Banyen's Description: 

This powerfully personal story recounts the extraordinary forces that introduced David Spangler to the spiritual realm, and “showed him around.” This fascinating read will gently revise many favorite illusions of what the spiritual life is all about.

David Spangler has always had an intuitive understanding that our physical world is only one small part of the universe. For as long as he can remember, this visionary and spiritual teacher has been psychically aware of a spiritual world existing alongside the physical one.

In 1965, when he was studying biochemistry, Spangler chose to leave college and follow an inner spiritual calling. Soon after, he encountered an extraordinary presence, which he named “John,” and which over the next quarter-century would be his colleague and mentor, assisting him in exploring the “inner worlds” of the spirit. No ordinary teacher, John was Spangler’s guide to comprehending the sacredness within us, and he helped build partnerships with the spiritual worlds. John tutored him in some of the most basic mysteries of life and the nature of the human spirit.

In Apprenticed to Spirit, Spangler recounts how John showed him the way to develop a spiritual intelligence—what Spangler calls “a mind of the soul”—and to integrate it into everyday life. Such a development, John said, is important for enhancing a person’s creativity and bringing his spiritual energy into focus.  

This book is the absorbing memoir—generously sprinkled with guidance of the highest order—of one man's journey to understanding how we can learn to lead lives of greater blessing and to be sources of blessing and service for the world as a whole.

Among David Spangler’s other books are The Laws of Manifestation, Incarnational Spirituality, and The Subtle Worlds. A pioneer of the Findhorn community, he is now director of the Lorian Center for Incarnational Spirituality, where he offers teachings online: www.lorian.org.
