Format: Paperback
Joe Felser's book is a threshold work of charm and originality, in which he takes us on a journey through the process of rediscovering the deep "natural knowing" that exists within himself, and each one of us, however abrogated by our "decrepit, decaying cultural ideologies," as he puts it so well. Throughout, not only is Felser's writing a joy in itself, he maintains a delicate balance between intuitive leaps and earthy good sense, most unusual in this (or any) field. I especially like his description of a heightened sense experience in which all things seemed alive in the moment --even the phone poles. His self-effacing humor guides the reader unerringly, where a lesser writer would have lectured or spun an agenda. Instead, Felser asks the right questions, never settles for standard answers, and skewers the nonsense on all sides.

Nonetheless, this book is written with an underlying tone of urgency. In refusing to concede his "natural knowing" to any official discipline or belief mode, Felser is challenging the rest of us to do the same, for in his opinion, "...nourishing our psychic sensitivity ... is not an option. It is a necessity if we wish to survive as a species on this planet." I could not agree more. This book is not only a stunning defense of our native individual consciousness, it is a work that represents the best of our collective understanding about how reality works, and how we'd best get cracking at attending to it. Five big, gold stars.

Format: Paperback
The Way Back To Paradise is a solid footprint in the sands of time, a clear impression of the human desire for greater individual meaning, balance, presence, being, in the vast environment of existence. Professor Joseph M. Felser (Joe Felser) has "pulled it off," brought forth a clear view of the healing multidimensional capability of every human being with eloquent clarity, bringing together rich layers of perception, grounding it in the truth of his own existence and experiences. Intelligent, candid, perceptive, it is an honest , sensitive, well documented chronicle of the human search for inner freedom. Dr. Felser's epilogue is an eloquent tract, "the way back to paradise" unflinchingly laid out. "Powerful are the sensitive, they are free!"

Format: Paperback
This book came to me, I didn't seek it out and as I was reading it I asked myself several times in amazement, why I even picked it up (literally). However, I am so glad and blessed I did. This book has been a spirituality life saver for me. It's given me permission to follow my own instincts, which has been very freeing. I was in the midst of a spiritual transition as I read this and it was what I needed. It spoke to right where I was with my life's spiritual path. All I can say is The Universe placed this book in my hands and upon reading it I couldn't put it down. It's a keeper, I'll read it again and again for that spiritual shot in the arm and for the reassurance and permission to be on the path I'm on. Thanks Dr. Felser!!!

Format: Paperback
I highly recommend this book. The author has generously shared himself in a very personal and human way that endears him to the reader. His experiences serve to jog memories of our own experiences - ones that we may have dismissed because they didn't fit the accepted, limited patterns in our society. The book reminds us that we are all remarkable magical creatures living in a very personal universe.

The book was outstanding and I found it evoked in me many of my own forgotten experiences as I was reading it. Definitely 5 stars.
