Reclaiming The Sacred: Healing Our Relationships With Ourselves And The World

Reclaiming The Sacred by Jeff Golden on The Table Read Magazine
Reclaiming The Sacred by Jeff Golden

Jeff Golden explores the intimate relationship between material wealth and poverty of spirit in his award-winning book, Reclaiming The Sacred: Healing Our Relationships With Ourselves And The World. With scientific revelations regarding the things that nourish the human spirit and the things that don’t, Jeff Golden focuses mainly on the impact of money and possessions.

Reclaiming The Sacred is the result of 12 years of research into the works of thousands of psychologists and economists, cosmologists and activists, saints and poets, as Golden sets out to ground readers in their inherent joy, purpose and belonging — both for their own sakes and for the sake of the world.

Golden explores the profound consequences of materialism, including how it impacts the global climate crisis. Then he goes beyond all of that, diving into the very heart of humanity’s existence, by charting a path — both scientific and mystical — for reclaiming the inherent joy and richness of life.

As we’ve surrounded ourselves with more and more possessions, we’ve grown further from the sacredness of the world, and the sacredness of ourselves. As we’ve elevated economic growth and consumption to the highest measures of success and purpose, we’ve closed ourselves off from so much of the joy and wonder that are inherent in us and the world.
