Overview

In 7 Keys to Spiritual Wellness, best-selling author Joe Paprocki provides a prescription for spiritual health based on the rich wisdom of Catholic Tradition. Through his nondogmatic, downright inviting style of writing, Paprocki makes this book eminently accessible to non-Catholics and "seekers" as well.

Recognizing that the spiritual immune system is weakened almost daily by toxic patterns and attitudes that negatively impact our ability to live in a harmonious relationship with God and others, Paprocki offers seven enduring and reliable strategies for achieving spiritual wellness. After identifying practical ways to integrate each of these strategies into daily living, he describes seven persistent dangers to our spiritual well-being and how these dangers manifest themselves in our lives.

At its core, 7 Keys to Spiritual Wellness helps us see the Christian faith not as a collection of rules and doctrine, but as a spiritual path--a path whose guideposts for spiritual wellness are sure to lead us to a more meaningful life and to a much richer experience of our faith.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Paprocki hits high stride in his treatment of beauty and imagination, two keys to a vigorous and fulfilling spiritual life of well-being."
--Spirituality & Practice

 "Paprocki packages the church's traditional prescription for holiness as the spritual cure to what ails Americans in the 21st century -- and he does it in a down-to-earth, non-preachy way... He quotes scripture but also "Seinfeld"; cites popes and Pink Floyd; and refers to theological greats like Hans Urs von Balthasar but also to popular authors."
-- Heidi Schlumpf, National Catholic Reporter

 “Nearly every page provides profound insights into spiritual wellness, what keeps us from attaining it, and how we can move toward achieving it.”
-- RTJ’s Creative Catechist

"Paprocki’s extensive knowledge of his subject, his creativity, and his enthusiasm and passion are evident on every page. To pastors and directors of religious education everywhere: This is a book for every catechist in your parish."
U.S. Catholic

"Paprocki’s keys are not complicated in their statement and include seeking good in others, thinking through one’s actions, and looking for beauty. However, implementing these keys will require discipline and could transform the reader’s life if implemented to any serious degree. For that reason, Paprocki has written a powerful little book that could bring great satisfaction to those who choose to follow it."
-- Annie Peters, Portland Book Review

 "Joe Paprocki's books, including the latest, 7 Keys to Spiritual Wellness, demonstrate his gift for teaching and his deep commitment to a healthy spirituality."
- Carol Blank, WritingWorks
