The latest book by Tim Freke, Soul Story: Evolution and the Purpose of Life, is the culmination of a decades-long attempt to reconcile science and spirituality. Freke is best-known as the co-author of The Jesus Mysteries, which debunked the Christian view of Jesus. In Soul Story, Tim explores the theory of evolution, the nature of time, the immortality of the soul, spiritual awakening, and the evolution of God. He concludes that "Source is an emergent being of Love" and that "death is safe."

Hundreds of people have experienced deep love in Tim's "mystery experience" retreats in the US, Canada, and the UK and now Tim has created an "online world tour." These virtual events begin with the watching of a 30 minute film which explains the ideas behind Soul Story. Afterwards, Tim will join us for a live-over-Skype 30-minute Q&A.


Evolution has been a 13.5 billion year journey leading from the big bang to you right now, reading these words and understanding their meaning in your ‘psyche’ or ‘soul’. Is this just a fortuitous accident in a cosmos that exists for no reason?

Tim articulates a clear way of understanding the deep intuition that life is much more than that! He proposes that the process of evolution has not only seen the emergence of matter and life, but also the emergence of the soul-dimension that creates the magic and meaning of existence, which objectivist science ignores. Evolution is the momentous story of the self-realising universe, which is coming to know itself through each one of us; and this process doesn’t end at death, because the evolution of soul has been accompanied by the evolution of immortality.

Timothy Freke has an honors degree in philosophy and is the author of more than 20 books. He is a keynote speaker at major conferences and is regularly featured in the media internationally, as well as on Websites such as Ken Wilber’s “Integral Naked.” He runs seminars in the U.S., Europe, and South Africa exploring the experience of gnosis.
