New Thought Classes are a spiritual journey toward personal healing and transformation.
It is important to understand that all New Thought Educational programs
are by their nature theological or spiritual as opposed to strict academia.
New Thought is a spiritual movement that reaches back to the 18th Century.
In addition to this, New Thought is not a closed faith based spiritual system.
This means that there are a variety of approaches to spiritual development within New Thought.
New Thought has a variety of forms. While all New Thought forms are inclusive, some lean on Abrahamic Thought,
others on Vedic Thought, some have a Buddhist core, others lean upon Ancient Nordo-Celtic Wisdom
and some have a strong indigenous foundation.
Students in our programs are encouraged to explore the existing cannon of New Thought works
and create projects which elucidate these various streams of New Thought
while exploring important relevant contemporary developments such as:
Recognition that the Divine
is Feminine and Masculine, both and neither.
Recognition of the Partnership Paradigm
explored in the work of Riane Eisler.
Recognition that healthy sexuality between consenting adults is an important aspect
of a healthy and happy life.
Recognition of the Partnership Paradigm
explored in the work of Riane Eisler.
Recognition of the work of Thomas Picketty which reveals
a path to shared prosperity and opportunity through Democracy and Civil Society.
Recognition that novel paths within the New Thought movement
which enfold those principles which form the foundation
of New Thought, including recognition of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR)
are the key to meeting the evolving needs of Humanity
Recognition that superstitions of all kinds obscure the path to recognition of the Divine within,
thus true spiritual paths recognize the insights of science and the truth that while Ancient Wisdom
can provide a foundation for fuller expression of Spirituality, no Ancient Spiritual path regardless
of the Thought Stream from which it is derived provides the ultimate indisputable answers
which will insure the growth of the individual, community, society or species
such that the Divine Mandate of Humanity exploring the Solar System, galaxy and Universe.
Recognition that Co-Creation is a core concept within New Thought which liberates humanity
from the deterministic beliefs that constrain some from taking responsibility for themselves,
or their part within the destiny of humanity through
acting out infantile desires while pinning the responsibility for their actions upon
the "will of God."
Recognition that while each person's reactions to their experiences form their emotional consciousness,
and each person's thoughts and actions are formative of their experience, life is not artificial reality,
living beings are real and together we are responsible for creating paradise here and now through honest recognition
of circumstances as they are, working together to maintain the biodiversity of our beautiful world,
creating the circumstances that provide a firm foundation for fulfilling lives for all souls.

Lotus Sutra New Thought
The Lotus Sutra is the essential New Thought Buddhist teaching.
Inspiring millions to success and happiness,
the Buddha declared the Lotus Sutra to be his highest teaching.
We have all heard the ignorant declare "The Buddha taught life is suffering."
- In this course we will dispell such ignorance through exploration of The Four Noble Truths which comprise the essence of Buddha's teachings. We will examine the first Noble truth which is in fact that "Life is challenging, but there is a difference between pain and suffering, and suffering can be avoided through understanding the second noble truth which is there is a source or cause of suffering which is unexamined desire, then understanding the Third Noble truth which is we can overcome all challenges and avoid any suffering, through mastery of The Way, which is the path that overcomes all challenges and eliminates all suffering.
- When you are done with this course, you will know that Buddha taught that life should be a celebration of joyful creation and transformation.
- In his final teaching, the Lotus Sutra, the Buddha teaches that life is real
and that people can overcome challenges through the powers of wisdom and compassoinate action. The Lotus Sutra provides multiple metaphysical roadmaps to joyful living, success in all endeavors and how to create a better life for oneself and all the lives we touch.
Abrahamics 1 - Old Testament
Middle Eastern Abrahamic Religion has dominated the thought of millions of people around the world for thousands of years.
it all began when a group of people left Egypt sometime after the death of Akhenaten. Escaping bondage to a pantheon of Gods,
they traveled through the Reed Sea. After a period of "Exodus"
they eventually arrived at Jericho, slaughtered the inhabitants and began their history.
Within New Thought the stories of the Old Testament are interpreted as metaphysical fables written by divinely inspired ancient mystics.
