A POSITIVELY ADDICTIVE GUIDE TO FINDING DEEPER PERSPECTIVE & HIGHER PURPOSE
"A G*d-optional approach to spirituality that draws on ancient wisdom and modern pop culture."
Bringing together insights from a wide range of traditions—from Taoism to Jediism to Yoga to Science—Spiritual Rebel is a personal approach to finding a deeper perspective and higher life purpose. Offering three weeks of unconventional practices--including forest bathing, yawning, hiking, cat-gazing, mindfulness, and sacred crashing to name just a few--this book helps not only seekers, but also agnostics, atheists, and the spiritual-but-not-religious, curate meaningful spiritual moments throughout the day, dipping in without having to commit, never having to fear they might be “doing it wrong.”
“In this modern-day approach, Sarah's wisdom, wit, and knowledge take us on an illuminating journey of discovery. A must-read for anyone seeking to find or deepen their spiritual path.”
Francesco Mastalia, author of Yoga: The Secret of Life
“With a balance of careful scholarship and refreshing irreverence, Spiritual Rebel offers a treasure map to the best of the wisdom traditions, reimagined for a contemporary circle of seekers.””
Mirabai Starr, author of Wild Mercy
“Part interfaith instigator, part spiritual sister, Sarah Bowen will kindly and impishly guide you to the next step of your journey to your own true heart.”
Barbara Becker, blogger allbeingseverywhere.com
“Spiritual Rebel is a fresh and timely take on religion and spirituality, particularly appealing to those who have outgrown more traditional approaches to ‘finding God.’ I highly recommend this for anyone who is exploring new avenues for their spiritual discoveries.”
Dr. Steven Farmer, author of several best-selling books and oracle cards including Animal Spirit Guides and Healing Ancestral Karma

RELIGION // READ FULL BLOG
The more I try to set aside my pre-pubescent Jedi theology, the more it seems to follow me. This happened again recently when I picked up the book In Search of Zarathustra: Across Iran and Central Asia to find the world’s first prophet by Paul Kriwaczek, an Austrian dentist turned BBC journalist. Surprisingly going back into history would propel me out into space not once, but twice...

"That's the most sacrilegious thing I've ever heard you say, Sarah. Seriously rethink that." said my husband. For context, I had just called him from the parking lot of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. However, I had referred to it as The Church of Mary Who Got Knocked Up by God. Growing up Protestant, I never understood "the Mary thing." As someone who likes to chat with God directly—do not pass Go, do not collect 200 bucks on the way—I've consistently had a hard time understanding why there would need to be someone in the middle of that connection. Why a middleman? Or middlewoman in this case? Little did I know I was about to get smacked in the noggin again for my contempt prior to investigation...
