Best Spirituality Book for Depression: Adventures in Consciousness by Debianne De Rose
Can this book help me overcome depression?
Possibly. It’s a short memoir about meditation and alternate states of awareness.
Does it address depression specifically?
What is it about?
Here’s the book description from Amazon:
Astral-tourism at its finest! Take a vicarious journey with the author to alternate dimensions where healing, personal epiphanies, past-life jaunts, visits with “dead” loved ones, and kick-ass higher guidance abound.
When it comes to consciousness, we normally assume there are but a few options: ordinary waking consciousness, sleep, unconsciousness such as in a coma state, and perhaps the subconscious as accessed during hypnosis. Yet, there is more, so much more, to explore! Travel vicariously with the author to the unique and wonderful Monroe Institute in Virginia, where powerful sound technology and well-crafted week-long meditation programs facilitate personal healing and revelations about the very nature of our existence. Colorful, detailed depictions bring these alternate states of consciousness and the Institute and its participants right into your favorite reading room.
To what degree do you think it can help me overcome depression?
I haven’t read it … yet. When I do, I will update this section.
Where can I find out more about this book?
Finally, it happened. After ten years thinking about it, I attempted, as the Apostle Paul once wrote, to “pray without ceasing”–to communicate in an ongoing way with the Divine.
