New Thought Philadelphia is a loving Community of Spirit & service.

  • Spirit is our awareness of our connection to the Infinite - the creative Power that has created everything, and continues to create.
  • Service is the way that we channel that Power to bring more good into the lives of those around us.
  • Self denotes our personal, individual capacity to embody that Power. We are each a balance of Spirit & service bringing Love into our lives.

Each individual in our group is on encouraged to share the passions, joys and insight that are part of his or her path with others. We do this through our public Celebrations and programs, educational activities like classes & workshops, and through volunteer activities that support New Thought Philadelphia and others in the larger community around us.

It's also fun, with small groups that meet for social, recreational and adventure activities. Want a spiritual group for hiking, or scuba diving, or knitting, or dinner? Start one - we'll help!

ArrivalThe ideas of communication, intention, surrender and Love that are wrapped up in the film "Arrival" have already made their way into our Sunday morning talks.

Join us for a screening of this powerful 2016 Oscar-winner. If you've never seen it, you'll love the way it brings alive Ralph Waldo Emerson's phrase, “Life’s a journey, not a destination”. If you've seen it several times, you're sure to pick up something new from a fresh look.

A new Spiritual family

Thank you so much for a wonderful Life Visioning class! It truly has been the highlight of my life for the last few weeks and I am looking forward to the next course offering! I feel as if I have found a new spiritual family and I am happy that I have been welcomed with open arms.
