Michael Mirdad’s new book, The Dark Night of the Soul, is really amazing in how it captures exactly what it feels like to go through that process. In my own life, I went through it intensely for a few years, and there were many times when I just wanted to… die. But I just kept trusting, even when I had no idea where I was being led, and eventually, I came out stronger, and in many ways, a whole new person. In fact, it shaped me to have the life I have now. At the time, I had to do my own research to figure out what I was going through. It would have been SO GREAT to have this book to help me through many of the challenges that I faced at the time, including relationship endings, job changes, residence changes, changes of friends, and going back to school. It was intense! From this succinct book, I learned the power and value of forgiveness of others as well as myself. I wish I had known that sooner. I also realized that the battles I thought were outside of me were merely reflections of battles within myself, and as I worked to resolve them years later, the outside circumstances stopped being of concern. Finally, it was very comforting to realize that even while IN the Dark Night of the Soul, I was connecting with the divine, because it was all I had. I learned HOW to connect to stay sane. I loved reading about the value of having that connectedness with God in order to truly rebuild a new life, which I most definitely have over the years. I am grateful and appreciative that such a tool given to us by Michael Mirdad is now available for others, so they can get through these times more easily, rather than doing it the hard way as some of us did. Peace and blessings to all who read this book. Read more “The Dark Night of the Soul – What a journey!!”

I have followed the teachings of Michael Mirdad for a few years now. This book is filled with authentic, incredibly insightful guidance. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to make their lives better. Follow his advice and you will be a happier individual. guaranteed
Just started reading this but so far it’s really hitting on point, definitely worth taking time out for!
Very good read. Very much what I already thought.
All Michael Mirdad’s books are inspiring!
Michael Mirdad’s is a spiritual teacher who had a message of Truth, Love and Christ Consciousness that he is sharing with the world through his books and teachings. These books are a ‘must read’ if you are serious about your spiritual growth!
There Really IS a God, a Creator, a Source, ….. and IT is IN every One of us…..
The Dark Night of The Soul Michael Mirdad has done it again! This beautifully Spiritual man has touched my heart with precision timing in this book. He immediately reminded me that my Soul (not I) decide when it’s time for me to journey within to discover what still needs… to be healed and released. “Those Damned Leaks” tend to set me back because my ego likes to think I have conquered all my issues and then another ‘leak’ shows up. And this well-written timely reminder helps me place forgiveness of self as a priority into my daily life again. There is so much love to give and so much good to be done in the world, my issues pale in the big picture. I CHOOSE to be part of the light and the darkness cannot change that. I highly recommend this book to every human being who has ever had a single bad day much less decades of pain. There really IS a light at the end of the tunnel and it’s NOT a train, it’s GOD. I LOVE MY LIFE and Michael Mirdad has been instrumental in reminding me of that by helping me finding God again.

Can this book change your life for the better? Absolutely, YES.
What’s it about? The Dark Night of the Soul: Out of the Dark and into the Light is a guide to understanding, enduring, and embracing it as a gift, a clear and present benefit of our soul’s inner life revealing who we truly are: The Divine Expression of God in… materialized spiritual form. This book expresses how it is this process, the unfolding of our heart, as the seat of our soul that purges all that is unlike God by illuminating the relevant tests, lessons, and situations that have served us up to this point. By being mindful and considering the unfolding of the “dark night of the soul” for us, we can be released to receive and give more and more of our truest nature. We live to our greatest purpose by acknowledging and experiencing the crises of spiritual growth. They potentially hold space for absolute transformation into the awakening of Christ Consciousness. Having read this book has allowed me to see this ever more clearly. The “dark night of the soul” is an instrument for dismantling the worn out old self to create a new self, the divine self. The “ten things to do and to avoid doing” chapters are keys to not only going through the “dark night of the soul”, but show how the dying to the old self, forgiving us and our seeming others, allows us to be reborn into renewal on all fronts. If I had to pick one quote that epitomizes this book: “The endurance of darkness is the preparation for great Light.” ~St. John of the Cross~ Now recognizing I have been through the “dark night of the soul” several times, even as a child, I see and understand how useful they have been to me. Would I have liked to been able to have found my way without so much suffering? Yes, indeed! But after each experience, I found renewal and a new beginning was now possible. If I have any regrets, it is that this book had not yet been written earlier to help guide me into more peace and acceptance. Can this book change your life? Absolutely, positively, without a doubt! I would recommend this book to anyone who thinks that “the dark night of the soul” serves no purpose other than suffering. Read more “Can this book change your life for the better? Absolutely, YES.”
Help is on the way!
This is a perfect book to read when you feel like you’re at your wits end and life is NOT going at all the way you want. I really love the way this author and spiritual teacher presents his eye-opening material with straightforward, no nonsense advice on getting to the… heart of your distress, and through it! This easy read is not over fluffed, which I especially appreciated since I was already overwhelmed with the anxiety of feeling stuck, helpless and almost hopeless against the hits I was taking from every area of my life. This book helped me qualify the differences between a mild depression or slump and a full-blown wake up call on a deep level. Everything was going wrong and I learned this major break down is actually labeled “The Dark Night of the Soul”. It was fascinating to read how a crashing life or even an un-happy life is all stemming from built up pain to know God. It was tremendously helpful to learn that I am not alone, as everyone supposedly goes through this at least once in a lifetime, lasting from a few weeks or months to a few years! Practical, easy to apply specifics are given on how to navigate and even perceive, as painlessly as possible, what’s happening during our darkest hours. The good news is, the author takes you all the way through to the other side, to the light at the end of the tunnel! Tips on how to maintain a better way of living were key factors for me, including simple lifestyle changes to implement consistent spiritual practices. My very favorite part of the book describes a technique called “stirring the ethers” to help instigate some movement OUT of the uncomfortable phases. You definitely want this book if you, or someone you love is suffering through overwhelming life challenges or a dark night of the soul. Read more “Help is on the way!”
A fabulous book that teaches us to stay centered in God, to help us and others through the DNOTS
This is truly a great, condensed, detailed book about the dark night of the soul. Michael explains with ease and clarity, exactly what we go through and why we go through this experience, multiple times in our lives. He breaks down what happens when we enter this period of time,… as well as sharing from personal experience, what to do when we are in this dark place, where life seems to be falling apart all around us. He created a blueprint to help guide us through this time of what feels like death, to coming out of the dark tunnel toward the light, to experiencing a rebirth. He talks about this as being the time for us to get in touch with our soul at the deepest level, to learn the lessons that we came here to learn. He shares 10 things to do when we are in this dark place and 10 things not to do. He explains that although we have no control over ending this dark time, we can help change the experience of it, through having an awareness of what we are going through, by using prayer, healing and forgiveness, which helps to create shifts in our outer experience. He also shares how we can help others through this dark time. In Part 2 of the book, he includes what we can do in our lives, as we come back into the light. He again creates a blueprint, to help move us back into a healthier life, centered in God, integrating our lessons and building ourselves back up, to then become Ministers of Light and Love in the world around us. This is one of my favorite books written by Michael, as he took a dark, dense topic and shined the light and love of God on it and through it and because of that, it is so clearly written. This book will help all of us move through our own personal dark night of the soul journeys, with an awareness, as well as a blueprint to help ease some of the discomfort and a knowing that we too will give birth to a newer, healthier, God centered soul. What more could we ask for! Read more “A fabulous book that teaches us to stay centered in God, to help us and others through the DNOTS”
Out of the Dark and Into the Light
The Dark Night of the Soul may be one of the most helpful books in Michael Mirdad’s long career of teaching and writing spiritually uplifting books (especially during this present time when society, itself, seems to be going through a Dark Night). Ultimately, this insightful, clearly written book explains how… “all things work together for good for those who love God”—are awakening to Love’s presence as their True Self. This book addresses all the “ills that flesh is heir to” during the Dark Night and offers a step-by-step method of coping with and advancing beyond such ills to the “Light at the end of the tunnel.” If you know or suspect that you are going through the Dark Night of the Soul; go out into Nature, sit under a tree, and read and contemplate the contents of this helpful, healing book. I highly recommend this book with its clear and practical steps leading to the transformation of the darkness of pain into the Light of spiritual renewal. Additionally, if you know of anyone who might be going through a period of the Dark Night of the Soul, giving them this book could be a Godsend. Read more “Out of the Dark and Into the Light”
This amazing work isn’t for everyone. It is only for anyone who wants to go deep inside and clear out all that is in the way of their relationship with God. Although it seems quite simple, the content has us penetrating our deepest wounds, and learning to forgive, not only… others, but even the parts of ourselves that we tend to try to ignore. Beautiful, simple, and clear, yet very effective in getting to the root of everything. Read more “Deep Cleansing”

