A spiritual love story, crossing cultural boundaries, that is rooted in self discovery and redemption. Near death ceremonial experiences that evolve into real life affirmations. A journey through mental illness that culminates in spiritual discovery, healing, and hope.
A spiritual memoir told in first person by the author, who takes the journey seriously while not taking himself too seriously at all. The story traces his journey from his introduction to his teachers through multiple ceremonies and culminates in his becoming a Sundancer. Interwoven with this narrative is the concurrent story of his wife, who is diagnosed with debilitating mental illness and endures multiple psychiatric hospitalizations. The couple use the teaching and practices of the Red Road to help her heal and ultimately strengthen their marriage that now extends to almost 40 years.
