"As Above, So Below," "Man was made in the Image of God," "Tat Vam Asi (That art Thou)." These great sayings form the core of spiritual philosophies the world over. In them lies the great secret of Spirituality, that the individual human being, and the divine, share a singular relationship of profound mystery.

And as individuals must have a code, how much so for nations? Every other Saturday, at 11 am Pacific, Join Elias Wilkin as he explores the intersection of politics, ethics and spirituality.