I have attended Michael’s course where this book was used. I always find that I get a lot of knowledge out of the interactions. Love and Forgiveness and a greater understanding on where this can go deeper in my life. Abba St. Germaine
I highly recommend this book
I highly recommend this book! It is beautifully written in an easy to understand and apply format. There are many techniques that can be used everyday-which I have found to be very transformative in my life and relationships. It teaches about the process of forgiveness of others and ourselves, but… also about releasing the judgements of others and ourselves and returning to love. I have found many loving experiences manifesting in my life circumstances from practicing what I have learned from this book-but also a greater connection to divine love. It is an essential part of every day for me now, and I return to the techniques and what I have learned from The Book of Love and Forgiveness to experience love, peace, and happiness. Read more “I highly recommend this book”
This is amazing work. Some of the most transformative stuff I’ve experienced on this long journey of self-love. Easy and fun to read. Light, practical and highly effective. The exercises are short but magical. Very easy to learn and apply. Truly transformative, I can’t say that enough. I’m looking forward… to reading more from Michael Mirdad. Read more “Wow…amazing!”
This book is just what I was needing. Great platform
Great book from a great teacher!
This book really helped me understand more fully why challenging things and people show up in my life and how I just create my own suffering from this instead of seeing the insights & gifts they bring. Michael taught me how to get down to the truth of what is… really going on and it’s such a relief! And then he specifically shows how to deal with these challenges from a new (EASIER!) perspective without being all fancy and complicated. No BS! For me this book is a much needed investment in my spiritual growth. I LOVED IT! Read more “Great book from a great teacher!”
Love and forgiveness is all there is.
Michael Mirdad has taken the most important aspects of A Course in Miracles and made them accessible and usable. The text of ACIM I found to be very challenging to read and understand, whereas the ACIM lessons created a shift in my life which transforms my life today. The Book… of Love and Forgiveness presents those lessons in a concise and functional way in order to assist anyone to redo, reconstruct, or reorganize a life which works for everyone. Love and forgiveness is all there is. Love and forgiveness is all there. Love and forgiveness is all. Love and forgiveness is. Read more “Love and forgiveness is all there is.”
To the point and very practical. Excellent read
I love Michael’s style – very effective and easy to understand with great layout of practices and explanations. I also like that he is not obsessed with the beauty of his own mind (like some authors that write in much detail that adds to page numbering – it makes me… see them saying: “Look how smart I am, I know all of these details….” ) – these books were long to read and usually without good practical advice. Michael’s book is excellent and it looks pretty too :-) Read more “To the point and very practical. Excellent read”
… spiritual attitude and action that clarifies how to bring love and forgiveness into our lives in a practical way
Michael’s style is very direct and makes it easy for the reader to understand what he is saying. I have found the forgiveness techniques to be very helpful. Because of Michael I catch myself when making Judgements and am able to defuse it and forgive both the judgement and myself… for making it. Thank you for writing this book and helping me understand such an important topic. Read more “Love and Forgiveness made easy”
absolutely love the way Michael relates ACIM. by far my favorite book on the course!
A clear view of why and how we practice judgement …
A clear view of why and how we practice judgement and blame that keeps us from finding our innocence and true freedom and peace. Michael Mirdad explains A Course in Miracles so very well, with a practicality that helps understand how apply these principles in our lives.
ACIM from the Heart
By far the best book I have purchased to help me to understand and apply the concepts from A Course In Miracles. Many thanks to Michael Mirdad
Makes understanding the Course in Miricles information easier
Brilliant work by Michael Mirdad. Makes understanding the information in A Course in Miricles much easier to understand. Deep and profound presented in Michaels unique style.

Being A Course in Miracles student since the late 1990’s the book gave me a still deeper understanding of the course. I would recommend it to someone familiar with ACIM who would like a bit more clarification. It does a good job in summarizing what is to take place in… the world to end the dream of separation.

Love the book
Love the book, I have been reading the Course for many years, however, Michael has a way of opening your eyes to the real meat of the course. The book is wonderful.
I love Michael Mirdad and nearly all that he has to …
Next to A Course In Miracles this book is the closest I have come to understanding the truth of ourselves. Astounding simplicity, with such a practical approach to life. I love Michael Mirdad and nearly all that he has to share so I am extremely happy with this book.… This is not a book I would lend as I would see this as a reference guide always, but I would purchase this for someone else as a real gift. Read more “I love Michael Mirdad and nearly all that he has to …”
As a long-time student of A Course in Miracle (the “Course”), reading books based on It can get my ego in a twist! ;). But Michael’s book, for the most part, did just the opposite — it’s helpful, calming and a great Course supplement. Of course, I found a few… things to complain about but, focusing on content not form, Michael’s pure intent is clear and he has succeeded at being truly helpful. Also, the contribution this book makes to help “heal the separation illusion” (The Atonement process) is clear. I certainly feel more integrated and calm just knowing this book exists (and others need it too!) and that Michael and others are “out there” forming an army of loving people with pure hearts and the goal of following God’s Loving Guidance. Knowing the massive numbers of Atonement soldiers are on the march gives me hope in this upside down world (which has ALWAYS been upside down). While reading Michael’s book, I found myself applying the Course concepts in a slightly different way and also found myself explaining them to others a bit differently (although stumbles, on my part, still apply). Overall, I greatly enjoyed the book and put it down when I started to feel strain. That “feeling of strain” is inevitable for me when undoing my tremendous ego and that strain is usually followed by a nap. Hopefully naps helps me integrate spiritual concepts, otherwise I’m doomed! I’m glad to know Michael is out there listening for Divine Guidance and fighting the good fight on our behalf :) I must say, as an author myself, , after 20 years studying It, I could not have written such a great summary of the Course myself and that pisses me off! LMAO. As much as I love the Course it it still confuses me at times but I’m certainly waiting for the tap on the shoulder to give me the clarity I’m looking for and hopefully the next book in the Atonement will be penned by my greatly-willing hand. Yet, I doubt it — I seemingly belong in corporate America spreading the WORD OF GOD with my laugh :) I’ve personally read the Course, cover to cover, over 5 times and finished the 365 lessons over a 3 year period. I’ve been attempting to live the Course (at times quite Miraculously) and it has been a wild ride (I actually left corporate America and was a hypnotist for years until Jesus told me to get back to work! LOL). The Course, when I picked it up in the mid 90’s, was the first book I wanted to throw across the room in horror. But I kept coming back for more and it clearly speaks to me as TRUTH (TRUTH can surely piss our ego off!). I also almost tossed Michael’s book across the room but overall, reading it was a peaceful experience and very helpful. Michael’s book helped me integrate some of the Course concepts further. The Course itself says that It is one of many paths. It also says that It is a “required Course”, Hence, that must mean the only required Course is the course back to God and that course can take many forms (although A Course in Miracles saves time). Michael’s use of other religious and philosophical concepts in the book were more than appropriate and, in fact, helpful. My only complaint, which is quite silly because I do the same thing, has to do with his the handling of the topic of the BIG BANG and making it sound a bit real. To me, the BIG BANG is almost as crazy as the FACT that we are all hurtling through space at 67,000mph on a big rock around a big ball of fiery nuclear fusion. When you think about it, FACT is sometimes harder to believe than the the premise that this world and universe are an illusion. Crazy, I know — I am a lover of science. I dig FACT and do believe FACTS exist even here. Yet, I cannot deny the insanity of this existence that we are making up as we go along (WAKE UP ADAM!). Well, before I go to far, I REALLY LIKED “THE HEART OF A COURSE IN MIRACLES” A LOT :) (and to my fellow authors or grammar geeks, while you internally criticize my grammar, my use of CAPS. LOLs and funky punctuation, ThAT IS WhY I HIrEd AN EDItOR for my book! LMAO. Peace and please focus on content not form — it works and makes you a happier and deeper human being. Happy dreams!)

