About Anne and Amir:
After an intensive 25-year search and in the midst of a spiritual and personal crisis after leaving her last teacher, Anne finally realized what had always been present as her true nature: the unchanging, boundless, timeless, ever-fulfilled Self.
In recent years she has begun to speak and write publicly about this profound shift of identity and understanding, not as a teacher, but as a friend and advisor. Anne created The End of Seeking website as a free resource to help simplify and demystify the spiritual search for others and to give seekers the tools and knowledge they may need to independently navigate the often confusing and at times hazardous contemporary spiritual marketplace.
Amir Freimann spent 25 years in a Zen monastery in Japan and a small spiritual community in the US. He is the author of Spiritual Transmission: Paradoxes and Dilemmas on the Spiritual Path based on interviews with a hundred spiritual teachers and students.
Amir is currently a doctoral student at the University of Haifa, writing Living Transcendence: A Phenomenological Study of Spiritual Exemplars based on interviews he did with a few dozen spiritual teachers/masters of different traditions around the globe. His postdoctoral research will focus on the experience and cultivation of love in the lives of spiritual masters, and he intends to co-create a documentary film on this subject.
