  • Gifts of the Camino, by Deborah Terra Weltman

“I crossed the Pyrenees on foot, up and over incredibly rocky terrain, in higher altitudes than I’d ever been, and made it, exhausted, into Spain. What followed was a series of life lessons on the topic of trust. As it turned out, I was on the Camino to learn about trusting myself, trusting others, trusting that I would always be provided for, and in general, trusting God.”

  • Adversity and the Movements of the Soul, by Mark A. Cameron, PhD, MA

“Jung once described God as ‘the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which upset my subjective views, plans and intentions and change the course of my life.’ I soon came to know this aspect of God intimately. Eventually, I would come to see the sly plan which God had placed into motion through this period of suffering.”

  • Healing Through the Numinous, by Leah Friedman, PhD

“Recently, to my great surprise, I was visited by a mystifying, life-altering shift of consciousness. As I pondered what had happened, which I shall describe later, I thought about the meaning of the word numinous and realized that this was not the first time I had encountered numinosity.”
