Wicks offers a rich array of insights including seven practical steps, a thirty-day retreat, and a Spiritual Mindfulness Questionnaire. This creative combination of ancient wisdom and contemporary psychology is designed to help readers develop a loving, clear, and spiritually balanced outlook.

Reviews of related books by Robert J. Wicks
Bounce: Living the Resilient Life 
 (Oxford, 2009)
Bounce 
 entreats us to “Have a Life!”—and live it more fully.  Wicks helps us to develop hardiness, learn to debrief ourselves after a hard day, and create a personal self-care program we will actually follow. Insightful, practical, and often humorous,
Bounce 
 is the right tonic for the spirit we need in today’s stressful world.

Dead Man Walking 
Crossing the Desert 
 (Sorin, 2007)Only after the desert has done its work in us can an angel come to strengthen us.
Crossing the Desert 
 tells us why we need the desert in our lives and what kind of angels only the desert can bring. Tis is Robert Wicks at his best: wonderfully sane, balanced, accessible, witty, and challenging. Mysticism for those who are frightened of that term.
