The Infinite Way Study Group
The Infinite Way is a spiritual teaching of universal principles introduced to the world by the internationally recognized mystic and spiritual teacher, Joel S. Goldsmith.
In 1948, Mr. Goldsmith published a book containing these principles which, he called The Infinite Way. Soon after its publication, groups of students began to arrive asking for classes about the message contained in the book. This was the beginning of what was to be a worldwide ministry. For the rest of his life, Goldsmith traveled the world teaching others the spiritual reality underlying these principles and a higher, more harmonious way of life.
At the heart of the Infinite Way message is the premise there is a living presence within every person, an inherent spirituality, which is the substance and source of their life. Through practice and with dedication, this living presence can be experienced directly and vividly. Goldsmith taught his students that the experience – that which he called the “realization of oneness” – is not a one-time event, rather an unfolding “infinite way” of life, where any individual, regardless of age, religion or circumstance, may come into his or her natural life of clarity, harmony, love and freedom. As he writes in the introduction to The Infinite Way,
“Be assured inner peace will come as one turns to the spiritual consciousness of life, and an outer calm will follow in one’s human affairs. The outer world will conform to the inner awareness of Truth. … The authority for all of this revelation will be you – as you yourself experience this change within and without.”
Though Mr. Goldsmith was adamant that the Infinite Way never be organized with a set of rules or a charter, today, growing numbers of individuals and groups around the world continue to study and practice the principles embodied in the message.

Joel S. Goldsmith, an internationally acclaimed spiritual teacher, is recognized as the leading figure in bringing mysticism to the Western world in the 20 th and 21 st centuries. Today, authors and lecturers from all walks of life consider Goldsmith a key influence of their own spiritual growth, including The Secret‘s, Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith, who uses Joel S. Goldsmith’s books as course material in his Spiritual Foundation Classes. Following are quotes by others:
“A new generation of mature seekers, receptive to spiritual truth, is now discovering Joel Goldsmith’s teaching’s, which have lost none of their relevance, aliveness and power. I foresee that those teachings will reach and impact even more people in the 21st century than during his lifetime.
Joel Goldsmith’s inspired and profoundly inspiring books represent a vital contribution to the spiritual awakening of humanity.”
– Eckhart Tolle Author of: The Power of Now
“I have an 8×10 picture of Joel Goldsmith on my writing table. I feel his presence with me everyday – I consider Joel to be one of my most important teachers. His wisdom guides me in all of my work.”
– Dr. Wayne Dyer Author of: The Power of Intention
“Joel Goldsmith has opened a door in my soul. He has helped me immeasurably in my search for peace.”
– Marianne Williamson Author of The Gift of Change
Mr. Goldsmith taught the principles that are contained in the New Testament, but presented them in a way that revealed their inner secret. The core of his work was dedicated to spiritual healing, the nature of error and meditation. His message was clear – the quest for the Holy Grail, for enlightenment or ultimate fulfillment, was to be found, through commitment and dedication, within ones own Self.
Goldsmith was born in New York City on March 10, 1892. As a young man, he left school before graduating, and traveled the world, practicing principles that brought him a successful business career. Struck by his observations during his journeys, seeing man’s inhumanity to man and the ravages of poverty and injustice in the cities of the world, he began to search for the reasons man has to suffer and fear, to war and die.
A pivotal moment in his life occurred when, as a young man, he visited a Christian Science practitioner and received an instantaneous healing of an illness. From that time, Goldsmith dedicated his life to seeking the principles underlying that healing. This was the beginning of what was to be a long and fruitful healing practice and spiritual ministry, years in which he immersed himself in a deep study of the scriptures of the world.
In 1948, Mr. Goldsmith wrote a book he called The Infinite Way. He felt this book was the culmination of his long career of teaching and healing and after its publication he prepared to retire and lead a life of contemplation. The message in this book, however, was explosive and soon individuals and then groups of individuals were coming to Goldsmith’s doorstep asking for instruction. This led to talks and classes given to small groups in his home. Soon, larger rooms had to be obtained to accommodate the many who were coming to learn more about this revolutionary message of enlightenment. And so Goldsmith, continuing his active healing practice, now added lecturing and teaching classes to his “retirement”, a spiritual journey which was to take him around the world many times over. Mr. Goldsmith never advertised, organized, or promoted his work, but within his eighteen years of presenting this message, he sold millions of books to hundreds of thousands of readers and students around the world. His spiritual teachings are also contained in hundreds of hours of recorded class and lecture work. He passed away in London in 1964.
