“The Priest Who Left His Religion” In Pursuit of Cosmic Spirituality
By John Shields

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.

John will be in Calgary and Edmonton attending the Body Soul Spirit Expo 23rd – 25th Sept and Calgary Sept 30th – Oct 2nd, where he will be available for book signings and giving guest
lectures at the Expos.

Tikkun olam (from the Hebrew: תיקון עולם‎) means “repairing the world”, “healing the world”. This concept originated in the early rabbinic period, when was seen mainly as G*d repairing the world from evil. The concept evolved over time: it was given new meanings in the kabbalah of the medieval period and in modern Judaism, been seen more and more as social activism and personal development (cultivated to lead by example towards a better world). Currently, wise people are seeing contributing to tikkun olam, and not only being spectators of the Divine actions.
