From the Author:

The Author Patricia Bloise e-mail wtrmrk@atlantic.net... EVERYONE DANCES WITH THE SERPENT....and EVERYONE HAS AN INNER VISION....I chose to share my private vision in this public way, in this story, because I believe there is a fundamental need we all have as human beings to be heard and to be understood.

And because I know there is a common thread of experience that links us all as parts drawn into the whole. Therefore my experience and yours must converge at some place in time. I do not know when that will be but I know it must happen. I believe the time has come finally in this new age for old ideas that have rigidly defined reality in terms of consensual agreement be jettisoned from the collective mind. Dancing with the serpent is an attempt to relinquish some of those old ideas. Those awful fears and guilts and shamings that lie buried in the subconscious soil of each one of us....the new age before us speaks of a universal consciousness of love and unconditional abundance....but there is still work to do...we are the children of a higher age...but not yet fully the children of light we were meant to be....I pray my story may highlight the source and substance of some of the ancient demons that now need be put to rest.....

From the Back Cover:

Bi-Polar disorder the kindling of kundalini?

For thousands of years the ancient teachings of Eastern mysticism have supported a belief in kundalini. It has been described as, "the sleeping serpent at the base of the spine," or in another equally mysterious way as, "the curl of the beloved's hair." It has been described as both wonderful and dangerous by different writers. Some have described it as a form of energy. Others have claimed it is a state of consciousness. Some say it is imaginary and does not exist at all.

Can this ancient theory of kundalini provide insight into the workings of the modern brain? Can the knowledge of the mystics find a place in helping us understand brain disorders such as manic-depression and schizophrenia? Can modern psychiatry provide answers to questions about the body/mind connection and brain disorders based purely on a scientific model if man is a spiritual being who also has a soul?

What about spontaneous past life memories? Can people really have these? Do people sometimes tap into too much awareness and become confused and disoriented?

Join Patricia Anne Bloise as she shares a psychic journey from madness to salvation. A journey of courage that reaches into the soul, transcending points of darkness and emerging finally into the light!
