About the Author
Award-winning author Edward F. Sylvia, M.T.S. has had a most unique spiritual journey; a journey that is by no means over. He has studied various approaches to spiritual transformation for over 40 years and has embraced the systems of Emanuel Swedenborg and George Gurdjieff. Both men are little known. Their ideas would remain strange and lost to the world if some individual did not emerge from their challenging influences to demonstrate their positive mutual effect both now and for the hereafter
Mr. Sylvia is the author of Sermon from the Compost Pile Seven Steps Toward Creating an Inner Garden and Proving God: Swedenborg's Remarkable Quest for the Quantum Fingerprints of Love. He also shares his insights regularly on his blog as TheGodGuy. He and his wife currently live on an 11-acre homestead in southern Illinois. They have been married and contributing to each other's spiritual growth for 36 years. He is a former volunteer at the Missouri Botanical Garden, past president of the St. Louis Publishers Association and enjoyed a long and prosperous career in advertising. The author feels that his successful marriage is his most important credential for attempting this current work.
