Dead Set On Living Chris Grosso

“Chris’s books have been a significant source of inspiration in my own healing journey, and his newest work, Dead Set On Living, is no exception. Anyone looking for something real; something raw, ragged and authentic won’t be disappointed. I believe anyone who reads Chris’s honest and unabashed words will truly benefit. This is very, very real shit.”

— Bam Margera, Professional Skateboarder, actor (Jackass/CKY), and musician (Evesdroppers)

 

“Dead Set on Living offers a deep, intimate look at why we continued disparaging ourselves. This is essential reading for anyone looking to finally break the ruthless cycle.”

— Richard Rohr, OFM, Founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation

 

“Chris Grosso’s Dead Set on Living is an awesome work, the totally honest account of a man seeking the realities of life and death, compassion and indifference, sorrow and joy—as if they really mattered. He tells his own moving story, holding nothing back, consults with many amazing people who work with depression, addiction, etc., and shares with us his process of integrating their teachings and advice in a vivid and beautiful way. If you and your loved one’s struggle with life in an existential way, you will love this noble book—it will bring you courage and many blessings.”

— Robert A.F. Thurman, author ofMan of Peace: The Illustrated Life Story of the Dalai Lama of Tibet

 

“Chris Grosso is a Warrior of the Heart. With humility, honesty and courage AS his weapons, he does battle with the shadows in the dark corners of our hearts.”

— Krishna Das, Grammy Nominated Kirtan Musician

 

“This inspiring compendium of spiritual friends can guide us as we navigate the way through our own hell toward the light of love.”

— Alex Grey & Allyson Grey, Visionary Artists (more…)

I can’t even begin to tell y’all how much fun I had on this podcast. If you have any interest in the stories behind Indie Spiritualist and Everything Mind… this is the one to check out.