I purchased this book because I’ve always wanted to read A Course in Miracles. But reading the entire book seemed so daunting to me; like reading the bible all over again. It even has those bible thin pages. The title of the book appealed to me. It felt like the… Cliff Notes to ACIM. And hey, if I can pass tests on Cliff Notes then I am sure I can grasp the ACIM principles the same way. From the first chapter of this book I found myself with an intense desire to actually read A Course in Miracles. I have even pulled out one of my 18 copies of ACIM. I swear I don’t know where they all came from. I know I’ve never bought a copy. It’s like the Universe pretty much yelling at me, “Read this please.” Like the joke where the guy asked God why he didn’t save him from drowning and God replies, “Look I sent you two boats and a helicopter.” One reviewer commented that Michael used a mishmash of ideologies/religions/thoughts which misrepresent the course. Personally, I feel that incorporating the use of varied religions, ideology and quotes is a cultural courtesy and helps a broader and more diverse audience to understand the concepts in ways that speak to them personally. Interpretation of “The Course” or any such text is and always has been personal. This book is an outline the concepts or principles and not an interpretation. At least this is the way it reads to me. I can really appreciate the 12 concepts which put me in mind of the 12 disciples or 12 states of consciousness. I am really enjoying this book. I find myself reading just a few pages at a time and taking time to digest them. With a tendency toward speed reading this is a new experience for me. I feel that I really have a great primer for the ACIM and am excited to get started reading it. I am also really enjoying the exercises at the end of each chapter. I love how Michael expands on things like Ho’oponopono and Corinthians. The one thing that does not resonate with me though is the line “I’m sorry.” Just can’t say it, I choose to say “I apologize.” Saying that I’m sorry sounds too much like an affirmation of what I don’t want to be and doesn’t sound like an action. Saying that I apologize sounds like an action and not a statement of being. But that is a personal preference! I am not sure how or why but the book has given me not only the desire to start ACIM but an excitement about it. That, in itself, is a miracle in my book. Read more “Love It”
A book to experience!
I first want to comment on the aesthetics of the book. It is the perfect book size making it very comfortable to hold. The book cover is sturdy, made to last and to endure much use, and the edges are well bound. Font size and line spacing are perfect, making… it not only easy but a pleasure to read. Now, on to the content of the book – I have read through the first 4 principles and feel I can comfortably provide a review trusting the remainder of the book will not disappoint. I have been a Course in Miracles student for many years and currently facilitating a slow growing study group in Prescott Valley. As with other students of ACIM, there came a moment in my mind in which I realized that ACIM is a compilation of every book, every thought out there sharing the Truth of who we really are, the Oneness of our Being. However, as simple as the Truth is, understanding the layers upon layers of information provided through the Course can be very daunting. There are many books written to simplify the process of learning the Course in Miracles content. Most of these writings come from an analytical or intellectual point of view. While helpful to a certain degree, I was looking for more. The text of ACIM is essential in teaching us the principles; but, I believe that to truly understand what we are learning / have learned we have to experience these principles through their use in our lives. And they have to resonate in a way that facilitates daily practice. While the Lessons in ACIM are meant to help us experience the text, they don’t easily resonate with students, and often times daily practice becomes less diligent. When a person experiences the peace, the joy, the sense of oneness, the Christ in themselves extended to the Christ in others (the Holy Encounter / Instant .. the miracle in ACIM) if even for one moment in time, it creates a yearning in them to experience it more. And with that continued experience begins to come the understanding of all that the Course is. Michael’s book is written from the Heart space .. I believe the Soul purpose of this book is to empower us to experience the Course in just this way. And when we begin to master the primary principles he walks us through in his book, our experiences will allow us deeper understanding into the Course in Miracles. For those who expect this book to be another intellectual aside to A Course in Miracles, I do not believe this to be it’s intent. It is meant to touch our hearts, allow us to feel, to experience that return to Love (our right mindedness) to allow God’s miracles into our lives. Because the more love we feel, the more we open ourselves to receive, the more we extend to others, the greater and stronger our connection to each other and All That Is. And this book does this for me. It resonates within my heart. I believe it will do this for many. I am most thankful to Michael for being open and receptive to the inspiration he received allowing us this gift from the Heart of All That Is. I am most thankful to Spirit for the gift.

I found that Michael gave a clarity to the Course that I found easy to comprehend
Very helpful in understanding the major concepts within A Course in Miracles. Well written by someone that clearly has a very good grasp of the subject.

LOVE—you have to read this book!
I highly enjoyed this book and have recommended it to countless friends and family. I also recommend the book about “The Divine Child” by Michael Jones; they are complementary. I plan to read both again and again AND to buy some of Michael Mirdad’s other books. Namaste, friends!
A must buy by Michael Mirdad
Everything that Michael does is great. I have read all his books and attend Unity where he speaks. This book is a more clear understanding for me of the course in miracles.
I love this book!
This is an excellent book. Its easily understood and more importantly, felt in the heart. Its a book I’m going to read over and over again. Its a main staple for every spuritual library.

I have been a student of A Course in Miracles since 1990. This is one of the most concise books I have ever read that is associated with the Course that really gets to the core concepts, and explains them in a way that anyone can understand. It is really… amazing how deep the author can take us in such an easy to understand style. This is a must read for ANYONE who is interested in A Course in Miracles. It will explain it in ways like no other source, so that you can start LIVING the concepts presented. And as you do, your life changes in the most beautiful, miraculous ways!

A MUST have if you are a student of ACIM or want to discover what ACIM is all about.
I have been studying the course for almost 3 years. Have read several books about ACIM but that one top them all. I discovered Michael Mirdad 3 months ago and deeply resonate with the way it teaches what he learned on its life journey with A Course in Miracles. This… book is definitely a must have. Each chapter brings so much depth to the understanding and application of the course. I will cherish this book for years and use it as a reference…just after the Course itself.

If you were to read only one book on A Course In Miracles, this is the one.
Michael offers the most complete picture of the course, along with easy-to-learn steps that guide the reader to a full understanding of how we got here and how to best find our way Home. Powerful while concise, Mirdad illustrates his mastery of the material and his flexibility in adapting it… for modern day readers. He blends the threads of countless spiritual sources into a tapestry that reads more holistically than any supplemental ACIM text I’ve seen.

If you want A Course in Miracles clarified and demystified …
I feel peace in my soul and joy in my heart when I hear Michael Mirdad speak and I read his books. This book has satisfied my hunger for truth! Love you, Michael!
Love the book, helps with ACIM and links to a lot of like material.
A GUIDE TO BETTER UNDERSTANDING: A COURSE IN MIRACLES “YOU MUST READ!”
I am so thrilled to have this book as a tool of reference for every single part of my life. As a student of A Course In Miracles I stumble around a bit trying to understand its deepest concepts. Michael in this book has taken each one of the core… principles the Course teaches and broken them down in a way that I am able to much more easily understand them and apply them to my life. I suggest this book to any Course student and most importantly Course teachers as they will find leading groups with it will take their students further into their own processing and aid them in developing a greater spiritual connection. Even a new student on the path can appreciate how Michael takes Bible references, quotes from the Course and other spiritual teachers to help us understand the illusionary journey we think we have made away from God back to the remembrance of who we truly are when we begin to find forgiveness for ourselves, with others and in everything!

For me, this work perfectly compliments the more traditional psycho-therapy methods of healing, particularly the issues and pains caused in childhood.… “Healing the Heart & Soul” has provided a way to fully integrate and compliment the more traditional psychological/emotional healing with heart/soul healing, and Michael presents it in such a way that you are encouraged to go as deep as YOU feel comfortable. I believe this is so incredibly important as one should not feel forced to go deeper than they are capable of at any given time in their life. His approach honors and respects the individual and I believe this is vital for truly effective healing. Thank you Michael for sharing the incredible wealth of knowledge and experience you have gained from a lifelong dedication to helping heal others. And, especially for the LOVE with which it is given.

Beautiful Concise Way to Heal

A hands-on guide to self healing that should be on every book shelf!
After I heard iconic spiritual teacher Michael Mirdad speak in person and on video, I could not wait to read his book, and I’m thrilled to note that it’s exactly what I was hoping for: easy to read, hands-on, engaging, and it really guides you through the concept and processes,… so you can start practicing instantly what you are reading & learning! The book is written just like Michael teaches, with a good dose of humor and he says it as it is, with the utmost love of course! I also like the book’s manageable size, which allows you to read it fast, re-read sections you need, and practice while you learn! A must-have guide for self healing that should be on every book shelf! Read more “A hands-on guide to self healing that should be on every book shelf!”

His messages are truth and easy to understand and put into practice. He has an… amazing way of connecting everyone to their higher self. This book is a great example of healing your life.

