Ernest Holmes

“It has taken humanity thousands of years to learn that
it has the power to control its own destiny.”
-- Ernest Holmes


Ernest Holmes founded the International Religious Science movement and wrote The Science of Mind and numerous other books on metaphysics. He also founded the international monthly periodical, Science of Mind magazine, which has been in continuous monthly publication since 1927 and has influenced millions of people. His Science of Mind teaching, which has been recognized by persons such as Jean Houston as one of the leading viewpoints in modern metaphysics, is a spiritual philosophy that people throughout the world have come to know as a positive, supportive approach to life.

Ernest Holmes was a visionary in the early part of the 20th century. In the midst of wars and rumors of wars, he studied the ancient sacred teachings of East and West and melded them into a spiritual belief that helped fuel the current interest in all things spiritual.  His Science of Mind teaching emphasizes the unlimited scope of the human mind and our underlying oneness with each other and with our Creator.

As the founder of a philosophy, a faith, and a way of life, and an internationally recognized authority on all religions, Holmes culled the core truths from many faiths and philosophers and revealed them in a powerful and practical new way.  His books have changed many lives and are used in teaching centers around the globe to heal and improve the quality of living.

"We live and move and have our being in what we call an Infinite Mind, an Infinite Creative Mind, also infinitely receptive, operative, omnipotent and all-knowing; and we have learned that this mind presses against us on all sides, flows through us and becomes operative through our thinking...and the word you speak today is the law which shall govern your life tomorrow." Ernest Holmes, Creative Mind

Creative Mind, newly published release, was made possible by the generous gift of Dr. Donald Curtis and  Karen Curtis. The forward in the book by Rev. Catherine Ponder states: "As we look back, we can take pride that the writings and persona of Dr. Ernest Holmes put him in the forefront of the inspired spiritual leaders of the 20th century".

Several of Ernest Holmes' books are included in the Featured Books Section and a few of his earliest publications are available as downloadable PDFs on the Ebooks Page.
