Joel Goldsmith (1892-1964) studied the ancient philosophical, religious, and mystical texts of all the major religions. From these studies he formed an understanding of the truth that runs through all these texts. From this understanding, Joel presented his mysticism to the world in a variety of writings. We look at his teachings from the standpoint of his writings, especially his first few books outlining what he called The Infinite Way.
George was raised in a home in which his father was a student of Joel Goldsmith. Leone’s father became involved in Joel’s group, The Infinite Way. He came to direct the Infinite Way Study Center in St. Petersburg, FL for 20 years. Since George had degrees in philosophy, he and his father had frequent discussions about the mystical philosophy of Joel. From these discussions, George formed a high regard for the teachings of Goldsmith.
