Fortunately, author Sharon Janis put a lot of research into this informative discussion on spiritual growth. As a result, she maintains a solid voice that transcends the cluttered and sometimes superficial format. Spiritual practices, such as yoga and mediation, are briefly explained along with how to cultivate spiritual values and rise above suffering. At times she offers the kindly voice of experience: "When I'm able to give something to another person, I know it is God giving through me. Then, rather than expecting anything in return I am grateful for having been of service." At other times she is the voice of a well-educated teacher: "Ex means 'out of,' while status is a 'fixed condition.' This means that, in a way, the more fixed conditions you have to move out of, the more ecstatic you can become. Therefore every trouble in your life is really a beautiful gift to be unwrapped." --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This book is a great introduction to spiritual concepts which has helped me begin a spiritual journey.
I often reference the book over and over, for information on certain specific subjects, which is very easy to do in the "Dummies" format.
What I learned from this book helped me to brainstorm and come up with many creative ideas for the course.
I am enjoying reading this book from cover to cover even though at times, I like to look up specific chapters of interest. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Kenneth N. Engleson

I really have enjoyed this book. Was not only drawn to this book due to the "for Dummies" series but also to the topic.Published on December 11, 2012 by Patricia A. Erwin
