OWL global citizen Andrew Vidich Ph.D., is an author, academic, consultant and international speaker in the fields of meditation, mysticism and leadership. With a Ph.D. in Religion with a specialization in Islamic Sufism and the transformational methods within religious traditions, he has taught university courses ranging from Religion and Islamic Sufism, to Death and Dying. As a life-long student of three spiritual masters within the Sant Mat tradition — Sant Kirpal Singh, Sant Darshan Singh, and Sant Rajinder Singh — Andrew also serves as a respected teacher and leader in that community. His newest book, co-authored with Arthur Stein and published in November, is Let there Be Light: Experiencing Inner Light Across the World’s Sacred Traditions.
Let There Be Light explores seven of the world’s great spiritual traditions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and Sant Mat. It leads the reader through a history of each tradition, highlighting its great stories, ideas, historical periods, and leaders. The common thread that ties everything together is Light (always capitalized in the book). Light as an image of the Divine, as metaphor, and also as an actual reality that followers of the mystical, inner practices of each tradition can experience.
