At this evening event, Peter Russell will focus on his latest book, Seeds of Awakening. He writes: “We are in the midst of a widespread spiritual renaissance, rediscovering in contemporary terms the timeless wisdom of the ages. We are seeing through the apparent differences of the world’s faiths, past their various cultural trappings and interpretations, to what lies at their heart. As we strip away the layers of accumulated obscurity, the core message not only becomes increasingly clear; it gets simpler and simpler. There is a growing recognition that awareness of our true nature does not need studious reading of spiritual texts, years of meditation practice, or deep devotion to a teacher; only the willingness to engage in a rigorously honest investigation into the nature of awareness itself. Not an intellectual investigation, but a personal inquiry into who and what we truly are.”
