This article is about the spiritual author and mystic. For the composer, see Joel Goldsmith.
American spiritual author, teacher, spiritual healer, and modern-day mystic. He founded The Infinite Way movement. Goldsmith was born in New York City on March 10, 1892. His parents were non-practicing Jews, who were married in New York City in 1891.
Joel was their first child. They had another son two years later, followed by a daughter two years thereafter. In 1915, Joel’s father became critically ill while in England and word was sent to the Goldsmith family to come for the body.
However, according to Joel, his father was healed by a Christian Science practitioner in London. From his early adulthood, Joel Goldsmith had many spiritual experiences.
He spent many years in spiritual studies, reading original scriptures of Aramaic, Greek and Sanskrit origins. His first book, “The Infinite Way”, was published in 1948. After serving in the Marines during World War I, Goldsmith returned to work in the garment district of New York City where he owned his own business. While on a return trip from Europe, he developed pneumonia.
As was his father before him, Goldsmith was healed by a Christian Science practitioner who happened to be on board his ship at the time. In 1928, Goldsmith began to have strangers approach him on the street asking for prayer and healing.