Healing Your Core-Issues
Our core issues, the ones that reside deep within us at a soul level, are often the ones we struggle with for years, if not a lifetime. In his book, Healing the Heart and Soul, Michael Mirdad takes these Soul-Level Issues that can drag a person down for years, and… applies an inspiring five-step process that simply and quickly allows a person to begin transforming their life. Michael’s five-step healing process guided me through healing issues that I have been trying to release for years. I have tried healing modalities from East to West and they all fell short once the issue was “purged” from my body, because left behind was a big hole. A hole I filled with more unhealthy relationships, shopping, working out, eating and not eating; whatever would fill the hole. And eventually, the pain, be it physical or emotional, returned. The key that is offered in Healing the Heart and Soul is the process of Refilling. But instead of Refilling the hole with ice cream and abusive relationships, Michael guides you through actively, with focus, choosing what to refill with rather than unconsciously letting old patterns and thoughts fill in. By Refilling with new words that support a new life, Soul-Level Issues are transformed into new, healthy Core Beliefs. These new Core Beliefs will aid in calling forth that which serves a new, healthy life! Healing the Heart and Soul is one of those books I keep out on my nightstand. After I read it the first time I put it on my bookshelf, but within days I found myself reaching for it time-and-time again. The healing process in this book not only helps me move through my issues with ease and a sense of direction, it also guides me to better know and understand myself–the key to making choices that will serve my soul long into the future. Read more “Healing Your Core-Issues”
Healing the Heart & Soul is the very first book I have found to teach my clients how to make a permanent shift in their lives. It is an easy read, but a profound and honest look at what it takes to heal soul-level issues. As a therapist we have… been given tons of psychotherapy techniques to heal emotional wounds, but many times our clients don’t entirely heal. We see them come back down the road for similiar patterns being played out in new relationships. The component missing from most counseling techniques is the healing that needs to occur with soul agreements that have been made. It is not enough to heal just this lifetimes patterns, we must heal the belief system that we think we are seperate from God and therefore have manifested low self-worth and thus health, relationship, and financial trauma as a consequence. I think every counselor should have this book on hand in their office and I think every person who has woken up enough to understand they need healing should have it as well. It’s Simply Amazing!

The Teacher Has Appeared….
Most of us have heard that when the student is ready the teacher appears. Well my teacher has appeared so I must be ready! I love this man and I am drinking him in, allowing his words to fill my parched soul! I am so happy to have stumbled upon… him and his teachings. A surprisingly easy read for a book containing so much wisdom. I had a few “ah ha” moments, actually I think I had one for each chapter. I love the simplicity of the processes and the worksheets provided for each. If you are ready to finally let go of fear, guilt, blame, shame etc, and move onward and upward in your spiritual journey then I would suggest this book. Read more “The Teacher Has Appeared….”
Wonderful healing book
I used this book to help work on my emotional state as it may have to do with some physical pains I’m dealing with. This book was perfect to help me with that. I have been using “The Script” daily to help work on processing feelings. I am really enjoying… the results and it’s easy to incorporate into my day. I highly recommend this book! Read more “Wonderful healing book”
True and Lasting Healing
Quite possibly Michael Mirdad’s most important book to date,”Healing the Heart & Soul” goes straight to the level where true and lasting healing takes place — the mind, heart, and soul. What makes this book so important and ultimately so useful and effective is that it targets the core issues… (which everyone has) that need healing and explains how to access and heal these issues that keep people trapped in repeated episodes of psychological drama and pain. Although it includes the metaphysical, this is a practical book on the mechanics of healing filled with useful information (and exercises) on how to heal the heart and soul. The chapter on “Forgiveness” is a not-to-be-missed masterpiece on this often misunderstood topic. “Healing the Heart & Soul” is a book for the true seeker of Love and Peace — the seeker who really wants to return Home.

Healing the Heart & Soul is one of Michael Mirdad’s best works explaining how to spiritually heal the troublesome parts …
I read a lot of spiritual books to help understand myself as well as the souls around me in this lifetime. Healing the Heart & Soul is one of Michael Mirdad’s best works explaining how to spiritually heal the troublesome parts of one’s soul and also outlining steps to ‘be… the healer’ for guiding others in the same journey of spiritual healing that leads to physically healing and thus transformation. This is good stuff and I am constantly amazed how Michael Mirdad’s writings can take very deep thoughts and somehow make them easy to understand for the average reader like me.

Best Relationships Book This Counselor Has Ever Read
Creating Fulfilling Relationships is a book like no other! This book takes relationships to the next level by explaining how to create real, long-lasting relationships with everyone…rather than merely telling us how to attract yet another partner. It addresses the importance and relevance of establishing a strong spiritual and psychological… relationship within ourselves–including the healing of co-dependence and the development of healthy boundaries. Then it shifts gears and offers profoundly deep, and yet simple to apply, methods for creating fulfilling relationships with others through healthy communication and affection. As a counselor I am handing this book to every individual and couple who walks into my office. I also have begun using–with great success–the techniques found in this book with my clients. Michael Mirdad’s book on relationships teaches us how to stand and be accountable for our own actions and inspires us to be kinder more responsible human beings; as well as better friends, partners, and lovers with others.

Michael Mirdad hits the mark in his new book, Creating Fulfilling Relationships: Turning Cell Mates Into Soul Mates
There are many relationship books that are simply instruction books on how to find a significant other with whom one is a perfect romantic match. Many of these books offer little information that serves to help build skills to negotiate the challenges that can often arise in relationships. This type… of material can be disappointing because it can set up the individual to buy into the idea that happiness is “out there” somewhere, to be found and enjoyed only when “Mr. or Ms. Right” finally comes along. Michael Mirdad provides a fresh approach and a totally different view his new book, Creating Fulfilling Relationships: Turning Cell Mates Into Soul Mates. Mirdad advocates that before looking outside one’s self for the perfect relationship, one should look within, seeking to understand and heal any personal wounds that might block the flow of establishing fulfilling relationships of all types, not just the romantic variety. His wisdom and clarity on this topic is profound. He encourages each individual to establish a relationship with God first, then Self and finally others, allowing one to gain spiritual insight and clarity about what is really important in life, thus building loving intention and strength of character. By following this path the individual becomes more in tune with his/her essential Oneness and evolves into a kinder, more loving and caring person. Having developed this spiritual depth one is then a magnet for attracting other like-minded individuals. Additionally, Mirdad offers tracking tools that can help get to the core of any lingering issues, allowing one the opportunity to build communication skills, which can help navigate commonplace issues that often plague relationships. This book is packed with wisdom and knowledge that, when put to practical use, can open avenues to create a wealth of fulfilling relationships of all kinds.

I have read most of Michael Mirdad’s teachings and like his other books
GOD First! And if you don’t know this reference, you should definitely read this new book by Michael Mirdad. He teaches the importance of mastering your on-going relationship with God and Yourself, and then “sharing” a healthy YOU with all others…..Spouses, Life Partners, Lovers, Friends, Family and ultimately, every person… that comes into your life, or leaves your life. I have read most of Michael Mirdad’s teachings and like his other books, this is a page turner. You will not be able to put it down. Best of all, it will constantly resonate with your soul as it teaches you how to create holy relationships, the real reason we are all here. Get it NOW and improve your life and the life of everyone with whom you have realtionships! Read more “I have read most of Michael Mirdad’s teachings and like his other books”
Healthy, Holy Relationships of all Kinds
Excellent insight into what makes healthy relationships of all kinds. Wisdom on avoiding codependent relationships (two wholes make the best romantic/life partners, not emotionally wounded or deficient individuals looking for a partner to “complete” them). Inspired guide to healthy, holy relationships for happy/harmonious living with friends, family and co-workers too.
A Must Read for Creating Fulfilling Relationships…..and Life!
When thinking of a book on relationships, one usually thinks in terms of romantic relationships and how to get them and keep them. Creating Fulfilling Relationships is so much more. This book looks at the foundation of all of our relationships–our relationship with God and Self first, and then, from… there how to create healthy relationships with others–family, friends, romantic partners, all relationships. This is such an important book and one I know I will refer to again and again, not only to improve my relationships. but to find peace within myself and with God, because as Michael states, all of our relationships are about creating more love or finding the obstacles within ourselves to love. So it may help create fulfilling relationships, but I also believe this book will help me create an overall more fulfilling life!

Great read about relationships
I listened to the recording of Michael’s course on Relationships along with reading this book. It is very deep and points out to many aspects of how to deal with relationships. As always, I like Michael’s style of writing – simple and effective with a practicality. It helped me greatly… to look into my own relationships and understand them better.

