Inner Pilgrimage: Ten Days to a Mindful Me captures the dramatic transformation that the author experienced as a result of attending a silent retreat. Inner Pilgrimage is in an inviting memoir format, but reads like fiction. Although peppered with spiritual mumbo-jumbo, the book's non-spiritual message is clear to the lay person: Developing the faculties of self-awareness and empathy allows individuals to not only nurture their emotional maturity, but also helps them create a deeply satisfying life of freedom.

A young woman's yearning for inner peace is about to be realized at a trip to the woods to unlock the secrets of the ever-thinking mind. Hosted by spiritual master S. N. Goenka, a ten-day meditation retreat she attends irrevocably alters her perspective...and her future.
Inner Pilgrimage: Ten Days to a Mindful Me is a comprehensive, moment-by-moment description of the author's ten-day vipassana meditation retreat. The story unfolds with her arrival at the retreat as an ordinary being seeking a calmer, more centered existence. Sacrificing every luxury and self-indulgence, and following a rigid daily routine that excludes reading, writing, praying, listening to music, watching television, and talking, the author spends ten hours everyday, meditating.
Inner Pilgrimage provides rich imagery and clearly articulated details of the author's physical experience and her mental & emotional states, during sustained meditation. It provides a compelling insight into her experience of discovering the realm and rewards of vipassana meditation.
Inner Pilgrimage is one practitioner's personal spiritual journey. It is an inspiration to others looking to transform their restlessness and judgmental tendencies, into having an inner calm and heightened awareness that together nurture and enhance spiritual growth.
