Editorial Reviews


"....Therapists are stuck in the worldview that only what science can prove is real and anything else should be medicated away; New Age gurus espouse the postmodern view that everything is subjective; and patients discount their own emergent Judeo-Christian imagery due to bad early experiences with organized religion. All these preconceptions get in the way of addressing a Western spiritual crisis."
"...Miller's entreaty... to allow for the authenticity of mystical experience in the therapeutic process opens up a powerful route toward healing...." Publisher's Weekly

"....A description of the three stages of the Western Spiritual Path and how these might lead to a more spiritually-fulfilling life contributes to a discussion designed for modern seekers of all faiths who want to get a handle on their lives and purpose." --- Goodreads

"...It analyzes how millions of people from Judeo-Christian backgrounds experience spiritual emptiness and how these seekers often eschew the spiritual intuitions and mystical visions that come to them through prayer, dreams and daily living; and it considers why the religious, psychological and social systems of modern society and even the New Age movement have failed to address these problems." -- The Midwest Book Review

"..Miller says the Western belief smorgasbord known as "spiritual but not religious"--a little Shamanism here, a little Buddhism there, none of it approached from a place of deep, lifelong commitment --doesn't provide the strong sustenance one needs to face either a planet in turmoil or the life crises that come to all of us. Instead, she urges people in the Western world to reclaim their own spiritual roots through the mysticism that lies at the heart of both Christianity and Judaism, and not to see ecstatic experiences as psychotic episodes but as transcendent revelations.." --Energy Times

"...This is the daring counter-cultural revelation that many of our 'helpers' neglect and even disdain the Judeo-Christian mystical experiences of those who come to them..I found myself wanting to send a copy of this book to every postmodern person I know with a note saying - Hey, how about this!"  -- Pastor Paul R. Smith, Integral Christianity: The Spirit's Call to Evolve
