Book of Knowledge

Journeys of the Wayfarer

Anthropologist and host David Verdesi documents a cross-cultural journey to the root of humanity, the foundation, and anthropological core of our existence, embracing its whole history and the transformative contributions of the peoples who have shaped the geography of what it means to be human.  

Meet mystics, yogis, cave-dwellers, saints and genuine enlightened beings, Siddhas from the mountains and jungles of India and Xian immortals from China and Southeast Asia, the Shamans of Central and South America and Africa, the mystics and royals of old Europe, and the mysterious saints of the northern Steppes of Russia, Tibet and Mongolia.

The study of humankind’s sacred anthropological and spiritual history commonly lacks in diversity and multicultural themes, depth and true understanding. Through the power of storytelling, David Verdesi’s Book of Knowledge aspires to expose and preserve these treasures of our sacred past for generations to come to come.

About David Verdesi

As a wandering anthropologist over the last 30 years David Verdesi travelled all over the world in search for one thing: life’s purpose.

David Verdesi has dedicated his life to the actualization of the individuation process through applied mind training, comparing wisdom traditions and methods of askesis and its archetype through the hero’s journey, the phenomenology of human potential and altered states of consciousness.

He has culminated years of personal askesis and practice into the realization of an algorithm that can be applied to navigate, explore and integrate the human psyche into wholeness, the development of human potential and the maximization of happiness.

These experiences formed an instrumental part of an ongoing work of enrichment and comparison, contributing valuably to the successive phases of the development of his teachings.

It wasn’t until years later that Verdesi realized his odyssey had much greater meaning than these physical, geographical experiences – his journey allowed him to discover, retrieve and relearn the lost parts of his being, soul and mind. It became clear that everything we are doing as we go through the journey of our life is meant to connect, create, and discover who we truly are, ultimately allowing us to reach wholeness.

Season 1

Asia

Odyssey To The Soul

David Verdesi takes us along on a journey of exotic, unforeseen adventures in the Asia Pacific, learning ancient spiritual and bodily practices by enlightened beings, monks, shamans, special forces and philosophers for experiences very few individuals have endured. From Borobudur in Java, to the Dayak tribe of Borneo, to the depths of China and the Buddhist Kingdom of Bhutan.

The Root of Our Energy

The Root of Our Energy

Everyone should become the anthropologist of their own lives. The nature of desire and creative energies that develop along the journey of becoming whole are the root and primal dimension of who are as human beings. David Verdesi begins his journey of the mind by reflecting on his igniting experiences in Indonesia to thread together what is means to be human and manifest the liberating energies inside our soul to emerge into vertical flight.

Mind Over Matter

Mind Over Matter

In the geography of our being, where are you? When we are asked to answer this question and pinpoint such a specific place, we must look inside ourselves and silence the mind; where intent goes, energy flows. 

Coming Soon
The Realm Beyond

The Realm Beyond

David Verdesi’s final travels are to Nepal, China, Papua New Guinea and the Buddhist Kingdom of Bhutan, where Chung, a Tibetan Buddhist master explores our divine connection, internal energy and spirit path to liberation at the secret practice, Sky Gate.

Season 2

Europe

Roots Of Historical Affluence

For thousands of years, European soil has coveted the forefront of intellectual, spiritual, social, and economic endeavors. A longstanding history of human development, the continent is considered the birthplace of Western Civilization. From early developments dating back to the first Paleolithic settlement of hominins, to the cultural evolutions established by the Ancient Greeks, to the Renaissance and Enlightenment – the historical affluence of Europe is a universal force and undeniably significant to global modern-day societies. 

Anthropologist and host, David Verdesi, travels to the roots of humanity’s existence, the foundation, and the anthropological core of Europe, embracing its whole history and the transformative contributions of its peoples who have shaped the geography of what it means to be human.

David Verdesi meets mystics and royals, visits ancient ruins and discovers unique, untold treasures which can be attributed to Europe’s beautiful history, making it the unique crossroad it is today.
