When people meet artists – painters, poets, musicians – whose works they admire, they are often surprised to discover that the person and their behaviour are completely devoid of the beauty found in their creations: they emanate neither light, nor poetry, ...
This book describes the deeply moving itinerary of an exceptional human being,
Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov, a man who offered simple but infinitely effective methods to deal with the difficulties of everyday life.
His methods respond to our own deep-felt need to love better, to know more, to live healthy lives as members of the truly fraternal human family for which he worked all his life.
It is this, no doubt, that explains the recognition he has gained throughout the world. Every year, hundreds of thousands of readers from every cultural background – agnostic, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Jewish, oriental – discover his published talks.
Seven years of research among friends of Mikhaël’s youth in Bulgaria and his mature years in France, as well as the study of several thousand documents in the archives of his talks, enable Louise-Marie Frenette to reveal to us this man’s extraordinary power to endow the word 'life’ with a transcendent sense of immediacy and radiant joy.
The author, a novelist and essayist, has given us an exceptional biography,
the most accomplished and most fully documented work about Omraam
