Tim Freke is a philosopher and internationally respected authority on world spirituality. He has been exploring spirituality since a spontaneous awakening at age 12 and now guides others directly to the "deep awake" state.
Freke gained a reputation as a scholar and free-thinker for his cutting-edge theories about life, death, and why we are all here. He has contributed groundbreaking work on Christian Gnosticism. Together with Peter Gandy he wrote The Jesus Mysteries, which was declared "Book of the Year" by the Daily Telegraph and was a top 10 best seller in both the United States and the United Kingdom.
He developed the concept of Stand-Up Philosopher, a vision of the philosopher as a traveling spiritual entertainer and thinker who transforms consciousness by presenting new ideas with humor. A sought-after speaker and thinker, he has been featured by BBC and The History Channel. A prolific writer, he has written 35 books that have been translated into 15 languages.
