September 9, 2021 Covid-19 Update
“In this Science (teaching), we believe that man’s life is a drama which takes place on three planes: the physical, the mental, and the spiritual. We should have no objections to any form of healing, for anything that helps to overcome suffering is good, whether it be a pill or a prayer. We believe in any method which produces results, for each has its place in the Whole.”
Dr. Ernest Holmes, Founder of the Science of Mind
Hello Friends. As you have no doubt heard, the Covid-19 (and variant) numbers are rising again here in Alberta. So much so, that the Province has brought back the mask mandate for all indoor public places. Interestingly, however, they made an exemption for "places of worship."
That said, the City of Calgary also brought back its mask mandate, but it does NOT exempt places of worship. Because it is the more restrictive by-law, we are bound by it. This means for us to remain open, we have to require people to wear masks. READ MORE

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 email@example.com treatment. You can also take classes in Science of Mind and learn how to do treatment for yourself and others.
