2008. Scholar and author Peter Kingsley has spent his life uncovering the forgotten secret right at the roots of western civilization. The teachings of the foundational figure of Empedocles have been studied for centuries, but Kingsley took a new approach that led him straight to the hidden heart of Empedocles' meaning. The result was a startling discovery with enormous implications: Empedocles, one of the West's great philosophers, was a mystic. The foundation stone of so much of western science, philosophy, and culture was not the legendary Greek rationality of the textbooks but a profound, living spirituality. This film shows us how much we have forgotten but it also shows us the way to regain our lost heritage and become what we were meant to be. Kingsley demonstrates throughout the film how even the most common things, done consciously can change our lives. New condition. Item #12391
