unSpiritual: A Spiritual Journey
On Amazon HERE
Christopher Zzenn Loren’s account of his journey through the realms of spirit is an epic, amazing adventure. From his early years of abuse, through being trapped in a Christian cult, to his journey through the confusing realms of the New Age, anyone who has ever followed a life of spirituality will recognize their own experience in this inspiring, first-hand account.
Zzen’s compassionate and compelling voice allows the reader to relax and be carried along by this deeply human and moving account. The final denouement, Zen’s experience with a massive kundalini release, is a fitting capstone to what is, in truth, an amazing and eye-opening, and very human, experience.

I have been on “the Path” for 25 years, and have read tons, especially in the early years. This one is on the top of the list. If one is ready, has the courage, openness of mind to challenge personal “spiritual” beliefs, and enjoys a beautiful, flowing, poetic style of writing, Get it! Actually, I challenge everyone in Sedona to read this epic story, as part of it happened here to one of our precious brothers. Love you Zzenn.

There is so much in this volume that I can’t say enough how deeply potent it is. For any spiritual seeker I recommend reading this book over and over and taking notes. The 19 spiritual keys are true pearls that can unlock doors and assist the seeker through the many obstacles along the path. The kundalini experience is by far one of the most revealing expose’ on the topic. There secrets in this book that are priceless.

Getting in touch with my inner self has been a spiritual awakening. All that I thought was true and have suppressed for fear of ridicule is now coming to light and is so spiritually liberating. Since I have been reading your books, I have found a peaceful place I have not known before. Being a slave to fear has diminished and in its place has emerged a sense of control, a control over my inner-self. Fear that created a sense of uncontrolled supernatural occurrences have all disappeared. The fear of good and evil is so destructive and disabling, no wonder it is used to control the masses. I’m at a good place, I know I will stumble and at times become frustrated, but I will stay focused.

No more excuses from so-called mystical experts, no more lies. I am fed up and have been for a while. I cannot tell you how much this book is needed. This book is a breath of fresh air, one I am truly grateful for. It is well thought-out, well-written, and funny. I stayed up way past my bedtime because I couldn’t put it down”
That missing link we were waiting for! Wonderful! It made me cry! But not because of a nostalgic feeling of lost mysticism but more because of a new sense of freedom. As if a heavy weight would be lifted and a marvelous landscape of natural wonders was waiting, already there, ready to be discovered. I think this book is the missing link between Science and Spirituality. It is the long awaited reunion of Nature and our Subjective, as the coming back together of two twin siblings separated at birth. It is also a pleasure to read somebody’s visions so clearly, without presumptions or any kind of obligation from our part to take sides, agree or disagree. I highly recommend this book. The discoveries offered by Christopher Loren, based on evidence and a deep understanding of the human inner world, are unique and priceless. An opportunity to grow, not to be missed!
Life Changing! “Permission To Be Human” is a must read for anyone who has traveled or is curious about the who am I and where did I come from journey. The information in this book opens so many doors into the human psyche. Christopher Loren writes from experience and the heart. A book I could not put down. Looking forward to the next one!
Must Read for all religious and spiritual people! This book is what I have been looking for years. Growing up in Christian family I couldn’t fully separate my own thoughts about life from the once programmed on me by religion. As I grew older I have realized I could no longer hold to these implanted beliefs. Trying to fulfill the gap I got fascinated with spirituality and new age and again the more I knew the more I felt trapped and uncomfortable. It came to a point that I had to erase all of my beliefs and question everything I have learned in my whole life. Christopher Loren’s book helped me to answer a lot of questions about my psyche and our human nature especially how foolish of us to always search for invisible as we are convinced we are not wholesome without this missing link. His discoveries and insights are deep analysis of humanity in light of historical and scientific aspects. I am truly amazed by his perspectives and ability to illustrate his personal journey to freedom.
Read this and think about your own life experiences compared with the values in your own heart. Provoking book, and glad to read about this man’s experiences, because they parallel my own. There is much more to this conversation, however. I would add CATASTROPHISM to the subject, the works of Velikovsky, etc., and more historical information about WHO created the religions we tend to follow and FOR WHAT PURPOSES. Leaving churches and newagery behind is not just a personal choice, it is a personal response to false history and false education, which are the real problems, IMO.
I bought your book because of this beautiful prose. I wanted to say that this book touched upon everything I feel. I have been reading it several times. I consider myself in my tradition as druid . I loved how eloquently explained how we have plagiarized the spirituality of others and taken the credit from those whom credit is due and have alienated ourselves from the real world of nature and made nature and the body as inferior. This writing is by far the most beautiful and important message to the human condition. Thank you for devoting your time for something which not only touched upon my heart but also my intellect. Keep up the good work. I am looking forward to future writings you do. Thank you and and best of health and success.
Natural Philosopher. Delve into the realm of un-spirituality with this engaging, thoughtful, and entertainingly-written book. Christopher Loren distinguishes between religion and spirituality, and argues against superstition of any kind and in favor of a nature-based understanding of the human condition. In his metaphysical quest for meaning, he doesn’t settle for claims about invisible worlds and powers that govern our lives. (He notes that the invisible and the non-existent look exactly the same.) He wants to be honest about what we know subjectively vs. what we can prove to be true.
He dissects spiritualism and looks for evolutionary origins for our ideas about God and the afterlife. Its essence is captured in our myths. Those myths stray into New Age ideas like “quantum consciousness” and other woozy propositions that try to sound scientific but are in fact subjective beliefs. For Loren, reality is found in nature and a rational understanding of it. He finds much more grandeur in evolution’s story of life’s origins than that in any religious myth. Nature is a wonder and we are a wonderful part of it. Let’s get real, think clearly, and enjoy it!

