The Power of the New Spirituality: How to Live a Life of Compassion and Personal Fulfillment by William Bloom has received a wonderful review by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat of Spirituality & Practice.

The review, which can be read in full here, reads:

The author has narrowed this expansive list down to the three golden key behaviors found in all traditions and approaches to spirituality:

1. “Connection: your heart is touched and you connect with the wonder and energy of life. 

“2. Reflection: you pause and reflect on your life and actions, and ponder how to change and improve. 

“3. Service: you have a clear sense of what is right and what is wrong, and you act so as to do good for others.”

There is an ethical undertow to these three spiritual practices which encompass traditional values, green values (protect and care for the natural world), psychological and emotional values (love, respect, and affection), and presence (radiate benevolence).

Bloom acknowledges that those questing for a new spirituality want to integrate it into their daily life at home, at work, and in community. To help facilitate that process, he presents exercises on determining the best gateways, discovering your distinctive spiritual style, and deepening your spiritual connection.


The Power of the New Spirituality is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound and other local and national retailers.
