Meditations of a Modern Mystic is an intimate journal memoir about living from a spiritual core. It is for:

•Anyone who reaches mid-life and faces multiple challenges, alone.
•Anyone who has divorced after a long marriage.
•Anyone who has raised children and watched them leave home.
•Anyone who has taken care of aging parents
•Anyone who has experienced financial loss and insecurity.
•Anyone who has ever felt "owned" by others in relationships.
•Anyone who questions orthodox religion.
•Anyone who has been through a life-threatening illness.
•Anyone who reflects on his or her own mortality.


Think of Meditations of a Modern Mystic as Thomas Merton Meets Anais Nin With Children or a Mystic Middle-aged Mother Who Goes for Broke. Ms. Doerken's journey is anything but sequestered in a monastery or ashram. It is a very personal look at a heart struggling to find itself within the hubbub of daily life.

Ms. Doerken is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and trained for three years as a Spiritual Director at Mr. St. Mary's College in Los Angeles. She has also been involved with pastoral care for a number of years and is a Reiki Master Teachers. Ms. Doerken understands from personal experience the intimate connection between mind, body, and spirit.
