“Fear, anger, hurt, sadness, drugs, empty sex, food, cutting and suicide attempts—all culminated in a perfect storm, a tempest that shattered my heart and left me nothing more than the shell of a man…If I was going to live, I needed to surrender and find a new way to approach life.”
After years of heavy addiction, Chris Grosso found himself literally on his knees, utterly lost and broken. Grasping for life, Grosso needed to find a new path, one that went beyond conventional religious or spiritual doctrine—one free of bullshit.
Blazing his own path, Grosso discovered that spirituality is not something that only happens on meditation cushions or yoga mats, in sanghas, churches, mosques, temples, or synagogues. It’s not always peaceful and quiet. It can be as loud as a rock concert. Brutally honest and radically unconventional, Grosso’s collection of stories and musings about his meandering journey of self-inquiry, recovery, and acceptance shows what it means to live a truly authentic life.
Set amongst the backdrop of Grosso’s original music (included for download via QR codes in the text), Indie Spiritualist empowers readers to accept themselves as they are, in all their humanity and imperfect perfection. To honor the spiritual truth within themselves, to question the answers regardless of what anyone says.
