Reflections on the Spiritual Path – new book

Message in a Bottle: Reflections on the Spiritual Path is a new book from the TAT Foundation Press. Rather than another book by a spiritual teacher, this book takes the approach of asking spiritual seekers, those still on the path to “finding,” to share their stories and wisdom. Interestingly, each contributor to this volume also includes a “message in a bottle” to their younger self. Rather than advice to others, that message is what they would say to themselves in hindsight.

In this episode, I interview one of the contributors to this volume, to delve deeper into what he learned from writing his chapter. Along the way, we touch on dreamwork, Tony Robbins, Richard Rose, self inquiry, and more.
