About this title

Synopsis:

In SPIRITUAL SAMPLER Ellen Dionna holds the flame that guides the pilgrim to ever deepening encounter with the Divine. She uses her experience as an interfaith spiritual director, workshop leader, and psychotherapist to create a profound manual for spiritual discovery and development. The work is sensitively informed by her unique personal journey, most notably living for many years "off the grid" in wilderness Vermont where the physical labor necessary to the backwoods lifestyle and the inherent solitude and intimacy with the natural world honed and deepened her spiritual awareness, enhanced her intuitive abilities, and reawakened her communion with Guides, Angels and the spirits of Nature. With subtlety and gentle radiance Dionna reveals the context of the spiritual journey and provides the reader tools with which to travel its terrain lightly, with awareness and grace. Dionna makes the gems of spiritual practice and conscious living accessible, and her approach honors the universality of human spiritual experience. Her prose shines from the pages, inspiring the novice to explore, and the spiritually seasoned reader to enriched mystical practice. Each facet of spiritual life shimmers with authenticity and clarity as one answers Dionna's invitation to savor the splendor of the soul.

This experienve of profound solitude and intimate communion with Nature deepened her mystical response to the cosmos and the Divine, which is elegantly evident in her book, SPIRITUAL SAMPLER. Woven into her years of mystical exploration were shamanic studies with Native American elders and Celtic shamanic teachers in England, John and Caitlin Matthews, and Brazilian Amazonian shaman, Bernardo Peixoto, "Ipu", who invited her to be his "guest of honor" in apprenticing with him for two years. She has practiced daily meditation for 35 years and contemplation with her spirit guides. Dionna has designed and led workshops and seminars on spiritual life. People from all over North America attended Vision Quests led by her and her husband in Vermont's Green Mountains, based in the home they lovingly built by hand. Due to popular demand for her intuitive teachings, Dionna developed an intensive course called The Shaman's Path. She also offers private, personalized guided readings called Sacred Scrolls and is a dynamic speaker for religious groups and conferences. Just as she followed her spiritual passion to reside in the wilderness for many years, she emerged from the backwoods to follow her pssion to reach more people with her work.
