What is a Modern-Day Spiritual Path?

In this talk, A.H. Almaas discusses spirituality in modern times. Watch as he explains what a true spiritual path is and isn’t, how it differs from structured religion, and how a path and a spiritual community can support us in navigating both the challenges we face in ourselves and those we encounter in the world.

Over 3000 people from all over the world signed up for this special event that took place on February 5, 2023. Together, we discovered how spiritual practice is needed now more than ever and the ways it can help shift humanity into a more loving, unified place.
