Follow the story of an ordained Catholic Priest who, with courage and self-compassion, shares his arduous struggle to make the shift from religion to spirituality.
Shields enters life as a Layman at the age of 31 with $30 in his pocket, but quickly adapts to his new life and becomes a leader of the Canadian labour movement. During the most intense crisis of his career, he uncovered an inner mythology operating in his subconscious, which intensified his search for spirituality and higher consciousness.
As he examines his own life, John tells how the findings of science convinced him that spirituality is rooted in the universe. He shows us a sentient cosmos where everything is interlinked, conscious and purposeful. Inspired by the science that confirms the foundation of his present spirituality, Shields leads the reader to welcome the union between science and spirit.