I have given this book as gifts, and they are well appreciated! Read more “Do you need one suggestion for a gift to men …”
I have read a lot of books on Relationships, but this is, hands down, the best I have read. Michael Mirdad’s style of writing is so clear and concise. What I really loved is that it isn’t just about romantic relationships, although it addresses that too. It’s about EVERY relationship… we have, and as humans, we have relationships with every one and every thing. This book really goes into detail about how to have a HOLY relationship with anyone or anything, and the difference between this sort of interdependent relationship versus the typical codependent relationships we have been taught about throughout our lives. If you really want a better sense of how to have great relationships, you need this book. Read more “Holy Relationships!”
This book is very concise and comforting. It gives life lessons in an easy format and reaffirms the progress you have made in life already. I recommend all Michael’s books and workshops.
I openly use this book in my practice and give it away as a resouce!
As a hypnotherapist, clients come to me often as a last resort saying, “my life is falling apart and I don’t know what else to do.” I too was in a “dark night of the soul” when Michael Mirdad’s “You’re Not Going Crazy You’re Just Waking Up” book was recommended… to me. I immediately read it through once, twice, thrice, and still use it daily for my own personal development and in my business. I incorporate the book as a guide with my clients as I see them through their “dismantling” phase and coach them to building a new life! Included in the cost of client sessions is a copy of this book using the exercises and prayers as homework. Nobody has a problem too big for this little book to handle. Thank you Dr. Mirdad for clearly defining a soul “transformation process” we can all easily incorporate into our daily life!

A wonderful book by an amazing teacher
This book is for anyone feeling like their world is quickly changing at a head-spinning rate. I found I was having many “symptoms” of a spiritual awakening and sometimes I was feeling not so spiritual! This light book gave me a sense of calm… a sense of “oh, I’m not… alone in this”. Think of it as a navigation guide for your soul. And good luck! Read more “A wonderful book by an amazing teacher”
You’re Not Going Crazy….You’re Just Waking Up!
I found this to be an incredibly focused little book with a HUGE message. This is a pointed, direct, yet charming easy-to-read manuscript that touches and moves the soul on so many levels. The pages are colorfully dressed with many spiritual reminders that we are all, indeed, “waking up” to… Spirit and our full potential. Most importantly, this book specifically guides the reader, step by step, through the various stages of soul transformation, leading the reader to a better understanding of why personal trials and tribulations help steer us towards our own spiritual awakening. This is a must read for anyone on his or her own spiritual path and/or in need of personal healing. Beautiful book that consoles the heart and touches the soul, especially during these challenging, present-day times. Read more “You’re Not Going Crazy….You’re Just Waking Up!”
A beautifully-package and well-written book by a modern-day spiritual master!
I’ll repeat myself by saying that this is a beautifully-package and well-written book by a modern-day spiritual master. It is simple, yet profound with lots of subtle bits of humor sprinkled in. This is a book of ancient wisdom told with modern terms like “download this into your mind.” This… is my second full reading of the book in the last four days. It has the feel of a workshop with its lessons, exercises, examples, and prayers. I plan on keeping this book by my bed so that I can read the prayers before I go to sleep at night. I’ve been through several crash and burn situations in my life that have been largely unnoticed by anyone except me. I now realize the value of fully understanding the Dismantling, Emptiness, and Disorientation phases of the Soul Transformation Process. During my tough times, I didn’t know how depressed I could get, how I’d lose friends, and how I’d be subjected to unkind ridicule. Now I know that’s all part of the process.

I first bought this book for a friend of mine; she was going through a tumultuous transition and I wanted to help… I should have known better, a week later, it was my turn! I ended up having to get her another copy! This book doesn’t erase scary feelings, it… explains them (like taking Lamaze class before giving birth).

A Must Needed Spiritual Guide To Soul Development
Dr. Mirdad’s book has been absolutely essential in my counseling practice, for helping my client’s to understand the purpose of life’s tests. I have handed it to all age groups, spiritual backgrounds, and gender, and everyone seems to return with a comforting insight that they were not able to acquire… on their own about the soul’s plan for growth and development. I am happy to finally find a teacher who explains what happens to us when our lives fall apart from a spiritual perspective that doesn’t make God the scapegoat for why death, unemployment, divorce, and disease occur. This is a must read book and should be in everyone’s library. If you like Michael’s book you should definitely check out Angela Sorenson’s autobiography, because she highlights Dr. Mirdad’s teachings and shares from a very vulnerable and honest perspective what it takes to truly heal your life. Oh…For the Love of God: A Tell All Story of a Woman’s Journey Toward Self-Discovery Read more “A Must Needed Spiritual Guide To Soul Development”
What a surprise this one was. So short, but so insightful. I would recommend it to anyone who’s into spiritual or personal growth.
An “owner’s manual” for living through challenges
This book is wise and witty, much like Michael Mirdad himself. You’ll want to read through it more than once…savoring every word. It is an easy read that is full of insight…the prayers and exercises are tremendously helpful in guiding one through a dark time. It discusses the transformation process… that will get you through life’s challenges. The process includes five stages: dismantling, emptiness, disorientation, re-building, and a new life. Mirdad likens it to childbirth, where the pain can seem endless, but is quickly forgotten with the arrival of a new baby. It all sounds so simple–so logical–in Mirdad’s words. A must-read for everyone who is struggling through difficult times or who is looking to achieve new depths of spirituality. Read more “An “owner’s manual” for living through challenges”

You’ll Love It!
This is a great book which will open up your heart to understand more about where you’re life is headed & that you are among others who are going through the same experience.
Much Needed Insight
I read this book during a hard time in my life, when everything seemed to fall apart and just as the title implies, I thought I was going to go crazy! One thing after another, without any rhyme or reason, and I just couldn’t understand! This book greatly helped… me through this time, giving me a positive outlook on these situations which I thought no good could come of. By the end of this rather short little book, I was ready to face a new chapter in my life with my head held high, rather than being afraid of more negative situations being thrown at me. Once I stepped back and looked at everything in my life from the perspective given by Dr. Mirdad, I was able to see the big picture and the universal reasons behind everything that was going on. In the end, I was given the “push” I was so badly in need of in life, and once I accepted this things began to smooth out almost immediately, and I now feel I am closer to where I should be in my life. It may seem overkill to attribute so much to a book, but I do owe much to Dr. Mirdad and this amazing insight, which was just what I needed! I hope that through sharing my experience others who believe they may be going through what I did will look into this book, and possibly find the same help I did. I wish good luck to such individuals, and hope you find the peace you’re searching for, whether it be here, or where ever you’re able to obtain it. Read more “Much Needed Insight”
A concisely written tool for decoding your soul’s purpose!
I very much appreciate how Michael has taken 10’s of thousands of words of knowledge and “drawn a map” to simplify the journey to our soul’s happiest purpose! Just do the exercises – results are immediate. Thank you, Michae

Exactly where I was at
This book helped me to feel at home with what I was going through and know it is all okay.
Thank heaven I am not going crazy!
What a brilliant and powerful little book. This is a potent and concise description of the stages one goes through as they walk through soul transformation. What a relief it was to find that I was not alone in the things I was experiencing in my journey to “enlightenment”. I… also found great comfort in knowing that there are clearly defined stages to the process…..this helped me not to fear as much what the next stage granted. Because this book so brilliantly lays out the details and yet big picture to soul transformation I was able to take one step at a time in pursuing my goal of spiritual wellness while at the same time have the continual encouragement of seeing the glory of the big picture. This author has a mastery of presenting understandable, relatable and concise tools to the pursuit of transforming ones soul. If soul transformation is what you are experiencing I think you will find comfort in this book. Read more “Thank heaven I am not going crazy!”

