The sciences have established that the body is subject to the mind, and that healing happens naturally when the mind is in alignment with natural processes. From Phineas Parkhurst Quimby in the mid-1800s to Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson, and thousands of others in the 21st century, the New Thought movement in America has produced a marvelous lineage of healers and teachers who understand these principles, making it a powerful force for health and abundant life around the world. This little book introduces these powerful healers, giving us a glimpse into their lives, discoveries, and teachings, and helping us understand their insights and abilities in the context of modern scientific thought.
