In this dramatic and engaging spiritual autobiography, Joel Morwood (now the spiritual director at the Center for Sacred Sciences in Eugene, Oregon) candidly shares the struggles and insights of his remarkable journey to spiritual Awakening. After his failed attempts to find lasting happiness as a revolutionary in the 60s and a Hollywood producer in the 70s, Joel finally turns to a spiritual path. Assisted by his study of the mystical classics from diverse religious traditions, and guided by his own numinous dreams, Joel discovers the fundamental principles of the spiritual path (attention, commitment, detachment, and surrender) and shows us how he puts them into practice in the concrete situations of his life. Having tested the teachings of the mystics in his own experience, he ultimately finds these practices have stripped him naked of all attachment, including even his striving for spiritual attainment. Then, out of this dark night of the spirit dawns the profound spiritual Awakening to Ultimate Reality. Joel's story is both a modern testimony to the universal truth taught by the mystics of all the religions, and an inspirational example illustrating how to put spiritual principles into practice in our own lives.
