Who am I? Where did I come from? Where am I going?

Spirituality 101: by Ivan Figueroa-Otero, MD

New author Ivan Figueroa-Otero, MD has embarked in a long quest of self-discovery that originates from the conflicting views of his scientific background and his religious upbringing. His first book, Spirituality 101: For the Dropouts of the School of Life, Dr. Figueroa-Otero not only dares to answer timeless questions about our spiritual nature, but humbly presents a guide to self-understanding while closing the apparent gap between the religious and scientific vision with an eclectic and original delivery.

San Juan - "In the School Of Life there are no grades or organized curriculum. Everyone comes to learn and progress in specific areas, and your lessons are structured by your daily life. It's as if the curriculum were created while you learn. Each experience is a new opportunity to grow and develop as whole beings, and everyone decides when he or she has learned sufficiently to move on to the next course." Ivan Figueroa-Otero, MD writes a compelling book about living in a spiritual world that is so easy to understand that it becomes elegant in its simplicity. A Pediatric Surgeon for many years, Dr. Figueroa-Otero now dedicates his practice to the application of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture for disease prevention and modifying lifestyles. He applied his abilities as a researcher and scientist to engage in a path of self discovery, and now shares his discoveries in a fun, interesting format.

"The book arises from my need to share my school of life experiences in a light textbook format. In it, I share my scholastic "lessons" for readers to try them out in a non-imposing manner, knowing they can also find alternative solutions." Dr. Figueroa-Otero wants to shed light in those areas of our spirituality that are usually ignored because they are deemed "too difficult" to handle.

"Spirituality 101 is a book about life and how us humans can reconcile the apparent discrepancies in trying to understand life through either science or religion. No matter your religious beliefs, this book teaches you how to live la balanced life within this existential paradox." Samantha Rivera, for Reader's Favorite.

An immediate best-seller and with great reader's reviews, the book is a Finalist in the 2014 National Indie Excellence Awards. "Your book truly embodies the excellence that this award was created to celebrate, and we salute you and your fine work." National Indie Review.

This inspirational book has been self-published by Dr. Figueroa-Otero and distributed worldwide as of January, 2014, and is available in print and electronic formats.
