Joel Goldsmith (1892-1964) was born in New York City. He was a teacher of practical mysticism, devoted most of his life to the discovery and teaching of spiritual principles which he founded and called The Infinite Way. He had been a very successful Christian Science practitioner until the mid 1940’s, when he left that and wrote his first book, The Infinite Way in 1947. After its publication Joel traveled throughout the world as a teacher and a healer, giving hundreds of classes. Although his message was neither organized nor advertised, students of The Infinite Way increased as people from around the world shared his spiritual wisdom.
He is the author of approximately fifty books, most of which have been edited from the hundreds of recordings which were made during his classes.
