AuthorHouse, 2004 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 156 pages
Mystic In a Traffic Jam reflects on the current task at hand for spiritual seekers of all types. Based on a practical philosophy for living in the modern world, this book addresses both the vertical path of spiritual awakening and the horizontal path of relationship and psychological development. Woven throughout the text is the imperative theme of personal autonomy, work with the unconscious mind, and practical action in the world as a requisite for true and lasting spiritual growth. Touching on a broad range topics, from new paradigms in relationship to the long-term impact of 9/11; from an invitation to the return of the Divine Feminine to discernment about spiritual teachers; from the use of prayer in a traffic jam to right action in the world, readers will find tidbits for living a meaningful life in our modern day world. Practical in its scope but filled with new twists, this book is imperative reading for spiritual seekers of all types. Are you disillusioned with the dogma of traditional religion? Are you a spiritual seeker who wishes to live practically in the world? Are you a practical person looking for more meaning in your life? This book provides thoughtful responses to the dilemmas of modern day life and shines new light on the age-old challenge of meaningful living. From maintaining successful relationships to managing guilt, each succinct chapter provides a tidbit for good living in modern world. Practical mysticism combines the work of transforming the personality and living joyfully in the body, with the path of diving into the ocean of the Divine. If you have been seeking a spiritual philosophy of life that is down to earth and practical, you will find some thought-provoking ideas throughout this text. Drawing on the best of the ancient traditions, Dr. Prinzivalli weaves the traditions of Kabbalah, Sufism, the Course in Miracles, the Gnostic Gospels and the eastern paths into an eclectic approach to living as an awakened being in the third millennium. "This is a remarkable book and we are very please to strongly recommend it to the reading public. The author tackles the issue that so many of us are trying to solve. How does one live a spiritual life in a very busy and very harassed technological society? Dr. Prinzivalli has a very extensive background as a therapist and as a spiritual teacher and what she writes comes out of her own experience in working with these profound opposites. It is beautifully written and cannot help but support the life and work of anyone doing psychospiritual work of any kind. Hal Stone, PhD and Sidra Stone, PhD Albion, California September, 2003
