These days it seems that more and more people seek a satisfaction in their lives that goes beyond having a successful career, a comfortable lifestyle, and access to the latest high-tech gadgets and conveniences. For the answers they can’t find anywhere else, they look to the spiritual world. But most have never been touched by an angel, and few have the patience for sweat lodges, the stamina to climb the Himalayas, or the fashion sense to wear crystals. It’s one thing to draw inspiration from the books in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, but quite another to become a spiritual person through one’s own deeds.
For these interested yet wary people comes the perfectly accessible program of 30 Days to a More Spiritual Life. This simple guidebook is designed to help readers find personal, comprehensible ways to tap into their spirituality in every aspect of daily life. Growing closer to God (or whatever Higher Power) means communicating not only through prayer and meditation but also through understanding and appreciating one’s self and one’s world. 30 Days to a More Spiritual Life guides readers toward creating holy moments in the day and discovering their spiritual sides in interactions with others, in conducting business, and even in expressing love.
Based on Shana Aborn’s very popular article on the same subject for Ladies’ Home Journal, 30 Days will incorporate personal anecdotes from the men and women who have benefited from the 30 Day program. This plan will have people of all faiths, backgrounds, and experiences on the road to serenity, greater well-being, and renewed sense of purpose right from the first page.

"You’re not going to find ultimate enlightenment in just one meditation session or, for that matter, in a hundred. The point isn’t to become perfect or more ‘religious’–it’s to increase your awareness of yourself as a spiritual being and, I hope, to bring you closer to your concept of God. You may not feel utterly transformed, but chances are you’ll at least feel more peaceful, less stressed and eager to continue exploring your spiritual path." — From the Introduction
