From “the Indiana Jones of the spiritual world” (Utne Reader)—a groundbreaking look at original spirituality with a unique and all-encompassing approach to life that comes from the world’s most ancient religion.
The Kalahari Bushmen are the keepers of the world’s oldest living culture. In spite of colossal challenges and never-ending crises, they have survived for over 60,000 years with joy and peace—yet their spiritual teachings, the source of their enduring wisdom, have never been fully presented.
For the first time, these ancient oral traditions have been put down onto paper taking you through the veil of original spirituality, connecting the fragments of world religions to a source that is unlike any other. Through this wisdom, you can find the deepest meaning, fullest purpose, and highest joy in life.
The Bushman’s Way to Tracking God is articulated through twelve original mysteries, including: activating the non-subtle universal life force (what the Bushmen call n/om), heightening emotional experience, vibratory interaction, direct downloading and absorption of sacred knowledge, extraordinary healing, activation of the ecstatic “pump,” spontaneous ways of rejuvenation, attending the spiritual classrooms, so-called telepathy, an uncommon range of mystical experiences, and last but not least, total bliss.

“This is probably the most important spiritual book of the decade. The origins of the human relationship with the divine are here. If you want to understand the human relationship with the spirit at its source, then here it is.” —Rupert Isaacson, author of the NewYork Times bestseller The Horse Boy
