Overview

A comprehensive guide for creating a daily spiritual practice, Growing Your Inner Light gives specific advice on developing a unique spiritual path that fits exactly who you are, and what you hope to grow into as a spiritual being. Author Lara Owen clearly shows how a personalized practice can open the doors to living fully with integrity and to feeling connected with the surrounding world.

For readers yearning for a sense of inner peace, and a direct experience of spiritual meaning and connection, Growing Your Inner Light is a groundbreaking, transformative journey through thirteen phases of your growth, including: developing intuition; creating sacred spaces and altars; understanding your dreams; exploring the importance of retreats, meditation, and rituals.

Growing Your Inner Light gives readers the freedom to integrate from different traditions -- and develop new ones -- in order to create their own spiritual tradition. One former student of Lara's program shared that she feels "less like a spiritual tourist and more like a pilgrim." Spiritual development is a natural part of being human, and a vital way to expand the intensity of your inner light throughout your life.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Owen (Her Blood Is Gold: Awakening to the Wisdom of Menstruation; Love Begins at 40: A Guide to Starting Over) here addresses herself to the spiritual journey. Recognizing that many undertake such journeys in relative isolation or seek out solutions and approaches all their own, she offers advice on matters such as creating sacred space, rituals, and altars; coming to terms with personal history, meditation, and dreams; and the sense of wonder and our making use of time spent alone. VERDICT This pleasant but rather generalized guide through alternative spiritual practice is worth considering for a neopagan audience.
From the Publisher
