James Hilgendorf is a filmmaker, poet, speaker, and the author of ten non-fiction books that are opening up the way to a new vision of ourselves, a new dream of America, and a new religion for the world.

Of his book, “Life & Death: A Buddhist Perspective”, for instance, a few reviewers have written:

"If I were to teach a basic college-level course in religion, philosophy, or metaphysics – call it Spirituality 101 – this book would be required reading.  In fact, it would be the first week's assignment.  Having read all or parts of nearly a thousand books dealing with spiritual matters, I cannot recall another that so simply and effectively blends the fundamentals of religion and science." – Michael E. Tymn, Journal of Religion and Psychical Research.

"A must-read!  I am serious when I say that reading James Hilgendorf's 'Life & Death: A Buddhist Perspective' was a life-changing experience.  It has changed the way I will live the rest of my life." – Lisbeth Gant-Britton, author of "African American History” and UCLA adjunct professor in African-American Studies.

He has been practicing Buddhism for forty-three years with the Soka Gakkai International, the largest Buddhist lay organization in the world now, with 12,000,000 members in 192 countries and territories around the globe.  In addition to his work in filmmaking and writing, he brings to his talks a broad array of life experiences.

Some of the topics of his talks include the following:

Happiness: Relative and Absolute
Empowering Youth
The Real Dream of America
Life & Death: A Buddhist Perspective
The Empowerment of Women
Marriage, Love & Karma
You & The Universe Are One
