about

Imagine achieving physical fitness and spiritual growth simultaneously. Roger Joslin's step-by-step program is an engaging exploration of the truth that spiritual well-being is as likely to happen while running, as it is within the more traditional settings of neighborhood churches, synagogues, or mosques. Through awareness, chants, and visualization, and through attention to the present moment--the weather, pain, or breathing---a simple run can become the basis for a profound spiritual practice, and Running the Spiritual Path is here to guide you.

Roger D. Joslin is currently preparing for the priesthood at the Episcopal Theological Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, Texas. His days are filled studying, working, writing, and running in the Texas Hill Country.

Editorial Reviews

"A splendid, new, outside-the-box contribution...at the deepest level, what Joslin has offered us is far more that just an excellent handbook. It is a record of a soul in progress--progress toward integration and harmony." -The Episcopal New Yorker"Joslin recounts his profound experiences on reverent runs and offers readers suggestions on how to infuse spiritual growth into their jogs through running mantras, stretches as prayer posters and more. Incorporate some of his suggestions on your next outing and you'll say I've come this far by faith." -Heart and Soul Magazine"Joslin inspires us to bring intention and purpose to any activity we do regularly, seeking communion with God whether we are cooking, cleaning the house, or commuting. In other words, you don't have to be a runner to get guidance from this practical book." -Spirituality and Health
