Faith Factor | Inspirational Cinema — ‘What Is New Thought?’

Special to the Sun

This month’s inspirational cinema feature is “What Is New Thought?” on Sunday, May 25, at 6 p.m., at the Center for Spiritual Living Tahoe-Truckee, 700 North Lake Blvd., Tahoe City, above the marina.

Would you like to know more about the history of New Thought and how it relates to our world today? Although the influence of New Thought has been widespread throughout our culture, most people have little knowledge about this far-reaching spiritual movement.

Join a special screening of the new film “What is New Thought?” by Jon Miller. New Thought messages are being spoken by leaders and teachers every day, including the self-help industry, Alcoholics Anonymous, Oprah Winfrey, Joel Osteen, Deepak Chopra, Iyanla Vanzant and Wayne Dyer.

The principles of this New Thought movement have been instrumental in transforming the lives of millions of people. This original film gives a closer look at the history of New Thought philosophy.
