Exploring Consciousness with Peter Russell | sivanandabahamas.org

Exploring Consciousness with Peter Russell

Please share what you do in 10-15 words: I seek to distill the essence of the world’s spiritual wisdom and present it in terms relevant to today.

Why do you do what you do? I believe humanity is in a deep spiritual crisis and needs to find ways out of the materialist mind.

What are you currently fascinated by in your work? The arising of ego from pure awareness.

How did you come to your path? Any aha moments or key teachers? It’s been a gradual evolution. My first teacher was Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

What book(s) are you currently reading? “The Life of the Cosmos” by Lee Smolin.

What surprises you about presenting here? There was so much happening in a relatively small space, in such a gentle way.

Peter Russell is the author of ten books including The Global Brain, Waking Up in Time, and From Science to God, and a leading thinker on consciousness and contemporary spirituality, integrating both Eastern and Western understandings of the mind. As one of the more revolutionary futurists, Peter has been a keynote speaker at many international conferences in Europe, Japan, and the US. His multi-image shows and videos, The Global Brain and The White Hole in Time, have won praise and prizes from around the world.
