Did you realize just how profoundly those of us in the West have been impacted by the spirituality of the East? Described by Deepak Chopra as "illuminating" and "gracefully written", Philip Goldberg's latest book is American Veda: From Emerson and the Beatles to Yoga and Meditation, How Indian Spirituality Changed the West. The author or co-author of 19 books, Philip is a spiritual counselor, meditation teacher, ordained interfaith minister and public speaker.

In an eye-opening exploration of popular history, Philip shares how the influence of the East has intermingled with the unfolding tapestry of the American experience for over two hundred years. We will also discuss Philip's deeply insightful book Roadsigns On the Spiritual Path: Living at the Heart of Paradox, an honest and courageous guide to navigating spiritual dilemmas through a deeper discovery of self awareness.  We will aim to incorporate wisdom from Philip's newly re-released definitive book on intuition The Intuitive Edge: Understanding Intuition and Applying it in Everyday Life.

Philip's work has attracted critical acclaim from respected reviewers and spiritual wayshowers, as well as multiple awards. He has appeared on several high profile broadcasts, including The Today Show. The Huffington Post named American Veda one of the top ten books on religion for 2010, and the American Library Association's Booklist Online bestowed a similar honor on the book in 2011.
