Overview

From Phineas Parkhust Quimby in the 1850s to Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson, Michael Beckwith, and thousands of others in the 2000s, the New Thought movement in the U.S. has produced a marvelous lineage of healers and teachers. In The Science of Mental Healing, Dr. Ruth L Mille introduces some of the leaders and explains how what they teach works, giving us a glimpse into their lives and teachings, along with the modern experimental and theoretical science that supports them, and helps us begin to practice some of their insights and methods.
