    Drawing on resources as diverse as Sufism, Benedictine Monasticism, the Gurdjieff Work, and the string theory of modern physics, Cynthia Bourgeault has crafted her own unique vision of the Wisdom way in this very accessible book, nicely balanced between concept and practice.

    Story

    This was my first book by Cynthia Bourgeault. I found her through Richard Rohr's work. I am personally seeking additional guidance in how to live a deeper, more enlightened life. I found this book to be filled with beautiful images, soul inspiring metaphors, and profound insights. She draws on a vast array of traditions and provides, at least to me, a more spiritual and uplifting interpretation of Christ's words.

    I'm in the last hour of listening and I have been transfixed by the book.

    I love the narrator's voice and it has a wonderful richness to it. At times, however, I find her earnestness to be a bit off putting but it's a minor issue in an overall wonderfully narrated tale.

    I really hope the bibliography is available to us in one form or another. I highly recommend this book to those who are spiritual seekers, who seek uplifting words and inspiring metaphors to continue on the path.

    Either read silently or aloud, Spiritual Liberation can be included during meditation or prayer. Each chapter includes an affirmation that distills its core concepts into a sentence or two for the reader to easily practice throughout the day. Beckwith's personal and touching accounts guide the practitioner to integrate and activate the intrinsic gifts of divinity into everyday.

    Story

    I am new to Beckwith in general so this was my first exposure to him, apart from the Secret. I have found this book to be filled with great insights and concrete suggestions that are doable.

    My one problem with the book is that Beckwith ends each chapter with an affirmation. The problem is that the affirmations on the audible book are about 5 minutes each, with some cheesy music coming in after the first few sentences. I'm actually a big fan of affirmations, except when they're run on sentences and combined with cheesy music. Don't let this stop you, however. Just warning you to expect this. The rest of the book is top notch.

    In general, like all audible books, the Chapters aren't named and don't translate to the actual book chapters. I don't know why they do that but that's not the author's fault.

    Totally recommend this book.
