From the Introduction,
"We find, as we look through our viewfinders, the majesty of an oak, the mysteries of a swamp, holiness hiding in the hollow of a cliff. . . We do not feel separate from the forest, the waterways, the mountains as much as we feel kin to them, their conscious cousins who can bring to light what they may need from us in these times of peril and turbulence."


Finding the On-Ramp

The Rise of Spiritual Intelligence and Evolutionary Creativity

A Book of Hours for a Prophetic Age

Jan Phillips’ Book of Hours is a tapestry of threads from the arts, science, sacred texts and her own mystical poetry. It is the story of one woman’s journey from Catholicism to a new cosmology of global communion and co-creation. It is Rumi meets-Teilhard,  Catherine of Siena meets Dorothy Day—a compelling illustration of how spiritual practice leads to heightened creativity leads to inspired evolutionary action. It’s like being picked up by the shirtsleeves and carried to the mountaintop. It doesn’t hurt but the view most certainly changes.

The spiritual path Jan describes is cosmic, multi-faith, and culturally diverse. Infused with vitality and hope, it will dominate the spiritual consciousness of the 21st century.

–Diarmuid O'Murchu, author of Evolutionary Faith

Not since reading Thomas Merton as a young seminarian have I been so deeply impressed by a book on spirituality.

–Michael Morwood, author of Tomorrow's Catholic

Says the publisher: As study after study continues to show, Americans are increasingly becoming unaffiliated with any specific religion. Finding the On Ramp to Your Spiritual Path: A Road Map to Joy and Rejuvenation provides an access point for these individuals who have broken free of traditional religion and are looking to embark on a more generalized form of spirituality.

Finding the On-Ramp to Your Spiritual Path guides people out of the shallow waters of religion into the depths of authentic faith, a journey that unleashes newfound wisdom, creative passion and life-altering commitment. It reframes the spiritual path with broader parameters so the millions of Americans who have left traditional religions can feel included in a community of faith, albeit non-traditional and borderless.
It's a great gift book for anyone who is disenchanted with institutional religion and looking for ways to be faithful and spiritual in this complex world. It'll be in my gift shop by tomorrow afternoon.

Through story, poetry, and her own creative-mystical awareness, Jan Phillips inspires any seeker to discover the truth of their deepest inner knowing.

–Barbara Marx Hubbard, author of Emergence

 In No Ordinary Time, Jan Phillips has packed a lifetime of “AHA’s”—thoughts that suddenly give us clarity about ourselves and other selves, the world around us. You will keep sentences in your mind, on your bulletin board, in your pocket and in your heart.

–Gloria Steinem, activist, author of Revolution from Within
