Spark Change: 108 Provocative Questions for Spiritual Evolution

Jennie Lee. Sounds True, $22.99 (184p) ISBN 978-1-68364-458-3

Embracing Socrates’s notion that “the unexamined life is not worth living,” yoga teacher Lee (Breathing Love) promotes self-inquiry and personal change through reflective questions in this empowering compendium. She groups her many questions into 12 themes—including beliefs, accountability, inspiration, and love—that aim to help readers find their purpose. For instance, “how many times does something have to happen before it occurs to me to change?” aims to eliminate reasons for one’s reluctance to change. “When do I feel best about myself?” and “How do I consistently lie to myself?” focus on inner examination, while “How can I be of greatest service?” focuses on the well-being of others. In the final section, Lee turns to self-improvement with such questions as “What soul quality do I need to awaken more?” and “How does my ego most often try to delude me?” When answering, Lee implores, one must be brutally honest, ruminate on the answers, write them down, and apply the lessons learned. Readers of spiritual self-help will appreciate these inquiries into personal improvement. [em](Sept.) [/em]
