Inner Journeys: Explorations of the Soul started as as an idea that I shared one day at a workshop with Dolores ashcroft-Nowicki. To my utter amazement, she thought it was a fabulous idea and she encouraged me from start to finish..
The concept was to write about what brought me to a 5-year course with the SOL that involved meditation every day more or less for those 5-years. So, despite the fact I am really a nobody, the book is strongly autobiographical but I hope that in it people see shared experiences.
The second half of the book are the real experiences I had with the course including how I learned to relax, meditate effectively and what I learned about myself in those moments of deep meditation.
I used extracts from my own ‘magical’ diary to reinforce my account of these experiences and insights because, often, after a meditation session, I found myself temporarily in a different and much clearer frame of mind. The diary extracts I think demonstrate this.
At the end of the day, I see the book as hopefully something that new and existing students will find useful, humorous, truthful and encouraging.
Hopefully, in the very near future, I will finally complete the publication of what I experienced and what insights came through with the publication of The Mystical Hexagram: The Seven Inner Stars of Power which I wrote with a lot of assistance from my co-author – SC Vincent.
