    "Imaginal hygiene is the

    inner art of self -managing the imagination, to defend it from

    forces that compromise,

    pollute, colonize,

    shrink, and sterilize it, and

    to cultivate those that

    illuminate, expand, and nourish it."


    “What we play is life.”

    Dare To Be Rare Dare To Be Rare Dare To Be Rare seminar At a time of major transition — overcoming an identity crisis and grief, 800 miles from her home, family, business, and country to begin her ministerial training — Rev. Elle Bratland learned how to use Science of Mind principles to create a wonderful new life. In this free seminar she leads, learn how to Release the past, become Aware of who you really are, Re-align with your true self, and Experience the life you desire now. A minister and counselor, Elle tells her story, assisting others to understand and use the Principles and to believe in themselves. Elle says, “This is one of my most popular seminars! Some have told me that attending Dare To Be Rare changed their lives for good!” Born and raised in Canada, Elle studied with Dr. Carleton Whitehead in Chicago, where she received her practitioner’s license, then took her ministerial training in California with Drs. Frank and Anita Richelieu. Then she ministered in the Cape Coral and Boca Raton, Fla. Churches of Religious Science. Now living here, she’s active at Creative Life! The seminar will follow a book‐signing after the 11AM service on SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 21. More info: [email protected]@[email protected]

    Craft project Craft project group Do you have a project that is just waiting for you to pick it up and complete it? A new group will be start‐ ing soon to finish our creative efforts. Let’s be creative together, supporting each other to finish that wood work, painting, short story, weaving, making jewelry, etc. Perhaps we may find a need and work together to bring completion. Pull out that unfinished stepping‐ stone kit, birdhouse, beadwork, lap blanket, or what‐ ever you are working on that just needs completion

    and share a creative time together. I am so excited about this group that I am packin’ heat! —‐ a hot glue gun, that is, should the occasion arise to need one. Carthel Smejkal has graciously agreed to co‐facilitate the group. I eagerly look forward to seeing and learning about new techniques and ideas. I have on hand some magazines that are filled with ideas called “Where Women Create,” several craft magazines, and a stash of supplies that will be available for you to choose from should you need something to begin with. Please give me your feedback as to your time preferences and frequency of meetings — once a month, once a week, etc. Then I’ll set our first meeting date. The sky’s the limit on what we do.

    Practitioner and minister‐in‐training David Dewhurst has been a fixture around our Center since his wife Babs brought him to visit some eight years ago. He serves on our Board of Trustees, helps anchor the Wednesday night events, assists with many Science of Mind classes, and makes the announcements at the early service Sundays, replete with a pun or other clever word‐ play (he’s a Distinguished Toastmaster). A native of Blackburn,

    Lancashire, and trained as a civil engineer, David worked for Shell, and Aramco in Holland (he’s fluent in Dutch). Now in his first year of work at the Holmes Institute, more than anything he loves to teach, which means he loves to learn. On a previous Wednesday he fascinated us with a glimpse into Druidism. Now he’ll speak on Gateways: Many Tunnels Into Oneness, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, at 7PM.

  • Sunday morning MeditationsMeditationsMeditations

    “...Sit and rest and refresh your soul. Eat of the fruit and drink the wine.

    All, all is yours, and you are welcome.” —The Science of Mind text

    Each week’s is led by a CLC practitioner, and lasts about 35 minutes, ending in time to comfortably get into the 11:00 celebration. There is music to enhance as you are guided into a

    restful state, and inspirational read‐ ings to tap into your spiritual center. Most sessions will end with a spiritual mind treatment based on the theme of the readings. Don’t be concerned about being late. There is an easy way to quickly get into the flow. Stand a moment outside the door and bring yourself to complete silence. Maintain that silence as you enter. You’ll find yourself suddenly present in the meditation and all is well. SUNDAYS 10:15‐10:50AM, upstairs in the Learning Center.
