In the CST Toolbox this month, “Paths to Spiritual Depth: Insights from Leaders of our Age,” Ph.D. student and alumnus Andrew Davis, M.A. ’13, identifies five spiritual lessons for the road ahead that he’s gleaned from the contributors to the forthcoming book, How I Found God in Everyone and Everywhere: An Anthology of Spiritual Memoirs, which he edited with Dr. Philip Clayton.

Andrew says, “The spiritual journey is interior, but it’s not meant to be walked alone. Perhaps no other journey is worthy of sharing quite like that of the spiritual journey – those interior windings of the heart, mind, and spirit. There is a deep sense in which the spiritual journey includes all others in a unique and formative way.”

Some of the spiritual leaders from whom Andrew gathered these lessons for the road ahead include our very own John Cobb, Marjorie Suchocki, and Philip Clayton, as well as such notable leaders as Deepak Chopra, Richard Rohr, Matthew Fox, Rupert Sheldrake, Cynthia Bourgeault, Ilia Delio, Keith Ward, Loriliai Biernacki, and Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson.

Andrew says, “The spiritual terrain these leaders have crossed is vast and their paths are diverse. Nevertheless, one also finds them reflecting each other in significant ways. There are points of resonance between these leaders and guides for those of us also walking the spiritual way.”
