Monthly Message from AGNT President, Dr. Michael Beckwith
Planetary healing through self-realization and spiritually-motivated activism
is the new promise of these teachings.
Once called the "religion of healthy-mindedness" by the philosopher, William James, the New Thought movement was born almost 150 years ago as a revolt against the negative dogmas so prevalent in the churches of that day. The early New Thought movement was driven by the discovery that physical healing was possible through the power of mind and spiritual awareness. As that initial idea unfolded into successful application, practitioners of New Thought began to see that the power of an uplifted consciousness could also bring healing to negative circumstances and conditions in one's personal life. As it evolves today, twenty-first century New Thought is driven by a far broader intention. Planetary healing through self-realization is emerging as the new promise of these teachings.
The Association for Global New Thought (AGNT) is a 501c3 organization born out of a deep conviction and pure passion to give our movement a clear voice and commanding presence on the global stage. It serves alongside the existing major New Thought entities to seek out, and provide new opportunities within and outside our churches and spiritual centers for direct engagement with other faiths, cultures, and issues worldwide. On this site, you will have the opportunity to directly participate in our carefully crafted programs in spiritually-guided social action. Whether your intention is to learn, be trained, find others of like mind, or find strategic tools to bring direct benefit to yourself and to your community and beyond, you have come to the right place.
We invite you to learn more about this movement and its global initiatives for peace, justice and healing, and in the process discover your own spiritual calling. Welcome!
