GLOBAL SPIRIT is a unique inquiry into humankind’s belief systems, wisdom traditions, and states of consciousness. Presented by British actor and writer John Cleese and hosted by author and spiritual seeker Phil Cousineau, this unique, critically-acclaimed series features renowned experts such as Deepak Chopra, Karen Armstrong, Robert Thurman, Riane Eisler, and many others. Mixing evocative film segments with deep discussion, Global Spirit takes viewers on a mind and soul-expanding journey, exploring the relationships between ancient wisdom traditions, diverse belief systems, world religions, metaphysics and modern science.
From the ecstatic state of the Turkish Whirling Dervishes to the personal journeys of American combat veterans who return to Viet Nam in search of forgiveness from their former enemies, GLOBAL SPIRIT blends compelling, experiential film segments with spontaneous, engaging studio conversations to shed light on mankind’s deepest questions, tracing the eternal, yet still evolving human quest for meaning, truth and wisdom. GLOBAL SPIRIT guests speak from first-hand experience about their own personal journeys into the realms of human consciousness and transformation — conversations unlike anything you’ve heard before on national television.
We call GLOBAL SPIRIT the first “internal travel series”, because we believe that real change starts within. Watch our new series and we think you will agree.
GLOBAL SPIRIT is produced and directed by Stephen Olsson.
