In Desperately Seeking Spirituality, sacred spelunker and sociologist Meredith Gould, combines practical wisdom with lived experience to explain why and when traditional practices don’t work for today’s seeker and then how to choose ones that will. In short, easy-to-read chapters and with characteristic wit, Gould provides counsel for reframing perception to discover the sacred in everyday life.
This guide is for self-identified seekers who have tried some, many, or even all the classic spiritual practices and then, given up on them when they stop working. In Desperately Seeking Spirituality, Gould invites readers to embrace a broader definition of practice that shifts focus from doing to being.
"Are your spiritual practices no longer working for you? With her usual witty, clever, and concise prose, Meredith Gould charts for readers a refreshing new way to examine the passages through 'dark nights.' She provides suggestions that just may lead you to a deepened sense of being and open your eyes to the sacredness in everyday life." -- Richard Rohr, OFM
