How I Found God in Everyone and Everywhere: An Anthology of Spiritual Memoirs

 
How I Found God in Everyone and Everywhere captures for a general audience the spiritual shift away from a God “up there” and “out there” and towards an immanent divine right here. It’s built around the personal journeys of a close-knit group of prominent contributors. Their spiritual visions of immanence, sometimes called “panentheism,” are serving as a path of spiritual return for a growing number of seekers today. Contributors include Deepak Chopra, Richard Rohr, Rupert Sheldrake, Matthew Fox, and Cynthia Bourgeault.

You need wise spiritual friends on a human journey.

Have your head and your heart stopped talking to each other?

Has pluralism threatened your particular experience of God?

Are you looking for rich specificity in your spiritual journey without stifling exclusivity?

Do you wish science and religion could be in a healthy relationship instead of a codependent one?

Are you looking for help seeing God in your neighbors and family during this polarizing time?

Join us this Fall for a deeply personal, multi-faith look at one of the most vulnerable parts of being human: Where and how we experience God.

If you’re here right now, you’re in good company.

Why this book?

Much can be gained from trailing the spiritual narratives of those who have traveled ahead of us, for the God they have found, we may never have considered. How I Found God in Everyone and Everywhere captures for a the spiritual nomad the shift away from popular notions of a God “up there” and “out there” and toward immanent and inclusive understandings of a God in our very midst.

As these diverse spiritual memoirs testify, for many today, the spiritual journey has lead to the discovery of a divine reality that, it turns out, we already inhabit, one that encompasses us all. Sometimes called “panentheism,” this relational and participatory vision is allowing for a “return to God after God” and thus a continuation of the spiritual journey. This God is not found in some people and some places, but in everyone and everywhere.

In other words, we’re creating a pop-up community for finding friends along the way. You’ll get to engage in thoughtful email reflections, a weekly video conversation, and continuous interaction with fellow Book Club members.

The cost? A course like this is typically offered for $59 or more, but contribute whatever you can to help make this possible for everyone. No human is turned down for lack of funds…if you are a form of A.I. then we will think about it.
