A tongue-in-cheek introduction to New Thought Philadelphia, showing that we have a sense of humor, and are willing to use powerful tools in a whimsical way.

Spiritual, not Religious

We're a non-denominational spiritual community anchored in the ancient wisdom of all of the great traditions. We each create our life according to our beliefs using the proven techniques of Practical Spirituality. It’s not a secret! These universal keys to healing, harmony and the life we desire are summarized and explained in clear, everyday language free of dogma or limitation.

5th Sunday Healing Celebration

Sunday October 30

rossbellenoit cropOn months with a fifth Sunday, we gather for a special Healing Celebration. Rev. Bill Marchiony and Rev. Dave Schpok lead us in a deep and profound process through which we all gain greater insight into our connection with Spirit. It includes a powerful interactive Healing Prayer for everyone present.

Live, original music by the immensely talented Ross Belenoit.

We gather every Sunday from 10:30-11:45 at the CA House, 118 S. 37th Street on the UPenn campus (bet. Chestnut & Sansom).

Silent meditation begins at 10:10.

Each Celebration is a blend of inspiring words, personal spiritual practice and fellowship with bright Lights of Divine Love just like you. It's a hands-on approach to make the concepts of Practical Spirituality accessible in a powerful and personal way.

Intenders Circle

A new Connection Group

Meets 3rd Wednesdays
7-9 pm in Maple Shade, NJ (optional potluck dinner at 6pm)

This group meets on the 3rd Wednesday every month to explore the Intention Circle process. It lets members support each other in a positive way, and creates a group energy so the intentions set by each participant can manifest more quickly and effortlessly. The meeting follows guidelines crafted by The Intenders of the Highest Good, a group that has been around for over 20 years and has had a great amount of success.
