Long Journey Home: A Guide to Your Search for the Meaning of Life (Paperback)
Have you woken up to the journey of life? Have you reached a point where you long for "something more"? Have the things you have striven to achieve turned out to be far less than enough? Do you desire to unriddle life's mystery and pursue a life rich with significance?
Long Journey Home is a seeker's road map to the quest for meaning. Rich in stories and profoundly personal as well as practical, it explores the great philosophies of life and charts the road toward meaning taken by countless thoughtful seekers over the centuries. Written for those who care and those who are open, "it assumes no faith in the reader, only the recognition that the humanness of life as a journey is something we should all care about enough to seek to make sense of it and to make up our minds for ourselves."
