Thank You Stephen Levine

January 18, 2016
I’m deeply saddened by the news of Stephen Levine’s passing. His work, along with his wife Ondrea, has been hugely influential in my life. In my sadness however, I find comfort in Ondrea’s words regarding Stephen’s transition, “His heart has gone to God. His light is left here with us.” Thank you dearest Stephen, and thank you Ondrea.

Everything Mind In Thrasher Magazine!

October 13, 2015
I’m incredibly grateful to Thrasher  Magazine‬ for this nice little write up on Everything Mind. Thrasher has easily been my favorite mag since the 80’s, so for them to run this is beyond HUGE! And I also think this lends itself nicely to one of the main points I try to make in E.M., which is that spirituality need not be compartmentalized but instead, can be experienced at all times… even while skateboarding and listening to Minor Threat.

Everything Mind Now Available!

September 30, 2015

Everything Mind Chris Grosso

Everything Mind is now available! You can purchase it on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or anywhere else books are sold!

“I dig this book. By sharing his life’s journey, Chris Grosso shines a light on our own. Everything Mind is a spiritual meal cooked for today, for us living now to taste, for our hearts and minds to digest.” 

-Jeff Bridges, Academy Award®-winning actor, musician, and New York Times bestselling coauthor of The Dude and the Zen Master

“I’m not a yogi from the Himalayas, a preacher from the pulpit, or a guru with dollar signs in my eyes,” says Chris Grosso. “The truth is, as a result of years of heavy drug and alcohol addiction, I’ve been to some extremely dark places that resulted in a literal life-or-death search for something more.” With Everything Mind, this emerging voice of the spiritual counterculture presents a riveting and insightful book about meditation, the search for deeper meaning, and the life-changing (and life-saving) process of waking up.

“Everything Mind” means it’s all part of the path—dark and light, sacred and profane, serious and goofy, tragic and joyous. Each experience is unique, each has something profound to teach us if we open ourselves and let it in. Sharing hard-won wisdom and the spiritual practices that helped him through his darkest times, Chris invites you to discover:

• Spirituality—how something that doesn’t fix your problems or change who you are can still revolutionize your life

• Why well-worn ideas like “love everyone” and “anything is possible” are much more than just wishful bullshit

• The perils of railing at fundamentalism—how to put down the pitchfork and practice compassionate spiritual discernment

• The mystery of “interbeing”—convincing your head, heart, and gut that you’re actually connected to everything

• Expressing your truth through service, meditation, sports, relationships, punk rock, skateboarding—or just about anything done with love

Finding our own spirituality is both liberating and terrifying. Liberating because we no longer have to be tied down by dogma or march off to war just because a guy in a fancy hat says so. Terrifying because it’s now totally on us to find out what’s true, what’s holy, what really matters to each of us. “Cultivating a spiritual lifestyle may be the most challenging undertaking you’ll ever face,” says Chris Grosso. “But if you stick with it, you can learn to meet all of life with an open heart—which, when you get down to it, is pretty fucking amazing.” (more…)
