Godtalk: Travels in Spiritual America - hardcover

2002, ISBN: 0679447091

[SR: 2502859], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780679447092], Knopf, Knopf, Book, [PU: Knopf], 2002-04-02, Knopf, From the author of City Poet, the brilliant biography of Frank O’Hara, now comes a fascinating account of thriving forms of spirituality in what is being called a “post-denominational” age.As the nineties were drawing to a close, Brad Gooch set out on a journey to explore traditional and nontraditional forms of spirituality that took him across America and to India. Gooch’s quest—partly personal and partly investigative—took him to Chicago to read the mysterious Urantia Book; to Goa and La Jolla to experience the talks and treatments of Deepak Chopra; to Ganeshpuri and South Fallsburg, New York, to listen to the charismatic leader Gurumayi Chidvilasananda; to Bardstown, Kentucky, to observe the quiet solitude of the Trappists and to Dubuque, Iowa, to see the Trappistines; to Dallas to worship with the members of the gay congregation of the Cathedral of Hope; and to New York to talk with Muslims and Sufis. As Gooch proceeded on this unique spiritual odyssey—from fringe to mainstream—he witnessed diverse movements and religions and their strong appeal to a broad spectrum of followers. Brad Gooch has written a revealing, richly detailed document of our time. In Godtalk, character, dialogue, and setting come together in an irresistible, fast-paced narrative that is both engaging and informative about the unexpected nature o, In Godtalk novelist Brad Gooch stumbles into the gracelands and wastelands of contemporary spirituality. In the late 1990s he embarked on an unconventional odyssey to explore the spiritual movements of America. The result is a rich memoir about a "frequent flier pilgrim" who mixes with celebrities like Deepak Chopra as well as cloistered nuns and chanting Sufis. He finds committed, disciplined disciples alongside individuals who treat religions like self-help programs and mix rituals, prayers, and practices into a personalized stew. Gooch has a novelist's narrative skills and is able to pan back and give sweeping overviews. "We spent most of the week sitting cross-legged in large white plastic chairs or lying on blankets breathing carefully in and out, trying to slip into what Chopra called 'the gap'--the missed beat where bliss lies," he writes of a meditation retreat. "For anyone who peeked into the tent, we must have looked like we'd been knocked out by a powerful bug spray." His rich experiences in ashrams, monasteries, churches, and retreat centers are engaging as stand-alone chapters (some were the basis of magazine articles). Unfortunately, Gooch rarely ties these experiences all together. For readers who want their fingers on the pulse of American spirituality, this makes an interesting, but limited, armchair pilgrimage. --Gail Hudson, 6343240011, General, 6343224011, Religious, 5035, World, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 12785, History, 12779, Religious Studies, 22, Religion & Spirituality, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
