An itinerant spiritual counselor and advisor, Ram Dass is a circuit rider of the soul. He is the founder of the Hanuman Foundation, dedicated to promoting spiritual awareness and well-being among people who live in Western cultures, and co-founder of the Seva Foundation, an international service organization that works on public health and social justice issues. His own very public spiritual journey paved the way for others to explore the territories of psychedelics, Eastern philosophy, service, and work with the dying.
