Therapy trumps theology in this self-help guide to personal spiritual peace. Counselors inspired by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of Transcendental Meditation, Bloomfield and Goldberg (coauthors of Making Peace with Your Past) advocate a psychologically sensitive and highly syncretistic personal faith for the religious and nonreligious alike. "We are all pieces of God yearning for the peace of God," they announce, even including atheists in their sweeping statement. With uplifting anecdotes, personal vignettes, and inspiring quotations from an eclectic mix of religious sources (cited with little regard for their original context), the authors encourage spiritual seekers to pursue enlightenment. The chapters offer pathways through doubt, suffering, guilt, and shame toward awakening to consciousness of God and growing beyond self-centered spirituality. The text argues that religions that stress the distinction between God and world are really seeking union with the divine, although they tend to create soul-damaging religious institutions. Designed for do-it-yourselfers, the book sacrifices understanding the faiths of others on the altar of self-awareness. Steve Young, McHenry Cty. Coll., Crystal Lake, IL
