Lars Muhl gives a talk at Watkins Bookshop in London about ‘The Gate of Light’, his latest book which describes an ancient healing method used by the Essenes, or The Sons of Light, 2500 years ago.

Until the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1946, there was little known about The Essenes; a brotherhood of holy men and women living together within a community over two thousand years ago. The Essenes considered themselves to be a separate people, not because of external signs like skin colour, hair colour, but because of the illumination of their inner life and their knowledge of the hidden mysteries of nature unknown to other men.

Drawing on this ancient knowledge Lars particularly looks at: Grief and Happiness, Balance and Awareness, Selflessness, Boredom and Renunciation, Loneliness, Gratitude, Silence and Thoughtfulness.
