If I could have ONLY ONE BOOK, I WOULD WANT THIS ONE! Written in rich and beautiful language, it takes us on a journey visiting a dazzling variety of places, people and cultures, often not easy to get to or be with. It also takes us through an internal journey from trauma to letting go. There are many stories in this wonderful book.
There is the story about the body being a messenger of the unconscious, a source of challenge and triumph. There is the story about connection and solitude, about dependency and independence, about competence and resourcefulness. There is a story about personal relationships told with courage and generous openness. There is a story about animals love, loss, and sadness. There are many stories about mountains and oceans and dangers and triumphs. There is a story about being a psychoanalyst and becoming a Buddhist. There is a story about illness and overcoming the fear of death. There is the story about the end of the journey and stepping into freedom.
THIS IS TRULY A “CAN’T PUT IT DOWN BOOK,” LEAVING YOU AWED, INSPIRED, AND GRATEFUL!