An excellent disquisition about metaphysical absurdities. When it comes to acknowledging the subject of irrational assertions posed through new-age/spiritual woo-woo, Christopher Loren lights the way into a murky underbelly with open awareness and certainty that helps the reader take back what it means to be human. His personal experiences guide the reader into the process of debunking metaphysical jargon, packed with great examples about deconstructing the supernatural and how subjective hijacking is responsible for metaphysical claims build on emotional desires throughout mystical teachings–which spring into present day, run-of-the-mill cults that disillusion impressionable minds at the prime of their emotional lives. Are you interested in learning about humanity, growth, awareness, and standing up for the truth? If so, this book is for you.
I decided to share about Christopher Loren on my website as I feel that his new book is very much on par with our EOF Project. In fact, it’s pretty rare that you come across someone like Christopher and his brilliant way of sharing his message. It just felt so complimentary that I knew I wanted to join forces with this guy. He and I both had a religious upbringing and after getting into and getting out of spirituality, well, I could really relate to him and his journey. Christopher just “gets it” and sees the bigger picture.
He brings an approach to his work which adds an interesting layer of fresh perspective in educating masses out there. We at EOF (End of Fear) are very excited to partner with Christopher on future endeavors. I hope you find Christopher and his content as interesting and helpful as I do.
I read his whole book in one sitting, I could not put it down. I made tons of notes to him as I read it. Afterwards, I felt compelled to write a testimonial about his message.
Christopher Loren is a pioneer paving the way for future generations to think for themselves by helping them understand and remove the obstruction of beliefs, be it religious or spiritual, that are in way. These obstructive beliefs have stagnated the human psyche and our own collective evolution.
In his book, cleverly and profoundly titled, “unSpirituality- Permission to be Human” he goes into the archeology of our psyche exploring and exposing the dangers of thinking and living with such beliefs. He often mentions that promoting such beliefs should be considered child abuse, and, when you read his evidence, it is easy to see where this is all heading if we continue in this way as a species.
As a former spiritual speaker, I know, firsthand, the dangers of promoting such thinking, and it takes a lot of courage to stand up to all the opposition to point this out in such an elegant and clear way as Christopher does. To think and find out, for ourselves, is to be responsible and psychologically free.
Finally, we can stop being in a state of anti-life and excel our evolution and co-create with all of nature. It is refreshing to hear him share that we are “nature itself” and that is something to embrace—there is nothing more beautiful and wonderful then that. I look forward to working and spreading the complimentary message with him in future endeavors.
Thank you Christopher for giving this gift to not just the world, but all nature as well.
This is more than just a book – it is a whole new philosophy. Finally, a book that connects! I began reading Christopher Loren’s “unSpirituality” a few days ago. Once I started it, I could not put it down. The author fearlessly takes you on an intimate journey through his past and into his current state of humanness. I identified with Christopher’s personal story, as it was similar to my own. I’m certain it is similar to most people’s experiences as well. This author took the courageous step by putting it out there for the world to see, and I am honored that he did.
The deeper I got into the book the more I felt that this was more than just a good read – it is a whole new way of living. The author found a way, in my opinion, to open the reader’s heart and mind, and allow true healing to begin.
Everything that I knew to be true within myself was poetically described on the pages of “unSpirituality.”What I took away from this book was simply this: It gave me the permission to be unapologetically me; to trust the instincts I had suppressed for decades, and allow them to finally surface; and allow myself to live my authentic life. What a relief!
This is an extraordinary, liberating book. Christopher Loren has stumbled upon a new philosophy of living, one of the great pioneers of our time. Perhaps a bit controversial and cutting-edge, which is exactly the type of author I love to read. He is exactly the type of author the world has been waiting for.
After reading this book, I can say I am changed forever. I no longer see things the way I saw them before. My mind is open and the possibilities to my personal healing are unlimited. I am grateful for the gift that Christopher Loren is to the world, and for this tremendous book. Thank you, sir.
