WHO WE ARE
Guide for Spiritual Living: Science of Mind magazine is a monthly, international magazine providing inspiration and practical spiritual tools to transform individual’s lives and create a world that works for all. It is based on the philosophy of New Thought luminary Dr. Ernest Holmes, who founded the magazine in 1927. This philosophy teaches that we are part of the creative process of life and therefore our beliefs and attitudes create our experiences. We honor all paths to God and help individuals create a personal relationship with God. Our primary focus is awakening individuals to their spiritual magnificence and creating a world that works for all.
Guide for Spiritual Living: Science of Mind magazine is published by Centers for Spiritual Living.

WHAT WE WANT
The magazine publishes articles that teach, inspire, motivate and inform. Editorial content addresses the concerns, interests and problems of readers, offering thoughtful perspectives on how they can experience greater self-acceptance, empowerment and meaningful living. Our readers are cultural creatives – free thinkers who care about spiritual growth, personal development, community, sustainable living and social justice.
We publish articles that provide practical tools for spiritual living. We also include articles that offer a spiritual perspective on world events and trends. We do not publish works of poetry or fiction.
The magazine provides many ways to make a difference for students enrolled in the Centers for Spiritual Living Holmes Institute School of Spiritual Leadership. » Check out the list of internship programs with the Science of Mind magazine staff.
