Quick take: I review spiritual/metaphysical novels on this site. I also research and write about the connection between neuroscience, psychology, spirituality and enlightenment. I’m a writer, dancer, and yoga addict.
Me: I read every novel I can get my hands on, with a slight list toward science fiction, mysteries, and literature. However, the books that really excite me, the ones that keep me awake until 3 a.m., are novels with strong spiritual/metaphysical themes. And give me a book that also features a great story and engaging characters, I’ll read until the book falls from my numb, cramped hands.
But great spiritual/metaphysical/visionary novels—or even mediocre ones—are so hard to find! Most spiritual readers have heard of classic novels such as:
- Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman
- Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Illusions, and other books by Richard Bach
- The Star Rover by Jack London (bet you never heard of this one, but it’s a great read)
- The Alchemist and other books by Paulo Coelho
- The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield
Surely there are more great spiritual/metaphysical novels out there, just waiting to be discovered and shared with seekers like you and me. I want a book that grips my emotions as it awakens my spirit. Is that too much to ask for? I think not.
My mission: Find spiritual/metaphysical novels, write reviews of the good ones, and share those books as widely as possible. I hope others will recommend books, write reviews, and submit books for review, and together we can create a network to share fiction that feeds the spirit.
