Vanessa Tomie began her studies in Science of Mind in 1988 in Honolulu, Hawaii and appreciated learning the SOM values of inclusivity and ‘ALL paths lead to God’ under Rev Helen Street’s Religious Science International Church which advanced Vanessa to become a RScP in 1993. She actively studied/lived these principles and eventually moved from Hawaii to California in 2002. In 2011, Vanessa experienced a near tragedy, which reminded her again of the importance these principles can play in her everyday life. She found a church of United Religious Science, and began again, studying for her Practitioner's license in San Francisco, as well as, being active with the Church/Center. Fast forward, Vanessa visited NTCSL on a Sunday in May 2015. On that day, she met several other Practitioners-in-training. Spirit had already been conspiring
her to move here to Lake Oswego, Oregon from California. Within only a few months, Vanessa passed her Practitioner Orals at NTCSL, became a Licensed Practitioner at CSL-AH (San Francisco), had moved to Oregon, transferred her CSL membership and Practitioner’s license to NTCSL and purchased a home in the Mountain Park area. Vanessa feels she has finally come home.

Vanessa is a recently retired RN who has traveled for the past 3 years. She is ready to settle down and serve God in a new way. Vanessa is called to help the Youth Ministry (having for many years volunteered and headed the children's ministry
back in Hawaii) to help develop young minds to think on their own and make intelligent choices that serve themselves and humanity. She also wants to incorporate what she has learned in Science of Mind and in dancing tango. She hopes to share dancing as a possible way for healing and expressing joy. Her other studies include Hula, Aikido (brown belt), Taoist Tai Chi, Tai Chi Chih, Feldenkrais, Sufism and Latin Dances (Salsa and Argentine Tango).

Vanessa’s daily practice is mediation, prayer for herself, family and friends, and the Center. She believes that by delving into our dark side we can come through to a lighter, more fulfilling place. In this work, we become more transparent to the Truth and the understanding that we all deserve to be happy. She strongly believes in Ernest Holmes’ famous quote, "Change your thinking, change your life."
