Peter will talk about his new book which explores how most Christian icons can be traced back to an older origin. He has collected hundreds of spiritual symbols from world religions and shows how they have migrated from one wisdom tradition to the next, including objects, geometric shapes, body postures of deities, events – symbols one would expect and many surprises. He will show the importance of symbolic meanings and how the symbols live in our subconscious. The book is unifying in its treatment of different religions, showing how they all are very similar and how devotees are all nourished by similar symbols.
