Shanan Harrell has stumbled onto a writing style that is at the same time quirky and

profound, witty and wise, insightful and delightful. Stumbling Towards Enlightenment

is a down-to-earth read about how to be better humans in spite of our bumbling,

fumbling, grumbling selves. It’s about reaching out, letting in and letting go in

our search for our elusive, beautiful Higher Selves.

MITZI CHANDLER, AUTHOR OF GENTLE REMINDERS


Found within these vignettes is a spiritual practice without the usual fanfare of principles and theories. Instead, they are descriptions of ordinary moments in an average day in a normal life that burst open revealing their spiritual grandeur. Shanan coaxes you to see the mystical and obscure in the ordinary. This book will change the way you perceive your neighborhood and community.

PATRICIA HUNTER, METHODIST LAY SPEAKER

 

The combination of irreverence, wisdom, and her sharp but ever-compassionate wit make Shanan’s essays engaging, a giggle fest and soul-searching all at the same time. I may not always agree with her, but she never fails to keep me stumbling right along with her.

JODI FRIEDLANDER, CO-AUTHOR OF NUTRITION ESSENTIALS FOR EVERYONE

 

Not only is Shanan easily the best yoga teacher I have ever had, I have also never laughed harder with anyone in my life. A great thinker, great writer, great prankster!

Stumbling Towards Enlightenment is a journey that chronicles the freakish path that we all take to peace.

Shanan Harrell is like the Dalai Lama, if the Dalai Lama were to live down the street from you and throw really good parties.
