Thomas Parker Boyd


"One day, when a family member was very sick, I prayed. I promised that if the Great Physician would come out of the Unseen and touch the sick one back to life, I would go and do what I was called to do. Next morning the sick one was greatly improved and was soon well."

He attended the University of California and Church Divinity School of the Pacific where he earned a Doctorate in Divinity.

While serving as Rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in San Francisco(1906), Dr. Boyd learned of work being done by the psychology department of the University of California, Berkeley, and introduced himself to and later worked with Dr. George M. Stratton, President of the American Psychological Association, and Professor of Psychology at U.C. Berkeley on the use of hypnosis to treat epilepsy.

Dr. Boyd studied psychology at U.C. Berkeley, earning himself another Doctorate. He then used hypnosis with other professors, clergymen and doctors on the West Coast.
