Publisher's Summary

America has given birth to a wisdom tradition entirely its own, a spirituality that is as diverse as its people, and that respects the freedom and uniqueness of each individual. Judeo-Christian traditions and the meditation practices of Asia and India...modern science and Native American teachings...Sufism and transpersonal psychology - The New American Spirituality explores what happens when these and other traditions cohabitate our unique cultural landscape. With the gifts of such diversity come important questions. Is it wise to combine different schools of thought, practices, and therapies? How do we assess the authenticity of a teacher or therapist? Is our spiritual practice really working? How can we tell? On The New American Spirituality, Elizabeth Lesser speaks to these questions with clarity and passion, weaving stories of her own trials and errors, with detailed guidelines and meditations to help us find a path of our own.

Very thorough and enlightening

My only complaint is the audio quality of this book is lacking. Otherwise, the story is magnificent. As a social worker the story providers great material for study and use with clients. She brings together all the landscapes very well and explains how they are all critical.
