This book is a must for anyone yearning to more fully awaken and respond to the spirit within.
Radiance in These Pages
This book is truly amazing--AMAZING!!! I am awed by the very hard work Ms. LaRue did to stay alert and conscious throughout her quest so that she was able to watch each twist, each turn of her thinking, her behavior, her fears, her doubts--apparently, anything that arose within her consciousness. This is truly an awesome accomplishment. And it is clear she has come to know these twists and turns with deep intimacy because their explication poured forth with utter clarity!!
The author has shared so deeply, so fully and honestly her experiences of coming "undone" that I can see my own process of coming 'undone' and be more accepting of it, not struggle against it so much. Her words reverberate within my very being; Ms. LaRue is not just talking about the importance of the hero's journey, she is relating/giving blow by blow commentary OF the hero's journey. This is priceless.
Her expressions soar with wisdom, truth and open vulnerability that calls us each to our own. She has witnessed Truth and offers it back so that we can hear it within ourselves. This is the best (and really the only) kind of teaching. It absolutely sings! -Pamela Pride
So Fully Present...
This is a facinating and highly personal account of one woman's journey into the deeper well of self. The willingness, the invitation to know the soul is conciously intended and what happens is often unexpected and takes us down. A profound undoing that changes us forever. This is the journey we are taken into with the author. It is THE journey, the one we all take that answer the call to true authenticity. The road less traveled. I love reading accounts like this, one so personal that it feels like you are sitting right next to her while reading, more like real listening and hearing that happens in a face to face conversation.Through the personal account comes the universal, the experiences we can all relate to that are the helpfull signposts of making the journey. This book takes it place in the lineage of other noted works that support all of us called to Conciousness. My heartfelt thanks to Ronda LaRue. Keep writing. -J. Werner
