Spirituality for Dummies

Overview

A quiet voice within is telling you that there is more to life than what you can perceive with your five senses. Sometimes you feel that the material world, with all its cares and vanities is a veil of illusions beyond which lies a truth that transcends race, gender, ethnicity, status, family, job and worldly ambitions.

Overview

A quiet voice within is telling you that there is more to life than what you can perceive with your five senses. Sometimes you feel that the material world, with all its cares and vanities is a veil of illusions beyond which lies a truth that transcends race, gender, ethnicity, status, family, job and worldly ambitions. Christ, Buddha, Muhammad, Lao-tsu, Plato, and other spiritual teachers down through the ages dedicated their lives to the pursuit of that that higher truth, and their words live on to inspire us. Because it extends beyond matter, spirituality cannot be fully expressed in words, but the spirit exists inside you, and hearing the right words may trigger your own awakening to higher perception.

A book that will exhilarate your mind and inflame your soul, Spirituality For Dummies puts you on the path to living a more spiritual life. Author Sharon Janis simplifies not-so-simple concepts from an array of spiritual disciplines and shows you how to:

  • Incorporate spirituality into your everyday life
  • Uplift relationships with all the people in your life
  • Strengthen the connection between body and mind
  • Fulfill your dreams through affirmations
  • Grow through adversity
  • Use spiritual practices to bring meaning into your life

In plain English, Janis explores spiritual ideas from a variety of religious and philosophical texts in combination with relevant psychological and scientific research. Topics covered include:

  • Uncovering your own spirit and expanding your awareness
  • How science and spirituality fit together
  • Spiritual practices to energize your body, empower your mind, and nourish your spirit
  • Cultivating compassion, truthfulness, humility and other spiritual virtues
  • Moving from greed and worldly attachments to spiritual freedom
  • Seeking spirituality in every moment

Spirituality For Dummies also includes a bonus audio CD featuring more than 60 minutes of inspirational music, including:

  • Gospel songs from the Agape international choir
  • Eastern songs and chants performed in their native languages
  • Christian chanting by the Desert Fathers

A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first humble step. Spirituality For Dummies brings spirituality down to earth to help you on take your first humble steps toward higher consciousness.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

The inevitable has occurred: we are "dummies" again. Like most of the books in the "Dummies" series, this second edition is attractively laid out, divided into brief chapters, and punctuated with icons ("Tip," "Try This," "Words of Wisdom"), but the sections Janis devotes to dharma and karma should be a clue that, despite the author's intention to reach all faiths, her spirituality of affirmation, balance, and awareness is likely to make more sense to non-Western seekers than to Jews, Muslims, or Christians. Still, this is by no means the only "Dummies" book for the spiritual reader; others include Christianity for Dummies, Catholicism for Dummies, and Islam for Dummies, to name a few. The book includes a CD of inspirational music.

    Music on the enclosed CD is pretty feeble, but the book itself is good.
