Sarah Bowen talks about her new book Spiritual Rebel: A positively Addictive Guide To Finding Deeper perspective & Higher Purpose
Sarah Bowen encourages people to explore their own personal spiritual style, most rooted perspectives, and life purpose.
Rather than relying on adherence to a specific belief system, Spiritual Rebel guides readers to clarify the beliefs that are personally meaningful, redefine outdated concepts, mix and match practices, experience connection, and ask curious questions.
Designed to create spiritual moments throughout the day, the practices invite healthful and heartful connections to self and others. For instance, on “Wonder-filled Wednesdays” exercises encourage readers to stop and contemplate the brilliance of life all around them. On “Seva Saturdays,” readers are given ideas for practicing selflessness. Each day readers chooses from a range of activities to try out including forest bathing, cat grazing, yawning, looking at art, or mindfully connecting with their community.
