Review

A fantastic spiritual narrative that is alive with hope and possibility. Sandy Nathan's journey will inspire you create your own spiritual practice. A highly recommended book for all spiritual seekers. -- USABookNews.com.

Sandy's book has got to be one of the most fun to read books about spirituality ever written. She takes the reader along on her adventures with a down to earth approach and style that keeps the reader in touch--with both reality and spirituality. Informative, entertaining, and enlightening. -- Natural Horse Magazine, Volume 8 Issue 5.

Stepping Off the Edge is beautifully written. It has many examples of Sandy's spirited events and the need for inner awareness. -- Adele Von Rust McCormick, Ph.D., Marlena Deborah McCormick, Ph.D. and Thomas McCormick, M.D. authors, Horses and the Mystical Path and Horse Sense and the Human Heart.

Sandy Nathan has not only captured the essence of the Gathering, but she has also scattered the seeds of its healing to others. Sandy, in Stepping off the Edge, sharing her flaws, her fears, her uncertainties, so that readers can connect, open up, and begin the healing process. I am both awed and humbled that the Gathering, with its tiny beginnings nearly a decade ago, now speaks to the hearts of so many hurting people through Bill Miller's words and, now, Sandy's book. Thank you, Sandy, for listening to that inner voice. Aho. -- Delilah F. O'Haynes, Ed.D, A founder of the Native American Ministries (NAM) of the Holston Conference of the United Methodist Church.

From the Author

Sometimes the universe tells you to do something--and you just do it. Your soul realizes that what's before you is so important that you must do it. That's how Stepping Off the Edge was. When I started writing in my journal at the Gathering, a Native American spiritual retreat led by Bill Miller, I had no idea my scribbling would turn into a national award winning book. But it did.

I'd like you to go with me on a journey you'll never forget--my journey through life and love, addiction and recovery. A journey that took me to my roots, and my heights--and depths.

As we make this journey together, I think you'll see how alike we are, and how what I learned can apply to your life.

I invite you to read my book, and watch out for what's coming. I've just begun this voyage of speaking to the heart. I'd love you to come along with me. We'll have a ball.

By G. B. Shepherd on December 4, 2006
Format: Paperback
Sandy Nathan leads the reader with wit and warmth into taking a look at life, in particular, their own life and just what is going on. More importantly, she helps the reader ask the important questions. Do I like my life? Do I like the way I am living? If the answer is 'yes,' be ready to sit back and enjoy an enlightening excursion to another level of living. If you unfortunately answer 'no,' be ready to learn specific ways to turn 'no' into 'yes', or, at least, 'maybe.' Ms. Nathan guides without preaching, leads without pushing, and does it all with a sense of humor as she shares her own life experiences.

I have quickly become a fan of Author Sandy Nathan, this being the 3rd book in her vast selection of books to read from and enjoy. “Stepping off the Edge: Learning and Living Spiritual Practice” is truly a remarkable memoir and self help book that is as captivating as it is inspirational. From start to finish you will embark on a spiritual journey that personally has taught me a great deal about not only myself, but also about my place in the universe.

It amazes me how one can find and reach such spiritual enlightenment in their life. Author Sandy Nathan is the perfect testament on how every lesson in life is a progressive track for you to gain a stronger deeper connection with the elements we have around us that enable us to find a deeper peace we all desperately are searching for. While this is a memoir, it also teaches us the true essence of Prayer, Meditation and Retreats. Above all it gives the reader the opportunity to create a deep spiritual wellness inside your heart and soul. This is not a “how to” book but rather a spiritual path that arms you with the keys to life, spirituality and wellbeing. All I can say is that this book is simply brilliant and spellbinding on many different levels. “Stepping Off the Edge: Learning and Living Spiritual Practice” has inspired me to continue on my on own journey in attaining the spiritual peace I need to get through this hectic, chaotic world we are living. I highly recommend this book to all and vote 5 well deserved stars!

I just finished reading Stepping Off the Edge....what a ride!!! I want to say this is part self help and part spiritual journey but it's so much more. It's real life messy with twists, turns, a beautiful rhythm, profound insights and entertaining on top of it all. I look at myself and journey with more wisdom, clarity and compassion. So glad I found this wonderful book. Read it. You'll be glad you did.

I love this book. It appeared in my life at just the right time. Every person is at a different place on the spiritual growth chart. But no matter where you are, Sandy Nathan's book can help guide you to your next phase. Stepping Off The Edge: Living and Learning Spiritual Practice contains exercises to help you grow, along with stories from the author's own journey in finding her spiritual self. The book is written in an easy to read style, yet is full of wisdom and common sense. As I read, I felt that Sandy Nathan was a real friend who cared about helping me and who was honest and forgiving. In addition to her own insights about spiritual growth and finding one's way, Ms. Nathan has included in the book a list of valuable resources for continued study.

Thank you, Sandy Nathan -- you have managed to get it across that journeying along the spiritual path is not something reserved for a select few; it is, rather, a description of the life of every human being. Stepping... mirrors my innermost thoughts and struggles, and the stirrings of my soul's awakening. The booked grabbed me right off in chapter 1, with the sidebar, "What do you really want?" - a question that gets to the foundation of all behavior and being.
I devoured your book; read most of it late into the night, and just finished the last few chapters last night. I loved it!! I was touch, inspired, expanded, and goaded into greater self commitment.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for writing this really wonderful book.
