JOHN LUNDIN is a self-described “spiritual agitator” and the author of THE NEW MANDALA – Eastern Wisdom for Western Living, written in collaboration with His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
He was recently invited by the shamanic Elders of the descendants of the Tayrona in northern Colombia to be one of the few outsiders to ever live with them and receive their sacred teachings. The Elders have specifically asked him to share their urgent spiritual and environmental message with the world.
Rev. Lundin earned his Master’s Degree in theology from Chicago Theological Seminary at the University of Chicago, and teaches world religions and cross-cultural spirituality, and leads meditation workshops and spiritual growth retreats throughout the world. He is currently living with the indigenous peoples of La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia while researching and writing on issues of universal responsibility toward all humankind and the environment within which we all live.
