HUSTON SMITH is recognized and revered as the preeminent teacher of world religions and a prolific author. He was the focus of the five-part television series The Wisdom of Faith hosted by Bill Moyers. Holder of twelve honorary degrees, Smith’s fourteen books include The World’s Religions which has sold over 2.5 million copies, and Why Religion Matters. His film documentaries on Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism, and Sufism have all won International awards.

PHIL COUSINEAU is an award-winning writer and filmmaker, teacher and editor, lecturer and travel leader, storyteller and TV host. His fascination with the art, literature, and history of culture has taken him from Michigan to Marrakesh, Iceland to the Amazon, in a worldwide search for what the ancients called the "soul of the world." With more than 25 books and 15 scriptwriting credits to his name, the "omnipresent influence of myth in modern life" is a thread that runs through all of his work. His books include Stoking the Creative Fires, Once and Future Myths, The Art of Pilgrimage, The Olympic Odyssey, The Hero's Journey, Wordcatcher, and The Painted Word.
