Enlightened-ish is one of the most approachable, down-to-Earth books for anyone seeking a self-guided spiritual awakening. Gail’s work is honest, inspiring and undoubtedly a refreshing read in a market of deeply esoteric and trite testimonies about spiritual enlightenment and self-empowerment. Gail’s story begins with the unexpected death of her father. She dedicates herself to writing Enlightened-ish and the belief that this event will guide her to confront death and loss in a way that few have had the courage to do. She comes forward with experiences from childhood and adulthood in a way that would make Anne Frank’s diary look like a yawn-fest. With an outrageous audacity and authenticity, she confronts the death of her father, the loss of a spiritual community and the effects of witnessing a violent suicide, a health crisis and a break-up - all events which occurred in an 10-month period! Her ability to use storytelling as a means of identifying the universal truths that she calls the “Twelve Freedoms of Enlightened-ish Living” keeps the reader engaged in a polite spiritual voyeurism that has not been matched. Without exception, her tenacity about being fully human and fully “enlightened-ish” will change the trajectory of spiritualists in every religion. Never before has a memoir been written with so much conviction and humility, then packaged so powerfully that readers everywhere will be awakened to the power of storytelling. Enlightened-ish is raw, conversational and unforgettable!
