About Robert W. Hart: At just twelve years old when he had what the Buddhists would call "a moment of perfect vision"―a spontaneous transcendent moment that foreshadowed a lifelong journey to try and understand his experiences. The journey took him into religious and mystical traditions, from which he gleaned useful information toward completing the journey. Along the way, a new map emerged―one that could be used to envision the entire path from unenlightened to enlightened. This map became the Medicine Wheel. After years of exploration, we now have the knowledge of how the process works from a physiologic standpoint, and how it can help us understand all that's possible in terms of the human experience.
