Living Beyond Limits is a spiritual community of love, support and inspiration. Here you are welcome exactly as you are, no matter your gender, color, sexual orientation, disability, age, size or level of sobriety. You will find acceptance without judgment whether you are celebrating a success, questioning a life circumstance or grieving a loss.
Our Sunday Talks deal with real-life situations as we investigate solutions together. Our classes, workshops, and Sunday services provide necessary tools to live a fulfilling and balanced life. These tools are designed to bring about a greater awareness of our own spiritual magnificence, inviting us to get involved in life in ways we might never have thought possible. It’s amazing what happens when you hang out with spiritually like-minded people!
What is Centers for Spiritual Living?
We are members of a global organization called Centers for Spiritual Living with over 500 centers worldwide. Dr. Ernest Holmes founded the organization in the early 20th century. He believed there was a thread of truth running through every great religion and philosophy, and it was his desire to pull out that thread, leaving behind all superstition, dogma, and religious opinion. He took that thread and created principles called “Science of Mind,” and these are the principles and beliefs we continue to teach and live today.
What is Science of Mind?
We believe in every religion and honor all paths to God. We believe that every life is sacred and valuable. We believe that every person is on a spiritual journey which will ultimately lead to their greatest good. CSL uses the Science of Mind textbook written by Dr. Holmes as one of the resources for this belief. Dr Holmes taught that the universe is created by an Infinite Mind; therefore, we should remain “open at the top,” always ready to incorporate new wisdom as it is revealed through the arts, science, and religion. We include the western Bible along with the eastern teachings of the Tao and other sacred texts as resources for spiritual truth.
Our Center celebrates and welcomes diversity. We believe that every person holds equal value in the eyes of God regardless of religion, race, gender, sexual orientation, or any other worldly identification that tries to separate us. Our Center holds the vision that one day we will see ourselves as ONE people on ONE planet, living in ONE universe governed by one Divine Presence
