Edwin John Dingle (April 6, 1881 - January 27, 1972) was a British journalist, editor, and writer who was active as a correspondent in China, Tibet, India, and Burma in the early twentieth century, notably during the Xinhai Revolution of 1911. During this time abroad, Dingle became interested in Tibetan Buddhism, yoga (pranayama), and related Eastern esoteric traditions and stated he had been initiated by Tibetan Lamas, his particular synthesis of their practices with New Age Christianity becoming the basis for teachings later promulgated through his Institute of Mentalphysics; in furtherance of these teachings, Dingle founded the International Church of the Holy Trinity, First Church of Mystic Christianity, at Los Angeles, and a "New City of Mentalphysics" at Joshua Tree, the latter with buildings designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

    A strange man in Los Angeles, known as "The Voice of Two Worlds," reveals the story of a remarkable system[...] The man, a well-known explorer and geographer, tells how he found these strange methods in far-off and mysterious Tibet, often called the land of miracles by the few travelers permitted to visit it. He discloses how he learned the rare wisdom and long hidden practices, closely guarded for three thousand years by the sages, which enabled many to perform amazing feats. He maintains that these immense powers are latent in all of us, and that methods for using them are now simplified so that they can be used by almost any person with ordinary intelligence. He maintains that man, instead of being limited by one-man-power-mind, has within him the mind-power of a thousand men or more as well as the energy-power of the universe which can be used in his daily affairs. He states that this sleeping giant of mind-power, when awakened, can make him capable of surprising accomplishments, from prolonging youth, to success in many fields.
