    Have you ever decided to read a book based on its cover? I have

    Have you ever decided to read a book based on its cover? I have and did for Quest written by Denise Linn and Meadow Linn. It is difficult not to. The cover shows a beautiful image of a meandering pathway through a sun-dappled forest which gradually shifts into an indigo night sky with countless stars. It is an image that explains the content of the book very well, depicting the process of the quest: a retreat into nature in solitude and contemplation that can lead the quest seeker into the spiritual realm and provide him or her with life direction and purpose.

    This book introduces the idea of the quest and explains how this ancient spiritual practice continues to be relevant today. Arguably, in the accelerated hustle and bustle of our daily lives, this practice is more important today than ever before. The writing style, itself, is relaxed, and a pleasure to read. The authors begin by explaining what the quest is, its spiritual origins, and the mysterious and magical possibilities that can emerge from undertaking this search for spirit. One cannot help but want to experience this revered ritual. However, the authors make it clear that this is an experience that requires spiritual, emotional, and practical preparation. The authors devote a substantial part of the book preparing the quest seeker and explaining the many prerequisites of going on a quest. It is clear that thorough preparation is critical to a successful journey.

    What follows is a full explanation of the various stages of the quest, once it is embarked upon. This is the most magical part of the book. The chapter on the sacred medicine wheel and how one can invoke the wisdom of the four elements and four directions is inspiring. The following chapter, which presents a five-step guide for the quest seeker’s solitary time in nature so that he or she has a direction and focus during the quest, is thought-provoking. While this chapter is written in the context of the spiritual ritual, this five-step process is applicable in a variety of contexts, for anyone who is on a path of self-discovery regardless of the phase one may be in life.
    I am not surprised that I have enjoyed this book as much as I have. I have two other books by Denise Linn in my library and enjoy reading them as well. What is not expected and especially invaluable in this book is the inclusion of the testimonials. For me, a book about a spiritual ritual imbued with so much magical and mysterious synchronicities would be less credible without these anecdotes to substantiate it. The testimonials are the most persuasive arguments for embarking on a quest. The testimonials are examples of how the world works in beautiful, unexpected ways. I know that this is a book that I will turn to as a reference and inspirational guide time and time again.

    FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for this review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment of the product.
