The Power Of Modern Spirituality
How to Live a Life of Compassion and Personal Fulfilment
By William Bloom
William Bloom, the UK's leading MBS teacher and holistic spokesperson, presents an accessible, down-to-earth strategy and practical philosophy for guiding our lives and developing our inner selves.
In THE POWER OF MODERN SPIRITUALITY, William Bloom identifies for the first time the core strategies found at the heart of all spiritual traditions and explains how everyone - regardless of background, beliefs or personality type - can develop them and immediately put them into practice. He structures his book around the key areas of connection, reflection and service, showing us how to recognise and develop these aspects of ourselves in the context of today's challenges and crises so that we gain greater meaning and purpose in our lives.
Written in a lively, intelligent and inspiring style, and drawn from Bloom's popular courses and workshops, it will help you to go more deeply into yourself and develop a greater sense of personal integrity, inner strength, a stronger connection with friends, family and colleagues, an increased sense of personal joy and of being in the driving seat of your life, and much more.
William Bloom has a doctorate in psychology from the LSE. He is one of the UK's most experienced teachers, healers and authors in the field of holistic development. He is a co-founder of Alternatives, founder and co-director of the Foundation for Holistic Spirituality, and has a regular column in CYGNUS magazine.
