About Us What We Believe:  Science of Mind was established in 1927 by Dr. Ernest Holmes. Despite limited formal education, Holmes studied world religions, psychology, philosophy and science. He called Science of Mind “the most liberal spiritual movement the world has ever seen,” and stated that this philosophy, “In its broadest and truest sense includes all there is in science, religion and philosophy … It borrows much of its light from others, but in so doing does not rob anyone, for Truth is universal and never personal. Science of Mind is based on ten core concepts that run as a theme through both ancient spiritual wisdom and modern religious teachings. These spiritual values include prayer, Oneness, wholeness, abundance and forgiveness.  Within the heart of this teaching, we find the strength and wisdom of Christianity, the timeless and pervasive truths of Hinduism and Buddhism, ideals held dear in Native American culture, and many others. © Open Door CSL 2015 Created by RetroReproductions
