Tom Harpur shows how ancient wisdoms, together with exciting new scientific findings, are combining to show why mere coping techniques are not enough for meeting the stress crisis. Central to a spiritual response to stress is the practice of spiritual meditation in its various forms.

More than that, it is a revitalising gift, which the church can reclaim for its own sake, and offer the outside church who are seeking identity, meaning and purpose. Quantity Available: 1.
