ANTN is a worldwide network that includes New Thought centers, churches, organizations, independent ministries and ministers, Religious Science practitioners, licensed Unity teachers and chaplains, authors, speakers, musicians, podcasters, students and others who embrace New Thought principles, but don’t necessarily fit in any of those categories. In other words, ANTN includes you! We believe Divine Consciousness is the sole authority and value transformation, connection and community.
Maximum FreedomANTN supports organizations’ and individuals’ autonomy. Organizations have the freedom to decide their bylaws, organizational structure, etc. Churches and centers have the independence to develop their own curriculum, license their own lay leaders and Ministers and set requirements regarding their own members, size, location and focus. And, there is no restriction on them belonging to any other New Thought umbrella organization.
You Have a VoiceYou are eligible and strongly encouraged to vote at our Annual Meeting held each year at our Retreat. As a church, center or organization, you have two votes. With an individual or family membership, you have one.
Global ConnectionMembership provides a global connection to Independent Ministries and Centers, which include Senior and staff minister(s), practitioners and congregants, as well as to New Thought organizations and individuals with diverse backgrounds.
For Center MinistersYou have a network of ministers and speakers for occasional or long-term needs. We also provide support in your ministerial search through “open pulpit” postings. And, you are invited to participate in the ministers-only Facebook Discussion Group to share ideas and best practices.
The ANTN Book Project
In 2022, ANTN published "New Thoughts for Today" featuring over 200 inspirational articles by dozens of ANTN members.
It's available on Amazon and through this website.
Volume 2 is in progress now!
ANTN's second book, to be written by ANTN members and slated for publication in mid-2024, will be an anthology of stories, parables, poems, and other art forms aimed at demonstrating ways in which transformation occurs. The submissions are intended to show how the contributors have moved from experiences that no longer served them into expressions of greater livingness in areas such as prosperity, love, relationships, creativity, purpose and self-worth.
New Thought Media Network
ANTN members with a show on New Thought Media Network can also simulcast to subscribers on the ANTN Facebook page and YouTube channel.
