Deep Spirits is dedicated to the collecting and preserving of the universal wisdom of our world. This wisdom can be contained in philosophy, in mysticism, in religious and new age texts, in ancient stories and fairy tales. We are not selective in regards to the sources, only their meaning and message matter.
Anything that we, as a group, consider to be a source of wisdom or otherwise important for humankind, we will gather and present to you here.
Imagine 'Deep Spirits' as a large mystical library full of treasures.. ancient relics and new discoveries, both can be equally exciting.
One of the greatest minds of all time, Leo Tolstoy, said:
"The sole meaning of life is to serve humanity."
The sole meaning of Deep Spirits is to serve humanity, by gathering & sharing
the best of humanity, all of its collected beauty and wisdom.
We hope you enjoy the journey..
Free thinkers, mind explorers, spiritual people (by whatever definition of the word 'spirituality'), teachers, students, avid readers, truth seekers

The Idea behind 'Deep Spirits'
We are gatherers of ancient wisdom. Collectors of the unified knowledge and ideas. Antiquarians of pansophy.
The larger picture
We as individuals are not, nor ever will be truly omniscient, but 'Deep Spirits' as an institution can. As such it can be the source of inspiration for every scholar, every truth seeker and every spiritual adventurer out there.
It is the place to freely browse through the wisdom of all ages. Explore the human mind via its creations throughout the centuries and millenias, including today's knowledge, ideas and discoveries.
The collective unconscious holds the key to all life's mysteries. Its exploration is an adventure and a mystery in itself.
Picture the 'Tomb Raider' adventure game, short of the rock climbing and other action sequences.
We think of 'Deep Spirits' as a cross-cultural atheneum & a playground combined.
