Survival Guide for the Soul: How to Flourish Spiritually in a World that Pressures Us to Achieve

Summary

Ken Shigematsu, senior Pastor of Tenth Church in Vancouver, BC, posits that what keeps believers from flourishing in their spiritual lives is a neglect of the inner life of the soul, driven by our ambition to accomplish something big outside ourselves. We live in a society that pressures us to achieve professionally, socially, and through the constant acquisition of material possessions. He offers fresh perspective on how certain spiritual practices help orient our lives so that our souls can flourish in the midst of a demanding, competitive society.
