Bridges of Wellness is aligned with the Emerson Theological Institute as an affiliated center approved to teach classes leading to an Emerson Theological Institute credential or degree. This means that we are bringing Religious Science and New Thought teachings into new paradigms and possibilities beyond the traditional centers format.

We offer classes and workshops that provide a rich spiritual curriculum for you to choose from. We train Religious Science and New Thought Ministers and Practitioners and also encompass a vast arena of specialized ministries.

Bridges of Wellness shall continue to develop its own unique classes, workshops, and healing modalities … such as our Reiki School, Family Constellations, Law of Attraction, Non-Duality study, Ho’Oponopono, and programming addressing nutrition and body wellness.

Our Practicing Religious Science and New Thought Ministers & Practitioners are: Rev. Dr. Charles D. Geddes, Rev. Kent Barnard, Rev Trish Fegan, Rev. Mary Jo van Dam and Dr. Ashley Herrin.


FOCUS: The major focus is on programs designed to further the Institute’s vision of awakening people to empowering Universal Principles and providing the educational resources to facilitate development of healthy relationships, spiritual communities, and realization of potential.

VISION: To accomplish its vision, Emerson’s core curriculum embraces the spiritual ideology of the presence of God in all life and the power of right thinking. It emphasizes the existence of One Life, One Mind, One Power, One Presence, in, as, and through all creation. All of Emerson’s courses of study and programs have New Thought as a foundation incorporating universal spiritual principles as found in world religions and teachings.

HISTORY: Since its beginnings in 1992, Emerson has promoted an understanding and embodiment of the Universal Principles so that each person can pursue unlimited spiritual, emotional, intellectual and social potential.

GRADUATES: Emerson graduates are co-creating at such professions as classroom teaching, art, writing, publishing, adult education, health and nutrition, business, curriculum creation, chaplain and ministerial work.

TEACHINGS: The teachings of Ernest Holmes, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Mary Baker Eddy, Emma Curtis Hopkins, Charles Fillmore, Thomas Troward and other greater teachers and philosophers are studied, as well as masters such as Jesus, Buddha, Lao-Tzu and others.

MODERN TEACHERS: Since learning is a life-long experience, the learner must be “open at the top” as Ernest Holmes so profoundly stated. In that endeavor and so that students can grow spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and socially, the writings of modern-day writers are examined. Stuart Wilde, Joel Goldsmith, Gregg Braden, John Randolph Price, Eric Butterworth, Neale Donald Walsh, Louise Hay, Eckhart Tolle, Wayne Dyer, Caroline Myss, Deepak Chopra, Don Miguel Ruiz and Thomas Moore, among others, are studied.
