time, and we definitely want to include everyone as we move forward.
Folks, I am very proud of the way we have come together as a community, in spite of the challenges. It hasn’t been easy for any of us to keep our faith through all of this, and yet, I trust and know that we have grown through the experience and are emerging even stronger, clearer, and wiser!
Stay tuned as we navigate these final days of this experience... and know that you are loved!
Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, all events are currently available online only.
We miss you, but please do not drop in on Sunday mornings!
We look forward to seeing you in ZOOM discussion groups and/or classes.

Mondays Consciousness Seekers Discussion Group
The Consciousness Seekers group explores self-realization, personal acceptance and purpose, and general understanding of “why life works the way it does” by examining our existing belief systems and exploring the philosophy of Science of Mind. Meditation, examination of other spiritual philosophies, and various readings and texts are used to promote discussion among the participants, who are welcome to actively join in or simply listen and consider.
Currently, conversation is loosely centered around the book “Working With The Law” by Raymond Holliwell with short segments read aloud. The book is not required but members find it useful and is available at class or our own Bookstore as well as through online book sellers.

Calgary Centre for Spiritual Living

Weekly Meditation and Sunday Celebration with Message and Music are held in the sanctuary with comfortable chairs for around 150 people.
Everyone is welcome here: young, old, single, families, people from all styles of life and interests. We value diversity and inclusion. All faiths are welcome as we honour and practice spiritual truths from all faith traditions and philosophies. This is the place where we can gather to remember that with the Power of the One Mind, all things are possible, and to celebrate the awareness of good in our lives. This is a place where we care for each other as friends and companions. We welcome you to come and check us out and make this your spiritual home.
We offer a variety of registered courses, in both accredited Science of Mind courses, and some based on popular self-help books by amazing authors like Deepak Chopra, and Joe Dispenza.
Courses cover a range of topics, such as: positive thinking, mind, body, spirit connection, prosperity, mental and physical healing, transcendental thinkers, and traditional meditation, just to name a few.
Registered courses are between 6-10 weeks, and are generally held once a week in the evening from 6:30 to 9pm. They are facilitated primarily by our own amazing spiritual teachers. Some home study and practice is expected, such as reading of published books and supplemental materials, thought exercises, journaling, and meditation. Taking a course is a great way to improve your life, heal and grow, and get to know people on a deeper level.
Come and be part of something bigger, make connections and grow in community. Courses are priced around $250 with some courses offering financial assistance, depending on circumstances. If you are not sure if you are ready to commit to a multi-week course, ask the facilitator if you can try a drop in session for a small fee.
Two or three-hour workshops are occasionally offered on a Sunday afternoon or other time. Check our calendar for details.
What are people are saying?
"Dr. Pat is great, caring, genuine, warm, funny, and a great teacher of this philosophy."
- Treatment by Dr.Pat during COVID-19 Pandemic
Just as surely as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, the Infinite Intelligence of the Divine is present in all things. This same Intelligence knows Itself and expresses Itself through everything, everywhere, at all times, no exceptions. Even in the midst of seeming chaos, there is orderliness and perfection back of it. It is expressing Itself through me. It lives me. It breathes me. I am one with It. No separation. Only Oneness. What is true for me, is also true for everyone and everything. We are Life expressing, uniquely, wholly, and absolutely. […]Read More »
What is Spiritual Mind Treatment?
At Centres for Spiritual Living we use Spiritual Mind Treatment, a powerful method of connecting with Spirit and using positive thinking affirmations, to create the life we desire. Treatment uses thought to set the Creative Process into motion. Similar to cognitive behavioural therapy, it is a powerful method for creating the life you want and for healing any aspect of your life. It is a direct, focused, and organized method using five steps to get to your desired outcome:
Those steps include:
- Recognition (Recognizing Spirit is All)
- Unification (I am One with Everything)
- Realization (Affirming my desired good)
- Thanksgiving (Gratitude for this knowing)
- Release (Trust the Process of the Universe)
You can do this type of positive thinking treatment for yourself or have a minister or practitioner treat for you and help you write your own treatments in your own words. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org treatment. You can also take classes in Science of Mind and learn how to do treatment for yourself and others.
