What the Critics Say

"In this mixture of humor, grief and how-to instructions on achieving enlightenment, Bernstein offers more than just autobiography or a user’s guide to meditation.... A groovy blend of meditative and instructive writing." (Kirkus)

    Story
    "Valley Girl Meets ACIM"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Sort of. A lot of cutsie words and phrases. Definitely a chick book (no disrespect). Lots of talk about boy friends, self- esteem issues, and drug-addiction. It seemed with all the exercises at the end of each chapter that she was writing her own student manual. I did enjoy her positive attitude but I wouldn't say that this is a deep book with thought provoking reflections on A Course in Miracles.

    Story
    "For Younger Crowd, I guess"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Something about Garbrielle doesn't feel right for me. I just don't resonate. Do think she would have great appeal for newbie Course members or in the ages of 20-30 . Author did a good job, it just didn't strike me personally. But then, I am quite used to anything having to do with ACIM blowing my MIND and traveling incredible depths of thought, mystery and spritiual principles. I am used to ACIM being like NOTHING else. This audio fell short for me, but I had SUPER high expectations too.

    Nice introudction material for a new student or a younger listener.

    Story
    "Spiritual Hot Chocolate"
    What made the experience of listening to Spirit Junkie the most enjoyable?

    Gabby's personality makes hearing her read her story really endearing and touching. Her personality is unique, and so relatable. Over the past year that voice has helped me grow and adjust to some pretty difficult situations. While listening to the book I felt we were having another


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Spirit Junkie?

    I enjoyed hearing about her experience with John of God in more detail. Opening yourself up to what is possible, without building super-strong boundaries is key. Really touched me.


    What does Gabrielle Bernstein bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The book is great, and after hearing her read I bought the book so I could go back and underline certain passages. For me, hearing her read seemed more personal. Perhaps that is because I've spoken to her one-on-one, on the phone. I like her gravel-y voice.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Spirit Junkie?

    Since hearing the book, I have recognized the real power of meditation, and come to think of it as a non-negotiable in my life. I know Gabby loves her meditation, and now I'm recognizing the full value of being still with God. It's huge!

    "Prayers are for asking, Mediation is for listening"

    How many times have I heard or said “Have you prayed about it?” Thanks to Gabrielle Bernstein I know understand that “Praying is for asking and mediation is for listening.” I’m not sure how a book falls into your Audible cart but Spirit Junkie fell in mine. This book truly comes into your life when it’s supposed to.

    Story
    "Good for younger audience"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, to younger people, but not to friends my age. I actually thought the author had a compelling story for younger people. It was well written and heartfelt. Given that I am a senior citizen, it was difficult for me to relate to the the agonies of youth and young adulthood, since they have been resolved for me for some time.

    Story
    "An introduction to "A course in miracles""
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I love the personal way Gabrielle Bernstein use the form of memoir to introduce a. New audience to a "course in miracles" her work can aid you when taking on this massive course. Her guidance might make the 365 long day course. She even find ways to find techniques which give very quickly results. It is as you get a coach right in your head.

    Maybe the course in miracles is too much for you; This book is a great port to the course when you want changes to appear: Quickly.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    It made me start on a "Course in miracles"


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    She makes the work fashionable


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    The narration was amazing

    Story
    "Pretty Good Stuff!!!"
    Where does Spirit Junkie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is my second audio book experience so I'm no expert, but Gabrielle Bernstein communicates her points in a way that is very personable; easy to understand and identify with.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    She has an interesting voice and speaks like she would if you were having a face-to-face conversation.


    What did you learn from Spirit Junkie that you would use in your daily life?

    All of them! She drops a lot of "truth bombs" throughout the whole book, so I found myself thinking "Dayum! Now I understand why this happened!" or "Wow! That's why I do that!"

    It's a relief to know I'm not the only one going through these things.


    Any additional comments?

    I have Gabrielle Bernstein's book "May Cause Miracles" on Kindle and have been going through all the exercises on that as well. I'm thankful that she has taken the time to share her experiences and information in such an open, honest, and approachable way.
