When his pursuit of happiness in Corporate America feels counterproductive, Timber Hawkeye escapes the fluorescent-lit hell of his cubicle in Seattle and sets out to fully embrace the stress-free lifestyle of Hawaii. Intrigued and curious about what people believe (and why they believe what they do), he questions everything he ever thought was true and discovers the beauty of letting go.
If you consider yourself spiritual but not religious, then you're going to love this inspirational book. And if you want to lead a simple and uncomplicated life with happiness at your fingertips, then you'll want to hear this pause-resister more than once!
"It's not that I'm against religion; I simply don't have one (nor do I believe that we need it to be ethical). My faith is doctrine-free, with a definition of God that doesn't conjure a white man in the sky who dispenses blessings for good behavior and harsh judgments to condemn the bad. That's because I don't believe God does that; religion does. You see, faith is a spiritual practice of continually letting go of certainty, of ego, and of the underlying need to know, while religion is a ceremonial tradition of hanging on, clinging to concrete dogmas, stubborn rigidity, and ageless ritual."
Discover the difference between feelings and emotions, the disparity between truths and facts, and the countless benefits of mindful living.

"Simply, a must read..."
Yes! In fact, I'm re-listening with my 8 yr old boy as he follows along, book in hand. Love sharing this with him.
Listening to Hawkeye's retelling of his near-death experience. Powerful and relatable in all of it's tones and meanings, most importantly that of "letting go" in our day to day lives.
Lots. Hawkeye's elocution, so crisp and controlled, yet natural, flowy, and subtly varied... truly feels like he's right there next to you, open and wholeheartedly sharing his story.
Despite my extensive Audible library from the spiritial and metaphysical to the behavioral and "scientific", from Thich Nhat Hanh to Bertrand Russell to Brene Brown to Aaron Beck, I found Hawkeye's book uniquely refreshing and uniquely insightful. A stand alone of sorts!
Encore, Timber Hawkeye!
"An amazing journey!"
The greatest gift you can give yourself is letting go of the things that hold you back.
The wisdom and insight found inside Faithfully Religionless is powerful yet simple enough to embrace. The whole book feels as if Timber Hawkeye is speaking to you as a mentor and as a friend. After reading it I realized that I need to let go and there are many things I need to unlearn.
The flow of this book makes it a quick read if you have a day to enjoy it. Though it is one you'll be want to read over and over again savoring it. Each time you will still learn something new.
"Faithfully Religionless is a MUST-READ!"
Both are excellent! Audio is extremely convenient and emotionally contagious. Loved it. This book made me want to embrace my personal traditions in new ways.
It made you want to live with more compassion and acceptance while taking full responsibility for your life.
He made you feel like you were listening to a good friend. His voice was great!
It was an all around excellent book and reading. Inspiring, enlightening and filled full of truth.
"A truly inspiring read"
Timber Hawkeyes shares his experiences honestly, openly, and with clarity. In his new book he provides a realistic view for examining ones own life situations through his own experiences. I would recommend this book to everyone.
"Great personal story"
A must read. Inspirational just like his first book but with great examples from his own life. if you liked Buddhist Boot camp, you'll like this one.
"Heart warming and peaceful"
I liked the simplicity and honesty of the message in this book, narration was also very nice
"Respectful, thought provoking, and liberating!"
Thank you! Every word of this book is insightful and encouraging. No fluff or padding, just true wisdom. Thank you.
"Raising Your Spiritual Life"
Loved it Great Wisdom from Life of the Author and mixed with great proverbs of others
If you have ever seen Timber on YouTube, then this is just how he narrates. It is a warm, friendly conversation that you are invited to listen to.
The journey this book takes you on traces Timber's highs and lows and how he learned from them and encourages others to learn from too.
I have read his previous book at least three times and highly recommend this - regardless of whether you have read Buddhist Boot Camp on not. When my kids are old enough, I will be encouraging them to read this also.
"There is so much to gain from this book that reading it once is not enough"
There was nothing that I disliked. I enjoyed all of it and will reread it again and again. There is so many things to grasp that one read isn't enough.
"An absolute must read/listen"
Never really fully listened to an audio book before but since having encephalitis I lack the concentration to read for long.
I love Timber and it's like having a conversation with a best friend who gives the most amazing non judgemental advice ✌🏻️ I recommend Buddhist boot camp to everyone I know and this is just as amazing. Timbers books are life changing stuff - namaste
