More on Lost Masters:
Lost Masters goes beyond what you will learn in a classroom, or read in a philosophy textbook. It is an exploration of the deeply roote Western tradition that vears striking resemblance to the wisdom of EAstern spirituality. Although the Greek sages profoundly influenced Western culture and spiritual practice, many of their essential beliefs and practices have been lost in the West.In this book it is easy to see how what they taught is as relevant today as it was two thousand years ago.