Michael’s book was so eye opening for me as well as being heart opening. When we are in the midst of difficulties in our lives, it is so easy for us to think there is something we are doing wrong that is causing the challenges. It was a great reminder… to know it is all part of the awakening experience, to remember who we are and why we are here, to be love, to share love everywhere we go. It is our life’s mission. Michael is a good example of that. Thank you, Michael, for the wonderful work you do. We enjoyed having you at Unity on Cape Cod when you were on the East Coast. With love and blessings, Patricia Conte-Nelson xo :) Read more “it is so easy for us to think there is something we are …”

A very complex, bottom of your soul calling, a stage of life truly frightening. But reading this book helped to simplify, bring humility and our true souls need to want to do it right, intelligent, thoughtful and caring.
you’re not going crazy…you’re just waking up!
A wonderful book. Easy to read and understand and yet so very profound. I go back and read passages over and over again and have given copies to my friends and family.
You’re Not Going Crazy…
This could easily be referred to as a pocket guide to ‘Life’. A spiritual navigation through the bumpy roads we endure written beautifully from a true Master. It describes what we are experiencing in a way we can grasp a true understanding of ‘why’ we experience the things we do… and how to move through it with grace and dignity to a much better place. It has greatly enhanced my own journey making it easier to endure even the hardest steps. I highly recommend this book as I can not imagine a person on the planet that wouldn’t benefit from reading it. Read more “You’re Not Going Crazy…”
Someone recommended this book to me. Fantastic! I love it. This is my first introduction to Michael Mirdad. Even though the book is only 90 pages, it is to the point about Soul Transformation. It explains so much of what I’ve been going through these last few years. I felt… so much better after reading it. Thank you, Michael, for such a gem of a book. Read more “Fantastic!”
A Pocket Guide for Life
Little books, compacted packets of essential wisdom often call to me at the checkout counter at my local bookstore. I’ll grab one to add to a gift or because the title will speak to appease a lingering emotional angst. Once in hand, the little book will hold me for all… of fifteen minutes. Words, such as those in a compilation of famous quotes or Life’s Little Instruction Book, will offer but fleeting comfort and wisdom. Michael Mirdad’s little book entitled You’re Not Going Crazy…You’re Just Waking Up! is different. Yes, I was drawn in by the beautiful cover, the compact easily accessible quick read and the title that promised me at last the route out of the sometimes crazy state of my human condition. But once inside that little book I realized I had indeed come upon true wisdom. Michael Mirdad’s words carry more than your average message. These are words of light. Encountering pain, adversity and loss are inevitable events throughout our human lives. In this little book, Michael Mirdad, a teacher of Christ consciousness and spirit-based health and healing, not only presents a succinct way through pain, but aids in enlightening us to its greater purpose. Whatever the nature of your trial or “dark night of the soul” Michael Mirdad’s outline for this process is written so clearly and with such heartfelt investment in our success that this is a book to hold on to. It’s like a compact first aid kit to revisit time and time again for those times when we are confronted with life’s adversities. He outlines five stages that not only provide such relief but are the essential steps in the process of soul transformation. The five stages are 1) Dismantling 2) Emptiness 3) Disorientation 4) Re-building and 5) A New Life. Similar to the five stages of grieving Michael Mirdad’s explanation of these steps takes us one level deeper into cosmic reasons that illustrate the soul’s task of shedding ego and developing spirit. Five steps. Sounds simple doesn’t it? We all know it’s not, but Michael Mirdad’s writing is so compelling and easy to understand that once we understand the process, we’ve made it halfway to that light at the end of the tunnel. For me personally, I’m no stranger to pain. Widowed with five children I’ve had my share of trials and I’m sure there will be many more to come. This little book is now like my little essential pocket guide.

This book is a gem!
This latest book by Michael Mirdad is definitely a gem! It is concise and yet thorough. I have read it through a few times and still look up aspects of it again.I hadn’t realized there were actual, definable steps to learn from within certain events I was labeling as failures,… until I read this book. Have you ever found it annoying if someone said to you, “you brought this on yourself”, or any such thing that sounded like that! I sure have. Now i find it easier to see my part and welcome change. Not only I have been helped but I am able help others, if it comes up, in a gentle and comprehensive way. I am looking forward to more from Michael Mirdad. Read more “This book is a gem!”

YOU ARE NOT CRAZY YOU ARE WAKING UP
CONTAINS MUCH ENLIGHTENED TRUTH IN A CONCISE FORMAT. IT STATES WHAT WE ALREADY KNOW BUT NEED REMINDED ON OCCASION. THE TITLE WILL LEAD TRUTH-SEEKERS TO READ IT.
Highly recommended no matter where you are in the soul transformation process.
Amazing book. Came to me at the perfect time in my life and each soul transformation stage reflected the steps I had to go through. I love Michael’s quote and use of that great Yes song Changes from 90125 — “At some point, your life is going to fall apart,… crash, become stagnant or perhaps become unfulfilling. It will happen to you; it will happen to me; it will happen to everyone eventually. It’s unavoidable, much like death itself. It’s like the old saying, “You can run, but you can’t hide.” In the pages that follow, this learning experience is referred to as the “Soul Transformation Process.” Read more “Highly recommended no matter where you are in the soul transformation process.”
I can highly recommend his book
The very idea that we all go through the ups and downs of life! Michael explains what happens to all of us and “wakes” us up to the idea that it is normal to go through the various bumps in the road that life IS! Having the opportunity to see… Michael speak in person, I can highly recommend his book….knowing where his “heart” is. You will enjoy this book and grow from the knowledge it imparts upon you!

Boy, was this unexpected! The thesis is well presented and the five stages of spiritual transformation were well delineated. Before I was half-way through, I was writing down events from my past which proved Mirdad’s typology. This is a short enough book to make a re-read possible, and/or to re-read… the portions that I’m still “getting”. Read more “Not Crazy”

This is a gem of a little book for anyone who has been diagnosed as depressed or is consciously journeying through a dark night of the soul. Very simply written and easily understandable. Highly recommended.
It’s a wonderful book, very comforting when going through this incredible process

Undergoing Changes in Your Life?
“You’re Not going Crazy” is a learner’s manual for being a human on planet Earth where change is the “name of the game.” Who has not experienced various degrees of angst from wanted or unwanted changes? Michael Mirdad gives a “blow by blow” description of the psychological/emotional/mental processes all of… us have gone through when experiencing the major (and minor) stress resulting from the changes in our lives that are necessary for spiritual growth. More than just a description, however, “You’re Not Going Crazy” tells us how to recognize the various phases, or stages, of inner transformation, how to deal with the accompanying anxieties, and how to help ourselves heal. A valuable book for everyone, especially someone in “crisis,” “You’re Not Going Crazy” is a must-read for counselors of every type to help them truly understand what their clients are going through and how better to help them.

Did you ever have one of those times in your life that may have gone on for years where you struggled and struggled but you couldn’t seem to break free of some sort of thunder cloud that seems to follow you around? This book helps with that and it’s a… quick read. I found it helpful as I was going through my transitions that seemed so bleak until I read this book. The author clearly has a religious preference but I don’t, so I just jumped over the very few awkward bits and focused on the point of the book. There are little things that make the world a little brighter when you can’t understand what’s happening or why. For me, a tiny piece of mica on the side of the road all twinkly in the sunshine was one, and this book is another. If you’re like I was, keep looking for the little twinkles and things that give you a little thrill no matter how small. There’s more to be found and you will find them, this book is a great way to understand what’s going on within. Read more “Quick Fix”
A perfect handbook for transformation
I cannot remember how many copies of this book I have bought, because I keep giving my most current copy away. It is the human condition to change and transform ourselves and our lives, the bigger shifts in our consciousness can be frightening. We tend to think there is something… wrong with us if we are not happy and joyous most of the time. This book is a great road map through the journey of transformation, to understand what is happening and to have an idea of what is around the corner. I work with many people who are used to consciously taking themselves through transformations in their personal and professional lives, at times everyone still needs the confirmation and assurance that this book brings to the transformation process. I will always have a copy and will keep buying more of them as often as I need to. Great book. Read more “A perfect handbook for transformation”
Motivating and Optimistic message.
Love it and shared it with several friends, a positive,optimistic outlook on life.

Author stays in touch
I asked author to provide a sample and he did! Many thanks to author for ability to sample.
Initiations are entry levels of testing the whole.
The book is a great read! I highly recommend all Teachers, pastors and even Masters to read. Humbling and yet satisfying book of containing all basics of the thoughts “why is life so tough?”
Easy to follow guide for any spiritual journey
This is a little book that packs a huge punch. Very well put together and easy to understand. I love that it is not about making any path “wrong” and all events are useful, if we realize this. My favorite, learning lessons the hard way or the easy way…..”love and… acceptance”, it’s easy if we choose that road. Great, useful information, easy read and a wonderful reference. I have had this book for 4 years and love to go back for pearls. Read more “Easy to follow guide for any spiritual journey”
Well worth your time and money!
This book is an awesome collection of timeless wisdom that has helped me to gain so much more clarity on what I have chosen to learn through all of the experiences and seasons of my life. After reading and absorbing the valuable insights and information that Michael has shared within… these pages, I am now able to clearly understand the past events of my life and how they correlated to the 7 chakras and my spiritual unfoldment. I had some big “aha” moments while reading this material, and suddenly my life is making a lot more sense. Well worth your time and money! Read more “Well worth your time and money!”

