LOS ANGELES, Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Internationally acclaimed author and spiritual teacher, Michael Mamas, will film a three-part television special in Los Angeles on January 22nd and 23rd. The three-part series -- oriented and formatted for public television as well as for a video/DVD release -- will coincide with the introduction of Michael's latest book, "The Golden Frog." The themes of the television programs and the video/DVDs are: 1) Angels, Einstein and You; 2) Desire, Love and Longing; and 3) Healing, Parenting and Relationships.
Michael Mamas, who dedicates his life to bringing forth a wise and refined understanding of human development, simplifies complex and abstract concepts so they can easily be understood by a multitude of people. His unique way of teaching enables people to not only get an intellectual understanding of a myriad of subjects, but to experience the meaning of his words within the depth of their own being. Michael addresses all fields of human interest. Areas of thought that are often seen as conflicted are brought together. He unifies apparently contradictory religious teachings, merges Eastern and Western thought, and unites pure science with sublime spirituality.
The Golden Frog book follows the friendship of two boys in a series of enchanted childhood summers ... and beyond. Though each pursues his own quest for truth, Bruce and Nathaniel's paths entwine throughout life. Bruce becomes a psychotherapist trapped in the web of conditioning, while Nathaniel ventures to India, emerging as a revolutionary thinker. During his journey Nathaniel meets Surya, a spiritual master who teaches him extraordinary lessons and profound knowledge. As Nathaniel awakens to the wisdom deeply rooted within him, mysterious events unfold. With gripping passion, he penetrates the veil that cloaks spiritual wisdom. Through insightful and heartfelt interactions, he challenges all notions of reality. Witnessing Nathaniel's remarkable journey from ordinary to extraordinary, Bruce is changed forever.
