Publisher's Summary

The Laws of Spirit, a parable and teaching tale, opens as Dan Millman encounters a mysterious woman sage in the wooded hills near his home. Through stories, tests, and experiences in the wild, she challenges Millman to examine twelve core principles that underlie human existence: Balance, choice, process, presence, compassion, faith, expectation, integrity, action, cycles, surrender, and unity.

The program reveals how these keys - at the heart of every religion, culture, and moral system - can lead to a deeper sense of meaning, connection, and harmony with the world and transform relationships, careers, finance, and health. Quotations and reminders from across the centuries inform and inspire listeners as they accompany Dan on his journey to wisdom.

As Millman relates, "These laws belong to each and all of us. They are found within our own hearts and at the heart of every religion, moral system, and spiritual tradition." As you make your own odyssey through this transformative tale, you will find keys to life's hidden potential and open doors to a deeper sense of meaning and connection with all of creation.

Outstanding!

I would highly recommend this book to EVERYONE! Also anyone who is on a spiritual path to obtaining more wisdom! These LAWS are for every day life, and can help us in all areas of our journey here on earth. If we could learn to live these laws as they are presented, I believe this world would be a much better place.

Dan Millman's reading, performance, and story is outstanding! So far, I have listened to it at least 9 times! That's just how much I am moved by the content of this story and teaching. And even now, I'm starting on number 10! I would strongly recommend you getting the BOOK as well, and taking good notes until you become familiar with these Laws and are able to LIVE them in your daily life. Thank You Dan! 🌺

one of my favs

My cousin gave me this book when I was a teenager. I have always loved to refer back to it. I think it's very special that I get to hear Dan narrate it and listen to it whenever I want.

Essencial for living a meaningful life.

Love, gratitude and compassion are the driving forces of our life. We are one. Love yourself and honor the God we have in our hearts
and souls. Find the sage we have deep inside. Have faith and trust your heart.

A Simple Parable Worth Listening Regularly

This book gave simple explanations to some of life's universal laws.

The use of the parable serves as a seed to anyone looking for self-awareness and self-actualization without being dismissive of the concepts.

It can be easy to consider the book's ideas too woo-woo but I think the objective is to introduce the laws and plant the seed for deeper exploration.

Many things resonated and didn't need logical explanation but I can see some people asking for more "meat" behind the arguments.

I see this book as a primer for personal reflection and exploration.

I enjoyed it and will listen again because many ideas rang true whether I can logically explain them or not.

Reflect

I enjoyed this book it has re-awoke what I always felt dear in my heart. It gives a clear image what life should be about and handled. How to be one with your inner self and peace with your self. Some people might disagree but that is the beauty about life we all don’t need to agree. Quick read but need to be ready to relax absorb the book.

A permanent keeper

Listen again and again. It’s okay to rinse repeat rinse repeat. Dan never disappoints. He’s a lucky man to experience what he does. Better for me he always writes about it-

All you have is right NOW - So buy it, in the NOW

This is a book EVERYONE should listen to! The reason I loved Way of the Peaceful Warrior so much, was because it had a great story and a lot of life lessons. This has a more simplistic story, but in 2 hours it has given more life lessons than way of the peaceful warrior. I shall listen to this over and over and over! BUY THIS BOOK NOW

Another nice little story to help guide you in life.

Exceptional story telling!

It is true that there is nothing new under the sun. It is also true that old information can be told in a new way there by opening new doors and windows to knowledge! This is what this book has done for me. It was very refreshing after a long time without such refreshment! The narration: 10/10

I liked the lightness of this book. It was witty and meaningful

I would recommend this book to someone on a spiritual path, even if you’ve been on it for a while. This book brings meaning to our life, and in a light fun way , shows us who we are and how we’re all connected. Dan Millman is a great storyteller.

This book takes the mind on a journey of pleasurable amazing

It’s something akin to experiencing all of the seasons in its fullness of wonder from first page to the last word.
The book is ‘complete’, making one ‘experience’ literally all of the facets it intends to reach and stir up in ones thinking, feeling, conscious and unconscious....
If I weren’t grateful for the amazingly intelligent and creative mind of the person which writes the story, parable, or metaphor for my own benefit of expansion - I would envy the ability of being able to compose such a story!... it’s a wow feeling to the sense beyond our norm of everyday state physically, emotionally and spiritually - therefore a must read
