THE THOUGHT EXCHANGE
David Friedman makes a sensational change
In an effort to give back and pass on the knowledge he has accumulated in his multi-faceted career, David has created a metaphysical method called The Thought Exchange.
Originally developed by David in The Artist’s Support Group which he led here at Unity of New York, as a way to empower artists and help them achieve their goals, The Thought Exchange has taken on a life of its own as David travels the country bringing this easily graspable yet life-changing technology to people in all walks of life.
Through his association with Unity Churches, David first began expanding his Thought Exchange work by doing workshops at Unity of Fairfield County, CT, The Sacred Center In New York City, Trinity Retreat Center in West Cornwall CT, Unity of Clearwater, Florida, The Unity Convention Cruise in Alaska, The International New Thought Convention in Scottsdale, AZ, Unity of Tulsa, OK and Unity of Wichita, KS. In recent years, David has added Unity of Dallas, Unity of Chicago, Unity of Phoenix, Unity of Pittsburgh, Unity of Laguna Hills, Fellowship for Today in East Lansing, MI, Unity of Hartford, CT, Unity of North Houston, Unity of Tampa, Unity of St. Petersburg, Unity of Palm Harbor, Unity of the Gold Country, CA, Unity of Seattle, Unity of Bellevue, WA, Unity of Yakima, WA and Unity of Portland to the list of places where he has lectured and/or presented Thought Exchange workshops.
When David’s Off-Broadway show began to travel the country, he began doing Thought Exchange workshops for theater companies in Milwaukee, WI, Tulsa OK, Eureka, CA, The Florida Chautauqua Festival and Birmingham AL, where one of the workshops included both teenagers and senior citizens. In Tulsa, David expanded the areas in which he did his workshops, offering them to a school for disturbed teenagers, students at Tulsa University, Oklahoma City University (a school famous for turning out numerous well-known Broadway stars,) a meditation and metaphysics group, a bereavement organization for parents who have lost children, a support group for divorcees, and several other colleges in the area.
Recently David was asked to be the keynote speaker and give a Thought Exchange workshop to 150 women lawyers at the Oklahoma Women’s Bar Association. This was so successful that he was asked to add an extra workshop two days later for the leaders of the organization.
Several years ago, David’s work came to the attention of a major corporate coaching organization. Called “The Smart Bomb”, David is often called in when all else fails, to work with high-level executives and teams in Fortune 500 companies on both business and personal issues.
Several years ago, at the request of members of the show-business community, David created a Thought Exchange workshop for singers. Called Finding Your Inner Voice, the workshop applies the principles of Thought Exchange to singing and acting.
David also does this work in private sessions, dealing with issues ranging from career to health, prosperity, personal relationships and just about anything that is going on in a person’s life that they might want to work on. He has developed a substantial private clientele both in New York and in cities to which he travels.
The applications of Thought Exchange have proven to be extremely wide-ranging, offering the possibility of benefiting people in every situation and in every walk of life.
David regularly offers workshops in Thought Exchange and Inner Voicein New York City and Connecticut. He is also available for Sunday talks, lectures, private sessions and Thought Exchange and Inner Voiceworkshops in other cities as his schedule permits.
In addition to this book, The Thought Exchange – Overcoming Our Resistance to Living a Sensational Life, David is the author of two New Thought pamphlets, Is Tithing For Me? – A Practical Exploration of Tithing, and Is Forgiveness For Me? – For Those Who Have Tried and Just Can’t Seem to Do It.
