Inspired by Hermits, 31 Oct. 2006
Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits is an extraordinary tale of one man's persistance to delve deeply into the journey of solitude taken by master's of the art. His profiles of Chinese hermits offer glimpses into the lives of these men that inspire the search that many of us make to live lives that make room for solitude whether it is for a few minutes, hours or days. While most of us cannot or will not retreat deep into the mountains or forests to enter solitude, this book reminds us that each can make his own journey inward and find meaning in even the briefest moments of solitude. This rich tapestry of stories shows that there is as many ways to embrace and honor solitude as there are people who seek it.
