The Agape Center for Spiritual Living is a “New Thought” spiritual community and is an affiliated member of the Centers for Spiritual Living. New Thought is simply the premise that with every new thought we can create a new life.
The New Thought tradition dates to the 1880s and has its roots in the Transcendentalist Movement of the 1830s. New Thought has a long and respected history and includes luminaries such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Walt Whitman, Phineas Quimby, Thomas Troward and Emma Curtis Hopkins. Some of the better-known authors today whose writings parallel our teachings are Norman Vincent Peale, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, Eckhart Tolle, and many others.
Our teachings incorporate the ancient wisdom of all spiritual traditions through the ages. People on all spiritual paths — Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Islam, New Age, and others — are all welcome in our Agape community.
We live with an awareness of our oneness with Life and the experience the interconnectedness of all life.
We continually deepen and expand our understanding of Universal Truth through daily practices as taught by the great teachers of all time. We believe that personal growth is a never ending process and that our purpose in life is to eternally evolve.
We act ethically, speak honestly and respectfully, while consciously living in alignment with our values and focusing on the collective good while honoring our unique and perfect way of being in the world.
We join together in love to create a safe and supportive environment of acceptance, shared trust, and mutual growth that honors our individuality.
We commit to the practice of giving and receiving and to being good stewards of the abundance that is ours, our families and our community’s.
We understand that joy is our natural state of being and that it is only through our misplaced attention that we create an illusion of separation where we experience states of being that are not joyful.
Dr. Ernest Holmes (January 21, 1887 – April 7, 1960) was the Founder of Religious Science which became the Centers for Spiritual Living. Dr. Holmes’ book, The Science of Mind, is recognized today as one of the leading viewpoints in modern metaphysics and New Thought. Ernest Holmes incorporated the mystical (an experience of God) with the metaphysical.
Dr. Holmes developed a universal philosophy and tools for spiritual living which profoundly resonate to this day. His work provides us with a personal spiritual path, an understanding of our relationship with the Universe, and a connected and joyful approach to daily living.
