It is about twenty months since I retired from parish ministry and set off on a pilgrimage up the Ganges River in the footsteps of the Buddha to find awakening and enlightenment. That experience led me to envision and write a spiritual memoir now being published as SPIRITUAL AUDACITY: Six Disciplines of Human Flourishing. New York Times bestselling authors Sheila Heen and Douglas Stone describe its story as: “Jim’s spiritual journey takes him to the farthest reaches of the earth — and to the inner sanctum of his heart.”
You can find a further description of the book, and other testimonials, and even buy the book and write a review of your own (yes please do) at amazon.com
The B U School of Public Health thought my message on human flourishing so important for its faculty and students it has organized a free September 13, 2017 seminar on how religious disciplines impact human health, based largely on my book. Please register and attend:
Then First Parish in Concord is hosting a book launch party from 7 pm to 9 pm Friday September 22, 2017 to welcome this book into the world. All are invited!
So now I am busily working on my second book, SPIRITUAL PILGRIM: Lessons from Mystic Journeys with Five Faiths having clearly failed retirement again. Where the spirit leads I go.
