Pathways of Intentionality: Breaking Open into the Vastness of Devotion provides the reader with an opportunity to explore diverse narratives filled with experiences of fear and bravery, sorrow and joy, despair and hope, illness and wellness, reflection and action, death and birth, trauma and wellness, and ultimately stories that reflect living with intentionality; a conscious purpose to embrace moments of gratitude and forgiveness as well as tools, approaches, and rituals that have permitted the unfolding of conscious interactions and relationships with self and others.
Pathways of Intentionality is not a book to promote sameness in our human encounters or stories. It is not a book to show people how to become "spiritual," as the writers presumed that all humans are already spiritual beings. The narratives shared in this book do not have the intention to tell others how to live or promote the notion of a “perfect” life, but rather to inspire the reader with life stories that have been powerfully experienced and are now vulnerably shared. We, the authors, are led by the premise that as humans we have much in common. Sharing our stories with one another can become a pathway toward on-going wellness and living through the power of intentionality.
Pathways of Intentionality is a book that shares the narratives of a number of individuals from different life journeys, cultures, and life orientations. It presents the reader with an opportunity to travel into each of the writers’ lives, as they share stories of struggle and resolutions, vulnerable lessons that have led them to live respectfully, purposely, and actively practice conscious relationships with self and others. The roles of faith, rituals, intention, and practical wellness modalities supporting the authors’ ongoing journeys are explored.
