Fans of Gretchen Rubin's wisdom and fortitude in forging ahead in the worlds of happiness and habits, we were thrilled when this book came out in March. She will be interviewed on #SuperSoulSunday on November 8th and will be live tweeting the event @GretchenRubin.
We talk about spiritual practice, the habits that make for a strong spiritual practice, taking the time for exercising the mind, body, and spirit, and Gretchen shows us how to forge patterns that make for strong habits. She also shows what can get in the way of strong habits, what can thwart the best of intentions, and 4 types of people. The type of person you are can play into patterns that will be helpful to you in your spiritual practice. You can enjoy the podcast here: https://gretchenrubin.com/podcast/
"Describing her ensuing near-death experience as a realm of clarity and expansiveness, "a state of being," Moorjani made the choice to return, and her rapid and remarkable recovery defies all medical understanding. Her psycho-spiritual healing, which continues to this day, was self-realization: of her own magnificence, of oneness with universal energy and with a universe comprising. This candid memoir is a cathartic testimony to the magnificence and healing capacity of every human being. (Mar. 1)- Publishers Weekly
Our Spiritual Book Club readers often ask questions of both living and dying, and what comes next. One of our readers, in particular, wanted to read this book, due to Wayne Dyer's praise of it, and also for further insights, so this has become our February 2015 featured book.
If you don't know the story of Nag Hammadi, it's a fascinating tale.
"In December 1945, at the base of cliffs that run along the Nile River near the modern-day town of Nag Hammadi, an Egyptian farmer discovered, in a sealed jar, thirteen ancient Coptic codices containing more than fifty separate tracts. This discovery represented arguably the most significant manuscript discovery of the twentieth century for the study of the New Testament and Christian origins. Of all the texts in this Nag Hammadi Library, none has been more celebrated than the Gospel of Thomas - a Gospel that has played a crucial role in the newly emerging view of early Christianity as a very diverse phenomenon and in the recent revival of historical Jesus studies. Now, after more than fifty years of study, the best text and the best translation of Thomas are presented here in user-friendly form by the Berlin Working Group for Coptic Gnostic Writings, with Stephen J. Patterson and James M. Robinson"
