Mildon, a self-described spiritual explorer, puts her extensive search experiences to work in her compendium of new age spiritual growth techniques. Divided into sections addressing body, mind, and spirit, Mildon shares her personal efforts to employ such new age staples as crystals, aromatherapy, decoding dreams, numerology, and past life regression. Alongside in-depth descriptions of each practice, Mildon includes personal commentary on its usefulness, as well as a "woowoo" factor a way she describes how far along the New Age spectrum the practice seems to be. Text boxes within sections urge the reader to "explore this" by suggesting specific resources to find and practices to try. The introduction is a useful guide to discovering what kind of soul searcher the reader might be, or might wish to become. Mildon's tone is irreverent and flippant and may not suit all readers. However, those wanting a dose of humor alongside their path will find in Mildon a kindred spirit and a companion for the search.
Great book for beginners!
This is an incredible book I found myself highlighting and marking off pages when I didn't even plan to. The author gives a wide variety of spiritual outlets to use for healing, energy, and life changes (among many other things). I'm very happy I started with this book because it laid everything out for me and described it in a way a novice could understand. Once I was finished reading it I had discovered which spiritual outlets I wanted to explore and which ones I was willing to try later. Not only that but I understood the reasoning behind explore different outlets instead of going in blind. I'm very happy with this read and I will definitely recommend it as well as use it frequently.
