Every age has its teachers, who keep the eternal truths alive for all of us. In the case of Andrew Harvey, the light he sheds is like a meteor bursting across the inner sky.” Marianne Williamson, author of The Age of Miracles

 “I have reached a point in my life that feels a little like waking up or returning to some more essential part of myself that has been hidden through conditioning, fear and the need to confirm. I’m not in any way a scholar or expert [of mystical poetry] but feel drawn to learn more, and also very much to learn from Andrew. The chance to do that directly and in person seems too good to miss! I was thinking this morning how much this country needs people like him to spread some light in the darkness….”
