An absorbing memoir of one man’s path to understanding how we can learn to lead lives of greater blessing and to be sources of blessing and service for the world as a whole.

For as long as he can remember, David Spangler has been physically aware of a spiritual world existing alongside this one. In 1965, David Spangler left college to follow an inner spiritual calling and encountered an extraordinary presence, which he named “John.” Over the next quarter-century John would assist David in exploring the “inner worlds” of the spirit, and would tutor him in some of the most basic mysteries of life and the nature of the human spirit. In Apprenticed to Spirit, Spangler recounts how John showed him the way to develop a spiritual intelligence—what Spangler calls “a mind of the soul”—and how to integrate it into everyday life. Spangler learned to think with his soul and embarked on the apprenticeship to understanding the sacredness of our world and of the realms beyond ours—a journey that continues to this day.

What People are Saying About This

Caroline Myss

Apprenticed To Spirit is a masterpiece of contemporary spiritual literature because it provides readers with a serious, grounded, and authentic story of how one man earned and sustained his relationship with his nonphysical guide. Few people have genuinely accomplished this goal. David Spangler is one who has successfully made the journey. (Caroline Myss, author of Anatomy of the Spirit and Defy Gravity)
