The Unity movement was founded by Charles Fillmore (1854–1948) and Myrtle Fillmore (1845–1931) in Kansas City, Missouri in 1889 after Mrs. Fillmore had been cured of her tuberculosis, she believed, by spiritual healing. As a result, the Fillmores studied spiritual healing and shared their insights through magazines, books and pamphlets. In 1890, the Fillmores developed a prayer ministry called Silent Unity,an international prayer ministry that offers people help through prayer and counseling, as wells publishes the Daily Word.
Influenced by Emma Curtis Hopkins and Mary Baker Eddy (the founder of Christian Science), Myrtle and Charles Fillmore began the Unity School of Christianity, a new thought and metaphysics school that develops ministers and other leaders who live spiritual principles and inspire transformation. The growth of the movement and school led to several moves within Kansas City, and eventually, after World War I, to the development of Unity Village, 15 miles from Kansas City.
Today, Unity’s headquarters at Unity Village, Missouri, provides a tranquil atmosphere for quiet meditation and a place for all people, regardless of faith or nationality, to worship. The prayer, publishing, education and retreat ministries provide people around the world with positive, spiritual messages of hope, healing, prosperity and peace.
