My OWN Dream
A short, lighthearted story for Church members. I wrote this in response to Lehi's Dream (found in the Book of Mormon, 1 Nephi 8 and 11). I use some of the same imagery but take the story in a different direction—one that better represents my own conception of the spiritual journey.
I recently completed a doctoral degree in Philosophy and Religion from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. My dissertation looked back on my Mormon mission and focused on the ways the Mormon Church guarded against the emergence of a more authentic spirituality.
