The Chrysalis Reader celebrates its tenth anniversary with Eternal Wellness, an anthology of original writing on how to become spiritually centered, in alignment with the universe at large, in harmony with life, and in touch with our understanding of the spirit that flows through it all.
Through essays, short stories, and poetry, we learn that being spiritually grounded may mean, for one person, being seated beside a pond in predawn light, allowing troubling thoughts to settle. For another, it may mean standing in line at the bank, meditating on the breath behind the breath. Yet for another, it means moving mindfully alone among the massive sandstone outcrops of the canyonlands, while an Orthodox priest finds healing in action, tending to the injured on 9/11 and rebuilding his fallen church after the devastating attack in New York City.
A myriad of practices point to spiritual wellness and enlightenment, but which practices are for us? Which ones can we trust? The authors in this volume examine the dynamic of spiritual balance, asking, for instance, what constitutes a healthy diet of spiritual nourishment. Can one overdose on too much of a good thing?
