Come with Marvin J. Spiegelman on a fascinating journey to capture the Divine WABA. WABA is Spiegelman’s acronym for “Within, Among, Between, and Around,” a framework for understanding how our religious traditions connect with the divine. This book serves a twofold purpose- to help you find your own spiritual path and to discover the territory within the psyche that is the common ground of all spiritual traditions. You’ll explore the inner paths of Zen Buddhism, Hinduism, and the kabbalah; the communal path of the Islamic pilgrimage; the mutual processes of alchemy and Jungian psychology; and the numinous that surrounds us in nature, art and synchronistic experiences. You’ll also travel the Catholic path of the rosary; learn how the women of ancient Rome were initiated into the mysteries; explore the shamanic path; and read about how people from specific religious backgrounds are having ecumenical experiences leading them to unique expressions of their personal myths. By looking at all forms of religious expression, their origins in the psyche, and the transformations that the religious instinct can bring you through, you can more clearly see your own path and unfold your personal myth.
