That we all want to live meaningful, happy lives is self-evident. The question is, how? Finding God in the Body answers this question with spiritual practice.

Finding God in the Body draws from the wisdom of the world's traditions--Buddhism, contemplative Christianity, Judaism, and Twelve-Step spirituality--to present a modern view of embodied spirituality. It turns inward to examine the human condition, meeting personal suffering with heartfelt insight and transformative practice.

Ben Riggs leaves no stone un-turned, addressing each stage of the journey as he explores the space between fundamentalism and atheism to uncover a spirituality that resonates with the modern, Western mind. Then he binds that view to an actionable path of self-analysis, prayer, and meditation, which introduce the reader to the God of the body.

This book is a much-needed addition to the corpus of spiritual literature,and a must-read for all modern seekers. Purchase your copy today.
