    We often think of saints as rare individuals whose gifts far exceed our own, and St. Francis is no exception. But for Fr. Richard Rohr, a prolific author and renowned speaker, the life and teachings of this beloved figure offer an authentic spirituality we can all embody.

    In popular usage, mysticism typically refers to New Age or Eastern forms of spirituality. However, the mystical tradition is also an important component of the Christian tradition. At its heart--and much like its expression in other faith traditions--Christian mysticism is an ancient practice that incorporates meditation, contemplation, worship, philosophy, the quest for personal enlightenment, and the experience of Divine presence.

  • Immortal Diamond: The Search for Our True Self

    Story

    In his best-selling book Falling Upward, Richard Rohr talked about ego (or the False Self) and how it gets in the way of spiritual maturity. But if there's a False Self, is there also a True Self? What is it? How is it found? Why does it matter? And what does it have to do with the spiritual journey? This book likens True Self to a diamond, buried deep within us, formed under the intense pressure of our lives, that must be searched for, uncovered, separated from all the debris of ego that surrounds it.

    What disappointed you about Immortal Diamond?

    I own at least 14 of this authors book... I even ordered 2 of the hard copies in advance.. I was so disappointed in the book however... Was expecting a spirtual book and I got a book written by a very intelligent knowledgeable person but Mr Rohr did not write from his heart or spirit on this one... or it wasn't God inspired I guess I would say...


    Has Immortal Diamond turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What didn’t you like about Kevin Pierce’s performance?

    Good read... prefer the Authors voice.. but I do on all books... I think the annointing goes with the author
