Swimming with the Whale by Daniel Joseph, systematically introduces the reader to an ever increasing engagement with the research of truth. It is the calling of some but really it the necessity for all. To be successful in the material world or the spiritual world we must become more aware and more conscious, which requires research in the form of observation and study. The first benefit of researching the truth is it frees us from ignorance, fear and illusion that are at the root of our problems both in the material world and in the spiritual world. Simultaneously the research of truth brings us knowledge and wisdom. These are two different things. Knowledge is not wisdom but knowledge leads to wisdom. The System for the Research of Truth presented in the Swimming with the Whale Book will give you something far greater than regular knowledge which can be forgotten, it will give you experienced knowledge, which is something that you own, something that is a part of you and thus cannot be forgotten or lost.
Of course the most important knowledge a Researcher of Truth can come to is who and what they are. Again this requires researching the truth in order to distinguish the difference between our constantly changing outer self (our personality) from our changeless Inner Self (the Soul). And this is the aim of the System for the Research of Truth as established by Dr. Stylianos Atteshlis who is more popularly known as Daskalos the Mystic of Strovolos. The. Swimming with the Whale book first introduces Daskalos as a young seven year old master and then reveals the 2000 year old lineage of the Researchers of Truth in this introductory workbook, Swimming with the Whale. This workbook guides your initial approach to these safe, effective and self-evident teachings and practices.
Daniel began his training with Daskalos in 1989 on Cyprus and continues this work in North & South America

You have had a tremendous impact on my life as I have learned so much reading your beautiful Swimming with the Whale book and listening to your wonderful Virtual Circle Lessons on the Radio The Swimming with the Whale book and the teachings of Daskalos take the reader to higher dimensions of enlightenment and faith. Excellent reading - Blessed to have found this book. Thank you for the Swimming with the Whale book it has been an answer to my prayers for truth and understanding. Your work is doing a great good for a great many people. God Bless. I'm currently finishing reading your book "Swimming with the Whale" eBook, and I'm amazed with Daskalos teachings and legacy. They are simple, practical, they make sense, and they produce results. And your book offers an excellent introduction for the beginner. I just ordered a copy of Swimming with the Whale after finding your book on the Web. From just a couple of minutes with it, I was stunned and delighted by its clarity. Bravo, congratulations, and thank you! Seldom in the History of mankind do the Teachings of a True Master become accurately/readily/and lovingly conveyed forward to those who are ready to receive and grow into their Truth. Daniel's Swimming with the Whale book is one of the very few to do that. Daskalos' primary teachings are available for those interested but Daniel, using those teachings and his own experiences and wisdom, adds that much need "spark" which ignites that flame. I have found the material to be really profound and every evening I work with the introspection exercise and have found it to be of enormous help to me. I really love the way that Swimming with the Whale is laid out, it makes quite complex subjects much easier to understand. Swimming with the Whale is a great in-depth journey into the mystical life and teachings of Daskalos. I have started to read your new book "Swimming with the Whale" I like it very much and just wanted to say thank you for your hard work in putting the Teachings in a way that I can understand and apply them! Thank you so much for the teachings & practices in the swimming with the whale book. Now I have found safe meditations. I had been practicing certain meditation that resulted in hemorrhaging in my lungs. But more importantly for me, is that I now live in a new way, more happier, calmer, satisfying and confident and better about the future. I am also I starting to understand many things that I could not possibly understand before. This is a masterful book written by whom I conclude, after studying and practicing some of the material, must likewise be a masterful author.As you might expect there are anecdotes about his first-hand experiences with Daskalos, and I personally appreciate they are short and used sparingly. (It tells me that Joseph hasn't written this to satisfy his own egoism.) I highly recommend the book to anybody who considers themselves a "researcher of truth." In 25 well-written chapters, D. Joseph gives a complete survey of the basic teachings of Daskalos combined with practical exercises for the novice. Daskalos has "re-issued" the genuine esoteric Christianity of St. Paul and the best of the Early Church Fathers. Swimming with the Whale gives a "user friendly" version of very deep teaching about how the subtle world really works and how one can engage the work of true spiritual self-cultivation. I recommend this book to any Christian who realizes there is much more to the New Testament teaching than he has been able to find in "denominational Christianity". Swimming with the Whale is not marred by New Age silliness. It is a very difficult writing task - well done.
