For those not living near a teaching center, Emerson offers an extraordinary array of courses via distance learning.

Core Curriculum: To accomplish its vision, Emerson's core curriculum embraces the spiritual ideology of the presence of God in humankind 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.

Teachings: Emerson offers students a golden opportunity to be immersed in the wisdom of humanity's greatest spiritual masters, such as Jesus, Buddha, Lao-Tzu and others. A broad variety of courses also focus on the work of authors such as Ernest Holmes, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Mary Baker Eddy, Emma Curtis Hopkins, Charles Fillmore, Thomas Troward and other great teachers and philosophers.

Modern Teachers: Since learning is a life-long experience, the learner must be "open at the top" as Ernest Holmes so profoundly stated. To ensure that Emerson's curriculum continues to evolve in its depth and breadth, and so that students can grow spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and socially, the writings of recent and contemporary teachers form part of your study, including individuals like Stuart Wilde, Joel Goldsmith, Wayne Dyer, Carolyn Myss, Deepak Chopra, and Thomas Moore, among others.
