9781557043023: Twenty Steps to Wisdom: A Guide to Self-Knowledge and Spiritual Well-Being

This is a time when we are hungry to know more. Our stomachs are full, and we wonder if our souls are empty. We yearn for the return of wisdom. If civilization is the “long process of learning to be kind,” then wisdom is the shared memories through the ages that guide us toward that goal. The problem is remembering what we have learned. There is a known path to wisdom and to joy. There is a beginning step; there is no endpoint. You have already started on the way. You only need to be reminded in this fast-moving world of what you know. We need to tap our collective memory. Here are twenty steps, from awakening to transformation, followed by virtually every religious and philosophical tradition, described by great minds and prophets, that have guided the best of our culture for 3000 years. Simple steps, familiar, but as the wisdom journey itself, profound, passionate, and enlightening.

About the Author:

Jennifer James, Ph.D., is a cultural anthropologist who has spent her life trying to understand how our belief systems either enhance or limit our lives. A much in-demand speaker, television and radio commentator, and newspaper columnist, Dr. James is also the author of Success Is the Quality of Your Journey, Windows, Life Is a Game of Choice, Defending Yourself Against Criticism: The Slug Manual, Women and the Blues, and Thinking in the Future Tense. She lives by Puget Sound, just south of Seattle, Washington.

Review:

This little masterpiece can restore the meaning and magic of life while guiding us on a vision journey into landscapes of the mind, body, and spirit from which we cannot return unchanged. This is a book for those who would go to their edges. This is a book for those would make a difference. -- Jean Houston, author of The Passion of Isis
