From the Back Cover
In his bestselling book Falling Upward, Father Richard Rohr offers a new paradigm for understanding one of the most profound of life's mysteries: how our failings can be the foundation for our ongoing spiritual growth. Throughout the book, he draws on the wisdom from time-honored myths, heroic poems, great thinkers, and sacred religious texts to demonstrate that we grow spiritually more by doing it wrong than by doing it right.
This Companion Journal helps those who have (and those who have not) read Falling Upward to engage more deeply with the questions the book raises. Its inspiring blend of resources for readers includes:
- QUOTATIONS FOR REFLECTION Passages from Falling Upward give readers an opportunity to let their meaning spur thoughts about experiences or feelings. In groups, the passages (and reflections about them) are great conversation starters.
- JOURNALING QUESTIONS Writing in response to these questions is meant to help readers dig deeper into the concepts in the book. The questions can also be used to open discussion in groups.
- EXPERIENTIAL EXERCISES Because spiritual practice is an important part of growth and insight, these experiential exercises are designed to help readers take their writing and discussions further. In groups, the exercises can be used as the basis for discussion and learning together.
