Anne Lamott & Neal Allen in Conversation

In this special evening event, hosted on June 3, 2021 by Naropa Extended Campus, spiritual coach and writer Neal Allen is joined in conversation by best-selling author and his wife Anne Lamott. Allen's new book, Shapes of Truth: Discover God Inside You, provides a contemplative method for discovering one's inner nature that is influenced by Eastern traditions, especially Sufism and Buddhism, as well as contemporary psychodynamics. Lamott's best-selling spirituality books often explore a personal Christianity that is removed from the currently popular doctrinal evangelism. Together they discuss their collaborative writing life, practical approaches to spiritual practice, freedom from suffering, and much more. Watch the full event video here. Purchase the book from our partners at Boulder Bookstore. Visit Neal Allen's website at
