Darlene Dunning and learn about how New Thought came to be, what stimulated its emergence and how Spirit can empower you today. Where did Ernest Holmes get that idea? Three individuals had great influence on Holmes’ writings: Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emma Curtis Hopkins and Thomas Troward. Each one gave him a key piece to his philosophy: Emerson taught him about “Soul”. Hopkins gave him a deeper understanding of “Mysticism”. Judge Troward aided Holmes in understanding the workings of “the Law”.  Join the dialogue on these three authors and their influences on Holmes’ writing. You will compare their ideas and wrestle sometimes with finding the truest application of their truths to your daily life. This course is a giant conversation! Certification Hours:  30 Textbooks:  The Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes, Emerson’s Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson, The Edinburgh Lectures by Thomas Troward, Scientific Christian Mental Practice by Emma Curtis Hopkins Prerequisites:  Beyond Limits or Foundations
