Be yourself! Don't let anything bring you down!
What is Transcendentalism?
An idealistic philosophical and social movement that developed in New England around 1836. Influenced by romanticism, Platonism, and Kantian philosophy, it taught that divinity pervades all nature and humanity, and its members held progressive views on feminism and communal living.

Strategies to spread Transcendentalism
They did lectures, sermons, speeches and discussions. They also created a club to discuss their views on religion. One of the main strategies that had a high result was education reforms. In the same way, they wrote books explaining the advantages and positive things that might happen.

Who's the Main Leader?
Ralph Waldo Emerson was the father of Transcendentalism followed by Henry David Thoreau, Margaret Fuller and a few others.
I will put it on social media and let others know the advantages of joining us. I could put it on a bill board saying:
TRANSCENDENTALISM: Be yourself!
I'll also create a club and try to pull people like our leader, Ralph Waldo Emerson. I'll follow his footsteps and do what he did.
