I'm not a yogi from the Himalayas, a preacher from the pulpit, or a guru with dollar signs in my eyes," says Chris Grosso. "The truth is, as a result of years of heavy drug and alcohol addiction, I've been to some extremely dark places that resulted in a literal life-or-death search for something more." With Everything Mind, this emerging voice of the spiritual countercul ...more

Everything Mind (God, Spirit, Being, Isness) by Chris Gross who recommends highly The Last Night of Earth Poems by Charles Bukowski.

What I admire most about this book are the well-crafted spiritual practicums. The Centering Prayer from the work of Father Thomas Keating is one I am doing.
