This was a product of the New Life Centre / New Education University Centre in London, a New Thought venture of Orlando Edgar Miller and Paul Tyner. The Centre featured regular services on Sundays, with talks by the principals. The journal was very high-toned and intellectual in its approach and seems not to have prospered. Contributions by a host of minor English New Thought figures and by Mabel Gifford Shine, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, and others. In addition to the Centre, Miller had a Healing Home business and the Miller Institute, a New Thought sanitarium -- and probably house of assignation. Miller was in Wormwood Scrubs for manslaughter from October 1914 to January 1915, during which interlude the journal was probably edited by Paul Tyner, a frequent contributor. On Miller and his exploits, see the notes under Psychological Review of Reviews and Chapala Round Table. NYPL; University of Cambridge.
