Banyen's Description: 

A little snarky, a little sweet, Sarah Bowen proposes a G*d-optional approach to spirituality that is alive, flexible, and positively addictive.

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.

Rather than relying on adherence to a specific belief system, Spiritual Rebel encourages readers to clarify the beliefs that are personally meaningful, redefine outdated concepts, mix-and-match practices, experience connection, and ask curious questions. What if the Force seems more real to you than Jesus? What if your higher power appears in fluorescent orange with a loud thumping beat? Can Siri help us find something G*d-ish?

Approaching spirituality from an edgy, vivid, and interfaith/interspiritual perspective, Sarah Bowen explores the world’s philosophical, scientific, and religious traditions, mining them for juicy tidbits and practices. Drawing from wide, weird, and deep, Sarah Bowen is a bookworm who can’t stop reading, an unrelenting researcher, and an inspiring spiritual tour guide. As a result, Spiritual Rebel contains a diverse collection of practices and resources to inspire the Force within you, by whatever name you call it.
