Calling Our Spirits Home Book Review


 
Okay, I really went off the deep end when I reviewed this book. What I mean is, this is something I normally don't do and in my quest to broaden my mind, I have read books that are beyond what I do. In this book, Calling Our Spirits Home written by Carla Woody, I have read a book so far beyond me, I am not sure if I can adequately describe this book.
 
Hopefully, this synopsis will help you understand this book:
As people increasingly search for something more in our times, awakening toward spiritual consciousness has become prevalent. In the sparking, seekers often find themselves in the middle of something that turns their lives upside down with few people to turn toward for guidance through an often ecstatic, albeit confusing maze of possibilities.  
This book provides a look at the process that typically emerges in that unfolding. Uniquely blending real-life examples, storytelling, mythology, world spiritual traditions and transformational modalities, it provides insights and tools for every phase of the journey.

The author donates 10% of profits from book sales to Kenosis Spirit Keepers, a 501(c)3 nonprofit she founded whose mission is to help preserve Native traditions in danger of decimation.
This book was given to me thru a very dear friend of mine who is related to Carla Woody and we both read this book and I have to admit my friend understood it far better than I did. As you all know, I am a thriller kind of book reader and this book delves deeper into things that bring to mind sitting in a college class and listening to professors talk about the past and philosophy.

So, I had to get my friend to give me a breakdown of what she thought the book was aiming for and then when I read what she wrote, it all sort of fell into place. This is a book for the person who loves to delve deeper into the human spirit and ask all the why questions.

This book raises some serious questions that only you can seek and answer so I decided that this is one of those books that I can't tell you what to do or what it means. It will have a different meaning for each person. If you are a spiritual person, I would recommend this book so that you can form your own opinion and hopefully in the process, it will help lead you to your purpose in this world and answer all of your "why" questions.

Calling Our Spirits Home is a beautiful spirit song that gently gathers the dis-integrated, frightened parts of ourselves into the warm unconditionally loving wholeness of a mother s embrace - a celebration of life, mysticism and magic emerging as a blossom from the consciousness of humanity after centuries of growing beneath the compost of an unbalanced, materialist world. --Matthew Pallamary, Author of Land Without Evil
