Review

"Andersons nested meditations are superb examples of everyday spirituality." Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Health magazine -- Spirituality and Health magazine, June, 2003

From the Publisher

SELECTED ONE OF BEST SPIRITUAL BOOKS OF 2003 BY SPIRITUALITY AND HEALTH MAGAZINE

In choosing Divinity in Disguise as one of the best spiritual books of 2003, Spirituality and Health magazine wrote that Anderson ". . . has come up with a fresh way to explore the surprising dimensions of everyday spirituality where even the most commonplace experiences are shot through with grace and meaning . . . Anderson keeps opening doors for our appreciation of the abundant marvels in our daily lives . . . Anderson's nested meditations are superb examples of everyday spirituality."

This book offers a totally new experience to readers that is thought-provoking, playful, soulful, and centering. The "nested meditation" is an entirely new form of writing that offers a unique method for exploring the richness of ordinary experience.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By John Florian on November 19, 2003
I was deeply inspired by Kevin Anderson's book. I found his nested meditations to be both creative and profound. While I had the tendency at the beginning to rush through the meditations and look for the "punchline" at the end, I gradually learned that the process of slowly going through the meditations and grasping the meaning of each new section was worth the effort.
The biggest surprise for me was that I thought that the accompanying reflections would be somewhat superficial compared to the profundity of the nested meditations. I was delighted to discover that these reflections were every bit as inspirational and packed with meaning as the meditations themselves.
Reading Kevin's book is like taking a walk with a spiritual mentor down the path of life. His vulnerablity, and williness to explore both the dark and light sides of life, makes the book that much more engaging.
I encourage anyone who is interested in being invited to delve deeply into the mysteries and majic of life to read Kevin's book. It is sheer delight and a real gift to the world.

The Holy is everywhere and Kevin Anderson's nested meditations are a perfect way to see more clearly. You will see the ordinary is not so ordinary when you read his meditations and accompanying short essays. His reflections on ordinary moments in his life have sparked my own reflections. The nested meditation form that he has created is really a helpful way of sitting with our daily experience to discover the Divine in it.
I have written my own nested meditations to help process my life situations, given the book to friends, used it with clients. It works ar all levels to help us see the Divine in the disguise of the ordinary. Don't miss this beautiful book of discovery!

Anderson's nested meditations are delightful. I have been encouraged to try writing my own, using his suggestions. When I have had significant personal experiences that I want to capture with words, nested meditations cause me to reflect both backward and forward. Writing such a meditation requires that an event is captured in an economy of words.

I truly appreciate the short pieces Anderson writes that tell what led up to his own nested meditatiions. While Anderson doesn't suggest doing so for the meditations the reader may write, it seems like a sound practice.
