History of New Thought and Unity


History of New Thought and Unity Class

Just as one’s previous life experiences underlie one’s current expression, so the history of a tradition underlies that tradition’s current expression.  The foundations of Unity as a contemporary movement are explored in its roots in Transcendentalism, Christian Science and New Thought.  Students explore Unity’s History and original cultural milieu. They have the opportunity to consider the possibilities of Unity as an evolving cultural phenomenon.  This historical exploration includes exposure to ides, beliefs, and philosophies of the main “architects” of this stream of spiritual thought that in some ways has connection back to antiquity.
