WHAT IS NEW THOUGHT

Despite its name, New Thought isn't actually new.

New Thought tradition originated in the 1880s and draws inspiration from the philosophical idealism of Classical Greece and the Transcendentalist Movement of the 1830s. It's origins go back to classical Greek philosophy and P. P. Quimby, the founder of New Thought, even claimed that the movement had rediscovered Jesus' healing methods. New Thought combines philosophical idealism with a practical focus on addressing humanity's challenges and promoting healing.

Throughout its history, New Thought has been shaped by influential figures such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thomas Troward, Emma Curtis Hopkins, Phineas Quimby, and Walt Whitman. Present-day authors who embody New Thought teachings include Michael Bernard Beckwith, Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, Byron Katie, Caroline Myss, Gregg Braden, Eckhart Tolle, and many others.

The teachings of New Thought encompass the wisdom of various spiritual traditions across time. Our community welcomes individuals from all spiritual paths and those who are seeking a spiritual path of their own. We embrace the ancient wisdom of diverse spiritual traditions as we strive to create a nurturing space for everyone.
