Global Spirit TV

August 21, 2013 | Leave a Comment


I enjoyed talking with Phil Cousineau at the Book Passage Travel Writers and Photographers Conference, and was reminded about Global Spirit, the exceptional TV series he hosts. Connect with Global Spirit on Facebook, and watch it on PBS.

“Global spirit is a unique inquiry into humankind’s belief systems, wisdom traditions, and states of consciousness. Presented by British actor and writer John Cleese and hosted by author and spiritual seeker Phil Cousineau, this unique, critically-acclaimed series features renowned experts such as Karen Armstrong, Deepak Chopra, Robert Thurman, Raine Eisler, and many others. Mixing evocative film segments with deep discussion, Global spirit takes viewers on a mind and soul-expanding journey, exploring relationships between ancient wisdom traditions, diverse belief systems, world religions, metaphysics and modern science.” (If that isn’t travel, don’t ask me what is.)

“Each week [Global Spirit] brings together scholars and other experts from different religious and philosophical backgrounds, not to sell a faith or argue hot-button issues, but to discuss universal themes like forgiveness or the nature of the spiritual journey.”
—The New York Times

“the discussions on the ‘global spirit’ series are sorely needed in this dispirited and disenchanted world. In many ways it is more important than journalism today.”
—Bill Moyers
