This series presents engaging, contemporary, fresh views about these religious traditions, belief systems or philosophies, as it travels around the world to meet teachers, scholars and practitioners to discover and see what the eternal questions are all about. With intros and closing comments by John Cleese, who has a strong interest in these types of programs, it blends compelling film segments with engaging conversations as it engages such well-known public television voices as Deepak Chopra, Karen Armstrong and Robert Thuerman to shed new light on our deepest eternal questions around the human quest for meaning, truth and wisdom. Hosted by author Phil Cousineau, critically acclaimed Global Spirit takes viewers on an engaging, experiential journey. Exploring such ideas as "Forgiveness and Healing," "Oneness" and "The Spiritual Quest," "Sacred Music" and "Sacred Art" and "Human Consciousness," the series looks at relationships between ancient wisdom traditions, world religions and modern science, showing viewers why these ideas might matter to us.
