MITCH HOROWITZ was raised in a world of Bigfoot stories, UFO sightings, and Carlos Castaneda books. He grew determined to find the truth behind it all—and today Mitch is a PEN Award-winning historian and the author of books including Occult America; One Simple Idea: How Positive Thinking Reshaped Modern Life; Mind As Builder: The Positive-Mind Metaphysics of Edgar Cayce; and the forthcoming The Miracle Club. Mitch has written on everything from the war on witches to the secret life of Ronald Reagan for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Salon, Time.com, and Politico. The Washington Post says Mitch “treats esoteric ideas and movements with an even-handed intellectual studiousness that is too often lost in today’s raised-voice discussions.” He is the voice of popular audio books including Raven, the “definitive account of the Jonestown massacre” (Rolling Stone), which is now in production as an HBO miniseries, as well as Alcoholics Anonymous and The Jefferson Bible. Mitch has discussed alternative spirituality on CBS Sunday Morning, Dateline NBC, CNN, and throughout the national media. He hosts the New Thought Channel series One Simple Idea, now in its second season.
Mitch speaks widely around the nation on topics of metaphysical interest, with some samples below.
