This book was my Christmas gift to many of my friends. Those who have started reading it, have, without exception, commented on the directness, elegance and simplicity of William Bloom’s writing style (and two of these people are published writers themselves). I enjoy his style largely because he is one of the few people I know who actually writes conversationally: he writes like he talks.
William has been one of the leaders of the holistic spirituality movement in the United Kingdom. He has been associated with Findhorn and was one of the founders of the Alternatives program of speakers and workshops at St. James’s, Piccadilly, in London. He has spent the last twenty or so years teaching concepts of holistic spirituality, spiritual companionship and approaches to education and psychology that include, not ignore, the spiritual element in human life.
This book captures the key concepts of holistic spirituality and “how it works” in language that anyone can understand, whether scholar or seeker. It’s fun to read because of William’s style, but incomparably deep and universal in its wisdom. It’s a great book to read at the beginning of a new year.
