Berkeley, California (EastBayDaily) — Global Spirit, the popular "internal travel series" on PBS and Link TV, returns with a new season on March 2, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. PST / 9:00 p.m. EST. Presented by John Cleese and hosted by Phil Cousineau, author of Burning the Midnight Oil, the season kicks off with "The Search For God," exploring the perspectives, practices, and realities of God. Special guests Dr. Jacob Needleman, author and professor, and Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, President of the Sufi Order International and founder of Seven Pillars House of Wisdom, will join Cousineau.
Global Spirit offers insights into some of mankind’s deepest existential questions, tracing our collective human journey in the timeless quest for truth, wisdom and understanding. Each Global Spirit program highlights the trans-cultural, transcendent dimensions of human inquiry, from the ancient or indigenous wisdom traditions to the latest advances in scientiï¬c knowledge. Global Spirit has, for the ï¬rst time on national television, done what the Mars Rover did for space: beam back a celestial wonder, a glimmer of what is possible in the realm of human consciousness, spirit and the mind.
