“Offers wonderful ways to deepen spirituality without compromising your truth. Bowen’s delightful book smashes assumptions and stereotypes while managing deep respect for diverse beliefs. As soon as I finished it, I knew I wanted to read it again and again."
—Tami Meise, Guide for Spiritual Living
An indispensable guide for seekers, those newly embarking on a spiritual journey, or members of spiritual communities, Spiritual Rebel is for anyone who desires meaningful spiritual experiences without having to commit exclusively to one path or having to fear they might be “doing it wrong.” May this diverse collection of practices and resources inspire the Force within you, by whatever name you call it!
Bringing together insights from a wide range of traditions―from Taoism to Jediism to Yoga to Science―Spiritual Rebel unveils three weeks of unconventional practices—including forest bathing, hiking, cat-gazing, mindfulness, and sacred spave crashing to name just a few. Combining pop culture with ancient wisdom, this book helps not only spiritual seekers—but also agnostics, atheists, the spiritual-but-not-religious, and the (joyfully) spiritually confused—curate meaningful spiritual moments throughout the day.
Inspired by her childhood fascination with Star Wars, Sarah Bowen is a bookworm who can’t stop reading, an unrelenting researcher, and an inspiring interspiritual tour guide who approaches spirituality from an edgy, vivid perspective. Mining the world’s philosophical, scientific, and religious traditions for juicy tidbits, Sarah draws on the wisdom of Wayne Teasdale, Dr. Andrew Newberg, Lindsay Mack, Abraham Joshua Heschel, Neil deGrasse Tyson, John Muir, Diane Berke, Dr. Qing Li, Deepak Chopra, Ram Dass, Thich Nhat Hanh, Madeleine L'Engle, Krishna Das, Francesco Mastalia, Steven D. Farmer, Joshua Coombes, Belden C. Lane, and many others (including Princess Leia and Yoda).
Whether you are at the beginning of your spiritual journey or are a spiritual all-star, you will find new ways to connect with something bigger than yourself to seek your true calling.
Hang on, it’s going to be quite a ride.
