About Us


Mesilla Valley Center for Spiritual Living

Vision Statement: To awaken the world to its limitless potential.

Mission Statement: To teach and model the universal principles of Science of Mind and Spirit.

The Mesilla Valley Center for Spiritual Living is a New Thought organization based on the teachings of Ernest Holmes’ Science of Mind. We are a small but committed group of individuals inspired by these teachings and enthused by the depth of knowledge and life-long devotion of our spiritual leader, Dr. Carol Carnes, to the principles of New Thought.  As eager as we are to deepen our personal understanding, we are also keen to share with the larger community and surrounding area the transforming message of this teaching. “We can no more do without spirituality than we can do without food, shelter or clothing.” (Holmes, 1938)
