Trade Paperback 152pg | April 2012
Subject: Body Mind Spirit / Mysticism
Very few are aware of their spiritual nature in their youth. Most individuals grow without understanding how a spiritually centered heart can help them to interpret and cope with the challenges of daily life.
The youthful years of author John Stephenson were different. He walked a spiritual path that few have tread so early in life. As a child, John was surrounded by the wisdom of Joel S. Goldsmith, legendary mystical writer and teacher of the early to mid 1900’s. From many encounters with Joel and countless talks with his mother, Goldsmith pupil Virginia Stephenson, John’s spirituality evolved during a time of radical social change around the world. As he reconciled what he observed with what he was taught, John emerged from that era with an enlightened mind and a message for today.
GERALD G. JAMPOLSKY, MD: John Stephenson writes with authenticity, sincerity, honesty, inspiration and conviction . . . he truly walks his spiritual pathway.
RAYMOND WAGNER, Motion Picture Executive: In his book, Fullness of Joy, John Stephenson, a truly inspirational teacher has given us the keys to the kingdom. He clearly outlines the steps to a life free from physical limitation, financial limitation and emotional limitation. Can you think of a greater gift? I can’t.
There is a direct correlation between knowing your spiritual self and living a joyous life, writes John Stephenson. Fullness of Joy illuminates the great mystical and metaphysical principles in a contemporary context that help you discover your spiritual self, the source of joy, and live a joyous life.
Even though John Stephenson studied with the renowned spiritual teacher Joel S. Goldsmith, the mystical guidance will stimulate a new way to perceive and live in this world, a way that allows you to not only exist, but to thrive within a lifestyle overflowing with joy.
John Stephenson studied with Joel Goldsmith during the 1960s and has spent the past twenty-six years dedicated to helping others realize the presence of God within. Since the early 1980s he traveled with his mother, Virginia Stephenson – one of the original teachers asked by Joel to carry on the message – recording her classes, leading meditations, and recognizing the one Christ Consciousness. Today John maintains a healing practice in the tradition of The Infinite Way and travels throughout the United States, to Europe, Australia and New Zealand giving classes based on the teaching of Joel Goldsmith.
