A journey through the seven most common and important spiritual experiences

• Discover how to recognize experiences of the Sacred and integrate them into daily life for spiritual growth, healing, wholeness, inspiration, resilience, and connection

• Shares intimate, firsthand examples of spiritual experiences and explores how they happen, what they are like, what they mean, and how they can help us

• Presents simple exercises and common practices to enter the states of super-consciousness that lead to spiritual experiences and connection with the Sacred

We all have unexpected moments that take us out of our ordinary lives, and into a sense of the extraordinary. Any one of us can have an experience that reveals our connection to the Sacred, through profound love, wisdom, or a radical shift in perception. Yet how often do we brush off these flashes of spiritual wonder, not realizing they can be stepping stones on the path of spiritual growth and personal resilience. As we acknowledge the expansiveness of the human heart and mind we access insights and feelings that help us to make peace with even the most difficult and confusing life circumstance.

Through dynamic stories of firsthand accounts, Jonathan Ellerby guides us in how to recognize and integrate the spiritual experiences that are already a part of our life and those that we may yet pursue. As we explore the non-ordinary modes of perception and the super-states of consciousness that underlie them, we realize how spiritual experiences happen, what they mean, and how they can help us cultivate creativity, healing, and groundedness.

Through simple exercises and sacred practices designed to expand perception, we go deeper and enter non-ordinary states of consciousness, which can enable us to have direct awareness of the fullness of life and higher consciousness.

Providing a map for navigating sacred encounters, this guide prepares us to face life with passion, purpose, and resilience.
