Persian mystics, Egyptian pharaohs, Greek philosophers, even Knights Templar made accessing paradise their life ambition while alive, so what is it really about? Why did philosophers see it as the only place to find true wisdom? Can it really be experienced while a person is living? How were ancient temples and pyramids designed to take initiates into a paradisical state? And if paradise is more than an imaginary realm, how and where can it be reached?

Welcome to a 10,000-year journey of self-improvement starting in Japan, and ending, incredibly, in America’s capital.
