About the author
Mervyn Brady was a friend, teacher, and mentor - beloved by many around the world. From the moment when he experienced a profound awakening of his soul, Mervyn dedicated his life to sharing his understanding of how to find and keep a Divine connection alive within the complexities of our lives. Through his example, he showed us that our place in the world, our time on this planet, has great meaning. In 1989, Mervyn founded The Academy of European Art and Culture, a school dedicated to disseminating and preserving the tremendous contributions of our forefathers. He spoke passionately about the spiritual treasures of the Western world which had lay buried for centuries in Europe. Through his many presentations on religion, art, music, philosophy, poetry and mysticism, he illuminated this knowledge for many souls. Starting first in London, then moving to Los Angeles, Mervyn eventually established an International school which spread from Europe across the United States and Mexico.
