The Courage to Surrender: Eight Contradictions on The Spiritual Path

by Tommy Hellsten —

This is an inspirational guide to embracing the wisdom of contradiction on the road to recovery, personal growth and spiritual development. In this translation by Timo Luhtanen, Hellstein offers words of wisdom for difficult times, explores powerful, though seemingly paradoxical, spiritual lessons on the path to self-discovery and encourages readers to take the most indirect path to resolution.

He says the road to self-discovery is paved with contradictions: to find inner peace, we must face our fears; to be with others, we must accept ourselves; to reach our destination, we must first lose our way; and that it is only by healing the wounds of our past that we evolve, grow and become who we are meant to be.

Blending Judeo-Christian spirituality, the 12 steps and modern psychology, and drawing from his profound struggles and eperiences, Hellsten shows us that by embracing these truths we can achieve a deeper more fulfilling appreciation of life itself.
