- Professor Huston Smith

Gerald Heard was an inspiring voice for the life of the spirit. Wipf & Stock is to be commended that Heard's remarkable work is being made available to a new generation of spiritual seekers.

- Dr. William H. Forthman

Required reading for those walking the spiritual path, Gerald Heard's Training for the Life of the Spirit methodically outlines the entire course of the aspirant's journey. Heard provides a time-tested roadmap for the wayfarer: There is a purpose in evolution - to evolve consciously, to evolve consciousness. That evolution is achieved only by the skilled, conscious training of our spirits. The aspirant works to subdue their ego: For in so far as we are emptied of self, so far are we freed from accident. Our habit patterns, our moods...our natures can be reconditioned, re-freed. We will be inwardly reunited, our fissured selves re-fused.

Training for the Life of the Spirit contains Gerald Heard's essential observation: Our whole life must become intentional and purposive, instead of a series of irrelevant events, adventures, and accidents, happy or unhappy.
