We are all thinking, willing, knowing conscious centers of Life. We are surrounded by, immersed in, and there is flowing through us a creative something . . . call it what you will.

An Open Hearted, Open Minded Spiritual Community

449-D Pigeon St., Waynesville, NC 28786

We are an independent Science of Mind and Spirit Community located in the Smoky Mountains of Haywood County, in Western North Carolina.

As an open hearted, open minded spiritual community we honor God or the Divine Presence within everyone in all paths and all walks of life. Wherever you are on your spiritual path, we see you as the true spiritual being you are. Welcome to a place where you can make friends, share experiences with like-minded people, and deepen your awareness of the presence of God in your life. Uplifting music is important to us so in the words of one of our favorite songs “Welcome to a place … that knows the truth, that God is everything; God is me; God is you.”

We do consider ourselves a metaphysically based organization. There is nothing mysterious or supernatural about metaphysics. Meta means above or beyond, and physical means material or that which is experienced by the five senses.  Metaphysics is simply the study of God as Creative Intelligence or Universal Mind, which is everywhere present, in and through all that we see, touch, smell, hear, taste…and beyond!

We realize that breaking away from past understandings and exploring new beliefs is sometimes overwhelming. Our website can answer many of your questions. We also encourage you to call 828-456-9697 at any time, or send an email to

What About Sunday Services?

Our Sundays begin at 10:30am with a meditation of 15 to 20 minutes, followed by the Celebration Service at 11:00am. (In the event of inclement weather, call 828-729-3949.)

Our Celebration Service lasts approximately one hour and offers opportunities to enjoy music, song and prayer that uplift the heart and soul. Our diverse speakers deliver an affirmative message to support you on your spiritual journey. In fact, all of our services, activities or classes seek to provide spiritual tools and resources to help deepen the experience of your personal connection with the Divine Presence within you.

What if I Have Children?

Parents and other family members are encouraged to bring children to our Sunday Celebration Service. Although we do not currently provide childcare or Sunday School type activities, we welcome children to accompany their parent(s) or guardian(s).

How Should I Dress?

Be comfortable! There is no “dress code.” You may dress in your “Sunday Best” or in casual clothing and be assured there will be others dressed similarly.
