Spiritual Atheist is a ground-breaking philosophical memoir that draws on the author's knowledge of cutting-edge neuroscience, physics, and psychology; his insights into wisdom traditions like Taoism, Buddhism, and Zen; and twenty years experience leading hundreds of major organizations, and tens of thousands of individuals, to transform themselves.
If you trust science, and relish reason, but also sense that your life has purpose, your consciousness is real and that love is a force for good - all phenomena that conventional atheism denies - then spiritual atheism can help you have it all without dogma or superstition of any kind. Not limited to revolutionizing your own happiness and wellbeing, spiritual atheism can ensure that, together, we recalibrate capitalism, reinvent politics, and make AI, business, and technology work for all.
This book is ideal for those looking for answers to the biggest questions in life; and who want to be part of the solution for our broken world.
