Product Details

Praise

“Highly recommended. Goldstein harmoniously blends teachings from the Hebrew Bible, Hasidism, secular contemporary thinkers, and from his own training in the martial arts and his experience as a rabbi.”—Association of Jewish Libraries

“Goldstein’s work offers a strong counterbalance to so much of the current teaching that seems to imply that thinking ‘good thoughts’ and ‘visualizing’ can guarantee a life of ease and plenty.”—Spirituality & Health


“In this compelling book, Goldstein provides a step-by-step program for contemporary searchers to become spiritual warriors.”—Spirituality & Practice


“A guy who can discuss Jewish mysticism, boxing, and the Central Asian nations he has visited can make some distinctive and unique connections others wouldn’t see.”—PublishersWeekly.com


“Rabbi Goldstein shows us, through examples from his own spiritual journey, how to harmonize the fine-tuned disciplines of the martial arts with a profound and transformative Judaism grounded in its mystical teachings. Any person who seeks to transform and empower him/herself in response to the call of their soul will find Rabbi Goldstein an insightful guide and a compassionate companion.”—Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, author of Credo of a Modern Kabbalist

“Niles Goldstein makes faith an adventure—which is the only kind of trip worth taking.”—Douglas Rushkoff, author of Nothing Sacred and Life Inc.

“Goldstein’s writing style, down-to-earth and jovially conversational, is a pleasure to read.”—myjewishlearning.com
