Writer, mystic, and father of four, David Spangler understands that the birth of a child is a spiritually significant event--a mystical experience. There is a feeling of magic in the parent/child relationship that relies on intuition, total presence, and impulses that come from the soul. The acclaimed author of The Call shares his stories from the trenches, blessings from the day-in and day-out of child-rearing, and encourages us, with grace, wit and common sense, toward the kind of parenting that brings to the world creative, honest, enlightened, and independent kids.
David Spangler has been writing, lecturing, and teaching since the early seventies, when he was codirector of the spiritual community of Findhorn in northern Scotland. He is the author of Revelation: The Birth of a New Age; Emergence: The Rebirth of the Sacred; Everyday Miracles; A Pilgrim in Aquarius; The Call; Parent as Mystic, Mystic as Parent, and most recently Blessing. He also co-authored Reimagination of the World with William Irwin Thompson. Spangler lives in Washington, near Seattle.
