Aug. 14, 2012 - PRLog -- Author Robert Atkinson, a leading authority on helping people tell their life stories and professor of human development and religious studies, has just released his new book, Mystic Journey, Getting to the Heart of Your Soul’s Story. In this book he describes life's greatest adventure: discovering who we are and why we are deeply connected to others through living our lives consciously, which reveals universal motifs and timeless patterns.

Mystic Journey uses a multi-faith approach to reveal the path of the soul. As we explore the deeper story of our soul, we also discover that we are living a lifelong process of “soul-making”, described by women’s movement figure Marion Woodman in her foreword to the book as “allowing the eternal essence to live and experience the outer world through all the senses—seeing, smelling, hearing, tasting, touching—so that the soul grows during its time on Earth. Soul-making is constantly confronting the paradox that an eternal being is dwelling in a temporal body.”

Robert Atkinson adds: “With so many global crises everywhere we look demanding so much of our immediate attention, is this a good time to be thinking about our soul? There never was a better – or more critical – time than right now to take the mystic journey of the soul that leads us into and through the spiral of life!”

Mystic Journey is a fascinating read helping readers better navigate these rapidly changing times while also guiding them to:

• Use their life stories to help solidify their identities,
• Live with an eternal perspective in mind, and
• Reclaim their common spiritual heritage.

Leading figures in the “human potential movement” have endorsed Robert Atkinson’s work, for example:

"Robert Atkinson's new book offers us a thoughtful and thorough guide to a new kind of heroics... This is a rich read." -Gregg Levoy, author of Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life


“In this exquisite exploration of the spiritual craft of soul-making, Robert Atkinson illumines the journey as well as the art and discipline that leads to spiritual transformation. To read this magnificent study is to remember our original birthright and to commit again to following the path that leads us home to who and what we really are.”
—Jean Houston , Ph.D, author of A Mythic Life and The Search for the Beloved
