Are you struggling with organized religion? Have you left a church or organization and are still seeking a way to feed your soul? Caer explores a new spirituality with Dr. Steve McSwain, author of The Enoch Factor: The Sacred Art of Knowing God, and Dr. Stewart Bitkoff, author of A Commuter's Guide to Enlightenment and the new book Sufism for the Western Seeker. Topics in this engaging hour include: What drew Steve McSwain to be a Baptist minister for 20 years, and the events that made him leave the church; feelings of anger and life unraveling; Stewart Bitkoff's feeling of emptiness in his family's tradition of Judaism; how they found their spiritual awakening; making life a prayer; moving beyond the trappings of religion; the figure of Enoch; his presence in Jewish, Christian Islamic texts; how churches have come to mimic material culture, rather than model spiritual values; fear and reward; the difference between religion and spirituality; the form spiritual living will take; the effect of mysticism on religious tolerance; Caer's Commentary on Viktor Frankl; and more.
