There is an expression, Karen Henson Jones writes: If God wants you to understand something, first he will whisper in your ear. If you still don't listen, he will tap your shoulder. And if you still don't listen, he'll hit you over the head with a brick. Stuck in a life that wasn't working, Henson Jones was hit with a brick when a cardiac event and medical snafu left her on the brink of death. While out of body, she made a request to return to earth. But her return was fraught with difficulty--from physical agony to depression to the ongoing struggle to find meaning. Blindsided again and again, she rose to teach others the message of the heart. As Karen journeys back to life, she discovers Kundalini Yoga in Los Angeles, meditation in India, the possibility of love in Italy, happiness in Bhutan, and a deeper spiritual connection in the Holy Land. "This book is a flashlight for people in the dark," she writes. It's a heartfelt perspective on living a life of fulfillment, exploring what lies beyond, and the power of hope, love, and faith when circumstances seem to work against us.

A spiritual life isn't only for the elite, saintly few, or for monastics cloistered away from the rest of the world. We all wrestle with the question of how to live a good, dharmic life, no matter where we are. And we can all find ways to support our spiritual lives even in the midst of our jobs, family responsibilities, and all the trials and tribulations of modern life. Indeed, every situation in life is given to us precisely for our spiritual growth. Asha Praver has spent 40 years as a spiritual counselor and a disciple of the great saint Paramhansa Yogananda, and is adept at turning every worldly problem towards a spiritual solution. This book is compiled from actual questions from people like you and me, along with Asha's wise and caring answers.

In a skeptical age when books like Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion are bestsellers, when the idea of God as a patriarch in the sky is out of fashion, and when atrocities are committed in the name of religion, can faith in a higher power survive? Chopra takes on Dawkins with a passionate view of God as pure consciousness. Finding God, Chopra says, is being aware of pure awareness, intelligence, creativity, potential, bliss, and other aspects of the transcendent world expanding in our lives. From unbelief to faith to reliable knowledge, Chopra charts a secular path to a spiritual life which begins with “a curiosity that something as unbelievable as God might actually exist."

AUM is the Cosmic Sound from which all creation arises, and for millennia spiritual seekers of all traditions have found their paths to the Divine through direct communion with it. In his new book, Joseph Cornell (Nayaswami Bharat) brings us all closer to the healing and protective powers of this holy vibration. Even the reading experience itself seems to embody the experience of AUM in a way that is at once comforting, thrilling, and inspiring. Included are numerous visualizations and guided meditations, as well as a selection of other articles he's written on meditation and on a spiritual approach to life. This is a marvelous book for anyone looking to deepen their meditation, commune with God through Nature, or bring a greater sense of the Divine into their life.
