Overview

The Way of Kings is a collection of ancient Sanskrit tenets drawn from the Vedas, books of sacred knowledge that are among the oldest, most comprehensive commentaries on human existence. The Vedas were spoken primarily by the sage Vyasa, who was considered to be divinely empowered. The remainder of the texts were composed by other scholars, sages, and holy people of the ancient Vedic civilization of India, around 4000 B.C.
Offering timeless wisdom, The Way of Kings illuminates the full spectrum of strategy and action once used by kings, including fulfilling potential, summoning courage, inspiring artistry, out-maneuvering opponents, and increasing wealth.

While the text has been translated from ancient histories, legends, and codes of conduct, its philosophies remain startlingly current and offer a fresh perspective for modern man's endeavors.

He has been a practitioner of Vedic Astrology or Jyotish for over 34 years and has been a featured speaker at the International Symposium on Vedic Astrology held in the United States and the British Association of Vedic Astrology Conference held in London. He has authored two books, The Way of Kings, detailing ancient leadership strategies that he translated from the original Sanskrit and Planetary Gemstones.

In 1969, Drew Lawrence set out on a personal journey. His destination — the fulfillment of his life’s purpose. Almost forty years later, he finds himself still firmly treading that same path, significantly closer to the goal and appreciating every step of the adventure. As an experienced traveler on the path, he has been given the fortunate opportunity to help thousands of other wayfarers on their quest for their own Holy Grail. Steeped in the practical mysticism of the Sanskrit Vedas, and intuitively versed in the symbolism of Jungian psychological thought and active imagination, Drew has forged powerful tools with which he has developed his own distinctive methods of insight and transformation.

With clients throughout the world, Drew is a consultant to Fortune 500 executives, crown princes, heads of state, United Nations envoys, diplomats, Ivy League professors, inventors, cutting-edge entrepreneurs, and entertainment celebrities. Among them, academy award winning director, Oliver Stone, golden globe winning actress, Jennifer Garner, Marsha Mason, Cindy Crawford, Kate Beckinsale, Linda Gray, Joanna Gleason, Chris Sarandon, Robin Wright, Billy Zane, Chris de Burgh, and Miss World Rosanna Davison, to name a few.

Drew has pioneered a dynamic method of meditation and personal discovery entitled Guided Healing Meditation which enables people to "heal their past and envision their future." He has been featured in national magazine articles, as well as radio and television interviews in several countries. His consultations and workshops have brought empowerment and transformation into the lives of thousands.