This book is very clear and easy to follow
As always when reading material or listening to Michael Mirdad’s work I come away with the answers I need in my spiritual quest. This book is very clear and easy to follow, I recommend it to everyone beginners and masters.
Solid resource to anyone starting on their Spiritual path
This is a really good book. It should be required reading for all teenagers. Here you get a complete look at what initiation is, how cultures viewed initiations, and what types of initiations there are. As you should fathom from the cover this book uses the chakra-initiation model. By that… it associates each of life’s major initiations with one of the subtle body’s chakras. This model is workable for many cases but should not be considered exclusive or the end-all-be-all interpretation for initiations. The book has many appropriate quotes. And overall it can be recommended without reservation. One of the most important points to pay attention to in the book is the distinction given to the healing path vs the spiritual path. Again, like any model it can be useful to look at the life process using these set of abstractions. But again I would say that at the same time the paradox is that the healing path is the same path as the spiritual path. And in truth there is only one path you can tread and that is the path of you becoming more your true self. Don’t get hung up on your path having a particular name. Don’t limit yourself by following the label of any one religion of view point (I’m a this or that). If you can be content identifying yourself as a human being then you can pass through all of life gifts that much easier. Now for those having tread the spiritual path of self-discovery for some time there is something to note about this book. Each of the first four chakra initiations are given their own chapter and average about nine pages each. However the last three chakras are grouped together and each has about 5 pages average. So I do get the feeling that the author punted towards the end of the book. You do not get as much usable information to orient yourself to those chakras. You should also note that orientations such as the Sufis consider the heart to be the most important center. In this book you kinda get the impression that the chakra initiations are like a graduated ladder system and higher is better which is not necessarily the case. Still, even the book is somewhat lacking in it’s end it still has a good finish. This book should be read by everyone starting their spiritual path. If you resonate with this book then you should check out books by the Sufi’s such as Awakening: A Sufi Experience . Read more “Solid resource to anyone starting on their Spiritual path”
I loved this book!!! I have read many books over the last couple of years as I embarked on my own spiritual journey and I found this book to be one of the most balanced and thorough approaches to walking through the stages of healing and spiritul growth. The author… seems to be a master at condensing large volumes of information into simple, concise and poignant concepts. I appreciated the authors approach to correlating the different energy systems in the body to ones spiritual initiations. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for encouragement, motivation or guidance in their journey towards self healing and spirituality. Read more “Balanced Sprituality”
Wonderful and practical guide for your Spiritual Path
The author describes in this book the diferent stages of the Spiritual path, and the diferent paths people may choose to do their Spiritual work, and how they look in our every day life, which is where most of us are doing our Spiritual work this days!!! I liked it… specially because it acknowledges the fact that there are several paths a person can take to achieve the diferent stages, rather than just acknowledging one path as the right one. I think whoever reads it can recognize where they are at in their own path with the guidance of this book, and can benefit from it. This book irradiates compasion, uncondicional Love, non-judgement and peace!!! I finished reading it, and keep going back to it for guidance.

Simpliciy with profound teaching. Love the book. Thank you Michael Mirdad!
A map that shows the way to everything.
This book is revolutionary. Most of us flounder through life wondering why things happen and struggling most of the way. This book gives you a step-by-step guide to true happiness, prosperity and inner-peace.

This book will give you insights into your life’s journey and why you experienced the things you did. It takes all of our experiences and puts them into a higher perspective.

Life’s Tests Made Easy!
Ahh, The 7 Initiations of the Spiritual Path – “Understanding the Purpose of Life’s Tests” This book took me by the hand and lead me down the “easy” path to understanding what was happening to me as I began my own spiritual initiations. Dr. Mirdad’s style of teaching is so… brilliant yet simple to understand. In plain language, he explains what you will sense, and validates what you maybe are already be feeling and experiencing, through each initiation and chakra opening. Now, when find myself occasionally ego centered and resisting life’s lessons, I know that I am just doing it the “hard way” and can then choose to do it the better “easy way”. A great book for anyone who wants to learn how to smoothly move to a higher level of consciousness with grace and speed. Read more “Life’s Tests Made Easy!”

Michael’s first book and still one of the best. Easy to read and understand the profound issues addressed. Says precisely what he has been talking about for many years.

You will want to go back and read excepts over and over again. Read more “The Seven Initiations of the Spirtual Path”
Michael Mirdad is a master of warmth, humor, and integrity
I found this book after reading Michael Mirdad’s latest book, You’re Not Going Crazy…You’re Just Waking Up!¸ and I liked it just as much. In his wonderful teaching style, Mirdad does an excellent job explaining getting through the stages of healing and spiritual growth. I’m continually amazed at how concisely… and clearly he explains complex concepts.

A beautifully compiled manuscript describing our evolution towards wholeness and bliss!
“The Seven Initiations” radiates an empowering, compassionate message explaining that the challenges we experience on earth are related to seven major initiations everyone experiences. Dr. Michael Mirdad does a SPECTACULAR job explaining our spiritual evolution as human beings, while at the same time, relating each of life’s initiations to… each of our seven chakras, known as “spiritual centers” in the yogic system. Most importantly, Dr. Mirdad creatively guides the reader through each initiation or “major challenge”—describing how it looks, feels, and the lessons we should expect from each. I loved it! It was easy to read and understand. By the end of the book, I was convinced that every human being could, indeed, experience Heaven on Earth—that peaceful state of being we all long for involving wholeness, Love, and inner freedom. After reading the book, I immediately understood what initiation I was going through, personally, based upon the challenges and experiences in my life at that time. The book gave me something to look forward to and brought more lightness into my life, as I began recognizing that each challenge was part of an initiation—not a problem. An amazing, extraordinary book that can propel one forward on their spiritual path! I would recommend it to anyone. Read more “A beautifully compiled manuscript describing our evolution towards wholeness and bliss!”
I really enjoyed this book and related so much to what was spoken on the 7 initiations. The points made were Crystal clear. Having read many books related to spirituality I find it difficult to find one that holds my interest anymore. This one did not fail and I breezed… through it in one night. Having traveled this path many years myself I really felt the truth in what was spoken and appreciated the clarity of it. Validation of the journey to remembering. Read more “Good Read”

Michael Mirdad does a wonderful job of gifting us with messages that are applicable to everyday life. He explains the energy body and all the aspects that we need to understand to return to wholeness with a greater connection to God.
It is an out-picturing of practical suggestions to come to the spiritual path leading to peace and joy in this life
Michael Mirdad’s book is magnificent and insightful! I found “Seven Initiations Of The Spiritual Path” to be very detailed and effective in the sense it brings clarity and peace of mind to one’s life journey, which is in fact a spiritual path. One’s understanding is deepened with respect to life… experiences in terms of initiations, chakras, and consciousness. Everyone walks their life path in their own way. This is natural since each person is truly unique. Michael Mirdad explains about the relationship between initiations, chakras, consciousness and life experience, how this applies to our own unique life journeys, and how we all share some commonalities in life too. We’re all on a Spiritual Path, whether we’re consciously aware of this or not. And, life experiences are better understood as Spiritual Initiations, of which Michael Mirdad provides the most excellent information I’ve found on this subject in his book “Seven Initiations Of The Spiritual Path.” A must read for anyone who desires a more comprehensive, enhanced, better understanding of their own life journey, and Spirituality in general. Highly recommended! That’s it! Read more “Brings Clarity And Peace Of Mind”
fairly well explained information, I found it interesting.. some of a new perspective on other wise old information that was helpful
An incredible book regarding intimacy and the self in sex. Absolutely recommend it to all the people I know who are in search to gain a better understanding.
An Introduction to To Tantra and Sacred Sexuality
Wow!!! What a book! Step by step intro to Sacred Sexuality, written with wisdom and a sense of humor. I never knew there was so much to learn about the sacred aspect of sexuality. As for Tantra Sexuality, I can’t imagine a more knowlegable book to read on the subject.… I recommend it to everyone who is at all interested in this subject.

balancing healthy sexuality and spiritual grace for whole, joyful living
This wonderful little book introduces so much information about sacred sexuality and tantra, but is also easy for a novice to read and understand. The history, required elements, and healing benefits of sacred sexuality, as well as basic foundations for self-awareness and intimacy with others are taught with depth, simplicity… and reverence. If you are new to exploring sacred sexuality, or are looking for a concise book without complicated instructions, this book is an excellent resource for you. If you are ready to incorporate techniques and practices, I recommend reading Sacred Sexuality: A Manual for Living Bliss. It is much of the same material as this book with very expanded sections on self-awareness and intimacy practices and techniques, sexual anatomy, etc. “The sacred sexual experience becomes an arena in which to be playful, spontaneous, nonjudgemental, and above all, loving…[it] urges you to expand your awareness, connection and and understanding of who and what you are…glorious, spiritual beings capable of experiencing bliss beyond the body’s ability to contain.” Michael Mirdad’s writings sincerely reflect his deep spirituality, expansive knowledge, and genuine compassion.

