The New Thought tradition dates back to the 1880s, and has its roots in the Transcendentalist Movement of the 1830s. New Thought has an enduring and respected legacy that includes luminaries such as Ernest Holmes, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Walt Whitman, Phineas Quimby, and Emma Curtis Hopkins. Our philosophy has influenced Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Michael Bernard Beckwith, Eckhart Tolle, and many others.
Our teaching, the Science of Mind®, was founded by Dr. Ernest Holmes in 1927. He taught a practical spirituality based on time-honored principles and ancient wisdom of all the spiritual traditions through the ages. People of all spiritual paths - Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, New Age, and others - are welcome in our communities.
