What Is New Thought?

The New Thought tradition dates to the 1880s and has its roots in the philosophical idealism of Classical Greece and the Transcendentalist Movement of the 1830s. New Thought isn’t particularly new; in addition to classical Greek roots, P. P. Quimby, the founder of New Thought, was to have said that the movement had only rediscovered Jesus’ method of healing. New Thought combines this philosophical idealism with a practical concern for healing humanity’s ills.

New Thought has an enduring and respected legacy that includes luminaries such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thomas Troward, Emma Curtis Hopkins, Phineas Quimby, and Walt Whitman. Some of the better known authors today whose writings represent our teachings are Michael Bernard Beckwith, Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, Byron Katie, Caroline Myss, Gregg Braden, Eckhart Tolle, as well as many others.
