    "Highly recommended"

    Beautifully written and narrated. Roger Walsh has a gift for getting to the roots of the world's religions and distilling the essence in a very accessable way. This is not as much study in world religions as a revelation of the core teachings they have in common. Great quotations from each tradition and a continuous pointing to the source of all. Very enlightening.

    "orientation in the jungle of spirituality"

    you just started to read about spiritual traditions, and you are confused about the multitude of wisdom and world views? listen to this book. roger gives a profound overview of how to jump-start your own spiritual path with comparisons (non judgmental) between the major traditions. you will see: they have so much in common...

    Wow I have listened to this fantastic narrative about living and embracing life for the tenth time since I purchased it.Mr Walsh genuinely is trying to reach his listeners through his series of the Seven Perennial Practices , based from the different traditions of religions from around the world.Incorporating his wisdom for us to learn and live a more fulfilling life.His background in psychology, neuroscience,physiology,psychiatry and medicine comes through as part of the holistic nurturing of the human person.A very gifted and inspiring author for these turbulent times.His works have won numerable awards and it is easy to see why.
