Nation of Yogis


About Philip Goldberg

Despite having been raised by atheists who disdained religion, Philip Goldberg was drawn to the pragmatic mysticism of the East, which ultimately led him to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s Transcendental Meditation. He worked for the TM organization and taught meditation for much of the 1970s, until he began to pursue his passion for writing with an article on meditation for a national magazine, followed by a book about TM. While producing personal works of fiction and non-fiction (including a screenplay), he continued his lifelong quest for higher awareness and intimacy with the Divine.

During his years of teaching meditation, running spiritual support groups, and counseling people on spiritual matters, he helped to create the Forge Institute, a non-profit devoted to the promotion of transtraditional spirituality and global spiritual citizenship. He was also the founding director of the Forge Guild of Spiritual Leaders, and, with his wife, started Spiritual Wellness and Healing Associates (SWAHA). He has continued to write and publish books on spiritual topics, including Making Peace with God, Roadsigns on the Spiritual Path: Living at the Heart of Paradox, and American Veda, which covers the history and influence of India’s spiritual teachings in America.
