We live in a time of increased dialogue and sharing of spiritual wisdom and practices among people of different religious traditions. The Living Spiritual Teachers Project of this website spotlights teachers we encourage you to meet and study with (either in person or through their books) on your journey.

The Remembering Spiritual Masters Project profiles teachers who are no longer with us physically but still offer great wisdom through their writings, recordings, and films. We've included a brief biography, a list of the teacher's distinctive contributions to spiritual wisdom, a quotation sampler, plus links to our reviews of his/her books and audios, articles, interviews, audio and video clips, the teacher's website, and more.

This Project is very much a work in progress, so please check back often to read profiles of other spiritual masters.
