From the Publisher

Based on teachings known as the Ageless Wisdom, this meditation illuminates the eternal quest for spiritual truth in the context of today’s time of crisis and paradox. Through easily accessible language and words of recognized poets, sages, and philosophers, this handbook makes clear the nature of the soul, the stages of spiritual growth, and where humanity stands along the evolutionary arc. This survey elucidates the challenges of the path that bring about transformation and points to a collective willingness to face these challenges as the means of crafting a new global civilization. The shift in human consciousness from a separatist worldview based in materialism to a humanitarian-spiritual orientation that sees the individual as part of a greater life and places value on the well-being of the whole is also examined.

They start to internalize that not as news but as the norm. An effect I see on people in conversations that came up around the book is, there are actually so many beautiful, generative things happening in the world. How did America get to this place of such divi

Why Doctors Should Start Taking Your Past Spiritual History

A little over a decade ago, Farr Curlin, a physician and professor of medical humanities at Duke Divinity School, became curious about the spiritual lives of his colleagues. He already knew that patients’ religious beliefs and communities matter: Both influence medical decisions and change the meaning of illness. But the influence of physicians’ religiosity on their work was relatively unknown. So he and his colleagues conducted a national survey of physicians’ religious characteristics. He found that, compared to a sample of the general U.S. population, physicians were twice as likely to cop

Is Neuroscience Rediscovering The Soul?

The idea that neuroscience is rediscovering the soul is, to most scientists and philosophers, nothing short of outrageous. Of course it is not. But the widespread, adverse, knee-jerk attitude presupposes the old-fashioned definition of the soul — the ethereal, immaterial entity that somehow encapsulates your essence. Surely, this kind of supernatural mumbo-jumbo has no place in modern science. And I agree. The Cartesian separation of body and soul, the res extensa (matter stuff) vs. res cogitans (mind stuff) has long been discarded as untenable in a strictly materialistic description of natura
