Recognizing the Achievement of Doctorate Level Study in Metaphysics
Metaphysics has always referred to the study of that which is beyond physics – First Cause and the Nature of Being. Since the 19th century, Modern Metaphysics is most often identified with New Thought Metaphysics or the New Thought Movement.
The New Thought Movement, as it is most often classified within a religious denominations chart in academia, has evolved into a religion unto itself with its own subgroups and multiple denominations, such as Divine Science, Unity, and Religious Science. However, independence runs strong in New Thought Metaphysics, and many offshoots remain unaffiliated, and some are still unnamed – even after many decades of established tradition.
In an academic university, an individual may choose to focus in any one of a few dozen specialties that fall under the general heading of, for example, Physics. In Metaphysics at a spiritual university, the same is also true – with much diversity of focus and purpose.
The American Metaphysical Doctors Association does not favor one Metaphysical belief system or Metaphysical practice over another. All American Metaphysical Doctors Association members are Ordained New Thought Metaphysical Ministers, and, as such, are well equipped to minister within any of the varied independent New Thought Metaphysical denominations.
The American Metaphysical Doctors Association reflects a small selection of the wonderful ways International Metaphysical Ministry students and graduates are contributing to the advancement and well being of their communities, their countries, and the world. Dr. Paul Leon Masters, founder of the International Metaphysical Ministry and University System founded the AMDA decades ago to recognize and bring honor to these high-minded and dedicated individuals.
