Agnes Mary White Sanford (1897-1982) is considered to be one of the principal founders of the Inner Healing Movement. She was the daughter of a Presbyterian missionary in China and the wife of the Episcopal priest Edgar L. Sanford. Her first book, The Healing Light, is often considered a classic in its field. Sanford was the mother of John A. Sanford (died 2005), the Jungian analyst and author.

Sanford was a key figure in the Charismatic Movement in the United States during the 1960s through to about 1980, mainly through her writing. Her books include an autobiography titled Sealed Orders.

Education[edit]

Sanford attended Peace College, which was at that time a two-year college. Subsequently she applied to Agnes Scott, but did not meet all of their requirements and was admitted as a non-degree (or "special" student) in the class of 1919. She studied there for two years.
