"In this outstanding book, Barry Andrews explores the concrete, interrelated spiritual practices that were the vital source from which everything else about Transcendentalism―texts, ideas, and social action―flowed. These practices are eminently available to spiritual seekers today, both those who are connected to conventional forms of religiosity and those who are allergic to 'religion.'"―Dan McKanan, author of Prophetic Encounters: Religion and the American Radical Tradition
"Seeing oneself clearly is at the heart of living consciously, and Transcendentalism and the Cultivation of the Soul by Barry M. Andrews (Univ. of Massachusetts, Oct.) focuses on the consciousness-enhancing practices developed by the American Transcendentalists, including simple living, journaling, contemplation, walking in nature, reading, and conversation."―Publishers Weekly
"Drawing from classic works, as well as from modern and post-modern authors, Andrews makes a strong case that the Transcendentalist call to a meaningful life continues to be of consequence today . . . this book stands as both a history and a practical guide toward spiritual growth."―Journal of Unitarian Universalist History
"As informed and informative as it is thoughtful and thought-provoking, Transcendentalism and the Cultivation of the Soul is an extraordinarily well researched, written, organized and presented study, making it an especially and unreservedly recommended addition to both community and academic library collections."―Midwest Book Review
