We live in a world where religion and spirituality have widely been misunderstood. Godlessness prevails over mankind. Many of us don’t comprehend the meaning of what is sacred – or if the notion still even still exists. We have no notion of inner peace. We are told to doubt rather than be certain. We are told to prove rather than believe. Consumerism and materialism reign supreme over belief and devotion in a world of profanity.
The ancient traditions, spiritual truths, practices and religions of the world can aid us in bridging the gap between modern man’s current state and the undeniable thirst for meaning.
For 6 years I have been traveling, studying and teaching what I know. Seeking knowledge from the ancient traditions of the world, to find the answers to quench our undeniable thirst for meaning – in search of the sacred
