I've been a Sounds True customer and sincere spiritual practitioner for decades. I never expected to find myself going through a major and long dark night of the soul, now into its third year, as I contend with the decline of an aging parent and all the unexpected shadows that have been kicked up. I found this book to be very realistic, respectful, and helpful. Thanks Tami, and thanks to all of the contributors for compiling this thoughtful collection of writing that gets to the heart of the matter. I found it to be very helpful and encouraging.
