Finding Heaven Here by John C Robinson offers the equivalent of a home study course in mysticism.
Dr John Robinson holds two doctorates as an American interfaith minister and as a psychologist and in this book, he explains very simply, the complex subject of finding Heaven here on Earth. This is the place where psychology meets spirituality. The book allows the reader to touch what feels like the spiritual realms, if only for a moment. Heaven is a state of mind, and if we can spend time in this beautiful place, the trappings of the modern commercial world fade into the distance and are replaced with peace, contentment and appreciation.
Dr Robinson provides the reader with dozens of spiritual exercises that help to clear away the obstacles that prevent us from experiencing the wonder of life and the presence of the Divine. He answers common questions at the end of the book which help to clarify how we can improve the quality of our life by spending time meditating on the higher realms of consciousness. Dr Robinson has written several books on allied subjects. He facilitates conferences, workshops and retreats in the US and is especially interested teaching within the men’s movement. His next book will focus on the spirituality of ageing. .
