David Verdesi had daily mystic vision as a child. At 14, he left home in search of their meaning and travelled all over the world for 30 years, researching and comparing his own experiences with those of 120 mystics, yogis, cave-dwellers, saints and genuine enlightened beings, Siddhas from the mountains and jungles of India and Xian immortals from China and Southeast Asia, the Shamans of Central and South America and Africa, the Mystics of old Europe and the mysterious saints of the northern Steppes of Russia, Tibet and Mongolia. This training and experience have given him a deep understanding of the individuation process, altered states of consciousness to the realization of wholeness. He has produced a three-part video series on his experiences called In Search of Superhumans, and he regularly travels to teach, lecture and mentor others on the path.
