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 seeking independence from the secure confines of traditional religious doctrine by detailing his own courageous journey."
"The prospect of relinquishing codified church dogma and community to travel an uncharted, unconventional path can be daunting. In his latest book, Dispenza (founder, LifePath Retreats; The Way of the Traveler) offers encouragement to all those seeking independence from the secure confines of traditional religious doctrine by detailing his own courageous journey. Through thoughtful reflection, he relates the crisis of faith he experienced as a young monk in the Roman Catholic Church, which manifested itself in the inability to reconcile his emerging beliefs with the rigid tenets of catechism. Taking enormously uncertain steps, he left the faith in search of more experiential alternatives that would grant him a more fulfilling relationship with his 'Source' (or God). The resulting narrative richly illustrates both the challenges and the rewards of embarking on such a journey and 'provides a wealth of relevant discussion material and welcome support for anyone contemplating this course.' This 'survival guide' by someone further along 'the road less traveled' is appropriate for public and academic libraries, especially those with traditional and alternative spirituality collections." (Library Journal, 2006)
