Philosopher/Theologian Edward F. Sylvia makes connections between the everyday and the extraordinary with a unique spiritual perspective. Whether he’s talking about “Inner Gardening,” “Neuroscience and Proper Fishing Technique,” or reading his original “Stories for Children and the Wise,” he challenges and inspires with startling concepts and sometimes a touch of humor.
Ed attended the School of Visual Arts in New York and went on to a career writing for some of the world’s largest advertising agencies in New York, St. Louis and Chicago. He received his Master of Theological Studies at the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, CA and a Certificate of Swedenborgian Studies from the Swedenborgian House of Studies. He is a member of the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences (C.T.N.S.) and the Swedenborg Scientific Association (S.S.A.). He lives with his wife Susan in a solar house on a ten acre “homestead” just outside St. Louis, in southern Illinois. Edward is continually working on both his inner and outer gardens and has many other projects in the works, including books, articles, documentaries and screenplays.
Author of Sermon From the Compost Pile: Seven Steps Toward Creating An Inner Garden, and the award-winning Proving God, which fulfills a continuing vision that God’s fingerprints of Love can be found everywhere in the manifest universe.
