Path of a Seeker: Passages, Pilgrimages, and Personal Transformations

The path of spiritual seeking is a spiral, a pulsation back and forth of challenges unique to each of us. Through our own experiences, we learn and find our way. The quest for inner growth means we must understand ourselves at a deeper level; we must change our old stories, release what does not serve us, and find our own deep inner wisdom to heal ourselves. What do you seek?

This book is a collection of articles and essays focusing on personal transformation in a way that is accessible and real, not perfectionist. You will find spiritual experiences that are shattering moments of bliss, dark nights of the soul, challenges with mental health, struggling with trauma and grief…and stories of love, of facing our shadows, of growing healthy boundaries and self-confidence, of reclaiming our power. The journey brings us from heartbreak into joy, love, and authenticity.

Why do you seek the inner mysteries?  What do you yearn for?

DreamworkCover Dreamwork for the Initiate’s Path

Dreamwork is a core part of the path of seekers and initiates. Learn basic and in-depth techniques to work with your dreams in a concise, easy-to-understand way. This includes: remembering your dreams, exploring dream symbolism, unraveling nightmares, working with spiritual/personal transformation, better understanding prophetic dreams, and exploring your mythic and deeply internal programming.

Working with our dreams is a potent way to understand and explore ourselves at a deeper level. Our nightmares show us our fears, other dreams show us our power, a glimpse of the future, or bring messages from the divine.

In our dreams, we face many situations that we never would in the waking world. You might achieve the Grail or find yourself terrified, falling from an airplane into a night-dark sea. Dreams are multi-layered and difficult to unravel, but they will tell you more about yourself than you might believe.
