The Sacred Year Mapping the Soulscape of Spiritual Practice — How Contemplating Apples, Living in a Cave and Befriending a Dying Woman Revived My Life ~ Michael Yankoski

Pub Date Sept 16 2014

One searcher’s honest and fascinating journey to encounter God, love others, and discover his true self through a year of spiritual practices.

Frustrated and disillusioned with his life as a Christian motivational speaker, Michael Yankoski was determined to stop merely talking about living a life of faith and start experiencing it. The result was a year dedicated to engaging in spiritual practices, both ancient and modern, in a life-altering process that continues to this day. Whether contemplating an apple for an hour before tasting it (attentiveness), eating on $2.00 a day (simplicity) or writing simple letters of thanks (gratitude), Michael discovered a whole new depth through the intentional life.
Stirred on by the guiding voice of Father Solomon, a local monk, Yankoski’s life is slowly transformed. Both entertaining and heart-wrenching, Yankoski’s story will resonate with those who wish to deepen their own committed faith as well as those who are searching – perhaps for the first time – for their own authentic encounter with the Divine.

Michael Yankoski is a writer, itinerate speaker and urban homesteader who dreams of one day becoming a competent woodworker, musician, potter and sailor.

After studying Computer Science at Westmont College, Michael earned his MA in Theological Studies at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Currently living in Indiana, Michael has served on the Board of Directors at World Vision US, is a (novitiate) Oblate of Saint Benedict, and is the author of four books.
