The Importance of New Physics to New Thought
This paper was presented at the spring 2014 Colloquium of the Johnnie Colemon Theological Seminary, Miami Gardens, FL. Within the major US-based New Thought ministerial training programs, we find a landscape of great contrast with regard to literacy in the area of The New Physics. This paper presents reasons why New Physics appears in New Thought religious education at all. An overview follows of the New Physics approaches currently found in ministerial training programs in Unity, Centers for Spiritual Living/Religious Science, Affiliated New Thought Network, Universal Foundation for Better Living, Agape, and Divine Science. While many individual approaches certainly exist, instruction falls under two main camps: the Amit Goswami “primacy of consciousness” camp and the Ken Wilber “postmodern quantum metaphysics camp.” These models are further defined as are upcoming terms from the business world. The paper also includes a draft curriculum for a New Physics module at the Johnnie Colemon Theological Seminary.
