Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) April 23, 2009
In a time of severe economic stress, many people find their financial problems are compounded by stress, mounting anxiety, and increased conflict at home and the workplace. While recent polls show that fewer people than ever are turning to conventional religion for solace, there remains a great need for practical spiritual guidance on coping with the inner turmoil caused by outer circumstances. Fearless Books (http://www.fearlessbooks.com), a pioneering publisher in the field of spirituality, has responded to this need with a pragmatic and highly accessible e-book that is immediately available online for $4.95.
Shining Through: 5 Spiritual Survival Techniques for Trying Times by noted spiritual writer D. Patrick Miller presents five simple exercises that help people discover and make use of their inner spiritual resources without requiring any particular religious belief. Beautifully illustrated and simply written throughout, Shining Through provides step-by-step instructions for "Climbing the Stone Face of Fear," "Daily Surrender," "Nightly Gratitude," "Forgiving the Unforgivable," and "Calling on Your Inner Wisdom." These exercises are briefly previewed online at http://www.fearlessbooks.com/ShiningThrough.htm.
The techniques presented in Shining Through are drawn from the author's 25+ years of research, personal experience, and acclaimed writing in the field of contemporary spirituality. D. Patrick Miller is the author of A Little Book of Forgiveness and The Book of Practical Faith. He is also the leading chronicler of the modern spiritual teaching known as "A Course in Miracles," which has inspired such popular and influential figures as Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson, Oprah Winfrey, Whole Foods founder John Mackey, and Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Jane Smiley. Miller's book Understanding A Course in Miracles: The History, Message, and Legacy of a Spiritual Path for Today was released last year by Celestial Arts/Ten Speed Press.
Shining Through is a project of Fearless Books' "Sense & Spirituality" program (http://www.fearlessbooks.com/Sense.htm) offering books, free online articles, consultations, and coaching on practical spirituality for individuals, groups, and businesses. "It's no surprise that people continue to turn away from organized religion in these difficult times," comments Miller. "Many of the beliefs and rituals of conventional churches simply don't deliver the insights and inspiration that people really need. I don't consider myself a 'religious' person, but I know for a fact that everyone has inner spiritual resources they can make better use of. Shining Through is intended to be a quick and accessible guide to doing just that, and I've 'field-tested' all the techniques myself."
Fearless Books, "a daring new spirit in publishing since 1997," is also known for providing guidance and constructive criticism to writers worldwide through Fearless Literary Services. The Fearless Publishing Guide (http://www.fearlessbooks.com/PublishingGuide.html) ranks first in Google searches for the term "how to get published" and Fearless founder D.
