5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and direct writing., 15 Feb. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Greyhound travel across America, really inspiring. She just up and went, with very few belongings and a relatively open plan. Made me want to buy a ticket too!
Funny and direct writing. Nicely illustrates the combination of freedom and anonymity, that low-cost travel and middle age afforded the author. People met along the way would be difficult to invent..the truth is stranger than fiction! Great interaction involving a Native American and some pistachio nuts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sound advice, delivered in a warm and sincere way., 15 Feb. 2008
Whole-heartedly recommend this book! Sound advice, delivered in a warm and sincere way, almost like hearing it from a firm, yet loving grandparent.

Firstly talking through the reluctance to leave the warm, familiar darkness of `The Cocoon', symbolically representing the ignorance of denial, then leading through the journey towards `The Eastern Sun', helping open up a more enlightened viewpoint along the way.

Including developing loving kindness/ raising the strength of `Wind Horse' energy/ establishing the right perspective to walk tall with confidence/ guidance on how to represent yourself physically in the world/ awareness of the characteristics of the true warrior/ understanding fearlessness as moving through and beyond your restrictions.

Emphasis is given to learning the wisdom of accepting self-responsibility and knowing that the foundation of all spiritual growth is firstly attending to ones own problems, fears and behavior. Recognizing that before we can try to solve these things in the world around us, we ourselves must be acting from a place of peaceful open willingness.

Contact details of international groups following 'The path of the Warrior' can be found at the back of the book.
