The Roots of the Science of Mind taught by Rev. Dr. David Alexander, is a transformational course and a fascinating journey through the minds of New Thought luminaries who greatly influenced Ernest Holmes, the founder of Religious Science. Truth lives on through the works of the authors and spiritual pioneers that we study: Ralph Waldo Emerson, Judge Thomas Troward, and Emma Curtis Hopkins.

You will deepen your understanding of the philosophical foundation of Religious Science and other New Thought teachings, and be inspired by the power of the written word. Of equal importance, we will focus on how these powerful teachings can be applied today… in the laboratory of our lives.

Note: the course Foundations is a required prerequisite.
