A Spiritual Renegade’s Guide to the Good Life (Beyond Words Press)
A Spiritual Renegade’s Guide to the Good Life offers a radical, edgy, counter-cultural alternative to both the dead-end of modern consumer capitalist ideology and the toothless, self-absorbed navel-gazing of many contemporary spiritual self-help books. It is a hard-core, no-nonsense, but also very practical guidebook directed at the general audience, filled with “how to” advice for those who are desperate enough to take up arms and make a revolutionary inner change in their lives.
A Spiritual Renegade’s Guide to the Good Life challenges and motivates readers to take back control of and responsibility for their own lives – to stop feeling like helpless victims and to cease blaming others for their own unhappiness. This book is not for the faint-hearted but for the big-hearted! Bringing together the ancient insights of Buddhist philosophy with the recent discoveries of post-modern theory, the book is organized into sections on how to radically change both the past and the future, as well as how to live happily in the here and now regardless of external circumstances. A Spiritual Renegade’s Guide to the Good Life offers a sophisticated but workable option for readers looking for the real methods for achieving the true purpose of one’s life.
