It’s not easy living in our materialistic world and striving for spiritual enlightenment.

But “in the world” is where we need to be in order to serve and help as many people as possible.

The challenge is to change the world for the better rather than let the world change us for the worse.

So what can we do to be “in the world but not of it”?

To become ever more attuned to our Higher Selves?

To stay focused on the spiritual path?

Come and join us for our 100th episode of the show!


Join international bestselling author Richard Lawrence to discover the wisdom of The Nine Freedoms. Richard has appeared on hundreds of radio shows around the world and is the author of 11 books including Contacts With The Gods From Space and Realize Your Inner Potential, both of which he co-authored with Master of Yoga Dr. George King – his spiritual master.

    Dear Richard and Darren. It is said that the greatest act in these days is Service to others. Thank you both for your outstanding Service in producing 100 excellent quality Spiritual Freedom Shows for us all. It is a wonderful legacy that you have created for now, and into the future. I know that my life is better today for acting on those “ah ha” moments where the moment of realization came through hearing you talk about The Nine Freedoms.
    I hope the SFS continues to grow and that more and more people get drawn to listen to these wonderful Truths. Blessings to you both.

      Eric, We’ve had a fair few aha moments ourselves too. It is so good to hear that the show is helping us all to mine the outstanding spiritual depths of these teachings. Wishing you a Happy Birthday from us all at the Spiritual Freedom Show!
