Seeking Spirit Vision: Essays on Developing Imagination
“Seeking Spirit Vision, if you are willing to take it up and work with it, will change your life, as much perhaps as the most significant person you have ever met did. This book, if you wish, can become a lifetime friend” – A very wise friend.
“Perhaps only a jazz musician could match the improvisational ability shown in this writing. To improvise in this fashion, one must know a great deal, and then give up what is known and step out into the unknown, discovering what is there rather than imposing knowledge based upon previous information.” – Robert Sardello, PhD
This meditative book by Dennis Klocek provides a new approach to developing the capacities of our souls. Based in anthroposophy, Klocek’s thinking goes beyond what already exists to create a truly unique contribution that can heal the reader in profound ways. Working with the book, as Robert Sardello suggests in the foreword, will “lead to capacities of sustained concentration on and receptivity to the spiritual worlds.”
