Who We Are
Our Core Mission

Bosque Center for Spiritual Living creates activities and spaces that nurture genuine connection and spiritual growth through music, service, and the arts.

Creating Community Together

Bosque Center for Spiritual Living is exploring the idea of a “decentralized” Center with multiple localities. We create connection and relationship every time we gather, in all the ways we gather, in every place we gather.

Of course, we see “church” in the familiar model of weekly services, and we can celebrate there with all our hearts. But that’s not the only place church happens. As we practice mindfulness and intentionality, we recognize that we can create and experience vibrant spiritual community as we sing together around a backyard fire, march together for equality and justice, learn and grow together in workshops, or socialize together in a pub.

Maple Street Dance Space, at 3215 Central Avenue NE in Nob Hill, is home to the Sunday Services of Bosque Center for Spiritual Living. We are in the beautiful back studio where the wooden floor, high ceilings, natural light, and art-filled walls bring a special warmth and character to the Sunday Service experience.

Maple Street Dance Space is also the location for most of our special services, some classes, most public performances (Arsonists Cabaret, Ho-Ho-Holiday Cabaret, and Spiritual Practice of Theater), and is the home of Storytelling in Nob Hill. This c0-creation of Storytellers of New Mexico, Maple Street Dance Space, and Bosque Center for Spiritual Living brings storytelling to the heart of Nob Hill every 4th Saturday at 7 pm.

Bosque Center for Spiritual Living feels very much at home at Maple Street Dance Space, and we have found that being part of a shared space helps us live our Community values much more deeply than if we had our own dedicated space.

Vision

Empowered, inspired individuals creating together a world of harmony and beauty.

Our Mission In Action

Bosque Center for Spiritual Living creates activities and spaces that nurture genuine connection and spiritual growth through music, service, and the arts.

  • We stand for both personal fulfillment and universal connectedness, manifesting a kinder and more loving world.
  • We practice open-hearted and open-minded spiritual realism, explored through the Science of Mind philosophy, New Thought, ancient wisdom, and our own immediate relationship with the Divine.
  • We create together. Together we co-create our lives and our world. Too, we recognize that through our purposeful participation we mutually create the togetherness for which our souls are thirsty.
  • We provide supportive structures in which we can do our work together with authenticity, mindfulness, and compassion — including weekly celebrations, classes, art and music, care and counseling, and sacred service.

Values

Bosque Center for Spiritual Living values fun, authenticity, integrity, service, personal accountability and shared responsibility, diversity, justice, beauty, and love.

The teachings of Ernest Holmes and the Science of Mind invite us into continuous practice of ever-expanding possibility and wonder. We embrace questions and paradox.

We honor every faith, philosophy, technology, and experience that brings us closer to ourselves, to each other, and to God.

Service & Justice Work

We work with, serve at, and sponsor a number of community organizations to help create a world of kindness, equality, justice, and care. Some of our partners have been:

  • Albuquerque Healthcare for the Homeless

  • The Lighthouse Mosque and Community Center
  • Mindful New Mexico
  • New Day Youth and Family Services
  • NM Gay Men’s Chorus

We are always looking for opportunities to serve

Centers for Spiritual Living

Bosque CSL is a member community of Centers for Spiritual Living, an international organization comprised of more than 400 spiritual communities, teaching chapters, study groups, and other ministries and 30 countries.  These communities teach a New Thought philosophy that brings religion and science together and offers spiritual tools to transform lives and help make the world a better place.  This is done through the study and practice of Science of Mind and Spirit, also known as Religious Science, which holds that all life is sacred — that each human being is an expression of God.

We believe in Cause and Effect and teach that “it is done unto you as you believe.”  In essence, our thinking and expectations create our reality.  Our teachings incorporate the ancient wisdom of spiritual traditions through the ages.  People of all spiritual paths are welcome in our communities.  We help people experience a personal relationship with the creator; promote a community of tolerance, understanding and respect; provide classes, programs, prayer and meditation; and advocate a safe spiritual community of like-minded people interested in living a spiritual life.

Our Global Vision is:  “A world that works for everyone.”
