Everyone has religious experiences; most people just don't know how to identify them, says author William Bloom. Carolyn Myss calls this well-known British Body-Mind-Spirit teacher a "genius" who finally "separates spiritual reality from New Age nonsense." His Power of Modern Spirituality uniquely straddles mainstream and alternative forms of belief. In commonsense, everyday language, Bloom speaks directly to the legions of people who seek to replace a single-faith tradition with a more generalized spirituality. He identifies the core similarities in all spiritual traditions and explains how everyone-regardless of background, beliefs, or personality type-can immediately put them into practice. He shows how to develop the key aspects of connection, reflection, and service in the context of today's challenges in order to gain greater meaning in our lives. He also explains the phenomenon of spiritual voices in a psychological context, and he explains how modern spirituality's ethical core is stronger even than that of traditional faiths because it includes green values and insights from developmental psychology. Written in a lively and inspiring style and drawn from Bloom's popular workshops, The Power of Modern Spirituality helps us explore ourselves more deeply. It is an invaluable tool for increasing a sense of integrity, inner strength, and personal joy. It will also help us connect more strongly with family members, friends, and colleagues and forge a sense of being in the driver's seat of our lives. Today's society makes ever-increasing demands on us. But in the practice of modern spirituality, we can find heartening new solutions that give us the energy, motivation, and inspiration to develop ourselves and transform our world.

Freud and Augustine in Dialogue

"It is arguably the case," writes William Parsons, "that no two figures have had more influence on the course of Western introspective thought than Freud and Augustine." Yet it is commonly assumed that Freud and Augustine would have nothing to say to each other with regard to spirituality or mysticism, given the former's alleged antipathy to religion and the latter's not usually being considered a mystic. Adopting an interdisciplinary, dialogical, and transformational framework for interpreting Augustine's spiritual journey in his Confessions, Parsons places a "mystical theology" at the heart of Augustine's narrative and argues that his mysticism has been misunderstood partly because of the limited nature of the psychological models applied to it. At the same time, he expands Freud's therapeutic legacy to incorporate the contemporary findings of physiology and neuroscience that have been influenced in part by modern spirituality. Parsons develops a new psychological hermeneutic to account for Augustine's mysticism that will capture the imagination of contemporary readers who are both psychologically informed and interested in spirituality. The author intends this interpretive model not only to engage modern introspective concerns about developmental conflict and the power of the unconscious but also to reach a more nuanced level of insight into the origins and the nature of the self.

The Power of Ritual

Casper ter Kuile, a Harvard Divinity School fellow and cohost of the popular Harry Potter and the Sacred Text podcast, explores how we can nourish our souls by transforming common, everyday practices—yoga, reading, walking the dog—into sacred rituals that can heal our crisis of social isolation and struggle to find purpose—a message we need more than ever for our spiritual and emotional well-being in the age of COVID-19. “After half a decade of research and hundreds of conversations with people around the country, I am convinced we are in the midst of a paradigm shift. That what used to hold us in community no longer works, and that the spiritual offerings of yesteryear no longer help us thrive.”–Casper ter Kuile What do Soul Cycle, gratitude journals, and tech breaks have in common? For ter Kuile they offer rituals that create the foundation for our modern spiritual lives. We are in crisis today. Our modern technological society has left too many of us—no matter our ages—feeling isolated and bereft of purpose. Previous frameworks for building community and finding meaning no longer support us. Yet ter Kuile reveals a hopeful new message: we might not be religious, but that doesn’t mean we are any less spiritual. Instead, we are in the midst of a paradigm shift in which we seek belonging and meaning in secular practices. Today, we find connection in: CrossFit and SoulCycle, which offer a sense of belonging rooted in accountability and support much like church groups Harry Potter and other beloved books that offer universal lessons Gratitude journals, which have replaced traditional prayer Tech breaks, which provide mindful moments of calm In The Power of Ritual, ter Kuile invites us to deepen these ordinary practices as intentional rituals that nurture connection and wellbeing. With wisdom and endearing wit, ter Kuile’s call for ritual is ultimately a call to heal our loss of connection to ourselves, to others, and to our spiritual identities. The Power of Ritual reminds us that what we already do every day matters—and has the potential to become a powerful experience of reflection, sanctuary, and meaning.

Celtic Quest

This book looks at Celtic spirituality in the modern age. At its best, Celtic spirituality seems to fill a real need, and whether it is historically true, it has developed in its own right. However, it is also true that much of what is called Celtic is derived from what others have written, often known at third hand, which has then been cited as fact, or adapted by new writers. Either way it is worth considering how and why this has happened and to learn more about how Celtic spirituality has developed, why it is so important at present, and how, in spite of these drawbacks, it remains so attractive. "Power addresses important questions of culture and tradition; her work should intrigue scholars as well as spiritual seekers."-Library Journal

The Tao Te Ching is an ancient spiritual text from China. It is one of the most wonderful books ever (as proven by special science methods, honest) for helping us human beings to understand life, the universe, and everything. It can help us pierce the mystery, discover the hidden, and do no less than eff the ineffable. Through poetry and metaphor the Tao Te Ching nudges our consciousness towards greater understanding of the nature of life in all its wonderful mystery and subtle challenge. In this new version, Francis Briers (Interfaith Minister, black belt martial artist, and accidental mystic) has taken the Tao's timeless wisdom and set it in modern language to make it easier to digest for a new generation of meaning seekers and spiritual explorers. PRE-PUBLICATION REVIEWS: "Francis Briers has done a brilliant job of casting the Tao Te Ching into a modern and popular form. His rendition flows with a humour and innocence that truly reflect the essence of the Taoist tradition. Whether you are approaching philosophy and personal development for the first time, or are an experienced explorer, My Tao Te Ching will make you smile with its wry insights and encourage you to be at ease with the wondrous miracle and paradox of your life." - William Bloom, PhD, and author 'The Power of Modern Spirituality: How to Live a Life of Compassion and Personal Fulfilment' "Each chapter is a meditation helping us not to be so grasping, to empty ourselves so that love and compassion can flow through us, without interference. The style of writing is like love poetry and reminds me of the poetry of the many mystical traditions - Such a gift. " - Dr. Josie Gregory, PhD, and Director of The Centre for Spiritual Development and Facilitation "I'm happy to have introduced Francis to the 'Tao Te Ching' as his Kung Fu Instructor many years ago and watched his progress over the years. To take on this 'bible' of Taoism could be an onerous task but Francis has the insight, wisdom and humour to make it work. It's an excellent and accurate translation with the wit and humour to keep any normal person engaged and able to understand the original meaning of the text with those deep 'glimpses' that can only come from true understanding." - Steve Rowe, 8th Dan Karate, International Tai Chi Teacher, Chairman of the Martial Arts Standards Agency and Shi Kon Martial Arts International "A beautiful book which touches on the wonderful, mysterious and sometimes ridiculous nature of life, the universe, and everything. Wonderful, creative and enjoyable!" - Sue Cheshire, CEO & Founder, Global Leaders Academy "In this version of the Tao Te Ching, Francis Briers has brought to us a unique, playful, humorous, contemporary, and relevant edition of this well of delights. I find it a helpful, practical, and, at points, very funny read. Making a traditional text live in the modern world like this provides a valuable resource to us busy bees." - Luke Concannon, No.1 hit musician and activist To read some of the chapters, go here: http: //www.fudoshin.org.uk/blog/category/my-tao-te-ching
