We live in the Golden Age of publishing for spiritual, esoteric, and new age books of all conceivable stripes (and then there is the Internet). Amongst this wild proliferation of available information there has occurred a cheapening effect, in which many teachings have been watered down to make them palatable for a public with diminishing attention spans and suffering from information overload. For the sincere spiritual seeker there needs to be an awareness of the various ways we can go astray on the path, or fall off the path altogether. The whole idea of spirituality is to be awake, yet it is all too easy to simply end up in yet another dream world, thinking that we have found some higher truth. Rude Awakening: Perils, Pitfalls, and Hard Truths of the Spiritual Path is dedicated to examining, under a sharp light, the many ways our spiritual development goes wrong, or disappears altogether in the sheer crush of books and the routine grind of daily life.

MEDIA REVIEWS

An insightful distillation of decades of hard-won spiritual experience. There are few seekers, I suspect, who will not resonate with its message and benefit from its advice (Richard Smoley, Author, The Dice Game of Shiva and Inner Christianity) P.T. Mistlberger has a unique gift in that he writes with such integrity and authenticity that he is able to cut through all the spiritual fallacies, forcing us to question the very motives that underlie our desire for liberation and truth. Rarely have I read such a well written, brutally honest account of the spiritual path (Paula Marvelly, Author, Women of Wisdom)
