I don’t care how special your personal philosophy is, if you can’t write you spiritualis write. You bet… and David talks about his personal experiences with them, noting particularly how they led to his meeting Ram Dass, Krishna Das and more for the first time. Very grateful for his contributions.

It is an accessible spiritual book for both youth and those who are young at heart. Chris indue very humble and self-effacing but he should be very proud of this book.


I love how brutally honest he is, not covering it up with bullshit to make it seem like it was better than what it was. The series tracks Jonas as he travels across the country in search for people whose lives are forever changed by breakdown and breakthrough experiences.

About | The Indie Spiritualist

Next thing that bugged me was that through out the whole book he tried to portrait himself as humble and ego-free yet he was dropping names of the artists and other influential people who he had a chance to work with, to impress his spirritualist.

A digital copy of this book was provided by the publisher through NetGalley for purposes of review.

In that case, this book will seem like an adequate introduction to contemporary spirituality written by a Brad Warner wannabe. Im 70 and I really enjoyed this book about Chris coming back from the edge and turning his life around and still staying himself.

Nov 10, Sharon rated it it was amazing Shelves: She also shares about the time she tried to describe to Krishna Das and his response. She and her husband Saci own Equal Vision Records.

My gratitude goes out to them as well as Chino Moreno for taking the time to do the interview! The only thing that kinda bugged me was the self-promotion of the author’s various projects.

I think this is one of those books that you either speaks to you or just doesn’t. I enjoyed this book for its honesty and giving a name to the spirituality I have practiced for years.

His journey was a cycle of detention, detox, rehab, release, suffering and repeat on a path littered with some scary, dark places.
