Our Founder | Dr. Ernest Holmes
Who is Ernest Holmes?
From time to time, we are blessed to know people of apparent genius, people whose insight, understanding and love are influential in changing the thinking of whole generations, and whose impact will be felt for years to come.
Dr. Ernest Holmes was such a person. He began teaching in 1916 and founded the movement we know today as the Science of Mind and Spirit in 1927.
The philosophy is found in a textbook written by Dr. Holmes called The Science of Mind. It was first published in 1926 and revised in 1938.
Raised in New England in the 1800s, over time he was able to piece together the profound knowledge of many of the world’s greatest spiritual leaders and thinkers throughout history.
He studied science, philosophy, and religion, seeking out the greatest minds in each of these various fields. Throughout this investigation, his desire was to synthesize what he learned, to “put it all together” into one practical, usable philosophy that would lead to greater happiness, success, and prosperity in daily life. He achieved this goal.
What is the Science of Mind?
It’s New Thought and Ancient Wisdom. Our message and teaching are based on the culmination of the world’s greatest spiritual truths—that golden thread that runs through all, the opinions and ideas of philosophy, and the laws of science.
The Science of Mind and Spirit, founded by Ernest Holmes in the early 1900s, believes that there is One Mind, One Creative Power that is within each of us, available to us to bring forth health, loving relationships, fulfilling work, abundance and so much more.
Simply put, the Science of Mind teaches “There is a Power within you to create the life you want!” We believe that the secret to living a successful life is to consciously choose positive and productive thoughts. Put another way, “As you think, so you become.”
