Over the last 10 years, Kok Tho’s research, seminars and material address the dangers of eastern meditation and their foundational beliefs, how it is taking root in the west, in Christendom, mental health therapies, transformational health and social movements, high levels of government and in business leadership.
Kok Tho correlates his personal involvement with pantheistic spiritualism, their belief system as manifested visibly, neuroscience research of eastern meditation and the Bible to bring sharp contrast to differentiate between Biblical meditation versus false Christianized derivatives of eastern meditation.
