The Voice of Thomas Troward - Edinburgh Lectures

One of the major influences in New Thought was Thomas Troward. Troward was a major influence on Ernest Holmes and many other 20th century New Thought leaders.

During previous new thought classes, we have read some bits Troward's writings. In this class we will explore his work the Edinburgh Lectures which was written over 100 years ago, yet retains powerful insights.

Give your left brain food and knowledge that your heart already understands.

Explore the logic of universal laws and consciousness principles through the pioneer writings of Thomas Troward, British judge and metaphysician, whose knowledge and consciousness "permeates Ernest Holmes' writings." In this practical study reveal the Unity of Life and the impersonalness of the Law through Troward's logical explanations of abstract concepts of Spirit and Matter. Immerse yourself in the wisdom of a master and unleash the subtle reality that is the creative power of your mind and action.
