This is an accessible exploration into the balance between religious conviction and spiritual exploration. In "Beyond the Pews", intuitive life coach Jillian Backman explores the shift that is currently changing the state of organized religion and provides an essential guide to spiritual fulfilment for those in search of a balance between religious dogma and transcendent awareness. Backman describes how humanity is entering into the 'second phase of spiritual awakening'. In this new era, there is no reason to abandon the deep convictions many of us hold for our religious lineage. Nor is there need to forsake our innate sense of spiritual exploration. We have rights to have both, to experience eclectic spirituality but remain grounded in our time-honoured traditions.
