From the Inside Flap
Her most controversial book is one you will never forget. An outspoken thinker, a celebrated actress, a truly independent woman, Shirley MacLaine goes beyond her previous two bestsellers to take us on an intimate yet powerful journey into her personal life and inner self. An intense, clandestine love affair with a prominent politician sparks Shirley MacLaine's quest of self-discovery. From Stockholm to Hawaii to the mountain vastness of Peru, from disbelief to radiant affirmation, she at last discovers the roots of her very existence. . . and the infinite possibilities of life. Shirley MacLaine opens her heart to explore the meaning of a great and enduring passion with her lover Gerry; the mystery of her soul's connection with her best friend David; the tantalizing secrets behind a great actor's inspiration with the late Peter Sellers. And through it all, Shirley MacLaine's courage and candor new doors, new insights, new revelations-and a luminous new world she invites us all to share.

interesting nowadays as it was then.
Shirley MacLaine took her movie career to a risk when she published
this personal biographic book about her growing spirituality. Included
are her experiences with re-incarnation, channelling and encounters
with a variety of intriguing and path waving personalities.
I read through this book while on holiday in Marocco (1989) in just three
days (nights really) and it changed my life completely. Since then I
made my experiences with my own former incarnations, became a Reiki
master/teacher and learned how to channel. Along the line I wrote a
thank-you letter to Shirley and received an encouraging answer.
To advise people on how to find their own kind of spirituality is
always difficult, as this is such an individual process. But I can
full-heartedly recommend this book any time. After reading it you
can always decide for yourself if you leave it or take it.
In that order. Good Luck!
Shirley Maclaine's style of writing is totally engaging and she has you completely spellbound. I could relate to a lot of what she wrote here from her far flung travels to her spiritual enlightenment. A truly fascinating woman.
I especially loved the story about what Peter Sellers imparted to her in one of their many conversations in their actors trailer on set and her OBE in Peru. Priceless..
When you get an individual of this calibre and acclaim poke their head so high about the parapet on such subjects as spirituality, you have to applaud it.
Great Job (as the americans say) Ms Maclaine!!! You would be a very enteraining guest at anyones dinner party.
Can't wait to read some of her other books!
