Phineas Quimby


American spiritual teacher, philosopher, magnetizer, mesmerist, healer, inventor, an avid proponent of mental healing. His philosophy is outlined in his book, "The Quimby Manuscripts," 1921.

Known as "Park," Quimby had very little formal education, but he became an accomplished clockmaker, inventor and daguerreotypist. He set up a practice in Portland, Maine and kept busy with his healing work.

Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science, has sometimes been cited as having used Quimby as inspiration for theology. Eddy was a patient of Quimby’s and shared his view that disease is rooted in a mental cause. Because of its theism, Christian Science differs from the teachings of Quimby.

Quimby died on 16 January 1866, Belfast, Maine. Much of his work was published after his death under the title, "Phineas Parkhurst Quimby: The Complete Writings," 1988.

Burt Granite quotes American Astrology 3/1952 with date 6 Feb 1802, 11:33 pm; Tom Csere writes that he has 16 Feb 1802.

In March 2015, Kim Strickland wrote by email "Not Feb 6th but February 16th per his son's article (George A Quimby) in the New England Magazine Volume 6 Issue 33, March 1888, and from the book edited by Ronald A Hughes Editor The Complete Writings and Beyond Time. I just adjusted to 2PM as chiron would be in the sixth house."
