The Guru Question: The Perils and Rewards of Choosing a Spiritual Teacher (New)
by Caplan, Mariana
Publisher: Sounds True
Book ID: 9781604070736, 1604070730
Usually available in 3-5 days
The spiritual journey is perhaps the most personal experience of our lives-but does that mean we have to go it alone? With The Guru Question, award-winning author Mariana Caplan presents a unique and much-needed guide for anyone considering whether they need a dedicated mentor to help illuminate the path to awakening-and, if so, how to find a teacher worthy of their trust and devotion.
Drawing upon her knowledge as both a scholar of mysticism and lifelong practitioner of spiritual traditions, Caplan delivers a candid, practical, and daringly personal examination of the student-teacher dynamic, featuring:
- Are you ready to be a student? If and when you should consider making a commitment to a spiritual teacher
- The path of the conscious learner-how to retain your power and autonomy while accepting a mentor's authority
- Spiritual scandals and predatory gurus-tips for avoiding the inherent pitfalls in the student-teacher relationship
- The true source of power-how to recognize the inner light of divinity as it manifests in the imperfect human guise of your teacher and yourself
In a culture where a distrust of authority is considered a healthy trait, we tend to be justifiably suspicious of gurus and spiritual leaders. With The Guru Question, Mariana Caplan helps readers develop the discernment that is crucial when seeking a teacher-and reveals the immeasurable rewards that can come from having a trustworthy guide on the spiritual path.

The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