Intro to Tantra and Sacred Sexuality
This is a book on the topic of Sacred Sexuality and Tantra that is full of information yet graced with an ease of reading. It is perfect for someone just stepping into the discovery of ourselves as sexual beings on a spiritual level as well as those experienced in the… Tantric ways. I very much appreciate the depths of Dr. Mirdad’s knowledge displayed in a simple and concise manner. Easy to grasp and easy to apply! It is beautifully written and a delight to read.

Simple and Enlightening Teaching of Tantra and Sacred Sexuality
A very special book that infuses the spiritual aspect of the person with the physical in a most balanced and healthy way in touching all aspects of our sexuality. It focuses on respect and love of the other as much as the self; this book presents a well balanced approach… to a delicate subject. It is a manual for living a more harmonious sexual life with spiritual grace and to reclaim the total body experience about which most people have very little knowledge. I gave it to my teenage son as a gift. This manual should become mandatory reading in every high school so as to make the future generation aware of the importance of honoring one’s body in a sexual sharing context and for a healthy transition into adulthood. I also recommend it to any age group as the manual takes into consideration all facets of sexuality and insists on the experience of rediscovering the soul by manifesting love through the body. Michael Mirdad is a rare egoless teacher who honors each individual’s aspiration to return to a more balanced and healthy sexual life even after trauma and abuse. Dr. Mirdad challenges us to live in the aliveness of the present moment by choosing to experience our sexuality in a state of grace.

This book is fantastic. It will show you how your own body is a temple, it will show you how to connect your soul and the entire Universe with you, the complete you, the physical, the emotional, the spiritual and more. You will feel the real Love that is in… all of us but too often completely closed or barely touched. Michael Mirdad brings you at other dimensions of your being that you never thought were there and he does it with much sincerity, intelligence and beauty. A MUST for ALL human beings.

Discover a whole new life
I am echoing all of the positive reviews posted already. Sacredness in sexuality was certainly a new concept for me, but Michael Mirdad–who is an excellent teacher–describes well how to awaken this “path of living bliss.” He handles a sensitive subject with beauty and grace. If you are looking to… take intimacy to a new level, you simply must read this book. Read more “Discover a whole new life”

I first read this book in preparation for a seminar I was about to take. It raised my eyebrows more than once! Never had I seen a book that explained so much, in so natural a manner! There was so much information, it was overload… I confess, initially I didn’t… understand the Sacredness in sexuality (I’m still integrating!), but the journey is amazing. And when achieved, more soul-shattering than anything I’ve ever experienced. Whatever gets you started on the path of self-knowledge and self-discovery is a blessing in my eyes!

A Unique Book That Blends the Sensual and Spiritual
Sacred Sexuality: A Manual for Living Bliss: This book truly is unique. Like no other book I’ve ever read, it is a marriage of body and spirit. Not merely a sex manual, the physical, sensual, spiritual, and mystical are gracefully and tastefully interwoven throughout the pages of this explicit… and beautifully illustrated manual of instructions for the blending of sexuality with spirituality. Additionally, this book is an interesting, informative, and sensitive blending of sexual physiology, energy systems, psychology, and the sacred art of Tantra. It’s many clearly-explained exercises focus not only on increasing sexual pleasure but also on promoting overall health and well-being. Read more “A Unique Book That Blends the Sensual and Spiritual”

Not as advanced as I had hoped, as well as very male thought process in approach…but it was written by a male. Sort of hoping that this is just an intro to scared sexuality and further books will be much more indepth. Lots of anatomy, prerequisite and intro in this… book so it would be great as a starter. A fantastic book for beginners. It has just enough exercises and hands on to get you started, keep you interested and wanting to learn more. Have fun…lots of fun. Read more “Great For Starters”

I loved this book.

Sacred Sexuality was very informative in a non-threatening way. I have spent many years not paying attention to my sexuality.

TRISH THE DISH
Easy read and in Depth Presentation of Tantric & Taoist Wisdom Based Sexuality
This book is a must and belongs on every bookshelf (not only tantric) of any family in the English speaking world and hopefully will be translated in many other languages soon. I found it very easy to read, quite enlightening as it combines the physical aspects of sexuality with the… spiritual dimension of our being. This manual is not only for the sexual active but also for the celibate, for the singles and the committed in partnership, for the experienced and the novices, for the young and the more matured, for the heterosexuals and the homosexuals, for the ones having suffered sexual trauma and for the lucky ones who haven’t… This book covers the history of sacred sexuality, self awareness and knowledge, techniques for creating a blissful intimacy with the other, for intercourse and for “postplay” or closure. Dr. Michael Mirdad has masterfully compiled a well balanced, clearly explained, insightful, profound manual to heartful, soulful and all encompassing sexual experiences. I recommend it all heartedly to every reader. I will order many more copies as a gift to my dearest friends and family members. This is my first review for any book and I have a large collection on my shelves; this is how enthralled I am about Michael Mirdad’s teachings on this very touchy subject that concerns us all. You can’t pass this opportunity to easily incorporate bliss into your life, order your copy ASAP!!! Read more “Easy read and in Depth Presentation of Tantric & Taoist Wisdom Based Sexuality”
Like a beautiful box of magical assorted chocolates that turn out to be sumptuous AND perfectly healthful and nutritious, Sacred Sexuality: A Manual for Living Bliss is an absolute delight! The material is diverse and tantalizing, chock full of high quality ingredients, and when you partake you end up nourished… and full. Savor this book slowly, morsel by morsel, and don’t be afraid to try something new! Dr. Michael Mirdad has synthesized spiritual insight and practice with ancient sexual wisdom. If you are wondering if there is more to sex than a lustful quid pro quo or groping your partner furtively in the dark, if you have been wounded sexually through abuse, addiction or ignorance, if you have been seeking a way to integrate your spirituality and sexuality, or if you desire to steer your sexual life to the high road, you must read this book. The banquet is set with an excellent discussion of what sacred sexuality is, how it relates to healing and an historical overview. Dr. Mirdad’s treatment of responsibility in sexual encounters should place this book in sex education classrooms around the country. All the more reason to have a copy in your home. This book is loaded with yummy surprises, such as the discussion of kissing and mouthplay in Chapter 12. Have you ever thought of a woman’s upper lip as a meridian linked directly to her clitoris? Or a man’s lower lip as linked directly to his penis? Dr. Mirdad makes sure we are aware of such esoteric, albeit useful, knowledge.

In “Sacred Sexuality: A Manual for Living Bliss”, Michael Mirdad has put forth a true teaching of the experience of sacred sexual union. With respect, dignity and diversity, in a manner that is instructive and informative, he leads us to a conscious sexual awakening. He does this not from a… merely sexual perspective, but from the truth of our divinity as beings capable of living bliss within the Christ consciousness. Of particular importance is Michael’s gentle ability to encourage us to heal our sexual wounds and traumas through the love of conscious partnership. All throughout the book, he stresses the importance of honor, respect and safety, with the ultimate responsibility residing in our own healthy discernment as we seek sacred partners. With this book available, no longer do our teenagers need to approach sexuality in fear, trepidation or hesitation, for here is written a gift of helpful, loving guidance. I highly recommend this book to all who seek conscious union. Read more “Sacred Awareness”

Book is great educational reading
I like this book and came in mail quickly. Author of book and illustrations throughout are nice too. Book is worth the price and knowledge gained from reading.
This book is a must read for anyone beginning their search into something a little deeper. It is a great beginner book for someone who is possibly more timid in anything with elaborate rituals. The exercises are simple and mindful.
