Female Thought Leaders of the 19th Century - Volume 1
As a Woman Thinketh highlights female New-Thought leaders of the 19th Century. Each volume provides insight into these forward-thinking philosophers and re-introduces their work. Women have been traditionally left in the shadows of the philosophical movements that evolved through our history. By revisiting these amazing women, we glimpse the genius of their minds and begin to see the path they left for us to follow.
From Mysticism to Metaphysics, from Philosophy to Spirituality, from Consciousness to Prosperity, these volumes grapple with questions that go to the heart of the human experience. “Cogito, ergo sum - I think, therefore, I am,” Descartes summarized. Women like Geneviève Behrend thought outloud. In this volume, we listen and observe her life and her teachings.
Geneviève was born sometime in the 1880s (accounts differ). In 1915, she married Hugo Behrend in Manhattan. Hugo died in 1924 but left his wife with the means to survive and thrive. Geneviève traveled to Cornwall, England to study with renowned philosopher and writer, Judge Thomas Troward. When she returned to the U.S., she established her famous School of the Builders where she taught her own version of Troward’s teachings. Later, she remarried and traveled the country lecturing and writing. She died in Boise, Idaho in 1950, while traveling. Geneviève is interred at the Mausoleum in Portland, Oregon.
