 Volunteerism and Love are at the Heart of Robert’s Clancy’s

                                 “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Soul”  


An Evocative Collection of Inspirational Stories and Transcendental Journeys That Transform the Way You Think About Community Service and Humanity

“Daily Downloads and Fortune Cookies from the Universe” is Clancy’s Second Book Delivering Nuggets of Inspiration Every Day

Clancy says that “soul hitches” occur every day in interactions with others: any interaction-large or small that changes how one view oneself, an event or the world. A chance run-in with a stranger or an intimate conversation with a family member creates an indelible imprint on our soul. You hitch a ride on someone’ else’s soul and you are changed forever. Consider it hitching a ride on a big beautiful cosmic highway!

And how does one experience more of these incredible life-altering experiences? One amazing way is by volunteering by putting yourself out in the world to help others. Says Clancy, “The more you reach out and help others, the more you’ll be guided on your highway naturally.”

bookWelcome to Clancy’s inspiring book:“The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Soul: A Collection of Scenic Views of Volunteerism, Transcendental Encounters with Kindred Spirits and Lessons in Compassion.”

The book is a soul-filled travelogue of experiences in which volunteerism is the catalyst for life-changing events and joyful interaction. The book is born from Clancy’s own passion to serve, which began when he was just six years old. He is an entrepreneur, inspirational speaker, ordained minister, master martial arts instructor in both Tae Kwon Do & Chon-Tu Kwan Hapkido.  Clancy is a published author from the heart of upstate New York who experienced a life-defining spiritual experience at the age of 19 that he writes about in his upcoming book with the working title, Soul Cyphers – Decoding a Life of Hope and Happiness

Today, he blends his beautiful consciousness into his business life as co-founder and managing partner of Spiral Design Studio, one of the largest full-service graphic design and web development firms in the Northeast. Spiral Design’s clients include dozens of corporations, educational & healthcare organizations, non-profits and startups, including Citigroup, Home Depot, Sears, Activision, Disney, among many others.

RICHARD CLANCYBalancing his corporate commitments with his lifelong love and compassion for humanity, Clancy supports ongoing volunteerism within his business and his everyday life. His dedication to community – at both the regional and national levels – inspires his team and encourages youth, as well as professional leaders, to step up and give back.

Says legendary actor, author, and philanthropist Hugh O’Brian, who wrote the book’s foreword, “Robert is one of those people to whom I tip my hat. He is a dedicated volunteer who completely embodies the spirit of service-a selfless commitment to helping others to make a positive difference in the world.”http://hoby.org  

However, Clancy may best be known by the general public for his Facebook fan page “Robert Clancy-Guide to the Soul” which has a quarter of a million followers worldwide. Here he offers divinely inspired thoughts and reflections that provide wisdom, thoughtfulness, and encouragement to people hungry to get more out of life.

And so it follows naturally, that his second book Daily Downloads and Fortune Cookies from the Universe, provides inspirational thoughts within nine uplifting categories–faith, hope, love, compassion, giving, peace, happiness, strength, and leadership–to help center one’s spirit and encourage compassion for humanity. This collection of nuggets is guaranteed to put a smile on someone’s face, create a cozy warmth and motivate one to make a difference.
