The role of Licensed Practitioner is to assist individuals in making changes in their lives by making changes in their consciousness. The fundamental tool of the Professional Practitioner is Spiritual Mind Treatment, Affirmative Prayer. Religious Science Practitioners are specifically trained to shift consciousness on behalf of and for the individual through the use of this tool.
Practitioners are spiritual coaches who teach spiritual principles and support individuals in using those principles to change their lives for the better, while knowing that Divine Love is present and always working in all lives. They assist individuals in adopting new beliefs, perspectives and attitudes. As the beliefs, perspectives and attitudes change, this changes the vibratory point of attraction of the individual and new conditions and situations are attracted into the life of the individual. In addition, they assist the individual in making ongoing changes in their consciousness and aligning their thoughts, feeling and actions with the new beliefs.
Licensed Practitioners use these same principles to assist organizations in making changes in their business products and services. An organization is simply the outer manifestation of the beliefs of the leaders and members and customer of the organization. Therefore, in order to change an organization, changes in the minds of the leaders, employees and customer of an organization are what cause changes in the organization. Practitioners work with organizations in making these changes in consciousness.
Becoming a Licensed Spiritual Practitioner is a four year journey. To begin, one must pass two years of certified Science of Mind classes that include Foundations (or Beyond Limits), Spiritual Practice, Self Mastery, Roots, and Financial Freedom. The application process then begins. If the panel of ministers & teachers feel the student is ready, they are then accepted into the practitioner program. Once in the program, students spent another two years of rigorous study and practice. After passing written exams and oral panels, individuals become licensed through The United Centers For Spiritual Living. Practitioners renew their license every 2yrs.
