Michael F. Cantwell, MD, MPH; Author, Map of the Spirit: Diagnosis and Treatment of the Spirit
Map of the Spirit presents a radically new, universal framework of human spiritual development — the process by which we construct then live out our spiritual beliefs. Cantwell says that all of us, regardless of our particular spiritual beliefs, pass through the same four stages of spiritual development; "blockages" in this process give rise to “spiritual stress,” the spiritual roots of ill-health and disease. Using his book's questionnaire-based framework, he says anyone can determine, quickly and easily: 1) how much spirituality is affecting their health, 2) where they are in the course of their spiritual development, and 3) how to treat their spirits and their “spiritual stress.”
Cantwell's book just won the 2013 USA Best Book Award for Health: Alternative Medicine.
