Exploring Consciousness with Peter Russell


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.
