Traditional spiritual models are giving seekers the wrong impression about spiritual enlightenment – and it’s creating a lot of pain and frustration. This breakthrough book offers a remedy to folks who are:

  • Convinced they don’t have “the right stuff” to achieve enlightenment in this lifetime…
  • Disillusioned by spiritual teachers who don’t live up to their lofty self-portraits…
  • Worried that choosing a spiritual life means leaving their everyday life behind…
  • Hungry for a different way to be, but unable to express it…

That’s why Dr. Robert Forman has written his revolutionary bookEnlightenment Ain’t All It’s Cracked Up To Be: A Journey of Discovery, Snow and Jazz in the Soul. Told in often poetic prose, it offers new direction for people looking for a sane and healthy spiritual pathway in our increasingly confusing world.

Enlightenment aint hi res

By exploring his own 39 year experience of spiritual enlightenment, Dr. Forman shows that it’s indeed possible to create harmony between real life and spirit. He describes the necessity of “embracing the human messiness” that is either ignored or outright rejected by most spiritual traditions.

Forman’s book invites the reader to be honest about their spiritual goals and to consider a radically different yet more productive approach. Through metaphor, humor, vulnerability and achingly beautiful prose, this unique work offers newfound hope to spiritual seekers everywhere.
