The Seven Secular Sermons are:

  • the only guided meditations in verse and rhyme,
  • the only attempt to replace religion as a frame for mystical experience,
  • the longest poems, by far, ever written in the classic style of the common metre,
  • based on 20 years of meditation experience, 15 years of writing guided meditations and a few years of academic research into the psychology of religious ritual,
  • best enjoyed when listened to rather than read,
  • entirely in line with the current state of scientific knowledge and
  • so mindblowing they frequently move listeners to tears.

One thought on “About

  1. Daniel, I’m interested in taking a look at that paper you mentioned over on SSC, about your explanation of mysticism. I’m not a professional but I’m an intelligent atheist stuck in the middle of a group of New-Age enthusiast friends, and badly in need of some plausible ideas that don’t sound like “I think you’re a bunch of mental defectives”. 🙂
