About The Tour

If you’re a student of the mystic Neville Goddard, you know what a feature New York City plays in Neville’s lectures and stories. New York City was truly a core city in Neville’s imaginings. Neville dreamt about NYC in SEVERAL key stories and it was a STAPLE of his imaginal acts. Neville's description of his imaginal acts, and his thoughts on NYC itself show a deep love for the city.

Fascinatingly, New York is also a historic hub for New Thought, which serves as an incredible backdrop for Neville’s teachings.

Neville Goddard (1905-1972) was a mystic, author, and lecturer in the New Thought tradition. Born in Barbados in 1905, he emigrated to NYC in 1921. After experiencing success and acclaim as a Broadway theater dancer, he began his career as a New Thought teacher in 1935. He quickly rose to fame in the lecture circuit and earned the title: "Mad Mystic of Manhattan." 

Walk in the footsteps of the world’s most radical mystic.

This tour will help you connect deeper to the man behind the message. Travel in time with us to the setting where Neville worked, lived and taught.
When you leave this tour, the words from the lectures, books and stories will have come to life. You’ll leave with no doubt – the mystic was who he claimed to be.

Leave with a strengthened understanding of Neville’s key success stories, his theory, treasured techniques, and applications for our modern reality.

About The School of Imagination

We are awakening. We are remembering Who We Are. We are exploring the horizons of our individual and collective potential.

We've all felt alone at times wishing for a tribe of super conscious friends who we can share with in radical honesty and who would inspire and support us into being the highest, best versions of ourselves. We also know that while telepathic communication and technological platforms are everyday life for students of the School of Imagination, the 3D earthly human experience is what we are really here to enjoy! 

Goddard means 'a brave god'. We think this totally sums up Who We Are: Infinite Beings having spiritual adventures in "brave" human form. So, remember this: You have Goddards here. You are not alone.

Shveta Hariharan is an avid researcher, historian, and student of Metaphysics, Shveta is dedicated to the pursuit of personal transformation and the rapid growth and expansion of human potential through her work with the School of Imagination. She was the featured speaker for the 2021 Summer Lecture Series "Science and Neville" and is now bringing her research expertise to this retreat as the Lead Tour Guide for the Mad Mystic Tour of Manhattan in NYC, USA.
