Book of Knowledge - Season 2

The Mediterranean

The Quest For Meaning

On a quest for meaning to redefine modern spirituality, David Verdesi is urged to uncover the core reasoning behind instinctive human desire for transcendence, altered states of reality, spiritual yearning, awakening and rebirth. Traveling the world 30+ years, David finds himself back in Rome, his family’s home base since the early 1400s.

Season 2 addresses the questions around the intersection of spirituality, science and religious ritual, community, psychedelics, and anthropology. Alongside esteemed scholars and experts including Ian Baker, Dario del Bufalo and Father Francis Tiso, David explores historic knowledge, performs qualitative research, and conduct interviews with those experiencing the phenomenon of non-religious spiritual journeys. David travels to uncover the roots of humanity’s existence throughout the Mediterranean, meets with mystics and royals and visits to ancient ruins. Verdesi is willing to embark on any journey to reach transcendence.
