About this title


For over eighteen years I've been living with terminal illness...A.L.S., better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. At the time I was diagnosed in late 1996 the doctors told me I had at most two years left to live. The reasons I've survived against all odds and continue healing form the basis for this book. My story chronicles the search for an answer to my incurable plight outside mainstream medicine's end-of-the-road diagnosis. It highlights my journey to Brazil to seek out a powerful healer renowned for treating diverse illnesses for which there are no known cures. It follows me as my entire worldview is sent spinning out of control as I'm introduced to an extraordinary new reality where anything...even the possible. Drawing on extensive private journal entries interspersed throughout my fantastic tale I create twin storylines: one raw and deeply personal, the other as a more objective observer. I'm led to insights into why disease occurred and slowly discover what it was there to teach me. Acting as a kind of spiritual anthropologist...a numenographer...I partake in any experience that will put me in touch with answers not found in the established paradigm: shamanic journeywork, taking ayahuasca in a Santo Daime ritual, being tutored by a Russian psychic and energy healer in how to access information contained in the Akashic records, accessing past lives, participating in the soul retrieval process and discovering that I am a medium. These transformative vehicles deliver me to levels of personal growth, healing and awakening far surpassing even my original manic quest to find a cure for the remediless. By delving into the psycho-emotional root causes that ultimately manifest as bodily disease, I begin connecting with revelations that lead me to the resolution of my true dilemma. My story traces an unprecedented path to locating a cure that eventually becomes the pursuit of a wholeness long absent from my life.
