New Thought World Congress in Paradise Valley
May 31, 2012 09:30PM
The 97-year-old International New Thought Alliance (INTA) is thriving. With hundreds of member groups such as Unity, Science of Mind, Divine Science and independent metaphysical centers and thousands of individual members, its principles and values, considered unique or different many decades ago, are widely adopted and promoted.
The world congress this year will be held from July 17 to 21, at the Embassy Suites, in Paradise Valley. Hundreds of New Thought ministers, teachers and lay members will gather for spiritual friendship and attend classes and lectures. Early morning risers will enjoy meditation and Tai chi sessions.
Adherents emphasize constructive thinking, holistic living and independent investigation of higher realities. Most are interested in spirituality and actualizing their innate potential to be fully conscious and freely functional, rather than follow formal religious traditions or practices. Many prefer a vegetarian diet and a lifestyle that also nurtures the environment.
Offices and extensive archives are located in Mesa, and New Thought magazine has an international readership. Reverend Blaine Mays has been the INTA president for more than 30 years.
