A Former Nun Speaks Out

As more people find themselves questioning or actually leaving religions of their youth and adult life, BEYOND RELIGION provides answers for spiritual seekers of our time.

Reaching beyond simplistic doctrines and dogmas, Mayer shares her own yearning for Ultimate Truth beyond religion. She offers hope and meaning to those who are ready to move beyond patriarchal religious dictates, considering the rise of spiritual feminine energy in today’s social and religious atmosphere. BEYOND RELIGION also covers topics such as understanding one’s religious roots, a new perspective on the historical Jesus and the Christ Mind, better understanding a different religions throughout the world, the quantum and non-linear thought, meditation, healing and wholeness.

BEYOND RELIGION rejects self-limiting ideas about Truth, leading the reader easily through new concepts in the current landscape of belief. With rising consciousness now demanding more answers in today’s chaotic world, this book offers clear ideas for attaining a more meaningful life. As studies show many now consider themselves more spiritual than religious, BEYOND RELIGION is the perfect guide or gift for those ready to move beyond blind faith and religion by rote.

From her own spiritual journey Barbara Mayer offers personal insights into religious doubt and the dark night of the soul. By having taken the road less traveled, she is able to help lead others toward spiritual maturity and personal transformation.

BEYOND RELIGION is the only book of its kind, coming at a time when it can offer help and wholeness to a waiting world.