Abrahamics 2 - The Gnostics
An exploration of the Gnostic teachings, including the Gospel of Mary reveals that the traditional Orthodox condemnation of the Gnostics
was rooted in the politics of religious competition. We examine the errors inherent in some earlier writers examination of the Gnostic teachings
and the deeper truths taught by the Gnostics who were acquainted with both near eastern and far eastern traditions.
We also explore the pre-Gnostic Essenes and how they influenced table manners and eating habits of those who wish to live healthier lives.
Abrahamics 3 - Creation of Orthodoxy
Judaism has sprouted a new branch. It's adherents call their novel form of Judaism "The Way."
They are saying that they know better than the priests at the Temple in Jerusalem.
This is becoming a problem. The Temple enforcer, a Roman Citizen named Saul
is doing his job killing off the adherents they have labeled "Christians" (a denigrating insult to their spiritual path).
Saul realizes he is being strung along by the Temple Leadership. They have no intention of making him a priest.
He undergoes a dramatic conversion to the new Christianist path.
Realizing that he was not an original disciple, he sets out to destroy the lineage system.
He then applies Greco-Roman values to Christianity (Christianism).
Constantine realizes that with a bit of adaptation through fusing Mithraism and Christianism,
and the support of the wealthy Alexander Family in Egypt, he can re-energize the empire.
Constantine's new Christianism serves the state and supports the empire.
The Gospels are purged of all texts that do not support his vision and the Old Testament is added
as it serves to support traditional Greco-Roman patriarchal values.
Abrahamics 4 - Battle of the Bureaucrats
Constantinople vs Rome, attempts to crush European Science and Culture.
In 476, the vendetta, subterfuge and decadence lead to the failure and fall of the Western Roman empire.
Rome is a backwater. Constantinople continues its position as the center of the new Abrahamic faith and technology.
Europe begins a cultural transformation as the Abrahamics use coercion, violence, rape and murder of educated people,
in particular wise women,
to displace indigenous Nordo-Celtic spirituality.
A steady imposition of dominator values inherent in both Greco-Roman and Middle Eastern cultures
slowly displace the more advanced egalitarian cultural values.
Women's rights were eliminated. Ignorance and superstition replace Celtic Science and Justice.
Druidic teachings of professional qualification and the Bardic School are forced underground.
Because we believe in Prosperity Consciousness and therefore follow a
non-profit spiritual pattern as opposed to a corporate pattern,
we reach a wider audience than any other New Thought organisation.
Therefore an increasing number of New Thought Teachers
are approaching us with classes that they want to teach.
From basic classes to advanced classes leading to qualification
as a New Thought Practitioner, Teacher, or Minister.
Teachers submit their class descriptions, syllabus and materials
so that we can check the classes out for you.
We do our best to review the material and ensuring
that the class material is good, but the class is only as good as
the student learning and the instructor teaching.
Disruptive behavior in any class is not tolerated.
We only promote classes with the Universal New Thought seal of approval,
meaning that they can be transferred between participating ministers and do not
require you to physically travel to any location except voluntarily to complete your studies.
We do our best to insure that classes are part of a curriculum that will lead to
a definite certificate / qualification as long as you complete the requirements of the syllabus.
For those desiring ordination we cannot guarantee ordination in any modality of New Thought
or by any person or program. Ordination is a spiritual sacrament, thus you must complete whatever
requirements are individually required by those you are training with.
Teachers are provided with a wide range of dynamic teaching tools which are already on our servers.
There is a course for every New Thought Principle.
Teachers around the world are joining us to insure that you can expand your consciousness.
We work to insure that you have the finest tutelage
which is not simply rooted in the desire to make a profit
but to genuinely teach you New Thought principles and empower you.
Participating teachers work on tithing and donation basis. students pledge between one dollar and five dollars per day for one year per class. These tithes go directly to the spiritual teacher.
Teachers tithe 10% to support these New Thought resources
This program was created in response to seekers suggestions.
So many seekers have wondered why the majority of online classes are expensive and
don't always lead to qualification.
When seekers go to the majority of spiritual centers they are able to get
tutelage on a tithing and donation basis. Now seekers are able to do the same when learning New Thought.
We are constantly improving access to New Thought books and teachings world wide.
We do our work on a tithing and donation basis believing that together we are building a
more compassionate world right now!
