Philosophy Professor Dr. Theodore Kneupper explains the spiritual teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti. Krishnamurti is described as having a "clear-headed capacity to articulate the central problem of human existence and to point out the direction in which one may find a solution, while insisting on one's own responsibility of the discovery of real freedom and the realization of enlightenment." Dr. Kneupper studied with Krishnamurti in Madras, India, and has written and delivered papers on the subject at various international conferences.

Dr. David Noelle as Regional Director for the Council for Secular Humanism, explains the benefits of the philosophy of reason over theology. Secular Humanism is dedicated to "deploring efforts to denigrate human intelligence that seek to explain the world in supernatural terms, and who look outside nature for salvation."

Peter Shor explains the philosophy of spiritual teacher George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff. Gurdjieff is arguably "the most colorful, enigmatic, and charismatic man of the 20th Century." Gurdjieff's basic teaching is that human life is lived in waking sleep, and transcendence of this state requires a specific inner work. This leads to otherwise inaccessible levels of vitality and awareness.
