Banyen's Description: 

How I Found God in Everyone and Everywhere captures for a general audience the spiritual shift away from a God “up there” and "out there" and towards an immanent Divine that exists right here, all around us, within everything—including ourselves. This particular vision of Divine immanence, called “panentheism,” is serving as a spiritual path for a g rowing number of seekers. Panentheism is entirely compatible with modern science, particularly contemporary astrophysics. It postulates an interconnected cosmos in which each of its parts exist only in relationship to the other parts. Strains of panentheism can be found in every major religion.

A deeply immanent and participatory conception of the God-world relationship can vastly reorient one’s spiritual journey, transforming how one experiences the world. As these diverse spiritual memoirs testify, for many people today, the spiritual and intellectual journey has led to the discovery a divine reality that, it turns out, we already inhabit, and that encompasses us all. This relationsl God—whether you want to call it “panentheism” or not—is the spiritual heartbeat found in the following pages. This heartbeat is not found in some people and some places, but in everyone and everywhere…

 

Often it takes encountering the journey of another to help continue our own. The best journeys, after all, are those that are shared.

 The book is built around the personal journeys of a close-knit group of prominent contributors. Contributors include Deepak Chopra, Ilia Delio, Keith Ward, Richard Rohr, Rupert Sheldrake, Matthew Fox, Cynthia Bourgeault, and others.

“Such rich stories, such clear, insightful, and at times tender writing, with common themes arising spontaneously and enriching one another.” —Brian McLaren, author of The Great Spiritual Migration
