SPIRIT JUNKIE by Gabrielle Bernstein

SPIRIT JUNKIE

A Radical Road to Discovering Self-Love and Miracles

KIRKUS REVIEW

Journey the road to self-fulfillment through the eyes of a true believer.

Opening the doors to our deepest, darkest and most frightening obsessions, anxieties and nightmares can result in an unbalancing in our lives, writes Bernstein (Add More-ing to Your Life: A Hip Guide to Happiness, 2011, etc.). That’s when fear steps in and overwhelms love. This perceptive yet atypical outlook is just a glimpse into the world of the author, whom the New York Times had christened “the next generation guru,” a girl unafraid to embrace love and pass off most every “problem” as illusion. 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. Fluidly and openly sharing her own struggles and successes is a maneuver guaranteed to warm hearts and chill spirits, and it ultimately leads readers down the path to their own spiritual connection. The author writes in easily understandable prose, describing her evolution from a fearful, attention-seeking young girl into a courageous and loving teacher and mentor always hungry for a new learning experience. Bernstein’s guide will help readers welcome meditation and prayer into their lives and dismiss their egos as illusions.

A groovy blend of meditative and instructive writing.
