"A lighthearted, upbeat take on questions that have churned within human minds for millennia." (Spirituality & Health Book Review)
"A must-read for anyone seeking to find or deepen their spiritual path." (Francesco Mastalia, author of Yoga: The Secret of Life)
Mining the world's philosophical, scientific, and wisdom traditions, Spiritual Rebel encourages listeners to explore their unique spiritual style and life purpose. Narrators Sarah Bowen and Nicole Losie gently, and often irreverently, guide listeners through three weeks of unconventional spiritual practices to try out, including forest bathing, meditation with animals, visio divina, kirtan, divine reading, and visiting sacred locations, just to name a few.
Throughout the book, Bowen divulges juicy tidbits from her own spiritually rebellious journey. A preacher's kid originally inspired by the Force of Star Wars, she confesses her challenges with her birth religion, descent into addiction, and recovery into a life where everything can be sacred.
Drawing on the interspiritual wisdom of Wayne Teasdale, Dr. Andrew Newberg, Neil deGrasse Tyson, John Muir, Dr. Qing Li, Sarah Wilson, Deepak Chopra, Ram Dass, Thich Nhat Hanh, Madeleine L'Engle, Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, Phyllis Curott, and many many others, Spiritual Rebel is for anyone who desires meaningful experiences without having to commit exclusively to one path or fear they might be "doing it wrong."
"Informed and informative, thoughtful and thought-provoking, exceptionally insightful and ultimate inspiring.” (Midwest Book Review)
