Overview

An ancient spiritual practice rediscovered—and re-imaginated—for today.

This fascinating introduction to an ancient spiritual practice is for all of us who are searching for fresh spiritual insight. People of all faiths—and even those with no particular religious involvement—are discovering spiritual direction.

Traditionally identified with Christianity, but also resembling the relationship between teacher and student in Buddhism, sheikh and disciple in Islam, and rebbe and Hasid in Judaism, spiritual direction is a distinct kind of relationship for enhancing spiritual growth. And its renewed popularity has led to a now uniquely accessible modern phenomenon: interfaith spiritual direction.

Howard Addison presents personal accounts from the lives of people representing a broad spectrum of religious and spiritual traditions to show how we can find guidance and inspiration from people of other faiths—without ever leaving our own. This one-of-a-kind guide explores:

  • Where to find spiritual guidance within your own faith community or beyond it.
  • How spiritual direction can help you, even if you come from no formal religious background.
  • Why and when it may be appropriate to seek a spiritual guide from a faith other than your own.
  • What interfaith spiritual direction means for the future of religion and spirituality in our world.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Spiritual direction is the process that helps a person to be aware of God s presence in his or her life and to determine how best to follow God s direction. Rabbi Addison (The Enneagram and Kabbalah) was the last student assistant to the famous theologian and social activist Abraham Joshua Herschel. With life stories and discussions, the author describes how he has benefited from the spiritual guidance of people belonging to faiths other than his own: by being open to other religious traditions while remaining faithful to his Judaism. Addison is certainly not the first to engage in such an interfaith quest for spiritual direction, yet he does stand out by not just discussing the process but also tackling the issues involved. He is aware that not everyone will agree that such interfaith guidance can or should be sought. A glossary and a helpful list of resources are appended. Recommended for collections with religious inspirational material. John Moryl, Yeshiva Univ. Lib., New York Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
