“So long, Carrie Bradshaw—there’s a new role model for go-getting thirty-somethings. Gabrielle Bernstein is doling out inner peace and self-love for the postmodern spiritual set.”—Elle
Foreword by Marianne Williamson
Before she became a celebrated teacher and lecturer, Gabrielle Bernstein was going down a dangerous path. For years, Bernstein struggled with eating disorders, drug and alcohol abuse, and constant self-doubt and self-loathing. That all changed when she discovered A Course in Miracles, which taught her that much of what she feared in life was not frightening at all and, in many cases, not even real.
Now, Bernstein lives an empowered, healthy, and joyful life. In Spirit Junkie, Bernstein guides readers through the life-changing lessons that shaped her spiritual journey: how we become accustomed to fearful ways of thinking, how to recognize and change those thought patterns to make way for bliss, and how to maintain our happiness and share it with the world. By understanding and changing our perceptions, hang-ups will melt away, resentments will release, and a childlike faith in joy will be reignited.
Praise for Spirit Junkie
“For those ready to give up their addiction to suffering or who simply need to release the general malaise of a too-busy, too shallow way of life, Spirit Junkie is a soothing balm for the soul. Gabrielle Bernstein is a brilliant shining guide for all who seek to have more love, more light and more miracles in their life.”—Arielle Ford, author of The Soulmate Secret
Bernstein's talent for marketing herself through media coverage, speaking engagements, and her mentoring Web site is apparent in this volume. Bernstein (Add More ~ing to Your Life) puts her scars up front, describing the "tiny mad ideas," or illusions, that made her a drug- and relationship-addicted narcissist and the changes that came with gratitude, forgiveness, meditation, prayer, and surrendering to her inner guide, which she calls her "~ing." Some readers may be skeptical about Bernstein's experiences of "synchronicity," but most will appreciate her confessions of continued wrangling with the "ego tornado." Bernstein pitches her reflections and exercises toward Gen Y readers, but by emphasizing inner peace and emotional stability, she broadens the book's appeal to anyone who, like Bernstein, has decided that the only option is to "put down the practical and pick up the spiritual."

Full of Wisdom
I loved the teachings in this book so much I gave a copy to my adult daughter. My opinion as a therapist who gravitates to the intersection of spirituality and psychology: the author condenses the core teachings of Christianity and all major religions (while not using religious terms - which is useful for those turned off to religion but maybe not to God) and imbeds them in a context similar to cognitive psychology. This is the first book review I've written and I wrote it because this is a potentially life-changing book.
