Review

GET READY TO COVER A LOT OF GROUND! Ross Bishop has been there and back again. He's taken the hits, wound up in the ditches, and seen the high side, all for a price: to find his way along the path. In his case a path that led him to discover that he is a natural healer, a shaman. To our good fortune he is also one of those compassionate beings that realizes that spreading the word of what he learned helps us all and the planet we so precariously live on. Ross has a knack for explaining things, always a helpful attribute. Our Universe is complex, a gazillion learning experiences happening simultaneously, all guiding us along our path. We sometimes need help along this path and Journey To Enlightenment can fill this need. A wealth of information is offered to us in this book. Some of it the kind one must go over several times to ingest. I noticed right from the start that this is going to become an importance reference book in a lot of people s lives. To his benefit, Ross has endowed this book with an easy to follow format: principles we can gather and begin to assimilate and an index to help us find our way back to particularly meaningful bits. I am always delighted when authors pull quotes from knowledgeable sources and then expound on them or use them to guide us to an important junction. Ross calls on the likes of Ghandi, Rumi, Ramana Maharshi, Juan Ramon Jimenez, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, and Black Elk to name just a few. He uses stories where they do a particularly good job of illustrating his point. The best of these being Steve Job s infamous, Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish commencement address at Stanford. So, where can this book take it's readers? Pretty much anywhere you want to go, but most importantly to find what Bishop calls the God Space. The work involved is not easy, and it will take time. But as you work thru his suggestions and exercises dealing with your inner child, entities that may have attached themselves to you or past lives that need to be visited you will little by little, or in astonishing leaps find your way. Remember, as Principle No. One states LOVE EVERYTHING. Just imagine how far that could take you towards your own personal God Space. --Donna Coomer, Between The Lines Reviews

About the Author

There are two kinds of Shaman. Some people have a gift and study for years to develop that gift into a healing art. Ross Bishop is what is called a natural Shaman, someone who seems to have been born blessed with a gift for healing. He is also blessed with an ability to take complex matters and explain them clearly so that they can be easily understood. Ross has brought the core of the ancient traditions of Shamanism into an approachable form and outlines practices that can be easily used and understood by Western people. In a former life, Ross was president of an advertising agency and a communications executive in Minneapolis. Later with a colleague he founded Creative Power Workshops and traveled the country teaching creative thinking to advertising writers and art directors. Seeing the limitations fear placed on people's creative passion led Ross to undertake a personal spiritual journey in search of answers. That journey covered many miles, years and brought him to some important teachers. Finding answers, Ross also found his natural Shamanic gift for healing. He returned to this country and conducted vision quests for spiritual pilgrims throughout the Southwestern United States. He has written three books: Healing the Shadow, Truth and Journey to Enlightenment. Today he concentrates his energies on writing and on an active teaching and counseling practice in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Format: Paperback
This 248 page journey into self love was a great treat to review. The format was easy to follow and I fell totally in love with the author's compassionate down to earth style. It was so comfortable it was like sitting with my best friend and mentor discussing the road map to enlightenment over a cup of tea. I was energized and comforted all at the same time.

The book touched on many areas that I have found sticking points through out my life and then proceeded through personal stories and great insights to give me a way out of my pain and the blocks that have held me back for so long. There was a meditation that really helped me get more in touch with my spiritual self and I was amazed how simple it was to accomplish. I would recommend this awesome teacher to anyone serious about reaching to the light in a more focused and supported way. Thanks Ross, your blessed contributions have helped many.

We are all on this journey, even though many of us don't (yet) know it. Ross Bishop opens the way to understanding where our beliefs were born, how they manifest and where we can choose to take them. This book lovingly, yet firmly, takes the reader by the hand into the self, wherein the power lies. Allow yourself the freedom to embark on this journey, as you will be amazed at what you discover. My trip has uncovered some remarkable truths.

Format: Paperback
Shaman Ross Bishop reminds us that we are here (in this physical world) for a reason, and that reason is to further develop our spiritual awareness and growth. Along our path, journeys, we all need/have teachers who enhance our spirituality...Bishop is such a teacher and Journey to Enlightenment is the tool. Through this book, you'll learn to face and release the deeper issues that are holding you back, allowing you to free yourself and move forward on your path. If you're willing to do the work and face the issues, the benefits from doing so will be evident. As with all of Bishop's books, he touches (and teaches) his readers through easy to relate to metaphors, real life examples, and most of all - compassion. I'm already looking forward to his next book.

Journey to Enlightenment by Ross Bishop is a book that will make you take a look at yourself and just where you are in the world today. It compels you to examine yourself with a positive view and places you in a position of encouragement to be all you can be.
Ross Bishop is a Shaman and writes from his experience of self motivation to where he is today and his role as a healer.

Format: Paperback
According to Shaman Ross Bishop, "Enlightenment may not be as unreachable as you think." In his important book, Journey to Enlightenment, Bishop provides readers with a new way to view their life experiences as well as recommendations to reconnect with "God space." Readers are given concrete techniques for addressing "obstacles" on the path to enlightenment. Bishop encourages readers to live a life of compassion rather than fear and encourages readers to make their spiritual growth the most important thing in their lives. Bishop presents 13 core principles as a guide to finding one's way to the Divine. Among these principles are: Love everything or it will become a lesson. Bishop also provides specific exercise to work and heal the inner child as well as information about healing ritual with the Shamanic Journey Process. The book is a fantastic resource readers are sure to refer to as they advance on their pathway to enlightenment.
