57 scholars have contributed their personal accounts of spiritual awakening to a new book, edited by Marjorie Woollacott, Ph.D., and David Lorimer. Professor Woollacott, who had a life-changing spiritual experience during a meditation retreat, shares in the book how she struggled to reconcile her scientific and spiritual pursuits, a dilemma shared by many of her colleagues who kept their spiritual side private due to fear of losing credibility in their scientific fields.
The essays in the book are a rich and diverse collection of personal insights into the transformative power of spiritual awakening in the lives of scientists and academics. The scholars openly share their own spiritual journeys and the challenges they faced in reconciling their experiences with their professional lives. Their reflections on the changes in their values, beliefs, and perspectives on life are deeply moving and demonstrate a profound connection not only with humanity, but with the earth and cosmos. The book is available for purchase on Amazon.
