Wisdom – Apprenticing to the Unknown & Befriending Fate



"Dr. Paul Dunion's Wisdom is a must read for anyone on a path of personal development or spiritual seeking. Its precision, practicality and beauty are the fruits of Paul's lifetime exploring the human psyche, intimacy and attachment, and the embodied path of meeting the Mystery. This is a rare and sweeping look at where modern life places us away from immanent experience and inside a series of costly by-passes in habit, mindset and practices. It is a handbook for a modern seeker who wishes their life to be infused with meaning, joy, closeness and devotion."
