This film, an independent production by cameraman and film-maker Tom Tanquary, is an attempt to capture the flavor of Peter Kingsley’s work and of the timeless tradition he speaks for.

Based on footage recorded at an extraordinary four-day event with Peter at the Abode of the Message in New Lebanon, upstate New York, it includes interviews with several well-known figures  including Huston Smith, Pir Zia Inayat Khan, Gregory Shaw and Cynthia Bourgeault. The film can serve as a helpful introduction for those not already familiar with the general scope and significance of Peter Kingsley’s teaching. It also presents in visual form a simple point of access to some of the essential practices of this ancient tradition, such as incubation and the practice of “common sense.”

A unique set of recordings, made at the same remarkable event on which this film is based, has now become available under the title EVERYTHING. For further details about these recordings click here.


”Finding Our Ancient Wisdom is a beautiful film. Peter Kingsley reminds us that the inner journey to find our source brings us to the experience of the true magic of life. During these challenging times he inspires and gives us great hope by showing us that the roots of our Western civilization contain the knowledge and wisdom we need for living life in a harmonious way. His work is brilliant.”
Sandra Ingerman, author of Soul Retrieval and Medicine for the Earth


“Here is an ancient wisdom made accessible. With simple imagery and profound words we are taken back to the birth of Western civilization, to rediscover the original note that brought our culture into being. Here is a spiritual truth that gives us the light we need, a sacred vision that can reconnect us with our own roots and help us to see our way out of our present darkness. Finding Our Ancient Wisdom is an invaluable contribution to giving us back our spiritual heritage, and the tools to live it now.”
Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee Ph.D., Sufi teacher and author
