About Global Spirit

Global Spirit is a unique television series that investigates the most urgent philosophical and existential issues of the 21st century, tracing the eternal, yet still evolving human quest for meaning, truth, and wisdom.

Global Spirit brings together ancient wisdom traditions with the perspectives of world religions and modern science to help viewers define who we are as human beings and explore how this affects our relationships with our families, our communities, the environment and with the world at large.

Weaving compelling film segments with informed, engaging studio conversations, Global Spirit offers an intimate, discovery-filled viewing experience. Presented by composers and musicians Carlos and Cindy Santana and hosted by writer, tour guide and spiritual seeker Phil Cousineau, Global Spirit brings together a rich mixture of philosophers, writers, scientists, religious and spiritual teachers and practitioners of a wide range of faiths and traditions.

Global Spirit gives Public Television viewers an opportunity to discover how people of various religious, spiritual, and wisdom traditions around the world think, believe and address life’s core, eternal questions. Whether Hindu, Islamic, Judaic, Buddhist, indigenous or animist-based, discussions of these philosophies and worldviews communicate so much about our shared human consciousness and human nature.

While shedding new light on different dimensions of faith, belief, and identity, each Global Spirit program serves to promote understanding, tolerance, and respect for different traditions and worldviews. The Global Spirit series is part of the expanding new genre of transformational media content that offers a shift in understanding of our relationship with ourselves, each other and our world.

Bill Moyers has said: “The discussions on the Global Spirit series are sorely needed in this dispirited and disenchanted world. In many ways, it is more important than journalism today.”
