Spiritual Memoirist to Read Friday Night

We hope you can join us Friday (Oct 22) at 7 pm to hear Michael Fischman read from his new spiritual memoir, Stumbling Into Infinity: An Ordinary Man in the Sphere of Enlightenment (Morgan James Publishing). The memoir tells the story of the son of a Holocaust survivor raised in an Orthodox Jewish household. As an adult, Michael gave up a successful career as a Madison Avenue advertising executive and, through a mysterious turn of events, ends up in the unlikely position of friend and helper to the great spiritual leader, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Michael's fascinating and personal memoir takes us into the compassionate and mysterious world of an enlightened seer, offering a compelling narrative that blends remarkable experiences with an inner struggle and search for meaning.

Michael is a founding member and current president of the US Art of Living Foundation, a non-profit educational and humanitarian organization whose programs have benefited more than 25 million people in more than 140 countries. By nurturing the spirit of service and compassion in every individual, the foundation seeks to build a global society that is free of stress and violence.

A former advertising executive with Ogilvy & Mather, he is also the CEO of APEX (Achieving Personal Excellence), the corporate training division of the International Association for Human Values.

“For the past twenty years, I have dedicated my life to sharing and growing on a spiritual path that has brought fulfillment and happiness to millions of people around the world,” says Michael.

Here is a short video clip that tells you a bit about Stumbling Into Infinity and how it came to be:
