Sacred Year, TheMapping the Soulscape of Spiritual Practice—How Contemplating Apples, Living in a Cave and Befriending a Dying Woman Revived My Life

Performed by:
Mark Smeby

One searcher’s honest and fascinating journey to encounter God, love others, and discover his true self through a year of spiritual practices.Frustrated and disillusioned with his life as a Christian motivational speaker, Michael Yankoski was determined to stop merely talking about living a life of faith and start experiencing it. The result was a year dedicated to engaging in spiritual practices, both ancient and modern, in a life-altering process that continues to this day. Whether contemplating an apple for an hour before tasting it (attentiveness), eating on $2.00 a day (simplicity) or writing simple letters of thanks (gratitude), Michael discovered a whole new depth through the intentional life.Stirred on by the guiding voice of Father Solomon, a local monk, Yankoski's life is slowly transformed. Both entertaining and heart-wrenching, Yankoski’s story will resonate with those who wish to deepen their own committed faith.
