The Seven Secular Sermons are:
- the only guided meditations in verse and rhyme,
- the longest poems – by far – ever written in the strict classic style of the common metre,
- the only attempt to replace religion as a frame for mystical experience,
- entirely in line with the current state of scientific knowledge,
- 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 and
- so mindblowing they frequently move listeners to tears.

One thought on “About”
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”. 🙂
