Give a gift that can enhance a sailor’s experience for a lifetime. It’s a gift for the sailor who has everything – except a fully-developed sense of the spiritual dimension of sailing. The author proposes that “a word, phrase, or sentence can change a person’s life,” an insight proposed by Dr. Eric Berne, psychiatrist and best-selling author. Spirit Sail is a book to explode the sailing experience into a new dimension.
Deepen a friendship
A gift of Spirit Sail can deepen your relationship with a friend or a loved one. You may not have suspected that the other person also experienced sailing in a spiritual way, but never voiced it. Reading the book can help open windows that will enable you to see another person in a new way, to see a different side, or to get a peak at an inner being.
Spirit Sail can start a conversation you might never have had before reading it, and help you discover another dimension to yourself and another person. How many times have you heard sailors talking about the spiritual side of sailing after a day’s sail? To start a conversation, you might ask the question, “Have you had similar experiences to those described in Spirit Sail? Tell me about them.” Or, “One of the things I found meaningful in Spirit Sail was…what did you find nourishing?” Or “I had an experience similar to the one in Spirit Sail…” and describe your experience and how Spirit Sail triggered your memory of it. Then ask, “Did you find yourself resonating with any of the experiences?”
We all have a spiritual life. But often we don’t share it with others. Spirit Sail can help break down the barriers and give each of you “permission” to share a part of your inner lives and deepen your relationship.
Give a gift that will last a lifetime! Take Spirit Sail on your next cruise. Read it. Share your insights and spiritual experiences.
