In this book Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee describes the intoxicating intensity of his own spiritual journey, which began when he was sixteen. Three years later he met his teacher and felt a sense of belonging beyond this world. The events that follow over the next twenty-two years tell of tremendous love, psychological breakdown, craziness, bliss, and the slow work of balancing the two worlds-the inner world of the spirit and the outer demands of everyday family life. This autobiography tells the ancient story of a spiritual transformation, one that took him into the terrifying depths and pushed him beyond every limit. As it made him vulnerable and empty, love showed him her hidden face.
