Jason's interest in international cultures has led him to extensively study world religions, philosophies, and esoteric traditions, which eventually led him to the Masonic Fraternity. Jason is a true lover of knowledge who enjoys studying various philosophies, religions, and esoteric studies in order to discover the deeper meaning and Light that is present within the various traditions, as well as within all men.

Jason became interested in the study of comparative religion during his undergraduate studies, after undergoing a truly transformational experience during an introductory comparative religion course. After his initial transformational experience, Jason undertook a personal journey to learn more about the various religions of the world in order to gain a better understanding of the ties that unite humanity, as well as his own true nature, and ultimately God. What began as personal notes from his studies and journeys became the genesis of this book.
Rather than the normal dry recitation of facts that highlight the differences among the world religions, in The Path, Jason explores the seven major religions of the world in order to highlight the ties that should unite, rather divide, humanity. Jason also shows how the teachings and insights from the various world religions can be applied to anyone’s journey of personal and spiritual development, regardless of one’s particular path or spiritual background.
