Endorsements for The Journey Within
In an era where global religion is rapidly evolving, people of faith have been faced with two choices: either to plant their feet firmly in the ground of their own tradition or to turn their ear to the gentle breeze of the Spirit, allowing themselves to be moved with curiosity into new, unexplored terrains and territories. Those who harken to the untamable winds of the Spirit may be led into traditions, beliefs, and practices that seem foreign to them at first, but upon deeper examination, reveal unexpected glimpses of God’s majesty. Allison Brown’s book The Journey Within offers a constructive and informative guide into exploring the spiritual practices and disciplines of many of the world’s great spiritual traditions from a robustly Christian perspective. If you are looking to begin exploring new ways to manifest faith and connect with the Divine, The Journey Within is an essential starting point, and Allison Brown is an incredible guide. Her wit, wisdom, and insight will be a blessing to everyone brave enough to dive into this journey with her.

In The Journey Within, Dr. Allison Brown presents her struggles with reconciling her Christian upbringing and beliefs with her inner knowingness about Truth and Love. Her presentation of the Bible and Christian ideas, and how they align with New Age practices and modalities will help seekers make sense of everything from Reiki to yoga and open up reflections that empower them to make their own determination about what makes sense on their spiritual journey.

Allison Brown has done a masterful job of gently and lovingly guiding Christians to learn about topics which have heretofore been off-limits due to unfounded fears and lack of accurate information. This well-researched, easy to read book is an outstanding primer that takes the fear out of non-traditional spiritual practices. The Journey Within holds the potential to encourage readers to conduct their own deeper investigation of those practices which pique their interest. Bravo to Dr. Brown for having the courage to show her fellow Christians that rather than being off-limits, the practices she demystifies here hold great potential for their soul’s growth.

We are living in an extraordinary time of Awakening. Many of our Christian brothers and sisters, and those whom have been profoundly influenced by Christian symbolism, culture and tradition, are looking for guidance to non-traditional spiritual practices. Dr. Allison Brown has, with the heart-felt book “The Journey Within,” provided readers with a pragmatic overview and clear definitions of the current landscape of these alternative offerings. In addition, by including her relevant and touching personal stories and experiences to the tableau, it invites the reader to view her journey and expanded perspective of God. An amazing book and welcome addition to anyone’s spiritual library.

Here is a book that speaks to a thousand hungry minds! I wish I’d had this resource as I struggled to fit my dawning self-realization into the framework of my Catholic upbringing. Like fledging from the nest of a loving parent to find one’s own wings, so many are conflicted by a devotion and love for the Church, and the compelling need to seek a personal relationship with God. Allison Brown offers a handbook that understands this inner struggle and proposes several ways for the reader to defuse the conflict. Her sensitive approach helps us find balance and the confidence to pursue further study. Her words empower us to seek our individual Truths within the traditions we’ve held dear, and encourage us to explore outside of those traditions, always safe in the knowledge that in seeking God we can never go astray.
