About this title

Synopsis:

A Spiritual Adventure and an Earthly Mission When Jadeine Shives learned of the Maha Kumbha Mela, India's most sacred spiritual festival in centuries, there was no question in her mind that she would be there. No obstacle on this earth was big enough to keep her away. Jadeine started out taking the trip for herself. She ended up taking us with her, every step of the way. In the most available, intimate, inclusive manner possible, she opened her heart and her mind and let us walk in. Digging a Well to Heaven sweeps us along on Jadeine's nonstop adventure of wonder and self-discovery. It shares the challenges of freezing nights and scorching days, and a raging fever that raised real concern for her very survivial. It leads us through the sublime experiences conversing with saints and kneeling before ancient holy shrines. All of this is reward enough in itself. Yet the power of this chronicle takes us deeper. We are guided from the guttural rumblings of earthquakes in the jungle to spiritual awakenings so expansive they are almost beyond what the human heart can hold. We see the seemingly steady stream of miracles through the wonder of Jadeine's own eyes, and receive an almost mystical transmission direct from her heart. We start at home, in Florida, and join her as the whole experience transforms from mere dreams to an incredible reality, terrifying nightmares to fulfilled wishes. Walking the dusty path beside the sacred Ganges River, we join Jadeine as she enters the space of her heart and battles every inner demon she encounters. Her pilgrimage of tears and triumph becomes our own. The India adventure, with miracles and maladies, is nonstop revelation. We find ourselves with her when the intensity of the sights, sounds, and humanity of this far-off land awakened in her the calling to bring water to the thirsty lips of the Indian people. Finally, we come full circle back home where the real work begins. If India is tugging at your heart, Digging a Well to Heaven will take you there and beyond.
