While this strategy can be effective in the short run, he says it ultimately risks instilling hopelessness and spiritual constriction. The Spirits Terrain offers an alternative: blending the worlds of Deepak Chopra and Ralph Nader, it explains how to access deep components of creativity, such as intuition, conscious and unconscious visualization, creative discomfort, and true compassion, and shows us how to use these components to visualize and reach our highest goals. With exercises, meditations, and stories of ordinary people leading remarkable lives, The Spirits Terrain is a book for activists and organizations seeking new inspiration and for anyone interested in spiritual growth.
