New Thought is a philosophy of personal growth and spiritual practice through powerful skills that expand our understanding of life and how it works.  NTNC provides ongoing education through classes, workshops, seminars and community gatherings. Learning opportunities help us increase our knowledge of spiritual principles and how to apply them in our daily lives.  When we read, study, meditate and discuss these ideas together, we grow individually and in community to make our world a better place for everyone.
