Jeff Bien is an internationally acclaimed poet and musician, and spiritual practitioner. His work has been published, and translated in more than thirty countries.
He has spent a lifetime of study and practice, and is fluent in a myriad of traditions, as well as formal academic study of both exoteric and esoteric teaching, that bridge the mystical traditions of East and West.
He is presently completing a book, “Songs of Non-Separation”, a compendium of teachings, interpretations, and exegesis that transcends the literal and allegorical, weaving the thread of the many garments into one.
"A Taste of Creation" and "Songs of Forgiveness and Prayer" his newest CDs, bring together poems, song and music born of a lifelong adherence to an evolving spiritual practice.
Widely regarded as a charismatic and compelling voice, he has recently begun to release a series of spiritual talks, and excerpts from his forthcoming books, which adds synthesis to both a personalized conversation with a young seeker, as well as more formal views of spirituality and religion, including the secular sacred.
True to Blake’s epigrammatic, `excess is the road to wisdom’, Bien’s own incendiary journey birthed the road to awakedness. His work is visionary in scope, and is reflected both in the written word, his music and the spiritus of explicit practice itself, integrating a trinity of meditation practice that includes; Buddhism, Sufism, and Samadhi yoga, with elements of the Kabala, and unique breath and body movements borne of a nascent study of pranayama and martial arts.
His teaching work emphasizes the heart practice of Buddha mind, and Christ consciousness; a lineage of Love, as an in-gathering of the many traditions, birthing non-separation. It is this that distinguishes him from so many, in both the new age, and classical spiritual canon.
