New Age Bible and Philosophy Center

The New Age Bible and Philosophy Center is a Rosicrucian study center in Santa Monica, California, founded in 1931 by Mary Elizabeth Shaw. Though Shaw led the center, it was also for many years a vehicle for the teaching activity of Corinne Heline and her husband, Theodore Heline. Corinne Heline was a prominent student of Max Heindel, founder of the Rosicrucian Fellowship, and she remained a member of the fellowship through the 1920s. During this period she began work on metaphysical Bible interpretation, a project that eventually resulted in a seven-volume series. In 1930 she married Theodore Heline, and they founded the New Age Press and affiliated with the center in Santa Monica. Many of the Helines' writings remain in print and may be obtained from the center.

Shaw was succeeded by Rev. Gene Sande, who after many years was succeeded by the present leader, Rev. Patricia Tallis. The center is located at 1139 Lincoln Blvd., Santa Monica, CA 90403.
