Is spiritual hunger a human instinct?
Do we suffer if this essential need is neglected?
What are the common but often unrecognizable symptoms?
How do we find spiritual nurture in our post-modern environment?
"The God instinct is as basic and necessary to human existence as the survival instinct. I am saying, from personal and professional experience, that consistent neglect of this basic and central human need is dangerous and often destructive. It can and will cause a variety of symptoms that can include addiction (of all kinds), depression, greed, anxiety, obesity and a deep and pervasive cynicism about self and life." Dr. Anderson
"There is no getting ready other than grace Weep and then smile. Don't pretend to know something you haven't experienced.........Very little grows on jagged rock. Be ground. Be crumbled, so wildflowers will come up where you are. You've been stony for too many years. Try something different. Surrender." Rumi
Join Dr. Anderson as he shares his provocative insights about the devastating effects of spiritual deprivation and makes pragmatic and inspirational suggestions for surviving and thriving in a spiritually deprived society.
