Joseph Dispenza (San Miguel De Allende, Mexico) lived monastic life for eight years, studying religion and spirituality first-hand in the order of the Congregation of Holy Cross (CSC). After he left monastic life, he worked for social change with a number of humanitarian organizations, including the Center for Social Communications in New York and the Institute for Environmental Response in Toronto. He is the author of Live Better Longer, published by HarperCollins in 1997 and The Way of the Traveler, published (second edition) by Avalon in 2002. He has written on spirituality and natural self-healing in magazines, newspapers, and websites, including Alternative Medicine, American Way, Free Spirit, Magical Blend, Massage Magazine, NewTopia.com, Spirituality and Health, Whole Life Times, and To Your Health, and Beliefnet.com. He is the founder of LifePath Retreats (a guided retreat that leads participants through a dynamic process of moving through obstacles in order to answer the call of living their best life).
"Dispenza … offers encouragement to all those seekingindependence from the secure confines of traditional religiousdoctrine by detailing his own courageous journey."
"The prospect of relinquishing codified church dogma and communityto travel an uncharted, unconventional path can be daunting. In hislatest book, Dispenza (founder, LifePath Retreats; The Way of theTraveler) offers encouragement to all those seeking independencefrom the secure confines of traditional religious doctrine bydetailing his own courageous journey. Through thoughtfulreflection, he relates the crisis of faith he experienced as ayoung monk in the Roman Catholic Church, which manifested itself inthe inability to reconcile his emerging beliefs with the rigidtenets of catechism. Taking enormously uncertain steps, he left thefaith in search of more experiential alternatives that would granthim a more fulfilling relationship with his 'Source' (or God). Theresulting narrative richly illustrates both the challenges and therewards of embarking on such a journey and 'provides a wealth ofrelevant discussion material and welcome support for anyonecontemplating this course.' This 'survival guide' by someonefurther along 'the road less traveled' is appropriate for publicand academic libraries, especially those with traditional andalternative spirituality collections." (Library Journal,2006)
