IMG_0999At the recent launch party for my new  book, IS: Your Authentic Spirituality Unleashed just published by Hay House (2013), we played a thought-provoking  game to unleash authentic spirituality real time. Guests were invited to answer 3 of life’s biggest questions with the potential to win a prize: What’s the Meaning of Life? What Does Spirituality Mean to You? And What is Love?

So who took home the goods? Technically, Keith, Stacey and Billie– but it could’ve been anyone. Random selection made the point that, when it comes to authentic spirituality, what rings true is what IS true.

Much respect, party people.

You’re invited to peruse a sampling of the insights that poured forth that night below. Don’t forget to add an answer of your own. And perhaps you agree that no response, however right it may feel in the moment, is set in stone.
