Gerald R. Stanek edited the description of The Road to Shambhala Monday, November 19, 2012.
From the author of Skirting the Gorge, and The Eighth House comes a new novel of initiation. Brendon Pearce has no faith in faith. He doesn’t believe in thinking his way into positive places like his sister Cassidy. He doesn’t believe in psychics or spirit guides, but they believe in him. Seeking a new life, or at least an escape from his old one, Brendon finds himself among artists, UFO enthusiasts, healers and psychics, who urge him to take advantage of his opportunities, and ‘conquer the lower three worlds’. His life is soon filled with intimations, portents, and unexplained phenomena. With their encouragement, he begins to learn the truth about himself, the Earth, and the cosmos. For Brendon, the road to Shambhala leads through Ojai, Sedona, dreams, and of course, the heart.
