Learning to listen to the inner voice, living in relationship, suffering and liberation, finding providential help along the way, and much more are covered by Needleman as he speaks to the depth and breadth of the spiritual search. He emphasizes the power of the oral tradition and the need to be open and receptive to truth when it appears. (hosted by Michael Toms)
