So holy hell, it’s been almost 4 years since I updated this section. Apologies. I’m still just one man handling all aspects of my writing/speaking career so I’m trying my best. So four years in a nutshell, I now host a podcast called Indie Spiritualist on The Be Here Now Network, have a new book coming out on 3/6/18 called Dead Set On Living with Simon & Schuster/Gallery Books, have done a lot of various workshops and spoken at many a conference, with plenty more happening in 2018 (please check out my events page to see if I’ll be in you’re area), and I’m sure plenty of other stuff, but there’s a quick update at least. Sending you all lots and lots of love and gratitude! – Chris

Damn. I didn’t realize it’s been so long since I updated this section. Well, there’s actually been a hell of a lot going on since my last update in March, but the reason I’m posting now is because I’ve got some exceptionally exciting news!

Chris Grosso Sounds True

Okay, so while the paper I’m holding is small, and the type is backwards, what it says is that my next book, “Everything Mind” will be released in the fall of 2015 by Sounds True!!!

I couldn’t be happier about this as I’ve been a HUGE fan of Sounds True for many years! They’ve published work from many of my favorites, including Ram Dass, Thich Nhat Hanh, Sharon Salzberg, Adyashanti, Jack Kornfield, Pema Chodron, Eckhart Tolle, Tara Brach and many more, all of which have been an integral part of my path since I stepped on.

In fact, it was roughly eleven years ago that I was at my local library and took out an epic 10 CD set published by Sounds True called, Kosmic Konsciousness. The audiobook was a crazy twelve and a half hour odyssey into the work of Ken Wilber via a conversation between him and Sounds True founder, Tami Simon. And here it is many years later with not only Sounds True publishing my second book, but, with Ken Wilber also writing the foreword for it!

Beside myself with gratitude and excitement.


Ken Wilber’s website, Integral Life, is featuring a recent interview Ken did with me as part of a pay what you want bundle which also includes the great Rick Rubin, Saul Williams, a talk from Ken and a 27-page primer on Integral thought and practice! Oh, and did I mention it’s PAY WHAT YOU WANT! How can you go wrong?! For more information on this bundle, or to purchase it, click HERE!

So I’m beside myself with gratitude and joy to announce that I’ve signed my forthcoming book with Beyond Words/Atria Publishing (an imprint of Simon and Schuster). I’m a huge fan of their work including books from Dr. Robert Thurman, Dr. Masaru Emoto, Jean Houston, Michael Bernard Beckwith and many others, as well as films such as “What The BLEEP Do We Know?!” “The Secret” and “The Shift by Wayne Dyer”. Thanks so much to everyone who’s supported me in this endeavor thus far! Grateful. So grateful.

Womb Of The Desert Sun’s e.p. “Where Moths Eat And Worms Destroy” is featured this week on iTunes “New and Noteworthy” metal section! Honored to be right next to Neurosis (cut off-left of pic.)


Words sort of fail to convey how truly humbled and surreal this is but I was recently asked by Stephen & Ondrea Levine for a quote to include in the 2nd pressing of their latest title The Healing I Took Birth For. Stephen & Ondrea’s work has been hugely influential in my life for many years now so this truly is an honor among honors. Not to mention the book also features endorsements from Ram Dass, Sharon Salzberg, Lama Surya Das, Marci Shimoff, Mirabai Bush and more. Just crazy to have my name on that list! The Healing I Took Birth For is available on Amazon HERE!


I’m beyond honored to have an endorsement I wrote for my friend Lisa Marie Selow’s new book A Rebel Chick Mystics Guide (Hay House) appearing in its release this month! Best wishes for amazing success Lisa! Lisa’s book is available on Amazon HERE!


Womb Of The Desert Sun’s e.p. was reviewed at CosmosGaming.com. Check it out HERE.


My band Womb Of The Desert Sun released the digital version of our E.P. Where Moths Eat And Worms Destroy today via The Path Less Traveled Records!
