Drawing on my own personal journey into the inner worlds as well as my relational work with others as a therapist and guide, I wrote the book with the intention that it serve as a fiery, alive, compassionate invitation to re-envision and re-enchant our ideas about healing and spiritual awakening in the modern world.
Weaving together the wisdom streams of contemplative spirituality, relational and somatic psychotherapy, and the poetic imagination, The Path Is Everywhere reminds us that the doorway into the aliveness we long for is found in the chaotic glory of our lives as they are - buried inside our confusion, hopelessness, disappointment, and doubt - hidden in the most "ordinary" parts of our bodies, emotions, relationships, and the natural world itself.
As we learn to attune to the wisdom, compassion, and creativity that is wired into our true nature, our perception is cleansed and a portal opens, revealing a freedom, spontaneity, and rest that is always already here. Somehow the struggle begins to fall away and despite the traumas of the past, the worries of the future, and even the intensity in the present, we are alive, we are fully here, and our hearts are open to the magic of the sacred world.
Many have grown weary from a long search, tired from an endless quest for self-improvement, holding it all together, healing all their wounds, staying unflinchingly in the present moment, never failing, perfecting themselves, and completing some sort of mythical spiritual journey. You are invited to rest now. And re-imagine the purpose of your life, what you are doing here, and re-commit what is most important to you.
What you are is not a project to be solved, but a mystery to be lived. Welcome home. For it is from the ground of the home of your true nature that you will be able to truly be there for others, to hold and help them, and to be vulnerable, open, tender, and courageous in a world that needs you now more than ever.
