  • William Samuel

    William Samuel (4)

    William Samuel, (September 2, 1924-May 22, 1996) was a prolific writer of truth, science, religion, and spiritual awakening. William Samuel was known as the "teacher's teacher" perhaps because so many teachers came to study with him. There was an inordinate number of philosophers, theologians, and members of the academe. In the later years there came physicists and mathematicians. It seemed to William that he would get the most earnest and dedicated students of Truth. Quite a number of Taoists and Buddhists had found William's message and came to study—even some who were called Masters. Many have gone on from his study to become authors, writers, and teachers.   READ MORE »

    Lee Scantlin (4)

    After 18 years of progressive alcoholism, Lee finally reached a “bottom” and received enough Grace to get sober. Very soon after embarking on his new path, he was given a copy of "Living The Infinite Way" by Joel S. Goldsmith, and discovered a great thirst, which is not yet satisfied. Working with Joel’s writings, pursuing the thirst, led to him Ram Das’s writings, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (Osho) in Pune and Rajneeshpuram, several years with Robert Adams and back to Joel's students including Herb Fitch, Barbara Muhl, Meg Johnson and Doris Crawford. In 1994 Lee began playing Joel's tapes one night a week, for himself and 2 others, at his home in Hermosa Beach, CA., and a small group grew around this weekly gathering.    READ MORE »

    Lorraine Sinkler met Joel Goldsmith in 1949 before she had read any of his books, but knew at their first meeting that he would be her teacher. She later became the editor of most of his books and the Monthly Letters that were done until she stopped doing them in 1981. She worked with Joel closely both as a student of The Infinite Way and as editor of so much of his work. She also opened The Infinite Way Study Center in Chicago and ran that for many years, at the same time developing the ability for spiritual healing and being a practitioner for many. She also was giving classes far and wide. When Joel died in England in 1964, Lorraine completed his schedule of classes.                 READ MORE »
